CHANGE Of LAW
When Jesus died, there was made “a ‘change of the law.” We are no longer under the Old Testament law of Moses (Heb 7:12). Jesus was “the end of the law to them that believe,” having “nailed the old law to the cross” (Col 2:14-17; Eph 2:14-16; Rom 15:4). Anyone who fails to follow the gospel of Christ, but rather continues holding on to ”observe things of the old law, “is severed from Christ” and Is “fallen from grace” (Gal -5:4). These are strong and true warnings. The old law Included Genesis through Psalms and Malachi. The books of Romans, Galatians, Ephesians. arid Hebrews have, much on this theme. Jews who had followed the old law but ‘who had now accepted Jesus must cease following the old system of laws.
SPECIFICALLY, what things are changed from the old law of Moses to the New “law of Christ,” (Rom 8:2) Sabbath days, circumcision, burning of incense and — animal sacrifices are no longer binding. Christ’s law Includes all men, not just the Jews. In worship, the Instruments of music of David were done away, and singing from the heart took their place in the worship in Christ’s church. The superiority of the law of Christ is repeatedly shown all through the books of Hebrews and Galatians especially.
