Divisions of The Law

This entry is part 3 of 8 in the series The Law and The Believer

Divisions of The Law

Being that it is impossible for modern day believers to adhere to certain parts of the law, such as the legal portions, which cannot be enforced, then if one attempts to render the law operational today, one must divide the law into the part(s) which are obeyed by believers and the part(s) which are not.

Definition and Preview of The Law

This entry is part 2 of 8 in the series The Law and The Believer

Definition:  The Law

“The Law” and “the Law of Moses” are common phrases throughout the Bible.  The Law is referenced well over one hundred times in both testaments, and is actually referenced more in the New Testament by one of these titles than in the Old.  As such, clearly the Law is a continual reality throughout biblical testimony.  It is not a theme that withers and goes away.

The Second Resurrection & Judgment

The lake of fire is the second death. 15 If anyone’s name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire. Continue reading

The Judgments of Believers

This entry is part 18 of 20 in the series Spiritual Realms

The Judgments of Believers

The first question one would ask when discussing the “judgment” of saints is, “for what?”  Clearly scripture teaches that believers are not judged for their sin[1].  Christ alone received the judgment for sin on the cross.  Yet, scripture teaches that believers will undergo judgment.  The purpose of judgment for believers will be demonstrated in this section to be a judgment for reward rather than a judgment for punishment.

The Term

In Hebrew, the term translated “heaven” or “heavens” is shamayim, which is used about four hundred times in the Old Testament.  “Heaven” is likewise translated into English from the Greek term ouranos or derivatives of it in the New Testament.  Ouranos and shamayim have three distinct meanings in scripture.  In both Greek and Hebrew culture and language, heaven was distinguished contextually to be one of three places: Continue reading
