Why So Many Denominations? (part 2)

(continued from "Why So Many Denominations?" Part 1)

The True Church Keeps All of Jesus' Commandments

But the key to finding the right denomination and church to support your walking with Jesus in all of His teachings, is to study all the teachings of His word and find that church that teaches all that He taught.  One of the most important of the teachings of Christ is obedience to the ten commandments.  Jesus said, "If you love me, keep my commandments."  John 14:15.  See also Matthew 5:17-19 and Matthew 7:20-24.   He consistently taught that we should obey the commandments.

The True Church Celebrates Jesus on His Holy Day

Jesus also taught us by His own example to remember to keep the fourth commandment, the Sabbath, holy.  Luke 4:16.  Which of the churches is teaching this?  Jesus said that He made the Sabbath for man, and that He is Lord of the Sabbath."  Mark 2:27-28.  There is not one Scripture to be found anywhere where Jesus changed or invalidated His divine command to keep the Sabbath (Saturday) holy.

The True Church Identified in Revelation

Jesus gives us a complete picture of His end-time church in the book of the end, Revelation.  Revelation 12:17 says:  "And the dragon was enraged with the woman, and he went to make war with the rest of her offspring, who keep the commandments of God and have the testimony of Jesus Christ."  Again, the end-time church of Jesus keeps His commandments and has the testimony of Jesus Christ.  And what is the testimony of Jesus Christ?  The angel in Revelation 19:10 tells John that the "testimony of Jesus is the Spirit of prophecy."  The spirit of prophecy is the gift of prophecy which is given, along with all the gifts of the Spirit, to guide the last-days church in the climactic hours of earth's history.  We will take up the study of this prophetic gift in a future posting.
