You should be living above the law! The law does not to apply to you!
I’m talking about the law of sin and death!
There are natural, physical laws all around us that we see in operation every day. There are laws of physics, laws of aerodynamics, laws of biochemistry, and the list goes on and on. For those on this earth that choose, those laws are pretty much all they are familiar with and they are limited to these laws.
For those of us however, who are born again, spirit filled believers that have been taught in the Word, we should know better! You and I know that there are a higher set of laws that are in operation – spiritual laws. These laws can set in motion, alter or negate the natural laws – for either good or bad!
We have all known people who have allowed the spiritual force and law of fear to set in motion the laws of sickness and disease through stress, worry and anxiety that produced all sorts of physical problems in their bodies.
We see other, broader reaching spiritual laws in effect throughout the United States right now. Many people are talking about the lack of rain in many parts of the country. Well, the answer to that can be found in Jeremiah 3:1-3 KJV, “They say, If a man put away his wife, and she go from him, and become another man’s, shall he return unto her again? shall not that land be greatly polluted? but thou hast played the harlot with many lovers; yet return again to me, saith the LORD. Lift up thine eyes unto the high places, and see where thou hast not been lien with. In the ways hast thou sat for them, as the Arabian in the wilderness; and thou hast polluted the land with thy whoredoms and with thy wickedness. Therefore the showers have been withholden, and there hath been no latter rain; and thou hadst a whore’s forehead, thou refusedst to be ashamed.”
An even more over arching spiritual law that affects everything from excessively high gas prices to “supply chain problems” and from shortages of baby formula to mass shootings can be found in Proverbs 29:2 KJV, “When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: But when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn.”
Certain spiritual laws have been set in motion and there is currently a lot of mourning taking place throughout the land at gas pumps, grocery stores, schools and many other places.
BUT . . .
These spiritual laws should have absolutely no effect on us whatsoever!
We are EXEMPT!
All of these wicked laws come under one overriding law called the “law of sin and death.” Turn over to Romans 8 and we’ll look at it.
“For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.” – Romans 8:2 KJV
Yes! I’m already “shoutin’ happy!” FREE!!
You better tighten your seat belt though for this next part! The Greek word translated “free” here in the King James Version can also be translated “to exempt from!” GLORY TO GOD!
Let’s read it that way.
“For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me exempt from the law of sin and death.”
Now, how do we put the law of the Spirit of life into action in our lives? It is basically a 4 step process:
- Put the Word in your heart
- Mix it with faith
- Speak it out your mouth
- Act on it!
We have to remember when we are considering the law of the Spirit of life that Jesus said, “My Words are spirit and they are life.” (John 6:63)
We also know the Word does not work unless it is mixed with faith (Hebrews 4:2) and that faith does not produce results unless it is spoken and acted upon! (Mark 11:22-23 and James 1:22; 2:26)
I just don’t know how the Holy Spirit can make it much simpler than that!
As we do these things then we can do what Galatians 5:1 says and stand fast in the exemption where with Christ has made us exempt!
Gas prices? Food shortages? No way! The law of the Spirit of life in Philippians 4:19 has made us exempt from those!
Drought? Lack of rain? Not on OUR land! The law of the Spirit of life in Deuteronomy 28:12 has made us exempt from that!
Mass shootings? School shootings? Not my family! The law of the Spirit of life in Psalm 91 and John 17:15 has made us exempt from those things!
I am telling you that, in these days and times, we MUST learn to live in the precious exemption that our God has provided for us and shout Hebrews 13:5-6 from the housetops!
“. . . for He [God] Himself has said, I will not in any way fail you nor give you up nor leave you without support. [I will] not, [I will] not, [I will] not in any degree leave you helpless nor forsake nor let [you] down (relax My hold on you)! [Assuredly not!] So we take comfort and are encouraged and confidently and boldly say, The Lord is my Helper; I will not be seized with alarm [I will not fear or dread or be terrified]. What can man do to me?” – Hebrews 13:5-6 AMPC
Go back and read that out loud. Now read it again. One more time. Keep it before your eyes and in your heart and in your mouth!
