What is the sinner's mirror?

The sinner's mirror..

We have been studying shadows as symbols of our travelling authority. And how these shadows are symbols of relationships between you and your Strong Authority. If we walk too far from Jesus, we will be found missing the flow of power from His love.

The Bible speaks about other symbols of relationship.

Jas 1:23 For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass:

  • 24 For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was.
  • 25 But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.

    Here the Bible speaks about the ten commandments being a mirror unto salvation. How do we know the ten commandments is highlighted here rather and the entire torah teachings of salvation as a whole?

    Jas 2:8 � If ye fulfil the royal law according to the scripture, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself, ye do well: 9 But if ye have respect to persons, ye commit sin, and are convinced of the law as transgressors. 10 For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all. 11 For he that said, Do not commit adultery, said also, Do not kill. Now if thou commit no adultery, yet if thou kill, thou art become a transgressor of the law. 12 So speak ye, and so do, as they that shall be judged by the law of liberty.

    The context of the Book of James speaks of the torah teachings having a difference between torah law and ten-commandment law. Notice the ten commandments is a symbol of a mirror in Scripture. What do mirrors do ? They do similar things shadows do, they make relationships from light.

    Notice the sinner looks into the mirror and sees his face is dirty and can do several things...(1) walk away and forget his dirty face, or (2) go and wash because the mirror says his face is dirty.

    Notice the mirror cannot save you, it's purpose is to tell you when your face is dirty. Its the torah teachings of Jesus that was a witness to the mirror that saves. Both the mirror and the torah teachings of salvation are similes of each other, but only Jesus can save us, because He satisfied the sin-offering wages for sinning with His death, and offers us who love Him eternal life. But to respond to this gratitude we are bound in His love to follow all of his love rules.

    When you look into the royal mirror, the image you see is not really there. The affect is formed by the medium and the mirror, as well as light coming into the mirror and leaving it again. This is a mystery of the working of the Holy Spirit who can make crooked people appear straight again, and restore crooked lives into upright ones.

    Isa 40:4 Every valley shall be exalted, and every mountain and hill shall be made low: and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough places plain:

    Praise GOD for the medium who makes things right before GOD. Noticed when Jesus came to earth He would magnify and make the torah teachings of salvation honourable.

    Ps 34:3 O magnify the LORD with me, and let us exalt his name together. Isa 42:21 The LORD is well pleased for his righteousness' sake; he will magnify the law(torah-teachings), and make it honourable

    In this context, the entire torah teachings, including the ten commandments are magnified and made honourable. When you look in a special glass like a magnifying glass, the medium makes special effects depending upon how close or far you are to the glass surface. This effective image we see in the mirror, is made by a relationship concept.

    The closer you look into the mirror, the greater your missing becomes because you see the mirror as ten attitudes about love, much deeper than mere words can describe. As you move further from the mirror and look into it you see only ten words like a negative, and boast about how clever you are in gaining "brownie points" for God so you can enter those pearly white gates, under your own works of righteousness. But such is not the case. All our works is as filthy rags.

    Isa 64:6 � But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away.

    Only Jesus can make us appear righteous when the Father looks into the medium to see our lives. Praise Jesus and the work of the Holy Spirit, in us daily; so we can once more endure the glory of the Father in heaven. The mirror is indeed called a mirror of of freedom or liberty, because when we look into it we see an ongoing need for Jesus love to continue flowing daily through us, a love that only He can provide. Be willing to let Jesus in and take charge of your life. Shalom
