Good mornings begin with gratitude for life. For some that means food, shelter and family. For others good mornings mean the growth in grace and the continuation of the grip on eternal life.
Spirit and Life
Things Unchangeable You Bought
God wrote ten words! That’s it, folks. The rest of sacred literature is the product thievery and robbery, temporary and subject to human whims. This is part of a mantra belonging to people in death’s shadow who think they are God’s exclusive lamp.
Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else.Isaiah 45:22
God did not write Isaiah 45:22 with his finger but if one does not “look and be saved” one’s condemnation and perishing is assured apart from a thousand violations of law and prophetic judgments.
No one Needs to stare Perpetual Condemnation in the Face to be Saved
Who wants to be condemned? Certainly not the saved. Proof that all people are victims is readily available before we read or hear what the law and the prophets say.
Now we know that everything said in the Law is addressed to those who are under its authority, in order that every mouth may be closed, and the whole world become liable to the judgement of God. For ‘no human being will be pronounced righteous before God’ as the result of obedience to Law; for it is Law that shows what sin is.Romans 3:19-20
Fingerprinted and blinded
But if the ministration of death, written and engraven in stones, was glorious, so that the children of Israel could not stedfastly behold the face of Moses for the glory of his countenance; which glory was to be done away: How shall not the ministration of the spirit be rather glorious?2 Corinthians 3:7-8
Spotlighting and sighted
For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.2 Corinthians 4:6
The contrary handwriting
So you love the handwriting more than you love God? You do not know what parts of Scripture are hostile, and bring condemnation and death? That’s incredible. You do not know what parts of Scripture are beneficial and bring hope and life? That’s incredible too. No child of God needs to hear “not”, “not”, “not” to stay alive. Who wrote what is no secret and who gets life is not rocket science.
Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross; And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it.Colossians 2:14-15
The stone inscribed handwriting gets eclipsed by a person. The Messiah does not turn things over to Moses and the prophets. Yeshua’s face is light, but Moses’ face is a dim ember that points to blindness. Handwriting will never trump atonement.
Whaddya know! Look what you bought!
Knowing this, that the law is not made for a righteous man, but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and for sinners, for unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers,1 Timothy 1:9
Dead body and righteous life
We must not assail the faith of our brothers. we ought to as did Paul, affirm, not question, the condition of the faithful: that Christ is in them and that they are righteous.
But if Christ is in you, although the body is dead because of sin, the Spirit is life because of righteousness. Romans 8:10
Contrary to the hoopla, fable smuggling and terrorism of the former regime the resident Christ means dead body and righteous living. Faith is that decisive.
