But that you may know that the Son of man has power on earth to forgive sins, (he said to the sick of the palsy,) I say to you, Arise, and take up your couch, and go into your house.
But their scribes and Pharisees murmured against his disciples, saying, Why do you eat and drink with publicans and sinners?
And Jesus answering said to them, They that are whole need not a physician; but they that are sick.
I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.
And they said to him, Why do the disciples of John fast often, and make prayers, and likewise the disciples of the Pharisees; but your disciples eat
And he said to them, Can you make the children of the bridal chamber fast, while the bridegroom is with them?
But the days will come, when the bridegroom shall be taken away from them, and then shall they fast in those days.
For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior;
Who will have all men to be saved, and to come to the knowledge of the truth.
1 Tim. 2:3,4
*You see Jesus wants everyone to be saved. It doesn’t matter tribe, colour, etc
The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is long-suffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
2 Pet 3:9,
For so has the Lord commanded us, saying, I have set you to be a light of the Gentiles, that you should be for salvation to the ends of the earth.
And he said, It is a light thing that you should be my servant to raise up the tribes of Jacob, and to restore the preserved of Israel: I will also give you for a light to the Gentiles, that you may be my salvation to the end of the earth.
Fear you not; for I am with you: be not dismayed; for I am your God: I will strengthen you; yes, I will help you; yes, I will uphold you with the right hand of my righteousness.
But you, Israel, are my servant, Jacob whom I have chosen, the seed of Abraham my friend.
A light to lighten the Gentiles, and the glory of Thy people Israel.
Gentiles are in darkness, so the Bible says, and need to come out of the darkness that they are in and get to the marvelous light of the Lord which is in Seventh Day Adventist Church. Okay,okay, okay which is this darkness that they are in? The false doctrines. Eg
- Baptizing children
- A believe in the immortality of the soul, which Ezek.18:4 & 20 refutes
- When taking the holy Communion there is no foot washing, yet John.13:5 Christ Himself washed the feet of His disciples and in verse 15. Jesus said that He had given us an example,for us to do as He had done.
Plus so many other doctrines that are false.
NB. The truth shall set you free, I know I have brushed someone’s ego, but that’s zero, I care about your soul and when you read Ezekiel.33 you will understand why I must point out errors and misunderstandings, peradventure I will draw some to the truth and have them follow Jesus, who is our life.
