The Strange Fire Of The Legalists

Nadab and Abihu were the eldest sons of Aaron and along with their father were the first priests to serve in the Tabernacle. Their story is a terrifying warning to us about God's unbending requirements. In Leviticus 10 we learn that they brought a "strange fire" before the LORD - in other words, a fire not authorized by God. As a consequence they were immediately consumed and killed by fire.
In like manner, God has authorized only one acceptable sacrifice for us to bring before Him. God's Word tells us that no one is righteous in His sight (Psalm 53:3, Romans 3:10-12). All have gone astray and are covered in filth (Isaiah 64:6). No one can perfectly keep His laws (James 2:10, Galatians 5:3, 1 Corinthians 15:56, Romans 7:10). To remedy this situation God sent His perfect and only begotten Son to be the once-for-all-time propitiation for our sins (Hebrews 10:11-12, 1 Peter 2:24, Isaiah 53:5) that through faith in Him we can be clothed in His righteousness (Romans 3:21-22, 4:22-24, 2 Corinthians 5:21). Jesus Christ is the only acceptable sacrifice and everything else is "strange fire". Your works, religion, and Torah-keeping cannot save you - they're strange fire. Just as Jeff so incredibly described in his study of Genesis 3-4, Abel was accepted because He brought a blood sacrifice whereas Cain was rejected because he brought the fruit of his labors. Your works and righteousness are but filthy rags (Isaiah 64:6). I greatly fear for those self-proclaimed Christians who are now causing fear in the flock of God by suggesting salvation is Jesus + something else. Some of these "Christians" are even teaching about the Revelation 12 Sign. Woe to you.
If you are watching prophecy unfold or teaching on the subject of Bible prophecy then these two humble little videos will be two of the most important videos you ever watch:
VIDEO: PART 1
VIDEO: PART 2
You have either placed your faith in Christ and Christ alone or in something else. You either believe Jesus died for all of your sins or none of them. Wake up. Wake up. Wake up. There is simply no time left to get onboard the ark and Jesus is the ark. When you carry your works you can't fit through the door. The only way through the door is to humble yourself before the mighty presence of God and believe on the Lord Jesus Christ for salvation. Don't assume because you think you're ready that you're ready. Only trusting in Christ alone will get you in and I fear many of these works-righteousness teachers (even some who are supporting the Revelation 12 Sign) are not ready in the way they need to be in order to be raptured - they're not really even Believers. They don't believe in Christ, they believe in themselves.

There is nothing terrifying about God.
And who appointed you God’s messenger?

I think the reason you aren’t getting many responses is that you are doing “works”, i.e., posting to the Web, to warn people about doing “works” to achieve salvation.
Now, if you read what Jesus said, over and over again, one is saved by believing in Him, and following His Commandments. He specifically told us that the First Commandment was to love Elohim (God) and the second was to love our neighbors. He also told us that the Father would send the Holy Spirit as a Helper to help us. The last thing Jesus told us, while He was on Earth, was to go and preach the Gospel of the Kingdom, which encompasses all of this.
Please re-read Matthew 5-7. There is a whole lot of “works” described therein. Jesus ends his lesson with this:
MAT7:26 And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: MAT7:27 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.

So, it is clearly Believer then Do!

If you read the entire chapter of Leviticus 10, it is believed that Nadab and Abihu were drunk (at least tipsy) at the time they went in to perform their duties as High Priests. They offered up “unauthorized” fire which indicates that they, at the very least, were not taking their duties seriously. After Nadab and Abihu’s deaths, God issue the command to Aaron and his remaining sons not to have strong drink before going into the tent of the meeting “lest you die” (Lev 10:14). And Moses warned Aaron and his remaining sons to hold their tongues.
Nadab and Abihu’s failure is that they didn’t take their jobs seriously with reverence. They thought it was fun and games. And, if one wants a New Testament example, then simply look at Ananias and Sapphira in Acts 5. Poor behavior towards God are acts that may incur God’s wrath not only to those committing the act but those people who might feel sorry for the individual.
If there is a lesson we should come away with, it is that God is not to be trifled with. How many of us fail to treat God with respect?
