Does The New Covenant Blot Out God’s Law? | The Great Controversy, End Times Deceptions

DON’T BE DECEIVED!!
THE TRUTH: THE NEW COVENANT DOES NOT ABOLISH GOD’S LAW BUT WRITES THE LAW IN OUR HEARTS.

It Is Satan’s Earnest Effort To Blind Men And Lead Them To Perdition.

“It is Satan’s constant effort to misrepresent the character of God, the nature of sin, and the real issues at stake in the great controversy.” ~ The Great Controversy 569.1

“Proverbs 19:16 He that keepeth the commandment keepeth his own soul; but he that despiseth his ways shall die.”

People Say They Are No More Under The Law But Under Grace.

Therefore They Have The LICENSE TO LIVE ANYHOW BECAUSE THEY ARE UNDER GRACE.

This Is CONTRADICTIVE.

How Can You, Claiming To Be Under Grace Still Be Under The Law?

This Means People Don’t Understand What “Under The Law” Means

People Read The Epistles Of Apostle Paul And Conclude “THEY ARE UNDER GRACE NOW SO THEY NEED NOT TO OBEY GOD”

Verses Like These:

“Galatians 3:23 But before FAITH came, we were kept UNDER THE LAW, shut up unto the faith which should afterwards be revealed.

Galatians 4:5 To redeem them that were UNDER THE LAW, that we might receive the adoption of sons.

Galatians 4:21 Tell me, ye that desire to be UNDER THE LAW, do ye not hear the law?

Galatians 5:18 But if ye be LED of the Spirit, ye are NOT UNDER THE LAW.”

Why Was Apostle Paul Saying We Were Under The Law Before Jesus?

ANSWER:

Anyone Who TRANSGRESS The Law Even ONCE Is Forever Under The LAW.

UNDER THE LAW SIMPLY MEANS UNDER CONDEMNATION.

And For This Fact, All Humanity Fall Short Because We Have All Transgress The Law And Under Condemnation.

“Romans 3:23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;”

Sin Is The Transgression Of The Law
( 1 John 3:4 )

Therefore There Must Be Someone Who Can Redeem Us From The Penalty Of The Law And Jesus Came To Do This.

He Was Also Subjected To SIN Like We Are But He NEVER SINNED.
( Hebrews 2:16, 4:15 )

He Then Died And Pay The Penalty The Law Was Demanding From Every Transgressor.

“Hebrews 9:22 And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission.”

The LAW DEMAND The Blood Of The Transgressor. “Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death;”

And JESUS Paid With His Blood Because The Law Can’t Be Done Away With.

The LAW Is Eternal As God Is Eternal

“Psalms 119:142 Thy righteousness is an everlasting righteousness, and thy law is the truth.”

“Psalms 111:7 The works of his hands are verity and judgment; all his commandments are sure.

111:8 They stand fast for ever and ever, and are done in truth and uprightness.”

Therefore JESUS Has Paid The Penalty And We Are No More Under The Law!

We Are No More Under Condemnation.

BUT STILL PEOPLE HAVE CHOSEN TO BE UNDER THE LAW?

HOW?

Answer: If You Still Transgress The Law, You Are Under The Condemnation Of The Law.

This Jesus Came To Give You Power To Obey The Law.

“Romans 6:1 What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound? 6:2 God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein?”

Therefore

YOU ARE UNDER GRACE IF YOU ACCEPT JESUS CHRIST SACRIFICE AND LIVE HENCEFORTH BY OBEYING THE LAW THROUGH HIS GRACE BECAUSE YOUR PREVIOUS TRANSGRESSIONS HAVE BEEN PAID FULLY BY JESUS AND YOU ARE JUSTIFIED BY FAITH.

HOW THEN SHOULD YOU RETURN TO TRANSGRESS THE LAW AND BE SUBJECT TO CONDEMNATION ( BE UNDER THE LAW ) AGAIN.

YOU ARE STILL UNDER THE LAW IF YOU STILL CONTINUE TO TRANSGRESS THE LAW EVEN IF YOU CLAIM TO ACCEPT JESUS SACRIFICE, YOU ARE STILL UNDER THE LAW BECAUSE YOU ARE STILL TRANSGRESSING.

DON’T BE DECEIVED.

JESUS CAME TO DIE TO PAY THE PENALTY OF YOUR SINS SO THAT YOU WILL LIVE HENCEFORTH IN OBEDIENCE AND NOT DISOBEDIENCE.

THERE IS ONLY SAFETY IN OBEDIENCE.

God Help You Understand So That No One Deceive You And Continue In Sin.

Grace Leads To Obedience And Not Disobedience!!!

Grace Helps You To Obey God So That You Will Not Be Under The Law Again!!!

“Romans 6:1 What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound? 6:2 GOD FORBID. How shall we, that are DEAD TO SIN( 2 Corinthians 5:17 ), LIVE ANY LONGER THEREIN( 1 John 3:4, 6 )?”

“Revelation 22:14 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. 22:15 For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.”

The Two Covenants, Both Require Obedience To God’s Ten Precepts, His Ten Commandments. God’s Law Stands Forever!!!

“Psalms 119:160 Thy word is true from the beginning: and every one of thy righteous judgments endureth for ever.”

“Psalms 111:7 The works of his hands are verity and judgment; all his commandments are sure. 111:8 They stand fast for ever and ever, and are done in truth and uprightness.”

“Psalms 119:142 Thy righteousness is an everlasting righteousness, and thy law is the truth.”

“Proverbs 28:9 He that turneth away his ear from hearing the law, even his prayer shall be abomination.”

“Proverbs 19:16 He that keepeth the commandment keepeth his own soul; but he that despiseth his ways shall die.”

It Is Satan’s Earnest Effort To Blind Men And Lead Them To Perdition.

The Old Covenant Was Made Upon The Condition Of Obedience To God’s Law And It Was Ratified By Animal Sacrifices, The People Promised To Obey God’s Law.

But The New Covenant Was Made This Way: It Is God Now Who Promised To Write His Ten Commandments In Our Hearts And This New Covenant Was Ratified By The Blood Of Christ.

THE NEW COVENANT DOES NOT ABOLISH GOD’S LAW BUT RATHER WRITES THE LAW IN OUR HEARTS.

The New Covenant: “Hebrews 8:10 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:”

“Proverbs 19:16 He that keepeth the commandment keepeth his own soul; but he that despiseth his ways shall die.”

“Romans 7:12 Wherefore the law is holy, and the commandment holy, and just, and good.”

“Romans 3:31 Do we then make void the law through faith? God forbid: yea, we establish the law.”

“Romans 6:1 What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound? 6:2 God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein?”

“Romans 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.”

“Romans 7:8 For without the law SIN WAS DEAD.”

“James 2:10 For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all.

2:11 For he that said, Do not commit adultery, said also, Do not kill. Now if thou commit no adultery, yet if thou kill, thou art become a transgressor of the law. 2:12 So speak ye, and so do, as they that shall be judged by the law of liberty.”

“Ecclesiastes 12:13 Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man.

12:14 For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.”

Through Jesus, God’s mercy was manifested to men; but mercy does not set aside justice. The law reveals the attributes of God’s character, and not a jot or tittle of it could be changed to meet man in his fallen condition. God did not change His law, but He sacrificed Himself, in Christ, for man’s redemption. “God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto Himself.” 2 Corinthians 5:19. The Desire Of Ages 762.1

The law requires righteousness,—a righteous life, a perfect character; and this man has not to give. He cannot meet the claims of God’s holy law. But Christ, coming to the earth as man, lived a holy life, and developed a perfect character. These He offers as a free gift to all who will receive them. His life stands for the life of men. Thus they have remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God. More than this, Christ imbues men with the attributes of God. He builds up the human character after the similitude of the divine character, a goodly fabric of spiritual strength and beauty. Thus the very righteousness of the law is fulfilled in the believer in Christ. God can “be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus.” Romans 3:26. DA 762.2

God’s love has been expressed in His justice no less than in His mercy. Justice is the foundation of His throne, and the fruit of His love. It had been Satan’s purpose to divorce mercy from truth and justice. He sought to prove that the righteousness of God’s law is an enemy to peace. But Christ shows that in God’s plan they are indissolubly joined together; the one cannot exist without the other. “Mercy and truth are met together; righteousness and peace have kissed each other.” Psalm 85:10. DA 762.3

By His life and His death, Christ proved that God’s justice did not destroy His mercy, but that sin could be forgiven, and that the law is righteous, and can be perfectly obeyed. Satan’s charges were refuted. God had given man unmistakable evidence of His love. DA 762.4

Another deception was now to be brought forward. Satan declared that mercy destroyed justice, that the death of Christ abrogated the Father’s law. Had it been possible for the law to be changed or abrogated, then Christ need not have died. But to abrogate the law would be to immortalize transgression, and place the world under Satan’s control. It was because the law was changeless, because man could be saved only through obedience to its precepts, that Jesus was lifted up on the cross. Yet the very means by which Christ established the law Satan represented as destroying it. Here will come the last conflict of the great controversy between Christ and Satan. DA 762.5

That the law which was spoken by God’s own voice is faulty, that some specification has been set aside, is the claim which Satan now puts forward. It is the last great deception that he will bring upon the world. He needs not to assail the whole law; if he can lead men to disregard one precept, his purpose is gained. For “whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all.” James 2:10. By consenting to break one precept, men are brought under Satan’s power. By substituting human law for God’s law, Satan will seek to control the world. This work is foretold in prophecy. Of the great apostate power which is the representative of Satan, it is declared, “He shall speak great words against the Most High, and shall wear out the saints of the Most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand.” Daniel 7:25. DA 763.1

Men will surely set up their laws to counterwork the laws of God. They will seek to compel the consciences of others, and in their zeal to enforce these laws they will oppress their fellow men. DA 763.2

The warfare against God’s law, which was begun in heaven, will be continued until the end of time. Every man will be tested. Obedience or disobedience is the question to be decided by the whole world. All will be called to choose between the law of God and the laws of men. Here the dividing line will be drawn. There will be but two classes. Every character will be fully developed; and all will show whether they have chosen the side of loyalty or that of rebellion. DA 763.3

Then the end will come. God will vindicate His law and deliver His people. Satan and all who have joined him in rebellion will be cut off. Sin and sinners will perish, root and branch, (Malachi 4:1),—Satan the root, and his followers the branches. The word will be fulfilled to the prince of evil, “Because thou hast set thine heart as the heart of God; … I will destroy thee, O covering cherub, from the midst of the stones of fire…. Thou shalt be a terror, and never shalt thou be any more.” Then “the wicked shall not be: yea, thou shalt diligently consider his place, and it shall not be;” “they shall be as though they had not been.” Ezekiel 28:6-19; Psalm 37:10; Obadiah 1:16. DA 763.4

This is not an act of arbitrary power on the part of God. The rejecters of His mercy reap that which they have sown. God is the fountain of life; and when one chooses the service of sin, he separates from God, and thus cuts himself off from life. He is “alienated from the life of God.” Christ says, “All they that hate Me love death.” Ephesians 4:18; Proverbs 8:36. God gives them existence for a time that they may develop their character and reveal their principles. This accomplished, they receive the results of their own choice. By a life of rebellion, Satan and all who unite with him place themselves so out of harmony with God that His very presence is to them a consuming fire. The glory of Him who is love will destroy them. DA 764.1

“Revelation 22:14 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.

22:15 For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.”

MARANATHA…EVEN SO LORD COME( REVELATION 22:20 )

  1. The new covenant does not blot out the law of God. In the old covenant the people made a promise to God that they will keep the law of God , but they failed. Now in the new covenant the law is written in the heart and Christ enables us to keep the law of God.
