Concerning "mankind" .........and the LAW; Eve's disobedience,
and the "route back to OBEDIENCE unto LIFE."
The LAW was "ordained" unto LIFE all along, not unto "sacrifices" of
bulls and goats. But man eating from the tree of knowledge
of good and evil, got a few things mixed up. Then we had to
go all around all this mess to find our way back! To understand
why Paul called it HOLY! The "killing" part was ADDED. It was
"ordained" to LIFE, but then God said "I kill and I make ALIVE."
I personally believe this represents the "great horror" seen by Abraham.
When Paul saw the Truth, he even called the killing part, HOLY.
Because the LAW lead Him to the knowledge of Christ. The mystery.
That is why it says in Psa. 50
"Call my people together, those
that have made a "covenant" with me by "sacrifice"
verses down, God says "Will I drink the blood of bulls and goats.?"
"I will not reprove you for these sacrifices, but ......we have to
learn OBEDIENCE is better than "sacrifice and offering".
And"why" Job was called Perfect and Upright even "before" his trials.God was seeing the Second Man in him all along, but Job being born subject to vanity, wasn't.
God says He will "break" our "covenant" of death mentioned there in Psa.
50. It is a covenant man tries to make.The first covenant. Hagar.
Not unto LIFE!
Jesus came to show
us the WAY of Obedience unto Life. Laying down our lives leads to finding
our lives. Finding that Second Man.
As we have borne the"image"
of the earthy, law, first covenant, judging after the flesh, misunderstanding, etc.
so shall we bear the IMAGE of the Heavenly
a Quickening Spirit.
Jesus was given all Judgement to "quicken"
whomsoever He would. LIFE giving Jesus.
Because it is concerning "mankind" is why we are told to henceforth
know no man after the flesh, when we are given understanding.
Judge no man after the flesh. God sets us on a journey that
brings one of a family, two of a city, to the understanding. This
is why it says "as you judge, so shall you be judged."
Therefore they shall "know" my Name! For My Name shall be
GREAT among the heathen. God does many things, works all things
together for the glory of His Name.
Praise HIM! He is the GIFT of God!
