FULFILLED



I was awoken at 12:35am today by the Holy Spirit with this word on my head like if they were spoken in my mind: FULFILLED and then it came this passage of Matthew 5.

Matthew 5:17-18

Do not think that I came to annul the Law or the Prophets; I did not come to annul, but to fulfill.

To fulfill in Greek-English

4137. pleroo play-ro'-o from 4134; to make replete, i.e. (literally) to cram (a net), level up (a hollow), or (figuratively) to furnish (or imbue, diffuse, influence), satisfy, execute (an office), finish (a period or task), verify (or coincide with a prediction), etc.:--accomplish, X after, (be) complete, end, expire, fill (up), fulfill, (be, make) full (come), fully preach, perfect, supply.

The Law or the Prophets refers to the Book of the Law - The Torah and the writings of the Prophets.The Book of the Law contains 613 commandments. It was to this that Christ said, “one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.”


The Law and the Prophets were fulfilled at the moment the veil was rent in twain from top to bottom and Christ cried with a loud voice, “IT IS FINISHED!”

Man could not be justified by obedience to the law of Moses (Acts 13:39-And everyone believing in this One is justified from all things which you could not be justified by the Law of Moses ; Romans. 3:20 - Because by works of law no flesh will be justified before Him-for through law is full knowledge of sin) or by any legal system which conditioned salvation upon perfect obedience. However, the law did serve its purpose. It brought a knowledge of sin (Rom. 3:20; Romans 7:7- What, then, shall we say? Is the law sin? Let it not be! Bit I did not know sin except through law; for also I did not know lust except the law said, You shall not lust.). It pointed mankind to the coming Messiah (Galatians 3:24- So that the Law has become a trainer of us until Christ, that we might be justified by faith. ; Romans 10:3 - For being ignorant of the righteousness of God, and seeking to establish their own righteousness, they did not submit to the righteousness of God.).

I pray you may be blessed by this short message and that you do not try to be justified by anything you do, but by faith in Jesus Christ, for NOBODY can come to the Father except through His only begotten son Jesus Christ.

In Christ,
Cynthia
