The Law of God – Fulfilled or destroyed ?

Bible_101     The question which is now being asked by many of God’s children is . . . . If Christ came to “fulfill” the law, then what part did He destroy ?

     This is a vital Truth for each of God’s children to know. The LORD did not come to change His Law (instructions in righteousness) . . . “For He shall magnify the Law and make it honourable” (Isaiah 42:21) . . . . but rather He has given us the promise that He will change our carnal hearts of stone !

Verily, verily, I say unto you . . . Ye must be begotten again !”
John 3:1-7, James 1:18 & I Peter 1:22-25

Sin and the Curse of the Law ?

Salvation_400     “Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse (accursed – without hope of pardon or redemption) for us . . . . For it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree . . . !”

What was Abolished in Christ ?

nailed to the cross 4     “And took it out of the way, nailing it to His cross . . . !”
Colossians 2:14

“The words ‘abolish,’ ‘take away,’ ‘destroy,’ and ‘change’ have been so persistently connected with the law by some public teachers that there exists in the minds of many people the honest conviction that all which is expressed by these words was done to the law by Christ.

It is true that He came to “abolish” something, and to “take away” something, and to “destroy” something, and to “change” something; but it is important that we-should know just what it was that He abolished, and what it was that He took away, and what it was that He destroyed, and what it was that He intended to change by His work in behalf of man. This we can easily learn from the Scriptures. Continue reading

New Light Yet to Shine ?

 

10 commandments & Jesus     “Here is to be found the secret of the lack of the Spirit and power of God in the revivals of our time !”

“If we would have the Spirit and power of the third angel’s message, we must present the law and the gospel (Glad Tidings) together, for they go hand in hand . . . .

As a power from beneath is stirring up the children of disobedience to make void the law of God, and to trample upon the faith of Christ as our righteousness, a power from above is moving upon the hearts of those who are loyal, to exalt the law . . . . and to lift up Jesus as a complete Saviour !”                    – Gospel Workers 1892, p.103

Now unto Him that is able . . . to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence (that is verily before His throne) of His glory with exceeding joy . . . !”   Jude 1:24 and ref: Hebrews 4:114-16 & Zephaniah3:14-17

The Two Covenants ?

What are the two covenants ?

These are the two Covenants.” Galatians 4:24. The two women, Hagar and Sarah; for we read that Hagar is Mount Sinai, “which gendereth (produces) to bondage.”

Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us to Christ, so that we might be justified (declared innocent, holy and righteous) by faith !”     Galatians 3:24 Continue reading
