For this is the love of God,
that we keep his commandments:
and his commandments are not grievous.

Ordinances (given by God)
written by Moses,
in a book.
…Moses…words of this law in a book..
Take this book of the law,
and put it in the side of the ark
The 10 Commandments, written by the finger of God on stone tablets,
were placed INSIDE the ark of the covenant.
…two tables of testimony, tables of stone, written with the finger of God. – (Exodus 31:18)
The Law, Moral Law
Handwriting of ordinances = Ceremonial Laws found in Leviticus – Sacrificial laws.
Foreshadowing what Jesus would Fulfill.

therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed.
Malachi 3:6 KJV
The Ceremonial laws foreshadowed what Jesus Christ would fulfill.
The Ceremonial Laws
(written in book by Moses)
put on the side of the ark. <<
Many of these feasts were the foreshadowing of Jesus Christ
Passover – He/Jesus Christ is the Lamb of God.
Slaying of the Lamb for the sins of the People.
Hence, the foreshadowing is completed when he was crucified.
Feasts of the Tabernacles – The temple is now us (God in us).
Hence, no need to continue the annual feast.
Day of Atonement — Jesus is the High Priest now.
Also Read 2 Corinthians Chapters 3,4
Do we then make void the law through faith?
God forbid: yea, we establish the law.
Romans 3:31 KJV
WHAT truly is the
The Old Covenant was to Israel
AND anyone who wanted to Love, Worship, and Serve God.
[Even if they were not Jews]
Reconciling Man to God. Sin = Death, Blood Shed
Relationship with our Creator.
Old Covenant foreshadowed Jesus Christ –
WORD made Flesh (John 1)
Lamb of God
Son of God
Lamb of God
Sacrificed for our Sins.
Came in the Flesh, tempted as we are
Direct Access to God, through Jesus.
God Does Not Change.
But Christ being come an high priest of good things to come, by a greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say, not of this building; Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us. For if the blood of bulls and of goats, and the ashes of an heifer sprinkling the unclean, sanctifieth to the purifying of the flesh: How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God? And for this cause he is the mediator of the new testament, that by means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions that were under the first testament, they which are called might receive the promise of eternal inheritance.
Hebrews 9:11-15 KJV
Then Philip opened his mouth,
and began at the same scripture,
and preached unto him Jesus.
Acts 8:35 KJV out of OT Scripture
the same yesterday,
and to day,
and for ever.
Hebrews 13:8 KJV
For the bodies of those beasts, whose blood is brought into the sanctuary by the high priest for sin, are burned without the camp.
Wherefore Jesus also,
that he might sanctify the people with his own blood, suffered without the gate.
Hebrews 13:11-12 KJV
Salvation is only through Jesus Christ.
Nothing we can do, can earn justification, but Jesus Christ crucified and sitting at the right hand of the God. #Faith
Under the New Covenant
We Believe (above), Receive Jesus Christ as our Saviour. Sins cleansed, Justification. Repent.
Get Baptized by water and the Holy Ghost and;
Abide and Follow Jesus. Making him our Lord.
Relationship with God, our Heavenly Father restored.
Grace – Gift of Salvation through Jesus Christ
Salvation + Faith = Fruit/Works
Motivation IS Love
“If you love me, keep my Commandments”
Galatians Chapters 3-6 are
talking about the law of Moses,
written in a book, placed on the side of the ark.
And later The Law (10 Commandments) inside the ARK [Heart]
The Schoolmaster [law of Moses on side of the ark] taught instruction & justification for our actions.
To be heeded in Spirit and in Truth.
(With the understanding/conviction of the heart). The Physical representing Spiritual.
Justification is Only through the Cleansing of our sins.
Under the OT ‘law’, sacrificial & ceremonial laws foreshadowed Jesus Christ.
Now, Only through Jesus Christ who is the Lamb of God, is there Justification/Cleansing of our sins.
The [sacrificial & ceremonial] laws were nailed to the cross.
The Law [10 Commandments, Summarized by 2 & even expanded upon] are still God’s Commandments.
If we sin;
It’s The Law that will judge us.
