    [FONT="]37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.[/FONT]
    [FONT="]38 This is the first and great commandment.[/FONT]
    [FONT="]39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.[/FONT]
    [FONT="]40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.

    Folks this Law has been fulfilled for Gods Elect by Christ, this is righteousness of the law also Rom 8:3-4

    [/FONT]

    [FONT="]3 For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh:[/FONT]
    [FONT="]4That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.[/FONT]

    Remember the doers of the Law shall be Justified Rom 2:13

    13 [FONT="](For not the hearers of the law are just before God, but the doers of the law shall be justified.

    Now all the elect of God are the doers of the Law, no not in themselves, but in and by the Faithfulness of Jesus Christ ![/FONT]

    Absolutely Brother, see my post #57.

    The reason why I emphasized His Death here was to bring attention to His Suretyship for all God's Elect which were Justified from Everlasting by Christ the Lamb Slain from the foundation of the world Rev. 13:8. We know that God has never laid one sin on His Elect because He laid them all on Christ Is. 53:6.

    God never intended Life by man keeping the Law, but intended their Mediator Head and Surety Heb. 7:22 keep it for them Rom. 5:19b.

    Now all the elect of God are the doers of the Law, no not in themselves, but in and by the Faithfulness of Jesus Christ !

    Amen ! So all who were blessed to have Christ as their Surety, when He Lived and Died in their stead, all Righteousness was fulfilled in them by Imputation.
