The glory of Sinai paled

  |  0 Comments

The glory of Sinai paled before the glory of Pentecost. Those tablets of stone with their “Thou Shaly not’s” are done away with, for they never brought life to anyone. The Lord has brought in a new covenant, putting His law in our minds and writing it in our hearts (Jer 31:33) – this new law of the Spirit of life. As the Holy Spirit comes in, He fills us with love and liberty and we shout for joy “done away! Done away!” (See 2 Cor :11) Henceforth there is a new cry in our hearts “I delight to do your will, O my God” Ps 40:8. “He takes away the first so He may establish the second Heb 10:9. In other words, He takes away “the ministry of death, written and engraved on stones (2 Cor 3:7), so that He may establish the ministry of righteousness v9, this life in the Spirit.

you ask, “Does a man who is filled with the Spirit cease to keep the commandments?” I simply repeat what the Spirit of God has told us here, that “this ministry of death, written and engraved on stones” (and you know that the Ten Commandments were written on stones) is “done away with” v11. However the man who becomes a living epistle of Christ, written by the Spirit of the living God, has ceased to be an adultered or a murderer or a covetous man; the will of God is His delight. I love to do the will of God, there is no irksomeness to it. It is no trial to pray, no trouble to read the Word of God; it is not a hard thing to go to the place of worship. With the Psalmist, I say “I was glad when the said to me, let us go into the house of the Lord.”

We should remember that the punishment Jesus bore was inflicted not by the Father but by those who crucified him. The abuse came not from divine but human hands. This is the point that Mel Gibson was trying to make during the filming of The Passion of the Christ. At a critical moment, when the nails are being driven into Jesus’ hands, it is Mel Gibson’s hand that is photographed hammering the first nail. This was the director’s way of demonstrating that it was he who made Christ suffer so. It was our sins that put him there.
