Hi Truster
Jest because you say so dose not make it true what scriptures do you base your statement.

Love and peace
Dave

I'm not discussing this Dave, because nobody could convince me, so I don't attempt to convince others. If the Almighty wants you to understand then He will provide the understanding.

Hi Truster
It's a shame you don't wish to continue our discussion It may have bean mutually beneficial so I will return the thread to it's original question the law.

Why did God give the law to Moses What did our Lord mean when he said.

 Luk 24:44  And he said unto them, These are the words which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the psalms, concerning me.

Was the law a prophecy about Christ if so how did he fulfil it.

Love and Peace

Hi Tes
Thank you for your post always nice to receive a little encouragement thanks again.

so how did the Law relate to Christ If I am right and Israel is Adam the the Law may well be the tree of life by obedience to it Adam would live.
In the same vain the law applied to the last Adam which of course is Christ who complied with the whole law and was without sin and in so doing received eternal life.

Love and Peace

Please accept my apologies for not reading back beyond this page, but to go forwards...may already have been mentioned, that Christ came to fulfill the law not abolish it.

The law is unachievable to keep on your own.  With Christ you are able to complete the law as in, you have the prize that fulfilling the law brings to you.

Run the race as to win.  This is what you do when your faith walk is with Christ,your prize is the crown of life through Him.

Law alone brings death,because its impossible to keep.
Law with Christ brings fulfillment and reconciliation to our Father now.

The law and sacrifices to bring you back into being able to be clean and in the presence of God.

Christ was the final sacrificial lamb that bought your atonement.  Washed in His blood alone is what bridged the chasm.

I could go on but have to nip out, hope this makes sense and relevant here.

Be blessed and be a blessing always.
God is Spirit,  God is Love. 
Be the Spirit led Ambassadors for Christ that you are meant to be.
Your words and actions should produce life not death.
Love never fails.

This very true we don't have to do bad things only think them is enough to break the law but we are not under the law but under grace yes amazing grace

and when we are in Christ we take on his righteousness and this is what the father see's our sins forgiven through the blood of Christ this dose not mean we can go on sinning I believe we should strive to keep the laws of Love to the best of our ability but if we fail and repent we have forgiveness in Christ.

Love and Peace

Hi
Long time since we looked in on this thread I was reading something in Isaiah which made me think.

Isa 1:11  To what purpose is the multitude of your sacrifices unto me? saith the LORD: I am full of the burnt offerings of rams, and the fat of fed beasts; and I delight not in the blood of bullocks, or of lambs, or of he goats.
Isa 1:12  When ye come to appear before me, who hath required this at your hand, to tread my courts?
Isa 1:13  Bring no more vain oblations; incense is an abomination unto me; the new moons and sabbaths, the calling of assemblies, I cannot away with; it is iniquity, even the solemn meeting.
Isa 1:14  Your new moons and your appointed feasts my soul hateth: they are a trouble unto me; I am weary to bear them.
Isa 1:15  And when ye spread forth your hands, I will hide mine eyes from you: yea, when ye make many prayers, I will not hear: your hands are full of blood.
Isa 1:16  Wash you, make you clean; put away the evil of your doings from before mine eyes; cease to do evil;
Isa 1:17  Learn to do well; seek judgment, relieve the oppressed, judge the fatherless, plead for the widow.
   


It seams strange that God is not happy with Israels sacrifices he actually says he hates there feasts and yet all these things were required under the law os Moses.

Do you think Israel had misread the law what it meant were the sacrifices only a shadow of what was to come which was Christ.

Luk 24:44  And he said unto them, These are the words which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the psalms, concerning me.
   


Of course it was Israel who sacrificed the lamb of God what about the other animals what did they represent????

Love and Peace

Dave,
        You have the answer ib v 17.
Through out the bible we see that God is not interested in outwould show but in what a worshipper means/intends.
So in Isa 11 v 1-9 you have God discripeing a rebellious Israel, in v10-16 he is pointing out that offerings of unrepentant sinners is not accepted by God.

There is no hidden meaning here it is a plain and blunt message.

If you want to worship God you Must live a lifethat honours God. Godwill notacceptofferings from unrepented sinners.
