Grace and the Law; or is it Grace and Lawlessness?

Read, Ponder, Pray, Listen...

Grace and the Law; or is it Grace and Lawlessness?... which is Grace versus the Law.

Does the Lord stand divided against Himself?... Or do you?
You must decide, because it means the difference between Evacuation and Refinement in the Day of the Lord.
[Read (click to read): 1 Corinthians 3:10-*15.]

*1 Corinthians 3:15:
...if it is burned up, he will have to bear the loss: he will still escape with his life, but it will be like escaping through a fire.

We must ask ourselves: What are the first-works in faith after receiving Grace and forgiveness of sins? And what is the first-fruits bore by these works?

To Love God with all our hearts, and all our minds, and all our strength(Commandments 1-4), and to love our neighbor as ourself(Commandments 5-10).

Therefore the Moral Law is love and will Never pass away, rather it must be written in our hearts... and will be.

Romans 7:12:
Therefore the law is holy, and the commandment holy and just and good. ~ Paul.

Romans 3:31:
Do we then make void the law through faith? Certainly not! On the contrary, we establish the law. ~ Paul.

Jeremiah 31:33:
But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people. ~ God.


Matthew 5:19
Whoever therefore breaks one of the least of these commandments, and teaches men so, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but whoever does and teaches them, he shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven. ~ Jesus.

Just who says keep the commandments?:

Matthew 19:17:
So He said to him, "Why do you call Me good? No one is good but One, that is, God. But if you want to enter into life, keep the commandments." ~ Jesus.

1John 2:4:
He who says, "I know Him," and does not keep His commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. ~ John.

1John 5:2:
By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God and keep His commandments.
~ John.

1John 5:3:
For this is the love of God, that we keep His commandments. And His commandments are not burdensome. ~ John.

Revelation 12:17:
And the dragon was enraged with the woman, and he went to make war with the rest of her offspring, *who keep the commandments of God and have the testimony of Jesus Christ. ~ Jesus.

Revelation 14:12:
Here is the patience of the saints; here are *those who keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus. ~ Jesus.

[*Grace And the Law.]

Do we even need John's testimony? Yes, even his words come from Jesus... And Jesus' testimony is the greatest of all... follow and obey Him, knowing you are already in Grace, seek not to betray that gift in love by returning to that which you have been delivered from. For your love is made perfect in obedience... Trust and obey.

Thus says the Lord:
[Jesus] So now hear and understand: Salvation can, in no wise, depart from you... once received. Therefore, seek to please the Father and keep the Law. For how can one who walks in Me, by grace, also walk in that which had condemned them? Shall My people reach toward Heaven with one hand, but continue to tread the path which leads to destruction? Shall one who loves Me take My hand, and walk beside Me, with only one foot on the good ground and the other in the grave? Therefore, knowledge must increase, and sin decrease, to enter the Kingdom of Heaven. One, who is under grace, bears fruit of the same; and the One, who kept the Law of the Father, revealed that grace by works.
Remember My words, to those who were self-righteous within themselves, and sought to stone Me for My words. Did I not say to them,

"Do not believe Me then, but you should at least believe My deeds"?

Beloved sons, I am in the Father, and He is in Me, and We in you. And if I am in you, seek to please the Father, even as I did, and He will be pleased with you, because you seek to follow Me in truth, bearing your cross also, not fearing its weight but embracing it, whereby you become an example, walking into the Kingdom after Me, leading many others also.

So then, grace is first and everlasting.
Then comes works, the first works in faith, even the first fruits bore in your lives...
which is to love the Father, and one another, by keeping the Law.

James 2:18:
But someone will say, "You have faith, and I have works." Show me your faith without your works, and I will show you my faith by my works..

James 2:20:
But do you want to know, O foolish man, that faith without works is dead?

James 2:26:
For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.

Matthew 7:21-23:
Not everyone who says to me, `Lord, Lord!' will enter the Kingdom of Heaven, only those who do what my Father in heaven wants. On that Day, many will say to me, `Lord, Lord! Didn't we prophesy in your name? Didn't we expel demons in your name? Didn't we perform many miracles in your name?' Then I will tell them to their faces, `I never knew you! Get away from me, you workers of lawlessness!'

Deuteronomy 7:9:
Therefore know that the Lord your God, He is God, the faithful God who keeps covenant and mercy for a thousand generations with those who love Him and keep His commandments;
