!e Law

“O how love I thy law! it is my meditation all the day. Thou through thy commandments hast made me wiser than mine enemies: for they are ever with me.� (Psalms 119: 97)


Introduction The Law of God is eternal & has always been It proceeds from the throne of God It did NOT begin with Moses It did NOT end at the crucifixion of Christ Despite these facts, many say that you are no longer required to obey the laws of God This presentation will dispel this myth

In the beginning... Adam & Eve were created in the image of God The Lord commanded them not to eat of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good & Evil Adam & Eve broke this commandment After disobeying God, sin & death corrupted their flesh & all people born after them From that point on, the deeds of humankind became sinful Š2012 Household Of Israel Temple Of Jesus Christ.

What Exactly is sin So what is sin?.....it is the transgression or breaking of God’s law It is like a cancer that quickly spreads until it completely destroys its host if allowed As people multiplied on this earth, sin did indeed spread & at vast levels Š2012 Household Of Israel Temple Of Jesus Christ.

When Did the law begin? There is a misconception that the Law of God began during the time of Moses This statement is NOT true & here’s why.... It is evident in the bible that people were living in sin long before Moses was even born We can even look at the time of Noah, when God destroyed practically all living things because of their wickedness Š2012 Household Of Israel Temple Of Jesus Christ.

The law was established from the beginning So how could God deem these people to be wicked if there was no law to judge them with? That is because the Law was established from the beginning The people born before Moses knew God & the Law but most disobeyed him anyway

The law & the nation of israel During the time of Moses, the children of Israel became a great nation after 430 years of captivity in Egypt God established a covenant with Israel and gave unto them his holy laws Moses often communed with God face to face and went up to Mount Sinai where he received the 10 commandments on 2 tables of stone It was NOT Moses that wrote the commandments but the LORD

The law came directly from the mouth of god The law was so binding to all people in every generation, that God did not speak it into Moses’ ear and command Moses to tell the people God spoke the words of the Ten Commandments directly to the people so that they would know that these were the commandments of God & not the law of man The children of Israel heard the voice of God in a way that no one had heard it before, and in a way that no one has heard it since Š2012 Household Of Israel Temple Of Jesus Christ.

Is the law null & void? So why is the law so despised today? Why is it rejected, particularly by those who call themselves religious leaders? Did Christ make the law null and void? NO HE DID NOT

The law remains God did not do away with the law Christ magnified it and demonstrated it to us by his life, showing us how to keep it perfectly Throughout the entire bible, both old & new testaments, it speaks of keeping the law Š2012 Household Of Israel Temple Of Jesus Christ.

Scriptures supporting the law “If ye love me, keep my commandments,”(St. John 14: 15) “The Lord is well pleased for his righteousness sake: he will magnify the law and make it honorable,”(Isaiah 43: 20) “Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect,”(Matthew 5: 48)

Scriptures supporting the law For he established a testimony in Jacob, and appointed a law in Israel, which he commanded our fathers, that they should make them known to their children. That the generation to come might know them, even the children which should be born; who should arise and declare them to their children: That they might set their hope in God, and not forget the works of God, but keep his commandments: (Psalms 78: 5-7) Š2012 Household Of Israel Temple Of Jesus Christ. All Rights Reserved


Scriptures often misunderstood There are scriptures in the bible that can be misconstrued to have a different meaning if one does not review them closely “For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace” (Romans 6: 14) When looking at this scripture it may leave one with the impression that you do not have to keep the commandments of God because we have been granted grace In the same chapter the Apostle Paul also stated this.... “What then? shall we sin, because we are not under the law, but under grace? God forbid. (Romans 6: 15)” ©2012 Household Of Israel Temple Of Jesus Christ. All Rights Reserved


Scriptures often misunderstood Given that sin is defined as the transgression of the commandments it would seem that Apostle Paul is contradicting himself; however, this is not the case Paul’s writings were inspired by the Holy Spirit but are often difficult to understand There are three laws that Paul would discuss in his teachings Sacrificial Law - the law of sacrificing & offering of animals during the Levitical Priesthood Law of Sin & Death - Eternal death & condemnation if you commit a sin (“The soul that sinneth shall die...”) (Romans 8: 2) Law of the Spirit of Life -this law commands us to walk under the guidance of the Holy Spirit who will teach us to obey the 1o commandments & abstain from the works of the flesh, which is sin (Romans 8: 2)

Paul would often state ‘the law’ without specifying which law he was referring to in his writings ©2012 Household Of Israel Temple Of Jesus Christ. All Rights Reserved


Grace & the Law So which law was Paul referring to with the scripture below?..... “For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace” (Romans 6: 14) He was referring to the Law of Sin & Death Since the sin of Adam & Eve, ALL of us were born in sin If we were still under the Law of Sin & Death we would ALL die the eternal death & there would be no hope for us By being under grace, God has granted us TIME & an OPPORTUNITY to seek & obey his commandments so that we can gain eternal life & escape eternal damnation ©2012 Household Of Israel Temple Of Jesus Christ.

All humankind are required to obey Every human being is required to obey the 10 commandments, whether jew or gentile Our adherence to the law will determine if we will gain salvation We can not pick and choose which commandment we want to obey If you transgress one then you transgress them all (James 2: 10-11) Š2012 Household Of Israel Temple Of Jesus Christ.

The 4th Commandment There is one of the Ten Commandments that is particularly despised, and that is rejected almost uniformly by the religious system today It is the fourth commandment To justify their tradition of Sunday worship, and their sacrilege regarding the Sabbath day, they teach all people that the law is no longer binding Š2012 Household Of Israel Temple Of Jesus Christ.

Man says Man says that all you have to do to be saved is to love your brother, believe in God and accept Christ as your personal savior This is viewed to be the more acceptable and comfortable way to live life and is believed by most self professed christians

God says Matthew 5:17-18 “Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill. 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.” Revelations 22:13-14 “I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last. Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have a right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.” ©2012 Household Of Israel Temple Of Jesus Christ.

In Closing If we are to say that we love god.....or that we are christians then we must obey the law as christ instructed us to We should not take hold of the popular beliefs of this world that often contradict the gospel of christ if we want to be saved Seek god and read the scriptures yourself that you may learn what the real truth is concerning god & his holy law
