The Letter and Spirit of the Word

The Letter and Spirit of the Word
 
Brothers and Sisters, it is by the Letter and Spirit of the Word, by the Holy Spirit of Christ Jesus we are saved. Not by the Letter or the Spirit alone, but by the Letter teaching us the Righteousness of God’s Truth of His Spirit. Which give us the Desire and Obedience of a Spiritual Faith, being justified by God into the Born Again Indwelling of His Holy Spirit, His Spirit of Truth, through the Blood of the Holy Spirit of Christ Jesus.
 
Now Listen to the Spirit of Truth, Christ Jesus speaking through His chosen.
 
Romans 2 (KJV) 23 You that makes your boast of the law, through breaking the law dishonors you God? 24 For the name of God is blasphemed among the Gentiles through you, as it is written. 25 For circumcision verily profits, if you keep the law: but if you be a breaker of the law, your circumcision is made uncircumcision. 26 Therefore if the uncircumcision keep the righteousness of the law, shall not his uncircumcision be counted for circumcision? 27 And shall not uncircumcision which is by nature, if it fulfil the law, judge you, who by the letter and circumcision dost transgress the law? 28 For he is not a Jew, which is one outwardly; neither is that circumcision, which is outward in the flesh: 29 But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of God.
 
Romans 3 (KJV) 19 Now we know that what things so ever the law said, it said to them who are under the law: that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God. 20 Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin. 21 But now the righteousness of God without the law is manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets; 22 Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference: 23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; 24 Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus: 25 Whom God has set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God; 26 To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus.
 
Romans 7 (KJV) 5 For when we were in the flesh, the motions of sins, which were by the law, did work in our members to bring forth fruit unto death. 6 But now we are delivered from the law, that being dead wherein we were held; that we should serve in newness of spirit, and not in the oldness of the letter.
 
2 Corinthians 3 (KJV) 3 Forasmuch as you are manifestly declared to be the epistle of Christ ministered by us, written not with ink, but with the Spirit of the living God; not in tables of stone, but in fleshy tables of the heart.
 
As it is written; Jeremiah 31 (KJV) 33 But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, said 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. 34 And they shall teach no more every man his neighbor, and every man his brother, saying, Know the LORD: for they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, said the LORD: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more.
 
2 Corinthians 3 (KJV) 4 And such trust have we through Christ toward God: 5 Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think anything as of ourselves; but our sufficiency is of God; 6 Who also has made us able ministers of the new testament; not of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter kills, but the spirit giveth life.
 
Brothers and Sisters, we can be like the Jews and become righteous by the law and live righteous in the flesh. However if the law does not instill the spiritual desire of Faith and Obedience in our soul then we will not be justified in God’s eyes and Born Again and not receive salvation.
 
For Jesus told us;
John 3 (KJV) 3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
5 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. 6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. 7 Marvel not that I said unto you, You must be born again.
 
1 John 3:9-10 (KJV) 9 Whosoever is born of God does not commit sin; for his seed remained in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God. 10 In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever does not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loves not his brother.
 
1 John 5 (KJV) 4 For whatsoever is born of God overcomes the world: and this is the victory that overcomes the world, even our faith.
18 We know that whosoever is born of God sinned not; but he that is begotten of God keeps himself, and that wicked one touches him not. 19 And we know that we are of God, and the whole world lies in wickedness. 20 And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life.
 
Let remember it is not our concept of righteousness, but God’s that will bring the justification of God’s Grace and salvation. So let us be truthful with ourselves and ask, are we still sinning? Are We Born Again, according to the Word, according to Christ?
