Thoughts on the Law of Yahweh

July 21, 2009

We cannot perfectly follow Yahweh’s laws/teachings/ways. That is what humbles us. We know that, no matter how hard we try…we simply cannot keep His all of His laws perfectly. That is why we need Yeshua.

Breaking even one tiny law is equal to breaking them all. It brings the penalty of death and total separation from our Creator…forever! Yet, out of love for us, Yeshua paid the penalty for us. He took on death and conquered it by raising from the dead. Our bodies still die, but we will be given new ones…ones that will never get sick and never die. Because of what He did, we can live with Him forever…never to be separated from His presence.

If we believe that Yeshua came so that we could live outside of the law, then what is it that convicts us? What is it that keeps us humble? What is it that keeps us grateful for what Yeshua did for us…if not our inability to keep His law?

If we don’t have to keep the law, then how do we know that we have failed? What does it mean to backslide? What is there to continue to remind us of how very much we need a Saviour? What is there to keep us from becoming proud?

Is our “freedom” something to be proud of? NO! He chose us from the foundation of the earth. He did not have to! It is Yahweh who draws us to Himself…not the other way around.

His laws were given to us for our own good. We are protected from certain things when we follow His laws…when we do things according to His ways.

The law was given to teach us. What do we learn from it? Well, we are to love Yahweh with all of our hearts, all of our souls, all of our minds and all of our strengths. We are also to love our neighbor as ourselves. The law teaches us how to do just that! It teaches us how to interact appropriately with Yahweh and how to interact appropriately with others.

    “Love The LORD, The Only True G-D, Father(Creator) of ALL, with all your heart, mind , soul and strength and your neighbor as yourself”…….

    Quite simple, yet can only be Spiritually perceived, and then acheived only in, of, by and thru The Spirit that is The Only True G-D…….

    Father Help! and HE does…….

    Peace, in spite of the dis-ease(no-peace) that is of this wicked world……. francis
