“Do not think that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I did not come to destroy but to fulfill. For assuredly, I say to you, till heaven and earth pass away, one jot or one tittle will by no means pass from the law till all is fulfilled.
Matthew 5:17 – 18
Not to destroy what? ‘The Law or the Prophets.’
‘I did not come to destroy but to fulfill.’
To fulfill what? ‘The Law and the Prophets.’
And what does that mean, ‘Come to fulfill The Law or the Prophets?’
They left out the single most important thing, the one thing that made possible all the other things they claimed were HIS mission, and that is the New Covenant that must be kept and honored (obeyed and performed) to receive Grace, salvation, redemption from sin and to enter into the Kingdom of GOD at JESUS CHRIST Second Advent. Yet no one asked why. Why have these professed "Christianities" left out the number one reason JESUS CHRIST was born as a SON of man? If anyone is wandering, here is the reason: because if they do then every one of the truly sincere disciples who fear GOD will wonder and ask themselves, 'Why then did Catholics and the Protestants change it to Easter Sunday? Why have they taught and advanced the forsaking of the Covenant made in the blood of JESUS CHRIST? What does that mean?'
And that is exactly how anyone who wished to learn whether someone who preached JESUS CHRIST is truly Christian or Antichrist. Because no true Christian will preach the breaking of the New Covenant, whereas every agent of Satan will preached precisely that by twisting the Scriptures to say something that it did not say which in this case was the purported celebratiion of CHIRST's resurrection as the Passover so that none may enter into to honor and keep the New Covenant to avail of the Grace that frees them from sin and the penalty of death. Things cannot get any simpler than this yet all of professed Christianity cannot understand it. AMAZING!
But that is not all they, these “Christian” don’t hold to any of the New Testament teachings either, nope, not even the very New Covenant that they claimed they are under. This too I have very clearly shown from what I have written so far until this point. Now wait till you read all the rest of ten chapters of this book.
The Sabbath Changed By JESUS?
During one of the Feast of GOD, the celebration of which had been changed by the Jews to their convenience, JESUS CHRIST healed a man who had an illness for thirty-eight years. And that happened on the Sabbath. The religious authorities charged that HE had broken the Sabbath commandment by working on that day.
The man departed and told the Jews that it was Jesus who had made him well.
For this reason the Jews persecuted Jesus, and sought to kill Him, because He had done these things on the Sabbath. But Jesus answered them, “My Father has been working until now, and I have been working.”
Therefore the Jews sought all the more to kill Him, because He not only broke the Sabbath, but also said that God was His Father, making Himself equal with God.
John 5:15 – 18
Or have you not read in the law that on the Sabbath the priests in the temple profane the Sabbath, and are blameless? Yet I say to you that in this place there is One greater than the temple.
Matthew 12:5 – 6
If a man receives circumcision on the Sabbath, so that the law of Moses should not be broken, are you angry with Me because I made a man completely well on the Sabbath?
Likewise the people of the land shall worship at the entrance to this gateway before the LORD on the Sabbaths and the New Moons. The burnt offering that the prince offers to the LORD on the Sabbath day shall be six lambs without blemish, and a ram without blemish; and the grain offering shall be one ephah for a ram, and the grain offering for the lambs, as much as he wants to give, as well as a hin of oil with every ephah.
Ezekiel 46:3 – 5
“Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have neglected the weightier matters of the law: justice and mercy and faith. These you ought to have done, without leaving the others undone. Blind guides, who strain out a gnat and swallow a camel!
Matthew 23:23 - 24
Below then are some remaining concepts that we need to understand in communication.
Absolute And Relative.
Absolute statements pertain to absolute truth and things that applies all the time. An example of an absolute statement which is also definitive would be 1 John 3:4:
Whoever commits sin also commits lawlessness, and sin is lawlessness.
1 John 3:4
Other absolute statements:
All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made.
So are the concepts in the words 'truth' and 'lies'. Truth also has a concept of factual with an opposing concept of untruth and/or erroneous.
For example the word 'good' depending on the context use can carry a relative concept such as when we say, 'This is good but that is better.' (1 Corinthians 7:38). In such a case the context is that of comparing intensity or degree and does not carry the same meaning as when it is measured against the concept of 'evil.' Just as the word 'right' carry two different concepts depending on the context of use. 'Left' and 'right' are relative and is direction dependent so the word 'right' when use in this context do not carry the same meaning as when it is compared or measured against 'wrong.'
Specific and General, Definitive and Indicative.
But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.
Love does no harm to a neighbor; therefore love is the fulfillment of the law.
Those statements in quoted above are definitive as also is this following verse:
If someone says, “I love God,” and hates his brother, he is a liar; for he who does not love his brother whom he has seen, how can he love God whom he has not seen?
1 John 4:20
Indicative carries the concept of probability. Examples: mammals are warm blooded; birds have wings; human walks on two legs; etc.
