‘Nutin’ But ‘Da’ Truth
17 “Do not think that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I did not come to destroy but to fulfill. 18 For assuredly, I say to you, till heaven and earth pass away, one jot or one tittle will by no means pass from the law till all is fulfilled. 19 Whoever therefore breaks one of the least of these commandments, and teaches men so, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but whoever does and teaches them, he shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven. 20 For I say to you, that unless your righteousness exceeds the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven.
You will hear me hopefully always proclaiming that ‘everything’ is about our Lord Jesus Christ. As the book of Revelation declares for us in chapter 1, 8 “I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End,” says the Lord, “who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty.”
Today, I hope that you can understand more fully how Wonderful our Great God Is.
The Apostle Matthew is the one, who as a follower of the Lord Jesus Christ, zeros in on this fact. Our Precious Holy Adoni Yeshua fulfills all that has been written about the Messiah.

The Law was technically the first five books of the Bible. Now, I would like you to be honest with yourselves as I make this statement. As a young believer I often avoided the third through fifth books because for me they were too redundant. How about you? Now tell the truth and shame the Devil, ‘Did you ever think the same way?’
But as The Lord has given me some years to invest in studying His Word, I have found that these same books that I often avoided are chock full of gold. Let me give you an example. In the book of Leviticus chapter 16 we read about God’s instruction to the people to pick two goats during the ‘Day of Atonement’.
“16 Now the LORD spoke to Moses after the death of the two sons of Aaron, when they offered profane fire before the LORD, and died; 2 and the LORD said to Moses: “Tell Aaron your brother not to come at just any time into the Holy Place inside the veil, before the mercy seat which is on the ark, lest he die; for I will appear in the cloud above the mercy seat. 3 “Thus Aaron shall come into the Holy Place: with the blood of a young bull as a sin offering, and of a ram as a burnt offering. 4 He shall put the holy linen tunic and the linen trousers on his body; he shall be girded with a linen sash, and with the linen turban he shall be attired. These are holy garments. Therefore he shall wash his body in water, and put them on. 5 And he shall take from the congregation of the children of Israel two kids of the goats as a sin offering, and one ram as a burnt offering. 6 “Aaron shall offer the bull as a sin offering, which is for himself, and make atonement for himself and for his house. 7 He shall take the two goats and present them before the LORD at the door of the tabernacle of meeting. 8 Then Aaron shall cast lots for the
