And am sorry that you should SAWDER me!!
Dan, Jaime was not sending you a compliment, but an exhortation.
And we see from Acts 10:28 that it was UNLAWFUL it is for a Jewish man to join himself or to become NEAR a Foreigner, and it shows that Peter was a LAW KEEPER.
Then we see Peter denied Jesus three times, in Luke 22:61.
Then in Luke 22:31, Satan is trying to have Peter and to sift him.
In verse, I have prayed for thee, by thy FAITH Fail not and remember that Jew WALKED BY SIGHT.
And when thou ART CONVERTED, strengthen thy brethren,
And have said many times, that Peter was a LAW KEEPER as Gal 2:14 is the PROOF.
Dan, you are confused on many NT doctrines, and please, no pun intended, but the truth is truth. Even your posts are poorly written and many times it's hard to know exactly what your intentions are that you desire for us to consider. Maybe because you are not from our nation and that's understandable, I take the time to correct all of them which I desire to speak to you to make them pretty to read.
Peter, like all of us, delighted in the law of God, yet we as NT Christian know how to lawfully
use the law, because the law is good, holy, and spiritual.
1st Timonthy 1:8~"But we know that the law is good, if a man use it lawfully;"
Peter was converted and saw clearly the proper use of God's holy law. All of the apostles spoke with one tongue, it is folks like you that confuse the minds of the righteous. Maybe not intentional, nevertheless, you do by your own lack of knowledge of the truth.
"No one was saved under the Law. Their sins were temporarily atoned for, but that had to be taken care of each year. "
Brother, you need to reconsider your words/understanding on this subject. Every child of God since righteous Abel was born again (saved from their sins and the condemnation of God's holy law) the same manner as all of us are today. By grace through the obedience of Jesus Christ. The main difference between us to them is the system under which they lived~they look forward to the coming of the Saviour of the world, we look back and declared it was FINISHED when Jesus died and was resurrected. BOTH OT and NT saints knew Christ was a Lamb slain since the foundation of the world!
Revelation 13:8~"And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world."
They had their system of animal sacrifices, etc., etc., that reminded them of their sins every year, because of the continuous offerings that were required under the OT. Nevertheless, those who knew the truth, could and did rejoice in the blessedness of the man to whom God did not input sin because of his free grace based upon the redemption that was in Jesus Christ...coming, or past. Read Psalms 32 and compare Romans 4:1-4. David taught Israel (the very elect among them) to sing of God's faithfulness in providing and securing the forgiveness of their sins through Jesus Christ~Read Psalm 89.
I don’t think we are told how Peter was saved.
We do not need to be told about each and every child of God, WE KNOW~we are children of God's promises, and in the very same manner in which Isaca was born naturally, are we born spiritually. Read Galatians 4:21-31
. God's oath and promises of grace were brought about by his Almighty power and faithfulness. (Again, read Psalm 89
Wouldn‘t you think Jesus himself could save him - forgive his sins and bestow the Holy Spirit on him
I do not think.... we all should know clearly the answer.
Matthew 16:13-17~"When Jesus came into the coasts of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, saying, Whom do men say that I the Son of man am? And they said, Some say that thou art John the Baptist: some, Elias; and others, Jeremias, or one of the prophets. He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am? And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God. And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven."
Jesus' words should be the final authority on this point. It is for me and my house.
