Matthew (Program #19) – The Decree of the Kingdom’s Constitution (7)

In the Old Testament law it was unlawful for a man to commit murder or to commit adultery.   But in the gospel of Matthew, in the New Testament even to hate someone or just to look upon someone with lust is to fall short of the standard of the kingdom of the heavens.

Matthew (Program #18) – The Decree of the Kingdom’s Constitution (6)

Matthew 5:17 says “Do not think that I have come to abolish the law or the prophets; I have not come to abolish, but to fulfill.”  Yet in other places in the New Testament we are told that the law has been done away with.   This has made the subject of the law a subject of great controversy and debate on Christians for hundreds of years.  In the Old Testament it was clear that God dealt with His people through the principle of the law.  But in the New Testament that principle has been replaced by the principle of faith.  So does that mean that the believers now has no obligations to conduct themselves according to the high standard of Scriptures?

Matthew (Program #17) – The Decree of the Kingdom’s Constitution (5)

The teaching and preaching in the gospel of Matthew concerning the kingdom begins with repentance; “Repent for the kingdom of the heavens is drawn near”.  To repent is to have a complete change of mind.  After dealing with our mind however, the kingdom then becomes a matter of our spirit; “blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of the heavens” and finally “blessed are the pure in heart”.

Matthew (Program #16) – The Decree of the Kingdom’s Constitution (4)

We’ve often heard a person described as the salt of the earth.  It’s become a very common term use to describe someone of solid and dependable character.  Actually this term comes from the New Testament gospel of Matthew and it along with it’s companion verse “you are the light of the world” are used specifically to describe not just people of character but actually those people who are fit to inhabit the kingdom of the heavens.
