The word – “FULFIL” — found in Matthew 5: 17 does it mean as many teach; ‘abolish’, ‘end’, ‘remove’, ‘void’, ‘repeal’, ‘revoke’, ‘rescind’, ‘retract’, overthrow or ‘cancel’ ?
THE — “MANY’,— maybe 80 or 90 % of so called Christians, hate the HOLY LAW of GOD and believe Jesus Christ – was forced – to come to earth to remove The Law because it was “against us” and was a very grievous impossible evil burden and thus a huge mistake —-That doctrine is a Satanic LIE!
THE – “many” – use - ONE SINGLE WORD — found in Matthew 5 as proof Jesus Christ came to abolish GOD’s HOLY LAW which God placed in the Covenant mediated by Moses to guide GOD’s chosen people into living in perfect harmony, in perfect UNITY, in peace and in plenty and as a LIGHT to the gentiles.
These so called “Christians”, Christian in name only, must reject everything Christ spoke before this — “ONE WORD” – and everything spoken AFTER this “one word” found in Matthew 5 to be able – they desperately hope — to void, to abolish, to end the LAW they hate and steadfastly refuse to OBEY !
WHY must they reject chapter 5 ???
All the other words spoken by Jesus Christ recorded in chapter 5 on the subject of GOD’s HOLY LAW renders their entire premise, their entire doctrine —-
—- INVALID —–
Do you have the intellectual honesty and integrity to study the all the words spoken by our Savior in Matthew 5?
CAN you honestly study the definitions found in Strong’s Concordance of that ONE word –“ FULFIL” for the purpose of seeking the TRUTH?
Do you seek TRUTH above all else – or – are you so blinded by your hatred of God’s Law, that perfect Law of FREEDOM, that even the clear words of Jesus Christ must be rejected ?
The words spoken by Jesus Christ can and have been slanted and twisted by translators to match the translators own beliefs and by doing so have deceived the many.
By simply refusing to accept even the possibility one word was deceptively translated to deceive, so called Christians are rejecting God’s authority and the rule of His Son Jesus Christ, our MASTER, over them.
14 But his citizens hated him, and sent a message after him, saying, “We will not have this man to reign over us”.
By accepting the erroneous intent of the word “fulfil” — you -also are stating:
“We will not have this man (Jesus Christ) to reign over us.”
The 40,000 diverse flavors of so called Christianity demand to be freed from GOD’s Law, freed from the authority and rule of God and His Son and they demand the right to “worship’ as is “right” in their own eyes .
So called christianity simply wants to be freed from all heavenly authority and “Just believe” and just “DO” nothing more .
When confronted with the question posed by Jesus Christ “Why call you ME LORD LORD and DO NOT the things I say?” most simply ignore that question as if it was never was spoken by our Savior, they simply ignore exactly as they ignore all but one word of Matthew chapter 5.
Matthew 5 contains the TRUTH taught by the SON of God so Let us see if Jesus Christ did end the law or is that just a “hope” of the many deceived folks.
In verses 14 – 16 above Jesus Christ teaches His disciples they must have GOOD WORKS and those WORKS must be seen by others – why? To glorify our Father in heaven.
How we live our lives, what laws are followed and obeyed — which is our LIGHT to others— , we are told Glorify our Father in heaven and then Jesus Christ spoke what we find next in verse 17.
Also please take note we are commanded to glorify not Jesus but our Father in heaven.
In verse 17 Christ begins to explain He came “NOT” to change — to abolish — to destroy — to overthrow – to end or to tear down – THAT which — Glorifies our Father.
HERE in verse 17 we find that — ONE WORD – used to abolish God’s Law:
Please take careful note — Jesus Christ told us - twice – NOT TO THINK HE came to destroy the LAW — but so called Christians ignore what Christ told them – NOT to DO – and then demand Christ came to destroy God’s HOLY LAW, that HOLY LAW which Glorifies our Father in Heaven.

Let us use the definition found in Strong’s in place of the word “fulfill”.
In the balance of Matthew chapter 5 Jesus Christ explains HE came not to abolish or to destroy the Law but to complete it by making it FULL, by filling the LAW to the full!
Jesus Christ came to — FILL– the HOLY LAW of God to ‘full capacity” — not to destroy it.
Did Christ not state twice “I came not to destroy”? Twice !!! And yet folks use that word “fulfil” to imply Christ did indeed destroy the Law!
Are they not, by that false doctrine, calling Christ a liar??
In the balance of Matthew 5, which we will go through scripture by scripture, we will find Jesus Christ condemns those that teach it is just fine to break the LAW AND He further explains how HE did filled the LAW to FULL capacity.
Before we move on to the other scriptures let’s take a look at that word Christ used twice; “destroy”.
◄ 2647. kataluó
kataluó: to destroy, overthrow
Original Word: καταλύω
Part of Speech: Verb
Phonetic Spelling: (kat-al-oo’-o)
Short Definition: I break up, overthrow, unharness, find a lodging
Definition: (lit: I loosen thoroughly), (a) trans: I break up, overthrow, destroy, both lit. and met., (b) I unyoke, unharness a carriage horse or pack animal; hence: I put up, lodge, find a lodging.
NAS Exhaustive Concordance
to destroy, overthrow
abolish (2), destroy (5), destroyed (1), find lodging (1), guest (1), overthrow (1), overthrown (1), tear down (1), torn down (4).
Is it not clear why Jesus Christ chose the word destroy because He never intended to destroy — but to make the Law greater, broader and wider i.e. complete!
To further prove that intent, here is a prophecy given through GOD’s prophet Isaiah.
Continuing in Matthew 5
Question: is the heaven above still blue and is the night sky still filled with the moon and the stars and does the sun come up every morning?
Are we still walking upon this good green earth?
If so then the LAW has not passed away, not one comma or period —nada!
19 Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: —but whosoever shall do and teach [them], the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.
With this paper the LAW is being “taught’ and this paper is admonishing others to “DO’ the LAW.
If Jesus Christ in verse 17 intended to end the LAW , intended to abolish the LAW —- PLEASE explain why He would then make the statement found in verse 19 condemning those that “shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven:” And then go on to state those that DO and TEACH THE LAW shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.
What boggles the mind are those folks that even with the knowledge of what verses 18 and 19 state - still blatantly teach men to ignore and transgress God’s HOLY LAW. What can they be thinking?? Has Satan deceived them to the extent they can not even believe the words of Jesus Christ?
The only means by which a human being can be made “Righteous” is by being “washed’ by the Blood of Jesus Christ!!
ONLY the BLOOD of Jesus Christ can remove our sins – there is no other means by which a person can be made righteous in our Father’s eyes.
22 But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire.
Jesus Christ begins with verse 20 to explain how The LAW has been filled to the full, how it has been completed and made wider.
The scribes and Pharisees kept the “letter” of the Law but in their minds they transgressed every one of the Commandments.
The Law given to the children of Israel in the wilderness was only a physical law: thus physically murdering another person was sin: but now Christ has raised the bar by making the LAW Spiritual and thus greater and wider and NOW COMPLETE.
The LAW is both now physical and Spiritual and thus even more impossible for an unconverted person to obey.
Now even if you do not actually physically murder a person – but only in your mind desire to murder — YOU HAVE TRANSGRESSED THE LAW and are in danger of Gehenna fire i.e. the lake of Fire.
25 Agree with thine adversary quickly, whiles thou art in the way with him; lest at any time the adversary deliver thee to the judge, and the judge deliver thee to the officer, and thou be cast into prison.
Jesus Christ did not end the Law with verse 17 but instead expanded the law to include —– adultery that “occurs only in ones mind” and not just the physical act of adultery.
Thus if you even lust after a women — in your mind, — because the law was “expanded”, “made greater’, “fill to the full’ and made “wider” thus spiritual — YOU HAVE SINNED and are in danger of being cast into the Lake of fire if you do not repent — so state our Savior Jesus Christ.
Please do not attempt to tell us that the commandment against adultery ended with the death of Jesus Christ. If so please explain why Christ would use HIS 3 ½ years to teach LAW He knew was going to be aborted??
29 And if thy right eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast [it] from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not [that] thy whole body should be cast into hell.
Lust begins by what the eye sees and thus it is in the mind lust is formed.
Once lust is created in your mind (spiritual), then with your physical body parts — sin can take place physically.
32 But I say unto you, (Christ is making wider the commandment) That whosoever shall put away his wife, saving for the cause of fornication, causeth her to commit adultery: and whosoever shall marry her that is divorced committeth adultery.
To add insult to injury for those that demand the law be abolished, Jesus Christ states if you marry a divorced women you are breaking the 7th Commandment.
Again please do not attempt to make the case the above was only while Christ was alive and it changed after His death. Attempting to confirm that lie would be far beyond stupid, actually moronic.
Why do you suppose Jesus Christ keeps pointing to our FATHER in Heaven?
We are to follow Christ as “HE” FOLLOWS our FATHER and we are to pray to and worship our Father in heaven, our relationship is with our Father; a Father/son relationship. Jesus Christ is our elder brother and high priest.
The “Perfection” we are to seek is found in our FATHER.
Jesus Christ came and performed — HIS FATHERS’ WILL– to perfection.
By the life Christ led i.e. 100% LAWFUL; Christ revealed to those His Father calls the PERFECTION found in our Father, thus by following Christ as HE followed His Father we are also on the path to the perfection found in our FATHER.
Jesus Christ performed HIS FATHER’s WILL – only – and never did Christ seek HIS OWN WILL.
Jesus Christ only SPOKE and DID what HIS FATHER gave HIM to DO and to SPEAK thus it is impossible Christ came to abolish His Fathers’ LAW as that LAW reveals the PERFECTION found in THE FATHER, that same perfection we are to seek.
The LAW is declaired througout the WORD of GOD to be Holy, Just and Good and existed before creation and as the Father and the Son are ONE in all things and ONE in every way THUS they both love and obey their OWN LAW!
Do you actually believe what is “HOLY” JUST and GOOD can be aborted, abolished or destroyed??
That also applies to the “HOLY” SABBATH.
If they speak not according to the LAW there is NO TRUTH in them!
Is this scripture written by God’s prophet Isaiah a lie ???
Did Jesus Christ come to void this scripture and create NEW LIGHT i.e. NEW TRUTH, NEW LAW ?????
Can the ONE you worship “CHANGE’ ? or is He the same today and forever!
If the same forever — it is then utterly impossible for what is deemed to be LIGHT, what is declared to be HOLY, JUST and GOOD — to ever change?
