Jesus explained what it would mean to keep the least of the commandments, the tenth commandment was the least one. The first one, was the Greatest " thou shalt have no other gods before my face" The least/last one, was "you shall not covet". So, Jesus said "go sell everything and give it to the poor and come follow me". The rich man could not do it. The disciples said "if this is what we must do, who can be saved?" Jesus then explained, "It is IMMPOSSIBLE" He was saying it is impossible to keep the law. So, he continued, "But, with God all things ARE possible". By this he declared that the LAW was not able to save anyone, only God. Math 19:21.
So the LEAST of the commandments we MUST keep is impossible, as the tenth commadment was that LEAST, and he declared it impossible. ONLY by accepting JESUS can we KEEP his righteousness. We have NO righteousness of our own, ours are like filthy rags, our righteousness comes from Jesus, he cloths us with "HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS" and that is why God created us nacked. If we would have needed our OWN righteousness we would have been born with cloths (with righteousness). However, we were born as God intended, to recieve the righteousness of Christ, not by WORKS, but, by GRACE, and through FAITH.
When Jesus said we must keep the least of the commandments, he was expressing the need we have for his salvation. Not for the need to be under laws. Why did Jesus eat and drink with harlots and tax collectors while snubing pharasees, (people who believed in a strict keeping of laws and stoning women who comit adultery) The answer is, because he LOVED all people and he came to love us all. period.
You will demand this law and find yourself as the pharasee in the end, having the greater SIN. The greater sin is the lack of compassion, the hypocracy, and the stuburnness. if you will want to be saved be like the harlot women washing Jesus feet, and accept your free gift with joy. Not like the Pharasee who demanded others keep the law.
Also, Do not be like the hypocrit Pharasee in Jesus Parable who said " Luke 18:12. "The Pharisee stood and was praying this to himself: 'God, I thank You that I am not like other people: swindlers, unjust, adulterers, or even like this tax collector. I fast twice a week; I pay tithes of all that I get. But the tax collector, standing some distance away, was even unwilling to lift up his eyes to heaven, but was beating his breast, saying, 'God, be merciful to me"
Finnaly, do not be like the Parable of the Wicked servant who went off and began to "BEAT his fellow servants and become a drunkard " The servant meant a servant of the new covenant, a Christian, a servant of Jesus. The beating meant keeping the demands of the law, and the drunkeness meant to go back to drinking the OLD WINE, or the law of Moses. Jesus gave us NEW WINE to drink. It is the NEW covenant, the covenant he gave us was LOVE. To "do unto others as you would have them do unto you". Math 24:49
I hope this help you understand friend. David Vose
