A major difference between Baal worship in the church today and true worship in the church today is that Baal worship holds fast to the belief that it is your faith plus your good works that saves you, while the gospel teaches that it is the faith of Jesus that does the good works - even the obeying of the 10 Commandments. Faith must ALWAYS precede works since it is faith itself that produces the works.
[The relationship between faith and works is often misunderstood, especially if one finds they are still approaching the Gospel with an Armianian mind set. Ellet J. Waggoner expalins this relationship clearly and brings hope to the one that has become discouraged in all their attempts to make themselves right with God. D. Peters]
"The great characteristic of faith is, that it works. We do not mean that works are attached to it, but works come from it."
Just as it was natural for us to ‘try’ to show good works through our own effort, which always ended up with depression and discouragement as a necessary consequence to our predictable failure, so with the new creation it is natural to do the good works of Him who now dwells in us.
The year following the 1888 General Conference, E. J. Waggoner wrote, “The great characteristic of faith is that it works. We do not mean that works are attached to it, but works come from it. “As the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.” James 2:26. Faith ‘works by love,’ says Paul. There may be that which is called faith, but if no works proceed from it, it is not faith."
Since the Sabbath is the sign of a perfect creation completed, and by the cross of Christ a new creation is accomplished, the Sabbath must be the sign of the cross. Try it and see if it is not.
