Law Keeper confused INRE to Jews, the Saints, the Kingdom…a discussion

Law Keeper is confused concerning Jews, the Saints, access to the Kingdom, a discussion.

Law Keeper stated: “WHO ARE GOD’S SAINTS?(The Saints are the righteous and get to go to heaven) So if the law is only for the jews and only commandment keepers (law keepers) go to heaven then that leaves out all gentiles.Because only the SAINTS ARE TAKEN to heaven. Right?”

Christian response,

Commandment keepers don’t go to Heaven (Romans 3:20) because no one keeps the Commandments in perfection which is required by Law in order for righteousness (a right standing with God) to be attained through same (James 2:10; Galatians 3:10); therefore, all of mankind is condemned by Law (Romans 3:20), both Jew and Gentile. If keeping the Commandments were possible, Jesus would not have needed to suffer and die for our sin (Galatians 2:21). Jesus is the perfect embodiment of LAW and its fulfillment (Matthew 5:17) and the one who trusts in Him, alone, finds grace (unmerited favor-a gift) from the condemnation of Law because the Law is powerless to save due to our sin-nature (Romans 7 & 8); therefore, Jesus kept the Law for you and for me and offers us His perfection, His righteousness, imputed into and over our life if we will trust in Him as our God who died to pay our sin-debt (2 Corinthians 5:21; John 3:16-18). There is no special “salvation” or dispensation for the Jew concerning righteousness; without Jesus as God and Messiah, the Jew will die in Hell just as the Gentile (Romans 3:23; John 14:6; John 8:24).

Righteousness (a right standing with God) is “imputed” to the one who believes in Jesus as God, Messiah (1 Corinthians 1:30). The Law could never impart righteousness and this is the eternal and fatal error of the Jew…they trust in, covet, boast in a Law that could never save them from sin (Romans 9:32) while simultaneously denying their Messiah who died for them; therefore, Isaiah and Paul, by inspiration of the Holy Spirit, proclaim that only a remnant of the Jews will be saved and that primarily in the last days (Isaiah 10:22; Romans 9:27). Israel’s children have condemned themselves to death in Hell for having murdered their Messiah, demanded that His blood be upon them and their children; this is the blood curse concerning Israel (Matthew 27:25; Isaiah 10:22; Romans 9:27). Jew, Gentile, male, female, slave, free, are welcomed into the family of God to receive eternal life IF they will humble themselves before the Father, repent of their sin and trust in Jesus Christ as God and Messiah who paid their sin-debt for them at the Crucifixion. God is not a respecter of persons (Galatians 3:28; Acts 10:34); therefore, if you reject Jesus as your God and Messiah in and over your life, you will die the “second death” in Hell as nothing impure will be permitted to enter the Kingdom of God (John 14:6; John 8:24; Revelation 20:11-15; Revelation 21:27).

The “Saints” are the ones who do the Father’s will; that is, they believe in the One the Father has sent to die for the sins of the whole World, Jesus Christ the Righteous (John 6:29). Sainthood is not imparted by race, religion, creed, but only by grace (unmerited favor) through faith (trusting – believing) that Jesus Christ is God who died to pay your sin-debt and receiving the Holy Spirit as the Seal and Guarantor of the New Covenant relationship with the Father imputed into and over your life, forever (Ephesians 1:13-14).

So God did what the law could not do. He sent his own Son in a body like the bodies we sinners have. And in that body God declared an end to sin’s control over us by giving his Son as a sacrifice for our sins. 4 He did this so that the just requirement of the law would be fully satisfied for us, who no longer follow our sinful nature but instead follow the Spirit.
