VIII. MAIN BODY:
A. The Law was written on the Stones (JESUS)
"And he wrote there upon the stones [ALEPH-TAV] a copy of the law of Moses,"
Luke 24:44 (Amplified Bible)
24:44 Then He said to them, This is what I told you while I was still with you: everything which is written concerning Me in the Law of Moses and the Prophets and the Psalms must be fulfilled.
There's no escape from the Law, if you ever able to fulfill it, there's a curse, and if you try to fulfill it, and forgotten even one, there's also a curse. The right word to say is not "end of law" but "fulfillment of law". Because everyone born in this world, when you ask them, "Why will you go to hell?" they will answer because I have done bad things in my life or when you ask them, "How to go to heaven?" they will say be good and do good things. These are all under the Law, you can never impress GOD with your good works so that He will promote you to Heaven, only JESUS can do that for you. The Law is perfect but human beings are not perfect.
Galatians 3:10 (Amplified Bible)
3:10 And all who depend on the Law [who are seeking to be justified by obedience to the Law of rituals] are under a curse and doomed to disappointment and destruction, for it is written in the Scriptures, Cursed (accursed, devoted to destruction, doomed to eternal punishment) be everyone who does not continue to abide (live and remain) by all the precepts and commands written in the Book of the Law and to practice them.
