I’ve been delivered from the fear of posting the obvious. So, here goes …
Jesus fulfilled the law and He can never sin.
Jesus manifests Himself through those people in whom He lives.
Jesus, whenever living through them, causes them to live as He lived.
Thus, Jesus sets us free from sin and fulfills the law, as we let Him live through us.
Therefore, those that fixate their focus on Jesus and abide in Him, have found that as they do so, they are miraculously doing what they could not do otherwise … for in letting the Lord Jesus live through them they are taking a break from the vexation of sin and finding that (by the Spirit) their works are in perfect alignment with His laws.
From one moment to the next our focus can change, and so we may use any given moment (no matter what went before) to again focus upon the Lord and abide in Christ Jesus … opening the door of our hearts and letting Him come out (of us) and play.
The first-fruits or works bore in our lives AFTER YahuShua (Jesus) abiding in us is to keep the Commandments by His enabling grace and love… this is to fulfill the Law (“inside-out”); that we keep the Commandments. And in keeping them(commands 1-4) is to Love God with all ourselves and to love our neighbor as ourself (commands 5-10)–> “we ESTABLISH the Law!”(Romans 3:31)
This is to do what YahuShua (Jesus) did…walking as He walked… denying ourselves and picking up our crosses and following Him… He living through us. Even to the remembering of the Sabbath, which is the only Commandment the Lord God sanctified and said that we should REMEMBER and keep Holy, even as YahuShua (Jesus) did.
So then these things are indeed self-evident or ‘obvious’ even as the Scripture below states… yet the churches teach to walk contrary to YahuShua (Jesus) and to resist the Holy Spirit and the enabling Grace given us and walk instead according to the doctrines of men rather than letting Christ in us fulfill all righteousness, that we, of ourselves, could never do. Because YahuShua (Jesus) IS “The Lord Our Righteousness” (Jer 33:16).
And what is righteousness?… that we believe in the Son and keep the Moral Law by Him who lives in us…
Grace AND the Law.
1 John 2:3-6
3 Now by this we know that we know Him, if we keep His commandments. 4 He who says, “I know Him,” and does not keep His commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. 5 But whoever keeps His word, truly the love of God is perfected in him. By this we know that we are in Him. 6 He who says he abides in Him ought himself also to walk just as He walked.
Do we then make void the law through faith? Certainly not! On the contrary, we establish the law.
So what is FIRST?
Joh 15:4 –
Remain united to Me, and I will remain united to you. A branch cannot bear fruit by itself; it can do so only if it remains in the Vine. In the same way you cannot bear fruit unless you remain in Me.
