December 25, 2017 – Matthew 5:18

For truly I say to you, Till heaven and earth pass, one stroke or one pronunciation mark shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.

– Matthew 5:18

Thoughts on Today’s Verse…

One stroke is the smallest letter in the Hebrew alphabet and one pronunciation mark is a pen stroke that can differentiate one Hebrew letter from another. This expression means a tiny amount of something insignificant. The Lord Jesus said that even if heaven and earth passed, one stroke or one pronunciation mark would in no wise pass from the law and all would be fulfilled. We can see from those words that in every stage of God’s work, every law He made is meaningful and valuable and represents God’s disposition and authority. As God’s word goes, “God’s authority is everywhere, at every hour, at every instant. If heaven and earth were to pass away, His authority would never pass away, for He is God Himself, He possesses the unique authority, and His authority is not restricted or limited by people, events, or things, by space or by geography” (“God Himself, the Unique III”). The laws God made represent His work in the Age of Law and they even more represent God’s disposition and authority in the Age of Law. Being above all material and nonmaterial things, they are not restrained by any force, people, event, or thing.
