To be lawless is to be lifeless, no matter how educated you are, if you won’t breathe in and breathe out, you get out of existence, it is a law. You don’t only eat, you also defecate, if you don’t defecate, you are dead, they are laws of nature.
Every thing about life is guided by laws, so when you have this extreme grace message in quote, it can squeeze life out of people, in matt. 5:17- 24, very interesting, you will see higher laws of the kingdom, “Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill “.
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 ..
Many think Jesus came to destroy the law, no! So if you hate laws, you hate commandments, you have no place in the kingdom, in verse 27 you see the old law and verse 28 , you see an higher law.
- Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not commit adultery:
28 But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.
It is not a jamboree kingdom, it is not a do what you like kingdom, it is not a talk, talk kingdom, it is a kingdom guided by rules.
Christianity brings you and me under the law of Christ, we are not a lawless people, in romans 8:vs 1 and 2.
There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.
You have to engage one law to be free from the other, so it is not a free for all jamboree kingdom, where you just speak grammar and think you are making marks, you are guided by rules and laws.
If you don’t set rules around your life, you will just fall and fail for nothing.
