How to Grow in Christ Series #18

If your doctor told you that you had only twenty four hours to live how would you choose to live the last day of your mortal existence?
 
Would you want to fly to Paris and have the best meal of your life? Perhaps you would want to go over how much money you have made in your life and gaze upon all of your assets?
 
Or would you want to spend your last hours watching your favorite movies?
Maybe you would call all of your family and friends to share the last few hours of your life with you. If you love wine would, you want to drink a few of the best bottles of wine and be high on the greatest wine before you die and thereby drown all of your fears?
 
We could continue this list of things that people might want to pursue before they died ad infinitum, however, the wise person that is a Christian should ask themselves, “How would my God want me to live the last day of my Christian life?”
 
I believe His answer would be that the Christian should live their last day the same way they should have been living their entire life, according to Scripture, for the glory of the Father (I Cor.10:31) through being, moment-by-moment, occupied with the life of the resurrected Christ (Gal.2:20) by means of the filling of the Holy Spirit (Ephs.5:18).
 
In other words, we should be living a Scriptural, Trinitarian Christian existence so that the world could witness what redeemed humanity looks like for the glory of God the Father.
 
Purpose: To learn from Scripture alone how a Christian should live the final day of their life.

Discern Grace vs. Law – Series #16

 
11/7/10
 

Gal 5:1 Stand fast therefore in the liberty by which Christ has made us free, and do not be entangled again with a yoke of bondage.

Gal 5:2 Indeed I, Paul, say to you that if you become circumcised, Christ will profit you nothing.

 

There is no freedom of conscience or growth in the grace of Christ, until a Christian learns the difference between the biblical doctrines of Grace and Law.
 

Gal 3:1 O foolish Galatians! Who has bewitched you that you should not obey the truth, before whose eyes Jesus Christ was clearly portrayed among you as crucified?

Gal 3:2 This only I want to learn from you: Did you receive the Spirit by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith?—

Gal 3:3 Are you so foolish? Having begun in the Spirit, are you now being made perfect by the flesh?

 

2Pe 3:18 but grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To Him be the glory both now and forever. Amen.

Luk 2:40 And the Child grew and became strong in spirit, filled with wisdom; and the grace of God was upon Him.

 

Joh 1:17 For the law was given through Moses, but grace and truth came through Jesus Christ.

 

Purpose: To learn from Scripture alone how to develop discernment concerning the difference between Grace and Law in the Bible. So that we can serve the Father in a manner that honors His grace and show  forth the excellence and superiority of the grace of Christ in contrast to the bondage and condemnation of the Law of Moses.
 

Rightly divide the Word of Truth.

So much confusion comes from teachers not rightly dividing the Word of Truth.

When a Christian comingles law and grace they are totally confused concerning God’s purpose for His people under the dispensation of grace. Christ ushered in a totally new principle by which Christians are to manage their lives, and this grace principle i.e. dispensation, has nothing to do with the old principle of the Law of Moses. The Old Covenant as been permanently removed as a rule of life for Christians and it has been replaced by a better, greater and much superior New Covenant which is the only rule of life for the Christian. Any teacher that tries to put a Christian under the law is insulting the Spirit of Grace and they are causing Christian’s to not be led by the Holy Spirit Who is the One Who is to grow them in the New Covenant of the resurrected Lord Jesus Christ.

Rom 6:14  For sin shall not have dominion over you, for you are not under law but under grace.
  
To rightly divide the Word of God is critical to truly understand Christianity and the Christians’ relationship to the Father under the Holy Spirits’ revelation of the New Covenant.


Until a Christian comprehends the profound change that God brought about through Christ
 by abolishing the Old Covenant, he can not appreciate all that Christ is and what He has accomplished on behalf of the New Covenant Christian.

 
2Ti 2:15 Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
 

Heb 10:15 But the Holy Spirit also witnesses to us; for after He had said before,

Heb 10:16 “THIS IS THE COVENANT THAT I WILL MAKE WITH THEM AFTER THOSE DAYS, SAYS THE LORD:

 I WILL PUT MY LAWS INTO THEIR HEARTS, AND IN THEIR MINDS I WILL WRITE THEM,”

Heb 10:17 then He adds, “THEIR SINS AND THEIR LAWLESS DEEDS I WILL REMEMBER NO MORE.”

Heb 10:18 Now where there is remission of these, there is no longer an offering for sin.

Heb 10:19 Therefore, brethren, having boldness to enter the Holiest by the blood of Jesus,

Heb 10:20 by a new and living way which He consecrated for us, through the veil, that is, His flesh,

Heb 10:21 and having a High Priest over the house of God,

Heb 10:22 let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from

 an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water.

 

Heb 7:12 For the priesthood being changed, of necessity there is also a change of the law.

Heb 7:15 And it is yet far more evident if, in the likeness of Melchizedek, there arises another priest

Heb 7:16 who has come, not according to the law of a fleshly commandment, but according to th

e power of an endless life.

Heb 7:17 For He testifies: “YOU ARE A PRIEST FOREVER ACCORDING TO THE ORDER OF MELCHIZEDEK.”

Heb 7:18 For on the one hand there is an annulling of the former commandment because of its

weakness and unprofitableness,

Heb 7:19  for the law made nothing perfect; on the other hand, there is the bringing in of a better hope,

 through which we draw near to God.

Heb 7:20 And inasmuch as He was not made priest without an oath

Heb 7:21 (for they have become priests without an oath, but He with an oath by Him who said to Him:

“THE LORD HAS SWORN AND WILL NOT RELENT, ‘YOU ARE A PRIEST FOREVER ACCORDING TO THE ORDER OF MELCHIZEDEK’ “),

Heb 7:22 by so much more Jesus has become a surety of a better covenant.

Heb 7:23 Also there were many priests, because they were prevented by death from continuing.

Heb 7:24 But He, because He continues forever, has an unchangeable priesthood.

Heb 7:25 Therefore He is also able to save to the uttermost those who come to God through Him,

since He always lives to make intercession for them.

Heb 7:26  For such a High Priest was fitting for us, who is holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners,

 and has become higher than the heavens;

Heb 7:27 who does not need daily, as those high priests, to offer up sacrifices, first for His own sins and

then for the people’s, for this He did once for all when He offered up Himself.

Heb 7:28  For the law appoints as high priests men who have weakness, but the word of the oath,

which came after the law, appoints the Son who has been perfected forever.

 

Until the Holy Spirit contrasted for me the life of the Old Covenant believer with the life
 of the New Covenant believer through the book of Hebrews then and only then was I able to fully
 understand  the majesty, supremacy and uniqueness of all that Christ did for me.
 
Purpose: To learn through Scripture alone the difference between the life of the Old Covenant believer
 with the life of the New Covenant believer by means of Christ annulling the Old Covenant.
