Worship: For Heaven’s Sake In Matthew 5:17 and 18, Jesus said, “Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill. For verily I say unto you, til heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.” (Read more below.)

Words of Encouragement
Proverbs 3:5-6 Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
Proverbs 3:7-8 Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the Lord, and depart from evil. It shall be health to thy navel, and marrow to thy bones.

Pastor Flemons shared a bit of a detailed study of the meaning of the word fulfill in the New Testament. A more detailed study appears in Chapter 3 of How Christ Fulfilled the Law. Philippians 2:2; Colossians 1:25 and 4:17; and 2 Thessalonians 1:11 also use the same Greek word as is used in Matthew 5:17.
Fulfill, in no way, means to stop doing something or to cancel out anything. Neither does it mean to lessen one’s obligation to a principle, although people have often applied this as a definition of the word so that they don’t have to keep certain laws of God as revealed in the Bible. The word means the very opposite of how it is often understood. It means to keep doing or continue obeying the principle.
It is abundantly clear that Jesus was not changing anything in His Ten Commandment law or lessening its obligation in any way. “Rather, as our perfect example, He fulfilled the law.” And He demonstrated that in His strength, we can fulfill it as well.
(For further details, read Chapter 3, “‘Fulfill’ in the New Testament,” in the book, How Christ Fulfilled the Law, by Pastor Shelem Flemons.)
For Health’s Sake…
How long should lemon juice drops in the eyes be done? Taking lemon drops in the eyes once or twice a day won’t hurt. There are no side effects, besides the momentary burning sensation upon entry. For that, immediately press a cold moist cloth against the closed eye. Massage the eye a bit. This helps greatly in minimizing the burning sensation. The drops may be used until the problem is resolved.
What about castor oil on the eyelids for cataracts? Pastor Flemons has no personal experience with castor oil on the eyelids. He uses flaxseed oil, which lowers the eye pressure. It is also very good to take internally. However, another faithful listener, Annette, confirms successful use of organic castor oil in a dark bottle. She uses it on the eyelids and in the eyes and has found it to be very soothing and beneficial. Annette also used lemon juice and manuka honey for her cataracts. They went from “bad” to “mild,” she says in the morning’s FB post. Besides that, she says she no longer has dry eyes.
