The Law of God

382

Published on

The Law of God is eternal. The law of God existed before the children of Israel came to Mount Sinai. Prior to that time, it was a spoken word that was taught from father to son. But, from the time of Moses it was a written word, so holy and pure that God did not allow Moses to write it. He wrote it himself on two tables of stone.

  11. 11. Scripturessupporting the law“If ye love me, keep my commandments,”(St.John 14: 15)“The Lord is well pleased for his righteousnesssake: he will magnify the law and make ithonorable,”(Isaiah 43: 20)“Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Fatherwhich is in heaven is perfect,”(Matthew 5:48) ©2012 Household Of Israel Temple Of Jesus Christ.

  12. 12. Scripturessupporting the lawFor he established a testimony in Jacob, and appointed a lawin Israel, which he commanded our fathers, that they should make them known to their children. That the generation to come might know them, even the children which should be born; who should arise and declare them to their children: That they might set their hope in God, and not forget the works of God, but keep his commandments: (Psalms 78: 5-7) ©2012 Household Of Israel Temple Of Jesus Christ.

  13. 13. Scriptures often misunderstoodThere are scriptures in the bible that can be misconstrued tohave a different meaning if one does not review them closely “For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace” (Romans 6: 14)When looking at this scripture it may leave one with theimpression that you do not have to keep the commandments ofGod because we have been granted graceIn the same chapter the Apostle Paul also stated this....“What then? shall we sin, because we are not under the law, but under grace? God forbid.(Romans 6: 15)” ©2012 Household Of Israel Temple Of Jesus Christ. All Rights Reserved
  14. 14. Scriptures often misunderstoodGiven that sin is defined as the transgression of the commandmentsit would seem that Apostle Paul is contradicting himself; however,this is not the casePaul’s writings were inspired by the Holy Spirit but are oftendifficult to understandThere are three laws that Paul would discuss in his teachings Sacrificial Law - the law of sacrificing & offering of animals during the Levitical Priesthood Law of Sin & Death - Eternal death & condemnation if you commit a sin (“The soul that sinneth shall die...”) (Romans 8: 2) Law of the Spirit of Life -this law commands us to walk under the guidance of the Holy Spirit who will teach us to obey the 1o commandments & abstain from the works of the flesh, which is sin (Romans 8: 2)Paul would often state ‘the law’ without specifying which law hewas referring to in his writings ©2012 Household Of Israel Temple Of Jesus Christ. All Rights Reserved
  15. 15. Grace & the LawSo which law was Paul referring to with the scripturebelow?..... “For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace” (Romans 6: 14)He was referring to the Law of Sin & DeathSince the sin of Adam & Eve, ALL of us were born in sinIf we were still under the Law of Sin & Death we would ALL diethe eternal death & there would be no hope for usBy being under grace, God has granted us TIME & anOPPORTUNITY to seek & obey his commandments so that we cangain eternal life & escape eternal damnation ©2012 Household Of Israel Temple Of Jesus Christ.
