This is where you are missing the mark!! Jesus died for ALL our sins..He died ONCE for ALL..sound familiar?? The Believer is NOT judged by the law.. We have been JUSTIFIED through the blood of Jesus Christ. DO you understand what JUSTIFIED truly means? Obviously not. We as believers, Will stand in front of God, "BLAMLESS" "SINLESS" "HOLY" "WITHOUT SPOT OR BLEMISH" HOW?? BEACUSE WE ARE IN CHRIST. Thats what Jesus done for us..The Holy Spirit gives us the Power to avoid the temptation of sin but we are mere humans and sometimes we will fall back into our fleshly ways instead of allowing the Spirit. That doesnt bring us condemnation..The Spirit reminds us who we are in Christ Jesus and we continue on with the race that is set before us..FAITH is what we endure. Look how many people tell us that our faith is wrong and present very good arguments but I put my trust in Jesus and His finished works..I will endure until the end..With this Faith..<quoted text>
Ms. Walker, you are correct, once you are forgiven you are free from teh Law of sin and death until you break the Commandments again and again must ask for forgiveness. Unless you're saying that once you're in "Christ" that you cannot sin. As we all know by now, the "SIN" is the Transgression of the "LAW". people sin daily, christian or otherwise.
The scripture that you quoted explained the Law of the Spirit of Life but does it say the Commandments are voided? Remember James 2:14-26 explains that faith without works is dead. Works are deeds as it Thou Shalt and Thou Shalt Not as seen in the Commandments.
Matthew 5:17-19 (KJV)
19 Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.
Fulfill is clearly not destroyed. The Law is Fulfilled (fully accomplished) when salvation is complete. That is, when His people are in His Kingdom. heaven and Earth still exists so His Law hasn't passed away.
In Revelation 22:14-15 (KJV) the Last chapter in the Bible, it says specifically:
Verse 14 is key but take not of what verse 15 says. How does it prophet anyone to say that the Commandments are done away with unless they are rebellious?
Not because we have Grace mean we also have Lawlessness, for we are all sinners who have fallen short of His glory. Imagine your city without Laws and the school your children attend without rules? What utter chaos that would be.
All of the power that it takes to save any human being, to heal any human being, to deliver any human being, came into this earth on the Day of Pentecost. When Jesus walked into a place, the power was there to heal the people. Why? Because the power was in Him. He said, "The Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works" (John 14:10). Now, that power is in you because you are in Him. Because you are in Christ Jesus, you can live like Him, talk like Him, and act like Him. The Word of God will change you - spirit, soul, and body. Sanctification...Know what that means?
redeemed..know what that means? Justified by faith..do you know what that means?
You are called a joint-heir with Christ Jesus. The Word says that when you accepted Jesus as your Lord, you became one spirit with Him. You are in Him. God sees you in Jesus. He not only came inside you, but you went inside Him.
As He is..SO are we in this world..because we are IN Him.
Have you ever heard the phrase: "But I'm so unworthy"? That was true before you got saved. You were not worthy to receive what Jesus did. But He did it anyway! Because He died for you, you can live in Him. He made you worthy. You have been created in Christ Jesus and there is nothing unworthy in Him
