The Decrees in the Age of the Law Are the Testament to God’s Guiding All Mankind

“You have seen all these decrees and principles in the Age of Law, haven’t you? The range of these decrees is wide, right? First, the Ten Commandments, then the decrees concerning how to build the altar and so on, then the sayings about keeping the Sabbath and the three feasts, and then the decrees concerning offering sacrifices. How many kinds of offerings can you find there are? There is the burnt offering, the meal offering, the peace offering, the sin offering, and so on. Next are the decrees regarding priests offering sacrifices, which include offering the burnt offering, the meal offering, and all the other kinds of offerings. The eighth item is the decrees concerning priests eating sacrifices. What follows are the decrees men should keep in their life. Here, there are regulations for many aspects of man’s life, such as, the decrees concerning what men can eat and what men cannot, the decrees concerning the cleansing of women after childbirth, and the decrees concerning the healing of the leper. In these decrees, God even spoke about such things as sickness and the rules concerning slaying oxen and sheep. Oxen and sheep were created by God, and you should slay them as God told you. God’s words are definitely reasonable, and it will surely not be wrong to act according to God’s regulations, which will surely be beneficial to man. Moreover, God gave sayings about feasts and rules that should be kept, such as the Sabbath, the Passover, and so on. Let’s look at the last item—Other Decrees: the lighting of the lamps, the year of jubilee, the redeeming of the fields, the taking of a vow, the offering of a tenth, and so on. The aspects of these decrees covered a wide range, didn’t they? First, they covered the matter of offering sacrifices, then stealing, compensation, keeping Sabbath, and all the other details in life. “
