The cross of Christ and therefore the Grace of God remains an Absolute mystery to most who bear His name and as a result the world writhes in anguish with the Band-Aid of religion being little help for the spiritually hemorrhaging artery they face which causes death long before the physical heart ever stops!
“Surely you have heard about the administration of God’s grace that was given to me for you, that is, the mystery made known to me by revelation, as I have already written briefly. In reading this, then, you will be able to understand my insight into the mystery of Christ, which was not made known to people in other generations as it has now been revealed by the Spirit to God’s holy apostles and prophets.” – Ephesians 3:2-5
Other generations had the law to include this one – so why Jesus?
Other generations had the rule book albeit on scrolls – so why Jesus?
Jesus did NOT come to abolish the law but to fulfill it! So what IS the BIG WIN – Here?
The law was initially created so that God could feed the children of Israel’s ego and show them Who He Is! In Exodus the children of Israel plainly said, “We will do everything the LORD has said.” – Exodus 19 – a short side note – in my weakness He Is strong and if I have learned Anything about God outside of His Love, it’s this, HE IS VERY STRONG!
The mystery of Christ is this – ALL the law was fulfilled by Him and if He now lives in you – its fulfilled in you as well! Now Go and Love one another as He Loved us even if that means Loving unto death!
The mystery of Christ is this – You no longer need the law! It’s finished with its purpose once He lives inside you! All the Righteousness I Need has been and Is living in my heart in the form of Jesus!
“But the law wasn’t abolished” – this is Very true! The law is good for those who are under it as that points my way to Jesus and my need for His Righteousness Alone to save me!
Welcome to the “mystery of Christ” – “It is for Freedom sake that Christ has set you Free!”
