    Cool The Law Of Christ

    LAW OF CHRIST
    [Gal 6:2
    2 Bear one another's burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.
    John 14:6
    6 Jesus said to him, "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.
    JOH 15-10 If you keep My commandments, you will abide in My love, just as I have kept My Fathers commandments and abide in His love.
    John 6:63
    63 "It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life.
    John 14:1
    1 "Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me.
    Luke 6:37-38
    37 "Judge not, and you shall not be judged. Condemn not, and you shall not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven.
    38 "Give, and it will be given to you: good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over will be put into your bosom. For with the same measure that you use, it will be measured back to you."
    John 3:17-19
    17 "For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.
    18 "He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
    19 "And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
    John 10:7-8
    7 Then Jesus said to them again, "Most assuredly, I say to you, I am the door of the sheep.
    8 "All who ever came before Me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep did not hear them.
    Heb 8:13
    13 In that He says, "A new covenant," He has made the first obsolete. Now what is becoming obsolete and growing old is ready to vanish away.
    Heb 9:1
    1 Then indeed, even the first covenant had ordinances of divine service and the earthly sanctuary.
    Gal 6:2
    2 Bear one another's burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.
    Eph 4:32
    32 And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, just as God in Christ forgave you.
    Col 3:13
    13 bearing with one another, and forgiving one another, if anyone has a complaint against another; even as Christ forgave you, so you also must do.
    Matt 6:14-15
    14 "For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you.
    15 "But if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.
    1 Cor 6:6-8
    6 But brother goes to law against brother, and that before unbelievers!
    7 Now therefore, it is already an utter failure for you that you go to law against one another. Why do you not rather accept wrong? Why do you not rather let yourselves be cheated?
    8 No, you yourselves do wrong and cheat, and you do these things to your brethren!
    1 Pet 2:19-21
    19 For this is commendable, if because of conscience toward God one endures grief, suffering wrongfully.
    20 For what credit is it if, when you are beaten for your faults, you take it patiently? But when you do good and suffer, if you take it patiently, this is commendable before God.
    21 For to this you were called, because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that you should follow His steps:
    James 2:12
    12 So speak and so do as those who will be judged by the law of liberty.
    Rom 2:12-13
    12 For as many as have sinned without law will also perish without law, and as many as have sinned in the law will be judged by the law
    13 (for not the hearers of the law are just in the sight of God, but the doers of the law will be justified;
    John 15:14
    14 "You are My friends if you do whatever I command you.
    Matt 5:19
    19 "Whoever therefore breaks one of the least of these commandments, and teaches men so, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but whoever does and teaches them, he shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.
    Matt 10:16-19
    16 "Behold, I send you out as sheep in the midst of wolves. Therefore be wise as serpents and harmless as doves.
    17 "But beware of men, for they will deliver you up to councils and scourge you in their synagogues.
    18 "You will be brought before governors and kings for My sake, as a testimony to them and to the Gentiles.
    19 "But when they deliver you up, do not worry about how or what you should speak. For it will be given to you in that hour what you should speak;
    John 14:15-17
    15 "If you love Me, keep My commandments.
    16 "And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever--
    17 "the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you.
    John 14:23-25
    23 Jesus answered and said to him, "If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our home with him.
    24 "He who does not love Me does not keep My words; and the word which you hear is not Mine but the Father's who sent Me.
    25 "These things I have spoken to you while being present with you.
    John 15:10-12
    10 "If you keep My commandments, you will abide in My love, just as I have kept My Father's commandments and abide in His love.
    11 "These things I have spoken to you, that My joy may remain in you, and that your joy may be full.
    12 "This is My commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you.
    1 Cor 4:6
    6 Now these things, brethren, I have figuratively transferred to myself and Apollos for your sakes, that you may learn in us not to think beyond what is written, that none of you may be puffed up on behalf of one against the other.
    (NKJ)

    XXX The old testament law of sin and death is still in effect. For the world. The law of Christ overrides the old testament law of sin and death. But if we break the law of Christ, that will put us back under the old testament law of sin and death. It takes a law to deliver us from a law. It also takes a law to keep us out of heaven. And it also takes a law to get us into heaven. The law of Christ has many commandments.


    1 Cor 9:21
    21 to those who are without law, as without law (not being without law toward God, but under law toward Christ), that I might win those who are without law;
    (NKJ)

    Matt 5:19-20
    19 "Whoever therefore breaks one of the least of these commandments, and teaches men so, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but whoever does and teaches them, he shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.
    20 "For I say to you, that unless your righteousness exceeds the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven.
    (NKJ)


    Rom 2:11-13
    11 For there is no partiality with God.
    12 For as many as have sinned without law will also perish without law, and as many as have sinned in the law will be judged by the law
    13 (for not the hearers of the law are just in the sight of God, but the doers of the law will be justified;

    Heb 8:10
    10 "For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says the Lord: I will put My laws in their mind and write them on their hearts; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people.
    (NKJ)

    Heb 10:16
    16 "This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, says the Lord: I will put My laws into their hearts, and in their minds I will write them,"
    (NKJ)

    [Rom 8:7
    7 Because the carnal mind [is] enmity against God; for it is not subject to the law of God, nor indeed can be.

    [Heb 10:9
    9 then He said, "Behold, I have come to do Your will, O God." He takes away the first that He may establish the second.

    If one truly loves God and Neighbor they will be obeying the commandments.

    Faith-Works-Love (By Themselves they are only principles) But together they are righteousness.

    People are trying to make a conclusion out of pieces and parts. It cant be done. Faith alone won't get you to heaven. Works alone won't get you to heaven. Love alone won't get you to heaven. That is the only conclusion. It takes all three working together .

    XXX If all you have to present to God is faith, YOU ARE NOTHING.
    1 Cor 13:1-2

    1 Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I have become sounding brass or a clanging cymbal.
    2 And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing.
    James 2:14
    14 What does it profit, my brethren, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can faith save him?
    James 2:17-18
    17 Thus also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.
    18 But someone will say, "You have faith, and I have works." Show me your faith without your works, and I will show you my faith by my works.
    James 2:24
    24 You see then that a man is justified by works, and not by faith only.
    James 2:26
    26 For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.
    Rom 16:26
    26 but now has been made manifest, and by the prophetic Scriptures has been made known to all nations, according to the commandment of the everlasting God, for obedience to the faith--
    (NKJ)

    XXX You are saved by grace through faith. But that is NOT SALVATION. Faith only works through love.

    Eph 2:8
    8 For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God,
    (NKJ)


    Luke 6:32-33
    32 "But if you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? For even sinners love those who love them.
    33 "And if you do good to those who do good to you, what credit is that to you? For even sinners do the same.
    (NKJ)

    xxx Some stand on faith and some stand on works and some stand on love. They are all principles, they have to be together. So many on here are argueing just one point or part of a whole. You need to understand. Faith without works or love is dead. Works without faith or love is vanity. Love without faith or works is useless. Love is NOT AN EMOTION. Love is an action.

    So many are running on blind faith. They dont even know what faith is. In reality their useing trust as faith. Their different. Your faith should be in what is written, all of it. But faith alone will NOT get you to heaven. Works alone will NOT get you to heaven. Love alone will not get you to heaven. What you need is the true faith in the Word of God. If you have the true faith in the Word of God you would try your best to do the works that are in the Word. Now love is NOT a feeling but an action. And the only way to learn what Godly love is would be to do the works. That is how you learn what love is by trying to do the works. In the Word that you have put your faith in.


    Rom 5:1-4
    1 Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ,
    2 through whom also we have access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.
    3 And not only that, but we also glory in tribulations, knowing that tribulation produces perseverance;
    4 and perseverance, character; and character, hope.
    Eph 2:18-20
    18 For through Him we both have access by one Spirit to the Father.
    19 Now, therefore, you are no longer strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God,
    20 having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ Himself being the chief corner stone,
    Eph 3:12
    12 in whom we have boldness and access with confidence through faith in Him.
    (NKJ)

    xxx Do you have real faith, or blind faith?? The true faith only works through love. True love is to suffer wrongfully. Your real faith only works when you are suffering wrongfully.

    Gal 5:6
    6 For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision avails anything, but faith working through love.
    (NKJ)

    1 Tim 1:5-6
    5 Now the purpose of the commandment is love from a pure heart, from a good conscience, and from sincere faith,
    6 from which some, having strayed, have turned aside to idle talk,
    (NKJ)

    xxx Even Abraham had to prove his faith with works.

    [Jas 2:20-24, 26
    20 But do you want to know, O foolish man, that faith without works is dead?
    21 Was not Abraham our father justified by works when he offered Isaac his son on the altar?
    22 Do you see that faith was working together with his works, and by works faith was made perfect?
    23 And the Scripture was fulfilled which says, "Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness." And he was called the friend of God.
    24 You see then that a man is justified by works, and not by faith only. ...
    26 For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.
