Beautifully written RA,<quoted text>
Everything in God's Word still stands today. But much of what Jesus taught was directed to whom he was speaking to. Jesus even said that some of the things he was teaching was not directed at or meant for the gentiles. Much of what Jesus taught was about the law pertaining to the Jews.
Are we under the law anymore? Nope, we are now living in the age of grace, under the new covenant that wasn't available until after Jesus died on the cross, was raised from the dead, and ascended to Heaven, where He sits on the right hand of God interceding for us and "all of our sins". That's the mystery that was kept from satan and the princes of darkness of this world that is talked about in 1st Corinthians 2.
Once satan realised that man was no longer bound and condemned by the law he knew his time was about to run out. And that his plan of hammering into man that he's bound by the curse of a law that no man could keep wasn't going to work anymore on those that knew the truth and had faith in what salvation through God's grace truly means. Because Jesus Christ completely redeemed man from the curse of the law.
But sadly many are still being tricked by satan. Tricked into believing that if they don't keep the law then they're still condemned by it. The ones that aren't falling for it are the ones that know the truth and realise that "God's grace is sufficient". And sadly the ones that still feel that they have to do this or that and work their way out of the sins that Jesus already took away are still being deceived by satan and are still stuck under the bondage of the law that Jesus Christ already redeemed them from.
Christ did for man what man trying to obey the law could never do. And all the works in the world trying to keep every one of the O.T. laws of the old covenant will never save anyone. Because nobody could keep all of them. Only by God's grace through Jesus Christ can man be saved. His grace is sufficient. Our works will never be.
Thank you. I just cant seem to put words together like that. I agree 100%. God Bless You. Goodnight
