You have not been set free from reaping and sowing, you been just taken captive from man and placed into the Hands of God. The New Law is one of accountability and responsibility.
Oh really? Where is this "NEW LAW"
mentioned? And is stated to be ACCOUNTABILITY and RESPONSIBILITY?
No Scriptural support noted here, upon which to found this statement...
So it is thereby relegated to being:Nothing but an OPINION
... there is no Scripture which notes MAN is RESPONSIBLE for SIN... (book, chapter, verse - please)
Also... ALL MEN are in the HANDS of GOD... please! JUDGMENT is for ALL... just because SOME have been given ears to hear of GRACE, does not remove the deeds of their lives from being what they ARE, WERE, or WILL BE
Interpretation, brings about observation and conclusion... and there is no NEW LAW (book, chapter, verse - please!)
... God's LAW was NOT removed... (Matt 5:17)
it was FULFILLED... and IN CHRIST
... that LAW does not present NEGATIVITY...
Scripture states that ALL JUDGMENT is committed to the Son (John 5:22)
and the Son PLAINLY STATED, that He JUDGETH NO MAN (John 12:47)
It is the DEEDS of our lives which come into JUDGMENT... (1 Cor 3:11-15)
Those deeds are done NOW
... as IS the JUDGMENT
of them (John 12:31)
in THIS FIRE
live in... (Rev 3:18)John 8:15 YE JUDGE... after the FLESH... I, JUDGE NO MAN...
(Scripture notes that JESUS
is the SAME
yesterday, today and forever... Heb 13:8
-- if He makes a statement, then it STANDS FOREVER
and He clearly stated that He JUDGES -- NO MAN!)CHRIST
notes here that MEN "judge" after the FLESH... which is the common observation of JUDGMENT ...BY MEN... but CHRIST
1. HE came NOT to JUDGE... (John 12:47)
2. that He JUDGES NO MAN... (John 8:15)WHY
? Because GRACE is the JUSTICE
of the DIVINE (Rom 5:14-21)
? Because the DIVINE is working ALL THINGS, according to ITS PURPOSE? (Eph 1:11)
? To instill the KNOWLEDGE of GOOD and EVIL... (Gen 3:22)
His IMPARTIAL PURPOSE, ...is NOT
to reward one for deeds HE DID NOT DO for CHRIST
is working in those who SIN NOT... or to CURSE another for deeds HE DID DO... when CHRIST
is NOT working in those who SIN...
It is GOD who DRAWS helpless men unto Himself, ....GIVES EARS to HEAR, then speaks to those whom HE has chosen to, ...JUSTIFIES according to HIS purpose, not the according to the limited and finite observations of MEN, which think to propose JUDGMENT of others, which they are TOLD NOT to do! (Matt 7:1)
3. That we are to JUDGE NOT... (why? - because we "judge" after the flesh
stated that men DO!)
This is TOO SIMPLE for LAWYER-TYPES to understand... for they are caught up in their ego's, ...puffed up because of their "knowledge"... instead of letting the entirety of themselves fall to HUMILITY before GOD... and KNOW that GOD is IN CONTROL... and that HE is ORCHESTRATING this whole "kit & kaboodle"!
This isn't a competition! And GOD is no respecter of persons (PERFECTLY IMPARTIAL)...
So wherein is this EQUALITY found, when one guy is born in poverty and amongst criminals and is subsequently INFLUENCED by that environment... and the other guy is born the son of Billy Graham, and thereby wallows in plenty, and good INFLUENCES?
The EQUALITY is found in GOD... He HARDENS, He softens, He justifies, because HE is WORKING His PURPOSE in ALL...
ALL SIN ...IS
... taken away... if TAKEN AWAY, then it is REMOVED... if REMOVED wherein is RESPONSIBILITY... and there is NO NEW LAW... there is GRACE which is LOVE which SAVES ALL...
Reap and Sow are principles which ACTIVELY govern the deeds of THIS LIFE - (which is DEATH) within TIME... The observer here takes behavior done HERE in FLESH and transposes punishments for said deeds, to the realm of SPIRIT LIFE in the ETERNAL...
The understanding of GRACE, is NOT a license which frees man to misbehave and thereby SIN...
GOD is WORKING ALL THINGS... which is too simple for the complex to understand... and too complex for ANY MAN to totally observe!
So we are left with two most definite options which are ORDAINED of GOD:
1. Promote LOVE, which teaches that GOD so LOVED the WORLD that He sent His only SON to SAVE it... that GOD was IN CHRIST reconciling the WORLD... that JUSTICE belongs to GOD alone... that SIN was TAKEN AWAY... that FORGIVENESS is DIVINE JUSTICE, or:
2. Promote that which is NOT of LOVE... and is TWO FACED... In ONE FACE -- telling the WORLD that GOD "LOVES them", but then TURN FACE -- telling them that He's GONNA GETCHA, if you don't listen to ME...
AND that VENGENCE is His PURPOSE and method of RECONCILIATION... (conveniently noting themselves as not due to receive any of this HORROR)
AND that YOU pay
for your SIN if you don't HEAR those CLAIMING they are preach this in the name of "LOVE"
gave no such example in His life, nor in His treatment of MEN... He was NOT vengent... He did NOT do anything which remotely displayed such a trait... He taught to FORGIVE, for men KNOW NOT what they DO... And in His ministry, He FORGAVE, over & over & over again... NOT ONCE exacting VENGENCE on ANYONE... (please don't cite the Moneychangers in the temple... NO MAN suffered, the principles they purposed suffered - the TABLES were thrown down... CHRIST did not physically "assault" the moneychangers -- He "assaulted" their merchandise and means)
There is no hedge, tradition, or excuse that can decieved the ears of men when it is God who is your judge. It seems to me that the UR message by some has avoided this to the point of delusion and willful ignorance
I agree... LOVE and GRACE and FORGIVENESS are NOT the message of many which have come to "know" UR... rather... just a different VERSION of HELL is preached, and an undisclosed but FINITE duration imposed upon it...JESUS
gave no such instruction to teach this... He said: Matt 28:19-20 ...Go ye therefore and teach ALL NATIONS, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, ...teaching them to observe whatsoever I have commanded you...
Where did He COMMAND
them to teach of HELL or some "UR alternative"?
What commands did He give? FORGIVE your enemies -- JUDGE NOT -- Bring the GOSPEL of SALVATION to them... YES!!!
Tell them about HELL?
Tell them they are going to be DAMNED if they don't listen to you?
Believe what you will...
