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.

Who are the people of Yah? Shaul/Paul understood that there was a seamless priestly garment that was a covering for all of Israel. One Messiah, One Covenant, One People. Yahuwah will prune and graft in, but will always be focused on the branches of Isreal, rooted in Yahusha.

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.

Have you come into the community? Despite current popular doctrines, a walk of faith is not simply “me and Jesus”. Shaul/Paul sides with Yahusha in gathering believers together for corporate unity under Messiah. Division becomes a byproduct of a person being called into the Israel of Elohim.

Does your zealousness for the Father and His Torah cause you to lose discernment when it comes to the Son? On its own, Torah will not lead us to total righteousness. Only covenant relationship through Yahusha will allow us to enter into forensic righteousness before Yahuwah.

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.

Do you bear the Root, or is the Root bearing you? What Yahuwah planted one Israel that became two nations through division and eventually both nations were laid bare before all the nations, as branches both natural and unnatural or cultivated and uncultivated were cut off. Regardless of what type of branch we are, if we are not connected to the root of that tree which is Messiah, we wither and die.
