“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” – Lord Jesus Christ (Matthew 5:18, NASB)
“Do not think that I came to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I did not come to abolish but to fulfill.” – Lord Jesus Christ (Matthew 5:17, NASB)
What is the Result of Christ’s Fulfillment of it?
Universal Salvation in Lord Jesus Christ Alone as both the Law Breakers and Law Keepers will eventually be IN His Kingdom:
“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.” – Lord Jesus Christ (Matthew 5:19, NASB)
P/S: Is it by our efforts?
“For I say to you that unless your righteousness surpasses that of the scribes and Pharisees, you will not enter the kingdom of heaven.” – Lord Jesus Christ (Matthew 5:20, NASB)
No. Then, how? The “Righteousness of God”.
The Verse above (together with the ones below) shows that ONLY Lord Jesus Christ EXCEEDED the Righteousness of the Scribes and Pharisees having PERFECT SCORE and thus Imputes HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS upon ALL eventually where “those who believe receive it first without afterlife Judgments” (e. g. John 5:24, Romans 3:26, 1 Timothy 2:4-KJV, 1 Timothy 4:10 too):
“Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin. But now the righteousness of God without the law is manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets;” – apostle Paul (Romans 3:20 – 21, KJV)
“Even the Righteousness of God which is by Faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference:” – apostle Paul (Romans 3:22, KJV)
P/S: Giving Thanks
Thus as priests of God (“believers”), we ought to Give thanks on behalf of this SALVATION of ALL MEN eventually before it comes to pass itself in FAITH:
“I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for ALL MEN;… Who will have ALL MEN to be SAVED, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth… Who gave Himself a RANSOM for ALL, to be TESTIFIED in due TIME(S). Whereunto I am ordained a preacher, and an apostle, (I speak the truth in Christ, and lie not;) a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and verity.” – apostle Paul (1 Timothy 2:1, 4, 6 – 7, KJV)
“We have seen and testify that the Father has sent the Son to be the Savior of the world.” – apostle John (1 John 4:14, NASB)
