God's Law is eternal! God's law is found in three categories: 1)From Adam to Moses, 2)From Moses to Christ, and 3) From Christ to modern day. God's Law is co-herent in two major commandments, Loving God and Loving Man. In the secnd section of the tree categories, there are ten commands listed. In the first section, there is not a list of the ten commands; however, all ten fall under the two major commands, Loving God and Loving Man. People always violated God's comands. The violation of God's commands is sin. Sin reigned from Adam to Moses because the two major commands were violated. Within the two commands, sin was manifested through the violation of the ten listed with God's covenant with Moses, even though those ten were not specifically listed. The second category became a reality because of God's Law being broken in the first category. God added a penalty to the original commands, thus listed in the decalogue. Penalty is what was added. The ten commandment covenant took the original and included penalty. That was evident from Moses to Christ. Christ paid the penalty, thus,ending the Law of Moses, which possessed God's Law plus a penalty. From Christ onward to today, those who become covenanted people of God are released from the penalty.Throughout all categories, God supplied hope beyond Law for people under those eras of time. The ultimate lesson is that God provides Hope beyond Law. Law and Grace are two different concepts. Each has a role and importance in the understanding of people. Law of God should be held to the highest degree; however, there is still Hope beyond that Law.
