PostSubject: All Things Fulfilled   Fri Jun 08, 2012 2:46 pm

The Bible tells us that not one part of the law would go away unless all things are fulfilled.

It seems everyone that calls themselves "Christian" believes we are no longer under the Mosaic law, that through the cross of Christ, that law came to an end. And they are right. But, doesn't that mean that all things are fulfilled in the cross of Christ. That's what I believe. The cross of Christ put an end to the Old Covenant, and enacted the New Covenant.

Hebrews 9.16-17 tells us where there is a testament it is necessary for men to die. That idea hasn't changed for thousands of years. Those of us of means would be wise to see a lawyer about documenting their "Last Will And Testament." Well, Jesus had a Last Will and Testament, and when he died, his will and testament came into force. And for forty years after the cross his will and testament was being established on earth. In 70 AD, that process came to a culmination, thus all things have been fulfilled. The law, the prophets, the wisdom, the knowledge and understanding of the Old Covenant all was complete by the cross of Christ.

Hebrews tells of a transition from the Old to the New. The end of the transition occurred in 70 AD when the temple was destroyed. Thus, all things were fulfilled. To suggest that the coming of Christ had not happened immediately following those days, and is yet future, is to suggest that all things have not been fulfilled and that we are still under the law. Remember, Jesus said that not one part of the law, not even the smallest punctuation mark of the law would pass until all is fulfilled. You can't have it both ways. You can't say we are no longer under the law, while holding out for a future coming of Christ. Jesus said that "ALL" had to be fulfilled for the law to pass away.

The position that all things have been fulfilled and the law passed away is consistent with Scripture. The position that the law has passed away, while some prophecies have not been fulfilled is not consistent with Scripture. I feel sorry for those who, for whatever reason, can't see that.

Christianity is completely and 100% fulfilled in Christ.
