"The Word…Never to Pass Away"

“The Word...Never to Pass Away”

Blessings folk!

Today’s reading:

Matthew 11:12-13
Luke 16:16-17

Some clear, important teachings here.

The Law and the Prophets were proclaimed until John (the Baptist).
John and Jesus proclaimed the Kingdom of God.

People were trying to force their way into the Kingdom.
People had no concept of what the Kingdom was.
They were searching for a political resolution to the issues of the day.
Such is the same today.

We see that the Law does not pass away.

The Law is fulfilled/manifest/experienced/etc. in the Lord Jesus.

Jesus tells us that heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will never pass away.

We must know the Word of the Lord all of it.

Far too many of the professing church gives heed to only a limited portion of the Word, usually just the New Testament.

One cannot understand the New Testament without the Old Testament.
Nor can one understand the Old Testament without the New Testament.

Give heed to the Word of the Lord.
The Law.
The Prophets.
The Writings.
The New.
