The Holy Spirit said to me that the law is like a house built without a roof and Jesus is the roof that completes it and makes it perfect. This is what it means to fulfill. This analogy supports what Matt 5:17 tells us, “Think not that I am come to destroy the law and the prophets: I am not come to destroy but to fulfil.
Matthew 22:36-40 tells us that Jesus was asked the following question by a lawyer to tempt him?
36 Master, which is the great commandment in the law?
37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.
38 This is the first and great commandment.
39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.
You cannot discard something and at the same time hang it on something. (This brings to my mind the proverb, “You can’t have your cake and eat it too.”)
We are all familiar with hanging clothes. Can you both discard your clothes and at the same time hang them? If you cannot do that then you cannot destroy the law, abolish the law, render it useless, discard it and still hang it on the two great commandments ( Matt 22:40) quoted above.
Each time we read the two great commandments…
Matthew 22:37 “Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.”
Matthew 22:39 “Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.”
It reminds us that the law and the prophets hang on them which are found in the old testament.
The law can never be discarded and will never be discarded. It is there for the guidance of both Jews and Gentiles. It is also useful in teaching both Jews and Gentiles.
Matthew 5:18 tells us, “Till heaven and earth pass away, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.”
Can heaven pass away? Can the earth pass away? Can both heaven and earth pass away? NO. Then the law will remain until Jesus comes.
Matthew 5:19 tells us what happens to people who break them and teach men to break them, too.
In the kingdom of heaven, they are called “the least” even if they live in mansions. Have millions in their bank account. Have multitudes following them. Have expensive things. The kingdom of Heaven gives them the name “the least” and puts them in the group called “the least.”
But if you do and teach them, the kingdom of heaven calls you “great” and puts you in the group called “the great” even if you have little or nothing.
Grace and peace be multiplied to you through the knowledge of God
By Evangelist K. Michael
If you have never accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour and you will like to inherit eternal life. I would like to invite you to pray this simple prayer with me right now.
Lord Jesus, I repent of my sins. Thank you for forgiving me. Please come into my life and save me. I confess you as my Lord and Savior and believe in my heart that God has raised you from the dead, Amen.
I wish you congratulations, and would like to advise to ask God to lead you to a church that teaches truth. To get baptized and receive the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in tongues. May the Lord richly bless you and keep you, Amen.
