“The Law of God – 202”…Blog, Part TWO.

“The Law of God – 202”…Blog, Part TWO.

In my starting discussion… of the “Law of God” I found that due to, length constraints, I was not able to do proper justice to my explanation of this topic. It was just to get your and my ‘thinking’ started. I will continue this periodically trying to tie-together the… “Truth of the Word of God”… with other verses in the Bible. Please allow me to share these… “Core Truths”… with you again?

There are about… Over ‘1100’… Old & New Testament… “Laws = Testimonies = Precepts =

Commandments = Judgments = and the like”… Contained in the Word of God. All this is the… “Law of God”… which can be summed up in the Term… “The Word of God!”

You see, “ALL” these… are for us ‘to know’ the… “Mind of God”… so that we may live in the …“Fear of God”…and… “Through and In”… “The Love of God”. The “Love of God” = The “Word of God} will either… Drive You… “To God”… or… ‘Away from God’… depending… “ONLY” on your response to it.

(Hebrews 4:12-13) For the Word of God = is living and powerful = and = sharper than any two-edged sword, = piercing even to = the dividing apart = of soul = and = spirit, = and = of the joints and marrow, = and = is a discerner of = the thoughts = and = intents = of the heart.
(Heb 4:13) Neither = is there any creature = that is not manifest = in His sight, = but = all things are = naked = and = opened = to the eyes of Him [GOD] = with Whom = we have to do.

First allow me to say… that the “Word of God is Living!” It is ‘NOT’… as a novel that a man would write. It is ‘NOT’… some ‘work of fiction’ as some would say, ‘mockingly’. It is Alive… ‘Only’ to those that have been… “Born Again”… by the Holy Spirit of God. Only those that… hunger for Truth… will continue to seek… “God’s Truth and Wisdom”, in its pages. It will drive those who are seeking God… ‘To look for Him’… in “His Word”.

(1Corinthinas 2:12-13-14) Now, = we = have not received = the spirit of the world = but = The Spirit = Who comes from God, = so that we can understand = the things = that were = freely given = to us = by God.
(1Cor 2:13) We don't speak about = these things = in words = taught us by human wisdom, = but = in words = taught by The Spirit [Of GOD], = as we explain = spiritual things = to = spiritual people.
(1Cor 2:14) A person = who isn't spiritual = doesn't accept = the things = of God's Spirit, = for they are = nonsense = to him. = He can't = understand them = because = they are spiritually evaluated.

Before I became… “Born Again” by the Holy Spirit of God… I had Religion. The Bible was of no interest to me. Matter of Fact… it bothered me… that people quoted its verses. My religion was good enough for me, why then did I need the Bible? It was because I was “Spiritually Bind”… and the words of the Bible… were simply foolishness to me… as the above verse says.

(2Corinthains 4:3-to-7) So if = our gospel = is veiled, = it is veiled = to those = who are dying.
(2Cor 4:4) In their case, = the god of this world [Satan] = has blinded = the minds = of those = who do not believe = to keep them from seeing = the light = of the glorious gospel = of Christ, = Who is = the image of God.
(2Cor 4:5) For we = do not = preach ourselves = but = Jesus Christ as Lord, = and = ourselves as merely = your servants = for Jesus' sake.
(2Cor 4:6) For God, = Who said, = "Let light shine out of darkness," = has shined in = our hearts = to give us = the light = of the knowledge = of God's glory = in the face of = Jesus Christ.
(2Cor 4:7) But we have = this treasure [God’s Holy Spirit] = in clay jars [our earthly bodies] = to show that = its extraordinary power = comes from God = and = not from us. [Our human effort]

Those that are really…“Born Again”… do not live by their own power and their own goodness. It is the Holy Spirit of God… living out the Life of God… in our mortal bodies… by His Power! If there is any Truth and Goodness in me… it is Only Christ in me… and… None of my own power. Many do good works to others… to get the glory ‘to themselves and for themselves’. The Glory… is for God working in us… and not… the glory for ourselves. No merit badges for us… as the “Boy Scouts” earn merit badges!

IF the Word of God… is “Not Real”… THEN... Why do so many “Hate”… what it says? You can’t ‘Hate’ a “Pink Elephant’… because in reality, there is… ‘No Such Thing!’ Satan working in the minds and hearts of those that are not… ‘Born Again’… causes You… to Hate the Word of God! Say it isn’t So? Do you Love God…? If you do… Then… you will Love His Word! Your reality is ‘simply demonstrated’… in your actions.

(Romans 10:9-10) If you = declare with your mouth = that Jesus is Lord [Savior], = and = believe = in your heart = that God raised Him [Jesus] = from the dead, = you will = be saved.
(Rom 10:10) For a person = believes = with his heart = and = is justified, = and = a person declares = with his mouth = and = is saved.

Can it really be that Simple…? In order for GOD to be just and righteous He could not make it Complex. If He did, only the Complex… would come to God. The simplicity of the Gospel… is so that All could understand it. Why do we need to know about what God said? Simply because the… “Enemy of our Souls = Satan”… would keep us blinded to… the Goodness of God!

GOD gave us His Word… so that mankind would know how to live. It also tells us what is… “Right” and what is Wrong!” Killing, Adultery, Stealing, and Lying… will affect ‘each and every’ one of us. None of Us… want those things in our lives. They are the “Broken Laws of God” that ruin… “Lives and Life”. Almost “ALL” will agree, ‘Worldwide’… as “NONE” want ‘these’ done to them! That is part of the “Word of God”… the “Law of God!”

(Matthew 5:27-28) "You have heard that it was said, = 'You must Not = commit Adultery.'
(Matt 5:28) But I [Jesus] = say to you, = anyone who stares at a woman = with lust for her = has already = committed Adultery = with her = in his heart.

(Matthew 5:21-22) You have heard that it was said to the ancients, = "You shall not Kill" --and, = "Whoever shall Kill = shall be liable to the judgment."
(Matt 5:22) But I [Jesus] = say to you = that whoever = is Angry with his brother = without a cause = shall be liable to the judgment. = And whoever shall say to his brother, = Raca, shall be liable to the Sanhedrin; = but whoever shall say, = Fool! shall be liable = to be thrown into the fire of hell.

Each of us… has broken the… ‘Law of God’… in our ‘Hearts’. Some have gone on… to do it physically. There are ‘NONE’… that have Kept… the “Law of God”… in their hearts in all of History! We have broken… “The Law of God = The Word of God”… and now… we need a Savior… as we “Cannot save ourselves!”

All of us… ‘Without Exception’… have broken the “Law of God”… the “Word of God!” We daily continue to… “Add to our Sin Account”… those sins we do by ‘Commission’ and those by ‘Omission!’ Like money in the Bank… we each have ‘accounts with growing interest compounded’… before God… Who will judge ‘US’. Where do we go with those accounts? We pay ‘Now’… and we pay… “Eternally!”

(Ecclesiastes 12:13-14) Let ‘US’ hear = the conclusion = of the whole matter. = “Fear God”, = and = Keep, “His Commandments”. = For this is = the whole duty = of man.
(Eccl 12:14) For God = shall bring = every work = into judgment, = with = every secret thing, = whether = it is Good, = or = whether Evil.

Nothing is Hidden from GOD…! Knowing this and understanding that the “Love of God” is given to us… ‘Freely by God’… “What Then”… is keeping “YOU”… from coming to GOD… His for Salvation and Cleansing from… Your… “Sins/Sin”…? God Loves US… and knew that… “No Man or Woman”… could keep the Law of God! Christ Jesus came as Our Savior without cost to us!

“Not, to ‘Decide’… is simply… ‘To Decide’…!”

What more can I say…?
God, the God of the Bible knows everything about You! Your heart, your thoughts and your mind. Nothing is hidden from Him! He has offered you… “Salvation” through the ‘Finished Work’ of Christ! When Jesus, on the cross said… “It is Finished”… He Christ… paid for All… Sins/Sin… Only for those… that would come to Him… on His Terms! One cannot be good enough in themselves… “To please the Righteous requirements of the Law of God!”

Where do you GO… from here ,after reading this? Simply speak to God on your own, tell Him that you have Broken… “His Law and His Word!” Tell Him… that you are Trusting Him… that “Christ Jesus”… paid for Your “Sin’s/Sin”. Confess to Him… that there is… ‘No goodness’… in you and that You believe that HE… God… Raised Jesus from the Dead… to pay for… “Your Sins/Sin!”

He already knows… ‘ALL’… about your ‘heart’ and ‘your life’. He has offered to ‘You’… “His gift of Salvation in Christ Jesus!” Simply tell Him… what is in your heart and ask Him to be your God!

(Luke 18:13-14) "But = the tax collector = stood at a distance = and = would not even look up to heaven. = Instead, = he continued to beat his chest = and said, = 'O God, = be merciful to me, = the sinner that I am!' [That we ALL are]
(Luke 18:14) I [Jesus] = tell you, = this man, = rather than the other, = went down to his home = justified. = For everyone who exalts himself [Before GOD] = will be humbled [By GOD], = but = the person = who humbles himself [Before GOD] = will be exalted [By GOD]."
