Hi and welcome once again to “Abounding Grace” as we continue our study of the law of the Spirit of Christ. Last time we discussed how this law becomes operational in a person’s life and how to operate in this law. To-day we will continue with the key to putting this law into motion.
Rom.8:2. (Amp) For the law of the Spirit of life [which is] in Christ Jesus [the law of our new being] has freed me from the law of sin and of death.
We see two distinctively different laws at work here, life and death are opposites, they are separate entities and they do not intermingle. The laws that govern Satan’s kingdom are at work in the earth since Adam fell, however, the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus will supercede the law of sin and death when put into operation.
Here is a table that will help you to understand what belongs under which law.
- The law of sin and death:
The law of sin and death comprises all the miseries arising from sin and its consequences: sickness; disease; poverty and lack; physical death; mental illness; everything that could possibly go wrong with a human being, whether it be spirit, soul, body, financial or social. It is listed under the curse in Deut.28:15-68 and you can go and read it in your Bible.
- The law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus:
The law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus consists of: salvation; healing; Holy Spirit baptism; the gifts of the Spirit;
1Cor.12:7-10. (KJV) But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal. For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit; to another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit; to another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another divers kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues.
The fruit of the Spirit;
Gal.5:22. (Amp) But the fruit of the [Holy] Spirit [the work which His presence within accomplishes] is love, joy (gladness), peace, patience (an even temper, forbearance), kindness, goodness (benevolence), faithfulness.
A joint-inheritance with Christ:
Rom.8:17. (Amp) And if we are [His] children, then we are [His] heirs also: heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ [sharing His inheritance with Him].
Redemption from the curse:
Gal.3:13. (Amp) Christ purchased our freedom [redeeming us] from the curse (doom) of the Law [and its condemnation] by [Himself] becoming a curse for us, for it is written [in the Scriptures], Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree (is crucified).
The present day High Priestly ministry of Jesus:
Rom.8:34. (KJV) Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us.
Hebr.2:17. (KJV) Wherefore in all things it behoved him to be made like unto his brethren, that he might be a merciful and faithful high priest in things pertaining to God, to make reconciliation for the sins of the people.
The care of the Father:
1Pet.5:7. (Amp) Casting the whole of your care [all your anxieties, all your worries, all your concerns, once and for all] on Him, for He cares for you affectionately and cares about you watchfully.
All that pertains to life and Godliness:
2Pet.1:3. (Amp) For His divine power has bestowed upon us all things that [are requisite and suited] to life and godliness, through the [full, personal] knowledge of Him Who called us by and to His own glory and excellence (virtue).
If you do not draw the line between these two laws, you will not be able to resist the devil when he comes against you.
The Key to setting this law in motion is found in:
Rom.10:9-10. (Amp) Because if you acknowledge and confess with your lips that Jesus is Lord and in your heart believe (adhere to, trust in, and rely on the truth) that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart a person believes (adheres to, trusts in, and relies on Christ) and so is justified (declared righteous, acceptable to God), and with the mouth he confesses (declares openly and speaks out freely his faith) and confirms [his] salvation.
All law is dominated by words; it works for salvation, for healing and for deliverance from all satanic oppression. No one can stand idly by and hope to be saved; the same applies to healing, prosperity etc. These things are governed by spiritual law and when you hear the Word, believe it, receive it, speak it and act on it, it will come to pass.
Do you see the importance of becoming established in who you are in Christ, that is why I have been posting the “In Him realities” on “The Invisible Church” site.
http://theinvisablechurch.wordpress.com/ You must know what is available to you through the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus so that you can put it to work in your life.
Another Key to putting the law of the Spirit of life in Christ to work is to be spiritually minded.
Rom.8:6. (KJV) For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.
To be spiritually minded simply means to be Word minded.
John.6:63. (Amp) It is the Spirit Who gives life [He is the Life-giver]; the flesh conveys no benefit whatever [there is no profit in it]. The words (truths) that I have been speaking to you are spirit and life.
It is a spiritual law that whatever you continually think about you will speak and it will come to pass in your life.
Matt.12:34-35. (Amp) You offspring of vipers! How can you speak good things when you are evil (wicked)? For out of the fullness (the overflow, the superabundance) of the heart the mouth speaks. The good man from his inner good treasure flings forth good things, and the evil man out of his inner evil storehouse flings forth evil things.
The word evil here means hurtful, it consists of all hurtful, malicious or corrupt thought, but if God’s Word is what is in your heart in abundance, then it is God’s Word that you will believe, you will be spiritually minded, that will cause the proper attitude to put your faith to work. Faith is the spiritual force that sets these laws in motion and faith is directly connected to the Word of God.
Rom.10:17. (KJV) So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
Thank you so much for joining me in this study of “The law of the Spirit” trust you have be blessed thus far and that you will take this Word and share it with all you come into contact with, spread His love all around and be blessed in all that you do.
Jesus said unless a man be born again he cannot see the kingdom of God, to understand what the kingdom is all about you must be born again and the law of salvation must be applied for the new birth to take place. You can apply the law of salvation by praying the following prayer from your heart and receiving the promise of the Spirit by faith.
“Father, it is written in Your Word that if I confess with my mouth Jesus as Lord and believe in my heart that You have raised Him from dead, I shall be saved. Therefore, Father, I confess that Jesus is my Lord. I make Him Lord of my life right now. I believe in my heart that You raised Jesus from the dead. I renounce my past life with Satan. “I thank You for forgiving me of all my sin. Jesus is now my Lord, and I am a new creation. Old things have passed away. Now all things become new in Jesus’ name. Amen.”
If you have prayed the above prayer then go and study the Eternal Life document for a greater understanding of what you have been given by God your Father.
