Which Law Is "Done Away" in Christ
What "Law" must we establish under Grace?
By Bro. Jacob
Today’s Christians are quick to quote these verses:
For sin shall not have dominion over you: Ephesians 2:8
FOR BY GRACE ARE YE SAVED THROUGH FAITH; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God
BUT HOW MANY CHRISTIANS WILL QUOTE THIS VERSE?
2 Corinthians 6:1
We then, as workers together with him, beseech you also THAT YE RECEIVE NOT THE GRACE OF GOD IN VAIN.
He answered and said unto them, Well hath Esaias prophesied of you hypocrites, as it is written, This people honoureth me with their lips, but their heart is far from me.HOWBEIT IN VAIN DO THEY WORSHIP ME, TEACHING FOR DOCTRINES THE COMMANDMENTS OF MEN. For laying aside the commandment of God, ye hold the tradition of men, as the washing of pots and cups: and many other such like things ye do.
NOW LETS LOOK AT NEW TESTAMENT PROOF OF WHAT LAW WAS DONE AWAY WITH
FOR THE LAW HAVING A SHADOW OF GOOD THINGS TO COME, and not the very image of the things, can never with those sacrifices which they offered year by year continually make the comers thereunto perfect. FOR THEN WOULD THEY NOT HAVE CEASED TO BE OFFERED? because that the worshippers once purged should have had no more conscience of sins.3 But in those sacrifices there is a remembrance again made of sins every year.4 For it is not possible that the blood of bulls and of goats should take away sins.Wherefore when he cometh into the world, he saith, Sacrifice and offering thou wouldest not, but a body hast thou prepared me: IN BURNT OFFERINGS AND SACRIFICES FOR SIN THOU HAST HAD NO PLEASURE. Then said I, Lo, I come (in the volume of the book it is written of me,) to do thy will, O God. ABOVE WHEN HE SAID, SACRIFICE AND OFFERING AND BURNT OFFERINGS AND OFFERING FOR SIN THOU WOULDEST NOT, NEITHER HADST PLEASURE THEREIN; WHICH ARE OFFERED BY THE LAW;
9 Then said he, Lo, I come to do thy will, O God. HE TAKETH AWAY THE FIRST, THAT HE MAY ESTABLISH THE SECOND.10 By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.11 And every priest standeth daily ministering and offering oftentimes the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins:12 But this man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God; From henceforth expecting till his enemies be made his footstool. For by one offering he hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified.Whereof the Holy Ghost also is a witness to us: for after that he had said before,
This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith the Lord,
I WILL PUT MY LAWS INTO THEIR HEARTS, AND IN THEIR MINDS WILL I WRITE THEM;
AND THEIR SINS AND INIQUITIES WILL I REMEMBER NO MORE.
Now where remission of these is, THERE IS NO MORE OFFERING FOR SIN.
NOW LET’S LOOK AT THE NEW TESTAMENT DEFINITION OF SIN
Whosoever committeth sin TRANSGRESSETH ALSO THE LAW: FOR SIN IS THE TRANSGRESSION OF THE LAW.1 JOHN 3:4
NOW LET’S COMPARE THE LAW THAT'S DONE AWAY WITH AGAINST THE LAW THAT REMAINS.
WHEREFORE THEN SERVETH THE LAW? IT WAS ADDED BECAUSE OF TRANSGRESSIONS, till the seed should come to whom the promise was made; and it was ordained by angels in the hand of a mediator.20 Now a mediator is not a mediator of one, but God is one.21 Is the law then against the promises of God? God forbid: for if there had been a law given which could have given life, verily righteousness should have been by the law. 22 But the scripture hath concluded all under sin, that the promise by faith of Jesus Christ might be given to them that believe.23 But before faith came, WE WERE KEPT UNDER THE LAW, shut up unto the faith which should afterwards be revealed.24 WHEREFORE THE LAW WAS OUR SCHOOLMASTER TO BRING US UNTO CHRIST, that we might be justified by faith.
25 But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster.
26 For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.
Comment: Warning there are a lot of different denominations out there with their own Jesus about 9,000 is a good ball park figure and you need the right one or you could find yourself in this crowd
Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; BUT HE THAT DOETH THE WILL OF MY FATHER WHICH IS IN HEAVEN [comment: remember what Paul said “receive not the grace of God in vain 2 Cor 6:1”] .MANY WILL SAY TO ME IN THAT DAY, Lord, Lord, have we not PROPHESIED IN THY NAME? and in thy name HAVE CAST OUT DEVILS? and in thy name DONE MANY WONDERFUL WORKS?23 And then will I profess unto them, I NEVER KNEW YOU: DEPART FROM ME, YE THAT WORK INIQUITY.- Matthews 7:21-23
YET MANY ARE RECEIVING THE GRACE OF GOD IN VAIN because they believe not his words.
Now God sent is his only begotten Son Jesus the same is called the WORD OF GOD (John 1:1-4,14 ) and he that believes not in the word is condemned already
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that WHOSOEVER BELIEVETH IN HIM should not perish, but have everlasting life.17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that THE WORLD THROUGH HIM MIGHT BE SAVED.18 He that BELIEVETH ON HIM IS NOT CONDEMNED: BUT HE THAT BELIEVETH NOT IS CONDEMNED ALREADY, because he hath not BELIEVED IN THE NAME OF THE ONLY BEGOTTEN SON OF GOD.
Now if you think that Jesus is the only name of the Son of God, here’s a news flash for you! Jesus has another name and that name is called the WORD OF GOD! Here’s the proof.
And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.12 His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself.13 And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: AND HIS NAME IS CALLED THE WORD OF GOD.
Now because many ignore this fact and separate his name’s “Jesus” and the “WORD of GOD”)
FOR WHOSOEVER SHALL CALL UPON THE NAME OF THE LORD SHALL BE SAVED.14 HOW THEN SHALL THEY CALL ON HIM in whom they have not believed? and HOW SHALL THEY BELIEVE IN HIM of whom they have not heard? and HOW SHALL THEY HEAR WITHOUT A PREACHER?15 And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!16 But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Esaias saith, Lord, WHO HATH BELIEVED OUR REPORT?17 So then faith cometh by hearing, AND HEARING BY THE WORD OF GOD.
Now let’s look at what Jesus did that brought the Grace of God under the new covenant Isaiah 53:1-12
WHO HATH BELIEVED OUR REPORT? and to whom is the arm of the LORD revealed?2 For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, THERE IS NO BEAUTY THAT WE SHOULD DESIRE HIM.3 He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not.4 SURELY HE HATH BORNE OUR GRIEFS, AND CARRIED OUR SORROWS: YET WE DID ESTEEM HIM STRICKEN, SMITTEN OF GOD, AND AFFLICTED.5 BUT HE WAS WOUNDED FOR OUR TRANSGRESSIONS, HE WAS BRUISED FOR OUR INIQUITIES: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.6 All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; AND THE LORD HATH LAID ON HIM THE INIQUITY OF US ALL.7 He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: HE IS BROUGHT AS A LAMB TO THE SLAUGHTER, AND AS A SHEEP BEFORE HER SHEARERS IS DUMB, so he openeth not his mouth.8 He was taken from prison and from judgment: and who shall declare his generation? FOR HE WAS CUT OFF OUT OF THE LAND OF THE LIVING: FOR THE TRANSGRESSION OF MY PEOPLE WAS HE STRICKEN.9 And he made his grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death; because he had done no violence, neither was any deceit in his mouth.10 Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise him; he hath put him to grief: WHEN THOU SHALT MAKE HIS SOUL AN OFFERING FOR SIN, he shall see his seed, he shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of the LORD shall prosper in his hand.11 He shall see of the travail of his soul, and shall be satisfied: BY HIS KNOWLEDGE SHALL MY RIGHTEOUS SERVANT JUSTIFY MANY; FOR HE SHALL BEAR THEIR INIQUITIES.12 Therefore will I divide him a portion with the great, and he shall divide the spoil with the strong; because he hath poured out his soul unto death: and he was numbered with the transgressors; AND HE BARE THE SIN OF MANY, AND MADE INTERCESSION FOR THE TRANSGRESSORS.
• Now when it comes to discussing Grace most Christians feel that they have a stronghold on this topic and promote not keeping the Law is the main theme of the New Testament and it doesn’t require Christians to keep any Law since Christ died for our sins and thus we are under grace. In addition today’s Christian think that Christ came to destroy the Prophets starting with Moses and by memory most will take you to the following passages to make grace a Lawless doctrine:
-I DO NOT FRUSTRATE THE GRACE OF GOD: for if righteousness come BY THE LAW, THEN CHRIST IS DEAD IN VAIN.
-Christ is become of no effect unto you, WHOSOEVER OF YOU ARE JUSTIFIED BY THE LAW; ye are fallen from grace.
-I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into THE GRACE OF CHRIST UNTO ANOTHER GOSPEL:
For the law was given by Moses, BUT GRACE AND TRUTH CAME BY JESUS CHRIST.
• Now if the above passages meant what the so called Christian would have you to believe in relation to the Law of God, let’s see what God would have his children believe concerning good doctrine, true understanding and instructions about the Law:
Hear, ye children, the instruction of a father, and attend to know understanding.
FOR I GIVE YOU GOOD DOCTRINE, FORSAKE YE NOT MY LAW. Proverbs 4:1-2
• Now to forsake the Law because you believe in the death of Jesus would mean that the New Testament is a bad doctrine but notice what Jesus says about the Law
And, behold, a certain lawyer stood up, and tempted him, saying, Master, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?26 He said unto him, What is written in the law? how readest thou?27 And he answering said, THOU SHALT LOVE THE LORD THY GOD WITH ALL THY HEART, AND WITH ALL THY SOUL, AND WITH ALL THY STRENGTH, AND WITH ALL THY MIND; AND THY NEIGHBOUR AS THYSELF.28 And he said unto him, Thou hast answered right: THIS DO, AND THOU SHALT LIVE.
• Now here’s the Apostle Paul to whom today’s accepted Christianity claim preached the Law is void by Faith yet he taught this:
Do we then make void the law through faith? GOD FORBID: YEA, WE ESTABLISH THE LAW.
• With that being read forsaking the Law just because we’re under grace comes from the Satanic Christian ministers which have been preaching another Jesus since the days the Apostle Paul.
2 Corinthians 11:4
FOR IF HE THAT COMETH PREACHETH ANOTHER JESUS, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive ANOTHER SPIRIT, which ye have not received, or ANOTHER GOSPEL, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him-
• Every Sunday Christian is taught to forsake the Law because of Grace, their minds are taught to be against the Law and to denounce it by calling those that teach keeping the law legalistic and Graceless believers, not realizing that they are Lawless praising the wicked:
THEY THAT FORSAKE THE LAW PRAISE THE WICKED: but such as keep the law contend with them.
• We see indeed that forsaking the Law just because we are under grace is just a perversion of the Gospel from Satan’s ministers twisting the writings of the Apostle Paul to deceive the people in the name of Jesus. The Apostle Peter warned us about such twisting, because only from writings of the Apostle Paul is the Law no more and practice of Lawless Grace for the purpose of serving the Sin and wickedness that’s in our sinful flesh, a doctrine secretly Preached by Satanic Christian ministers. But we as Bible Christians believe in the practice and promotion of the Lawful Grace of God to serve righteousness which is truly one of the greatest messages of the New Testament:
Thy righteousness is an everlasting righteousness, AND THY LAW IS THE TRUTH.
Now it should be evident that every so-called christian that believes that the Law is done away with in the name of Jesus HAS NO UNDERSTANDING OF WHAT THE TRUTH IS., therefore concerning the it is written
AND TO THE ANGEL OF THE CHURCH in Pergamos write; These things saith he which hath the sharp sword with two edges;13 I know thy works, and where thou dwellest, EVEN WHERE SATAN'S SEAT IS: and THOU HOLDEST FAST MY NAME, and HAST NOT DENIED MY FAITH, even in those days wherein Antipas was my faithful martyr, who was slain among you, where Satan dwelleth.14 But I have a few things against thee, because thou hast there them that hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balac TO CAST A STUMBLINGBLOCK before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed unto idols, and to commit fornication.
Now first let’s look at how this stumbling against God occurred under the old covenant and then we’ll see how counterfeit Christian ministers are doing it today.
14 And Moses was wroth with the officers of the host, with the captains over thousands, and captains over hundreds, which came from the battle.15 And Moses said unto them, Have ye saved all the women alive? BEHOLD, THESE CAUSED THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL, THROUGH THE COUNSEL OF BALAAM, TO COMMIT TRESPASS AGAINST THE LORD IN THE MATTER OF PEOR, and there was a plague among the congregation of the LORD.
THE APOSTLE PETERS WARNING ABOUT THE TWISTING OF PAUL WRITINGS BY THE WICKED UNDER THE NEW COVENANT
And account that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation; even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given unto him hath written unto you;16 As also in ALL HIS EPISTLES, SPEAKING IN THEM OF THESE THINGS; in which are some things hard to be understood, WHICH THEY THAT ARE UNLEARNED AND UNSTABLE WREST, AS THEY DO ALSO THE OTHER SCRIPTURES, UNTO THEIR OWN DESTRUCTION.17 Ye therefore, beloved, seeing ye know these things before, BEWARE LEST YE ALSO, BEING LED AWAY WITH THE ERROR OF THE WICKED, FALL FROM YOUR OWN STEDFASTNESS.
2 Peter 3:15-17
Even the Apostle Paul knew that this would be the case concerning the Law
2 Timothy 1:7-10
DESIRING TO BE TEACHERS OF THE LAW; understanding neither what they say, nor whereof they affirm.
BUT WE KNOW THAT THE LAW IS GOOD, if a man use it lawfully;
Knowing this, that the law is not made for a righteous man, BUT FOR THE LAWLESS and disobedient, for the ungodly and for sinners, for unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers,10 For whoremongers, for them that defile themselves with mankind, for menstealers, for liars, for perjured persons, AND IF THERE BE ANY OTHER THING THAT IS CONTRARY TO SOUND DOCTRINE;11 According to the glorious gospel of the blessed God, which was committed to my trust
BECAUSE ATTENDING SUNDAY WORSHIP IS AN OPEN ACT OF FORSAKING THE LAW, and the KEEPING OF THE SABBATH DAY (SATURDAY) IS AN OPEN ACT OF ESTABLISHING THE LAW. Many go deceived in crowds every Sunday worshiping Satan in name of Jesus, twisting Bible verses and grace to work their iniquity for it is written-Matthews 7:21-23
• How is this possible you may ask, because there are many in this crowd, HERE’S HOW!
Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you THAT YE SHOULD EARNESTLY CONTEND FOR THE FAITH which was once delivered unto the saints.FOR THERE ARE CERTAIN MEN CREPT IN UNAWARES, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, TURNING THE GRACE OF OUR GOD INTO LASCIVIOUSNESS, AND DENYING THE ONLY LORD GOD, AND OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST.
Notice, these are the Counterfeit Christian ministers using Christianity to SATANIZE GRACE TO SERVE SIN, even teaching that Jesus came to destroy the Law and the Prophets and wanting you to think so too! They’ll never want you to read and understand what Jesus said here thus denying him every Sunday worship attendance to worship another Jesus: MATTHEWS 5;17-19
THINK NOT THAT I AM COME TO DESTROY THE LAW, OR THE PROPHETS:[ comment: But Today’s Christianity thinks he did] I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.18 For verily I say unto you, TILL HEAVEN AND EARTH PASS, ONE JOT OR ONE TITTLE SHALL IN NO WISE PASS FROM THE LAW, TILL ALL BE FULFILLED.[ comment: we still have heaven and earth which means the Law and the Prophets are still good]19 Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, AND SHALL TEACH MEN SO, HE SHALL BE CALLED THE LEAST IN THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.
Now let’s start by identifying the Counterfeit Christians spoken of in the Holy Bible because
THEY’LL HAVE YOU TO THINK AGAINST JESUS AND TO NOT TEACH THE LAW, OR COMMANDMENTS OR THE PROPHETS BECAUSE THEY HAVE ANOTHER JESUS: 2 Corinthian 11:13-15
For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, TRANSFORMING THEMSELVES INTO THE APOSTLES OF CHRIST.14 And no marvel; for SATAN HIMSELF IS TRANSFORMED into an angel of light.15 Therefore it is no great thing if HIS MINISTERS ALSO BE TRANSFORMED AS THE MINISTERS OF RIGHTEOUSNESS; whose end shall be according to their works.
NOW LET’S LOOK AT THE TEACHINGS OF THE NEW TESTAMENT TO SEE THAT IT ESTABLISHES THAT WE MUST BY FAITH ESTABLISH THE LAW, rebuking the Counterfeit Christian ministers doctrine that twist grace
into forsaking of the Law so that we can praise the wicked.
LET’S START WITH THE TEACHINGS OF THE APOSTLE PAULTO THE RULERS OF HIS TIME,THE ROMANS CONCERNING THE LAW THE SAME PEOPLE THAT ALSO KILLED HIM IN 68 AD. Paul taught good doctrine, that we are not to forsake the Law according to proverbs 4:1-2. PAUL ALSO TAUGHT ABOUT THE ADDED LAW, THE LAW OF ANIMAL SACRIFICES which pointed to the ULTIMATE AND FINAL SACRIFICE OF JESUS for sin.[ lesson: The Sacrificial Law, The Added Law]
BUT THE APOSTLE PAUL TAUGHT WE ESTABLISH THE LAW -Roman 3:30-31
Seeing it is one God, which shall justify the circumcision by faith, and uncircumcision through faith.DO WE THEN MAKE VOID THE LAW THROUGH FAITH? GOD FORBID: YEA, WE ESTABLISH THE LAW.
BUT COUNTERFEIT CHRISTIAN MINISTERS IGNORE THIS! Thus what we have today is Counterfeit Christianity full of confusion and false holiness and lying doctrines from Satan’s ministers hiding behind Jesus name to justify serving sin.
WHEREFORE THE LAW IS HOLY, and the commandment holy, and JUST, AND GOOD. Romans 7:12
WOW ! THE LAW IS HOLY ACOCORDING TO THE NEW TESTAMENT, BUT THE COUNTERFEIT CHRISTIANS THINKS IT NOT! THAT WHY THE JESUS OF THE HOLY BIBLE DOESN’T KNOWS THEM. Romans 2:13
(For not the hearers of the law are just before God, but THE DOERS OF THE LAW SHALL BE JUSTIFIED.
OH! THERE IS A LAW TO PERFORM, THAT WASN’T NAILED TO THE CROSS and if you are a doer of it, it will justify you before God. (The sacrifice of animals justified no man ,only the blood of Jesus and not of the blood of animals.
That’s the carnal Law with it’s ordinances that was nailed to the cross)
FOR I DELIGHT IN THE LAW OF GOD after the inward man: Romans 7:20
OH! the Apostle Paul DELIGHTS IN THE LAW OF GOD! But the Counterfeit Christian ministers hate it. They twist and teach you that grace is to sin but the wages of sin is death!
But I see another LAW IN MY MEMBERS, warring against THE LAW OF MY MIND, and bringing me into captivity to THE LAW OF SIN WHICH IS IN MY MEMBERS. O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death? I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. SO THEN WITH THE MIND I MYSELF SERVE THE LAW OF GOD; but with the flesh the law of sin.-Romans7:23-25
Now why would PAUL SERVE A LAW that is DONE AWAY WITH, IF IT IS OF NO PROFIT
and makes CHRIST DEATH IN VAIN AND HAS NO RIGHTEOUSENESS.
Hmmm I guess the Apostle Paul is a legalist too according to the speeches of the Counterfeit Christian ministers, that why they constantly lie about his writings, twisting them to SERVE SIN.
FOR TO BE CARNALLY MINDED IS DEATH; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.7 Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: FOR IT IS NOT SUBJECT TO THE LAW OF GOD, NEITHER INDEED CAN BE.-ROMANS 8
OH! SO THE SUNDAY CHRISTIAN IS NOT SPIRITUALLY MINDED! THEY PROMOTE AND EXHORT THAT YOU CAN’T KEEP THE LAW NOR ARE SUBJECT TO THE LAW and TEACH YOU A GRACE TO SERVE SIN
BUT THE WAGES THEREOF IS SEPARATION FROM JESUS AND DEATH!
FOR WE KNOW THAT THE LAW IS SPIRITUAL: but I am carnal, sold under sin. Romans 7:14
WOW! You mean to tell me that Paul taught that we as true believers know the Law is Spiritual. So being a SUNDAY CHRISTIAN YOU ARE NOT SPIRITUAL, YOU WAR AGAINST THE KEEPING OF THE LAW and therefore THEY STAY SOLD UNDER SIN!
What shall we say then? Is the law sin? God forbid. NAY, I HAD NOT KNOWN SIN, BUT BY THE LAW: FOR I HAD NOT KNOWN LUST, EXCEPT THE LAW HAD SAID, THOU SHALT NOT COVET -Romans 7:7.
WOW! You mean to tell me that Paul taught WE HAVE NO KNOWLEDGE OF SIN WITHOUT THE LAW and BY THE 10 COMMANDMENTS IS HOW WE JUDGE WHAT IS SIN. Which means the Counterfeit Christian is has no true knowledge of sin because the Jesus they preach nailed ALL THE LAWS TO THE CROSS. THEREFOR THEY ARE WITHOUT THE LAW OF GOD which gives us the knowledge of Sin.
This verse is a major key to understanding what is sin and here’s a further break down by Apostles James
IF YE FULFIL THE ROYAL LAW ACCORDING TO THE SCRIPTURE, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself, ye do well: But if ye have respect to persons, ye commit sin, and ARE CONVINCED OF THE LAW AS TRANSGRESSORS. For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all. FOR HE THAT SAID, DO NOT COMMIT ADULTERY, SAID ALSO, DO NOT KILL. Now if thou commit no adultery, yet if thou kill, THOU ART BECOME A TRANSGRESSOR OF THE LAW. James 2:8-9
Now let's pay close attention to how the Apostle Paul establishes our conduct under Grace.Rom 6:1-23
WHAT SHALL WE SAY THEN? SHALL WE CONTINUE IN SIN, THAT GRACE MAY ABOUND? GOD FORBID. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein? Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death? Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life. For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection: KNOWING THIS, THAT OUR OLD MAN IS CRUCIFIED WITH HIM, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that HENCEFORTH WE SHOULD NOT SERVE SIN. For he that is dead is freed from sin. Now if we be dead with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with him: Knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more; death hath no more dominion over him. For in that he died, he died unto sin once: but in that he liveth, he liveth unto God. LIKEWISE RECKON YE ALSO YOURSELVES TO BE DEAD INDEED UNTO SIN, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord. Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey it in the lusts thereof. NEITHER YIELD YE YOUR MEMBERS AS INSTRUMENTS OF UNRIGHTEOUSNESS UNTO SIN: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God. For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace. What then? SHALL WE SIN, BECAUSE WE ARE NOT UNDER THE LAW, BUT UNDER GRACE? GOD FORBID. Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness? But God be thanked, that YE WERE THE SERVANTS OF SIN, but ye have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you. Being then made free from sin, ye BECAME THE SERVANTS OF RIGHTEOUSNESS. I speak after the manner of men because of the infirmity of your flesh: for as ye have yielded your members servants to uncleanness and to iniquity unto iniquity; EVEN SO NOW YIELD YOUR MEMBERS SERVANTS TO RIGHTEOUSNESS UNTO HOLINESS. For when ye were the servants of sin, ye were free from righteousness. What fruit had ye then in those things whereof ye are now ashamed? for the end of those things is death. But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life. FOR THE WAGES OF SIN [SERVING SIN] IS DEATH; BUT THE GIFT OF GOD IS ETERNAL LIFE THROUGH JESUS CHRIST OUR LORD.
Now if you being taught that you don’t have to keep the Law because your under grace, that is a carnal mind teaching you to serve sin, BUT THE SPIRITUAL MINDED THAT HAS RECEIVED THE GIFT OF GOD, IT WILL TEACH YOU TO KEEP THE LAW UNDER GRACE! Here’s our NEW TESTAMENT PROOF.
FOR TO BE CARNALLY MINDED IS DEATH; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. BECAUSE THE CARNAL MIND IS ENMITY AGAINST GOD: FOR IT IS NOT SUBJECT TO THE LAW OF GOD, NEITHER INDEED CAN BE.
THEREFORE IF WE ARE TRULY SPIRITUALLY MINDED
WE MUST KEEP THE LAW, TO KEEP THE GRACE THAT SAVED US
OR YOU’LL FIND YOURSELF IN THAT CROWD OF COUNTERFEIT CHRISTIANS THAT JESUS NEVER KNEW. THE WORKERS OF INIQUITY!
THE CHOICE IS YOURS
