JUST DA TRUTH-ABOUT “BEING ABOVE THE LAW”

For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace. Romans 6:14 King James Version

Have you ever heard the term, “they think they’re above the law”?   In the natural it means people who think they don’t have to conform to the law of land and they commit crimes.  In the natural this is looked upon as a bad thing, but in the spirit and for believers it’s a good thing.  Now I am not talking about breaking laws of government. The Word of God tells us to obey every ordinance of man.  No I’m talking about the Mosaic Law, the Ten Commandments and the other hundreds of laws that for a good part of the first four thousand years of man’s existence men have tried to keep and could not.  Churches and thousands of preachers have tried for thousands of year to get people to live right by preaching and teaching the law.  Others threaten with it. If you don’t do this then God wont do this and if you do do this then God will do this.  Thank God for deliverance!

I’m telling you that law life will kill you!!! I don’t make negative confessions. What I just told you is DA TRUTH.  If you don’t believe me take a look at what God’s Word says about the law and the ten commandments.

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: 2 Corinthians 3:7 King James Version

The Word of God calls the ten commandments the ministration of death.  Do you know what ministration means?  It means something or someone that ministers death. And that’s exactly what the law does, it ministers death to those who cannot keep it.  And guess what, that is everyone of us except Jesus.  Even Paul corrected ministers and other believers in his time that tried to put the yoke of the law and circumcision on newly converted Gentile believers.

So why are you now challenging God by burdening the Gentile believers with a yoke that neither we nor our ancestors were able to bear? Acts 15:10 New Living Translation

Do you see what Paul said?  He said why are you burdening the Gentile believers with a yoke that neither we nor our ancestors were able to bear?  The law is not designed to be obeyed by us because God already knew we couldn’t.  It was designed to bring us to the end of ourselves and so we could say I can’t do it and I have to yield myself to the only One who can and did obey and fulfill the law and that was JESUS!!  Let’s look at this fulfillment in the Word.

Christ is the fulfillment of Moses’ Teachings so that everyone who has faith may receive God’s approval. Romans 10:4 Gods Word Translation

For Christ has already accomplished the purpose for which the law was given. As a result, all who believe in him are made right with God. Romans 10:4 New Living Translation

So we see here that Christ is the fulfillment of the law and the fulfillment of the purpose that the law was given.  The law was given so that men could see that they could not fulfill the law and turn to Christ.  Since Christ has fulfilled thou shalt not kill, thou shalt not steal, etc… then people no longer go to hell for killing or stealing.  WHAT???  I said, since Christ has fulfilled the law, not just the 10 commandments  but all the other 600 or 700 laws that you did not know and were not bothering to keep anyway then people no longer go to hell for breaking God’s laws.  So how do people go to hell today?  The only reason a person goes to hell today is for rejecting and denying Jesus. That IS the only reason.  You’ll be happy to know that the Father in all His great Love and Mercy has reduced all that law down to one thing or one Person: JESUS.  Accept Jesus and you are SAVED!!  It sounds easy on our end but for Big Poppa it was not easy at all.  God the Father went through a process as a Father and a parent that most of us would not even consider.  He gave up His One and only Son so that the price could be paid for every single sin that every person ever born would ever commit.  His Son was beat, and died to provide a way so that no human being had to live under the law of eternal sin and death.

For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death. Romans 8:2 King James Version  

Because of what Jesus did every person now has the opportunity to be completely and totally free from the law of sin and death.  If you accept Jesus, sin (and please know sin here is a noun a person, place  or thing) no longer has ANY dominion over you in any way, in any shape or in any form.  Why?   Lets go back to our opening text.

For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace. Romans 6:14 King James Version

So sin does not have ANY dominion over you because YOU ARE NOT UNDER THE LAW, but under GRACE!!  So if you are not under the law then you are ABOVE THE LAW, but UNDER GRACE.  You are above the law!  Because of what Christ did by fulfilling the law and the purpose of the law, sin and death have no dominion over you in the form of sickness, disease, debt, lack or any other thing not ordained by God.  That word under in Romans 6:14 means “under authority” of someone working directly as a subordinate (under someone/something else). So you are not under the authority of the law working directly as a subordinate for the law.  You are above the law!! You are under the authority of GRACE working directly by your own will as a subordinate for GRACE:JESUS!!!!

All the “blessed” to you!!! Shalom!
