Conscious and Conscience
Unmerited means unearned. It is all about Jesus. It has nothing to do with what we have done. God wants the gospel that Jesus died, to be revealed to all over the world. The gospel is not only for sinners but for believers as well. Is a success of our marriage and every areas of our lives! Save us from diseases, addictions.
When we come to God, conscience makes us aware of ourselves, the sins in our flesh.
When we eat from the tree of knowledge, our conscience is opened. God wants our eyes not to be opened by tree of knowledge. Conscience tells us what is right and wrong, but not God. Conscience allows many things that God does not allow. Conscience is not a safe guide, unless we are born again.
God wants our eyes to be opened by the Tree of Life! When the eyes are opened by the wrong tree, Adam and Eve had the expectation of punishments and afraid of walking with God. Before eating from the wrong tree, they were walking with God.
Faith makes us conscious of God’s love. Conscience makes us conscious of self and sin.
Two questions to address today –
1. One of the biggest challenge of the gospel of grace in arguments is – we are not under law for justification, but we are under law for our walk and holiness.
(Our judgement is at the cross. But if the devil is able to make u think there is judgement for us, there is untold danger.)- fearful looking forward of judgement.
The wrath of God comes on the children of disobedience and not on His children.
God wanna portrait Himself as a Saviour.
God is restoring message of that was originated from Apostle Paul which he received from Heaven.
2. When Paul said do not go back to the law, he is referring to ceremonial law??
We are going to answer these two questions.
Released from the Law
Or do you not know, brothers —for I am speaking to those who know the law—that the law is binding on a person only as long as he lives? For a married woman is bound by law to her husband while he lives, but if her husband dies she is released from the law of marriage.
There are many reasons why Jesus died.
For sin will have no dominion over you, since you are not under law but under grace.
Accordingly, she will be called an adulteress if she lives with another man while her husband is alive. But if her husband dies, she is free from that law, and if she marries another man she is not an adulteress.
They are so bound by Moses, but he is a servant. Grace and truth came by Jesus and Jesus is a Son and Son abides in the house forever. Servant does not.
We cannot be under the law and not under the curse. When one is under the law, one will be under the curse when one sin.
So then, those who are of faith are blessed along with Abraham, the man of faith.
The Righteous Shall Live by Faith
For all who rely on works of the law are under a curse; for it is written, “Cursed be everyone who does not abide by all things written in the Book of the Law, and do them.”
There is only one way for believers to be under the curse again. Is to go under the law again. The law demands 100%. The law is holy and righteous. It is not made into manageable law.
Curse means empower to fail.
Grace means empower to succeed!
High regards for the law. The law will not give u holiness but it will show u what u really are. Law will manifest sin that is already there. It will not produce sin.
When commandments came (on the side, not the main), that the offends might abound.
God Himself will not directly be involved with the law. It was given through a mediator, Moses.
Promise and grace goes together. Even when people was under law, God has been giving promises to His people.
God’s requirement of man remains the same.
Mr Law cannot die. The law cannot but to condemn. There is no such thing as relax law.
If the law cannot die, she can die.
Dead to the law, to the body of Christ.
Out of been a slave to sonship! To whom we cry ABBA ABBA!
Servant obedience and son obedience is different.
A son running a restaurant given by his father, the spirit of obedience is different from the servant obedience.
Jesus is sinless. The law punished or curse Christ for our sin on the cross. When the law curse you to death, the law cannot go beyond that anymore. What Jesus did was for me. When Jesus died we died. When He rose, we are risen with Him.
We are risen! Risen is better than living. Every believers must live life as if death is behind us because it is! We are risen!
Jesus conquered death. Death, diseases are behind us. Our death was at the cross!
Jesus took our places and we were there at the cross!
The law cannot execute anymore again. We have died and risen!
Grace makes our hearts generous.
Not been under law means we are living high and fruits of grace.
10 commandments is not the transcript of God’s mind! His mind is more than what you think He has!
10 commandments is like the mirror. It shows! The mirror is inflexibly truth!
Mirror cannot cleanse away our blemish.
Man does not see his need for Saviour. They are trying to find some good in themselves.
Ruth married a man called sick. The man died. She followed her mother in law. Her mother in law asked her to go back to her god and her people. But Ruth did not want to. She follows her mother in law and her God.
Before God gave the Son, He gave the servant.
The law has no longer the right to walk over us. Boaz took over and married Ruth.
She is a picture of church redeemed!
The law cannot bend to redeem us.
When one broke one law, all are broken.
Jesus is my Goodness. He is my Identity!
Likewise, my brothers, you also have died to the law through the body of Christ, so that you may belong to another, to him who has been raised from the dead, in order that we may bear fruit for God.
Bearing fruit to God!
When we are dead to the law, it means we have a new “husband” the One who rose from the dead!
It is nothing of self, but all of Jesus. The grace of God will teach us!
Our righteousness is a gift from God! We did not take the exam, but we got a A plus! The reaction is, THANK YOU. We goes on to live a life of thanksgiving and not gossip about the One who gives us the gift.
The result is about bearing fruits.
God’s way are not hard. God invented sex. The devil pervert sex.
Enjoy our Husband Jesus. Love and think of Him all the times and fruits is always supernaturally natural!
Question 2 on ceremonial law will be addressed at part 2 of the sermon.
Sarah was behind the tent. She laughed in her heart when she heard this time next year she is going to have a son. She said shall i have pleasure, my lord been old also. She did not say shall i get pregnant. She said shall i have pleasure? Enjoy His love, have pleasure in knowing Him!
Have pleasure and the result is a baby! (The fruit) it will be effortless.
For while we were living in the flesh, our sinful passions, aroused by the law, were at work in our members to bear fruit for death.
The law bear fruits to death. It is about rule of life.
But now we are released from the law, having died to that which held us captive, so that we serve in the new way of the Spirit and not in the old way of the written code.
The Law and Sin
What then shall we say? That the law is sin? By no means! Yet if it had not been for the law, I would not have known sin. For I would not have known what it is to covet if the law had not said, “You shall not covet.”
The context is clear! This is about the 10 commandments law and not ceremonial law!
There are so much more to share but time is up soon.
But sin, seizing an opportunity through the commandment, produced in me all kinds of covetousness. For apart from the law, sin lies dead.
Sin is behind us. But maintain the faith position, sin and curse is behind us!
How shall we who are dead? We are immersed in Christ’s dead and risen!!
Something princely and princessly who walk in the spirit.
Royalty has come into our hearts!
