MESSAGE FOR THE DAY: 18th May 2022 | Andrew Wommack Devotional — Tradition Neutralizes

MARK 7:1-13

Deuteronomy 4:2 clearly states ‘Ye shall not add unto the word which I command you, neither shall ye diminish ought from it . . . .’ This same thought is repeated in the New Testament in Revelation 22:18-19 with very stiff penalties. Religious man is very swift to observe the part about not diminishing any of God’s commandments, but there seems to be an unwritten law that adding to them is okay. Every denomination has its own set of ‘do’s and don’ts’ which aren’t found in scripture, and like those of the hypocritical Pharisees, their unwritten laws usually have to do with outward appearance.

We need to remember that adding to God’s commandments is just as bad as taking away from them. We need to speak when the Bible speaks, and be silent when the Bible is silent.

The commandments of God and the traditions of men are not the same thing and must always be clearly distinguished. Any attempt to place them on the same level will always result in making the Word of God of none effect. You have to either ‘lay aside’ the commandment of God to keep the traditions of men or you have to ‘lay aside’ the traditions of men to keep the commandments of God (Ex. 20:3). Church liturgy is tradition, as well as many of the ‘do’s and don’ts’ taught by churches today. We can neutralize the positive power of God’s Word toward us, and nothing will do that quicker than elevating man’s traditions above God’s Word. God’s Word is still true (Rom. 3:3-4) and will not return to Him void (Isa. 55:11).

The Word will not profit anyone who doesn’t believe it, but God’s Word itself doesn’t lose any power. If some do not believe God’s Word, does that make God’s Word of no effect? The answer to this question is a resounding ‘no!’ God’s Word still has its power to save, and it will profit you when you mix it with faith.
