This Group on Facebook is inundated with Judaizers and Black Hebrew Israelite cult members. Do not allow these heretics to take away your freedom in Christ, a freedom found in grace through faith, NOT in obedience to the Law of Moses. The Christian is under grace and not under the Law of Moses and our obedience in sanctification is defined by our walk in the Spirit through the Law of Conscience NOT the letter (Romans 2:15). I am NOT suggesting that the abolition of the Law of Moses in the Covenant of Grace i.e. Christianity somehow negates the veracity of those moral laws given Moses but that Jesus Christ through His commandments in the Covenant of Grace actually enhanced the holiness of Law through the New Covenant established in His blood and by the Spirit. Jesus Christ established a higher order of holiness in the New Covenant as the conscience (thought life) of man was included as a legal element defining sin (Matthew 5:27-28). No longer does a man’s actions only define sin but the thought life of man, mens rea, also brings condemnation in the Covenant of Grace i.e. a higher standard of holiness than the Law of Moses. It is the conscience of man in tune with the Spirit that manifests obedience through the process of sanctification NOT arduous effort to obey a Law that only wars with the flesh but cannot bring conformity as the letter of the Law manifests only in guilt and condemnation and death (Romans 3).
The Law of God, concerning that given the Hebrew Tribes, has NOTHING to do with the Christian…NOTHING to do with sanctification or righteousness. The Gentiles were NEVER given the Law of Moses or the Commandments as these were given to the children of Israel in the Covenant of Law as the Hebrew Tribes were set-apart for God’s specific purposes and they were to be Holy as God is Holy. Jesus Christ, during His Earthly ministry, established new Commandments that supersede the Law of Moses as the Law of Moses was fulfilled in Messiah (Matthew 5:17) and passed away in its inferiority to the Law of Conscience through Christ and the indwelling Spirit.
For the sake of discussion,
What Law did Adam, Enoch, Moses, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, obey? What Laws did these Gentiles obey in order to find righteous with God, was it not the Law of Conscience (Romans 2:15)?
Concerning the Torah,
The Torah is an excellent learning tool as it articulates the holiness of God, the righteousness of God, the Torah declares and defines sin for those subject to its edicts i.e. the Hebrew Tribes and converts to Judaism under the Covenant of Law. The Torah explains man’s inability to save himself and the need for an Intercessor concerning atonement for sin but the Torah cannot save, the Torah cannot provide atonement and the Torah is NOT applicable to the Christian as the Christian is not under Law but under Grace through the Spirit (Romans 6:14). STOP telling Christians they are subject to the Law of Moses-the Commandments concerning righteousness and sanctification. The Christian is subject to the Law of Conscience through the Spirit NOT Moses. The Law of Moses has passed and is NOT applicable during the time of the Gentiles but will, once again, ceremonially find relevance among faithful Israel in the Millennial Kingdom and that specific dispensation.
The Law of Moses has faded away…
4 Such is the confidence that we have through Christ toward God. 5 Not that we are sufficient in ourselves to claim anything as coming from us, but our sufficiency is from God, 6 who has made us sufficient to be ministers of a new covenant, not of the letter but of the Spirit. For the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life.
7 Now if the ministry of death, carved in letters on stone, came with such glory that the Israelites could not gaze at Moses’ face because of its glory, which was being brought to an end, 8 will not the ministry of the Spirit have even more glory? 9 For if there was glory in the ministry of condemnation, the ministry of righteousness must far exceed it in glory. 10 Indeed, in this case, what once had glory has come to have no glory at all, because of the glory that surpasses it. 11 For if what was being brought to an end came with glory, much more will what is permanent have glory. 2 Corinthians 3:4-11
There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. For the law of the Spirit of life has set you free in Christ Jesus from the law of sin and death. For God has done what the law, weakened by the flesh, could not do. By sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and for sin, he condemned sin in the flesh, in order that the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not according to the flesh but according to the Spirit. Romans 8:1-4
