Our LORD JESUS / Y’SHU+ spoke clearly and plainly about His+ Mission. After His+ great trial of temptation by the devil in chapter 4 of Matthew, HE+ emerged victoriously to establish the Kingdom of GOD on earth.
Leaving Nazareth, HE+ moved beside the Sea of Galilee, to Capernaum in the districts of Zebulan and Naphtali ( Mt. 4:13-17), thus FULFILLING Isaiah 9:1-2.
the dimness shall not be
such as was in her vexation,
when at the first
HE lightly afflicted
the land of Zebulun
and the land of Naphtali,
did more grievously afflict her
by the way of the sea,
in Galilee of the nations.
The people that walked in darkness
have seen a Great LIGHT+:
they that dwell in the land of the shadow of death,
upon them hath The LIGHT+ shined.
Isaiah 9: 1-2
The LORD JESUS / Y’SHU+ the M’SHIKHA+ preached repentance and called His+ first disciples to Him+ .
HE+ healed the sick and great crowds from the surrounding areas flocked to HIM+. HE began teaching them in the Sermon on the Mount, chapter 5.
that I+ am come
to destroy The Law,
or the Prophets:
I+ am not come
BUT TO FULFILL.
The LORD honored The LAW.
HE+ spoke often of its abuses and mis-applications by men, but The Law itself HE+ honored. It revealed His+ own Divine Character and the character of His+ Heavenly FATHER. HE+ was in agreement with it.
The LORD JESUS /
Y’SHU+ the M’SHIKHA+
The Law !
As the MESSIAH / M’SHIKHA, HE+ explained how the keeping of The Law was to GO DEEPER than the Jews’ observance of it.
The Law was to be kept in the MOTIVES and inside the hidden places of the heart, where no-one could see … except GOD.
HE+ explained this when teaching about lusting after another was ALREADY an act of adultery in the eyes of GOD.
GOD’S standard of right vs wrong did not CHANGE at the advent of CHRIST / the M’SHIKHA+.
The LORD JESUS
/ Y’SHU+ the M’SHIKHA+
to restore GOD’S Law
… in Spirit, this time,
and in Truth.

Let us pray:
Dear Heavenly FATHER,
Hallowed be Thy Name, O HOLY FATHER, and the Name of Thy HOLY SON+ , The LORD JESUS /
Y’SHU+ the M’SHIKHA+.
I thank THEE+ for Thy Law, for giving forth the Divine Standard of Right, for teaching me what is wrong,
and that Thy Standard does not change.
I confess , O LORD, that I am ashamed for the times I have hid sins in my heart,
thinking no-one could see me.
Please forgive me and cleanse me by the BLOOD of Thy Precious SON+.
