His Word is Truth

Unadulterated Biblical Truth

Matthew 5:17


On this page I will cover the multiple misconceptions and false sayings related to Matthew 5:17.




Words of the Messiah;

Matthew 5:17 "Do not think that I have come to do away with the Law or the prophets, I have not come to do away with, but to fulfill, for truly I say unto you, until the heavens and the earth perish, a single letter or a single dot will in no way perish from the Law until all happen. Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments and shall teach others to do the same, shall be called the least in the kingdom of the heavens, but whosoever shall do and teach them the same, shall be called great in the kingdom of the heavens"




When people realize what is written here at the beginning of the "New Testament", false teachers waste no time to step in and try to twist the passage out of context and hide the clear and obvious meaning in order to keep you obedient to them and their lies instead of repenting and being obedient to YHWH and clinging to him.



Yahushua at Matthew 5:17 teaches us to keep the entire Law of
YHWH forever, and that even a single dot will not pass from the Law until the heavens and the earth pass away.
 
Not even a single dot being gone from the Law is a serious contradiction to modern Christianity, and many denominations, wouldn't you agree?

Not only do we learn the Law is still standing, he tells us that those who break even the smallest of the commandments, and teach others to do the same of breaking even the smallest of the commandments, will be called the least in the kingdom of the heavens!


This is a death blow to modern Christianity, and condemns it's leaders!
 Those men who put on an appearance of righteousness and cleanliness, are filthy and filled with darkness!
 The Messiah himself has said they will be called "the least".


Isaiah 8:20 "To the Law and to the testimony, if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them"

Paul;
2 Corinthians 11:14 "And no wonder, for the satan transforms himself as an angel of light, it is not a great matter if also his servants transforms themselves as dispensers of righteousness, those whose end shall be according to their works"



YHWH mentions a time that has not yet taken place, this scripture is yet to be fulfilled.
 Not only is this verse relevant but it also even mentions the new heavens and the new earth;

Isaiah 66:22 "For as the new heavens and the new earth which I will make shall remain before me, says YHWH, so shall your seed and your name remain, and it shall come to pass that from one new moon to another, and from one sabbath to another, shall all flesh come to worship before me, says YHWH, and they shall go forth and look on the carcasses of the men that have transgressed against me, for their worm shall not die, neither shall their fire be quenched, and they shall be a repulsion to all flesh"



Those who disobey YHWH are marching towards this fate.
 So please pay attention to YHWH, and what his Messiah has said.

Luke 13:24 "Strive to enter through the narrow gate. For many, I tell you, will seek to enter and will not be able"







Matthew 5:17 is one of the best verses to share to those who care about what the Messiah said, to show them that the Law is still to be obeyed, and that the Messiah was in agreement with the Law of YHWH.
 
False teachers do their best to play on the words to try and convince you that he said something different, or at least make you think there is room for doubt.


These false teachers want to convince you that we do not have to obey the voice of
YHWH anymore, and that the Messiah supported and taught the same things that modern Christianity teaches, but these actual words from the Messiah go against the wicked teachings, and shows that the real Messiah and the modern denominations are nothing alike.









Messiah instructs us to not think that he has come to do away with the Law or the prophets.

Modern Christianity does the opposite and instructs and demands for us to think that he has come to do away with the Law and the prophets.

Listen to the Messiah, not these false men who are claiming to be followers and servants of the Messiah yet do not do as he taught us!

John 14:23 "Yahushua answered and said to him, if a man love me, he will keep my words"

Matthew 5:17 "Do not think that I have come to do away with the Law or the prophets"


So, let us not forget or ignore this 1st statement when we look at the rest of the passage.
 The false teachers are trying to twist the rest of the passage to basically mean he came to do away with the Law and the Prophets, yet he starts out saying do not think such a thing!

Shouldn't it be obvious enough that the Word of YHWH is not done away with?
 These false men bring to you doctrines of devils.









Modern Christianity holds to it's doctrines of lawlessness,
 but these words straight from the very one they're supposed to be following, contradicts their teachings.
 So, realize that those unwilling to obey the Truth and unwilling to change, must twist these words any way that they can or else they're exposed and would have little to support why they have forsaken the commandments of YHWH and are following their own will and desires.


One of the methods they may use to try and blind is to create a confusing lie, that when he said "but to fulfill", that he meant to bring an end to.
 Fulfill does not mean to end or to do away with.

Their claim is FAR from the context, and doesn't even really make sense.
 
He came to fulfill what is said about him in the scriptures and we clearly are able to understand this if we are never exposed to this deception, so it pains me to even mention this twisted thought and expose you and others to it, I'd much rather it come to an end and be forgotten.
(Notice I said "come to an end", and not "be fulfilled", since that wouldn't make sense, would it?)

You will be safe as long as you allow the Truth to take root in you and grow, and not vain babblings of men.



Speaking of fulfillment, it's part of the prophecies that the Law would be kept with the Messiah in the future!
 
Ezekiel 36:25 "I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you will be clean, I will cleanse you from all your impurities and from all your idols, I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you, I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh, And I will put my Spirit in you and move you to follow my statutes  and be careful to keep my judgments"

Ezekiel 37:24 "My beloved servant will be king over them, and they will all have one shepherd, They will follow my laws and be careful to keep my judgments, They will live in the land I gave to my servant Jacob, the land where your fathers lived, They and their children and their children's children will live there forever, and my beloved servant will be their prince forever, I will make a covenant of peace with them, it will be an everlasting covenant, I will establish them and increase their numbers, and I will put my sanctuary among them forever"






If when Messiah said "fulfill" he really meant "to end" like they're trying to claim, then that would mean it is saying;

"
Do not think I have come to abolish the Law or the
Prophets,
I have not come to abolish,
but I have come to abolish them..
"

He did not say this! And it obviously does not make sense, and is contradictory. Contradictory not only to itself but the rest of the Bible.

They are trying to force an interpretation onto this passage, that does not work.
 Please open your eyes to what they do to the scriptures, and how they do violence to knowledge.
 They will have the souls of your loved ones destroyed in hell if you do not start seeking to understand.




The false teachings are contradicted even more if we read on.
 
He said that until the heavens and the earth perish a single letter or a single dot will in no way perish from the law until all happen.

The heavens and the earth has not perished.


It's right after that he goes on to say whoever breaks the commands, and teaches others to break the commandments will be called the least in the kingdom of the heavens and also even says whoever teaches to keep them will be called great.

It is clear that he was not giving a teaching here about the Law being removed. He was teaching us to keep his Father's commands.


He as well said in Luke;

Luke 16:17 "It is easier for the heavens and the earth to disappear than for one small mark of the Law to disappear"



The Messiah is clearly saying we must keep every single dot of the Law here and those who teach against keeping even a single dot are bad.
 






The false leaders may try to tell you, "okay yeah you're right he was saying to keep the Law there, BUT"

And then they will share their invented story with you that what he said here was to keep the Law but he only meant for that year of his life left, up until he was sacrificed.

That is not a teaching from the Bible, it is purely made up by them, to help explain away the contradictions of their doctrines of men.


It is nonsense for them to say what he taught us, and his words, were only in effect for his 1 year ministry, and that afterward they too were done away with, along with the Word of YHWH!


The false teachers are twisting everything, and say so much of the words in the Bible are obsolete or passed away.

Notice the difference between what I share to you, and what they try to share to you, because the truth all fits together and does not have to ignore any part of itself and the Bible, their lies fall when put next to Bible verses, but the truth is reinforced.
 
Keep testing until you are able to see through the obvious lies.
 If a man tells you the words of YHWH or the words of Messiah are not to be obeyed, you should instantly know that you're dealing with a false teacher.







There is even more evidence to support the obvious meaning, we can look at the Greek word that was translated to "fulfill" and look at how this word is used to understand the meaning of the word better.

Modern teachers often will weakly try to convince you "fulfill" means to bring an end to, and not only does that definition not make sense, and doesn't fit to the context, but when we look at the Greek text that our versions come from, the text lights up brightly and shows us the context and definition.

Every time this specific Greek word is used in other places of the Gospels, it is about when a scripture and prophecy is being fulfilled.
 
The context is obvious if you're honest with yourself, and this knowledge backs it up as being the correct context and gives us a great idea of what he was talking about.


Here is the link to all of the occurrences of the Greek word that is translated to 'fulfill' and you can see all of the times it is used for yourself;
.http://www.blueletterbible.org/lang/lexicon/lexicon.cfm?strongs=G4137&t=KJV&page=1.






Modern Christianity is trying to present us with what seems like a totally different person, a false version.
 
The real Messiah states he came to fulfill the prophecies, and was himself the word of YHWH manifest.
 
The imposter version invented by the false teachers states he came to abolish the "Old Testament" and the Word of YHWH, and even to abolish his own words..
 
This is why you must be careful about following these men, you will have the wrong idea about the Messiah and you will not even really know him yet.
 
Go to him yourself personally and get to know him, don't just go on hear-say and misinformation fed to us from the satan.


Take the time to read and learn the Bible, instead of being lazy and allowing the world to just "help" you learn.

That is like you asking the satan to just tell you what the Bible says, so you don't have to be burdened by reading and thinking for yourself at all, and not be burdened with having to teach your family yourself.
 What do you think the satan would do with such an opportunity?





Continuing on, false teachers are also saying that when he said "until all happen", that he really meant until he was crucified and then the Law of his Father would be done away with..
 
Once again that would contradict the passage greatly, but in the context of the sentence it means until the heavens and the earth perish.


Know that it was the heavens and the earth that was called to be a witness against us concerning our keeping of the Law;

Deuteronomy 30:19 "I call the heavens and the earth to witness against you today, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and curse. Therefore choose life, that you and your offspring may live"


There is also a prophecy given to us that has not been fulfilled yet, and that is our heavens and earth will perish and then there will be a new heavens and a new earth, this has NOT happened yet!;

Revelation 21:1 "Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and the sea was no more"



Consider these together;

Deuteronomy 30:15 "See, I have set before you this day life and good, and death and evil, In that I command you this day to love YHWH your Elohim, to walk in his ways, and to keep his commandments and his statutes and his judgments, that you may live and multiply, and YHWH your Elohim shall bless you in the land where you go to possess it"

Deuteronomy 30:19 "I call the heavens and the earth to witness against you today, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and curse. Therefore choose life, that you and your offspring may live"

Matthew 5:17 "Do not think that I have come to do away with the Law or the prophets, I have not come to do away with, but to fulfill, for truly I say unto you, until the heavens and the earth perish, a single letter or a single dot will in no way perish from the Law until all happen. Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments and shall teach others to do the same, shall be called the least in the kingdom of the heavens, but whosoever shall do and teach them the same, shall be called great in the kingdom of the heavens"











Some modern teachers link him saying "all happen" to his first statement of him coming to "fulfill" and state that this meant the Law won't pass until he fulfills everything.

IF that was actually the case, it still wouldn't support their desire to be lawless, because the Messiah has not even finished fulfilling yet, and there is still much left to be fulfilled.
 Not a single dot of the Law has been loosed yet.


Relating to this specific claim, some are even translating the passage in a way to help it not so obviously contradict modern Christianity.

So again, let me remind you, do not blindly trust your supposed Bible translators with their many versions.

Do not take 1 mistranslated verse of theirs, and then ignore thousands of other scriptures that contradict the mistranslation.

While some translators have indeed done this, the passage still remains contradictory to the false teachings.

These that I speak of translate 2 completely different Greek words in the passage to the same word "fulfill".
 
This then can make you more likely to go along with the false assertion and miss what is really said here.

Here is a link to an interlinear Bible to see the words for yourself, and see these words are not related to each other, but are different;
.http://www.scripture4all.org/OnlineInterlinear/NTpdf/mat5.pdf
.













I will address 1 final error coming from this passage, modern Christians are often caught misquoting it, and making it sound like it says something it does not

They say that he states he came to fulfill the Law, but, if you read the scripture you notice that those were not his exact words.
 
He did not say that he came to fulfill the Law, he said that he came to fulfill.

If you read above, then you see the context points to him coming to fulfill the prophecies about him, and that also does include what was written about him in the Law, but when they misquote it they try to make it sound more like he meant something about ending the Law.

















So, do not obey men, obey Yahushua!;

Matthew 5:17 "Do not think that I have come to do away with the Law or the prophets"



He clearly told us to not think that he came to do away with the Law.
 If we obey this single instruction from him like we should, then we would have no choice but to drop denominations like modern Christianity and be free of their influence.

Modern Christianity is really just an impostor that has stolen the name "Christianity".


We don't have to analyze this any deeper, we can compare it to all of the other scriptures and words in the Bible to see how they line up and what is really being said.

Sin is breaking the Law, and we know the Messiah taught seriously about avoiding sin(which means breaking the law).

You're not going to find in the Bible that the Messiah spent all of his time teaching to stop following his Father, like modern teachers would have you believe.


Matthew 4:4 "But he answered, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone but by every word that comes from the mouth of YHWH"

Matthew 7:23 "And then will I say to them, I never knew you, depart from me you that work lawlessness"

Luke 11:27 "As he spoke these things, a certain woman from the crowd raised her voice and said to him, Blessed is the womb that bore you, and the breasts which nursed you!
But he said, yea rather, blessed are those who hear the word of Elohim and keep it!"

Matthew 7:26 "But everyone who hears these sayings of mine and does not do them, will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand, and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house, and it fell, and great was it's fall"
