Pt.#10 (God's Olive Tree Plan, From It's Roots To It's Fruit)- (8-29-20)
(Is the Law of God Good or Bad?)! To Born Again, Blood Bought Christians, This Has Been One Of The Most Hotly Debated Question In 2000 Years Of Christendom! (I KNOW, I KNOW, I’M GOING TO BE CRUCIFIED FOR EVEN ASKING THAT QUESTION)! But Jesus Taught on The Subject all throughout The Gospel Text. Therefore, WE MUST AT LEAST ATTEMPT TO HAVE AN HONEST DIALOG ON THE THIS CONTRIVERSIAL SUBJECT! RIGHT? So, What’s The Question? (Is the Law of God Good or Bad?)! To The Jewish People The Answer is: ‘YES’! Historically The Hebrew People has known that to answer that question, is a Matter Of The Heart. If Ones Heart is ‘Honest and Good’, then God’s Law can be used as a Great Source for Blessings and The Knowledge of God! BUT…If Ones Heart is ‘Dishonest and Bad’, then God’s Law can be used as an Instrument of Great Hurt and Lead To Bondage. Therefore, The Answer is : ‘YES’, BECAUSE THE ANSWER IS BASED UPON THE CONDITION OF ‘THE HEART’! What if we asked The Apostle Paul This Most Difficult Question, How Would He Respond? Would he say that ‘God’s Law is Good’, or would he say: ‘No, God’s Law is Bad and No Longer Necessary For Christians’! Or, would he agree with The Sages of Israel and say: ‘YES’! Well let The Apostle to The Gentiles Speak For Himself! (1 Timothy 1:8) ‘But we KNOW that THE LAW is GOOD, ‘IF’ one USES it LAWFULLY’. Therefore, Paul agrees with the ancient teaching of The Sages by saying: ‘YES, IF THE CONDITION OF ONES HEART IS GOOD (LAWFUL)! In (Matthew 5:17) Jesus Said: ‘Don’t think that I’ve come to destroy The Law’! If Jesus didn’t come to planet earth to destroy The Law, then it begs the question: ‘what is the relationship between Jesus believing, blood bought, born again Christians, and The Law! If it’s not destroyed, torn up and done away with, then in what way is it useful to you and I. By leaving the passage within it's 1st century Hebraic setting, the answer becomes crystal clear!
