I am very glad that you brought up this subject to discuss.I stand with Matthew 5:17 "Do not think that I came to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I did not come to abolish but to fulfill."
Hey TC, you may wish to hear a few things about that article:
The grace part in particular. The word for grace is literally unmerited favor (looking the 1828 Webster's Dictionary (the 1st American Dictionary where all definitions are given from Scripture), or just favor, or goodwill. Jesus was full of grace, He was full of favor, full of goodwill. And the favor and the goodwill is toward US.
Otherwise if you reject this, then how is God full of love? For the love is an attitude or action TOWARD someone. Jesus was full of love of course, for us, toward us, specifically COVENANT love, or known in the OC and with Abraham as "hesed" in the Hebrew, or in the NC as "agappe". This sort of love is often translated as tender kindness, tender loving kindness, but it's so much more; it is the highest form of love and there is no way out once entered into except to die (and that's just among men). It is what happened when David and Jonathan entered into covenant, or hesed, with one another, and their souls were knit together.
At any rate, God is full of love, which is to say, that He is full of love TOWARD us, and in the same way Jesus is full of grace (favor/goodwill) TOWARD us.
If we were to write that someone were full of anger, that is to say that they are full of anger toward someone, etc.
So grace, translated from the original language means favor, or goodwill, and God means just what He says. Fighting against grace is fight against God's will and gainsay the Holy Spirit.
Also, Jesus will be back for us (not setting His foot on the Earth at that time) who are Believers BEFORE the day of God's wrath. 1 Thessalonians 5:9 says we who believe have not been appointed for wrath.
Romans 5:9 also says we who believe are saved from wrath.
Revelation 6 describes the day of God's wrath (THE tribulation), but before this the Wedding Supper of the Lamb has already begun. How can the Believers, who will all be present for that in Heaven, be down here on the Earth for the day of God's wrath when Jesus said we'd be at His Wedding Supper?
I didn't read the rest of that article, but these 2 points are very important and cancel out what that guy was trying to say.
Yes, with Mike the Fifth (or Mike V), that statement Alex doesn't compute with the Bible. Jesus was the fulfillment of what God said in Genesis and to fulfill the everlasting covenant made with Abraham and bring us all back to receiving the Blessing of the Lord/The Blessing of Abraham purely by grace (favor) as opposed to having to earn it through obedience. Jesus shows us in His resurrection all that is possible through the Blessing, and that we can have it all now since He has made us every bit as righteous as Himself and the Father now.
One way of looking at this discussion is thinking about Jesus as our Rabbi. To explain (basic summary)...hello...i would like your feedback on this question!!!
