Law and Grace


What is the Bible definition of sin?
"Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law". 1.John 3:4
        
How many have sinned?
"For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God". Romans 3:23
        
What have all sinners earned?
"For the wages of sin is death". Romans 6:23
        
How then does God save sinners?
"For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord". Romans 6:23
"For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast". Ephesians 2:8,9
        
According to Paul, what does our faith in Christ do to the law of God?
"Do we then make void the law through faith? God forbid: yea, we establish the law". Romans 3:31

If we keep the law, does this save us?
"Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight..." Romans 3:20

Then what purpose does the law serve?
"Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin". Romans 3:20
        
If the law only points out sin, how is it then, that we can be cleansed and saved from our sins?
"But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin". 1.John 1:7
Note: The law can only point out sin in our lives. It cannot forgive us for that sin. Forgiveness can only come through the sacrifice of Jesus. James 1:23-25 tells us that while a mirror may show us what we look like, the mirror will not remove any dirt that may be on our face! We need to wash our face with soap and water in order to be clean. When it comes to sin, God's law is the mirror that reveals it, and Jesus' cleansing blood removes it!
        
Does grace give us license to break God's Law?
"What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound? God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein?" "For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace. What then? shall we sin, because we are not under the law, but under grace? God forbid". Romans 6:1,2,14,15
Note: Sin is defined as the transgression of God's law. Jesus came to save us from our sins, not in them. Grace is not a license to sin; it is the power that God gives that we may be able to stop sinning.
        
What has our Heavenly Father promised regarding His law?
"For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, saith the Lord; I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them a God, and they shall be to me a people". Hebrews 8:10
        
What special blessing is pronounced in the last chapter of the Bible?
"Blessed are they that do His commandments, that they may have right to the Tree of Life, and may enter in through the gates into the city". Revelation 22:14
        
Thought promise:
"Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven". Matthew 7:21

We don't know what is going on in this world because we have no clue as to who the Illuminati are and what they have in mind for you and me -  Lucifer Rising global power elite - You can't defeat the enemy if you don't know who it is. We simply cannot see the adversary because our senses have been blinded. In other words, most of us are programmed to pull the strings for those who enslave us. Solution - read if you have time, because at school they don't teach how to guard our freedom, neither do they teach who our enemy is. Read, read Lucifer Rising  by Philip Jones  you owe it  to your family and children. Stay close to God who made this nation great, not to the Angel of Light (Lucifer) who has lately gained the ascendancy, who claims to bring peace and love and all sorts of new technologies. The adherents of this movement believe that peace & love are constantly increasing but in reality we are getting deeper into wars and hatred every day. False hope abounds, it keeps us pacified, that's what the enemy wants. Rumors, lies and disinformation are being used to completely subdue us. We are being told that the cabal of tyrants presently dominating the world is losing on all fronts, and that soon they will be overcome and arrested, with the good guys (white dragon society, and other hidden, but powerful groups) taking over and making the world a better place. Not only that, but a perfect world is envisioned, where everybody has work to make a decent living, where everybody is happy. Again, these are lies and disinformation giving us false hope to keep us pacified and peaceful while the cabal of tyrants is busy putting on the finishing touches to make their oppressive one world government become reality, at which point most everybody will finally wake up, to realize that the dreaded New World Order has arrived.
