Moment of Truth: Casting Down Lies #10

Estimated Reading Time: 4 minutes

“No one has ever kept the law.”

Not so. Noah was perfect.

These are the generations of Noah: Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations, and Noah walked with God. ~Genesis 6:9 KJV

Job was perfect.

There was a man in the land of Uz, whose name was Job; and that man was perfect and upright, and one that feared God, and eschewed evil. ~Job 1:1 KJV

Zacharias and his wife were also blameless.

[5] There was in the days of Herod, the king of Judaea, a certain priest named Zacharias, of the course of Abia: and his wife was of the daughters of Aaron, and her name was Elisabeth. [6] And they were both righteous before God, walking in all the commandments and ordinances of the Lord blameless. ~Luke 1:5-6 KJV

They kept the law perfectly. The difference is that they could only perfect themselves to the point of the carnality of the law. This is why Christ became the final, perfect lamb for us through His death. Moreover, through His resurrection, we are able to get the Gift of the Holy Spirit, which is God living in us, to finish what the law could not do.

[39] And these all, having obtained a good report through faith, received not the promise: [40] God having provided some better thing for us, that they without us should not be made perfect. ~Hebrews 11:39-40 KJV

“They without us should not be made perfect” means that although they were perfect in the tablet law, the tablet law was incomplete because it could not fix us in our flesh. So their flesh, a priest’s flesh, was not perfect because of their conscience being without the Holy Gift.

Which was a figure for the time then present, in which were offered both gifts and sacrifices, that could not make him that did the service perfect, as pertaining to the conscience; ~Hebrews 9:9 KJV

Since they had no conscience of their sin in the flesh, and only had the law, they were perfect in the law and ordinances.

I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. So then with the mind I myself serve the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin. ~ Romans 7:25 KJV

When Christ says that He fulfilled the law, this means that He completed it because He fixed our flesh by giving us His Spirit.

[1] There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. [2] For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death. [3] For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh: [4] That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. ~Romans 8:1-4 KJV

If we walk in the Spirit, we will not serve the flesh with the law of sin and thus, we will be more perfect than they were in their perfection of the tablet law. We obtain the law and the righteousness of it. The law is completely fulfilled in us. Nevertheless, if those Jewish people were perfect and blameless in the law back then, more exist today.

It is important to note that Job and Noah did not have the tablet law, but they had knowledge of Adam and Eve so they knew that God had laws that specifically touch the two commandments: Eve believed the serpent over God and Cain killed his brother.
