The Bible says the letter kills, the law kills,
but the Spirit gives life.
And then we have, on the Day of Pentecost
again, the feast of the giving of the law.
Today, you speak to an average Jew who knows
his Bible, he will tell you that the law was
given on which feast.
You ask him, he will say not Passover, not
Pentecost–not Tabernacles, but Pentecost,
They call it Shavuot, amen.
They celebrate the giving of the law.
We celebrate Acts 2, on the Day of Pentecost.
“When the Day of Pentecost was fully come,
God gave,” what?
He came like a rushing, mighty wind, like
He can’t wait to fill the believers, amen?
And He filled them all up.
So we celebrate Pentecost as the day of the
giving of the Holy Spirit.
The promise of Abraham was fulfilled, amen.
And what happened?
Three thousand people were saved at the preaching
of Peter on the Day of Pentecost.
That demonstrates the under the law, there’s
Under grace, you live, amen.
Now, nothing wrong with the law.
The morality of the law is something that
we still have to keep, right?
Now, let me say it like this.
Not that we have to keep, it is kept in us
as we know how to flow with it.
The thing is the devil wants you to be law-conscious
and try to keep the law.
That is the very thing that a lot of people
are trying to do.
And by trying to do that, you fall under Romans
The more you try to–Paul said, “The more
I try to keep the tenth one–” “Thou shall
not desire or covet,” all right, “what belongs
“The more I try to do that, I find in me all
manner of desires.”
It stirs up.
Or you can say, “Thou shall not lust,” all
The more I try not to lust, the more I lust.
So the devil wants to bring the law to your
consciousness so that the more you try to
keep it, you activate your human strength,
you fall, right?
And you don’t even know how you fall.
You fall right away and you don’t even know
how you fell.
It all starts with you trying to be good,
trying to do what’s good.
Are you listening?
A group of boys passed by, all right?
They passed by a greenhouse.
You know what’s a greenhouse?
A lot of glass, right?
And there’s nothing.
They don’t feel anything.
Right at the end of the street, there’s another
greenhouse and this one, “Don’t throw rocks.
No one is around.
One boy looks at another boy.
Another boy looks at another.
What do you think they are feeling?
They don’t feel anything with the first greenhouse.
The greenhouse is not the problem, nor are
the signs in the next one the problem.
Nothing wrong with the signs.
But something wrong with the flesh.
The flesh needs a law to activate it.
That’s why the Bible says, “The strength of
sin is the law.”
So, nothing wrong with the law.
The law is holy, righteous, and blameless,
amen, but it cannot make you righteous.
It cannot make you holy.
So, how do you become holy then?
Not by being conscious of the law, by being
conscious of Jesus.
We are to walk in him, amen, and you don’t
have to worry about the law.
In fact, the law is limited.
The law says, “Thou shall not commit adultery.”
There are people who don’t commit adultery,
listen, because they don’t have the money,
okay, for example, okay?
They can do it in their mind but they cannot
do it physically because–okay.
In some cases, not all.
Some don’t commit adultery against their wife,
but they don’t love their wife.
Is that what God wants?
No, but when you’re occupied with Christ,
he gives you that love for your spouse, amen.
Walking in grace makes you in love with everyone,
even those who speak against you, those who
write against you, whatever.
You know, I tell you, it fills your heart
with love for them.
You feel compassion for them.
It’s hard to carry bitterness for a long time.
You feel for them.
You feel–people ask me, “Pastor Prince–”
You know, people write things about me, say
things about– “Pastor, I hope you’re okay.”
Don’t worry about me.
Like Jesus told the people who were saying
to the Lord, right?
He was carrying the cross.
What did He say?
“Don’t cry for Me, Argentina.”
No, He didn’t say that.
He said, “Don’t weep for Me, daughters of
Jerusalem, but weep for yourselves and your
Even, you know, none of us if we are suffering
can think of others.
We think about ourselves.
But He has the time to think about others.
How unselfish, how beautiful His moral.
His moral beauty and excellence comes out
when He’s suffering, amen.
Even at the cross, He gave comfort to the
thief who said, “Lord, remember me.”
“Today, you shall be with Me in paradise.”
He thought of His mother and the grief of
a mother’s heart.”
He says to John, “Behold your mother.
Take care of My mother.”
All the while, He’s thinking of us.
“Father, forgive them, for they know not what
Ah, to be like Jesus.
I look at myself, okay, you look at yourself
hopefully, and you compare yourself with our
Lord Jesus, and you see how far short we fall,
We are irritable every day.
We don’t know why we are irritable.
We are just irritable, amen?
So the devil wants you to try your best to
not be irritable.
Try to suppress it.
Oh, that is a surefire way of becoming more
So how do you get out of it?
By being focused on Jesus, not the law, okay?
So here again, we are for the law for the
reason God gave the law, and God never gave
the law to justify man by.
So are you clear on this?
Let’s move on, okay?
When God gave the law, remember when God brought
them out of Egypt, all right, listen, there
was no Ten Commandments.
It was not yet given.
Oh, for a moment, I thought I’m preaching
in another church.
Okay, all right, let’s try this again, okay?
Let’s try this again.
New Creation Church, am I right?
Am I in the right church?
Okay, when God brought them out of Egypt,
do they– are they cognizant of the Ten Commandments?
No, it was not yet given.
Mount Sinai is in front.
Okay, in case you don’t know your chronological
order, deliverance from Egypt happened first.
They came out by what?
The blood of the lamb, amen?
Were they good people?
They got out because they were good?
No, because he is good, amen.
It is his goodness.
Then he brought them through the Red Sea,
I mean, there–behind are the marauding forces
of the Egyptian army.
In front is the deep, deep, deep, deep Red
And they complained.
Complaining is sin.
But God didn’t seem to respond to their sin.
God was responding under the covenant, Abrahamic
covenant of grace that they were under then,
and God opened up the sea.
Hmm, what a covenant.
It’s as if God is not even regarding their
God brought them through the Red Sea because
of His faithfulness, not because of theirs.
Then on the other side, they complained again
because after three days there was no water,
and they complained at the bitter waters of
God healed the waters in spite of their complaining,
and God says, “I am the Lord who heals you,”
