Accuser

Jesus said, "Do not think that I will accuse you to the Father: there is one that accuseth you, even Moses, in whom ye trust" (John 5:45). Moses (law) is the accuser according to Jesus Christ.

Moses gave the LAW of God to Israel. Sometimes, in the New Testament, when reference is made to Moses, the man (Moses) is not indicated but rather the reference is to the LAW of Moses. The reason that Moses (law) is the accuser is that no one can keep the law, and consequently, everyone must be accused by the law.

"For the LAW was given by Moses but grace and TRUTH came by Jesus Christ" (John 1:17).

People often pick out certain parts of the law -- the parts they like -- and put other people under condemnation if they do not follow them. How would you like it if we brought up the law that says that in case your brother dies you must marry his wife and go in unto her to perform the duty of a husband (Duet. 25:5)? Maybe you do not like the idea of marrying your sister-in-law, and perhaps she might not like it either, but the law is the law!

Well, praise God, we are not under the law!

We are under the grace of God which is through Jesus Christ--not Moses.

Many Christians reject parts of the law while trying to keep other parts. How can anyone know which parts to keep and which parts to reject? Some people claim that they keep all God's laws, but that is hard to believe. Others say that they keep all the important laws of God. but reject the rituals. If this is right then everyone must find out the difference between rituals and laws.

Some Christians just know deep down within themselves what laws to still keep and what rituals to do away with. That is not good enough.

It is not safe to trust how someone else feels about the law.

The fact that there are hundreds of denominations shows that there are that many ways of looking at the law -- and each decides which laws to keep and which rituals to reject, but they do not tell us how to know what is a law and what is a ritual, and they do not teach us how to figure it out ourselves.
