More evidence about Heresy.

As you read before, anything that is not taught according to the teachings of the Bible is Heresy. We must watch out that we are not being taught by false prophets who make up stories distorting the Bible to their own destruction. We previously saw that not keeping the Sabbath day, which is on Saturday not on Sunday, is Heresy. We also need to know that not keeping the Passover is also Heresy. We can see alot of verses in the Bible both old and new testaments that testify to the ordinance of the Passover.  Through the Passover, we receive eternal life and salvation, so that we will be able to escape disasters and eternal destruction. Jesus set the example of keeping the Passover for us to realize the importance of the Passover and keep it.

Matt 26:18-19-He replied, “Go into the city to a certain man and tell him, ‘The Teacher says: My appointed time is near. I am going to celebrate the Passover with my disciples at your house.’ ” 19So the disciples did as Jesus had directed them and prepared the Passover.

The disciples who obeyed Jesus’ direction kept the Passover holy even after his ascension (1 Cor. 11:23)(1 cor 5:7)

However, nowadays many churches turn against God by denying the Passover saying “the Passover was abolished and it doesn’t need to be kept.” Such churches are heretics disobeying God’s command. In this command, “Keep the Passover,” we can find the sacred love of Jesus to give us eternal life through the Passover.

Matt 26:26-

26While they were eating, Jesus took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to his disciples, saying, “Take and eat; this is my body.”

 27Then he took the cup, gave thanks and offered it to them, saying, “Drink from it, all of you. 28This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins

At the Feast of the Passover, Jesus promised to give us eternal life though his immortal flesh and blood, and proclaimed it as the new covenant. Thus, God mentioned the importance of the Passover through many verses, so tha twe may reach the full assurance of faith by keeping the Passover. The church that ignores the Passover ignored God’s command, and they will face the consequences on judgement day.

In the Passover is hidden God’s profound providence

- Through the Passover, our sins are forgiven (Matt. 26:28)

- Through the Passover, we receive eternal life and become one body with Christ ( John 6:54-57)

-Through the Passover, the devil and all other gods are judged (Ex. 12:12)

-Through the Passover, we are saved from all disasters (Ex. 12:13)

-Unless we keept the Passover, we are cut off from God’s people (Num. 9:13)

Thus, the Bible testifies that the Passover is a life-giving law. Nevertheless, if a church doesnt keep the Passover, it is heretic.

Nowadays, people make so many excuses to not keep it and they rather keep communion or Eucharist every Sunday. God never commanded Peter and John to go and make preparations to eat the Eucharist! this pagan celebration began to be kept after Ad. 325 through the Nicaea Council held by Roman Emperor Constantine. It is up to you if you want to follow the direction of Jesus Christ who told John and Peter to prepare for the Passover or if you want to follow the direction of Constantine to ordained that people should keep communion. 

In conclusion, whoever dare call the teachings of World Mission Society Church of God a Heresy should first check himself to see what teaching he/she is keeping. We keep the Passover because God commanded us! What do you keep???and who commanded you? If it is not the Passover, you might want to read 2 peter 2:1-3 again.
