SORT BY Relevancy
What does the term "new" means in the theological context surrounding the person of Christ and his covenant with mankind? Let's talk about it.
Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah.
Not like the covenant I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to lead them out of Egypt; because they broke my covenant although I was a husband to them, saith the Lord.
But this is the covenant I will make with the house of Israel after those days, saith the Lord: I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their heart; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.
And they shall teach no more every man his neighbor, and every man his brother, saying, Know the Lord; they shall all know me, from the least to the greatest of them, saith the Lord; I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin.
Jeremiah 31: 31-34
Eis que dias vêm, diz o Senhor, em que farei uma aliança nova com a casa de Israel e com a casa de Judá.
Não conforme a aliança que fiz com seus pais, no dia em que os tomei pela mão, para os tirar da terra do Egito; porque eles invalidaram a minha aliança apesar de eu os haver desposado, diz o Senhor.
Mas esta é a aliança que farei com a casa de Israel depois daqueles dias, diz o Senhor: Porei a minha lei no seu interior, e a escreverei no seu coração; e eu serei o seu Deus e eles serão o meu povo.
E não ensinará mais cada um a seu próximo, nem cada um a seu irmão, dizendo: Conhecei ao Senhor; porque todos me conhecerão, desde o menor até ao maior deles, diz o Senhor; porque lhes perdoarei a sua maldade, e nunca mais me lembrarei dos seus pecados. Jeremias 31:31-34
The old covenant was like a marriage covenant. These days we include the phrase “till death do us part” in wedding ceremonies; it was the same thought in Paul’s day as well. The idea was that if either the husband or wife died, the remaining spouse was free to re-marry. Death ended the contract, or covenant, leaving the door open for either entering into a new contract or none at all, remaining free from contractual obligations.
In Adam, we are all born “married” to the law. The law is still in effect for those born into it. So someone in the marriage covenant has to die in order for the new relationship to be instituted. How did God handle this? Since the law was still in effect, and someone in the relationship had to die, God killed US!
In the spiritual realm, where eternity supersedes time, God takes us out of the time zone that we live in today, places us back onto the body of Jesus Christ as He is being crucified, and we die with Him, are buried with Him, and resurrected with Him as He is resurrected.
The Example of Lazarus
Imagine yourself standing outside the tomb, and Jesus has just arrived. Lazarus has been dead for 3 days now, and “he stinketh.” Lazarus died of something; for the sake of our illustration let’s say it was pneumonia. It could have been he had had an accident and had broken his neck, or any of a number of things. But for now, let’s say he died of pneumonia, and has been entombed. What does Jesus have to do in order to raise Lazarus from the dead? Actually there are two things: He has to restore his physical life and heal what caused his death.
Time On Our Hands?
There are really only two things we can give to God: Time and Attention. It is because our time and attention are so valuable to God that they are also the battleground where we fight the world, the flesh and the devil.

We are going to attempt to prepare for the Lenten season now. 2016 will be the best year for us why? Because will will gain a deeper understanding of what the Father did for us through His Son Jesus to keep us free indeed. We are continuing to look at why God's people need to gain the deeper aspect of of the scripture that says "What the Son sets free is free indeed."
Hebrews 8:11, 13 None of them shall teach his neighbor, and none his brother, saying, ‘Know the Lord,’ for all shall know Me, from the least of them to the greatest of them. In that He says, “A new covenant,” He has made the first obsolete. Now what is becoming obsolete and growing old is ready to vanish away.
Old Covenant: If the letter of the law was obeyed, a person could worship God through an earth-based tabernacle.
Hebrews 9:13 (KJV) For if the blood of bulls and of goats, and the ashes of an heifer sprinkling the unclean, sanctifieth to the purifying of the flesh:
Galatians 3:12 (KJV) And the law is not of faith: but, The man that doeth them shall live in them.
Leviticus 18:5 (KJV) Ye shall therefore keep my statutes, and my judgments: which if a man do, he shall live in them: I am the Lord.
2 Corinthians 3:16 (KJV) Nevertheless when it shall turn to the Lord, the vail shall be taken away.
New Covenant: Those who obey spiritually have one-on-one acess to worship God through Christ Jesus.
John 4:23-24 (KJV) But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.
Matthew 9:14-17 (KJV) Then came to him the disciples of John, saying, Why do we and the Pharisees fast oft, but thy disciples fast not? And Jesus said unto them, Can the children of the bridechamber mourn, as long as the bridegroom is with them? but the days will come, when the bridegroom shall be taken from them, and then shall they fast. No man putteth a piece of new cloth unto an old garment, for that which is put in to fill it up taketh from the garment, and the rent is made worse. Neither do men put new wine into old bottles: else the bottles break, and the wine runneth out, and the bottles perish: but they put new wine into new bottles, and both are preserved.
The homosexual and lesbian wicked spirit has infiltrated the world and the church and so called pastors are running away shaking in their boots . Why are so called Christians violating the sacred covenant based on holiness and obedience? How can churches support same sex marriage? Join the True Light and be blessed.

Through the Crucifixion, Jesus paid the debt once and for all. He removed all barriers through paying for all sins; at the Resurrection He became the Way to the Father, fulfilling His purpose on the earth and establishing a new covenant. It’s very important to note that the New Covenant begins at the Resurrection. Most of what is written in the Gospels and what Christ Himself taught was in fulfillment of the Old Covenant, the law. Before the New Covenant, His Testament, could be initiated, the old had to be satisfied. VICTORY OVER SIN came at the Crucifixion, but it wasn’t until the Resurrection that we gained VICTORY OVER SELF! Because of the New Testament, Jesus testifying that we are now in Him, we can boldly come before the very throne of God. We are now under grace, with nothing to achieve, prove or keep, which means that our success is measured by how much we let Christ live through us, not how much we do for Him.
The Example of Lazarus
Lazarus died of something; for the sake of our illustration let’s say it was pneumonia, and has been entombed. What does Jesus have to do in order to raise Lazarus from the dead? Actually there are two things: He has to restore his life (get his heart beating and his brain functioning again, etc.) and heal what caused his death. If Jesus only restored his life, Lazarus would still have pneumonia, and would simply die again. And if Jesus only healed the pneumonia, Lazarus would be nothing more than a pneumonia-free corpse. So Jesus did both. He removed what caused Lazarus’s death, he removed the pneumonia, and gave him life, got his heart pumping again. He does the same for us: at His Crucifixion Jesus removed what causes us death — our inherited sin nature; at His Resurrection He gave us new life, His own.

Do you believe a gospel that makes the New Covenant a fulfillment of the Old Covenant rather than an ending of it for those who believe? Have you substituted the fulfillment of the New Covenant via love for a substitutionary fulfillment of the covenant of death? This is what sets the covenant of promise apart from all other gospels. If you are a true Christian, you don’t live by faith alone, you live by love alone, and you are the one doing the loving because you are free from condemnation. Your love is not a substitution; Christ’s death is the only substitution that sets you free to love without fear of condemnation.
