The Law of Christ and the Commandments of God

2023-09-01 00:35

Many people in the world claim that there is no need to keep the Sabbath and Passover because they are Old Testament laws. However, God testifies that he did not completely abolish the Old Testament law, that is, the Mosaic law, but translated it into the law of Christ.

1 Co 9:20 ... To those under the law I became like one under the law (though I myself am not under the law)

Here, "those under the law" indicate the Jews. In the Old Testament times, God gave the Israelites His law through Moses. So, the Jews in the time of Apostle Paul were all under the law of Moses.

1 Co 9:21 To those not having the law I became like one not having the law (though I am not free from God's law but am under Christ's law), so as to win those not having the law.

However, Apostle Paul said that he was not a person who keping the law of Moses, but a person who keping the law of Christ. These lessons show that we who live in the New Testament era must likewise keep the law of Christ.

Heb 7:11-12 If perfection could have been attained through the Levitical priesthood (for on the basis of it the law was given to the people), why was there still need for another priest to come one in the order of Melchizedek, not in the order of Aaron? For when there is a change of the priesthood, there must also be a change of the law.

Just as the order of Aaron in the Old Testament was changed into the order of Melchizedek in the New Testament, the law, the method of offering sacrifices, was also changed from the Law of Moses to the Law of Christ.

Mt 5:17 "Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them."

Jesus gave us perfect the law of Christ because we cannot obtain salvation through the law of Moses. In other words, the old covenant was fulfilled by the new covenant. Therefore, it is a wrong claim that because the law was abolished, there is no need to keep it in the New Testament era.

Isa 51:7-8 "Hear me, you who know what is right, you people who have my law in your hearts: Do not fear the reproach of men or be terrified by their insults. For the moth will eat them up like a garment; the worm will devour them like wool. But my righteousness will last forever, my salvation through all generations."

Rev 14:12 This calls for patient endurance on the part of the saints who obey God's commandments and remain faithful to Jesus.

God said that God's people are those who keep God's commandments and engrave God's law in their hearts. In other words, it refers to those who keep the law of Christ.

1 Jn 2:3-4 We know that we have come to know him if we obey his commands. The man who says, “I know him,” but does not do what he commands is a liar, and the truth is not in him.

The Sabbath and the Passover are representatives of the law of God. God has granted a new law of Christ, but those who claim that it has been abolished because it is the Old Testament law are those who do not know God and prove to themselves that they are not God's people. Let us all become those who are recognized as God's people by keeping the law of Christ with patience until the end.

    The Sabbath and Passover observed by the Church of God are not the laws of the Old Testament, but the laws of the New Covenant

    Today many claim to know God and love God. How absurd it is!! Christ teaches that we have to keep his commands if we truly love him. Those who claim to know God and do not do what he commanded them to do are liars. Through these words we can know who they are. They are merely liars and cannot receive salvation. If we love God, we must obey God and keep his commands. And his commands are not burdensome.
