Galatians & The Law–I sincerely PRAY this brings understanding to someone

Book of Galatians is a stumbling block for Christians today because they don’t understand which law Paul was referring to in his letter to the Galatians. People wrongly interpret this letter as if to say Paul said that the TEN COMMANDMENTS ended or were changed. What Paul was saying was that the Galatians had wandered from the truth that he had first taught them in favor of listening to judaizing teachers from Jerusalem who insisted they should still be observing ceremonial laws. Those teachers argued that Paul was inferior to other Apostles and they insisted that the Law of Moses was still binding and necessary for justification. This is where the confusion is.

There were those that taught against the instructions of Yeshua. In Galatians, Paul speaks of “Law of Moses”or “Book of the Law” (Mosaic Law) and Book of the Covenant. Paul was instructing them that they are not saved by keeping the Law of Moses. In Chapter 3 he says they were placing themselves under the “curse of the law” (MOSAIC LAW) by trying to observe everything in it. In Chapter 5 Paul stated that they were “entangled with yoke of bondage”. Mosaic Law, Law of Moses were “ordinances” and what was written in it was “against us” or “contrary to us”. This is not the same as the Ten Commandments.

The Ten Commandments, on the other hand, is the “perfect law of liberty” and liberty means freedom, not bondage. Written law as in the Law of Moses was bondage and one must remember that the Ten Commandments were written by the Finger of Yah (God) himself and not by man and these have never changed and Yeshua kept them. The Bible does not contradict itself. Galatians 3:10 says clearly the “book of the law” which is definitely NOT the Ten Commandments. Keep in mind too that the Ten Commandments were placed inside the Ark of the Covenant and Moses Law (ordinances) were placed on the outside of the Ark.

James 1:25 confirms this: “But whoso looketh into the “perfect law of liberty”(referring to Ten Commandments) and continueth therein he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the Word, this man shall be blessed in his deed”

James 2:10-12 For whosoever shall keep the whole law (Ten Commandments again) and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all for He that said “do not commit adultery”, said also, “do not kill”. Now if you commit no adultery yet if you kill, you are become a transgressor of the law (vs 12)So speak you, and so do, as they that shall be judged by the law of liberty (Ten Commandments).

Without the Ten Commandments (laws) we would not even know what sin was. They define sin. Without sin, there is no law so are we all sinners? Of course we are so how could this have been changed and/or done away with when Sin is transgression of the law.

So how long would the Law of Moses remain in effect? (KJV) Galatians 3:19 KJV Wherefore then serveth the law? It was added because of transgressions, till the seed should come to whom the promise was made; and it was ordained by angels in the hand of a mediator.

Do you see here that it states “till the seed should come to who the promise was made; and it was ordained by angels in the hand of a mediator”?

Who became the mediator and the seed promised? Was this not Yeshua? He was the sacrificial Lamb for all.

So us being justified by faith as people say and not by works of the law does this then bring an end to the Ten Commandments?

Romans 3:28 Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law. 29 Is he the God of the Jews only? is he not also of the Gentiles? Yes, of the Gentiles also: 30 Seeing it is one God, which shall justify the circumcision by faith, and uncircumcision through faith. 31 Do we then make void the law through faith? God forbid: yea, we establish the law.
Notice the word “ESTABLISH” here. Paul gives clarity here as to whether we are removed from our obligation to OBEY the Ten Commandments (the law) and the answer is an emphatic NO!!! Paul made it clear that the Ten Commandments are NOT made null and void by faith and that we are to uphold the law. You cannot uphold and obey a law that is gone can you? Without the Ten Commandments there would be no moral compass to live by.

Matthew 5:17,18 KJV 17 Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.

18 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.

SO ASK YOURSELVES; DID HEAVEN AND EARTH PASS? No it has not. You and I are still here. Has all been fulfilled yet in the prophetic timeline? NO!!! So not one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law

Now for the word “fulfilled” Strongs Concordance 4137

to fulfil, i.e. to cause God’s will (as made known in the law) to be obeyed as it should be, and God’s promises (given through the prophets) to receive fulfilment

I PRAY THIS OPENS YOUR EYES ; THERE IS MUCH MORE ON THIS BUT FOR THE SAKE OF NOT MAKING IT TOO LONG I WILL STOP HERE. FOLKS, WE ARE TO OBEY THE TEN COMMANDMENTS/ NOTHING HAS CHANGED/YESHUA KEPT THEM AND SO SHOULD WE IF WE SAY WE LOVE HIM. LOVE TO ALL
