Thirteen years as an Alcoholic, my friend, mentor and pastor shared how in his younger days battling this terrible addiction. He would try to stop drinking and would fail time after time. With guilt, shame, embarrassment, he would come to God. God he would say, “I drink because I want to, if you would take the want to away I wouldn’t drink.” The desire of Alcohol was so strong that when he would see a simple beer commercial on Television his mouth would water. God answered his prayer by giving him a Revelation of “2 Corinthians 5:21 For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.” That Revelation that God was looking at him through the Cross of Jesus. He began to see himself the way God saw him. Righteous because of what Jesus had done not because of what he had done. As he came into agreement with Grace the strength of sin lost its power against him.
Rom14:23(b) For Whatsoever Is Not Of Faith Is Sin.
Gal 3:12 And The Law (The Mosaic Law/Curse) Is Not Of Faith: (After Calvary) but, The Man That Doeth Them Shall Live In Them. (Guilty Of All= James 2:10)
James 2:10 For whosoever shall keep the whole Law, (Mosaic Law) and Yet Offend In One Point, He Is Guilty Of All. (According To The Mosaic Law)
Going back under the Law is when you do something according to the Mosaic Law, thinking that it justifies you in Gods sight and causes God to release his blessings to you. You are rejecting Grace and have put yourself under the curse.
Gal 3:10 For as many as are of The Works Of The Law (The Mosaic Law) Are Under The Curse: (The Law Of Sin & Death)
1 Cor 15:56 The Sting (Poison) Of Death (Satan, Curse) Is Sin; (Leavened, Rebellion To Grace, The Devils Weapon) And The Strength Of Sin (Leavened, Rebellion To Grace, The Devils Weapon) Is The Law. (The Law Of Sin And Death With The Mosaic Law After Calvary)= (The Strong Mans House)=(Sins Ability To Condemn You Is The Law) (The Power Of Sin Over You Is Through The Law & The Power Of The Law Over You Is Your Words.) = (To Stop The Power Of Sin Over You, Don’t Agree With The Law, A Lie.)=(Agree With Grace, The Truth)
Prov 18:21 Death (The Law Of Sin & Death) And Life (The Law Of The Spirit Of Life, Grace) are in the Power Of The Tongue: (Our Words) and they that love it Shall Eat (Speak) the Fruit Thereof. (Curse Or Blessing) = (Law Or Grace) = (Lies Or Truth)
Matt 12:37 For by Thy Words (Agreement With Grace) thou shalt be justified, and by Thy Words (Agreement With Law) thou shalt be Condemned.(By The Law Not God)
James 2:9 But if ye have Respect To Persons, (Under The Mosaic Law/ Curse) ye commit Sin, (Rebellion Against Grace) and are Convinced (Convicted) Of The Law (Condemnation comes by The Mosaic Law/ Curse) As Transgressors.) = (Romans 2:12 (b) And as many as have sinned in the law shall be Judged By The Law; (By The Law Not God)
Amos 3:3 Can two walk together, Except They Be Agreed? (Law Or Grace)
James 5:9 Grudge not one against another, brethren, Lest Ye Be Condemned: (Fall Back Under The Law) behold, The Judge (The Law, Satan) standeth before The Door. (The Mouth)= (Psalms 141:3 Set a watch, O Lord, before My Mouth; Keep The Door Of My Lips.
Matt 6:24 No man can serve Two Masters: (Law Or Grace) for either he will Hate The One, And Love The Other; (Law Or Grace) or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God (Grace) and Mammon. (Law)
1 Cor 11:28 But let a man Examine (Discern, Search The Scripture) himself, and so let him Eat Of That Bread, (Read The Written Word) and Drink Of That Cup. (Receive What The Spirit Reveals)
1 Cor 11:29 For he that eateth and drinketh Unworthily, (Irreverently) (Not Receiving What The Spirit Reveals, Not Receiving Our Righteousness, Not Agreeing With Grace) eateth and drinketh Damnation (Destroyed for lack of knowledge of Grace) to himself, Not Discerning (By The Spirit) the Lord’s Body. (Flesh, Bread, What The Written Word Says About Grace Provided By The Sacrifice Of The Body Of Jesus At Calvary)= (Col 1:22 Holy Unblameable and Unreproveable in his sight)
1 Cor 11:30 For This Cause (Not Reading The Written Word & Not Receiving What The Spirit Has Discerned & Revealed About Grace Provided By The Sacrifice Of The Body Of Jesus At Calvary) Many are Weak (In Faith) and Sickly (In Body) among you, and many Sleep. (Die)
1 Cor 11:31 For if we would Judge =(GR1252 =Discern) ourselves, we should not be Judged.=(GR2919 =(Condemned, By The Devil Through The Law) 32 But when we are Judged, = (GR2919 =(Condemned, By The Devil Through The Law) we are Chastened (Instructed By The Word) of the Lord, that we should not be Condemned (By The Devil Through The Law) With The World. (Those Under The Law) (Don’t be conscious of the sin but be conscious of the Cross)(Be Aware of What Jesus did at the Cross, Not what you have done)
