The Law, Then and Now: What About Grace?

Content Sample

As we embark on this spiritual journey, the first thing we need to understand is the purpose and the components of the Law. We need to see and grasp all that God has said in His word, which is the Scriptures. Without that understanding we are hopelessly lost in a maze of unbiblical Christian belief, tradition, and opinions. We need to have a proper biblical view of the whole law system that God gave to Moses and Israel at Mt. Sinai. We must recognize that this law was given to Jewish people as a conditional covenant and not to Gentiles.

Many Christians today have an unbiblical relationship to the Mosaic law and a complete lack of understanding of or knowledge of what replaced it; many do not want to believe it was replaced! The new relationship that believers have with God in Messiah is something called the Law of Messiah (Christ), which is a direct result of the New Covenant in His blood. Paul initiates the phrases Law of Messiah, the Law to Messiah, and the Law of the Spirit of Life in three of his epistles, which Christianity has paid little attention to or misunderstands what Paul states: "For the law of the Spirit of life in Messiah Yeshua has made me free from the law of sin and death [the Mosaic law system]" (Romans 8:2).
