Some people were convinced by the teaching of their man-made doctrines that the Law is abolished after the Crucifixion of Jesus Christ.  So what did the Holy Spirit indwelt Apostles of Jesus Christ believe AFTER Jesus died and resurrected? Did they keep and preach the Ten Commandments as Truth?

Many years after Jesus was resurrected apostles were moved by the Holy Spirit to write these things;

1 John 3:22, “And whatsoever we ask, we receive of him, because we keep his commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in his sight.”

1 John 5:2 also states, ” By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, and keep his commandments.”

1 John 5:3 declares, ” For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.”

Hebrews 8:10 …I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts

And my favorite verse in the Bible which is found in Revelation 14:12 declares, “Here is the patience of the saints; here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.”

By the way, for those skeptics out there that still believe the Law passed away at the cross. Jesus just said in Matthew 5:18 “For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled”. With that said, my question is, is heaven above and the earth beneath still here? And have all prophecies been fulfilled wherein we are in the city of Heaven? No? Then this means His Law is still binding no matter what you may think or have been taught.

As intimated earlier, many still feel the Ordinances abolished at the cross are the same as the Law contained in stone. With that said, is there Scriptural evidence that can put this fallacy to rest that shows the apparent difference between God’s Law contained in stone and Moses’ law contained in ordinances?” (link)
