Do not think that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I did not come to destroy but to fulfill. Matthew 5.17

Understanding the coming of Jesus fascinates us, for He fulfilled God’s plans to repair the damage left by Adam’s sin. The Master’s teaching in this verse and the next three are of fundamental importance for our spiritual well-being. We no longer have to submit to the strict precepts of the Law of Moses, but only enjoy the blessings promised to those who obey its requirements. As you understand the great work of Christ, take hold of what is yours!

Asaph understood that something was missing in order to become sovereign over the things that happened to him, and when writing about it, he summed it up in the following sentence, which, although short, reveals the way to become more than conquerors in Christ: When I take the appointed place, I will judge righteously (Psalm 75.2). This is exactly what Jesus came to teach; He did not annul or despise the Law, but succeeded in carrying it out!

Not a “jot” or a “tittle” was omitted from the Law without being fulfilled. In view of this, we can understand the revelation of the prophet Isaiah: Surely He has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows; yet we esteemed Him stricken, smitten by God, and afflicted. But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement for our peace was upon Him, and by His stripes we are healed (Isaiah 53:4,5). What a blessing!

The Christian needs to proceed within the Scriptures, studying them assiduously. Thus, he will enjoy the abundant life brought by the Savior (John 10.10). It is up to each one to be what the Bible declares: more than conquerors. But we must not say this in an impulse, as a truth, while our heart is full of sorrow and murmuring. Those who spend time reading the Word will know how to act in the moment of temptation or need (Mark 9.19).

On the Cross, before surrendering His spirit, Christ waited until He realized that the sin of men was upon Himself, and then, when no suffering was missing, He cried out: “It is finished!” And bowing His head, He gave up His spirit (John 19.30b). Nothing was left unfinished; our iniquities were upon the Lord, as well as our pains and infirmities. What is the reason to suffer what is no longer ours? Reject it!

The Most High will never deny you healing, because His Son bore the evils inherent in man. Furthermore, whoever despises a commandment, judging it to be inferior, will be called lesser in the Kingdom of Heaven, and whoever teaches it will be considered great: Whoever therefore breaks one of the least of these commandments, and teaches men so, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but whoever does and teaches them, he shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven (Matthew 5.19). Be alert!

Jesus declared: And whatever you ask in My name, that I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son (John 14.13). In the original Greek, the verb used was aiteo, which in some cases means to ask, but in this statement it could have been translated as: to demand, to claim, and to take possession of the blessing. When something is yours, you claim it, demand it, or take possession of it. Isn’t that, right? Believe!

In Christ, with love,

God, our Redeemer! It cost Your Son immeasurable suffering, to take our pains and our infirmities, our sins and our transgressions, and the punishment that brings us peace. So, we thank You for what He did in our place!

Christ has fulfilled the commandments and suffered our pains; now we need only believe and take possession of all that belongs to us. Before You, we come to receive the inheritance left by Jesus, salvation. We refuse any work of the devil; we are free!

It is sad to see brothers in sin, unaware that the devil can no longer make them servants. The same is true of sickness and other afflictions. Having been set free, we refuse the devil's offers. Yours is the glory. Amen!
