ON VIDEO [ This Sunday I spoke on the verses from the Mass as well as a few verses from Rock City Church]

.The commandments SHALL be in you
.Moses and Joshua also said the people would not keep them
.Why? Even though they were given the law- yet- until the time of Christ and the New Covenant- the law would only reveal their sin
.Jesus quotes Moses- and ‘adds’ to it- the great commandment- Love God- and man
.The 4 questions in Mark 12
.Of course- Jesus wins the debate- every time
.Overview of Paul in Acts
.How does Psalm 110 fit in today’s reading?
.After Jesus silences the critics- the common people loved it- why?
.Jesus ‘broke’ the religious customs of his day- and showed the true nature of the kingdom
.Some church history-
.Luther and John Hus- how did Luther fulfil the prophecy of the swan? http://lutheranpress.com/the-swan/

Isaiah 31:4
For thus hath the Lord spoken unto me, Like as the lion and the young lion roaring on his prey, when a multitude of shepherds is called forth against him, he will not be afraid of their voice, nor abase himself for the noise of them: so shall the Lord of hosts come down to fight for mount Zion, and for the hill thereof.

TEACHING [Past posts below]
This day I went to rock city church and taught on some of the verses from the Mass-
There was 1 verse that a girl talked about in her testimony at Rock city Church and I decided to use that verse for this teaching as well-
Ezekiel 36:26 A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh.Ezekiel 36:27 And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them.
From the Mass we read-
Deuteronomy 6:2 That thou mightest fear the LORD thy God, to keep all his statutes and his commandments, which I command thee, thou, and thy son, and thy son’s son, all the days of thy life; and that thy days may be prolonged.
Deuteronomy 6:3 Hear therefore, O Israel, and observe to do it; that it may be well with thee, and that ye may increase mightily, as the LORD God of thy fathers hath promised thee, in the land that floweth with milk and honey.
Deuteronomy 6:4 Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD:
Deuteronomy 6:5 And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might.
Deuteronomy 6:6 And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart:
I focused on verse 6.
It is interesting when you read the Old Testament- there were many times where the people of God were told to keep the law-
Yet we also read that they could never really keep it?
These prophecies are all contained in the law itself.
We also read of promises God made to his people that there would be a day when the law would be written on their hearts-

English Standard Version
For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, declares the LORD: I will put my law within them, and I will write it on their hearts. And I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Jer. 31:33
Because of the work of Christ- his death and resurrection- the Spirit would come to all believers- and the work of the law- the actual character of God [of which the law was simply a glimpse] would then indeed be written upon our hearts.
Peter declares that we are partakers of God’s Divine nature-
2 Peter 1:4
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.
I tried to teach this a Little more on the video- but this is truly the message of the Cross- the whole study of Hebrews I have been doing these last few weeks.
The reading from Hebrews for this day [ Hebrews 7:23-28] fits the theme we have been focusing on the last few weeks as well-
I’ll simply add my past commentary on that chapter below.
I also Taught from Mark chapter 12- and hit on the 4 questions that were asked- starting in verse 14 through out the end of the chapter..
Jesus himself asks the last question [of the 4 I taught] and it is in the answer to this question that all else hinges upon-
Mark 12:35 And Jesus answered and said, while he taught in the temple, How say the scribes that Christ is the son of David?
Mark 12:36 For David himself said by the Holy Ghost, The LORD said to my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand, till I make thine enemies thy footstool.
Mark 12:37 David therefore himself calleth him Lord; and whence is he then his son? And the common people heard him gladly.
Matthew’s gospel puts it this way- 
42 Saying, What think ye of Christ? whose son is he? They say unto him, The son of David. Matt, 22
Who is the Christ? How can he be the son of David- and David himself call him lord?
Of course we know the answer today- but for people in the first century- this was indeed a hard question to answer.
I’ll also add my past teaching below on Mark 12-
The conclusion is if we know Christ- the Son of the Living God- then the word- law of God is written upon our hearts.
The prophecies of Ezekiel and Jeremiah have now come true- we have been born of God- born from above-
And what the law could not do- Christ has done for us-
For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh:
That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
Romans 8
Psalm 110:2
The Lord shall send the rod of thy strength out of Zion: rule thou in the midst of thine enemies.

PAST POSTS [These are links and parts of my past teachings that relate in some way to today’s post- Verses below]
Mark 12:25 For when they shall rise from the dead, they neither marry, nor are given in marriage; but are as the angels which are in heaven. Mark 12:26 And as touching the dead, that they rise: have ye not read in the book of Moses, how in the bush God spake unto him, saying, I am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob? Mark 12:27 He is not the God of the dead, but the God of the living: ye therefore do greatly err.
