The sin of observing the law of Moses, Part six. So we're talking about the Hebrew roots movement are biblically God answers. Tell me the desire to be under the law. Do you not hear what the law says? So why was the law given to Israel? Let's let's look at some of what the Bible says about the law itself. That's very important to see what the how the Bible characterizes the law for this commandment, Deuteronomy. Now for this command, which I command thee this day, it is not hidden from the neither is it far off. See, I've said before the this day life, and good death, and evil. So when the law was given, he said it gave life or death good or evil. And that I command thee this day to love the Lord thy God to walk in his ways to keep his commandments and his statues, and his judgments, that thou may is live and multiply, and the Lord that God shall bless thee in the land, whether that goes to possess it, I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I've set before you life and death, blessings and cursings. therefore choose life, that both you and that seed may live. That's the nature of the law, there's no mercy in it. There's no forgiveness in it very plain. Here it is, do it and live, don't do it and die. That's how simple it was. Then in Ezekiel chapter 20, and I gave them my judgments and showed them my judge that gave them my statues and showed them my judgments, which if a man do, he shall even live in them, if you do the law, it'll give you life that's repeated throughout the Old Testament, I'll show you several of them. Ye shall therefore keep my statues and my judgments which if a man do, he shall live in them. In other words, the law was given as a way of obtaining eternal life. If you did it, you'd live. And I gave them my statues showed them my judgments, which if a man do he shall live in them, and testify against them, that thou mightest bring them again into unto thy law, yet they dealt proudly in hearkened not unto that commandments, but sinned against that judgment, which if a man do, he shall live in them, so there it is, again. Now we have Ezekiel chapter 20, speaking of the same thing, but the house of Israel rebelled against me in the wilderness, they walk not in my statutes, they despise my judgments, which if a man do, he shall live in them that's repeated throughout the Old Testament, it's very clear that the law was given to give life but you had to obey it. Just keeping Sabbath, keeping feast days and doing the best you can and going along and confessing your sins and going to the temple and offering sacrifice, that wouldn't do it. You had to keep the law. If you broke it need to offer sacrifice, you were damned that he had to keep the law, offering sacrifices wouldn't forgive your sins, he says that the book of Hebrews, and behold, a certain lawyer stood up and tempted him saying, here's the New Testament. Master, what shall I do to inherit eternal life? He said unto him, What is written in the world? How read is though? So Jesus throws it back on him. You're a student of the law, what does the law say? How do you get eternal life? He answered and said, Thou shall love the Lord thy God with all the heart with all that soul with all the strength with all that might, and then neighbor as thyself. And he said unto him, Thou has answered right this do And thou shalt live. So Did Jesus. offer grace to this man? Mercy? Forgiveness, no. Say anything about His coming death or resurrection or new birth coming the Holy Spirit? No. What did Jesus do? He
talked exactly like somebody would do in the 14th century. BC are the 10th century BC, or the fifth century BC. He taught just like any rabbi would, when asked, What do you do? And how do you turn like you keep the law this do And thou shalt live. You see the Judaizers say that they are worshipping like Jesus and the apostles worshiped. The only thing is Jesus was in the Old Testament. Jesus never lived in the New Testament period. When Jesus lived on the earth, the sacrifices were still in force. When he healed somebody, he said, Go and offer the sacrifice that Moses commanded blood sacrifice. If you do, like Jesus did, during his lifetime, you'll need to find an altar, start killing animals, but you'd have to have a high priest to do it. That's from the tribe of Cohen. And unless you do that, you won't be imitating Jesus Christ, because he kept the law. Whenever he healed somebody, he said, Go down all for the sacrifice. So they had to go down and go through the seventh day of cleansing. Even the Judaizers don't do that today. And they've got no excuse for not doing it if that law is still in effect. Now in Mark chapter 10, verse 17, we read, And when he was going forth in the way there will came one running and kneel to him and asked him good master, what should I do that I may inherit eternal life, different situation? Now notice the commandments. Jesus said, in answer, what should I do is I know his commandments, do not commit adultery. That's how you get eternal life. Do not kill. That's how you get eternal, I do not steal, do not bear false witness to fraud, not honor that father, mother, that's the way you get eternal life, keep the 10 commandments, and the other 611 603 keep the commandments. So why would Jesus tell them that because there was no grace, yet, there was no cross, no death, no burial, no resurrection, no ascension, no seed on the right hand of God. This was the Old Testament, the book of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John all cover the Old Testament, the last days of the Old Testament reign. The book of Acts, starts with the New Testament. Romans two, for as many as have sinned without law, shall also perish without law. And as many of you have sent in the law shall be judged by the law, for not the hearers of the law or just before God. Paul said, the doers of the law shall be justified. See, the apostle Paul, in the early stages of his reasoning in the book of Romans, says that if you do the law, you will be justified. Now, how much of the law must you do all of it? How often must you do it all the time? How many times can you break it? Not ever?
If you do, then you're a law breaker, how many times would have to lie to you for you to call me a liar? How many times would have to steal for you to call me a thief?
How many times would after murder for the government to call me a murderer? How many times must you violate the Sabbath to be a Sabbath breaker and deserving of death as as was inflicted in the Old Testament? And so if you keep the law, he said, You're obligated to keep the whole law if you keep if you're circumcised one law, you keep the whole law. Now, what are the actual results of the law? Romans chapter seven speaks of the actual results of keeping the law for I was alive without the law once Paul said, in other words, he spiritually were doing okay. But when the Commandment came, sin revived, in added, listen to this the commandment which was ordained to life, I found to be unto death. For sin, taking occasion by the commandment deceived me and by it slew me. He said, the result of the law coming into his life, probably as a young man brought death. Why? Because it revealed his sinfulness. It revealed his wickedness, his internal wickedness. So that law which he was ready to embrace, to gain eternal life, he found when he embraced it, it was his judge. It condemned Him. It faulted him, it damned him. So he died with his embrace of the law, spiritually speaking, Romans nine. What shall we say then that the Gentiles which followed not after righteousness, have attained unto righteousness, that's those who believed on Jesus Christ, even the righteousness which is a faith, but Israel which followed after the law of righteousness through the Mosaic law has not attained the law of righteousness. So they no Jew ever achieved God's righteousness. To the righteous as it takes to get to heaven through keeping the law. Paul did it. Paul kept the law so much. He said, I'm blaming as far as the law concerned. But it wasn't enough. Because though he kept it out, weirdly, within he said he discovered he was lustful, because they saw it not by faith, but as it were, by the works of the law, for they stumbled at the stumbling stone, your God as is today who seek righteousness by the works of the law, you've stumbled at the stumbling stone. The Bible tells us that in Him, we live and move and have our being. And it says that God has given us in Christ, all things that pertain to life and godliness. So I'm fine, Jesus, all sufficient. He is my salvation. He's my righteousness. He's my comfort. He's my jaw. He's all I need to worship. I don't need anything to worship, don't need any objects don't need any place. Don't need any people. Just worship I worship when asleep or worship on a dream. I worship when I'm cutting grass, I worship worship as close to the throne of God as you can get on this earth, and not just lose your mind. And I don't need any externals to do it. I don't need the law. I don't need the Sabbath. I don't need holy days or feast days. Christ is all in all, he's sufficient. Why is he not sufficient to the Judaizers? Why there's so many Christians in America who feel that they need to go out and add the law and keep it in its sterile illness? In order to please God, is Christ not enough for you? He's enough for those drunks. He's enough for the sodomites who come to him. He's enough for the murderers at the prison that I've dealt with. He's enough for the dough pads and come to Christ get born again get freed. He has been throughout the centuries enough for all people of all lands is enough for the Haven. Can you imagine going into tribal people, a manual and giving them the gospel Lord Jesus Christ, and then tell them they need to get planted in Judaism, get planted in the old culture that God never liked. Anyhow, you say God didn't produce the Israelite culture, it was a product of their times and hate tempted to bring them out of that culture. To go back and try to reestablish their culture and their language as if it were sacred, is beautiful. Romans chapter four, for if they wish of the law be errs, faces made bought, and the promise made of none effect. Remember, the promise is going back to Abraham, because the law workers wrath, that's what it does. For word no law is there's no transgression. Therefore, it is a faith that it might be by grace, to the end, the promise might be sure, to all the seeds see, to faith, not to that which only is of the law, they were the seed of faith to, but to that, which also is of the faith of Abraham, who is the father of us all. So
Romans chapter 390. Now we know that what things are the law says it said to them, they're under the law that every mouth may be stopped and all the world may become guilty before God, that's the purpose of law, to stop your mouth and make you guilty. You say, Well, we Judy, as yours, we, we use it that way to it reveals our sin to us. That's a pitiful way to discover your sin. You know what you need, you need the Holy Spirit to fill you. So that he speaks to you immediately when you sin. Because there's a sense 1000 things the Holy Spirit will point to his sin that's not covered under the Law of Moses. The Holy Spirit will reveal to you your sinfulness in ways that other people won't even believe it's sinfulness that you couldn't prove to other people that was but God told you it was and you know it to be. he uncovers attitudes and feelings that the law would never come close to. So we don't need the law, it would be cumbersome, it would be a sin, to go backward into something that God has set aside for those who died to it. He said for by the law is the knowledge of saying that's the nature of the law, Romans eight For what the law could not do. It could not do it could couldn't then it cannot now in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh, that the righteousness of God might be fulfilled in us. So the law failed. But Jesus succeeded. Why go backwards? Why go to something that is old? That is was a failure, that all that ever did only success the larva had was to make everybody guilty. And that's a great deal. That's important. But that's the only thing Excessive overhead is to make us guilty before God. So finally, the righteousness of the law will never pass away when he said not one jot or tittle pass away, he was correct. Because during the tribulation, the Jews will be confronted with a law once again, just as they were in the days ago. They will be required to keep it and they will have temple sacrifices, they will kill animals, they will keep these days, they will do what they originally did before the law and they will discover their sinfulness anew. And then they will keep the faith of Jesus Christ. But that's for them that law was given to them. That's not for the Gentiles. And it's not for a Jew today who has been born again, because he's, he's graduated to something much higher. But the laws jurisdiction has retired for something more effective. Now we're going to later go into the scripture to show you to give you the details of this, how that the law has not passed away, but I have the law only covers living people. I'm no longer alive. I'm dead. Romans chapter six, seven, and eight. Very clear on that and other passages. First Corinthians 15 Colossians visions, all speak of that reality. That's the reality the Judea hazards have never learned being so shallow in Scripture as they are. So if you'll stick with me, you will learn something that will set you free from the bondage of the law. Till next time
