John 19:30 (KJV)
The Mosaic Law 'officially' ENDED at the Cross of
Christ - Yeshua Jesus.
30 When Jesus therefore had
received the vinegar, he said,
It is finished:
and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost.
14 Blotting out the handwriting of
ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of
the way, nailing it to his cross;
Mosaic LAW and the Temple Sacrificial System by its very definition and design
was to ‘officially’ have an END.
Galatians 3:19 (KJV)
19 Wherefore then serveth
It was added because of transgressions,
the seed should come to whom the promise was made;
ordained by angels in the hand of a mediator.
Law was ADDED because of the transgressions of Sin, however it was to end
with the PROMISED SEED - Yeshua Jesus.
word ‘achris’ (G891) used above in Gal. 3:19 literally means UNTIL.
Sacrifice (the Temple System – Mosaic Law) OFFICIALLY came to an END at the
Cross, when Yeshua Jesus made the FINAL PERFECT Sacrifice, and became the
ETERNAL High Priest after the order of Melchisedec, subsequent to the Oath
Hebrews 6:20 (KJV)
20 Whither the forerunner is
for us entered, even Jesus, made an high priest
the order of Melchisedec.
Colossians 2:14 (KJV)
14 Blotting out the handwriting
of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out
of the way,
nailing it to his cross;
Hebrews 9:25-28 (KJV)
25 Nor yet that he should offer
himself often, as the high priest entereth into the holy place every year
with blood of others;
26 For then must he often have
suffered since the foundation of the world:
but now once in the end of the world hath he appeared to put away sin by the
sacrifice of himself.
27 And as it is appointed unto
men once to die, but after this the judgment:
So Christ was
to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear
the second time without sin unto salvation.
Jewish Temple still stood for nearly some 40 years later, before its
destruction, by God’s instrument of destruction – Titus Caesar in 70 A.D.
Nonetheless, at the Cross God by His own very OATH brought the Levitical
Priesthood to an official end. Without an acceptable and legitimate Priest
from the Tribe of Levi the Temple System was done. Yeshua was NOW YHWH’s
High Priest by OATH.
Hebrews 7:21 (KJV)
21 (For those priests were made
without an oath; but this with an oath by him that said unto him, The
Lord sware and will not repent, Thou art a priest for ever after the
order of Melchisedec:)
Hebrews 8:13 (KJV)
13 In that he saith,
A new covenant, he hath made the first old.
Now that which decayeth and waxeth old is ready to vanish away.
