  • THE LAW

    • HOW THE LAW LEADS TO GOD?

Redmeption
REDMEPTION

re·deemPronunciation Key  (r -d m )tr.v.re·deemed,re·deem·ing,re·deems

  • To turn in (coupons, for example) and receive something in exchange.

  • To fulfill (a pledge, for example).

  • To convert into cash: redeem stocks.

  • To set free; rescue or ransom.

    • What are we saved from?

    • Why are we redeemed?


The trinity in the work of redemption
THE TRINITY IN THE WORK OF REDEMPTION

  • Always working together.

    • Father is the Initial Cause.

    • Son is the mediating cause.

    • Sprit completes the work.

  • The work of Redemption

    • The Father Desires all men to be saved. (2Peter 3:9)

    • The Son was sent to be the ultimate sacrifice, so that all men may be saved. (John 3:16)

    • The Spirit:

      • Prepared a body for Jesus, through the impregnation of the virgin Mary.

      • Convicts People to come to Christ (since nothing in men’s sinful heart will attract him to God)


God desires for man
GOD DESIRES FOR MAN

  • VERY IMPORTANT: GOD MAD MADE MAN FOR HIS PLEASURE.

    • He didn’t need man (unlike a “monad”.)

    • He foresaw what God will do.

  • To commune with Man(& women) in eternity. (Genesis Chapter 2-3)

    *But God knew that man was going to sin.

  • For man to be holy just as HE is holy.(Lev 20:26)

    *But God knew that man was going to sin.


God s desire for man cont
GOD’S DESIRE FOR MAN (cont.)

  • In the end, his plan is still fulfilled. (Ephesians 1:4)

    • Man is able to be with God for eternity.

    • Man is still able to be holy.

    • Both are accomplished in Christ

  • k


SIN

  • ARCHARY TERM that means “missing the Mark”.

  • SIN IS DISOBEDIENCE OF GOD’S LAW.

    • Sin of commission- things you weren’t supposed to do, but still did. (thou shall not)

    • Sin of omission-things you were supposed to do, but didn’t do. (thou shall)

    • (examples)

  • ENTERED THE LIVES OF MEN THOUGH ADAM –Romans 5:12

    • From then it infected us like a disease.

      • Death crept in (the wages of sin is death)

    • And we’ve been passing it down ever since.

  • B


Sin accomplishes two things
SIN ACCOMPLISHES TWO THINGS:

  • GUILT

    • Subjective (different effects)

    • Can be Suppressed

  • PUNISHMENT

    • Cause & Effect. (Natural Law)

    • Spiritual death: Sin separates Man from God.

      • I am the way the truth and LIFE….

      • Sin separates us from God

      • Physically alive but spiritually dead--- Valley of Dry Bones.

    • Eternal Death: The end result of Spiritual death. Basically hell.


Sin and the law
SIN AND THE LAW

  • The Law was designed to bring lead us God, but not in the obvious way (to do good and please God.)

    • The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law.(1 Cor15:56)

    • Therefore no one will be declared righteous in his sight by observing the law; rather, through the law we become conscious of sin. (Rom 3:20)

    • The Law made us aware of sin. (Romans 7:7)

    • Because law brings wrath. And where there is no law there is no transgression. (Rom 4:15)

    • Even worse- If you break one commandment you broke it all (James 2:10)

  • *the Tree of the knowledge of good and evil

    Law= knowing what is right and wrong.


The law leads us to god
THE LAW LEADS US TO GOD

  • If this is all true How does the Law lead us to God?

    • You realize that you cannot make it on your own.

    • Your Good is not good enough.

    • You need a bridge to get you across this wide separation.

    • You need a savior.

  • GOD SENT HIS SON.


The need
THE NEED

  • THERE IS SIN

  • THERE IS LAW (THAT DOESN’T MAKE ANYONE RIGHTEOUS)

  • THERE IS PUNISHMENT

  • THERE IS THE INABILITY OF MAN

  • THERE IS A NEED FOR A SAVIOR.


God provides a way
GOD PROVIDES A WAY

  • “ For onto us a child is born, unto us a son is given”. (Isaiah 9:6)

    • Doesn’t mean the same thing.

    • The Physical Jesus was born…

    • The son (God the Sod) has always existed- John 1:1

  • JOHN 3:16- For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son…(you know the rest).

  • s


Old testament law
OLD TESTAMENT LAW

  • 2 Main ideas that keep popping up.

  • PRIEST AND PROPHETS (Number 3)

    • SINFUL MAN COULDN’T GO STRAIGHT TO HOLY GOD

    • BRIDGES OVER THE GAP OF SIN

  • SACRIFICE (Leviticus)

    • HOLY GOD CAN’T TOLERATE SIN SOMETHING MUST DIE.

    • SUBSTITUTE: Symbolized death for the sinner.

    • HAD REQUIREMENTS

      • CLEAN / SANCTIFIED

      • NO DEFORMATIES

      • MALE

      • LAYING OF HANDS


Jesus and the law
JESUS AND THE LAW

  • Read Hebrews 7:23-28 / 10:11-14

    • Because he lives forever, he is a priest forever.

    • Because he was a perfect man, he was a perfect sacrifice…. (LAMB OF GOD)

  • God designed a flawless introduction of a savior into the world of man.

    *Just as through one man sin entered the world, also through one man all are saved.(Rom 5:18-19)

  • The relationship of Jesus & the (old) Law.

    • The (old) Law was only designed to lead us to Christ. (Galatians 3:24-25)

    • ;

  • Jesus fulfilled the Law.

    * (I did not come to abolish the law but to fulfill it. Matthew 5:17)


Genius of god with the law
GENIUS OF GOD WITH THE LAW

  • God introduced the Laws in the past

    • So that the transition was seamless.

    • Couldn’t be a seen as a new idea.

  • God shows he is in control.

    • He stayed within his own laws. (omniscience)

    • Power- he can move things around like that.

    • Knows the past /present /future.

    • God does not change his mind/plans ..otherwise he is:

      • Unpredictable

      • He doesn’t know

  • This shows that God planned it all along.

    (1pet 1:19-21)


In christ alone
IN CHRIST ALONE

  • Acts 4:12Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved.”

  • One Mediator… 1Tim 2:5

  • He is the only one who could/have fulfilled both requirements.

    • Because has eternal he is a priest forever

    • Because he was man, his death was a sufficient sacrifice for our sins.

  • This exclusivity offends others (will cover later)


Grace gaining something you don t deserve
GRACE- gaining something you don’t deserve

  • Saved by grace and not by works so that no man can boast (Eph 2:9)

  • No way to accomplish our own righteousness (Isaiah 64:6)

    • The Law was not designed to make one righteous.

    • Breaking one law means you broke them all. (James 2:10)

    • Everyone has broken it. (Romans 3:23)

  • It wasn’t by our own efforts or goodness are we able to get to God.


Kinsman redeemer
KINSMAN REDEEMER

  • Selling of the Land (Leviticus 25:23-25)

    • God gave them land.

    • If they became poor and had to sell it:

      • It cannot be sold permanently.

      • If the owner can’t buy it back, a relative can buy it back and preserve its original ownership.

  • Ruth & Boaz (Book of Ruth)

    • Husband died and had to sell the land

    • Boaz was a close relative and was able to return the land back to the family

  • Jesus: the Kinsmen redeemer.

    • God owned us.

    • We became separated by sin.

    • Jesus bought us back by his blood.


Summary
SUMMARY

  • God knew before hand that man will sin because of freewill. He already had a plan.

  • God still made man for his purpose.

  • When Adam sinned, God set his plan in action.

  • He introduced the foundation early in the Law.

  • The same Law

    • Lead men to God by exposing sin.

    • Made the intro of the savior to be a familiar concept.

    • Priest

    • Sacrifice

  • Jesus is the only one that done that.

    • Only Mediator between God and Man

    • Only name that men might be saved

    • Man is still able to be holy.

    * We are redeemed!


Wiifm
WIIFM

  • Whatever god plans he fulfills.

  • it causes me to lean on God more, realizing that I cannot be good on my own.

  • God wants me to be with him for eternity.

  • He loves me so much that he gave his son.
