Christ didn’t redeem us from the law, He redeemed us from the curse of the law. The consequences of breaking the law in the old testament was grievous; many of those who violated were even sentenced to death. When Christ died for our sins, He took the place of the consequences or curses attached to breaking God’s laws, so that when the consequence tries to rise against you for breaking the law, Christ rises against it with His grace. That’s why the bible says, “Shall we continue to sin that grace may abound? God forbid!(Rom 6:1)”. Jesus will always rise up to intercede for our disobedience to the law, but rebellious people would have to carry their cross after a while(Rom 1:28).
So that’s it! He became an intermediary between the law and the consequences of breaking the law. For instance, the devourer may not come near your resources if you don’t pay tithe, but you’d loose the multidimensional benefits of tithing. Tithing is still God’s law for abundance; you’d get the benefits if you obey it, and you’d be at the mercy of Christ’s intercession if you don’t. Yes, the bible says “we’re no longer under the law”, but does it mean we now have license to kill or steal? In my view, the only reason why you should not be a tither is if you can be a killer and a thief. Because it’s the same law that says “thou shall not kill” that says “bring all your tithe”.
That’s how far we’d go on today’s Timely Note. But take these last words; CHRIST WILL ALWAYS BE MY INTERCESSOR, ESPECIALLY IN MY DISOBEDIENCE; BUT INSTEAD OF LIVING AT THE MERCY OF HIS INTERCESSION, IS IT NOT BETTER TO OBEY A SIMPLE LAW? Have a most fruitful day, in Jesus precious name!
And hey, don’t forget to “like” it. And if you really like it, please share it!
