    When Man's Laws Violate God's Laws

    But when Daniel learned that the law had been signed, he went home and knelt down as usual in his upstairs room, with its windows open toward Jerusalem. He prayed three times a day, just as he had always done, giving thanks to his God. Daniel 6:10 How would you respond if a law were passed...

    Avoiding Sexual Sin

    Therefore, anyone who refuses to live by these rules is not disobeying human teaching but is rejecting God, who gives his Holy Spirit to you. 1 Thessalonians 4:8 NLT Paul had just finished speaking against sexual sin (1 Thessalonians 4:3-7), and he knew that some people would argue with him...

    Unsaved Gentiles and the Law

    First of all, what's a Gentile? A Gentile is anyone who is not biologically of Jewish descent. The BIble sometimes calls these people sons of Israel, Israel is the name of a country, but not everyone in the that country is a "son of Israel". Israel was also the name given to Jacob. Gen...

    the Scribes, the Lawyers and the Sanhedrin

    Is there a danger that we might follow the way of the Sanhedrin, the way of the Pharisee, the ways of the Scribes and the way of the Lawyers? Is there some way of checking ourselves to ensure we do not? The high priest then questioned Jesus about His disciples and His teaching. Jesus answered...

    Law and Faith

    Does the subject of law and faith ever confuse you? I think it can be confusing for those of us who were born in the Messianic age, and not under the Old Covenant, as the Jews of old were. I think, too, that in this confusion a lot of false doctrines were born out of wrong ideas of what all this...

    Deuteronomic Law In Modern Times

    While I accept the Bible is a cornerstone in the foundation of Western culture, and I’d never deny that millions base a vigorous and just moral identity on certain of its teachings, I flatly disagree that any literal Biblical reading is a prescription for a modern ethical society. To the extent...

    Heirs of the Promise

    Monday, January 16, 2017, 9:42 p.m. – The Lord Jesus put in mind the song “My Very Best Friend.” Speak, Lord, your words to my heart. I read Galatians 3:26-4:7 (NASB). Through Faith (3:26-27) For you are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus. For all of you who were baptized into...

    New Old Testament Way of Law

    Greetings, back in the Old Testament we can see how man added to the Law given by the LORD. When The Saviour came and walked among men He confronted the outcome of what amounts to men adding to what God has said. And He said, Woe unto you also, ye lawyers! for ye lade men with burdens...

    Our Righteousness

    Thursday, December 17, 2015, 1:00 p.m. – The Lord Jesus put in mind the song “No Less.” Speak, Lord, your words to my heart. I read Matthew 5:17-20 (NASB). “Do not think that I came to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I did not come to abolish but to fulfill. For truly I say to you, until...

    Are We Ready?

    Thursday, June 4, 2015, 7:47 a.m. – The Lord Jesus put in mind the song “Fully Ready.” Speak, Lord, your words to my heart. I read Galatians 4 (Selected vv. NASB). Law vs. Grace (vv. 1-11) Now I say, as long as the heir is a child, he does not differ at all from a slave although he is owner of...

    Obedience

    "Do we then make void the law through faith? God forbid: yea, we establish the law." — Romans 3:31 When the believer is adopted into the Lord's family, his relationship to old Adam and the law ceases at once; but then he is under a new rule, and a new covenant. Believer, you are God's...

    Released from the Law

    Released from the Law Romans 7 7 Or do you not know, brothers[a]—for I am speaking to those who know the law—that the law is binding on a person only as long as he lives? 2 For a married woman is bound by law to her husband while he lives, but if her husband dies she is released from the law of...
