Ephesians 2:14-16 “For he himself is our peace, who has made the two one and and has destroyed the barrier, the dividing wall of hostility, by abolishing in his flesh the law with its commandments and regulations. His purpose was to create in himself one new man out of the two, thus making peace, and in this one body to reconcile both of them to God through the cross, by which he put to death the hostility.”
The Scene: The cross of Christ represented–with the shadow of the cross symbolic of the tablets of the law as brought down from the mountain, by Moses.
“My people have come out from the shadow of darkness of this world and the law into the light of the world, God’s only Son, Jesus.” (Quickened to the author by the Holy Spirit)
Colossians 2:14 “Having canceled the written code, with its regulations, that was against us and that stood opposed to us; he took it away, nailing it to the cross.”
However, there are those who have chosen to continue living under the law & walking in its darkness–the shadow of the cross, rather than its reality. Hebrews 7:18-19 “The former regulation is set aside because it was weak and useless (for the law made nothing perfect), and a better hope is introduced, by which we draw near to God.”
Now we know Jesus is returning for His bride–He is the Light of the world; there will be no more shadow of the law, no more darkness. Hebrews 10:1 “The law is only a shadow of the good things that are coming–not the realities themselves. For this reason it can never, by the same sacrifices repeated endlessly year after year, make perfect those who draw near to worship.”
