3-8-2020 “AS MANY AS RECEIVED HIM! part2 John 1:17

Please listen to these audio study’s. This blog only highlights the study and there is tons of Biblical information on the audio study that the confines of this blog can not express.

This week Bro. Leo continues us on a Biblical study that’s goal is to look at the life of Jesus through a lens of those who were there. This is the tenth study of the series, the first three studies set the foundation of the series.

This week we continue to study how Jesus further teaches the transition of the Jewish folks from the Law to Grace (John 1:17).

In Matt.5:17-21 Jesus explains that the Mosaic law reveals the Holiness of God and the sinfulness of man to us and man’s response to “the Law” is obedience, but “Grace and Truth” reveals the heart of God and our personal need for Jesus.  Paul explains the transition between the “Law” and “Grace and Truth” in Rom.7:7,12-13, Gal.3:10-12).  We must remember when we hear “the Law” that there were 613 regulations Mosaic laws, 248 were commands, 365 of them were prohibitions, there were 1521 Rabbinical addendum’s.

“The Law” was only in effect until Jesus came and fulfilled it (Gal.3:19).  “Grace and Truth” transited us from “the Law” to faith of Jesus (Gal.3:22-24).  The word “faith” in vs.24 is translated from the Greek word “pistis” which means to believe about to the point of trusting in to the point of committing to.  As soon as Jesus fulfilled “the Law” He transitioned us from the 613 regulations Mosaic laws, 248 were commands, 365 of them were prohibitions, there were 1521 Rabbinical addendum’s unto “Grace and Truth” where we are saved by “pistis” alone (1John 5:13).

“The Law” says do this, don’t do that, obey and work (Matt.5:48).  “Grace and Truth” says come unto Me, I will help you, I will change you, I will empower you and I will indwell you (Gal.3:21-22, Gal.2:20-21).

Scriptures used in today’s message:

1Jn 5:17 All unrighteousness is sin: and there is a sin not unto death.

Mat 5:48 Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.

Mat 5:17 Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.
Mat 5:18 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.
Mat 5:19 Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.
Mat 5:20 For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven.
Mat 5:21 Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not kill; and whosoever shall kill shall be in danger of the judgment:

Rom 7:7 What shall we say then? Is the law sin? God forbid. Nay, I had not known sin, but by the law: for I had not known lust, except the law had said, Thou shalt not covet.
Rom 7:12 Wherefore the law is holy, and the commandment holy, and just, and good.
Rom 7:13 Was then that which is good made death unto me? God forbid. But sin, that it might appear sin, working death in me by that which is good; that sin by the commandment might become exceeding sinful.

Gal 3:10 For as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse: for it is written, Cursed is every one that continueth not in all things which are written in the book of the law to do them.
Gal 3:11 But that no man is justified by the law in the sight of God, it is evident: for, The just shall live by faith.
Gal 3:12 And the law is not of faith: but, The man that doeth them shall live in them.

Gal 3:19 Wherefore then serveth the law? It was added because of transgressions, till the seed should come to whom the promise was made; and it was ordained by angels in the hand of a mediator.

Gal 3:22 But the scripture hath concluded all under sin, that the promise by faith of Jesus Christ might be given to them that believe.
Gal 3:23 But before faith came, we were kept under the law, shut up unto the faith which should afterwards be revealed.
Gal 3:24 Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith.

1Jn 5:13 These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.

Gal 3:21 Is the law then against the promises of God? God forbid: for if there had been a law given which could have given life, verily righteousness should have been by the law.
Gal 3:22 But the scripture hath concluded all under sin, that the promise by faith of Jesus Christ might be given to them that believe.

Gal 2:20 I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.
Gal 2:21 I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness come by the law, then Christ is dead in vain.
