Shabbat Shalom Achim (brothers and sisters in Hebrew)
Oftentimes when we read Scripture, we have our own “understanding” based on what was taught to us while we were growing up. Sometimes those ‘understandings” are carried from generation to generation and as a result are taught to many people. The word fulfill in Matthew 5:17 is one of those “understanding’ that many in Christianity have mistakenly thought they understood and taught it to the next generation.
We need to go back to the source, YHWH, and who He is and what He has done for us. When we read the Torah and Prophets with the right foundation then we can understand what Yahushua was referring to when the word fulfill was used in Matthew 5:17. The word “fulfill” was not to fulfill the Torah and Prophets in the sense that Yahushua brought the end to the Torah and Prophets or that He has met all the requirements of the Torah and Prophets. Far from it!
Watch the video and fully understand what Yahushua came to do when He said that He did not come to destroy the Torah or Prophets, He did not come to destroy but to…
יברכך יהוה וישׁמרך׃
יאר יהוה פניו אליך ויחנך׃
ישׂא יהוה פניו אליך וישׂם לך שׁלום׃
YHWH will kneel before you presenting gifts and will guard you with a hedge of protection,
YHWH will illuminate the wholeness of his being toward you bringing order and he will beautify you,
YHWH will lift up his wholeness of being and look upon you and he will set in place all you need to be whole and complete (Numbers 6:24-26)
Have a blessed Shabbat
