This is how I would write the formula for the law of the spirit of life in Christ Yeshua Jesus. Creator Father, in His love and grace, gave His Word (promise, commandments, law) fulfilled in the flesh of Yeshua Jesus…so that when our faith is added to it and put into our heart and mind….then we can walk with Him in His righteous works. In this only Way, we are sanctified (set apart) from the law of sin and death and bondage in this fallen world. That is our HOPE in revelation and manifestation! Our relationship with our perfect, good, righteous Creator is restored! We can again fellowship with Him! He brings us again to righteousness through Yeshua Jesus, the One who saves! What good news! And it is not by my works, but by His spirit working in me. He gets all the glory!
“Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,’ says the Lord Almighty.” Zechariah 4:6
“The Spirit gives life; the flesh counts for nothing. The words I have spoken to you—they are full of the Spirit and life.” John 6:63
“The mind governed by the flesh is death, but the mind governed by the Spirit is life and peace.” Romans 8:6
“But if Christ is in you, then even though your body is subject to death because of sin, the Spirit gives life because of righteousness.” Romans 8:10
“And if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies because of His Spirit who lives in you.” Romans 8:11
“He has made us competent as ministers of a new covenant—not of the letter but of the Spirit; for the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life.” 2 Corinthians 3:6
“So it is written: “The first man Adam became a living being”; the last Adam, a life-giving spirit.” 1 Corinthians 15:45
Do you see it? God in His grace and love gave humans His Word, Commandments, Laws, Righteous Ways…because they needed something to keep them on His narrow road of doing right. The Law could not save them, it could only sow them the Way, literally and prophetically. When Yeshua Jesus paid the penalty of death (as a pure spotless sacrifice for all), there opened a new and living Way! This Way was in the law of the spirit of life in Yeshua Jesus! He fulfilled the promise of the written Law…He is the Word made flesh. Then, He sent His Holy Spirit that we might have a new heart and a new mind where His righteous words and ways can be written right inside us! We are now enabled to walk and live in His Words and Way! Not by our own power (humanism), but by His Spirit and His power and His provision! I just marvel at it all! Yet, it seems to me that so few are taking advantage of this great offer! Hear the Word of the Lord! See, understand, receive deep into your hear and mind, and let the Word and the Spirit grow His fruit in you! (Remember the parable of the sower and the seed in Matthew 13?)
What love is this!!! What opportunity!!! What HOPE!!!
