Jesus said, “Ye are they which justify yourselves before men; but God knoweth your hearts: for that which is highly esteemed among men is abomination in the sight of God. The law and the prophets were until John: since that time the kingdom of God is preached, and every man presseth into it.”(Luke 16:15-16)
The Jews in Israel, which are the descendants of Jacob’s second wife, like to make their philacteries wider with thread and to call men “Rabbi”. Other men create special rules for their followers to follow so that they feel important before other men in their special “church”. The commandments of men and special clothes do not make us Holy! The words of Jesus are our words for salvation and we must firmly plant our feet in his words and his ways. Today, we have many different religions because men press their commandments into the word of God – the words of Jesus. We have no more law and prophets since John because men are creating their own religions instead of following Jesus! Jesus said that there would be many false prophets. Put Jesus first in your life. Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life!
