God's perfect law


Dear reader! There might be a deep secret revealed in this posting. Thus, read it carefully! What is God's law? What is the law that instructs believers via the Holy Spirit? Let us read from the Romans and understand the basics:

Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, 2 because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit who gives life has set you free from the law of sin and death. 3 For what the law was powerless to do because it was weakened by the flesh, God did by sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh to be a sin offering. And so he condemned sin in the flesh, 4 in order that the righteous requirement of the law might be fully met in us, who do not live according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.
5 Those who live according to the flesh have their minds set on what the flesh desires; but those who live in accordance with the Spirit have their minds set on what the Spirit desires. 6 The mind governed by the flesh is death, but the mind governed by the Spirit is life and peace. 7 The mind governed by the flesh is hostile to God; it does not submit to God's law, nor can it do so. Romans.8


For you see, the mind governed by the Spirit is life and peace! But without Spirit the mind is governed by the flesh. Thus, by being a child of God, the mind is governed by God. But sin always follows everywhere we go - but via forgiveness of sins, we clean them away. It's the Spirit who points out all sin that makes our conscience guilty.

Now, let us read carefully from the Book of Moses and Joshua about the laws of the old covenant. Please notice that between Mount Ebal and Gerizim, there's the famous place called Shechem. This is how it goes:

Moses and the elders of Israel commanded the people: "Keep all these commands that I give you today. 2 When you have crossed the Jordan into the land the Lord your God is giving you, set up some large stones and coat them with plaster. 3 Write on them all the words of this law when you have crossed over to enter the land the Lord your God is giving you, a land flowing with milk and honey, just as the Lord, the God of your ancestors, promised you. 4 And when you have crossed the Jordan, set up these stones on Mount Ebal, as I command you today, and coat them with plaster. 5 Build there an altar to the Lord your God, an altar of stones. Do not use any iron tool on them. 6 Build the altar of the Lord your God with fieldstones and offer burnt offerings on it to the Lord your God. 7 Sacrifice fellowship offerings there, eating them and rejoicing in the presence of the Lord your God. 8 And you shall write very clearly all the words of this law on these stones you have set up." Deuteronomy.27

30 Then Joshua built on Mount Ebal an altar to the Lord, the God of Israel, 31 as Moses the servant of the Lord had commanded the Israelites. He built it according to what is written in the Book of the Law of Moses-an altar of uncut stones, on which no iron tool had been used. On it they offered to the Lord burnt offerings and sacrificed fellowship offerings. 32 There, in the presence of the Israelites, Joshua wrote on stones a copy of the law of Moses. 33 All the Israelites, with their elders, officials and judges, were standing on both sides of the ark of the covenant of the Lord, facing the Levitical priests who carried it. Both the foreigners living among them and the native-born were there. Half of the people stood in front of Mount Gerizim and half of them in front of Mount Ebal, as Moses the servant of the Lord had formerly commanded when he gave instructions to bless the people of Israel. 34 Afterward, Joshua read all the words of the law-the blessings and the curses-just as it is written in the Book of the Law. 35 There was not a word of all that Moses had commanded that Joshua did not read to the whole assembly of Israel, including the women and children, and the foreigners who lived among them. Joshua.8


Please notice, that this was the old covenant. However, Joshua was figuratively fulfilling the law Moses had given. But our saviour Jesus Christ fulfilled the law completely! So let's read the rest, let's read the promises of the new covenant:

6 I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh. 27 And I will put my Spirit in you and move you to follow my decrees and be careful to keep my laws. Ezekiel 36

33 "This is the covenant I will make with the people of Israel
after that time," declares the Lord.
"I will put my law in their minds
and write it on their hearts.

I will be their God,
and they will be my people.
Jeremiah.31


Turn the heart upside down and have a look at the left and right ventricles from the image below, pointed by the numbers 9 and 10. Let the number 10 be the Mount Ebal and number 9 the Mount Gerizim (Shechem between them). So the israelites figuratively wrote God's law into the 'hearth'. That was the old covenant - pointing to the new one.

Heart

For you see, the law was written on the stoned hearts in the presence of the Israelites. That is, with the real presense of people who have the Holy Spirit:

32 There, in the presence of the Israelites, Joshua wrote on stones a copy of the law of Moses. Joshua.8

Otherwise, it's impossible to receive the law (which is spiritual) into the heart of a man! In other words, you need to meet or call a person having the true apostolic faith. And not just anyone claiming to have the apostolic faith, but such a one, who really has it, be it a Gentile, a woman (although public women priesthood is ungodly, such as women pastors preaching in churches!), a man or an Israelite. Also you should notice, that the stones were uncut, without being modified by a tool. That is, the heart must not be uncorrupted. It has to be the complete heart - a man must repent with all his heart! Partial repentance is impossible.

He built it according to what is written in the Book of the Law of Moses - an altar of uncut stones, on which no iron tool had been used. Joshua.8:31
