For as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse; for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who does not continue in all things which are written in the book of the law, to do them.”
There are people who are still considered good and that their works can take them to heaven. Galatians 3:10 gives a sharp blow to those who think so when it says many as are of the works of the law are under the curse. Failing Law at one point is equivalent to rape it completely. A simple “white lie” means to be guilty for breaking the Ten Commandments. But it is even worse because according to Deuteronomy 27:26: Cursed is the one who does not confirm all the words of this law by observing them.
What both Deuteronomy 27:26 and Galatians 3:10 tell us is a voice of warning to all human beings. If we were not yet convinced that the works of the law does not save us; we doubted whether it was true that the Law gives knowledge of sin, reading these two scriptures should make us tremble with fear. Both agree that that depend on the works of the law are under a curse.
God’s Law is not bad, bad is breaking it. Unfortunately for us, it is impossible to fully comply with the requirement of the Law. In this sense, who depends on it for justification will lose salvation. And if salvation is a blessing, otherwise it is a curse. And the opposite of salvation is damnation. The mandate of remaining in all things written in the book of the Law is the only thing that saves us from the curse. But we are not able to stay in the whole Law, so, in this way, the curse is guaranteed.
Must clarify an important point, obeying the law of God is not harmful nor leads to curse. The problem is our inability to obey one hundred percent, which makes us all guilty of raping it when we break a single point. And when we become lawbreakers, then we are guilty, which ensures the punishment. The violation of the Law of God is called sin and condemnation for sin is death.
Only a man has lived on earth that never broke the Law of God, Jesus Christ. His 33 years on the surface of our planet He lived without sin once. And, without guilt, He took the place for us. Galatians 3:13 says: Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us (for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree”. The punishment for our sins was received by Him, to pay the debt corresponding to each one of us.
The American pastor Paul David Tripp (1950) said. “You must commit to obey God, not as payment for your sin, but as a celebration of the payment already made.” This payment was done by Jesus dying on the cross for you, for me and for the rest of humanity. His death was to replace ours because of the sins of all. He became a curse for us and gave us redemption.
Relying on the deeds of the Law is curse, but Jesus fulfilled the law completely and took upon Himself your sins, and your curse. Now that you know, do not be saved by Lhe law, all you can do is repent of your sins, give your heart to Jesus Christ and accept His gift of salvation and eternal life. God bless you.
