Do Not Think I've Come to Abolish the Law or Prophets

Matthew 5:17 is a powerful statement by our Redeemer that whoever does the Law and Prophets and teaches them will be called great in the kingdom, whereas those who take away from it even in the slightest and teach others to do the same will be called least.  No partitioning His law into parts (moral, civic, ceremonial) nor justifying being rid of some/most of it!  If we want to be walking in faith, that means walking in faithfulness to every word what has proceeded from His mouth!  YHWH called heaven and earth as His two witnesses to His Law in Deuteronomy 30:19 hence Yeshua standing firm on its validity here and in Luke 16:17.  Given that 2 Peter 3:13 confirms we are still waiting for this new heaven and earth, let us rejoice in the Truth of His Word and let us stay awake to test those who call themselves Apostles and yet are false because they altered YHWH's law, His appointed times and New Moon calendar!  (2 Corinthians 11:14-15, Revelation 2:2, Daniel 7:25 and Daniel 11:30).  We are still waiting for the fullness of restoration to come hence Yeshua's words: "Everything written about me in the Law of Moses and the Prophets and the Psalms must be fulfilled."  (Luke 24:44)  Let us hold dear the Law and Prophets and the Psalms like a love letter from our Beloved... every promise of His yet to be fulfilled are like a tender comfort as we persevere in patient endurance for His return.
