The Law of the Spirit? (Romans 8:2) Torah Law or Moral Law of Conscience?
Elohim gave the moral law first to the angels as an arbiter of free will and this law judged Satan of covetousness and the one-third of the angelic creation that followed Satan in the rebellion ultimately leading to the creation of matter, Time, our Universe, our genome as a temporary repository for this destructive war.
Elohim then infused the moral law of conscience into the human genome on the 6th-Day as He created human kind in His spiritual image (Genesis 1:26-28) and imparted certain communicable attributes of Elohim into humanity, one being the moral law which was to act as an arbiter of free will and a bulwark against societal implosion via unrestrained narcissism (Romans 2:14-15); second; the moral law will be used to ensure due process at the Judgment of the Condemned manifesting subsequent Messiah’s Millennial Reign (Revelation 20:11-15) as all of humanity will be “without excuse” (Romans 1:20).
This moral law of conscience, given humanity thousands of years before Sinai, judged the Adamic and Noahic generations of defilement and Elohim judged all but eight to death in water. This same moral law was foundational to the creation of man’s law such as the Code of Hammurabi.
When Elohim set apart a people group for His eschatological purposes via Abraham-Isaac-Jacob (Israel), He etched into stone and led Moses to scratch upon parchment certain specific laws that are nothing more than a reiteration of the moral law of conscience with some specificity concerning Jacob’s children and their conduct among pagan tribes serving pagan gods that relentlessly sought Israel’s compromise.
The Law Covenant and the Torah Law was and IS relevant ONLY to a very minuscule fragment of societal totality and that Torah Law is nothing more than a reiteration of the moral law of conscience with specificity. The Law Covenant and Torah Law are NOT the Law of the Spirit but the moral law of conscience, extant from the creation of the angels, is the law written upon our heart and arbitrated by the Holy Spirit via the conscience via sanctification which is a far superior form of behavioral modification seeing that the anointing of the Spirit works with the New Creation in Christ (2 Corinthians 5:17) to form the new-man who is indwelt by God as opposed to the Torah Law etched in cold, unyielding stone and scratched upon parchment condemning the old sin-nature void the Spirit that inevitably led to failure and condemnation because of compromise; therefore, the letter kills but the Spirit gives life (2 Corinthians 3:6).
Torah Law is NOT on the heart and mind of most Christians as they walk in sanctification but the Spirit walks them methodically in the moral law that is infinitely more expansive and relevant to every thought of the human mind and in the New Covenant, Messiah enhanced the law to include mens rea or the thought life (Matthew 5:27-28) and now even our thoughts are judged and are liable, culpable, before God; therefore, walking in the anointing of the Spirit (Galatians 5:16; 1 John 2:27) with the New Nature loving God is the only way to please the Father and prepare for life in the New Jerusalem.
