The Letter of the Law or the Spirit of the Law Which are we Under

The Letter of the Law or the Spirit of the Law Which are we Under
John 1:1-4, 14 (KJV) In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God.
All things were made by him; and without him was not anything made that was made. In him was life; and the life was the light of men.
And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.
Romans 2:28-29(NKJV) For he is not a Jew who is one outwardly, nor is circumcision that which is outward in the flesh; but he is a Jew who is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the Spirit, not in the letter; whose praise is not from men but from God.
Romans 3:19, 20(NKJV) Now we know that whatever the law says, it says to those who are under the law, that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God.
Therefore by the deeds of the law no flesh will be justified in His sight, for by the law is the knowledge of sin.
Romans 7:5-6(NKJV) For when we were in the flesh, the sinful passions which were aroused by the law were at work in our members to bear fruit to death.
But now we have been delivered from the law, having died to what we were held by, so that we should serve in the newness of the Spirit and not in the oldness of the letter.
2 Corinthians 3:4-6(NKJV) And we have such trust through Christ toward God. Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think of anything as being from ourselves, but our sufficiency is from God, who also made us sufficient as ministers of the new covenant, not of the letter but of the Spirit; for the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life.
We must understand the Word; the Law and Christ Jesus the Holy Spirit are all one. And the Word; the Law and Holy Spirit of Christ Jesus were, are and will be given in the Letter and the Spirit.
In the beginning it was the Spirit of God’s Living Word, God’s Holy Spirit (the Christ to come). And it was by the Spirit of the Word God spoke and manifested Himself to mankind. It is was by the Spirit of God’s Word Moses received the Letter of the Word, the Troah and later through the Word(Holy Spirit of Christ) made flesh and finally by the Holy Spirit of The Word Indwelled by revelation of Prayer. Here is more proof; Jeremiah 31:33-34 (KJV) 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. 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, saith the LORD: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more.
The Spirit of the Word written on our hearts and minds of our soul and eternal spirit. For the flesh was too weak.
The difference is in that in the beginning the Holy Spirit of God’s Words was not indwelled, but given and taken at God’s will. However God desired to be with man, so He gave us the Holy Spirit of the Word in the Letter through Moses. And as it is written the Word “is the knowledge of sin.” And “by the deeds of the law no flesh will be justified in His sight.”
Romans 8:3-5 (KJV) 3 For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh:
4 That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. 5 For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit.
So by the first coming of the Word, the Law in the flesh, By the power God’s Grace and our Spiritual Faith of Obedience we passed from being under the Letter of the Law, to by Grace being under the Spirit, or Spiritual Law.
So, whether it be the Letter of the Law/Word, the Knowledge of sin, or the Spirit of the Law/Word, the Spiritual Law of Grace, Faith and Obedience. God’s Law, God’s Word is the Grace of our salvation.
So are we under the Law? No we are no longer under the Letter of the Law. But we are under the Spiritual Law. Where we are no longer called righteous by our works and deeds. But we are called righteous by God’s Grace through our Spiritual Faith and Obedience.
