THE BENEFITS OF DEATH 3

Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross

Col 2:14

If all that God wanted to do for man was to forgive his sins, then Jesus didn’t need to even step a foot on earth. God could have conveniently forgiven man from His throne up there in heaven. But there was something fundamentally wrong with man: the consciousness of sin. This is that which has kept men away from God and as such it has made them the subject of Satan all their lives. The consciousness of sin is also that which made man to be deserving judgment for sin which is death

The root cause of all these is the law. It brought the knowledge of sin and as such the consciousness of sin thereby strengthening sin to deliver death and bound man to Satan who had the power of death. Please see Gal 3:20, Romans 5:13, Acts 17:30, Rom 7:7-14

However, even though the consciousness of sin made man flee from God’s presence and thus made man the prey of Satan, yet the same consciousness of sin achieved God’s purpose. It did put in man the consciousness of the need for a saviour so that man can legitimately accept the saviour when he comes.

But there was a problem. The law was a fixed rule and established as part of the word of God which would not pass away even if heaven and earth were to pass away. The only reason any part of the Word of God would pass away is if it fulfils the condition upon which God says it would pass away. Thus Jesus said, Mat 5:18 

“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”

So the condition for the removal of the law is its fulfilment. This is what no man could do because to fulfil the law would require dying for sins. Glory be to God, Jesus said:  “Think not that I am come to destroy the law or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil”. (Mat 5:17 KJV). Jesus Fulfilled the law by dying on our behalf. This is another great benefit of His death. It put an end to the law. He nailed it to His cross. The law is dead! Hallelujah!

Can you see why there is no condemnation for those in Jesus? The Law that should have prescribed their condemnation is no longer in existence. Satan can no more exert himself on you than you could be prosecuted for a breaking a non-existent law.

Indeed, like the scripture says in Col 2:14 (EasyEnglish)

“[God] has chosen to forget that we have not obeyed all his rules. He has taken away the list of all the wrong things that we have done. He should have punished us because of that list. But instead, it is like he fixed that list to Christ’s cross. So, he destroyed that list.”

Henceforth, let no one judge you by the law. Let nothing defile your conscience. The law is dead. The Dominion of sin, sickness, Satan and sorrow are all over. Shake yourself from the dust, emancipation yourself from mental slavery. This is the truth, You’re free. Don’t believe the lie that God is angry at you. He’s actually longing for your embrace. If you’d take a bold step towards Him, Hed come running for you. This is why Jesus died, to reconcile us back to God. It is done. The law is dead. Welcome Home.
