Preparing The Bride of Messiah for Our Bridegroom's Return

The Law Of Sin And Death

1 Corinthians 7:39 (NKJV)
1Co 7:39  A wife is bound by law as long as her husband lives; but if her husband dies, she is at liberty to be married to whom she wishes, only in the Lord.

The Law that the wife is free from is the Law of God concerning adultery. If her husband dies she is free to marry another. Paul wrote that as an example.

When we accept Jesus as our savior we are no longer married to the "Law of Sin and Death" which means we are saved by grace and despite our sins, we will not pay the penalty of Death because of our sin! We go to Heaven Jesus had to die for His Spirit to come into us as we believe in His death and resurrection. When we accept Jesus as are the savior we are no longer married to sin because sin leads to our eternal death. separated from God forever. So sin no longer has a hold on us. This is the salvation we have in Yeshua This does not mean we are free from the Law of God in general!

Jesus said:
Jn 14:15 "If you love Me, keep My commandments.
16 And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever--
17 the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you.
18 I will not leave you orphans; I will come to you.
19 "A little while longer and the world will see Me no more, but you will see Me. Because I live, you will live also.
20 At that day you will know that I am in My Father, and you in Me, and I in you.
21 He who has My commandments and keeps them, it is he who loves Me. And he who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and manifest Myself to him."

Jn 14:23 Jesus answered and said to him, "If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our home with him.
24 He who does not love Me does not keep My words; and the word which you hear is not Mine but the Father's who sent Me.
25 "These things I have spoken to you while being present with you.
26 But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you.

Mk 1:8 I indeed baptized you with water, but He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit."

Yeshua (Jesus) did not come to change His fathers Law but to obey them so he could be that sinless sacrifice to pay for our sins. Sin is lawlessness. In (John 15) Yeshua goes on to talk about His commandments. Where did Jesus Commandments come from? His Father the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Jesus does not come to do away with Gods Law and make news ones of His own.

Christians have mistaken the Law of "Sin and Death" as the whole Law of God. We must not teach that we are no longer under the Law of God (God's INSTRUCTIONS) We still must obey him. He is the Word of God so we must obey the whole Word of God. In our flesh this is impossible!!!! But with through Messiah, all things are possible!

Our salvation is based on John 3:16 that is salvation. Our Salvation is the beginning of our walk with God. Our obedience to God does not determine our salvation in any way shape or form. The word is very plain that we are saved by grace through faith not by works lest anyone should boast. But God does desire obedience from us and He gave his son and The HOLY SPIRIT to help us do that. Our Boast should be that through Messiah and His Spirit I walk in obedience to God. This was and is God's Mission for Mankind His creation to be like Him.

1Jn 2:3 Now by this we know that we know Him, if we keep His commandments.
4 He who says, "I know Him," and does not keep His commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.
5 But whoever keeps His word, truly the love of God is perfected in him. By this we know that we are in Him.
6 He who says he abides in Him ought himself also to walk just as He walked.

The expectation of obeying God commands are still there but by His Holy Spirit we are able to obey all of Gods Commands. We cannot confuse obeying God with our salvation that will lead to bondage.

You have been set free. The law of God is a tutor to reveal we have sinned. The Law does not have the power to save anyone only by Yeshua can we be saved. We must daily work out our salvation by believing every day that Yeshua's death and resurrection have saved us despite our sinfulness and our goal should be to abide in the Lord so he will abide in us by His Holy Spirit to help us not sin again. Sin has no more dominion over us. Sin is no longer our Master but God is our Master as long as we go through Yeshua. Sin is no longer our Husband it died on the cross when Yeshua defeated it and killed it. So when we believe in Messiah and what he did. The Law of Sin and Death our husband of the flesh DIED which freed us from its authority over us. When we abide in Yeshua we walk in the Spirit and betrothed to Him. Then we have Power over sin in our Lives and are able to obey God through faith in His Son.
