Did HaMashiach do away with the law?
Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets; I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill. For verily I say unto you, till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled. Matt. 5:17-18
If you look outside your window heaven and earth have not passed, so therefore neither has the law
Are we under the law?
For ye are not under law, but under grace. What then? shall we sin, because we are not under law, but under grace? ALHYM forbid (NO). Romans 6:14-15
You are not under the law, but you are under grace, but you still shall not sin. So, we need to figure out what is grace and what is sin, since it says we are under grace but shall not sin.... hmmm
What is grace?
The grace of ALHYM is what appeared to all men teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly in the present world. Titus 2:11
The only way man can live soberly, righteously, and godly in the present world is by establishing the law as Paul stated in Romans 3:31
And now for a little while grace have been shewed from YHWH, to give us a remnant to escape, and to give us a nail in his holy place, that our ALHYM may lighten our eyes, and give us a little reviving in our bondage. Ezra 9:8
Here in Ezra 9:8, it is basically saying while we are in our captivity for a little while grace has been shown to us from YHWH to
give us a remnant to escape
give us a nail in his holy land
What is sin?
Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law. 1 John 3:4
So, sin is the transgression of the law.
For as many as have sinned without law shall also perish without law: and as many as have sinned in the law shall be judged by the law; for not the hears of the law are just before Go, but the doers of the law shall be justified. Romans 2:12-13
I thought we were under faith and not the doings of the law?
Where is boasting then? It is excluded. By what law? of works? Nay (NO!) but by the law of faith. Romans 3:27
Paul is stating this because in Romans 2:17;23 he stated that the Jews (Israelites) would boast about YHWH and the law but was not following what they were boasting about. So, in Romans 3:27 he goes on to say that boasting is not excluded through the law or through works. Boasting is excluded by the law of faith. Then he says:
Therefore, we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the doing of the law. Romans 3:28
So basically, a man is upheld by faith without doing the law.
But then he goes on to say....
Seeing it is one Elohim, which shall justify the circumcision by faith, and uncircumcision through faith. Do we then make void the law through faith? God forbid (NO): yea, we ESTABLISH THE LAW. Romans 3:30-31
So just because your justified by faith, just because he shall justify the circumcision by faith and just because he will justify the uncircumcision through faith. Paul said you shall not make the law VOID THROUGH FAITH. He said:
WE SHALL ESTABLISH THE LAW!
Since Paul stated that we are justified by faith and that circumcision and uncircumcision should be justified by faith, but we still shall establish the law. Now we need to know what is faith?
What is Faith?
Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Hebrews 11:1
Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of ALHYM, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear. Hebrews 11:3
This is why when James wrote the letter to the 12 tribes of Israel scattered abroad James 1:1, he stressed to them to have FAITH by obeying the word of YHWH by being doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves James 1:22-23
FAITH PROVES ITSELF BY WORKS
What is love?
For this is the love of ALHYM, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous. 1 John 5:3
And this is love that we walk after his commandments. This is the commandments, that, as ye have heard from the beginning, ye should walk in it. 2 John 1:6
If you love me keep my commandments. And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you forever. John 14:15-16
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 14:21
So, as we see, the love of YHWH is that we keep his commandments
