The Law of Sin and Death vs. The Law of the Spirit of Life
by Rav Sha'ul

 

What the Apostle Paul was explaining is that the “decrees” found within The Law are covered by the blood of The Passover Lamb making whole The Law. So what we have is:

The Law of Sin and Death – This is The Law which is “weakened by our flesh”. Our flesh being hostile to The Law making active the “decree” against us for transgressing it. So, The Law of Sin and Death (sin and you die by decree) is The Law with active decrees prior to Yahusha’s blood covering them. We were being held captive to sin and death by the decrees.

The Law of the Spirit of Life – is The Law with the decrees covered by the blood of the Lamb making The Law whole again not abolished in any way. The weakness in The Law (our flesh) has been accounted for and we through the blood of the lamb are restored to perfect obedience to The Law. We, therefore, are heir to the promises of The Law for perfect obedience… that promise is Eternal Life. So The Law of the Spirit which leads to Life is The Law with the decrees “nailed to the cross”.

Paul explains this further in the Book of Romans:

Romans 8

Life Through the Spirit

8 Therefore, there is now no condemnation (no active decrees in The Law) for those who are in (covenant with) Yahusha the Messiah, 2 because through Yahusha the law of the Spirit who gives life (The Law with the decrees nailed to the cross) has set you free from the law of sin and death (The Law of Sin and you Die by Divine Decree). 3 For what the law was powerless to do (give life for obedience) because it was weakened by the flesh (which is against The Law of God and we transgress it), God did by sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh (as a human) to be a sin offering (the scapegoat / Passover Lamb). And so he condemned sin in the flesh (by dying without sin through Mikveh), 4 in order that the righteous requirement of the law (it has not been abolished, righteousness is still obedience to The Law) might be fully met in us (we would be restored to perfection), who do not live according to the flesh (which is hostile to The Law) but according to the Spirit (whose mind is set on The Law as we obey it in love not obligation).

5 Those who live according to the flesh (transgress The Law) have their minds set on what the flesh desires (weakening the power of The Law to grant eternal life); but those who live in accordance with the Spirit have their minds (Law is written on our minds and heart) set on what the Spirit desires (defined in The Law where Eternal Life is promised for perfect obedience). 6 The mind governed by the flesh is death (the penalty levied by the decrees in The Law for transgressing it), but the mind governed by the Spirit is life and peace (the promise in The Law for obedience). 7 The mind governed by the flesh is hostile to God; (because) it does not submit to God’s law, nor can it do so. 8 Those who are in the realm of the flesh cannot please God (because pleasing YHVH is defined as obedience to His Law Hebrews 2:13 i.e. righteousness or right standing or pleasing YHVH is keeping The Law)

What Paul is describing is what he called a “two edged sword” in

Hebrews 4:

12 For the word of God (The Torah, there was no NT until 300 years later) is alive and active (in no way abolished). Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul (your fleshly will) and spirit (The Will of YHVH), joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart (The Law has been written on our minds and heart Hebrews 10:16, Jeremiah 31:33). 13 Nothing in all creation is hidden from God’s sight. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of him to whom we must give account.

The two edges of this “sword” are:

1. you transgress His Law and you die

2. you faithfully (in covenant with Yahusha) obey it and you live.

One side is The Law with active decrees “Law of Sin and Death”. The other side is The Law with the decrees nailed to the cross “Law of Spirit of Life
