Repentance, obedience, trust and love not only brings us closer to the Creator but puts us under his everlasting and eternal protection.
The Adversary Satan shivers when he sees us walking in the presence of God and obeying God’s instructions. Because when we love God, there is no question what we must do as the book of John 14:15 If ye love me, keep my commandments.
God did not create the ten commandments to be a burden unto us but instead, as the Bible told us in1 John 5:3 For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.
Let us remember that the Devil is moving among us. He is using false prophets and the Churches to blind us to the truth and substituting the teaching of the Bible and God word with false doctrine, political correctness so that he can trap us into his lies.
We obey the Creator because we are his children and he is our Father, therefore as the book of 1 Peter 1:14 As obedient children, not fashioning yourselves according to the former lusts in your ignorance.
Peter sums it up here beautiful in the scripture Acts 5:29 Then Peter and the other apostles answered and said, We ought to obey God rather than men.
