Think Not That I Am Come To Destroy The Law, or The Prophets, I Am Not Come To Destroy But To Fulfil

Above are the words of Yashua Messiah (the Lord Jesus Christ) from Matthew 5:17 in the King James Version of The Holy Scriptures, and just lately I have been going head to head with a satanic Judaiser who repeatedly used this verse from Matthew’s Gospel and the one that follows it i.e. Matthew 5:18 to try and prove that The Law and The Commandments are still binding upon Born of God sons and daughters of God.

Matthew 5:17-18 (KJV) Think not that I am come to destroy The Law, or The Prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. 18 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from The Law, till all be fulfilled.

To be honest, I have always found these Holy Scriptures to be a slight thorn in my flesh. The reason for this is that they can too easily be abused and misused and thereby used in a very negative sense in order to support the erroneous demonic ideas of Graceless blasphemers who want to put sons and daughters of God back under The Law of Moses – The Commandments.

We must understand that these outward show commandment keepers (those of the 21st century Pharisee concision) truly believe there is salvation in Moses. They will deny it, of course, until they’re blue in the face, but that changes nothing. That is what they believe and they only ever pay lip service to His Grace. They believe salvation is in obedience to The Law – The Commandments and not through living under Yashua Messiah’s (the Lord Jesus Christ’s) Glorious Saving Grace.

So, let’s analyse what Yashua Messiah was saying here in these verses – the opening statement first:

“Think not that I am come to destroy The Law, or The Prophets.”

And from the Greek MSS transliteral:

Matthew 5:17 (Greek Transliteral) No ye-should-be-inferring that I-came to-down-loose the law or the before-averers (prophets) not I-came to-down-loose but to-fill.

I will be returning to one crucial word here later.

And from Young’s Literal Translation:

Matthew 5:17 (YLT) Do not suppose that I came to thrown down the law and the prophets—I did not come to throw down, but to fulfil.

I have used the YLT version here because I believe the words ‘throw down’ are more accurate and descriptive than the KJV word ‘destroy’, and because Yashua Messiah is NOT a destroyer. Satan The Devil is The Destroyer, not Yashua Messiah. We therefore learn from this that Yashua Messiah did not come to throw down The Law and The Prophets nor do away with them or what they represented, and why would He? He was under The Law Himself and were The Prophets not His messengers in Old Covenant (Testament) times and did they not uphold The Law? Didn’t Yashua Messiah Himself instruct Moses about The Law and tell him what to write down over a period of forty days and forty nights? Doesn’t Paul also make it all clear?

Gal 3:24-26 (KJV) Wherefore The Law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by Faith (righteousness). 25 But after that Faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster (The Law). 26 For ye are all the children (sons) of God by Faith in Christ Jesus. (Brackets and emphasis mine)

The Law WAS our school master in order to bring us to Yashua Messiah. That is all The Law is for, IF you are a follower of Yashua Messiah – The Way and have Faith in Him for your salvation. If you do not have Faith solely in Him for your salvation then you must have your faith in yourself and in something else i.e. YOUR vain attempts at keeping The Law and The Commandments.

Paul also said:

Romans 7:12 (KJV) Wherefore The Law is Holy, and The Commandment Holy, and just, and good.

So what is Paul saying? He’s saying The Law and The Commandments are perfect and Holy – no fault can be found in them. However there is one BIG PROBLEM – man CANNOT OBEY THEM and has never obeyed them. Man in the weak fleshy condition is incapable of keeping The Law or The Commandments. So why do Graceless Judaisers think the opposite is the case? Why and how do they think that man can achieve the impossible? Where in the Holy Scriptures does it state that man will one day (sometime never LOL) obtain the ability to OBEY The Law and The Commandments? It ain’t there folks!! Nowhere in The Holy Scriptures does it say that man will one day OBEY The Law or The Commandments. Yes he will follow Yashua Messiah willingly and voluntarily, but not obediently. Furthermore, this is a question I have put to these wretched Judaising people a hundred and one times before and never once received an answer. How can they give an answer, there isn’t an answer other than simple Faith in Yashua Messiah, to which they can never humble themselves.
