Lamentations 3:22 It is of the Lord’s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not.
Lamentations 3:23 they are new every morning: great is they faithfulness.

Mercy loves and grace pardons. God looks past our sinful nature and goes straight to the heart of a persons character to know there is hope for everyone of us if we would only come boldly to his throne of grace and surrender this fleshly nature and allow God to cloth us in his righteousness as our own righteousness is as a filthy rag to God, Isaiah 64:6; Titus 3:5, 6.

It’s not God that condemns us as in the flesh as we are already condemned by our fleshly sin nature we are all born with, but does not activate until we come into the knowledge of sin for the word says there is none that are righteous, Romans 3:10-20.

The washing of regeneration by that of Gods Holy Spirit, John 3:5 cleanses us of our sin nature that has caused all to sin as sin entered the world by one and continues through the generations. Jesus whom forgives our confessed sin sanctifying as God sets us apart through His mercy to be called heirs to the throne of grace through his son Jesus Christ who laid his own life down so we could have life eternal with the Father.

Sin separates us from God because God is a spirit and can only recognize his own children by what spirit is living in their hearts. We have to renew, rebirth - born again, Gods Spirit within us in order to be called a child of God and see the kingdom of heaven. We now put off the old man (flesh) and put on the new man (Spirit), Colossians 3:1-17. We are renewed by the word (Spirit of God) and through the Holy Spirit teaching us of all things, John 14:26.

Matthew 5:1-16 blessed is the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy. When our hearts are right with the Lord then he has compassion on all his children and whatever you ask for in his name he will meet your needs, but one important factor in this is that you also have to have mercy for those who trespass against you to forgive what others do against you, Mark 11:22-26.

You can study the Mercy seat of God in the OT and how the sacrifices were made for the atonement of sin to see how figurative this was to the coming Messiah (Christ Jesus) who is now our mercy seat through his birth, death and resurrection as Jesus was made the final sacrificial lamb for the atonement of all men and gathered all our sins and put them upon himself and died to set us free from sin and God raised him again on the third day so we could take part in his death and resurrection, which means when we accept Jesus we die to our old fleshly ways and now are resurrected to live with him for eternity.

God’s love is not limited, but we choose to limit Gods love by separating ourselves from his mercy and grace. Jude vs. 17-23 Keep yourselves in the love of God always looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternity.

By keeping our self in the righteousness of God as we walk in the Spirit and show forth the Godly fruits of the Spirit and not the ungodly fruits of the flesh. Galatians 5:13-26

How do we walk in the greatest commandment of love?
This is turning into a bit of foolishness as you already know the answers to your questions. These are questions a babe in Christ would ask and I know you are mature enough in your own studies to already know how we walk in love.
Matthew 22:36 Master, which is the great commandment in the law? 37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. 38 This is the first and great commandment. 39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

It is never foolish to ask a question! There are many attempting to teach with scriptures but not teaching how to do the what to do that the scriptures ask of us to do.

If the Believer does not understand this, all scriptures become enticing words to the flesh, that will be attempted by the flesh to perform (Romans 8:2-3, 1 Cor. 2:4). The Believer now becomes a transgressor (Gal. 2:18). Under Grace, the Holy Spirit carries out the will of God in the Believer (Romans 8:2). Under the Law, the flesh (your own ability) carry's out the Law of God. Under Grace, the New Covenant, if Christ is a Law keeper, than I am a Law keeper because I am in Him (Romans 6:3-5, Gal. 2:20-21).

It is by "Grace" through "Faith" that the "Temple" is built. The "Temple was to be built under Solomon; not the sound of a hammer, not the sound of a tool, i.e., not one sound of mans labor.

The only thing that God will accept from any Believer is "Faith" in His Son Jesus and the Cross of Calvary where the victory was won, i.e., The Finished Work, i.e., The Blood of Jesus.


Because the Believer is in Christ, all commandments are kept by the Holy Spirit which is impossible for any Believer to keep. If Christ is a law-keeper than the Believer is a law-keeper.

Again It is by "Grace" through "Faith" that the "Temple" is built. Not by labor - not by performance - not by Christian disciplines.

We must not stop the "Golden Oil" coming from the "Bowl of the Baptism of the Holy Spirit" that has seven pipes leading into our earthly vessels - both the will and to do.

In this “sevenfold fullness,” we find all the “help” that we need in order to live this life and to be what we ought to be in the Lord ((Isa. 11:1-2, Zechariah 4:1-14, Jn. 14:16-18, Rev. 5:6).

Tragically, the modern Church seeks to live for God without the help of this “sevenfold fullness.” Even though the Holy Spirit most definitely resides in the heart and life of every single Believer, irrespective of the spiritual condition of such a Believer, still, what He can do is only potential. In other words, His help is not automatic.

But every single Believer can have this “sevenfold fullness” if the Believer will place his faith absolutely and exclusively in the Cross. The Holy Spirit always works within the parameters of the Finished Work of Christ. The Cross ever being the Object of our Faith, then the Holy Spirit will work mightily on our behalf, giving us the benefit of “His sevenfold fullness,” but only if our faith is properly placed in Christ and the Cross. He tells us this in Romans 8:2.”

His sevenfold fullness.” Those attributes are: “Spirit, Wisdom, Understanding, Counsel, Might, Knowledge, and Fear.”

I never said it is foolish to ask questions, but that it seems to be foolish coming from you who already knows the answers to all you have asked of which I feel I have answered in simplicity of the scriptures.

The OP is about God's mercy, not the teachings of law or whether to keep all of the law. That is another topic. Without first understanding God's mercy and grace then how does one move forward in their walk with the Lord.

I already explained about walking in the flesh vs walking in the Spirit and about we who are in Christ being the Temple of God. I've already explained the washing of regeneration through Christ as we put off the old man and put on the renewed inner man. Grace and mercy is about God's salvation to all who will come to Him and learn of Him by having a personal relationship with Him.

Please do not derail this topic by going into all the things you have posted about the Golden Oil and the Bowl of Baptism and the seven spirits of God given to the Church. This thread is about the mercy of God and how we establish that Spiritual relationship with Him.

By all means you can start another thread about the importance of what you posted, but let's stick to that of the OP.

Remember Jesus said, "Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the Kingdom of Heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the Kingdom of Heaven.

You are telling us what to do, but how to do it is law."Grace" through "Faith" that the "Temple" is built. Faith in Christ and Him Crucified.

Out of 603,550 men who were readied for war that came out of Egypt under the power of God (Numbers 1:44-46), only two took their inheritance; Joshua (a type of Christ) and Caleb (a type of the body of Christ) (Matthew 7:14).

Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

Note: Only two finished with "GRACE!"


Amen

For the last time, the OP is not about the law or commandments, but that of God's mercy and grace and what that means for us. It's about God's plan of salvation through Jesus in whom is our faith that we build upon.

I am asking nicely to please quit derailing this thread and making it all about what you want to teach about laws and commandments of God. I am trying to teach others that there is hope for them through God's mercy and grace which is His love for us even though we do not deserve it.
