Did Grace Replace the Law

“Grace” is unmerited or undeserved favor.  Though “grace” is often the subject of Sunday sermons, the term is usually misunderstood and misrepresented.  Psalm 89:2 states that the world was formed upon the foundation of grace.  The Hebrew word used in this verse and throughout the Old Testament for “grace” or “mercy” is “chesed.”  This term appears over 240 times in the Old Testament to explain how the Creator relates to His creation.  Grace is not a New Testament idea!  Somehow, it has become a mainstream Christian belief that God has changed to now accept people through grace when they were once accepted by obedience to the Law of Moses.  The Elohim of grace has been incorrectly portrayed as dealing with people differently at different times.  This demonic idea insinuates that what was wrong to do during the “dispensation of the law” is no longer a sin because Christians are now “under grace.”  The doctrine of “dispensationalism” was made popular by the Scofield Reference Bible and is now ingrained in the mind of most church leaders.  The word “dispensation” appears only four times in the KJV and never to infer that there are different periods of YHWH’s temperament.  The Zondervan Pictorial Bible Dictionary says, “The modern theological use of the term is not in Scripture.”  There is no such thing as an “age of grace” or the “dispensation of grace.”

Noah, Abraham, Moses and others all found “chesed” or “grace” in the eyes of YHWH.  Their belief was accredited to them as righteousness.  From creation, salvation has always been “by grace through faith,” Ephesians 4:23.  Those who put their trust in the Mighty One of Israel during Old Testament times were granted eternal life through chesed.  The Law of Moses was not given as an instrument of salvation.  Obedience to the Biblical commands cannot redeem anyone.  The Law of Moses was given by the Almighty to explain how a person should relate to Him and other people.  The Law defines sin and sets a standard for righteous behavior.  According to Romans 3:23, a person who sins is under the death penalty of sin until the gift of amazing grace is accepted.  This means that the entire world is “under the law” until they accept the Creator’s chesed and are then placed “under grace.”  A person is saved by grace through faith in the shed blood of Messiah and then should live a life of obedience to the Law.  “Sin shall not have dominion over you because you are not under law but under grace.  What then?  Shall we sin because we are not under law but under grace?  Heaven forbid!” -  Romans 6:14-15.

Grace doesn’t replace the Law.  The Law doesn’t replace grace.  The two work together to transform lives.  Who can you share this truth with today?

A good reminder

Do You Have to Keep Torah

It’s easy to make the mistake and assume that everyone has to obey the Torah exactly as you do. This is probably one of the biggest error of our faith. The Torah is a liberal document of freedom that allows many various interpretations. We are accustomed to the tight knit theologies that tell us exactly […]

How to love YHWH

Many people continue in sin or excuse their sin because they reason that they are inherently sinful.  This is like a person who is supposed to be on a diet but overeats during the day because of one small slip up.  The thought is, “well I might as well give in to this sin and […]

Power Over Sin

Sin has a powerful, magnetic pull.  The members of the body are prone to seek satisfaction. The gates of the mouth, ears, and eyes only want what feels good.  These gates are fed by the five senses of touch, taste, smell, sound, and sight.  We must be careful not to allow these openings to rule […]

The 4 Cups of the Seder

A Seder is a special commemorative meal that is held in the spring time and remembers the events surrounding the exodus from Egypt. Traditional Seders include bitter herbs, matzah, and four cups of wine. These four glasses of wine are each symbolic of statements. These cups tell the Passover story and vividly remind us that […]

The Leper Messiah

It has been suggested that there is a possibility that the Messiah was stricken with the horrible skin disease spoken of in this Torah portion.  Modern translations refer to this disorder as at type of “leprosy.”  Could Y’shua have taken upon Himself the infirmities of mankind in the form of leprosy?  The disease in our […]
