Inauguration of the New Covenant

It has been pointed out that there are many parallels between the Law and the New Covenants. These extend to some particulars connected with the inaugurations of both. The first item of the Law was the Passover. The first item of the New Covenant is the antitype of this — “Christ, our Passover is sacrificed […]

New Covenant Terms Applicable to the Ancients

Before the New Covenant had been ratified by the death of Jesus, its terms were made applicable to those who had faith. If we do not take this view of God’s dealings with the Ancients, we practically assert that God has two arrangements for the forgiveness of sins, one through faith in Christ, applicable since […]

The New Covenant in the Gospel and Kingdom Ages

That the New Covenant is applied to the Church of the Gospel age, and will also be applied to the people in the Kingdom age, is perfectly plain from a consideration of the specifications of the New Covenant as referred to in various Scriptures. “I will put my laws into their mind, and write them […]

The New Covenant with Israel

In the previous chapters we looked at the change from Old to New covenant and the Seed which was already spoken of in the Garden of Eden. We saw that God made a covenant with David, so that we could have “the sure mercies of David” (Psalm 89: 20-37; Isa. 55: 3 ; Acts 13: […]

The Application of the New Covenant

To what purpose and to whom does the New Covenant apply? The New Covenant was instituted to supersede the Law Covenant (Heb. 8: 7, 8), for the purpose of accomplishing what the Law could not do on account of weakness of the flesh. (Rom. 8: 1-4.) Bearing in mind that the purpose of the Law […]

New Covenant Possesses

Three conditions have to be dealt with if the Abrahamic Covenant or promise is to bring a permanent blessing to “all the families of the earth.” These are the “sins of the past” both of Jews under the Old Covenant and of Gentiles under no covenant; sins committed, whether through weakness or wilfulness, after the […]

The New Covenant Intercessor

After mediating the Law Covenant, Moses did not leave the people to their own devices, but was still interested in them. So much was he devoted to them that, he became mediator in the sense of reconciler or intercessor with God on their behalf. The first occasion for this came soon after the covenant had […]

The New Covenant Victim and Mediator

The New Covenant Victim It was customary to ratify covenants over a victim. The covenant with Abraham, concerning his seed, and the possession of the land, was so ratified. (Gen. 15:8-18.) The Law Covenant was similarly ratified. (Ex. 24: 5-8.) The New Covenant must also be attested by the death of a victim, and it […]

The Covenants – Summary

“Now, of the things which we have spoken, this is the sum.” It has been seen that salvation from sin and death, the prime necessity of our race, has been provided in the divine purpose. Pursuant to the accomplishment of His purpose, God covenanted with Abraham that the blessing to all the families of the […]

The Everlasting Covenant

Several of the Covenants which God made are styled “everlasting.” Not that they all are to be considered endless, but rather uninterrupted or perpetual until such time as may have been appointed for them to expire. The Covenant with Noah (Gen. 9: 9-17), that of the Law (Ex. 31: 16; Lev. 24: 7-9; Num. 18: […]

The Law Covenant 3 Better Promises

The Law Covenant called for strict compliance with the letter of commandments that were external to the people, and contrary to their constitutional tendencies. The better promise and provision of the New Covenant is that the law of God is to be written on the hearts and minds of its beneficiaries, so that, eventually, it […]

The Law Covenant 2 Weak through the flesh

For sixteen centuries the Jews were allowed to try to prove their ability to keep the Law and gain the reward of life and glory. Sad experience proved to some few of them their inability and the fact that the Law ordained unto life was really a ministration of condemnation to them, and could, never […]

The Law Covenant 1 Messenger and Mediator Moses

In the previous article you could read that some arrangements had to be made, so that the promise to Abraham might become effective . It is at that point where enters the Law Covenant, proposing to prepare the ”Seed” for the great work. That this was one of the purposes of the Law Covenant is […]

Covenants

A Covenant is an agreement or compact entered into by two or more persons.

Verscheidene Verbondakkoorden 9 Op het hart geschreven

Het Nieuwe Verbond waar de huidige mens kan onder vallen, zorgt voor een doeltreffend verzoenend offer, dat niet alleen de Joden verlost heeft, die onder de vloek van de wet zijn, maar die ook een verzoening brengt voor de zonden van de hele wereld.  De Nazareense leermeester doordat hij de dood had ondergaan aan de […]
