Which “law” do you prefer; the “law of sin and death” or “the law of the Spirit of Life”? As there is then, now, no condemnation for those who are in Messiah, we are free to walk as Abraham did, in Royal Covenant Torah. Only through Yahusha’s blood ratification, can we return to Torah that transforms our inward man, leading us to right action.

Romans from a Torah Covenant Perspective
– Chapter 8 • Part 1 –

Romans 8:1 There is, then, now no condemnation to those in Messiah Yahusha , who walk not according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit.

A historical event has transpired affecting the functional, conditional condemnation in one aspect of the Torah – the BoL: Deuteronomy 31:26  Take this book of the law, and put it in the side of the ark of the covenant of יהוה your elohim, that it may be there for a witness against thee.

Believers are no longer under the condemnation of one aspect of the Torah, the BOL – two different relationships to two different aspects of Torah!

Romans 8:2  for the law of the Spirit of the life in Messiah Yahusha did set me free from the law of the sin and of the death;

What the letter is communicating here is one of two things:

  1. Spiritual constants ‘laws’. Contrasting two spiritual principles at odds with one another:
    • the first spiritual constant – the view that ‘law’ ‘nomos’ isn’t speaking of Torah, but of ‘principal’ or ‘rule’ in relation to two spiritual laws, or spiritual constants (i.e gravity etc ‘what goes up must come down.’) The law of the Spirit is the spiritual constant alive in a person who’s accepted Yahusha and been set free from the condemnation in the BoL, they’re spiritually regenerated and have received the Holy Spirit.
    • The second spiritual constant: is once a person sins then the binding authority of sin will lead to condemnation and death. In sum: two scriptural laws,  principals, or powers are at work.
  2. Two functional conditions of the ‘Torah.’ Two modes of operation for the Torah – BoC – BoL.
    • a person is regenerated by the Spirit to covenant Torah by Yahusha – the law of the Spirit of life.
    • a person unregenerate, living in sin and disobedience is outside of the BoC and still within the law of sin and death the BoL where the condemnation of the law resides and judges the rebellious unto death.

Romans from a Torah Covenant Perspective – “All about the Ruach/Spirit”

The Holy Spirit herself doth testify? We take a pause in our study of Romans to reflect on verses 16 and 17 in the eighth chapter to focus specifically on the Ruach Ha Kodesh/Holy Spirit. Join us as we test the traditional understandings of the nature of the Ruach/Spirit against the whole of Scripture and the truth of the text.

How should we define biblical Israel? Shaul/Paul draws some distinctions between a physical and spiritual Israel, in order to demonstrate the necessity of an individual to belong to both, to be a fully regenerated Israelite.

How can an adulteress bride return to her husband? Shaul/Paul uses his intimate knowledge of Torah to help the audience awaken to the reality of redemption through Yahusha. If we interpret the verses without a proper knowledge of Torah, we run the risk of creating a false dichotomy between law and grace.

Romans from a Torah Covenant Perspective – Chapter 6

What does ‘under the law’/‘hupo nomon’ really mean? Traditional approaches to the text have resulted in doctrine that is not consistent with the context of the whole of Scripture. If we reject Yahusha’s inauguration of the New Covenant, we bind ourselves to the curses that are contained in the Book of the Law. Grace cannot be divorced from it’s inception point, national covenant blessing.

Romans from a Torah Covenant Perspective – Chapter 5

Is Torah synonymous with The Law of Moses? Limiting out understanding of these terms cannot be limited to the first five books of the Bible. Rabbinical tradition inherited by the Institutional Church has created a paradigm that has impacted our ability to rightly divide Scripture. Shaul/Paul admonishes us to seek a better reconciliation; by covenant, through the blood of Yahusha.

Whose faith do you want to have? Shaul/Paul understood that mere adherence to a set of standards was not congruent with faith in Messiah. Salvation is not determined by works, heritage, tradition, or a single prayer you utter. As we are called from the nations to return to being biblical Israel, it is the faith and fidelity of our father, Abraham, which we must have.

What are the “ergon nomou/works of the law”? How we answer this question will determine how we enter into a covenant relationship with Yahusha. His blood and the zenith of His righteousness allows us to return to Covenant Torah. Will we be faithful and walk in His commandments?

How will we be judged, with or without the law? Shaul/Paul makes the distinction for judgment that correlates with the prophets and the revelation to Yochannan/John. All will be judged according to the books and what is written in them, but only those in the Book of the Covenant will be blotted out of the Book of Works.
