777 Challenge – Day 7 – Question 7
I grew up being force fed that being Christ-like and law-like were one in the same – when I met Jesus I found that they were Very different! PRAISE GOD – His Mercy never ceases and the bottom of the barrel or in my case under the barrel was the Garden of Grace upon which I now teach, preach and share with a lost and dying world including many church members!
How can I say many church members? Because while 90% of churches will agree we are no longer under law but under Grace, 99.9999999% teach just the opposite almost every Sunday! And the suicides roll on in! And satan himself is dancing with a grin!
Don’t misunderstand me here – it’s Not The Church that I have any problem with – it’s the 99.999999% of places calling themselves churches while weaving hangman nooses from the pulpit of pride thinking that they have a lock on God all the while missing the very message of The Gospel of Jesus Christ!
With this in mind here is the last question in our study that I hope, pray and beg you to consider being just the start of a remarkable lifetime journey!
WHAT ARE THE CONSEQUESNCES AND WARNINGS OF GOING BACK UNDER THE LAW?
Galatians 3:2,3,10- “…did you receive the Spirit by the works of the law, or by having faith? Are you so foolish? Having begun by the Spirit, are you now being perfected by the flesh?…For as many as are under the works of the law are under a curse.”
Galatians 5:1-4- “… keep standing firm and do not be subject again to the yoke of slavery…if you receive circumcision, Christ will be of no benefit to you….every man who receives circumcision,… is under obligation to keep the whole law. You have been severed from Christ, you who are seeking to be justified by law; you have fallen from grace.”
Philippians 3:8,9- “… I count all things to be loss…in order that I may gain Christ, and may be found in Him, not having a righteousness of my own derived from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ.”
Colossians 2:16-18,20-23- “let no one act as your judge in regard to food or drink or in respect to …a Sabbath day- things which are a mere shadow of what is to come; but the substance belongs to Christ…why act as if you were living in the world, do not submit yourself to decrees, such as , “Do not handle, do not taste, do not touch!” (which all refer to things destined to perish with the using) – in accordance with the commandments and teachings of men? These are matters which have, to be sure, the appearance of wisdom in self made religion and self-abasement and severe treatment of the body, but are of no value against fleshly indulgence.”
