The next Scripture about the Law we come to which is twisted and misunderstood is ROMANS 10:4:
For Messiah is the end of the Law for righteousness to everyone that believeth.
A quick study of the word ‘end’ will show us the correct meaning of this Scripture. The Book of Yahweh renders it thus:
For Yahshua is the ultimate result of keeping the Law unto righteousness for everyone who believes.
The New American Standard Bible’s version is:
For Christ is the end (literally: goal) of the Law for righteousness to everyone who believes.
Spiros Zodhiates, Th. D, the editor of the Hebrew/Greek Key Study Bible NASB, in the ‘Lexical Aids to the New Testament’ has this (and much more) to say about the word ‘end’, Strong’s Greek word #5056:
Telos: neut, usually with to, the definite art. end, goal. The limit, either at which a person or thing ceases to be what he or it was up to that point or at which previous activities ceased (II COR. 3:13, I PET. 4:7). It does not, as is commonly supposed, mean the extinction, end, termination with reference to time, but the goal reached, the completion or conclusion at which anything arrives.
Paul goes on to write in ROMANS 10:5 that he who perfectly keeps the Law in every point, may alone claim life and salvation through it. Of course only Yahshua our Messiah and Saviour has done so. Then Paul quotes from DEUTERONOMY 30:11-14 saying the Law is in our very mouth and heart and we can perfectly fulfill it as Yahshua did if we believe and confess Him having done so. His righteousness becomes ours through our faith in Him. We don’t even have to ascend into Heaven and bring Messiah down, or descend into the grave to bring Messiah up from the dead (as if we could!). It has been done! Finished! How simple. How profound.
