Law or Mercy?

With the Law, Appropriate Sacrifice, Needed

 

For the Israelites, transgressing the Law [Mosaic Law, commonly known as Ten Commandments],

resulted in PUNISHMENT WITHOUT MERCY [with FEW exceptions, King David being one such].

Deuteronomy 5:32 to 33 read: And you people MUST TAKE CARE TO DO JUST AS

JEHOVAH your God has COMMANDED you, you should walk, in order that YOU MAY LIVE

and it may be well with you and you may lengthen your days in the land of which you will take

possession.

 ALL OF God's COMMANDMENTS WERE TO BE OBEYED. This is evidenced at

Deuteronomy 6:2 which reads: ... in order that you may *fear Jehovah your God

so as to KEEP ALL HIS STATUTES AND HIS COMMANDMENTS that I am

commanding you, you and your son and your grandson, all the days of your life, and in

order that your DAYS MAY PROVE LONG. [*FEAR of God means; Proverbs 8:13]

This is SUPPORTED AT James 2:10 which reads: For whoever observes ALL the Law but

makes a FALSE STEP IN ONE POINT, he has BECOME AN OFFENDER AGAINST

THEM ALL.

The Law is PERFECT.

Psalm 19:7 reads: The Law of Jehovah is PERFECT, bringing back the soul.

The reminder of Jehovah is trustworthy, making the inexperienced one wise.

Law is spiritual, man is fleshly.

Romans 7:14 reads: For we know that the Law is spiritual; but I am fleshly, sold under sin.

Once fleshly persons, who were SOLD UNDER SIN, have OPTION, of being BOUGHT

BY THE BLOOD OF CHRIST TO LEAD SPIRITUAL LIVES.  [More on this later]

 

The Law and Prophets were UNTIL JOHN the Baptist.

Luke 16:16 reads: The Law and the Prophets were until John. From then on the kingdom

of God is being declared as good news, and every sort of person IS PRESSING

FORWARD TOWARD IT. 

God Almighty, Jehovah, has MADE A PROVISION FOR THE FORGIVENESS OF

SINS OF TRULY REPENTANT ONES, also, ADAMIC SIN WAS PAID IN FULL

FOR THOSE WHO PUT THEIR FAITH AND WORKS IN THIS PROVISION.

John 3:16; James 2: 17; John 4:23, 24; John 17:3; John 1:29; John 3:36. 2 Cor. 5:14, 15.

 

Spirtual Life ALLOWS US TO OBEY God's Laws, but we are NOT UNDER LAW.

 

At Galatians 5:16 to 18, we read:

But I say, keep walking by SPIRIT and you will carry out NO FLESHLY DESIRE at all.

For the FLESH is AGAINST the SPIRIT in its DESIRE, and the spirit is against the flesh, for these

are OPPOSED to each other, so that the very things that you would like to do you do not do.

Furthermore, if you are being LED by spirit, you are NOT UNDER LAW.

 [If we were to make a WRONG step and sin against God, with genuine REPENTANCE

WE MAY BE FORGIVEN by God. Jeremiah 31:34; Hebrews 8:12; if under Law, with

the evidence of two witnesses one is executed.]

 

Adverse Judgment

 

Mark 3:29 reads: However, whoever blasphemes against the holy spirit has no forgiveness

forever, but is guilty of everlasting sin.

Similarly, Hebrews 10:26 to 31, show that the deliberate practising of sin, after

being convinced of the TRUTH, will result in adverse judgment.

1 John 3: 4- 10 read: Everyone who practises sin is also practising lawlessness, and so sin is

lawlessness. You know too that that one was made manifest to take away [our] sins, and there is no

sin in him. Everyone remaining in union with him does NOT practise sin, NO ONE that practises sin

has either seen him or come to KNOW him.

Little children, let NO ONE MISLEAD YOU, he who carries on righteousness is righteous just

as that one is righteous. He who carries on sin originates with the Devil, because the Devil has

been sinning from the beginning. FOR THIS PURPOSE THE SON OF GOD WAS MADE

MANIFEST, NAMELY, TO BREAK UP THE WORKS OF THE Devil.

Everyone who has been born from God DOES NOT CARRY ON sin, because His [reproductive]

seed remains in such one, and he CANNOT PRACTISE SIN, because he has been born

from God. THE CHILDREN OF GOD AND THE CHILDREN OF THE Devil are EVIDENT

BY THIS ONE FACT: EVERYONE WHO DOES NOT CARRY ON RIGHTEOUSNESS

DOES NOT ORIGINATE WITH God, NEITHER DOES HE WHO DOES NOT LOVE HIS

BROTHER.

 

All WICKEDNESS will be done away with for ALL TIME as shown

at Revelation 21: 8: But as for the cowards and those without faith and those who are

disgusting in their filth and murderers and fornicators and those practicing spiritism and idolators and all the liars, their portion will be in the lake that burns with fire and sulphur.

This MEANS the second DEATH.

Ro 1: 28-32 warns; And just as they did not approve of holding God in accurate knowledge, God

gave them up to a disapproved mental state, to do the things not fitting, filled as they were with all unrighteousness, wickedness, covetousness, badness, being whisperers, backbiters, haters of

God, insolent, haughty, self-assuming, inventors of injurious things, disobedient to parents, without understanding, false to agreements, having no natural affection, merciless. Although these know full

well the righteous decree of God, that those practising such things are deserving of death, they not

only keep on doing them but also consent with those practicing them.
