I love how the Holy Spirit speaks to me, to give me understanding. Just out of no-where, but after a prayer…..This is when the Holy Spirit spoke to me, that grace is still a law.
There are mysteries my friend, that only God can reveal, but where they in their simplicity, can be those “Ahha Moments” Where it just makes sense. Where the understanding increases, because one knows Gods ways.
The goal is to get the mind of Christ. To try, and understand God, in the mystery of who He is. But you cannot know Him, unless you know His commandments, His word, His law. I always promote the King James Bible. For this reason, it is not compromised, it is holy, anointed, and powerful. Nothing missing.
God does not change, we do. He is a mighty and powerful God, and to honor Him, is to fear Him, to love Him, to see we are nothing without Him. Life is not life, without Christ. So I take every word and I ponder on it, I chew it, and swallow it, for it is my spiritual food. It becomes a part of me.
Today, as I was pondering on some teachings, that teach grace, which is what we are saved by, but deny the law, I prayed. I hear so many teachings that go on, and on, about the grace. But it is almost like they dismiss the law, they denote it, and they give it no balance in their teachings. Yes, we have grace by Christ. But there is a balance in there. Let me ask you this, why did God give us the law to begin with?
Because He saw, mankind, did not have any understanding, or know how to live. Between right and wrong. Yet there is no way, we all can keep the law, because we all sin, and come short of the glory of God. But you do not deny it. You do not deny the law. It is still there!
So God sent His son, so he would take the law, the penalty for our sin. Yet, Christ told us, He did not come to abolish the law, but to fulfill it.
The Holy spirit, spoke to me, that GRACE IS A LAW. It comes by the blood of Jesus. It becomes law, a law of grace, when you give your heart to Christ. Without that law, you are not protected. You are not extended grace. You are subject to be sent to hell, without it.
But you need to know the law. All of God’s law. To grow, to have a parameter, to test your own spirit. And there are so many teachings, that actually dismiss the law. And I want you to be aware, when you hear these messages, that they do not give any foundation, or understanding, to how the law would affect us, without grace. One cannot appreciate grace, unless we know Gods law.
There is the old and new testament. And yes we are in a new covenant with Christ. And there are things we do not do, say for example sacrificing anything, because Christ became the sacrifice. But we are to know, the law. We are to ponder on it. This is where our conscious becomes aware, of the condemnation, or the conviction of it. This is what gives us understanding to grow, and to depart from sin. And let me just say this. Condemnation comes from the devil. Conviction comes from God, so we can change our ways. And REPENT!
God did not give the law, for nothing, it still is in affect. It still has principles that are established. Gods word in a lot of scriptures tells us to love it. Psalms 119, talks about the word, the law, and Gods ways….
I recommend reading it. From the King James Bible.
Let me just say this, without getting into a deep theological debate or conversation. To know Gods law, means you know God. You understand Him. The grace, then is so appreciated, because you know then by Christ you are not under the law. But you have to know the law, to understand God. Yes, even with the fear of God. For when that kicks in as well, you understand, how precious your salvation is. For God holds our lives, and our souls, in His hands.
THE LAW OF THY MOUTH IS BETTER UNTO ME THAN THOUSANDS OF GOLD AND SILVER. THY HANDS HAVE MADE ME AND FASHIONED ME: GIVE ME UNDERSTANDING THAT I MAY LEARN THY COMMANDMENTS. THEY THAT FEAR THEE WILL BE GLAD WHEN THEY SEE ME, BECAUSE I HAVE HOPED IN THY WORD. Psalm 119:72-74.
Just my thoughts, with love, in service to God, and you, by Christ, Elena Ramirez
Father, teach us your ways, your law, so we can understand how precious our salvation is. In Jesus name. I will not dismiss your law, but with all my heart, because of what Christ did, I will honor it, as much as I can, because you have given it to us. In Jesus name. Amen
Please Note: These are my thoughts, they are not up for debate or for argument. You may take this or leave it, but it is not my intention, to get into an argument over this. My promptings are from the Holy Spirit, and from the word of God. For I do love, God’s word, and law.
But avoid foolish questions, and genealogies, and contentions, and strivings about the law, for they are unprofitable and vain. A man that is an heretic after the first and second admonition reject; Knowing that he that is such is subverted, and sinneth, being condemned of himself. Titus 3:9-11
