THAT THE LAW WAS ADDED SO THAT SIN MIGHT INCREASE;
(Rom 5:20a) “The law was added so that the trespass might increase.”
THAT THE LAW ACTIVATES THE FLESH;
(Rom 7:5) “For when we were in the flesh, the sinful passions which were aroused by the law were at work in our members to bear fruit to death.”
THAT THE MORE YOU PUT MYSELF UNDER LAW, THE MORE SIN WILL MANIFEST IN YOUR LIFE;
(Rom 7:8) “But sin, seizing the opportunity afforded by the commandment, produced in me every kind of covetous desire. For apart from law, sin is dead.”
THAT WE ARE PRISONERS OF THE LAW UNTIL FAITH IS REVEALED;
(Gal. 3:23) “Before this faith came, we were held prisoners by the law, locked up until faith should be revealed.”
THAT NOW THAT FAITH HAS COME, (“OPERATING SYSTEM” UNDER GRACE IS FAITH) WE ARE NO LONGER UNDER THE SUPERVISION OF THE LAW;
(Gal. 3:25-26) “Now that faith has come, we are no longer under the supervision of the law. You are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus,
THAT GRACE IS THE ONLY ANTIDOTE TO SIN;
(Rom 5:20b) “But where sin increased, grace increased all the more.”
THAT UNDER GRACE, SIN IS POWERLESS OVER YOU;
(Rom 6:14) “For sin shall not have dominion over you, for you are not under law but under grace.”
THAT THE LAW (TEN COMMANDMENTS) IS THE OLD COVENANT;
(Exo 34:28) “So he was there with the LORD forty days and forty nights; he neither ate bread nor drank water. And He wrote on the tablets the words of the covenant, the Ten Commandments.”
THAT UNDER LAW, BLESSINGS WHEN OBEYED, BUT CURSES WHEN DISOBEYED; BREAK ONE AND YOU ARE GUILTY OF BREAKING ALL.
(Jas 2:10) “For whoever keeps the whole law and yet stumbles at just one point is guilty of breaking all of it.”
THAT THE NEW COVENANT IS A COVENANT OF GRACE FOUNDED ON CHRIST’S FINISHED WORK ON THE CROSS.
(Eph 2:8) “For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God—not by works, so that no one can boast.
THAT UNDER GRACE (NEW COVENANT), SIN IS NOT CREDITED AGAINST US;
(Heb 8:12) “For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their lawless deeds I will remember no more.”
(Heb 8:13) By calling this covenant “new,” he has made the first one obsolete; and what is obsolete and aging will soon disappear.
THAT UNDER GRACE (NEW COVENANT), GOD IS RECONCILING THE WORLD TO HIMSELF IN CHRIST, NOT COUNTING MEN’S SINS AGAINST THEM;
(2Cor 5:19) “That God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting men’s sins against them.”
THAT UNDER GRACE, BY FAITH YOU RECEIVE THE ABUNDANT PROVISION OF GRACE AND THE GIFT OF RIGHTEOUSNESS AND THAT YOU REIGN IN LIFE THROUGH CHRIST JESUS..
(Rom 5:17b) “how much more will those who receive God’s abundant provision of grace and of the gift of righteousness reign in life through the one man, Jesus Christ.”
THAT WE CHRISTIANS ARE SUPPOSEDLY UNDER GRACE AND NOT UNDER LAW.
