Law and the Christian

Rating: 3 votes, 4.33 average.
How was Israel saved? By works? No. By the law? No.
They were saved by the blood of the Passover Lamb. In order to be saved by that blood they had to have faith in God's word that:
a. There was a definite threat of death.(Rom 6:23)
b. That the application of the blood of the Lamb would indeed protect them.
" For even Christ our passover is sacrificed for us:".
It was after they were saved that God showed them His law. They could not bypass Sinai. "This is how you now must live" God said. Obey Me and live, and I will lead you to the promised land. What happened to those who did not obey? They fell in the wilderness. "But they had the blood of the Lamb to cover them" some may say. That was not enough was it.Disobedience nullified the blood and they entered not into God's promises.
These things were written for our example,that we may learn from them.
Heb 4:11 Let us labour therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief.

Now that we are saved also by the blood of the Passover Lamb let us not bypass Sinai or think that we can ignore God's requirements. Know assuredly that those who do, though they may claim salvation, will not enter in to the promised land.

    Hello Brakelite; Nice entry:

    Right so we can put it this way: When they fullfilled the req. to be born again as explained in Exodus 12 I guess.
    In a study I heard once there were 6 steps in the passover as an object lesson of the re-born experience [sorry i forgot them^_^] as Christ said to Nicodemus: Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. John 3:3.

    So in the Passover they were to be born again, and in the red sea they were baptized, and then as you say in the Sinai, they were given light.

    Thank you Brakelite.
