Classic Christianity – A Closer Look at Law & Grace P14 (10-18-22)
There is More Than One Type of Death in the Bible. The Law Produces Death in Me. Jesus Brings Life to The Dead.
~ “I found that the very commandment that was intended to bring life actually brought death.” Romans 7:10
~ So what does that mean? “You see, you can’t serve two masters, you can’t serve the risen Christ and the law at the same time, because you’re serving one thing that produces death, and another produces life. So which one are you going to serve and if I start serving the other, I’m dead. When I serve the other, I’m alive. You can’t serve two masters. That’s what quite frankly, this scripture talking about that a double minded man is unstable in all ways. That is a man who has got one foot in the law and one foot in the grace of God. It is the condition of the Galatians, the Galatianism, you foolish, idiotic Galatians, who has hypnotized you cast an evil spell upon you? And he asked them the question, Did you receive the Spirit of God by obedience to the law, or … Listen to Broadcast & Read More

How Am I Going to Be Righteous in The Sight of God? Only Through Faith in Jesus.
~ “We know that whatever the law says, and all of course, all of this teaching in this particular lesson is what is the purpose of the law? In other words, why did God give us the law? Well, it says, Well, you know, that whatever the law says, it says to those who are under the law, so that every mouth may be silenced, and the whole world held accountable to God. So if you want to be under the law, you’re going to have to be accountable to God, not to one another, but accountable to God, and what the accountability to God is, have you violated the least of these my commandments in your entire lifetime? Because if you have, you’d better hope you’re not under the law, because the wages of sin is death. And it says, later on, you’re under a curse. But he’s saying this, folks, to those of you who are under the law, you’ve been taught under the law, you’re under legalism. You … Listen to Broadcast & Read More

How Can We Be Righteous Before God? Only By Faith in Jesus, the One Who is Righteous.
~ “But now the righteousness of God without the law is manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets; Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference: For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;” Romans 6:21-23
~ “And God says, Wait a minute, you missed the purpose. I showed you these things in order to show you your total inability to ever live up to that law. And also to tell you very clearly, that even if you did, you’d never be declared righteous in my sight through obedience to the law, that righteousness is going to have to be imputed to you declared to you.
Now it says in verse 21, but now a righteousness from God, apart from the law has been made known to which the law and the prophets testify. So it’s saying, wait a minute, if I cannot be declared righteous in His … Listen to Broadcast & Read More

What is The Purpose of The Law? What is the Penalty of the Law? What is the Verdict?
~ “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” Romans 6:23
~ “Now, so to whoever it, the law is speaking, it’s speaking to those who are under it. So if you’re under the law, then here’s the result of being under the law, every mouth will be silenced, and the whole world held accountable to God. So in other words, if you’re going to say, I am under God’s laws, then if you’re one of those, and that was certainly the Hebrew, and that would certainly be the case of a lot of modern day Christianity who are proclaiming and preaching the law. The law, then is for you, if I’m under it, then I’m under it. And it’s for you. And there, if you’re under it, there was one reason that you’re under it. And there’s one reason God allowed you to be under it. And that was to shut your mouth, and to make you … Listen to Broadcast & Read More

Jesus Wants You to Enter Into The Promised Land
~ Just as the Israelites of the days they came out of Egypt and crossed over the Red Sea, by the power of God, they still refused to go into the promised land, we are much like them today. They refused to trust God and refused to cross over from the desert, into a land flowing with milk and honey. So too with us. We get saved and are set free from being a slave in Egypt, but still live as a slave in the desert. We fail to trust God and cross over into the promised land. We can be busy and barren in the desert or we can live in the promised land that Jesus provided for us and be rich and alive in Christ Jesus, where you rest from your works and live in Him. The choice is yours. You will not be happy in the desert though and you will never be able to go back to Egypt either. You will hate it in the desert. You will only have manna to eat and will … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
