… because by a single offering He has made perfect for all time those who are sanctified. Hebrews 10:14 Berean Study Bible
** If you missed yesterday’s post be sure to take a few moments and read it now**
Yesterday we talked about how believers and unbelievers alike are many times placed and voluntarily seated in the waiting booth of qualifying for the blessings of God already paid for by Jesus Christ at the Cross. The Cross is not a place of defeat! It looked like a place of defeat to the natural eye and to the devil. But it is the place of the most astounding and complete victory ever to take place for all eternity. There, Jesus became obedient to death only for the purpose of a hidden agenda of defeating and wiping out sin and death ONCE and FOR ALL!!! His life and obedience and death are the spiritual credit report that qualifies the world to be reconciled to God and partake of His divine nature and all that comes with it. Many times preachers will preach this qualifying sermon because they themselves are still under the law. They preach the ten commandments and other law based things when we are now under a entirely different dispensation. Imagine someone going to you and saying, “What are you doing riding in a car. You need to be riding a horse!!! We all started on horses and that’s where you need to be on a horse or in a buggy.” You would look at them like they were crazy and say, “You keep riding that horse. Let me know how it works out for you, especially in the winter time.” There is something that ALL BELIEVERS need to know today and this is vital. WE ARE NOT UNDER THE LAW ANYMORE WE ARE UNDER GRACE!!! Once again, don’t take my word for it, take THE WORD for it.
Sin is no longer your master, for you no longer live under the requirements of the law. Instead, you live under the freedom of God’s grace. Romans 6:14 New Living Translation
Christ is the end of the Law, in order to bring righteousness to everyone who believes. Romans 10:4 Berean Study Bible
Do you know what END means? The end means the end! The end of the movie is the end of the movie. There is nothing else to see. There is nothing else of the law for believers to see or do. CHRIST IS THE END OF THE LAW. If you try to live under the law or let someone tell you you have to live under the law they are putting you back in the booth. If you don’t wake up you will be there until Jesus comes and will learn that you could have enjoyed all He had freely given at great cost to Him and The Father. You cannot qualify or pay for something when you are spiritually and naturally bankrupt. Man was bankrupt, insolvent. They had no way or no means to save themselves and this is why God the Father sent Jesus to reconcile the world back to Himself because ONLY HE COULD DO IT!!! Not your law keeping, not your good works, not your qualifying only HIS GRACE and GIFT of RIGHTEOUSNESS.
So …… if you are in the booth get out NOW!!!! If you are out of the booth STAY OUT and don’t let ANYONE drag you back in. GRACE is the way of the Kingdom!! The Gospel of Grace is the true Gospel or Good News because GRACE is not a thing it is the Person of Jesus Christ!!!!
We will continue this tomorrow and if you missed yesterday go back and read it please.
All the blessed to you!!! Shalom!
