These things were said to “fulfil the scriptures”

Mat 21:4 This took place to fulfill what was spoken through the prophet.

One of the greatest things relating to the bible is prophecy spoken in the old testament fulfilled in the new testament.
Before I go any further into the meaning of the word “fulfil” I’ll like to say that a testament is a will or an agreement which doesn’t take effect till the author of the agreement pass away, by death. Death gives life to the will of the testament and the distribution of his or her goods to family or friends as it is written.

The death of Jesus fulfilled what we couldn’t fulfil as the law required from us what we didn’t even possess, so jesus fulfilled the righteous requirement of the law through deathRom 8:3-4

So what does the word fulfil mean?

plēroō To render full, i.e. to complete…
a) to fill to the top
b) to consummate
c) to make complete in every particular, to render perfect

Now it all make sense when Jesus said “its finished” because he fulfilled every prophecy relating to his first coming.
Now men & women, Hebrew and gentile have the access by one spirit to the eternal father.

We in christ has been set free from ceremonial law as Christ is the lamb that takes away the sins of the world

Also christ has fulfilled the moral law
through the spirit so we can live free by the power of love which is the fulfilment of the law.Rom 13:8

Some times I think why it’s so hard to walk in Love and often it’s because we chose to continue walking according to the law. The law can’t empower you to love or forgive, it’s there to show you your inadequate but love is the realm of all Godly possibilities…

When I see critical people i see a reflection of the nature of the law, fault finding..lol
The next time you see a genuine person full of love, ask yourself a question what qualities did they possess and how did they make you feel?

Rom 8:1 Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus,

In conclution

Jesus didn’t come to abolish or destroy
The law and the prophets but to complete each requirement, statement which pleased the father so we can live by faith in the abundance of Gods amazing GRACE!!

Mat 13:35 So was fulfilled what was spoken through the prophet: “I will open my mouth in parables, I will utter things hidden since the creation of the world.”
