Joeland7--you are a "legalist" that Jesus warned about (Gospel of Jesus)

posted by bibleprobe(R) Homepage, Mass., 07.17.2007

Jesus warned us about legalists like you Joeland7. The Pharisees were legalists just like you. They insisted the Law said they needed to be circumcised, yet they broke the LAW by not loving their neighbors. That is the essence of the NEW TESTAMENT; something NEW that Jesus did. Love God and love your neighbor.

"SIN SHALL NOT BE YOUR MASTER, *[b]BECAUSE YOU ARE NOT UNDER LAW, BUT UNDER GRACE*" (Romans 6:14).

"WE HAVE BEEN RELEASED FROM THE LAW SO THAT WE SERVE IN THE NEW WAY OF THE SPIRIT, AND NOT IN THE OLD WAY OF THE WRITTEN CODE" (Rom. 7:6).

The apostle Paul, a Jew said, "I MYSELF AM NOT UNDER THE LAW" (1 Cor. 9:20).

Every early Church Father told us the same thing the Apostle Paul did. Christians are NOT under the LAW of Moses. That is for the Jews. Seventh Day Adventists (SDA) run up to this teaching and immediately scream; "Traditions of Men" to protect their SDA lies and their Sabbatarian enslavement. Quite simply, Jesus' sacrifice IS/WAS sufficient. He is the Law and the Law ended with Jesus. Christians are under the GRACE of the Lord Jesus--no longer enslaved by a LAW, which NOBODY could keep fully. Under the Old Law, miss any tiny part of it and you were in grave trouble.

Traditions of the Curch go back to the early Church fathers who walked, and talked with the Apostles. They listened to their sermons.

*The New Testament is very clear concerning the fact that Christians are not under the Law*, which, of course, includes what is called the Ten Commandments, but because of the apostasy and *demonic false teaching* (such as by Seventh Day Adventists and Millerites) this truth has become obscure in the teaching and training of many Christians, even eminent church leaders.

Many Christians today have been deceived by legalists on the one hand and liberals on the other; the former having a pharisaical spirit, thinking that outward conformity to the commandments of God is the essence of Christianity, and the latter justifying their easy believism, worldliness, and suffering-avoidance by yelling "legalism" and proclaiming their "liberty in Christ" and "the letter killeth but the spirit giveth life."

JESUS SAID HIMSELF --HE WAS THE FULFILLMENT OF THE LAW. If something is fulfilled there is no longer any payment required. Jesus made that payment. Don't kick Jesus in the teeth by telling Him, what He did wasnot enough. Jesus fulfilled the Law...

Jesus said, "Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. For verily I say unto you, Til heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, til all be fulfilled" (Mat. 5:17-18). Jesus did indeed fulfil the law. Jesus is the personification of Love. Paul, inspired by the Spirit of Christ wrote, "He that loveth another hath fulfilled the law" (Rom. 13:8) and "Love worketh no ill to his neighbour: therefore love is the fulfilling of the law" (Rom. 13:10) and "*The law is fulfilled in one word, even this; Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself*." Jesus loved even His enemies; even those who crucified Him, enough to die on the cross in incomprehensible agony.

The Jews, who have rejected Christ and therefore are not led by His Spirit, are still under the Law. And many Christ-less Jews have died over the past 2,000 years and are in hell waiting the Day of Judgment.

4. "NOW THAT FAITH HAS COME, WE ARE NO LONGER UNDER THE SUPERVISION OF THE LAW" (Gal. 3:25).

5. "YOU HAVE BEEN SEVERED FROM CHRIST, YOU WHO ARE SEEKING TO BE JUSTIFIED BY LAW; YOU HAVE FALLEN FROM GRACE" (Gal. 5:4).

6. "IF YOU ARE LED BY THE SPIRIT YOU ARE NOT UNDER THE LAW" (Gal. 5:18).

7. "THOSE WHO ARE CIRCUMCISED [JEWS] DO NOT EVEN KEEP THE LAW THEMSELVES" (Gal. 6:11).

8. "IF RIGHTEOUSNESS COULD BE GAINED THROUGH [KEEPING] THE LAW, CHRIST DIED FOR NOTHING!" (Gal. 2:21).

9. "GENTLES...DO NOT HAVE THE LAW...THEY DO NOT HAVE THE LAW" (Rom. 2:14) (Gentiles never have had the Law.)

10. "NO ONE WILL BE DECLARED RIGHTEOUS IN HIS [GOD'S] SIGHT BY OBSERVING THE LAW" (Rom. 3:20).

11. "SIN SHALL NOT BE YOUR MASTER, BECAUSE YOU ARE NOT UNDER LAW, BUT UNDER GRACE" (Rom. 6:14).

12. "WE HAVE BEEN RELEASED FROM THE LAW SO THAT WE SERVE IN THE NEW WAY OF THE SPIRIT, AND NOT IN THE OLD WAY OF THE WRITTEN CODE" (Rom. 7:6).

13. "CHRIST IS THE END OF THE LAW ... FOR EVERYONE WHO BELIEVES" (Rom. 10:4).
