Letter and Spirit of the Word

Letter and Spirit of the Word

From the beginning God has use the Power of His Holy Spirit, His Word to speak creation into being. And by His Power of the Holy Spirit of Word God would manifest Himself as Father, Son and Holy Spirit, Indwelled and the Spirit of Truth and Comforter.

In the Old Covenant God’s Holy Spirit spoke to the Prophets and Patriarchs directly and through the Angels. Then with Moses God gave man the Letter of the Word for the whole nation of Israel so all would know God’s Word and have no excuse not to obey.

When the Letter of the Word failed do to the weakness of the flesh, God gave the spirit of the Word indwelled by writing on the hearts and minds of all men. Waiting to be awoken by the hearing of the Word spoken.

Now listen to the truth of the Letter and Spirit of the Word.

 

Jeremiah 31:31-34 (KJV)

31  Behold, the days come, said the LORD, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah: 32  Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they broke, although I was an husband unto them, said the LORD:

 

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.

 

Then God called Paul to teach the gentiles and explain salvation was no longer by the Letter of The Word, the Law of Moses alone. But our justification would now come through the Spirit of the Word Christ Jesus and the Indwelling. All by the Grace of God and a Faith of Obedience.

 

Romans 2:28-29 (KJV)

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 3:19-22 (KJV)

19 Now we know that what things soever the law saith, it saith 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:

 

Romans 7:5-6 (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.

John 6:63 (KJV)

63 It is the spirit that quickened (gives life); the flesh profited nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.

  

2 Corinthians 3:4-6 (KJV)

4 And such trust have we through Christ to God-ward: 5 Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think anything as of ourselves; but our sufficiency is of God;

 

 

6 Who also hath 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.

Galatians 3:23-26 (KJV)

But before faith came, we were kept under the law, shut up unto the faith which should afterwards be revealed. Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith.

 

But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster. For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.
