 The New Covenant


 

 The bible that Christians use is split into two parts; the Old Testament (God’s covenant with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, dealing with Israel), and the New Testament (God’s new covenant dealing with salvation through his perfect servant, the messiah, Jesus Christ). In the New Testament Jesus fulfills prophecy and comes as God’s son to establish his kingdom (2 Samuel 7:12-14), suffers and dies for our sins (Isaiah 53:4-12).

 


Jeremiah 31:27-34

27 The days are coming, “Declares the Lord,” when I will plant the house of Israel and the house of Judah with the offspring of men and animals. 28 Just as I watched over them to uproot and tear down, and to overthrow, destroy and bring disaster, so I will watch over them to build and plant, “declares the Lord. 29 In those days people will no longer say, “ The Fathers have eaten sour grapes, and the children's teeth are set on edge.” 30 Instead, everyone will die for his own sin; whoever eats sour grapes-his own teeth will be set on edge. 31 “The time is coming,” declares the Lord, “when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah. 32 It will not be like the covenant I made with their forefathers when I took them by the hand to lead them out of Egypt, because they broke my covenant, though I was a husband to them,” declares the Lord. 33 “this is the covenant I will make with the house of Israel after that time,” declares the Lord. “I will put my law in their minds and write it on their hearts. I will be their God and they will be my people. 34 No longer will a man teach his neighbor, or a man his brother, saying ‘know the Lord,’ because they will all know me, from the least of them to the greatest,” declares the Lord. “For I will forgive their wickedness and will remember there sins no more.” (Because Jesus died for us, if we put our faith in him we receive God’s Holy Spirit, and he teaches us all things. God’s knowledge and wisdom is put into our hearts.)

 


Hebrews 8:8-13

8 But God found fault with the people and said: “The time is coming, declares the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah. 9 It will not be like the covenant with their forefathers when I took them by the hand to lead them out of Egypt, because they did not remain faithful to my covenant, and I turned from them, declares the Lord. 10 This is the covenant I will make with the house of Israel after that time, declares the Lord. I will put my laws in their minds and write them on their hearts. I will be their God, and they will be my people. 11 No longer will a man teach his neighbor, or a man his brother, saying, ‘know the Lord,’ because they will all know me, from the least of them to the greatest. 12 For I will forgive their wickedness and remember their sins no more.” 13 By calling this covenant “new” he has made the first one obsolete; and what is obsolete and aging will soon disappear.

(Because Jesus died for us, God has poured out His spirit upon the Earth so that we have no excuse for our actions. We can not say that God is not with us, because He is, and He is able to guide everyone through His Holy Spirit. Never before has such mercy been shown. The door to salvation is approachable simply by believing. Mercy and guidance have been pourn out on all through repentance, obedience, and faith in Christ.)

 


Ezekiel 34:22-31

22 I will save my flock, and they will no longer be plundered. I will judge between one sheep and another. 23 I will place over them one shepherd. 24 I the Lord will be their God, and my servant David will be prince among them. I the Lord have spoken. 25 “ ‘I will make a covenant of peace with them and rid the land of wild beasts so that they may live in the desert and sleep in the forests in safety. 26 I will bless them and the places surrounding my hill. I will send down showers in season; there will be showers of blessing. 27 The trees of the field will yield their fruit and the ground will yield its crops; the people will be secure in their land. They will know that I am the Lord, when I break the bars of their yolk and rescue them from the hands of those who enslaved them. 28 They will no longer be plundered by the nations, nor will wild animals devour them. They will live in safety, and no one will make them afraid. 29 I will provide for them a land renowned for its crops, and they will no longer be victims of famine in the land or bear the scorn of the nations. 30 Then they will know that I, the Lord their God, am with them and that they, the house of Israel, are my people, declares theSovereign Lord. 31 You my sheep, the sheep of my pasture, are my people, and I am your God, declares the Sovereign Lord.’ ”

(The Lord made a covenant that one day after the messiah came, He would make a place for His people to live in safety and unity and freedom. America began as a place as such, but America is slowly fading and turning away from God just as Israel did.)

 


Ezekiel 37: 24-28

24 ‘ “My servant David will be king over them, and they will all have one shepherd. They will follow my laws and be careful to keep my decrees. 25 They will live in the land I gave to my servant Jacob, the land your forefathers lived. They and their children and their children’s children will live there forever. 26 I will make a covenant of peace with them; it will be an everlasting covenant. I will establish them and increase their numbers, and I will put my sanctuary among them forever. 27 My dwelling place will be with them; I will be their God and they will be my people. 28 The nations will know that I the Lord make Israel holy, when my sanctuary is among them forever.’ ”

(After Jesus died, God made His home in us. We are the temple of God if we believe in Jeus and hold to His teachings.)


Ezekiel 39:29

29 I will no longer hide my face from them, for I will pour out my spirit on the house of Israel, declares the Sovereign Lord.

 


Mathew 26:27-28

27 Then he took the cup, gave thanks and offered it to them saying, “Drink from it, all of you. 28 This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins.

(Even today we hold what we call "communion" in rememberance of Jesus' sacrifice.)


Luke 24:44-49

44 He said to them, “This is what I told you while I was still with you: Everything must be fulfilled that is written about me in the law of Moses, the prophets and the psalms.” 45 Then he opened their minds so that they could understand the scriptures. 46 He told them, “This is what is written: The Christ must suffer and rise from the dead on the third day, 47 and repentance and forgiveness of sins will be preached in his name to all nations, beginning at Jerusalem. 48 You are witnesses of these things. 49 I am going to send you what my father has promised; but stay in the city until you have been clothed with the power from on high.” (All of the prophecies were fulfilled just as they were written in the old testament. The fact that all of the messianic prophecies were fulfilled is proof that Jesus was the messiah, the anointed one. The only way to deny Jesus as the messiah would be to prove that He never existed. But we already have much proof that He did in fact exist.)

 


Acts 13:38-39

38 “Therefore, my brothers, I want you to know that through Jesus the forgiveness of sins is proclaimed to you. 39 Through him everyone who believes is justified from everything you could not be justified from by the law of Moses.

 


Hebrews 9:15

15 -Christ is the mediator of the new covenant, that those who are called may receive the promised eternal inheritance- now that he has died as a ransom to set them free from the sins committed under the first covenant.
