Lets Consider God's Law

What about God's Law?

What was Christ's attitude toward God's law?
"I delight to do thy will, O my God: yea, thy law is within my heart". Psalm 40:8

How did Jesus address God's law in His most famous sermon?

"Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill. For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled". Matthew 5:17,18

How did God make His law known?

"And he gave unto Moses, when he had made an end of communing with him upon mount Sinai, two tables of testimony, tables of stone, written with the finger of God". Exodus 31:18

Note these facts about God's law:
No human element was involved in the formulating of the Ten Commandments as found in Exodus 20:1-17. Everything else in the Bible was written by the prophets. Not so with the Ten Commandments! If some parts of the Word of God were purer than others, this would be the ultimate!

Government cannot exist without law and order. Society cannot function without rules. Men cannot do business without certain guidelines. Children cannot play games without rules. Even Nature has her laws! Should we be surprised then that God governs His Universe by law?

The Ten Commandment law, written on stone by God's own finger, was placed INSIDE the ark.

"At that time the Lord said unto me, Hew thee two tables of stone like unto the first.... And I will write on the tables the words, that were in the first tables which thou brakest, and thou shalt put them in the ark. And he wrote on the tables... the ten commandments... and the Lord gave them unto me. And I... came down from the mount, and put the tables in the ark which I had made". Deuteronomy 10:1-5

A second "law" was written by Moses in a book (instead of on stone), and placed IN THE SIDE of the ark.
"And it came to pass, when Moses had made an end of writing the words of this law in a book, until they were finished, That Moses commanded the Levites, which bare the ark of the covenant of the Lord, saying, Take this book of the law, and put it in the side of the ark of the covenant of the Lord your God, that it may be there for a witness against thee". Deuteronomy 31:24-26 - Finding Peace within.
