- If the Law of God has been "nailed to the cross," why does the Most High tell us clearly that when Christ returns to this Earth to rule, that SAME law will go forth to the rest of the world?
Isa 2:3 Many people shall come and say, "Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, To the house of the God of Jacob; He will teach us His ways, And we shall walk in His paths." For out of Zion (Jerusalem) shall go forth the law, And the word of the LORD from Jerusalem. 4 He shall judge between the nations, And rebuke many people;
Mic 42 Many nations shall come and say, "Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, To the house of the God of Jacob; He will teach us His ways, And we shall walk in His paths." For out of Zion the law shall go forth, And the word of the LORD from Jerusalem. 3 He shall judge between many peoples, And rebuke strong nations afar off;
Our Creator repeats this twice for us and tells us that His Holy law, which is active today, will continue after our Messiah returns, and will go out and be the rule by which the nations are judged and corrected. Today, we would do well to realize that if Christ's death truly "did away with the Most High's laws," then why would they be back, and going out to the physical people and nations after Christ's return?
The Most High's law is a reflection of His mind and character, as it is of Christ. We are to be conformed, BY obeying God's LAW, and with God's spirit working in us, into the very image and character of Christ. The law of God stands now and will abide forever (in reflection of action and thought) because God abides forever, and the Most High's law simply reflects His mind!
- Keep in mind that oftentimes, when Paul and others are referring to the "law," they are talking about the sacrificial laws that Christ's sacrifice did away with, but NOT the spiritual laws of the Most High... i.e. commandments and spiritual principles.
