Removal of Condemnation (Part 2)
Introduction of Obedience and Regeneration
from the Carnal Mind
Jesus' physical death removed the Law, which was the list
c. Jesus fulfilled the purpose of the Law, which was
to lead us to faith in Christ, the faith Jesus finished authoring
with his death on the cross.
Galatians 3:19 Wherefore then serveth the law? It
was added because of transgressions, till the seed should
come to whom the promise was made; and it was ordained by
angels in the hand of a mediator. 20 Now a mediator is not
a mediator of one, but God is one. 21 Is the law then against
the promises of God? God forbid: for if there had been
a law given which could have given life, verily righteousness
should have been by the law. 22 But the scripture hath
concluded all under sin, that the promise by faith of Jesus
Christ might be given to them that believe. 23 But before
faith came, we were kept under the law, shut up unto the
faith which should afterwards be revealed. 24 Wherefore
the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that
we might be justified by faith. 25 But after that faith
is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster.
Hebrews 12:2 Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher
of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured
the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the
right hand of the throne of God. 3 For consider him that endured
such contradiction of sinners against himself, lest ye be
wearied and faint in your minds. 4 Ye have not yet resisted
unto blood, striving against sin.
Philippians 2:8 And being found in fashion as a man,
he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even
the death of the cross.
Hebrews 5:7 Who in the days of his flesh, when he had
offered up prayers and supplications with strong crying and
tears unto him that was able to save him from death, and was
heard in that he feared; 8 Though he were a Son, yet learned
he obedience by the things which he suffered; 9 And
being made perfect, he became the author of eternal salvation
unto all them that obey him;
The purpose of the Law, from God's perspective knowing that
it would not bring about life through repentance, was to keep
us until Christ and guide us to him. Once Jesus finished authoring
our faith by his obedient death, the purpose of the Law was
fulfilled and the Law was no longer needed.
d. Jesus replaced the Law with a new Law and Covenant
established in perfection by his act of sacrifice, which is
Love God wholly and love others as yourself.
Hebrews 7:11 If therefore perfection were by the Levitical
priesthood, (for under it the people received the law,) what
further need was there that another priest should rise after
the order of Melchisedec, and not be called after the order
of Aaron? 12 For the priesthood being changed, there is
made of necessity a change also of the law.
Hebrews 8:6 But now hath he obtained a more excellent
ministry, by how much also he is the mediator of a better
covenant, which was established upon better promises.
Hebrews 10:9 Then said he, Lo, I come to do thy will,
O God. He taketh away the first, that he may establish
the second. 10 By the which will we are sanctified through
the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all
What is the second Law, the Second Covenant? What is its commandment
Galatians 6:2 Bear ye one another's burdens, and
so fulfil the law of Christ.
James 2:8 If ye fulfil the royal law according to the
scripture, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself, ye
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:
Hebrews 10:16 This is the covenant that I will make
with them after those days, saith the Lord, I will put
my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write
2 Corinthians 3:3 Forasmuch as ye are manifestly declared
to be the epistle of Christ ministered by us, written not
with ink, but with the Spirit of the living God; not in
tables of stone, but in fleshy tables of the heart.
John 13:34 A new commandment I give unto you, That
ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love
one another. 35 By this shall all men know that ye are
my disciples, if ye have love one to another.
II John1:4 I rejoiced greatly that I found of thy children
walking in truth, as we have received a commandment from
the Father. 5 And now I beseech thee, lady, not as though
I wrote a new commandment unto thee, but that which we
had from the beginning, that we love one another. 6
And this is love, that we walk after his commandments. This
is the commandment, That, as ye have heard from the beginning,
ye should walk in it.
I Timothy 1:1 Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the
commandment of God our Saviour, and Lord Jesus Christ, which
is our hope;
5 Now the end of the commandment is charity
out of a pure heart, and of a good conscience, and of faith
I John 3:18 My little children, let us not love in
word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth. 19 And
hereby we know that we are of the truth, and shall assure
our hearts before him. 20 For if our heart condemn us, God
is greater than our heart, and knoweth all things. 21 Beloved,
if our heart condemn us not, then have we confidence toward
God. 22 And whatsoever we ask, we receive of him, because
we keep his commandments, and do those things that are pleasing
in his sight. 23 And this is his commandment, That we
should believe on the name of his Son Jesus Christ, and love
one another, as he gave us commandment. 24 And he that
keepeth his commandments dwelleth in him, and he in him. And
hereby we know that he abideth in us, by the Spirit which
he hath given us.
I John 4:7 Beloved, let us love one another: for love
is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth
God. 8 He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.
9 In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because
that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we
might live through him. 10 Herein is love, not that we loved
God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation
for our sins. 11 Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also
to love one another. 12 No man hath seen God at any time.
If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and his love is
perfected in us. 13 Hereby know we that we dwell in him, and
he in us, because he hath given us of his Spiritů.18 There
is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because
fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in
love. 19 We love him, because he first loved us. 20 If a man
say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar: for
he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can
he love God whom he hath not seen? 21 And this commandment
have we from him, That he who loveth God love his brother
I John 5:1 Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ
is born of God: and every one that loveth him that begat loveth
him also that is begotten of him. 2 By this we know that we
love the children of God, when we love God, and keep his
commandments. 3 For this is the love of God, that
we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.
In fact, this was the essence of all of the old Law and the
Matthew 22:37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt
love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy
soul, and with all thy mind. 38 This is the first and
great commandment. 39 And the second is like unto it, Thou
shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. 40 On these two
commandments hang all the law and the prophets.
Luke 10:25 And, behold, a certain lawyer stood up,
and tempted him, saying, Master, what shall I do to inherit
eternal life? 26 He said unto him, What is written in the
law? how readest thou? 27 And he answering said, Thou shalt
love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy
soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and
thy neighbour as thyself. 28 And he said unto him,
Thou hast answered right: this do, and thou shalt live.
So, Jesus also fulfilled the Law in this way as well; when
he obeyed God and laid down his life for mankind, he carried
out the sum of the Law and the prophets.
John 14:15 If ye love me, keep my commandments.
John 14:21 He that hath my commandments, and keepeth
them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall
be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest
myself to him.
John 14:31 But that the world may know that I love
the Father; and as the Father gave me commandment, even so
I do. Arise, let us go hence.
John 15:9 As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved
you: continue ye in my love.
