*** There is a difference between Old Testament law and New Testament grace. "For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ" (John 1:17) ***

Luke 9:55 "But he turned, and rebuked them, and said, Ye know not what manner of spirit ye are of."


Luke 9:54-56 New King James Version (NKJV)

54 And when His disciples James and John saw this, they said, “Lord, do You want us to command fire to come down from heaven and consume them, just as Elijah did?”

Note 1: Life For Today Study Bible Notes:


John has been cast by some as somewhat effeminate because he was the disciple whom Jesus loved and lay on His breast at the Last Supper (John 13:23). However, John’s actions here show he was no mama’s boy. He wanted to rain fire down on the whole town and kill them all.

James and John were wanting to emulate the Old Testament prophet Elijah. He called fire down from heaven and killed 102 men (2 Kings 1:9-12).



55 But He turned and rebuked them, and said, “You do not know what manner of spirit you are of.


Note 2 at Luke 9:55: Jesus was constantly being accused of breaking the Law of Moses (see list of six instances where Jesus was accused of breaking the Sabbath in note 5 at John 5:9). He taught differently than the Law of Moses (Matthew 5:21-48), and here He rebuked His disciples for desiring to do what an Old Testament prophet did with God’s blessing and power. However, Jesus didn’t come to destroy the Law but to fulfill it (Matthew 5:17).

The Law was given to kill and condemn (2 Corinthians 3:7-9), to release the wrath of God (Romans 4:15), and to impose the curse (Deuteronomy 28:15-68 and Galatians 3:10-13). Elijah was operating under this dispensation of the wrath of God when he called down fire from heaven and it consumed 102 men (2 Kings 1:9-12). It was the fire of God that fell, not the fire of the devil (2 Kings 1:12). God was releasing His wrath and punishment on sin through Elijah, as He did on other occasions in the Old Testament (Exodus 12:29-30, 14:19-31, 32:26-28; and Numbers 16:23-35).



However, Jesus came not to destroy people’s lives but to save them (John 3:16 and 10:10). “God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them” (2 Corinthians 5:19). Jesus was just in doing this because He bore our sins (Isaiah 53:4-6) and the accompanying wrath of God (Matthew 27:46 and Hebrews 2:9). Jesus didn’t reject God’s judgment against sin; He bore it (2 Corinthians 5:21). Therefore, He was able to extend the grace and mercy of God to those who would have been doomed under the Law of Moses (Acts 13:38-39).



The Old Testament Law was like a judge passing sentence upon sin. Jesus became our advocate (or lawyer, 1 John 2:2), and even more than that, He became our substitute, bearing “our sins in his own body on the tree” (1 Peter 2:24). He didn’t destroy God’s judgment; He fulfilled it in Himself so that we could go free.



This forever changed God’s dealings with sinful man. In light of what Jesus has done in the New Covenant, we would be rebuked for trying to release God’s wrath upon others as was done in the Old Covenant. Likewise, if Jesus had been on the earth in His physical body reconciling the world unto Himself in the days of Elijah, then Elijah would have been rebuked for his actions in 2 Kings 1:9-15. There is a difference between Old Testament Law and New Testament grace. “For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ” (John 1:17).





56 For the Son of Man did not come to destroy men’s lives but to save them.” And they went to another village.


Note 3 - at Luke 9:56

Jesus didn’t condone judgment on others for their actions as had been done with God’s approval under the Old Covenant (2 Kings 1:9-12). Jesus totally changed God’s dealings with mankind, not by looking past their sins, but by paying the total price for their sins.

Jesus didn’t come to condemn us but to save us (John 3:17). There is absolutely no condemnation from God toward those who have received the salvation Jesus purchased (Romans 8:1).


Andrew Wommack's Living Commentary.



-------------------------------------------------------------


***

This passage explains completely the whole plan and purpose of Christ plus how and why it came about when it was done for all time and Eternity! If you can not understand this friend then perhaps you are over thinking the question and do not understand the premises of the conclusion! - i.e. you are lost and confused by the evil mess that the world is in today!

Jesus was constantly being accused of breaking the law of Moses.

He taught differently than the law of Moses (Mt. 5:21-48), and now He rebukes His disciples for desiring to do what an Old Testament prophet did with God's blessing and power.


However, Jesus didn't come to destroy the law but to fulfill it.



Jesus came not to destroy men's lives but to save them

(John. 3:16-17; 10:10).


"God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them" (2 Cor. 5:19).


Jesus was just in doing this because He bore our sins (Isa. 53:4-6)

and the accompanying wrath of God (Mt. 27:46; Heb. 2:9).


Jesus didn't reject God's judgment against sin; He bore it

(2 Cor. 5:21).


Therefore, He was able to extend the grace and mercy of God to those who would have been doomed under the law of Moses (Acts 13:38-39).


The Old Testament law was like a judge passing sentence upon sin.


*** Jesus became our advocate (or lawyer). Even more than that, He became our substitute, bearing "our sins in his own body on the tree" (1 Pet. 2:24).


He didn't destroy God's judgment; He fulfilled it in Himself, so that we could go free.
This forever changed God's dealings with sinful man. FOREVER!


In light of what Jesus has done in the New Covenant, we would be rebuked for trying to release God's wrath upon others as was done in the Old Covenant.


Likewise, if Jesus would have been on the earth in His physical body, reconciling the world unto Himself in the days of Elijah, then Elijah would have been rebuked for his actions, as recorded in 2 Kings 1:9-15.


There is a difference between Old Testament law and New Testament grace.

"For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ"
(John 1:17).
