A Coffin for The Law

God had barely given the Law to Moses when He ordered that it be put in a coffin. That’s right — a ‘coffin.’ The reason for this is that the Mosaic covenant clearly stipulated:“Now therefore, IF YE WILL OBEY MY VOICE INDEED, and keep My covenant, THEN ye (Israel) shall be a peculiar treasure unto Me above all people, for all the earth is Mine” (Ex. 19:5).

The Law Misunderstood

There are three basic misconceptions that most people entertain about the law of God and its Ten Commandments.

  1. Most people have a vague notion that the law always was in existence and that it must have been given to the first man, Adam, or soon after.

Actually, God gave the law to Moses for Israel only, about 1,500 B.C. This was after about 2,500 years of human history had elapsed (John 1:17). So mankind lived on earth for about 2,500 years without the law or the Ten Commandments.

The True Sabbath

Paul is the Apostle to the Gentiles (Rom 11:13). Paul says we are "under grace" and "not under 'the law" that was given to Israel. Romans 6:14b ... ye are not under the law, but under grace. The law was  not and is not for the Gentile "body of Christ," so any law regarding "the sabbath" is irrelevant to us as members of "the body of Christ."
