And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men;
Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ.
For the Law was given through Moses; grace and truth were realized through Jesus Christ.

Paul, the apostle, is perhaps the most celebrated Christian apostle – and for good reason. No other apostle brought us truth and revelation like Paul.
But what was Paul's secret?
Thankfully, we don't have to guess; Paul made it abundantly clear:
_"Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before" (Philippians 3:13)._
The first secret of Paul was to always forget those things that are behind, whether failures or accomplishments.
Of course, God is not expecting you to get amnesia, but remembering and meditating on something is a choice. Choose to not dwell on past happenings. Instead, here's what you should do:
_"I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus" (Philippians 3:14)._
Press towards the goal. The word "press" or "press on" refers to running swiftly to reach a target. It speaks of runners and racers.
_Are you forgetting the things behind you? Are you pressing on for the things before you?_
Further Studies: Luke 9:62; Proverbs 4:25; Isaiah 43:18-19.

“Don’t misunderstand why I have come. I did not come to abolish the law of Moses or the writings of the prophets. No, I came to accomplish their purpose. I tell you the truth, until heaven and earth disappear, not even the smallest detail of God’s law will disappear until its purpose is achieved.” Matthew 5:17-18NLT
1991and 1992, I was privileged to study Genesis through Deuteronomy— the Torah— with a Bible scholar. My teacher spent five years of her college study, learning the minutest details of every law written for the Israelites. The totality, of what she taught, can be summed up in the five following statements.
1. Law’s purpose was to show mankind, they had no ability to keep the Law or reach God on their own.
2. God is unapproachably vast, and holy.
3. God yearns for a intimate relationship with us.
4. God left only breathing and praising Him outside of sin’s realm.
5. God always requires a blood sacrifice.
We are left undone, without a way to approach this fearsome awesome God. God’s desire has always been to be approachable; to create THE WAY for us to enter His Presence. Isaiah 1:18KJV assures us “…saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.”
Jesus presented to mankind a living model— fulfilling the Law. Trouble was: this life was livable only by the God/Man/Savior. He set before us standards which required decisions of love with consistent godly desire, mercy, purity, and right living relationships with others. “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, For they shall be filled. Blessed are the merciful, For they shall obtain mercy. Blessed are the pure in heart,
For they shall see God. Blessed are the peacemakers, For they shall be called sons of God.” Matthew 5:6-9NKJV The heart for God’s ways will be fulfilled by Holy Spirit living in us. The personhood of Jesus accomplishes His own standards through submitted, surrendered bodies.
Most holy, perfect God didn’t want us left undone. He wanted to live our daily lives with us. Detailing through prophets across generations the redemption plan for LOVE, Jesus’ death on the cross made God approachable, reachable, see Matthew 27:51. Jesus’ death fulfilled every requirement of the Law, while paying the total price of every sin. How crazy is that? Accepting Him as Lord makes us holy. Yes, you and me become holy through Christ. 2Corinthians 5:21NASB “He made Him who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.” The purpose of the Law showed we couldn’t live righteous, only He could! Then, Jesus— Love —fulfilled the Law for us.
Christ asks us to allow Him to live out His law of love through us. “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength… Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these… more important than all burnt offerings and sacrifices.” Mark 12:31-33NIV. Loving lying politicians, hate groups, cancel culture, the LGBT who try to force us to accept their sins as normal are all problems for me and my ability to love. I fight with me to love the person— hate the sin. This can only be lived out by Holy Spirit in me.
Our text says, “not even the smallest detail of God’s law will disappear until its purpose is achieved.” Will you allow Jesus to fulfill the Law and love through you? It’s your choice. You choose.
PRAYER: Father Your plan to fulfill the Law through Jesus and love is amazing! I surrender to You. Let it become a part of me, in Jesus’ name.

Forget the modern Life!
Oppression drives the masses into
In the perceptions of what is normal..
Son of a bitch! Baphomet, Beelzebub, Lucifer,
All of the above, leading the masses, silently into destruction.
Dead weight on society.
rest your soul, away from the modern Life, accept the heartbreak and strife
Turn around, Walk against the crowd
Percived as the enemy, take a unpopular approach, stand strong and loud.
Oh God, were going now!
the power to oppose
Hold on tight
Doing what's right
The power to denie
Stay strong, against..
what the world views as right
Another modern Life, deadbeats praised as what's "right" a generic brainless waste, a living hell at hast
Whoa man Go!...
If this is real let me see some pain!
If this is real let me cease and decrease!
And to the architect. And the ones that hold the light..
I'll smash you're walls and tear down your blocks
stand strong, to the ones that oppose
We will bruise our heal well crushing his face!
My God will crush your skull
And I'll take pride in it, when I watch you fall!
Your fate has already been resolved
And at the end, we will stand strong
only death is up to God..
death is up to God..
And Only death is up to God..
Death is up to God
So what now?
Whoa man go!..
