When taken out of context, we can miss the entire point!

I don't think it's a coinsidence that YHWH wrote his commandments in stone. Today, most Christians are extremely mislead in what they believe Paul was referring to as not being under "The Law". They continue to hold on to that twisted teaching that is either not biblically sound or, they simply do not care or take the time to understand what Paul is actually saying.

What I'm referencing here (of course), is Romans 8:1-2[1]:

"Therefore there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set you free from the law of sin and of death."

When Yeshua said He came to fulfill the law, to PLEROO the Law of God. The Greek word PLEROO[2] means to fully preach. This means that Yeshua said He came to FULLY PREACH the Law of God. Because Yeshua FULLY PREACHED the Law of God, then perhaps we should listen to what our Messiah preached. In Matthew 5:17-19[3] it says:

"Do not think that I came to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I did not come to abolish but to fulfill. For truly I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away,not the smallest letter or stroke shall pass from the Law until all is accomplished. "Whoever then annuls one of the least of these commandments, and teaches others [to do] the same, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but whoever keeps and teaches [them], he shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven."

There are several other places I've found in scripture that reference this very same idea in both the Old and New Testaments; John 15:7-11[4], Romans 7:9-25[5], Deuteronomy 6:17[6], Psalm 103:15-18[7]. Though the context of the individual messages differ, they still press this understanding onto God's people. Well then, who are God's people? I'll definitly be sharing that in another post!

I hope that the time you've spent here blesses you and your family. And that it would give you something to consider when you think about what it means to give your life over to Jesus.
