“Some love what they

 think My Word says,

But they do not love the Truth.

For when My Word speaks contrary to

The doctrines and traditions of men

They refuse My Word, which they profess to love.”


He, who has ears, let him hear what the Spirit is saying to the churches.


There is much teaching being introduced to the American churches by Messianic Jews that contradicts the teaching of Jesus! Their teaching at first appears to be true because they are quoting the Scripture. However, under closer scrutiny their attempt at discrediting Classical Christian Teaching will become apparent to any that do not have stone ears!


Greek 4137 πληροω play-ro'-o  (but to fulfill)

From G4134; to make replete, that is, (literally) to cram (a net), level up (a hollow), or (figuratively) to furnish (or imbue, diffuse, influence), satisfy, execute (an office), finish (a period or task), verify (or coincide with a prediction), etc.: - accomplish, X after, (be) complete, end, expire, fill (up), fulfill, (be, make) full (come), fully preach, perfect, supply.


We must first understand their premise and then look at companion scripture to the Matthew passage below.

This will afford us the ability to rightly divide the Word of Truth! Yes, even divide it from a Christian heritage,

as opposed to a Jewish heritage that would “bring Jesus down again” to this earth, which the Scripture denies!


First, the claim by these Judaizers and those Judaised is that the Torah (Law) has not all been fulfilled! They quote Jesus’ words in:

  • Mat 5:17-18 Think not that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets: I came not to destroy, but to fulfill.4137 For verily I say unto you, till heaven and earth pass away, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass away from the law, till all things are accomplished.


(Assumed to mean by the Judaised the Mosaic Law {Torah} will not pass away)


  • Luke 24:44 And he said unto them, These are the words which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, 4137 which were written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the psalms, concerning me. (So stating those things have!)


(Here we have defined more fully as to what law Jesus was referring to in Matthew! Now that we know it is the law of Moses that was meant it becomes a little plainer that His discourse from there on (Beatitudes) in Matthew was a discourse on the true meaning of that law, which if obeyed, would bring them to Moral Perfection, vs. 48. The assertion that there is more to transpire on this earth concerning Jesus in the Torah is nothing less than their desire to be still God’s chosen people and the Gentiles a lesser people and only parenthetical. This is proved to be a lie in the SONS OF ISRAEL following!)


  • Acts 15:5 But there rose up certain of the sect of the Pharisees, which believed, saying, That it was needful to circumcise them, and to command them to keep the law of Moses.


(The Jewish believers were insisting that the Gentile converts to the Jewish Sect called the Way must become like them by being circumcised and keeping the Law of Moses. What is happening today is a return to this Judaising effort to “observe times and seasons” that our Jewish apostle told the Gentiles were “nailed to the cross” in {Col. 2: 14} and to the Galatians that they had been “bewitched” by the Jews!) The 50 A.D. Council in Jerusalem {Acts 15: 28-29} via the Holy Spirit, only put four things from the Mosaic Law on the Gentiles!) 


  • Eph 2:14-16 For he is our peace, who made both one, and brake down the middle wall of partition, having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; that he might create in himself of the twain one new man, so making peace; and might reconcile them both in one body unto God through the cross, having slain the enmity thereby:
  • Php 3:2-3 Watch out for those people who behave like dogs! They are evil and want to do more than just circumcise you. But we are the ones who are truly circumcised, because we worship by the power of God's Spirit and take pride in Christ Jesus. We don't brag about what we have done” CEV


These passages are ignored by the Messianic Jews, who refuse to be called Christian, because the name applies to the Gentiles: “they were first called Christian at Antioch.”  So what is really happening here is not a contradiction between Matt. 5: 17-18 & Lk. 24: 44, but a brood of Zionist’s calling themselves Messianic trying to bring Gentile Christians into bondage from their Law that is ‘no more in Christ,’ the very thing that they were doing to the Galatians! They won’t even call Him Christ, because that is a non- Hebraic name!                      

OK, so what about: till heaven and earth pass away?


    1. Unless you are unable to see the contradictions created between “till heaven and earth pass away” and the other verses listed above, you are brought to the conclusion that Jesus has to be referring to another Law besides the Law of Moses!
    2. Actually, the laws Jesus quoted by saying, “you have heard it said,” were part of the Decalogue, in other words, He was quoting God’s Law not Moses’ Law! *  As has been said above in the verses listed, they are canceled and taken out of the way and Paul also said, “do not become entangled again with a yoke of bondage!”
    3. So why do Gentile Christians want to be entangled again with Jewish ordinances like the Feasts and Sabbaths? I answer: the American Judaised Evangelical has been mislead because they don’t love the truth at worst and at best, most do not want to rightly divide the Word of God—its too much trouble for them and the clergy, both of which are not noble (Bereans)!


* Mat 11:13 For all the Prophets and the Law prophesied until John.


Luke 16:16 The Law and the Prophets were until John; from then the kingdom of God is being preached, and everyone is pressing into it.
