The context is that we are all under the law of sin.
The Law of Sin and Death. The Law of the Spirit. The Law of Faith. It is excluded. By what kind of law? By a law of works? No, but by the law of faith. The Law of Righteousness. Paul taught that as we obeyed the Law of Faith, it produced righteousness in our lives. The Law of Christ. Meaning what? They are the same thing. To follow the law of Christ is the same as following the Law of God.. The law of Christ has to be a different law. If it is not a different law then Paul is a false teacher when he tells the uncircumcised not to seek circumcision. Only keeping the law of God.
If we have to stringently obey the Ten Commandments then the 7th Day Adventists are correct in saying we still have to have a Saturday Sabbath. But Paul instructed the Corinthians about their giving in 1 Cor. On the first day of every week, each of you is to put something aside and store it up, as he may prosper, so that there will be no collecting when I come. The Christians in the Apostles time met on Sunday not Saturday. Another argument they have is that Paul wentbto the synagogues to discuss the Gospel with the Jews.
He had to. That is when the Jews assembled. The Spiritual fulfillment of the Saturday Sabbath is Hebrews for that talks about the rest we have in God because we have the Spirit of God living in us. Paul, the Apostle, did NOT make any distinction between moral law, ceremonial law or civil law. Under the New Covenant we live by the Holy Spirit guiding us directly and through our conscience. Sorry Gordon, I have to disagree. It is not just the Seventh Day Adventists that keep the 4th commandment, but also the many Messianic congregations of Jews and gentiles.
Ex records that the Lord made it the seventh day holy. There is much evidence in the writings of the early church fathers that believers met together on the shabbat, and that they met in the synagogues.
The edicts demanding first day services are a feature of the 4th CE. Is there also a strong case for abandoning any of the other commandments?
In this day and age, should we not also abandon honouring parents and allow adultery? The whole intent of Sabbath was to pause in attempts at self-provision in a deliberate remembrance and reliance on God to be our faithful Provider, and we but minor though required participants in providing for ourselves. His people were to TrusT Him to provide enough beforehand to carry them during those years — and so also to provide enough in 6 days to suffice for 7th. There are ways we can observe Sabbaths every day, or week. This is my Personal way to observe the Sabbath because it observes what I believe God had in mind behind the commandment.
Consider it valid or not as you will; I compel no one to do the same. Hi, there is nothing healthier than people discussing and digging into Gods word seeking For His Truth. Have you considered the context of Romans 14 and the observance of days. The whole chapter is about food and that is food defined by scripture as food. It has nothing to do with keeping the Sabbath or not. There is plenty of evidence in the Bible that the first day of the week is very special. Look a little more closely and see what happened on that day. How about the commandment to circumcise every male child in the 8th day.
The Sabbath on the seventh day goes back even further than Ex If you do the research you will find Constantine I changed it in AD. He worshiped the sun, so thus Sunday. After that, a pope in the Catholic church accepted it as the day of rest for Christians. That would have been a pretty big change for the people, and would have needed some explanation. Yes David. It seems many forget that the day of rest Sabbath was not established with and for the Jewish nation…it was designated in creation week and reaffirmed with the calling of the Jewish nation as His chosen people…reminding them to keep it holy, for two reasons, He created and He delivered them from Egypt.
There are those who would suggest that with the dawn of the christian church a new Sabbath was designated, but there is certainly no edict in scripture that this should be done, nor does it indicate that because Jesus is our rest that the day of rest is no longer to be observed. There is no doubt in my mind that if God saw it important to set aside and emphasise, remember the Sabbath day, if there was to be a change or setting aside for a new day, it would have been equally emphasised and stated. He is our Passover Lamb, sacrificed for our sins so that we might be forgiven and reconciled to God, the Father.
He also at times is referring to the oral commands as laid down by the Pharisees known as the Talmud which were the traditions of men. The old system replaced by the new system of law. I think most people would find the comparison between Deuteronomy , and Hebrews rather eye opening. In Deuteronomy the 10 commandments are described as the covenant on stone, aka the first covenant. We believers are clearly under the New covenant.
Does this mean we can run around killing people, lying and committing adultery? Of course not. A pretty cursory reading let alone a serious study!
The former things were written for our instruction Rom. We can accept the covenant He offers us in Christ, or we can reject it. We are not offered the authority to rewrite it. If church leaders would simply study the change in covenants so clearly stated in Hebrews 8, a great deal of religious confusion would vanish. Chris, The New Covenant is referenced in Ezek. By this we may know that we are in him: 6 whoever says he abides in him ought to walk in the same way in which he walked.
What commandments? How did Jesus walk? He kept the Torah. He observed the Sabbath and kept it holy. If you want the true meanings look at the Hebrew over the Greek, Remember, Yeshua was born Jewish, he went to Temple or synagogue, he partook in all the feast. Consider the original roots of the faith. Rome gave the title of christian to believer, search true history. Hebrews In that he saith, A new covenant, he hath made the first old.
So what have we learned today? Gord, the idea that living within Torah in this day and age means we should be offering animal sacrifices is a false notion, because according to the very Torah, the act of offering animal sacrifices is forbidden away the physical temple within Jerusalem. God says to follow his commands and so does His Son Yeshua our Messiah. The subject is not the doing away with the law or its establishment, but rather, the change of the location of the law from tables of stone to the tables of the heart. We are in no way obligated to follow any of the mosaic law.
Now that which decayeth and waxeth old is ready to vanish away. Romans For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace. Romans What then? God forbid. Donald, I used to believe this, but the Lord has recently opened my eyes. The great mystery that Paul says has been revealed is the wall or barrier separating Jew from Gentile has been removed, and now there is one body and one spirit, and that means one law for Jew and Gentile as well. For they preach, but do not practice. That includes you and me and everyone else. Dale, When reading the Bible one must always determine the verses are being directed to.
Matthew is being spoken to the Jews only.
Because no one can comply with the law those again-see Hebrews attempting to preach the law are following Moses, the law giver; however, that teaching is countered by verses like Galatians Christ is become of no effect unto you, whosoever of you are justified by the law; ye are fallen from grace. I stand firm on my original comment.
No,, I used to believe the same thing.. If you adopt a child he follows the rules of your house. Not the house he came from. They were Gods laws. The way he wants HIS people to live. Because, he said he would write his laws on our hearts and minds. That IS the new covenant. Remember how we always say that we are NOT saved by works, but after we come to faith in Jesus, good works should be in evidence in our lives, produced my the Holy Spirit. The Greek for commandments is the same as used by the Lord when He is giving the Sermon on the Mount and says, Matthew ESV 19 Therefore whoever relaxes one of the least of these commandments and teaches others to do the same will be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever does them and teaches them will be called great in the kingdom of heaven.
Jesus is speaking here of the commandments the Torah and He says that whoever does these commandments the Torah and teaches them will be called great in the Kingdom of Heaven. Walking in and keeping the Torah begins with keeping the Sabbath Day as holy set apart.
This was my first step in understanding that the Torah is for us today not as a means of salvation, but to show our love for God for God by keeping His commandments instructions. It was changed by the Catholic Church, and it is a tradition of man, not a command of God. Jesus kept the Sabbath. The Apostle Paul and the other apostles observed the Sabbath and the Torah. Paul says in Romans ESV 12 So the law is holy, and the commandment is holy and righteous and good. All scriptural doctrines have their foundation in the Old Testament scriptures. When Paul says to Timothy that the scriptures made him wise unto salvation, he was referring to the Old Testament scriptures Tenakh.
Dale, 1 Billy Graham taught Decision Theology but since everyone ever born is dead in sin, Ephesians , no one will seek god, Romans There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God. This is why Christ came — to fulfil the law through his blood and resurrection. None thinks they will be saved by following the law. Or, if they do, they are misled.
Salvation was always by faith. Think of Abraham, he beloved God and it was accounted to him as righteousness. Gods laws are eternal. I follow them because he wrote his law on my heart and mind. New covenant. I would have to disagree to the blog writer based on several verses as indicated below. Its sbout Jesus been the Righteousness that we need to abide in. They refers to the Jews people.
They did not submitted to the righteousness that comes from God. He who believes in Christ as Lord and Saivour has already the Righteousness that exceeds the scribes and Pharisees. Christ did not come to abolish the law but to show us how to live it. We never ever keep the law to be saved. We keep it because we are saved. The new covenant is Him writing his law on our hearts and minds. What law? Well since there was no New Testament, it has to be his law written in the Torah.
Messiah came to empower us to live in love, which is his law. Not abolish the law! Whatsoever you would that men do unto you, do you also unto them. For this is the law and the prophets. In other words, this is what the whole bible is about. Marcus, These are Gentile converts that Paul is talking to in Galatians They used to serve other gods.
Now they know the true God. I am afraid for you, lest I have labored for you in vain. How can these HOLY days be considered bondage? Eaxcatly right! But no.. Well said! God never changes, He is eternal both in His existence and in His standards and laws, He does not change His mind. The law was set, not only for an iron-age people but for all mankind for always, as the ideal for life. Like our civil law today, breaking the law has a penalty, a price to pay; when we break the law, we are under the law, after we pay the fine or serve the sentence we are no longer under the law.
If Jesus had abolished the law, there would no longer be any sin, but clearly there is sin, otherwise we would not need a Saviour. We all sin and fall short, but fortunately Jesus paid the price, so we should try to obey the law out of love for Him. This whole debate makes me very sad, to see believers arguing over a distinction without a difference.
Instead of debating nuances of the minimum standards for salvation, why not look at what Christ himself said about who is saved? Well, in v3 — 10, you see the character of a Christian. In v21 — 30, he told us that not only does the law apply, but even more stringently, we are judged by what is in our hearts. Murder is against the law, but for His followers, hatred is the same as murder, and lust is as bad as adultery. In Luke , we were admonished to treat others as we would have them treat us. The law says to stone an adulterer. Jesus raised the standards higher than the law ever required.
The new standard is to be like Him, not even sinning in our hearts. Those of us who love Him and meet that standard are his followers and will be with him in Heaven. So, we are all condemned by the law of perfection and the sins in our own hearts. And, under the law, there can be no forgiveness without the shedding of blood Heb Fortunately for us, God loves us so much that he shed the blood of the perfect Lamb, his Son, as the atonement required by the law, in order to buy our redemption.
Who among us would do nothing or only the minimum to thank the One who killed His own Son to purchase our freedom for the crimes we committed against Him? Thus, arguing about the minimum standards we must comply with in order to get into heaven cheapens the gift. We need to be looking at how much more we can do to follow the laws of the one whom we offended but who paid for our transgressions. We did nothing to earn our freedom. They all apply, and we have broken all of them so we deserve nothing but death. If we believe, we are contrite and we do not boast or waste our time arguing about how little we can do to get away with our sins.
We strive for the best, not the minimum. Thanks for that brother! Sermon on the MountMatt 5,6,7. What if Jesus meant every word he said? Thank you for that, brother. Well said. God has always worked through covenants. Wow…moved to tears by some of the comments here. True righteousness is not just doing the physical acts of the law…the Pharisees did that. The big picture point of the article is correct it IS about the heart and attitude and God living in us! Jesus had NO new laws. He kept the Torah implicitly…otherwise he would have been considered a sinner, and John says we should follow his example.
This sounds very covanental. We are in no way obligated to follow any of the mosaic law. James says. He does not split it into three. Daniel Frederico, there is a flaw in your argument. The law is in the singular, so it is a complete package. Remember a text out of context in light of its co-text becomes a pre-text. If we live according to 1 Cor. Remember what Paul said in Romans We can be saved — but disobedient. Yeshua spoke of reward for faithful to what? And weeping and gnashing of teeth. Matthew The claim that the law was done away with or made unnecessary is similar to one spoken by another group a few years back.
Act — Act but they have been informed about you that you teach all the Jews who are among the Gentiles to forsake Moses, saying that they ought not to circumcise their children nor to walk according to the customs… …do what we tell you… …that all may know that those things of which they were informed concerning you are nothing, but that you yourself also walk orderly and keep the law. Paul was already aware that pain and suffering awaited him in Jerusalem, yet he was bold enough to go there anyway. He also did not hold back in rebuking Peter when he found him being swayed by those under the law, that is converts to Judaism.
My admittedly rhetorical questions are: How on earth did the church come to take the side of the false witnesses, as well as an early Antichrist Antiochus IV? What will be the law of the land when Yeshua returns? Torah written not rabbinic oral law! This will be similar to a Jew gaining priest like status in the temple during the period of a Nazarite vow. Does that also refer to the fourth commandment, which requires the observance of the seventh day as the Sabbath? In my experience, most Christians today side-skirt this issue, or use human reasoning to explain why they do it different that what is specifically written in Exodus Contrary to the opinions expressed regarding Jewish observance of the different laws, how ridged or lax the laws were to be walked out depended on how much a recognised leader bound or loosed commandments for those under their care.
I had not been perfect, nor could I ever be. In this sermon Jesus gave from the mount, he said to those listening:. He came to say that they were as active as ever! More than this, Jesus preaches that the commandments require more of me than I originally thought.
More than avoiding a specific behavior, like murder, Christ reveals that perfect obedience to the law also requires one to abstain from evil thoughts against a brother! Because God is faithful… Why should you not lie? Because God is truth. And it follows, then, to fulfill the law means to be God himself. Be holy, for I am holy.
God commands holiness. But never forget this wonderful truth about our God: God gives what he commands. Believe in me. Praise Jesus, that he did not leave us after the Sermon on the Mount. God did not come down to earth only to show us our sin, though this was part of his mission.
Jesus took on human flesh to pay the penalty for those sins. Jesus came so we may be reconciled back to God.
