God’s provision has continued through all the ages for man through everything spoken to mankind which has always been Torah that would form us into His image. God doesn’t need anyone to serve him, but he grants eternal life who does so out of their free will. God doesn’t need anything from us, He has communion with humans for their benefit, not his. He gave the Torah to teach us who are prone to idol worship to serve God. The idols are the things of the letter, the carnal, the temporal, however we are to serve Him by making our focus on the eternal and spirit realm that is in His Word.
The meaning to “fulfill the law” is thus explained as not doing away with it but exceeding its very nature to a higher level than what the Pharisees were walking out. The Heretic Marcion taught that Yahushua came to do away with the law, which was a grievous error that robs saints of immortality. The natural law (or the letter) were for the slaves, but out of our own free will we become friends of Yahweh by wanting to walk what Yahushua taught, which was to walk out a higher level of obedience out of our love for Yahweh of his commandments.
Here is a history of how the apostles carried out the order in the church the way Christ had given the order to the Apostles and the Apostles passed it down to the next line of Apostles.

This person was “carried away in the spirit” and flying in the heavens and had been worked up into an ecstasy and started to prophesy things that were contrary to the Word of Yah and the way the Church operated. There were some people in the church who had discernment, by knowing the Word, rebuked them and knew they were operating under the power of demons. Others who were not rooted in the Word, tried to approach this person to correct them, but because they were not rooted in the Word, were overcome by that false prophet.
Elijah is a key figure in the Book of Revelations. The Early Church understood how important his role would be in preparing the church before the times of the Antichrist. Elijah would be the one to restore the church to be able to endure the persecution. Elijah is understood to be the angel (messenger) ascending from the East bearing the seal of God. He’s come to seal the church.
This is the list of many Bishops that were ordained by the Apostles. This was the beginning of the apostolic succession, the beginning of the next line of Apostles.
