All who believe in Christ are complete, and their sins are removed as far as the east is from the west because they are nailed to the cross….

10..and in Him you have been made complete, and He is the head over all rule and authority;

11..and in Him you were also circumcised with a circumcision made without hands, in the removal of the body of the flesh by the circumcision of Christ;

12..having been buried with Him in baptism, in which you were also raised up with Him through faith in the working of God, who raised Him from the dead.

13..When you were dead in your transgressions and the uncircumcision of your flesh, He made you alive together with Him, having forgiven us all our transgressions,

14..having canceled out the certificate of debt consisting of decrees against us, which was hostile to us; and He has taken it out of the way, having nailed it to the cross.” Col 2:10-14

In view of our Lord’s victory and His triumphant defeat of the curse of the Law and sin and death; believers now live by the Law of Christ’s Holy Spirit…

The Law of the Holy Spirit has now brought us to life, making us a NEW creation…

“For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set you free from the law of sin and of death.” Rom 8:2

“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.” 2 Cor 5:17

So now, there is no more need to go back under the requirements of the Law and the traditions of a legalistic spirit…

We now have been set free from the spirit of the law’s bondage and its self-imposed condemnation !

“For if the ministry of condemnation has glory, much more does the ministry of righteousness abound in glory.” 2 Cor 3:9

No outward observance, no human work, no ritualistic regulations, will EVER release you from the burden of sin nor can it nor will it, sanctify you with God…

Every Sabbath when the Law of Moses is read, a veil lies on the heart of those of the Old Covenant observances…{TORAH}

“But to this day whenever Moses is read, a veil lies over their heart;”
2 Cor 3:15

Now, the New Covenant comes with a NEW Spirit that is much more glorious because it is the ministry of righteousness….

“The Spirit and the water and the blood; and the three are in agreement.”

1 JN 5:8

For where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty….

God calls all who believe in His Son…”righteous”, and so now the Holy Spirit indwells us with His power to live righteously…

The Spirit gives us freedom from sin, death and the condemnation of the Law…never to be enslaved to the Law again !!

For those who are enslaved by the “works” of the Law, are the children of Mount Sinai and under the ”bond” woman, who will only reap death because the Law can only bring wrath and stir up sin…

24..This is allegorically speaking, for these women are two covenants: one proceeding from Mount Sinai bearing children who are to be slaves; she is Hagar.
25..Now this Hagar is Mount Sinai in Arabia and corresponds to the present Jerusalem, for she is in slavery with her children.” Gal 4:24-25

“For the law brings wrath, but where there is no law there is no transgression.” Rom 4:15

For Christ is the end of the Law for righteousness, to everyone who believes, that is, that Christ fulfilled ALL the requirements of the Law..

“For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.” JN 1:17
