Traditions of God vs Traditions of Men
God set His holy convocations, feasts to Abraham and his descendants. They include; Sabbath, feast of unleavened bread, First fruits, Passover, Pentecost (feast of weeks), feast of trumpet, Day of atonement and feast of tabernacles. Not only are they feasts but prophecies. See prophecy in Jewish feasts.
Men (world) have their own feasts and they are many with new feasts mushrooming each day. They include Christmas, New Year, Birthdays, independence days, April Fool’s Day, Earth Day, Father’s Day, Halloween, Mother’s Day, International Women’s Day, International Workers Day, Saint Valentine’s Day, Saint Patrick’s Day, World Water Day, world environment day, baby showers, etc
In God polygamy, marrying of more than one wife or husband is forbidden (Gen 2, 1 Cor 7:2). All men traditions allow and practice polygamy.
In God sexual immorality in every form is forbidden (Lev 18). All men traditions allow and practice sexual immorality in one way or another.
In God a man leaves his father and mother and be joined to his wife (Gen 2:24, Mt 19:5). In all men traditions, people do not leave their father and mother but build a house and live next to their parents/relatives.
In God people do not pay dowry for Jesus paid the price but gifts, if one wills (not a must) can be given to the bride like in the case of Isaac and Rebekah (Gen 24). In men traditions, a human being is bought in the name of dowry because their price is not paid.
Men traditions allow taking of alcohol or incantations as alcohol is poured down to the ground, to ancestors (demons). In God alcohol is forbidden – it is only for those perishing; going to hell (Prov 31:6). I taught you how Satan taught Cain generation how to make alcohol and other abominations to destroy humanity. See do not paint the temple of God
All men traditions up to today need blood sacrifice, blood of animals to even human beings. In God, Jesus hanged on the cross and shed His blood once and for all therefore blood sacrifice of bulls and animals is not required (Hebrews)
In God, the dressing of His people is different from dressing of people of the world – we do not dress like harlots (Prov 7) or in foreign gods. See ornaments are foreign gods
Every tradition of men includes marking, painting or tattooing of the body. It is against God to mark, paint or tattoo the body, the temple of the Holy Spirit. See tattoos are against god and tattoos in hell.
Every men traditions includes the worship and sacrifice to gods ‘idols’ demons. God commands no worship of gods and idols (Ex 20, 34).
These are some of God traditions vs men traditions to show you how God traditions are totally different from men’s. The entire Bible reveals the traditions, ordinances, statutes of God – study it keenly looking at how every tradition is different from men’s including your own traditions be it African, Asian, Americans, Indians, etc.
and Cor 7:2 is a chapter that also says: 6 But I speak this by permission, and not of commandment. – this is paul’s word he was allowed to speak.. not the word of God.. not what God commands.. but what paul suggests .. as a person that can only see in part (1 Corinthians 13:12) and being that marriage to the bridegroom is the the final stage of the process, paul doesn’t see that marriage part clearly.. But Jesus warns you about trusting those that come in his name who lead many astray so you have to watch out for the apostles and check up on them against Jesus actual teaching.
“In God polygamy, marrying of more than one wife or husband is forbidden (Gen 2, 1 Cor 7:2).”
You not ready to preach and teach.. you need to learn.. Jesus marries the whole church. All of Israel is God’s wife.. the only characters that are perfect and sinless have big marriages of many people.
The word of God
Amen thank you Jesus
