The point I was attempting to make was that the law was given ONLY to reveal mankind’s sinful condition and their need for a Savior. It was NOT given as a solution to the problem of sin.The law is ONLY a diagnostic tool to show what was wrong but it has NO power or ability to fix the real issue.
point taken ,three amens to your new wording ,,sorry if i came across as harsh
You did not come across harsh at all. You pointed out my error and I corrected it.THANKS!!
These instructions are an example of God's Grace in the Old Testament.There is ONLE ONE solution for mankind's sin and that was solved by God in Christ on the Cross. We are saved, kept, purified, sanctified, made holy and cleansed ONLY by Grace through faith in what God in Christ has already accomplished for us and in us.It is impossible to have a mixture of law and grace. The bible makes its clear that if we are saved by the law then there is no grace. If we are saved by Grace then the law is no longer needed. Under the new covenant Christ makes us a NEW creation by giving us HIS LIFE. Now HE abides in us and sets us free from the domain of sin.Do not forget the the blood of the animals never removed the sins. This blood only covered them for a short time. Heb 9:8-14; "The Holy Ghost this signifying, that the way into the holiest of all was not yet made manifest, while as the first tabernacle was yet standing: Which was a figure for the time then present, in which were offered both gifts and sacrifices, that could not make him that did the service perfect, as pertaining to the conscience; Which stood only in meats and drinks, and divers washings, and carnal ordinances, imposed on them until the time of reformation. But Christ being come an high priest of good things to come, by a greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say, not of this building; Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us. For if the blood of bulls and of goats, and the ashes of an heifer sprinkling the unclean, sanctifieth to the purifying of the flesh: How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?Abraham believed God - not the law. He was justified by faith not the law.
