As long as heaven and earth shall last, the law will never be written away as past. Neither the least point to be considered obsolete, nor the smallest detail kept away in the backseat. Jesus did not come to do away with the law, or within the teachings of the prophets to find out flaws. But He came to make those teachings come true. This is how it is; let me now tell you. Because heaven and earth can come to pass, but His Word will forever last. Jesus came and fulfilled every prophecy, up until then, from Genesis, Isaiah, Jeremiah, Micah and Malachi. Even the controversial book of Leviticus, states the sin offering to be paid by us. Seven times the blood of the unblemished, sprinkled on the altar, so we may not perish. The Son of Man didn't change the law. Seven times His blood sprinkled on the altar. If born of Adam, in naked guilt hide from God. Or enter the new covenant in one accord. This new Adam of Melchizedek's order, tore the curtain down, so you may now enter. He didn't just change or eliminate the law. He keeps His Word; that's His only flaw. It's easier for a camel to pass through, the eye of a needle; because I tell you... You can follow the law and live in the old covenant, or choose unmerited grace form Christ, the benevolent. But in Jesus, the work of the Cross, through faith, in His salvific blood is released His grace. It is now for you to decide, the law or grace; do you want to stand or hide? Because, salvation is through Christ alone. He is the cornerstone. Not by good works or your own deeds, but indulgence in the blood of the Pascal feed. You must be perfect like your Father in heaven is. to fellowship with Him in euphoric bliss, follow the advocate, the priest who tore, that curtain divider, sprinkling His own blood, all sin He bore. -RUELHA www.ruelha.com (Inspired by Matthew 5:18) © Copyright Protected.

It is my desire to study the four gospels. Writing poems helps me put some thought into it thereby making it fun to learn and remember. I was stuck on the book of Matthew for years and never really completed more than the first five chapters until I began writing ‘the Matthew Series‘. Now, I’m revising the contents of the book of Mathew by writing another series of poems titled ‘Inspired by Matthew‘. This one will not be as comprehensive as ‘the Matthew Series’ and may not be in an orderly sequence. This particular poem is the 12th in the series. I recommend reading the actual Bible because it’s a whole lot better than my poems. I’d be overjoyed if anyone out there would like to be part of this experience and go through the book of Matthew with me. I hope you enjoy reading each piece as much as I did writing them.
