Law Is For the Flesh

We need to correctly define our walk.

Galatians 5

18 But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law.

There are some who walk in the spirit, but choose to obey the law.

This is ok but not necessary, and it can become a burden, considering there are 613 commandments, not just 10.

There are some who walk in the flesh, and choose to ignore the law, claiming they are in the spirit when they are not.

These people are deceived and in rebellion, and need to repent.

The law is designed for them, to teach, and to guide them into righteous behavior, and hopefully into a walk in the spirit.

If you are walking in the spirit, you will automatically obey whatever laws are relevant to the situation you are in.

Acts of flesh – if you are guilty of ANY of these, then you are walking in the flesh

19 The acts of the flesh are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery;

20 idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions

21 and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like. Gal 5:19-21

Fruit of the Spirit – you need to demonstrate ALL of these, not just a few, to be in the spirit

22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,

23 gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.

24 Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. Gal 5: 22-24

Sowing and reaping spiritually

Galatians 6

7 Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows.

8 Whoever sows to please their flesh, from the flesh will reap destruction; whoever sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life.

So, if you are truly, 100% walking in the Spirit, then obeying the law is not compulsory, because obeying God will be  joy to you, and you will seek to please Him automatically.

But, if you are walking in the flesh, then the law is there for you to obey, and learn from, until you can have a change of heart, and walk in the spirit.

  2. 2~14~2019 on Yahweh’s Green Earth Psalm 24:1
    Yahshua the Son of Yahweh Returns VERY SOON! PRAY NOW to be SAVED and SEALED in THEM. Revelation 14:1
    HalleluYah! Hebrew: “Praise ye Yah!”

    The Bible has many verses about Yahweh’s laws. One of them from King David is in Psalm 105:43 – 45: “And He brought forth His people with joy, and His chosen with gladness: And gave them the lands of the heathen: and they inherited the labor of the people, That they might observe His statutes, and keep His laws. HalleluYah.” Holy Name Bible

    The Jewish people kept/keep reminders of His laws in front of their eyes. If important to them, then I believe it is vital for us today.
    Concerning what we REAP? I used to tell my children that whatever we sow will usually return to us “with interest”.

    ETERNAL SURVIVAL BLESSINGS FOR YAHWEH’S SAINTS!

  3. Good article. This needs to be taught continually. When they had the laws in Israel, God said to repeat them continually and to chew on and meditate on them so that they got into your heart and were not just in your head.

    “This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you[c] shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success” (Joshua 1:8).

    Those who are born of the Spirit now have that Law in their hearts and desire to do it. Many people don’t have God’s Law in their hearts and don’t desire to obey God because of that, because we value the things in our hearts, and whatever we value we hold in our hearts. If there was more teaching on how to value God’s Word or His Law, there would be more christians who had an actual living relationship with God. As it is, there is a lot more teaching on how to get more and how to keep what you already have than there is on meditating on God’s Word and awakening His Law (ie. the desire to do His will) in your heart.

    As the Bible makes clear, God wants the Law (His WORD) not in outward religious works but in our hearts so that we then have a desire to do His WILL as it was with Jesus: “Sacrifice and offering You did not desire; my ears You have opened. Burnt offering and sin offering You did not require. Then I said, ‘Behold, I come; in the scroll of the book it is written of me. I delight to do Your will, oh my God, and Your law is within my heart” (Psalm 40:6-8).
