The 10 commandments were DEATH. Proof??? Yes:…..
11Cor. 3: 7. But if the ministration of death, written and engraven in stones, was glorious, so that the children of Israel could not stedfastly behold the face of Moses for the glory of his countenance; which glory was to be done away:
8. How shall not the ministration of the spirit be rather glorious?
9. For if the ministration of condemnation be glory, much more doth the ministration of righteousness exceed in glory.
10. For even that which was made glorious had no glory in this respect, by reason of the glory that excelleth.
11. For if that which is done away was glorious, much more that which remaineth is glorious.
12. Seeing then that we have such hope, we use great plainness of speech:
13. And not as Moses, which put a vail over his face, that the children of Israel could not stedfastly look to the end of that which is abolished:
14. But their minds were blinded: for until this day remaineth the same vail untaken away in the reading of the old testament; which vail is done away in Christ.
15. But even unto this day, when Moses is read, the vail is upon their heart.
16. Nevertheless when it shall turn to the Lord, the vail shall be taken away.
17. Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.
Let’s take that a verse at a time:
7. this plainly identifies the 10 commandments, ( for this is the only set of laws ever to be written and engraven on STONE)… now he said this is DEATH. Yes, Moses was ministering DEATH to those people. That 10 commandments is DEATH. Why do you want DEATH so much? When you could have life?
v8– Shows that the Grace is the ministration of Spirit, or life.
v9–again calls the ministration of the law CONDEMNATION; AND COMPARES IT WITH THE MINISTRATION OF GRACE AS THAT OF RIGHTEOUSNESS.
v10,& 11– compares the two covenants and shows that the Grace, or Spirit excells in glory. It also showed that the death or law covenant was done away with.
v13– again tells us that law covenant was ABOLISHED.
v14– tells us that that law BLINDED THEIR EYES, AND EVEN TODAY WHEN YOU READ THE OLD TESTAMENT, YOU ARE BLINDED.
NOW THERE IS YOUR PROBLEM — YOU HAVE BEEN BLINDED. SO HAS MILLIONS AND MILLIONS MORE. YOU REFUSE LIFE = GRACE;
AND LOVE DEATH = LAW. WHICH HAS BEEN ABOLISHED WHETHER YOU LIKE IT OR NOT.
v15..even today when MOSES (law) is read, the vail is upon their hearts; only turning to the Lord can take that veil away. So this proves none of you law keepers have turned to the Lord and liberty.
You law keepers are under death, bondage, blindness, darkness, veiled, and can’t get out.
