The Fulfillment of the Law

by Everett Ramsay, DD

From the book:  Commentary of the New Testament

Matthew 5:17-20

“Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets:  I am not come to destroy. For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.  Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven:  but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.  For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven.” 

Jesus Christ made it plain that He did not come to alter or eliminate the law.  He came to fulfill the law, especially that which is related to the covenant of Abraham.  The ceremonial law was not removed or done away.  It was fulfilled in Christ.  The law is still there.

Scripture Reading: Revelation 20:1-9

The first fourteen verses of the 26th Chapter of Isaiah Sets forth the triumph of the Kingdom and the destruction of the enemies of the Kingdom. In the 13th and 14th verses Isaiah referred to lords who had ruled over God's people in the past, stating in the 14th verse that they were now deceased that they would never live again. We say that the expression, '''they are deceased,'' is ''they are Rephaim. '' Attention was called to the fact that Rephaim referred to shades, fearful ones! Ghosts etc.

Thus the Rephaim were the disembodied spirits of the offspring of the angels who begat children by taking the daughters of men for wives. As a result of these forbidden marriages, we found that added to the sensual and carnal- the result of the temptation and fall-was now added highly-increased discernment and understanding but wholly devoid of spiritual direction. This enhanced the violent and power of those who exercised control over the population, the lords who ruled over them.
