It’s not a Focus on the Law, Rather it’s a Focus on His Love

~@ROliverLuce

It’s not a focus on the law! Rather it’s through our focus on God’s love that we are able to keep Torah.

The Ten Commandments came that the Jews would be exposed to their need for God’s love which had been gradually revealed to their slow understanding as a nation!

Of course there were always a remnant of every generation that would ‘get it’; There were those (the remnant) who would understand God’s forgiveness and love in a limited way, i.e. those who could understand (however still clouded) that it was not the animal sacrifices that covered their sins, but it was their heart, their faith, their trust in God’s Word through obedience in making animal sacrifices to God.  This limited view was clouded through their still focus on the law perhaps! The real sacrifices would come through our repentance and change of heart through believing God’s Word that also does lead to obedience in the terms of God’s covenant! As we grow in Him we learn to become more responsible through the power of His love and forgiveness.

But through the coming of the commandments it was shown flesh & blood could not, and cannot, keep all of the law (Torah & 10 commandments) much less most of them all the time.

The Father’s Covenant of Love (Genesis 15:17) is the secret through the one who came to SEAL IT (Covenant) with HIS once & for all blood-sacrifice to satisfy ‘The Law of Sin and Death’ that we might become free through accepting that Sacrifice into our hearts with repentance.

HE did come, really, to show the way to God’s love and how to walk in HIS grace-wisdom.

Now, Jesus did not come to abolish the Torah nor its 10 commandments but rather to fulfill it all with His first coming. And that through Him the law (Torah and commandments) could be kept through HIS power of love that would be in them (that’s us); that is through HIS power and His Holy Inspiration (the Holy Spirit) it can happen for a surety!

Faith & Works from God’s Word of Promise

~ROliverLuce | 03-21-15

In Galatians 2, it has been said we are justified by faith and not by our works nor by our works of the law either. We do believe this! So to put further light on this subject so that we might walk in victory, for whose of us who put our Trust in our God and the Lord Jesus the Christ, let me bring up something the Apostle James has written and has taught centuries ago now in the ReNewed Covenant (formerly known as the New Testament)!

Faith does come from God’s Word and it does produce works (if we choose to act) from our Spirit, even from HIS inspiration, HIS Holy Spirit inspiration!!

But we do know, the works from the flesh and of the law do not save us!
On the other hand faith without works is dead which means there is a work that saves and there are works of the law (that saves) if we know that the law only points us to faith and trust in the Truth. And Truth is a Person!
And if we have Faith that comes of the Word of Promise then our works must come from our faith, our trust from our spirit RATHER than originate from our flesh or the law that we might even boast of our own selves without considering that God is our provision and help and not we of ourselves.

James 2:14-26 NASB
(14) What use is it, my brethren, if someone says he has faith but he has no works? Can that faith save him?
(15) If a brother or sister is without clothing and in need of daily food,
(16) and one of you says to them, “Go in peace, be warmed and be filled,” and yet you do not give them what is necessary for their body, what use is that?
(17) Even so faith, if it has no works, is dead, being by itself.
(18) But someone may well say, “You have faith and I have works; show me your faith without the works, and I will show you my faith by my works.”
(19) You believe that God is one. You do well; the demons also believe, and shudder.
(20) But are you willing to recognize, you foolish fellow, that faith without works is useless?
(21) Was not Abraham our father justified by works when he offered up Isaac his son on the altar?
(22) You see that faith was working with his works, and as a result of the works, faith was perfected;
(23) and the Scripture was fulfilled which says, “AND ABRAHAM BELIEVED GOD, AND IT WAS RECKONED TO HIM AS RIGHTEOUSNESS,” and he was called the friend of God.
(24) You see that a man is justified by works and not by faith alone.
(25) In the same way, was not Rahab the harlot also justified by works when she received the messengers and sent them out by another way?

(26) For just as the body without the spirit is dead, so also faith without works is dead.

The Trinity in Freewill Relationship {w-ref.verses}

The Father, is the initiator of the Godhead, creates, gives birth, and thereby selects all those who are the inheritors of the Kingdom of God! It’s at this point the Father gives and presents them to the Son so to speak! This is when they might either do the works of repentance of their sins or they REFUSE to humble themselves before the Son. Even in the face of the anointing of the Holy Spirit they will do this! For who can be accepted and forgiven by the Son if they refuse and make mockery the Spirit of Truth with their unbelief and unrepentant attitude in the light of their own gods they still hold on too. Mat.3:7,8; Luke 3:8*; Mat.12:31; Mark 4:12; Luke 12:10; Gen.1:26; John 1:1;

Many might believe in the person Jesus but they CAN NOT acknowledge Jesus as Lord-God except by acknowledging and accepting the spirit of truth. Only with this attitude can they accept the Son into their hearts. Those who truly seek Jesus as LORD are on the side of truth! And that truth is even self-evident in nature, in our consciences, and the universe. Rom.1:23; Mat.12:31; Luke 12:10; 1Co.12:3;

Moreover, for the Son is the Father’s own WORD of PROMISE. It’s this promise of His Covenant that it’s a commitment to those who He chose from out of birthing and out of creation who will and might accept the sacrifice that seals the deal. And that deal has been SEALED by His own sacrifice in seriousness(blood)!! And this promise and this Word is that they might grow in righteousness to glorify the Father. Gen.15:17,18; Gen.17:10; Luke 22:20; Rom.9:9; 1Kings 8:56;

The Son is His express image of Himself, the Father! And the Son is His proof of the promise that His SON did the work He was sent to do. To deal with sin and to put it away for our salvation from dead fleshly works of which we are slaves through a life of sin ruling over us. Col.1:15; 2Cor.4:4; Acts 11:18; John 3:16; 1John 4:10; 1John 4:9; 1Cor.1:12; Col.2:18; 2Pet.2:18;

Clearly, Jesus is the sacrifice that sealed the deal on the Covenant of love. And the spirit of truth is the Holy Spirit that is the anointing on the Son, the Father’s living Word! The Holy Spirit is that spirit of truth that woos the Father’s Word of promise to inspire and convince us all, that HE is alive and we have a hope and a future! Gen.15:17,18; Gen.17:10; Jere.29:11; Jere.31:17; Prov.23:18; Prov.24:14; Gal.4:6;

Again, His Word, His Son is His express image and promise that He will never renege on His Covenant which has wonderful benefits and terrible consequences. Col.1:15; 2Cor.4:4; Col.3:25;

Post Script:
The Father through His Holy Spirit draws all men (people) to Himself through the Son, who is His only sure WORD. Of all those He draws to Himself are everyone whom the Creator has created to become the inheritors for Kingdom living through repentance from dead works of the attitudes of the flesh without the living Holy Spirit to empower them as they were created to do. They/we were created to do exploits in subduing this Earth for the Kingdom of God that our spirits would grow and mature to glorify the Father-God for all eternity! We are all called to greatness in a progressive and great destiny for His glory. Mat.6:37,44; Mat.3:7; Jere.29:11;  

His glory means we have joy in doing what we see Him doing in nature, in relationship, and in the universe. Read the Bible!
