The Eternal Law of Love
The teaching that the transgression of Adam had an eternal (infinite) repercussion is said to be supported by the theory that an eternal law was broken because the legislator of the law was Yahweh himself.
Now consider, for a law to be broken the will and intentions of the legislator had to be violated. The breaking of the law that we refer to, according to modern theology, was supposed to set Yahweh’s purpose and will aside.
To say that man’s transgression violated and set aside Yahweh’s infinite will, eternally preventing his intention from being carried out, is to exalt the creature to a position above the Creator and suggests an eternal lack in the Godhood. For if Yahweh wished for that which he could not have and desired that which, in his infinite wisdom, he knew he could not attain, he is now in an eternal state of want and lack.
The will, or legislation, of Yahweh is eternal, and being eternal cannot be frustrated or broken. We do not break the law— the law stands and we are broken by it because the law stands to represent the principle— the essence of Yahweh.
There is a myth concerning Adam’s transgression—Adam did not die because Yahweh was angry and killed him. Please read this scripture in Genesis 3:3 carefully, “But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, Yahweh hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.”
There was a definite threat coming from the fruit of the tree, but no threat from Yahweh. It is a fact—Adam lost touch with Life (reality) when he rejected and opposed the word of Life or you could say the law of Life. Yahweh’s Word, purpose, and will stood firm and is still standing sure and steadfast. The creature is constantly affected by his own reaction to the Word, but the Word remains steadfast.
When we test the law of Yahweh, we experience the reality of its strength and truth—it stands, we fall. But the River of Life still flows with the love and life of the Father to restore.
Yasha said he was the word, light, truth, and the way. Yahweh is Spirit; therefore he is unseen, but the Word is the law which reveals Yahweh’s essence. Christ is more than these things—he is the will of the Father, the resurrection and the life. Without which all men remain in darkness and death.
Yasha said, “You shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free.” The light will make you free, the resurrection will make you free, or the law will make you free. We are clearly taught in the Scripture that Yasha was the embodiment of all these things. Yahweh’s eternal purpose will be carried out. Love never fails!
“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Yasha Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ: According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love: Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Yasha Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will, To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he has made us accepted in the beloved. In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace; Wherein he has abounded toward us in all wisdom and prudence; Having made known unto us the mystery of his will, according to his good pleasure which he hath purposed in himself: That in the dispensation of the fullness of times he might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth; even in him: In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of him who works all things after the counsel of his own will,” Ephesians 1:3-11. This text has made it very clear that Yahweh’s original plan is still on track and moving on to its full consummation.
Perhaps this would be the perfect place to consider what the results of Adam’s transgress was and why it affected him so severely. The forbidden tree was the tree of knowledge of good and evil, it revealed more truth than Adam could handle at that time. It revealed enough truth to Adam to bring him under condemnation. Adam was a temple for the Almighty to dwell in, but he judged himself down in the face of truth because he could not, within himself, measure up to Yahweh’s perfect Holiness.
Paul, in Romans 7:7-23, does much better explaining this situation than I can, though he uses himself as the sinning creature. I have copied this scripture from the Living Bible. I love the ability Yahweh gave this person to give us words for this passage that is easy to be understood. It is beautiful!
“Well then, am I suggesting that these laws of Yahweh are evil? Of course not! No, the law is not sinful, but it was the law that showed me my sin. I would never have known the sin in my heart—the evil desires that are hidden there—if the law had not said, You must not have evil desires in your heart.
“But sin used this law against evil desires by reminding me that such desires are wrong, and arousing (revealing) all kinds of forbidden desires within me! Only if there were no laws to break would there be no sinning. That is why I felt fine so long as I did not understand what the law really demanded. But when I learned the truth, I realized that I had broken the law and was a sinner, doomed to die. So as far as I was concerned, the good law which was supposed to show me the way of life resulted instead in my being given the death penalty.
“Sin fooled me by taking the good laws of Yahweh and using them to make me guilty of death. But still, you see, the law itself was wholly right and good. But how can that be? Didn’t the law cause my doom? How then can it be good? No, it was sin, devilish stuff that it is, that used what was good to bring about my condemnation. So you can see how cunning and deadly and damnable it is. For it uses Yahweh’s good laws for its own evil purposes. The law is good, then, and the trouble is not there but with me because I am sold into slavery with Sin as my owner. I don’t understand myself at all, for I really want to do what is right, but I can’t. I do what I don’t want to—what I hate. I know perfectly well that what I am doing is wrong, and my bad conscience proves that I agree with these laws I am breaking. But I can’t help myself because I’m no longer doing it. It is sin inside me that is stronger than I am that makes me do these evil things. I know I am rotten through and through so far as my old sinful nature is concerned. No matter which way I turn I can’t make myself do right. I want to but I can’t. When I want to do good, I don’t; and when I try not to do wrong, I do it anyway.
“Now if I am doing what I don’t want to, it is plain where the trouble is: sin still has me in its evil grasp. It seems to be a fact of life that when I want to do what is right, I inevitably do what is wrong. I love to do Yahweh’s will so far as my new nature is concerned; but there is something else deep within me, in my lower nature, that is at war with my mind and wins the fight and makes me a slave to the sin that is still within me. In my mind I want to be Yahweh’s willing servant, but instead I find myself still enslaved to sin. So you see how it is: my new life tells me to do right, but the old nature that is still inside me loves to sin. Oh, what a terrible predicament I’m in! Who will free me from my slavery to this deadly lower nature? Thank Yahweh! It has been done by Yasha Christ our Lord. He has set me free.”
So with these words, we now conclude that the Holy Spirit, sent down from heaven, has the ability to overpower the evil nature within us and give us his very nature. When we consider that this actually means that we can now, by believing in our Redeemer, shake off the binding cords of sin that set us at odds with our Creator (in our minds we are his enemies). We can now reach out and grasp the truth that revives us from the death of sin and disgrace by rejecting the lie and believing the truth.
There is such a great light in Colossians 1:19-23 that is difficult to grasp in its fullness from the King James Version, but it is made very clear in The Living Bible. I invite you to read it from that version.
“Christ himself is the Creator who made everything in heaven and earth, the things we can see and the things we can’t; the spirit world with its kings and kingdoms, its rulers and authorities; all were made by Christ for his own use and glory. He was before all else began and it is his power that holds everything together. He is the Head of the body made up of his people—that is, his Church—which he began; and he is the Leader of all those who arise from the dead, so that he is first in everything; for Yahweh wanted all of himself to be in his Son. It was through what his Son did that Yahweh cleared a path for everything to come to him—all things in heaven and on earth—for Christ’s death on the cross has made peace with Yahweh for all by his blood. This includes you who were once so far away from Yahweh. You were his enemies and hated him and were separated from him by your evil thoughts and actions, yet now he has brought you back as his friends. He has done this through the death on the cross of his own human body, and now as a result Christ has brought you into the very presence of Yahweh, and you are standing there before him with nothing left against you—nothing left that he could even chide you for; the only condition is that you fully believe the Truth, standing in it steadfast and firm, strong in the Lord, convinced of the Good News that Yasha died for you, and never shifting from trusting him to save you.
“This is the wonderful news that came to each of you and is now spreading all over the world. And I, Paul, have the joy of telling it to others.”
People tend to forget that the man, the tree, and the serpent were all placed in the garden by the eternal wisdom of Yahweh. Yahweh’s works are carefully laid out and monitored by him. This mystery is revealed in Romans 8:19-25: “For the earnest expectation of the creature waits for the manifestation of the sons of Yahweh. For the creature (creation) was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who has subjected the same in hope, Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of Yahweh. For we know that the whole creation groans and travails in pain together until now. And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body. For we are saved by hope: but hope that is seen is not hope: for what a man sees, why does he yet hope for? But if we hope for that we see not, then do we with patience wait for it.”
Ephesians 1:10:“We wait with patience because we know, That in the dispensation of the fullness of times he might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth; even in him.”
