"Thank you Scribe to Elijah"

Thank you Scribe,
 
I appreciate you sending the correct link. This is interesting. I have seen and believe the Ron Wyatt videos showing his discovery of these caves under the crucifixion site and the location of the Ark and having the blood of our Lord on the mercy seat. Also he said the angels brought out the tablets of the Ten Commandments which he saw in the cave. He said that the angel said that these would again be in force during the tribulation and they would be publicly displayed and people would again be seeking to keep them.
 
I am confused though at the suggestion that to be right with God we must keep the Ten Commandments and rest on the seventh day because I believe according to Paul, that in Christ we are credited with Jesus' righteousness and have thereby fulfilled the whole law by faith in His finished work. And that any attempt by us to keep the law after faith in Jesus is wrong because then you are a debtor to all of the law. Was not this the reason that Paul withstood Peter to the face, because Peter withdrew himself from eating "unclean things" with the gentiles when the Jews arrived? Even the observing of certain days over other days is ok but not necessary as taught by Apostle Paul. He said let not the one judge the other for these practices or lack thereof... Now, I do believe that to fail to receive the grace of our Lord and get in on His offer by ignorantly seeking to establish our own righteousness is to fail of the grace of God and make shipwreck and falling from grace we are then held by God responsible for the whole of the law which would certainly include keeping the proper sabbath day as well as the ten commandments. But under grace and faith in Jesus I am held as righteous as Jesus because He was treated as though He had committed my failure and missed the mark. Therefore I have passed from judgment to life and am escaped the wrath to come. But I believe that because God is not willing that any should perish, He is willing to teach the ones who insist on attempting to approach Him by way of the Old Covenant, of the impossibility of coming to God that way, by the object lesson of letting them try one last time before finally seeing that they need to trust in Jesus and His substitute payment for them. If anyone comes preaching any other gospel than that of Apostle Paul, he is to be accursed, is he not? Have I then misunderstood Paul's gospel? Or is this teaching already here for those that will be left behind?
 
Galatians 3
 1.  O foolish Galatians, who hath bewitched you, that ye should not obey the truth, before whose eyes Jesus Christ hath been evidently set forth, crucified among you?
 2.  This only would I learn of you, Received ye the Spirit by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith?
 3.  Are ye so foolish? having begun in the Spirit, are ye now made perfect by the flesh?
 4.  Have ye suffered so many things in vain? if it be yet in vain.
 5.  He therefore that ministereth to you the Spirit, and worketh miracles among you, doeth he it by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith?
 6.  Even as Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness.
 7.  Know ye therefore that they which are of faith, the same are the children of Abraham.
 8.  And the scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the heathen through faith, preached before the gospel unto Abraham, saying, In thee shall all nations be blessed.
 9.  So then they which be of faith are blessed with faithful Abraham.
 10.  For as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse: for it is written, Cursed is every one that continueth not in all things which are written in the book of the law to do them.
 11.  But that no man is justified by the law in the sight of God, it is evident: for, The just shall live by faith.
 12.  And the law is not of faith: but, the man that doeth them shall live in them.
 13.  Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree:
 14.  That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.
 
Verse 12 says that the man that does the law will live only however much life he can get by keeping the law but the law brings only death by showing us our failure be be like God. Satan said knowledge of good and evil could make us like God but the truth is Satan lied. We died and only Jesus can give us life again as a free gift that we must receive by faith in Him who promised it.
 
So what are the seven Noahide Laws?
 
Sincerely,
