Scripture points are shared, today, showing again that correct knowledge of and obedience to divine law remain important for eternal life.  The writer at “Yahoo! Answers UK & Ireland” using the ID “Breakthrough” (Level 6 with 11,845 points, a member since June 29, 2013) posted the following:

Why did Jesus say that you have to keep the Commandments to enter life?

THE GOLDEN ARROW:  Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord,  According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:  Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises:  that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.  And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge;  And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness;  And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity.  For if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.  But he that lacketh these things is blind, and cannot see afar off, and hath forgotten that he was purged from his old sins.  Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure:  for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall:  For so an entrance shall be ministered unto you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.  (2nd Peter 1:  2-11, KJV)

THE DOUBLE DAGGER:  There Must Be Permanent Change (07/12/2015); The Law is Not Grievous (06/26/2015); Human Life to Manifest Divine Life? (05/14/2015); What Is Life? (02/06/2015); Divine Purpose? (01/08/2015)

“Breakthrough”, here are a few points shared among Christian believers that may help you understand the otherwise hidden operations of GOD revealed by the Savior’s ministries upon the earth, and from the heaven:

(1.)  Psalms 119:  1-3, King James Version (KJV):  1 Blessed are the undefiled in the way, who walk in the law of the LORD.  2 Blessed are they that keep his testimonies, and that seek him with the whole heart.  3 They also do no iniquity:  they walk in his ways.

(2.)  Psalms 119:  140-144, KJV:  140 Thy word is very pure:  therefore thy servant loveth it.  141 I am small and despised:  yet do not I forget thy precepts.  142 Thy righteousness is an everlasting righteousness, and thy law is the truth.  143 Trouble and anguish have taken hold on me:  yet thy commandments are my delights.  144 The righteousness of thy testimonies is everlasting:  give me understanding, and I shall live.

(3.)  Matthew 7:  19-23, KJV:  19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.  20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.  21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.  22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?  23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you:  depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

(4.)  Matthew 18:  2-3, KJV:  2 And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them,  3 And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.

(5.)  John 3:  4-7, KJV:  4 Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother’s womb, and be born?  5 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.  6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.  7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.

There is far more that could be said, and that must be correctly understood and spiritually taken into account.  (For example (6.)  Revelation 22:  13-15, KJV:  13 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last.  14 Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.  15 For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.)  Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful.  Be it unto you according to your faith.
