BREAKING THE LAW TO KEEP THE LAW Matthew 26:3-5 “Then assembled together the chief priests, and the scribes, and the elders of the people, unto the palace of the high priest, who was called Caiaphas, and consulted that they might take Jesus by subtilty, and kill him. But they said, Not on the feast day, […]

“WHERE THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD IS, THERE IS LIBERTY”

“WHERE THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD IS, THERE IS LIBERTY” Of all bondage and slavery in the world, there is none more horrible than the bondage of sin. Tell me of Israel in Egypt preparing their tale of bricks unsuppled with straw; tell me of the slave beneath the lash of his cruel task-master, and I […]

ALLEGORY OF LAW AND GRACE

ALLEGORY OF LAW AND GRACE Galatians 4: 21-30; 5:1 Many who profess faith in Christ also believe that they must do their part by adding their law keeping to Christ’s work. Those who were bewitching the Galatians were teaching just that.  They were not openly denying that salvation is by Christ Jesus, they were doing so […]

“Tell me, ye that desire to be under the law, do you not hear the law?”

“Tell me, ye that desire to be under the law, do you not hear the law?” (Gal. 4:21) The life of the Old Testament Jew, under the law, was so difficult. He was hedged in by a thousand commandments and prohibitions. The forms, laws, ceremonies, and sacrifices were many, and every detail minutely arranged. He […]

A God You Cannot Satisfy, A Law You Cannot Keep . . .

A God You Cannot Satisfy, A Law You Cannot Keep . . . I have tried diligently to preach God as He really is, to sinners as they really are, and to exalt the Lord Jesus Christ as the only Mediator between the holy God and sinful men, the all-glorious Redeemer who accomplished, by Himself, […]

The law is lawfully used as a means of conviction of sin

Posted by on November 28, 2015 at 7:05 am

The law is lawfully used as a means of conviction of sin: for this purpose it was promulgated (established) at Sinai. The law entered, that sin might abound: not to make men more wicked, though occasionally and by abuse it has that effect, but to make them sensible how wicked they are. Having God’s law […]

Law Established

Posted by on November 28, 2015 at 7:03 am

Law Established Romans 3:31 “Do we then make void the law through faith? God forbid: yea, we establish the law.” Faith does not add to salvation but through faith we trust Christ who is our Salvation. We see the grace wherein we stand. Thusly, the law is not made void but in every way established. […]

THE TRUE CHARACTER OF UNBELIEF

Posted by on November 10, 2015 at 12:35 am

THE TRUE CHARACTER OF UNBELIEF In all unbelief there are two things — a good opinion of one’s self and a bad opinion of God. Man’s good opinion of himself makes him think it quite possible to win God’s favor by his own religious performances; and his bad opinion of God makes him unwilling and […]

IF RIGHTEOUSNESS COME BY THE LAW

Posted by on November 10, 2015 at 12:30 am

IF RIGHTEOUSNESS COME BY THE LAW Galatians 2:21 “If righteousness come by the law, then Christ is dead in vain.” The ultimate transgression is at stake when a man turns to the law for righteousness. For when you turn to the law for righteousness then you frustrate the grace of God and deny Christ and […]
