There is a huge war happening among the body of Christ regarding Law and Grace. For years I’ve been trying to find the words to address this perceived conflict because it’s not a conflict at all!
Today as I was meditating and praying over Matthew 5, a huge download of revelation came to me that I CAN’T WAIT to share with you all! It’s a bit time consuming so I will have to give it in bits and pieces. However, today, I am going to leave you with the conclusion of thoughts I believe given to me by the Holy Spirit.
I know…giving you the end, the conclusion before building on the thoughts and truths that lead to it. I want to give you the meat, the marrow, so to say, to suck and chew on for a bit before I go back and lay out the process that brought me here. Then I think it will settle in your spirit better!
DECLARATIONS OF THE BLESSING OF THE LAW
[These are the words that came pouring out as I was praying over and meditating on Matthew 5]
I love the Law because I have the nature of Christ in me. The perfect fulfillment of the Law is in me because I have the righteousness of Christ Jesus in me.
I love the Law and desire to walk in righteousness because that is the nature of Jesus and He is in me; and where I fail is where grace covers me.
I don’t do the things of the Law to be righteous or to earn the Blood of Jesus. I’m already righteous! Righteousness can’t be made or the Blood of Christ earned.
I do the things of the Law because that is the nature of Jesus Christ and He is in me!
For me to be ignorant of the Law of the Lord is to be ignorant of the nature of Christ.
For me to despise the Law is to despise the nature of Christ.
If I despise the Law, the nature of Christ is not in me.
I can not live contrary to the Law because Christ is the fulfillment of the Law and Christ is in me!
I walk in perfect fulfillment of the Law because the nature of Christ is in me!
I can’t wait to share with you what led me to this. So freeing! The Law is not a burden to those who have Christ in them. Grace does not obliterate the Law, it completes the Law!
LAW AND GRACE! The Law is the nature of Jesus, Grace lets us be in fulfillment of it. Wow.
Blessings on your day and as you meditate on the Word of the God.
