The LORD thy God will circumcise thine heart, and the heart of thy seed, to love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, that thou mayest live. The circumcision made without hands in the cutting off the body of the sins of the flesh. We are a new Creature in Christ Jesus. Behold all things are to new and of GOD! For He was manifested to take away our sin and in Him is no sin. For it was not possible for the blood of bulls and the ashes of a heifer to take away sin. If it were would they not have ceased to offered? because that the worshippers once purged should have had no more conscience of sins. But the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience (our inner self; who we are) from dead works (Sin; for the wages of sin is death) to serve the living God? Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being separated from our sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed. For by one offering he hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified. Whereof the Holy Ghost also is a witness to us: for after that he had said before, This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith the Lord, I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them; And their sins and iniquities will in no wise be in my remembrance.

T
he LORD thy God will circumcise thine heart, and the heart of thy seed, to love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, that thou mayest live.

The Prophecy found in Jeremiah has been available since the time that GOD used Moses as HIS instrument to reveal HIS Grace .

If thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to keep his commandments and his statutes which are written in this book of the law, and if thou turn unto the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul.

For this commandment which I command thee this day.


Which commandment?

The one found in the previous verse.

"To keep HIS commandments and his statutes which are written in this book of the law." Please notice that the judgements is not mentioned.

Why?

Because HIS commandments and his statutes which are written in this book of the law is not hidden from thee, neither is it far off. It is not in heaven, that thou shouldest say, Who shall go up for us to heaven, and bring it unto us, that we may hear it, and do it? Neither is it beyond the sea, that thou shouldest say, Who shall go over the sea for us, and bring it unto us, that we may hear it, and do it? But the word is very nigh unto thee, in thy mouth, and in thy heart, that thou mayest do it. So there was to be no need for any judgements contained there in if they have received this circumcision made without hands.

This Book of the Law encapsulates everything that GOD would have us be in Christ. For He was to be the first among many brethren! This is why Paul said Christ is the point aimed at in regards to the Law to all them that believe. In saying that he continues and broadens the scope by quoting Deut 30:10-14.

By doing so he included the Gentiles in what was written; the circumcision made without hands.

Which by the way they would have looked up the verses Deut. Because at the very least these are the Scriptures they would have had access to; the Pentateuch.

Paul knew this. That is why he quoted it. He knew they and any Israelite with them would look it up. And in doing so they would have made this connection..

But the righteousness which is of faith speaketh on this wise, Say not in thine heart, Who shall ascend into heaven? (that is, to bring Christ (Anointed; GOD's commands and statutes written in the Book of the Law. In other words the Word; the Divine utterances) down from above:) Or, Who shall descend into the deep? (that is, to bring up Christ (Anointed; GOD's commands and statutes written in the Book of the Law. In other words the Word; the Divine utterances) again from the dead.) But what saith it? The word (the Divine utterances; Christ the Anointed; GOD's commands and statutes written in the Book of the Law.) is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: (that thou mayest do it) that is, the word of faith, which we preach.


We have been made able bodied ministers. Not of the letter but of the Spirit. Not in Tables of stone but in the fleshly tables of the heart. For this, HIS commands and HIS Statutes which are written in the Book of the Law are written in our hearts and in our minds and in our mouths and in our hands that we do them. Christ in us the hope of Glory. The Gospel. For it is HE that works in us both to will and do HIS good pleasure. The circumcision made without hands.
