Delivered From The Law

A HEBREW SAGE MIGHT SAY. . .
He who gives a coin to a poor man is rewarded with six blessings.  But, he who encourages him with friendly words is rewarded with eleven. [Jewish saying]

DELIVERED FROM THE LAW    
"For the Law made nothing perfect; on the other hand, there is the bringing in of a better hope, through which we draw near to GOD...by so much more JESUS has become a surety of a better covenant." [Hebrews 7. 19, 22]

The Law of Righteous stands forever (morals, correct behavior, justice, honesty).  The Law of Atonement (animal sacrifices) is done away with as it was completely fulfilled in the LORD YESHUA ha'MASHIACH.  The Law, ALMIGHTY GOD declared that we are delivered from, is the carnal, weak and unprofitable Law of Atonement through animal sacrifice that could never make anyone perfect.  A person does not grow in his spirituality (become spiritually mature) if he follows the Unprofitable Law (Law of Atonement) which the ETERNAL ONE has put away.  One draws near to the BELOVED CREATOR — not by keeping the carnal commandment but by following a BETTER HOPE — the LORD JESUS, WHO is the fulfillment of all the HEBREW SCRIPTURES!  "There arises another PRIEST WHO has come, not according to the Law of a fleshly commandment, but according to the power of an endless life...For on the one hand there is an annulling of the former commandment (OLD COVENANT) because of its weakness and unprofitableness." [Hebrews 7. 15 - 16, 18]

The entire legal system (called "The First Tabernacle" — Hebrews 9. 8) was a figure for that time when gifts and sacrifices were offered but could not make them "perfect" (cleanse them from sins as pertaining to the conscience).  They were outward, fleshly, carnal rituals which were observed to represent that which was to come and be fulfilled in the ANOINTED ONE WHO brought about the reformation.  HE brought a BETTER COVENANT, a BETTER SACRIFICE, a BETTER PRIESTHOOD.   By the ONE SUPREME SACRIFICE on the Altar of Calvary, GOD OMNISCIENT has completely "put away" all ceremonies and sacrifices as found in the Law of Moses.  However, HE allowed the Jewish people to continue observing their rituals until the destruction of Jerusalem.  From that time on they could not continue under the Mosaic System.  This is the way the ALMIGHTY HOLY ONE HIMSELF made the observance of the Law impossible, further emphasizing this by the admonition through Paul, HIS Jewish Apostle:  "Therefore by the deeds of the Law no flesh (Jew or Gentile) will be justified in HIS sight, for by the Law is the knowledge of sin." [Romans 3. 24 - 31; 4. 1 - 21; Galatians 3. 19 - 25]

The Law of Moses is called "the Law of a carnal commandment."  When one is delivered from the "carnal commandment" by believing in the LORD JESUS , the CRUCIFIED ONE , he is putting himself back under bondage when he continues to observe the carnal law (which has to do with the flesh).  Speaking in regards of the Gentiles conforming to the Laws and rituals of the OLD COVENANT, Peter declared to his own Jewish brothers that they were as a yoke and were difficult to bear (by him, his Jewish brothers of his day, and their Jewish forefathers).  Peter questioned the Jews who were burdening the Gentiles with this yoke.  He pointed out that these rituals under the Law then were not a joy and did not make the Jewish person any better by observing them.

Peter, speaking of the Gentiles (to the Jews) said, "Now therefore, why do you test GOD by putting a yoke on the neck of the disciples which neither our fathers nor we were able to bear? But we believe that through the grace of the LORD JESUS CHRIST we shall be saved in the same manner as they." [Acts 15. 7 - 11]

It is not by our rituals of the Law, but by the GRACE OF THE LORD that Jew or Gentile shall be finally and completely saved.  But didn't our Jewish brother, Paul, have a vow under the Law which he kept? [Acts 21. 18 - 28]  Paul did go back under the Law to appease our own Jewish people, perhaps to try to win them to their MESSIAH, yet this did not attract them to salvation, rather they tried to kill him after he had done this!  Also, our father Abraham did not observe the works of the law since he was before the Law.  Nor did he observe the ceremonies, never kept any of the Feast Days, Sabbaths, washings, etc. — yet he is called "the father" of the Jews and Gentiles who believe in the ONE WHO is the TRUE BREAD OF LIFE!

The SCRIPTURES show that in the LORD JESUS there is no difference between Jew and Gentile when it pertains to following the NEW COVENANT.  Both have been set free from bondage of the carnal commandment which has to do with fleshly works.  They are now "spiritual" for they follow the "Spiritual Commandment" of the NEW COVENANT.  One does not carry burdens of the Law when the GREAT SHEPHERD has delivered these burdens from him.  He does not follow a "dead and profitless Law" — (as the ALMIGHTY ONE called it) — when New Life and a BETTER COVENANT has come!

Oh, my people Israel, and all who have been delivered out of bondage, the yoke of rituals, the commandments of men with their traditions, opinions and interpretations. . . MESSIAH YESHUA has made us free; so stand fast and do not be entangled again with a yoke of bondage!  In the LORD JESUS CHRIST neither circumcision nor un-circumcision avails anything, but faith working through love avails everything. [Galatians 5. 1, 6]  O taste and see that the LORD is good!


Sha'alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of Jerusalem and all of Israel!
I praise and thank YOU, ALMIGHTY ONE, GREAT GOD OF HEAVEN for YOU comfort and delight my soul. YOU are my ROCK  and my REFUGE, YOU are my HOPE & DELIGHT, the ONE in whom I place my trust.
Day 35 of the Omer. Malchut Hod (Nobility in Humility). Dignity is the essence of humility and modesty. The splendor of humility is majestic and noble. Walk humbly with the LORD your GOD.

Praying for the peace of Jerusalem, is praying for the return of our Messiah and Lord and for the Kingdom of God He is bringing when He comes.  Then God's Will shall be done on earth as it is in Heaven and the world will experience true godly universal peace which is the fruit of Righteousness.

What Each Area of the Site is Meant For: Blogs - This is your personal space. This is where you should post thoughts that are not intended for extensive further discussion. Observations from personal study and events that have occurred in your life belong here. Unless your post ends with questions or makes it apparent that discussion is to follow, it should probably be a blog. As discussed later, blogs are limited to those who hold to historic Christian beliefs. Forums - This is for open discussion relating to the topic posted. Dialogue is encouraged to stay on topic, so if a side conversation begins, open a new discussion. This is where the majority of the activity has taken place so far. Topics should remain general in nature, while in depth discussion on narrow topics should take place in groups. Groups - This is a place to congregate with people who have similar interests and positions in order to have open discussion. The conversation in here is not required to remain on topic, so it is more ready to follow rabbit trails. This is where you should go if you want to gather with a particular kind of theologian. Before initiating a new group, we ask that you consider posting a question in the discussion forum area to see if there is enough interest to justify a separate group. The reason we encourage such action is that, in the event that a group is inactive for 6 months or more, the moderators of Scriptural Studies reserve the right to close down and delete the group due to inactivity. Events - This is available to anyone that wants to post an event that you think the members of Scriptural Studies may be interested in. Contact Denis, Rabbi Del, Rifkah, or Marti for more details on advertising. Our Attitude of conduct: In case you missed them on your way in, take some time to become acquainted with the conduct we expect on this site. You may find our Attidudes on the main forum page. Our purpose at Scripural Studies is that the conversations move in a Gracious way. We define Gracious in the following way: 1) Not closed minded 2) Not self-promoting 3) Not characterized by mass amounts of cut-and-paste proof-texting 4) Not characterized by mass amounts of cut-and-paste from other places 5) Irenic 6) Not slanderous 7) No spamming 8) Perpetual venting bitterness 9) Not confusing or disruptive But in all things you'll be welcome here
