THE LAW OF HIS GOD
Then this Daniel was preferred above the presidents and princes, because an excellent spirit was in him; and the king thought to set him over the whole realm. Then the presidents and princes sought to find occasion against Daniel concerning the kingdom; but they could find none occasion nor fault; forasmuch as he was faithful, neither was there any error or fault found in him. Then said these men, we shall not find any occasion against this Daniel, except we find it against him concerning the law of his God (Daniel 6:3-5).
The scriptures say ‘We shall not find any occasion against this Daniel, except we find it against him concerning the law of his God’ Hebrews 10:16 -20 says; ‘This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith the Lord, I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them; And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more. Now where remission of these is, there is no more offering for sin. Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus, By a new and living way, which he hath consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh; And having an high priest over the house of God; Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water.’
What comes first is when God puts His laws in your heart the next thing He does is He forgets your sin. This is because the new creature is not given laws, the laws are put in him- The law is an intrinsic part of the new creature. The Bible speaks in Isaiah 43:1(KJV) But now thus saith the LORD that created thee, O Jacob, and he that formed thee, O Israel, Fear not: for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name; thou art mine. There is a place where the law of God precedes the relationship and it comes to a point where God owns what He has put in you. God cannot own what He has put against you because He is for you. The Bible says in Colossians 2:14; Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross; When Jesus came He blotted out the handwriting of commandments that was contrary- the law of Moses was against and contrary. Nothing in the new creature is against him; it can only work for him. The Bible says in Ezekiel Chapter 36: 27; That He will put His Spirit in you and cause you to walk in His statutes. There is something in you that causes you not to sin. It’s an error to tell a Christian what they ought not to do, you need to just tell them how they are configured. The law of God is for you!
Romans 8:1 (KJV) There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. The word there for walking is not doing. The word there is Peripateo meaning conducting. So it means they do not conduct themselves as fleshly men. It’s not about the action. Nature precedes action; action does not precede nature. You’re a thief not because you stole but because of your Adamic nature.
Romans 8: 11 in the Message version says; When God lives and breathes in you (and he does, as surely as he did in Jesus), you are delivered from that dead life. With his Spirit living in you, your body will be as alive as Christ’s! When you have the Spirit of God you are as alive as Christ. He is for you; the law against you is nailed you are no longer a save to sin but you are now slaves to righteousness. You must be conscious of the Spirit of God in you. Stop being conscious of yourself and start to enjoy God!
