Shalom.

Today is Rishon, 3-24.

Jesus Christ, Yeshua HaMashiach, is the only begotten Son of God, The Messiah, and The Prophet foretold.

He said the following.



Matthew 5:17-20 NASB - 17 "Do not think that I came to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I did not come to abolish but to fulfill. 18 "For truly I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not the smallest letter or stroke shall pass from the Law until all is accomplished. 19 "Whoever then annuls one of the least of these commandments, and teaches others to do the same, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but whoever keeps and teaches them, he shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven. 20 "For I say to you that unless your righteousness surpasses that of the scribes and Pharisees, you will not enter the kingdom of heaven.


How are we to understand The New Covenant which is for the house of Israel and the house of Judah and is God's law written on minds and hearts and is in Jesus' own blood, Jesus who died for us, in light of what Jesus has said here that those who keep and teach God's Commandments are to be called great in the Kingdom of Heaven?

I am a Jew, of Israel, as a proselyte and a convert. I am also a citizen of the United States of America since birth. I accept the TaNaKh and Matthew through Revelation.

Shalom.

Jacob
