Concerning Law…the Continuing Controversy…

Concerning Law…the continuing controversy…

The moral law, that upon which nine of the Ten Commandments at Sinai are based (excluding the 4th), has been extant from the creation of the angels as an arbiter of free will and the moral law of God will remain relevant throughout eternity existing beyond the present Heaven and Earth that will be destroyed by fire (Matthew 24:35; 2 Peter 3:7-10). It is the moral law that is infused within every human being created in the spiritual image of Elohim (Genesis 1:26-28) as the moral law is one of the communicable attributes given humanity by God relevant to His eschatological purposes in Time and Eternity.

The moral law judged Satan and the fallen angels; this same law judged the Adamic and Noahic generations where all but eight perished in water. This same moral law will be used at adjudication in the Judgment of the Condemned (Revelation 20:11-15). God’s moral law is of necessity as a bulwark against unrestrained narcissism resulting in human self-destruction and God’s moral law is of necessity concerning justice in order that judgment manifest with due process and equality.

The Law Covenant and the moral law of conscience…

The Law Covenant given Israel’s children consisted of moral law, civil-ceremonial law and Jesus fulfilled the moral and civil-ceremonial laws in perfection and was the only One qualified to provide you blood atonement for your sin (Hebrews 10). The civil-ceremonial laws foreshadowed the coming Messiah and now that our Messiah has come, we’re no longer under dietary, Sabbath edicts, clothing-fabric prohibitions (Colossians 2:16)…but we remain culpable for adherence to the moral law…that law that governs behavior between God and man and man with his fellowman.

Moral Law and the Christian…

In the New Covenant, established in Messiah’s blood (Matthew 26:28), it is the indwelling Holy Spirit given to the faithful in Jesus (Ephesians 1:13-14) that arbitrates the moral law via the conscience via the daily process of sanctification (Galatians 5:16). Christians are not enslaved to letters, laws, ordinances, days, dietary restrictions, in order to please God (Romans 7:14 & 6:14) but the Christian walks in obedience to the Holy Spirit via the conscience and in their new-nature (2 Corinthians 5:17) they seek to please the Father because they truly love Him as He first loved us and gave Himself for us in the Son, Jesus Christ (1 John 4:19); therefore, the Christian walks in peace and intimacy with God as we’re forgiven and redeemed by our Lord Jesus Christ through His work at Golgotha (Romans 5:1).
