Legal Rights to the Spirit of Life – 7

April 4, 2020

The very concept of being Sin Free by the Spirit of Life creates outrage from some Believers, and scepticism from others. Many have such a Sin Consciousness that they are unaware that the Book of Romans is a roadmap showing Christians precisely how to be free of Sin and all forms of bondage by the Power of the Spirit of Life.

Romans 8 V2 AMP – “For the Law of the Spirit of Life which is in Christ Jesus, the Law of our New Being…,

Some ignorant Christians have challenged me over our Spiritual Legal Rights, saying such things as, “I’ve been going to Church for 40 years and never once have I ever heard any Minister discuss our Legal Rights in Christ, therefore they must not exist.” Also, “Spiritual Legal Rights don’t exist in the Bible, Paul doesn’t talk about Spiritual Laws, just concepts like Love and Peace.” As well this classic misunderstanding from a supposed Reverend, “I’m not following any Rules and Spiritual Laws”.

It doesn’t matter whether we think that we aren’t following any Spiritual Laws, so, therefore they don’t apply to us. That would be like saying to the Police if you were caught speeding, that the Laws don’t apply to you. We are either operating under the Law of the Spirit of Life which is in Christ Jesus, or the Law of Sin and Death, there is no middle ground option. Why did Paul call the Spirit of Life a Law, if there are no Spiritual Laws or Legal Rights? The Spirit of Life functions in our Life according to Spiritual Law, not as many suppose in a whimsical, fairytale style fashion. You have a Legal Right in Christ Jesus to the Spirit of Life. You receive the Spirit of Life by the Law of Faith, given to you by the Grace of Christ.

The Spirit of Life in Christ Jesus has made you a New Creation, the Law of our New Being. You are now filled with Light, Grace and Peace by the Spirit of Life, the darkness has gone. If you are held in bondage under the Law of Sin and Death, then no amount of meditation, the lighting of incense, prayer beads, chanting of mantras, or other religious exercises can help you escape the darkness within.

The Rolling Stones in their hit song, ‘Paint it Black’, told it like it is, ” I look inside myself and see my heart is black”. Meditation under the Law of Sin and Death takes you further and further down into the abyss of total darkness and despair. It is a Spiritual Law, you cannot escape it, without calling upon the Grace of Christ Jesus.

When you are trapped under the Law of Sin and Death your whole perception of life is negative, and you are open to delusions of all kinds. ‘Paint it Black’ continues, “I see my red door I must have it painted black”. The Law of Sin produces the death and darkness in our Souls that make us see everything under the gloom of pessimism, we can no longer see the beauty and colours given to us by the Grace of the Spirit of Life. In fact, we fight against the Law of the Spirit of Life, because it shines the Light on our darkness. “Paint it Black’ describes this in brutal reality, “Maybe then I’ll fade away and not have to face the facts”.

Rather than hide yourself from the Light of the Spirit of Life, why not open up and receive the Grace of Christ who will deliver you from the Law of Death. It’s not easy to defeat the Law of darkness and depression by self-effort because it’s actually impossible to free yourself from this Law without Grace. ‘Paint it Black’ – “It’s not easy facin’ up, when your world is black”. Your whole world can become filled with Light and colour again if you decide to choose to receive the Spirit of Life by Grace, and put the Law of Sin behind you. It’s tragic today that some people have been told to think that living a lifestyle of Sin is real freedom. There is no liberty being trapped in the Law of Death, as true freedom is found by not being enslaved or imprisoned by the Law of Sin.

‘Paint it Black’ continues, “I could not foresee this thing happening to you”.  You didn’t realize that opening the door to the Law of Death was going to bring such havoc into your life, but now you have an escape into the Spirit of Life in Christ Jesus by Grace.

Perhaps the songwriters may have unwittingly given us a glimpse of Grace in the next verse, “If I look hard enough into the settin’ sun my love will laugh with me before the mornin’ comes” If you look into the Light Of Grace your heart will be filled with Love and Joy of Jesus.
