The “Christ-As-You” Life! November 5 Notes from Papa via Paul Gray
To My most wonderful child, who is the apple of My eye,
As you are learning how to live the “Christ-as-you” life, I want to continually remind you to have nothing to do with the old covenant! You can certainly learn how not to relate to Me by studying how religious people have tried to gain and maintain My favor by doing certain things and avoiding other things. Just never do that yourself!
The Old Covenant of the Law was only given to the Hebrew people, and then only because they asked for it, preferring to relate to Me via their performance rather than as My dearly loved children and friends. The only purpose of that Law was to show them that they couldn’t keep it and thus needed a Savior to make their right relationship with Me a reality.
I want you to absolutely know that:
- The Old Covenant Law was never for you.
- You have never been and never will be under any law with Me.
- The Law has absolutely no power to help you achieve it.
- There’s nothing you need to try to do or try to avoid to achieve a right relationship with Me.
- You should never try to come up with your own laws that you believe you must keep to gain or maintain a right relationship with Me.
- You should never listen to or believe any other person or organization that tries to convince you that you must do certain things and not do other things in order to please Me.
- Jesus fulfilled the law, made it obsolete, set it aside and abolished it as far as it having anything to do with you. Yes, it still exists in the pages of Scripture, but only as a reminder to people that it’s impossible to keep and cannot help you have a better relationship with Me.
- Rather than giving you a set of rules to follow, My Holy Spirit living in you now continually reminds you of who I am, who you are and that everyone is in Christ, and then shows you how I want you to live in any given moment or situation.
- The only law that exists now is the law of Love, which I have completely fulfilled and continually manifest in you and as you!
As you believe and trust Me regarding these things, you will find yourself experiencing and enjoying real, abundant, supernatural life… life of another kind!
