The Law: Sabbath | Tithe | First Fruits | Use of Jewelries | etc

Galatians 5:18, “But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the Law.”
Giving money is of God. But making it A LAW is of the devil. This is what we must understand... When you create or accept a religious law and insist that you must adhere to it very strictly, you work against THE SPIRIT OF THE FATHER. Strict adherence to religious laws makes it difficult for you to, "Walk in the Spirit". Such laws seek to put you in a box BUT no one can put the Spirit in a box. God DOES NOT do things a particular way all the time. This is the beauty of "spiritual liberty". Such laws enslave people and force them to look "outward" for direction instead of looking "inwards" - inwards to the indwelling SPIRIT FRAGMENT OF THE FATHER for divine leading.
To eternally secure your salvation and to experience great spiritual growth, you MUST NOT bring yourself under such laws: laws that say you must not use jewelries; you must Tithe; you must observe a Sabbath day; you must be circumcised; you must give your entire January salary to your Church (a corrupted version of First Fruits), etc, etc. Now for example, if you wish to give 10% of your income, fine. But allow for flexibility as to who, where and how you give it. LET THE SPIRIT LEAD. Also, NEVER MAKE IT A LAW!
Now how can you tell you are under the bondage of a law? Here are some tips:
- You place yourself very strictly and rigidly under a religious rule or regulation.
- You believe that something bad will happen to you if you do not follow it strictly.
- You live in FEAR that things will go wrong with you if you allow for flexibility.
The Law was a faulty and flawed document: Hebrews 7:18-19, “So the former commandment 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.”
The Law puts you in a slave-matrix of curses: Galatians 3:10-11, “All who rely on works of the Law are under a curse. For it is written: “Cursed is everyone who does not continue to do everything written in the Book of the Law.” And it is clear that no one is justified before God by the Law, because, “The righteous will live by faith.””
Please, note that a part of the real “motive of the Law” was for it to be impossible for you to do everything written therein. The Law tells you that you cannot do one and leave the others; that you must do all. (Galatians 5:3, “Again I testify to every man who gets himself circumcised that he is obligated to obey the whole Law.”) At the same time, it was crafted in such a way that made it literally impossible to even do all. It guaranteed your bondage and curses (all kinds of unnecessary problems: mental, emotional, psychological, spiritual, physical, etc).
Strictly following a Law makes you to fall from grace and brings curses (all kinds of unnecessary problems) into your life: Galatians 5:4, “You who are trying to be justified by the Law have been severed from Christ; you have fallen away from grace.”
You are to walk in the Spirit; be led by the Father’s indwelling Spirit NOT by some cleverly crafted Law: Galatians 5:5-6, “But by faith we eagerly await through the Spirit the hope of righteousness. For in Christ Jesus, neither circumcision nor uncircumcision has any value. All that matters is faith, expressed through love.” Please note, “Neither circumcision nor uncircumcision has any value” translates to mean DO NOT bring yourself under any religious law. All you need is faith and love. Simple.
Galatians 5:18, “But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the Law.”
Galatians 5:1, “It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not be encumbered once more by a yoke of slavery.”
Galatians 5:22-23, “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. Against such things there is no Law.” 

No law: law of tithes, law of Sabbath, law of fashion, etc can stand against the fruit of the Spirit. Please, do you understand this?
