“Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross;”
King James Version (KJV)

One has to look at the entire chapter of Colossians 2 and what it is saying to the Spiritual person, having been completed in him and dwelling all the fullness of the Godhead bodily in putting off the body of sin of the flesh by circumcision of Christ, being buried with him in baptism, risen with him thru faith, having being forgiven of all trespasses, blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary against us, nailing it to the cross, he triumphed over them in it, then he said let no man judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of a holyday, or of the new moon, or of the Sabbath, which is a shadow of things to come, just as Christ healed on the Sabbath, and did things contrary to the Pharisees understanding Paul is saying we too must operate not in the flesh but in the spirit putting away the ordinances and moving on.

wow, it is obvious that too many people take God, our Creator and holy Father's Truth out of context! yes He definitely freed us of the guilt from the great Accuser. being born into sin is clearly a statement that shows who's side we are on early on in our immaturity. Jesus took away our marriage to Satan and set us free so that we are subjected unto the Father in heaven just as He is. that is not a burden but a blessing to follow after the greatest, most perfect being of all time and a promise that we are able to take after our holy Father! after all, the 10 commandments are the perfect character of God! who would ever wish to delete them aside from God's enemy, the great Accuser, Satan himself?

The 10 commandments are at the same time the 10 divine charges against man as Jesus demonstrated. For instance he says if you look at a woman with an adulterous eye, you have already committed adultery in your hear. Now this leaves a guilty verdict upon one. With this in mind we can appreciate Colossians 2:14.

Mankind was subjected to eternal death through the fall of Adam and Eve, but the coming on board of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ and His subsequent crucifixion brought back our rights to the heavenly inheritance. He nailed our failures, loosed the chains that connected us to the world and He connected us to Himself. Praise the Lord. Oh! Come on let us rejoice; He is the Commander of the armies of heaven, He blotted everything that was fighting us. Yes, he won the battle for us at the Cross. Believe me He did it. Yes, He suffered it for us, He carried the humiliation in our positions. Paul rightly pointed out that to the Philippians in Philippians 2:6-10. After all He was given the Name above every name, believe me. Mordecai and Esther did it, they reversed the cruel anticipation of the king's aid Haman. He cancelled them for us, yes, for us. FOR YOU AND ME. AMEN.
