Response to Old and New Testament - 11

 
Consolidated and shared by the brethren for those called at this point in time:

Old and New Testament - 13

The Spiritual Man is given the strength to follow the word of God according to His direction.

1 Cor. 2:15 “But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man. 16For who hath known
the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ.”

Phil. 4:13 “I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.”

The direction of God of His words is derived from “demonstration and circumstances” in the life of our Lord Jesus Christ as man,
the model showing the way by example. This is the meaning of His being called the chief corner stone the Apostles and Prophets
as “foundation” of the truth.

Eph. 2:20 “And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone;”

The following examples will show how the “spirit” and not just the “letter” of the word will fulfill the purpose.

1. The law on Sabbath is not abolished. However, as demonstrated by Jesus and His Apostles, they did not follow it to the
“letter,” but given a much deeper meaning that is hidden from the understanding of the Natural Man (1 Cor. 2:14). Sabbath is
God’s gift of “rest for the soul” that means “salvation.” That is why Jesus said, “I am the Lord even of the Sabbath.” And
“Sabbath” is an eternal sign of God with His chosen. “Six days work” refers to man’s own work for his salvation, which is
indeed a “heavy burden” that Jesus extends His invitation:

Matt. 11:28“ Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest [directed to those who
realize the heavy burden of working for own salvation] . 29 Take my yoke [cross] upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek
and lowly in heart [an invitation to humble oneself to receive the gift of faith] : and ye shall find rest unto your
souls [not rest for the body for it means salvation of the soul] . 30 For my yoke is easy [truth symbolized by the
cross] , and my burden is light [with God’s grace and mercy truth can be ‘carried’] . ”

2. The Natural Man’s understanding of the law “Thou shalt not commit adultery” is limited to the “letter,” meaning, to
simply remain faithful to the spouse and to avoid any waywardness with the opposite sex. This is “cleanliness on the outside”
that our Lord told the Scribes and Pharisees (Matt. 23:26 ). However, God gives a much deeper meaning. After a Natural Man
received the Holy Spirit, the promised inheritance, he is endowed with SPIRITUAL LIFE aside from the PHYSICAL LIFE. This
is “born again” (John 3:3) and the Natural Man is converted into a Spiritual Man (1 Cor. 2:15 -16) that this particular law
should apply to SPIRITUAL LIFE as well. Here, the chosen becomes the spiritual “wife” of God who is the spiritual “husband.”

Jer. 3:14 “Turn, O backsliding children, saith the LORD; for I am married unto you : and I will take you one of a
city, and two of a family…”

Isa. 54:5 “ For thy Maker is thine husband ; the LORD of hosts …”

The “seeds” being planted by God (the spiritual husband) unto the chosen (the spiritual wife) is the TRUTH in the word
(Luke 8:11 ). The “marriage” bears “children” referring to the fruit of the Spirit:

Gal. 5:22 “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, 23Meekness,
temperance: against such there is no law.”
