There are many who believe that the Law of God has
been abolished. For those who believe this,
here are a few questions to consider.
How long did God say His law
Answer: Forever (Ex. 12:14-17, Ex.
12:24, Ex. 27:21, Ex. 28:43, Ex. 29:28, Ex. 30:21,
Ex. 31:16-17, Lev. 10:15, Lev. 16:29-31, Lev. 23:21,
Lev. 23:31, Lev. 24:8, Deut. 5:29, Deut. 11:1, 2
Chron. 2:4, and many, many more).
Why will we be keeping the feast
of Tabernacles after Jesus returns if this law was
Why will God's people be keeping
the Sabbath after the Messiah returns if the Sabbath law
Why will God kill those who eat

If pig was unhealthy before the
Messiah died on the cross, how did the Messiah's death
make a pig all of a sudden healthy?
Why did the Apostle Paul
practice God's feasts and Sabbath's after the Messiah
ascended if these feasts were abolished?
(Acts 16:13, Acts 17:1-2,
Acts 18:21, Acts 20:16) - Did Paul not realize at
this time that God's Law had been abolished?
Why did the Apostle Paul
practice the sacrificial system after the Messiah
ascended if the law was abolished?
Why did the Apostles require the
Gentiles to practice dietary laws such as not eating
strangled meat and blood?
Why was the Messiah following
God's law and teaching others to follow it if He was
going to get rid of the law after His resurrection?
(Matt. 5:17-19, Matt. 5:21,
Matt. 5:27, Matt. 8:4, Matt. 12:11-12, Matt. 23:23,
Mark 1:41-44, Mark 7:7-9, Mark 7:10-13, Mark
10:17-19, Luke 5:14, Luke 4:4, Luke 4:8, Luke 4:12,
Luke 10:25-26, Luke 11:28, Luke 17:14, John 7:19-22,
John 14:15, John 14:21)
Many say we are to follow the 10
Commandments, but not the other
commandments. If this is true, then why did the
Messiah say that "all the law and the prophets" hang on
two great commandments, and then quote two commandments
that are not part of the ten?
If the feasts of the LORD are a
"shadow of good things to come" (Heb. 10:1), then why
would the church not want to follow them? After
all, four of them were fulfilled at the Messiah's first
coming, but three of them have yet to be fulfilled?
Besides, the feast of Pentecost shadowed the start of
the church (Acts 2:1-8).
The Messiah has fulfilled
all the Springs feasts (Passover, Unleavened Bread,
Firstfruits and Pentecost), these foreshadowed His
death, burial, resurrection, and the outpouring of
The Messiah has not
fulfilled the Fall feasts (Feast of Trumpets, Day of
Atonement, Feast of Tabernacles), these foreshadow
the resurrection of the dead, judgment day, and the
reign of the Messiah.
When the Messiah said, "Man
shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that
proceedeth out of the mouth of God" (Matt. 4:4), wasn't
the only "word .. of .. God" available to Him from the
If God is a God who "change[s]
not" and is the "same yesterday, and to day, and for
ever," then why does He change so much? Why is He
different today when compared to Moses' day?
These are some fair questions that ought to be answered.
The Messiah was our "example ... that [we] should follow His
steps" (1 Pet. 2:21). If He followed God's law,
shouldn't we? If the Messiah told us to practice even
His "least commandments" (Matt. 5:19), shouldn't we practice
them all? I mean, which law did God make a mistake on?
Aren't they all good for us and aren't we better off
practicing them? It seems a bit arrogant for us, just
because we might not understand one of His laws, to assume
He is wrong and not follow it. We should follow it
even if we don't understand it and just maybe we will
eventually learn and understand that law. After all,
"a good understanding have all they that do his
commandments" (Psalm 111:10). Maybe if we start
"do[ing] His commandments" we will start to understand the
benefit of practicing His commandments. If the Messiah
is going to rule as King during the Millenium, then which
law will He rule with, the U.S. Code, the Law of Canada, or
the Law of God? If your answer is "the Law of God"
then shouldn't we get prepared for the rule of the Messiah
by practicing His law now?
