by Apostle Peter Michael Martinez

The following comment was posted on a video entitled Law vs. Grace Resolved!

Current (False) Doctrinal Argument which the majority of “Christians” hold to:

Sir, this is the new covenant the law has been fulfilled in Jesus.

He kept the law perfect and was accepted by the Father as the offering for our sin. He is our Sabbath which is our rest, he is our rest. Stop! Stop! Stop!

God has not put the burden of the letter of the on us it was to grievous to bear and remember if you break one of the commandment you have broken them all which will condemn us. Thank God we have Jesus as our covering for sin, He is our righteousness.

We don’t need to esteem one day over another even thou surely the Sabbath is on Saturday. It is for freedom that Christ died. Think on these verses>

Galatians 5 Stand fast therefore in the liberty with which Christ has made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage. Behold, I Paul say to you, that if you be circumcised, Christ shall profit you nothing, For I testify again to every man that is circumcised, that he is a debtor to do the whole law. Christ is become of no effect to you, whoever of you are justified by the law; you are fallen from grace.

For we through the Spirit wait for the hope of righteousness by faith. For in Jesus Christ neither circumcision avails anything, nor uncircumcision; but faith works by love. The tithe, the feast, etc.; isn’t a burden of the law that the church under the new covenant is to weary ourselves over.

Our justification is in Christ we are to keep ourselves from idols, from blood, from the meat strangled animals and from sexual immorality.

We are to walk in the spirit and not in the flesh. The Holy Spirit is the oil in the parable of the 10 virgins. And stop setting dates because after the date passes you will be mocked and tuned out.

I do appreciate many of you admonishments and the urgency of the moment. To everyone who read this far the question is do you know Jesus through his scripture, prayer and holiness?

Peter Michael Martinez gently responds with the TRUTH:

Dear Friend,

You have raised several excellent points in your comment I would like to take a few moments to address so that you do not think that your opinion and thoughts were either ignored or undervalued. Quite the contrary, I take such things quite seriously.

Let’s begin with your first point.

“The LAW has been fulfilled in the new covenant.” You state in this statement a concept that the modern church introduced that the LAW was something that “passed away” as if it no longer had value or meaning.

The KING says otherwise . . .

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.”

The KING has settled the matter . . . May we all bow before HIM.

You started your statement with, “sir this is the new covenant the law has been fulfilled in Jesus”  . . . so let’s examine your first sentence in light of scripture as you and I both would agree that scripture is supreme as the WORD of the LORD.

Hebrews 8:10 “For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, saith YHWH; I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them a God, and they shall be to me a people”

Hebrews 10:16This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith YHWH, I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them”

So . . . where again is the LAW of YHWH GOD in the New Covenant? This is the PROMISE of the Father. By the HOLY SPIRIT, HIS LAW written in our hearts and minds.

Did you think that it was just a coincidence that the day that the Holy Spirit descended upon the CHURCH was the EXACT SAME DAY that the LAW was given to Israel?

Did you think that it was just a coincidence that on the day the Law was given to Israel, 3,000 died, but on the Day of Pentecost, 3,000 were saved?

He fulfilled each Feast Day in the Spring to the day and hour . . . the fall feasts however are yet to be fulfilled. So . . . we have to HOLD IT!

The KING has settled the matter . . . May we all bow before HIM.

According to the scripture, the LAW of YHWH God is now written in the hearts and minds of those HE has marked as HIS OWN.

As for your point concerning HIM being our Sabbath, you are partially correct. Indeed, we REST in Him.

However, you have missed a vital part.

The Sabbath is HOLY.

The Sabbath day was HALLOWED, as Father’s name [YHWH] is HALLOWED. Once made HOLY . . . can you now make it UNHOLY? If it is a SIN to commit adultery, how is it NOT a sin to disgrace the Sabbath? The Sabbath is a weekly celebration of the KINGDOM where our KING causes REST upon EARTH for 1,000 years. Who wouldn’t want to celebrate that?

What does HE say about the Sabbath?

Exodus 31:13 “Speak thou also unto the children of Israel, saying, Verily my sabbaths ye shall keep: for it is a sign between me and you throughout your generations; that ye may know that I am the Lord that doth sanctify you.”

Ezekiel 20:12 “Moreover also I gave them my sabbaths, to be a sign between me and them, that they might know that I am the Lord that sanctify them.”

Ezekiel 20:20 “and hallow my sabbaths; and they shall be a sign between me and you, that ye may know that I am the Lord your God.”

[Remember, These are the Holy Scriptures that Paul admonished Timothy to “study to shew thyself approved unto YHWH God.” added for this article]

As any reader can easily see, the Sabbath is a SIGN between YHWH God who sent HIS ONLY begotten SON and His Elect. His people are marked by HIM and when does it end?

Never. If you don’t like the Sabbath, you’ll not like Heaven much.

Now then you make the point that the “letter kills but the Spirit gives life” which one can only assume is because you erroneously believe that what I have inferred was that in order to have SALVATION you must keep the law. That is rubbish.

The LAW has nothing to do with salvation as Paul made most clear to the saints in the first century who could receive it.

If we are conformed into HIS [Jesus’] image, then that LAW ABIDING SON should be emerging from within us, not TO GET SAVED . . . but instead . . . BECAUSE YOU ARE SAVED and the LAW OF YHWH GOD is written in your heart.

Do not confuse SALVATION given as a FREE GIFT and that for which the saints are REWARDED. You are not REWARDED for accepting a free gift. That is ridiculous on its face. Instead, we are REWARDED based upon conduct AFTER receiving the gift of SALVATION.

A notion that is made quite clear throughout the New Testament.

Now here is something for you to PONDER . . .

What PAUL was correcting in Galatia was the NOTION that YOU HAD TO KEEP THE LAW TO GET SAVED . . . a notion that is preposterous on it’s face but some had begun to make people think that in order to be worthy of salvation you had to be a LAW keeper in the flesh.

Of course PAUL went to war against this, not because the LAW was to blame or because the LAW was evil but because . . . and watch carefully here . . . the LAW did not come into ISRAEL until AFTER Salvation . . . and Paul preached it.

Now, if Paul did not revere the precepts of the LAW, He would NEVER have quoted it . . . but he did . . . repeatedly.

Salvation happens [if you just look at the picture in the scripture it becomes clear] in Egypt. The Passover [Jesus on the cross] happens in Egypt. There is NO LAW present there. Only GRACE, A PROMISE KEPT, and a FREE gift of salvation for all who applied BLOOD to the doorposts of their homes.

After BAPTISM in the Red Sea, they were THEN and only THEN taken to the Mount where the LAW was given to Moses. Notice the pattern.

First Salvation, Deliverance from enemies, Baptism, Led by the Spirit Night And Day, and where does HE take them? To the mountain where he gives them HIS LAW.

Who is at the top of that mountain meeting with Moses? Jesus.



He gave us the precepts and then wrote them on our hearts and minds so that we would all learn HIS WAYS. Not to GET SAVED . . . no . . . that would not work. Instead, he had to SAVE US FIRST . . .

Are you getting this . . HE SAVES US FIRST . . . THEN . .. AFTER HE SAVES US FROM OUR OWN SIN . . . He writes HIS LAWS upon our hearts and minds.

That’s why, even though you are telling me your doctrine, you know in your heart that ADULTERY is still a sin and if you don’t confess and repent of that sin you stand in mortal danger.

You and I both know that.

We don’t argue that sin must be repented of.

[And what is sin? 1 John 3:4 “Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law.”added for this article]

What you probably THOUGHT is that I was inferring that you had to KEEP the LAW to be saved . . . that’s nuts . . . NO . . . we aren’t transformed TO GET SAVED . . . we are transformed . . . Because We Are Saved.

Now in closing, I would like to draw your attention to something you quoted. You have to be very careful to look carefully at what you are reviewing.

“to keep ourselves from idols, from blood, from the meat strangled animals and from sexual immorality”

This you grabbed from the words of our brethren the Apostles of Jerusalem. [All of these principles come from the Torah. added for this article]

In your haste to make your point, you failed to review the entire discourse. It changes everything.

Acts 15:19-21 “Wherefore my sentence is, that we trouble not them, which from among the Gentiles are turned to God: 20 but that we write unto them, that they abstain from pollutions of idols, and from fornication, and from things strangled, and from blood. 21 For Moses of old time hath in every city them that preach him, being read in the synagogues every sabbath day.”

You stopped at verse 20 . . . but is the apostle done speaking? Why don’t we let him finish speaking and NOT interrupt the HOLY APOSTLE OF YHWH GOD mid sentence or mid thought. Let’s let him finish what he is saying.

“For Moses of old time hath in every city them that preach him, being read in the synagogues every sabbath day.”

Ok now we have all the apostle wanted to say.

Why did he say the first sentence, because of or “for” the second.

The REASON why the only thing they told the Gentiles “that they abstain from pollutions of idols, and from fornication, and from things strangled, and from blood” is BECAUSE or FOR .. . THIS REASON . . .


Did you miss that? You didn’t quote it so I assume you must not have either known what he meant or known it was relevant.

Listen again to the Apostle. Moses is READ EVERY SABBATH. Yes, that’s what he said.

So . . . no need to give them a long list of do’s and don’t’s because why? …. if they just sit under normal reading of the “instruction” they will learn all the little details and the Holy Spirit will give them all the insight as to WHY Jesus wrote all those precepts . . . after all . . HE is the HIGH priest . . . shouldn’t you know a little about what HIS duties are in Heaven?

Shouldn’t you know . . . for example . . . what a trespass offering is . . . or what is clean or unclean according to HEAVEN?

Now that one is SAVED this information is NOT about OBTAINING salvation, this information is about LIVING IN THE KINGDOM.

I hope that you can now see that you may have made some assumptions that were not correct so that’s why I am taking the time to clarify.

YOU CANNOT BE SAVED BY KEEPING THE LAW. Unless you are already saved, the Law is your doom.

May the HOLY SPIRIT help you go back and ask new questions about what you believe as compared to the Gospel of the Kingdom that was preached to the Jew first, and they to the Greek.
