The Old Testament spoke of newness which could be had by believing the New – by believing in Messiah (Christ) who was given [as high priest in the order of Melchizadek (Psalm 110:4, 45:7)] for the [mediating (1 Timothy 2:5)] of the New covenant (Isaiah 42:6, 49:8, 2 Corinthians 5:17).
This article simply aims to list some of the blessings which are found in the New Covenant – one of the major blessings being everlasting life without end at resurrection.
Hebrews 10:5 references Psalm 40:6 – however, instead of saying ‘ear’ as the Psalm does, Hebrews says ‘body’.
Here the two verses are reconciled and explained in context;
The following explanation is intended to share how Hebrews 8:13 in no way says that a believer in Christ (Messiah) no longer observes the law of Moses.
Rather, in context we will see that it speaks of something else, in that a believer is nolonger destined for judgement under the old covenant and liable to eventually perish (Isaiah 28:22).
Instead, a believer is under the new covenant (Jeremiah 31:31, Isaiah 42:6, 49:8) which comes with saving grace (Psalm 110:4, Isaiah 53:11-12), and ultimately means everlasting life without end at ressurection (Isaiah 28:16, 28:18, 53:11-12).
With this faith, a believer observes the Law of Moses (Torah);
Do we then overthrow the law by this faith? By no means! On the contrary, we uphold the law.
Romans 3:31 ESV
This explanation aims to show that ‘the angel of the LORD’, is not necessarily the same angel in every instance. Such would inturn mean that the incorrect man made doctrine known as the ‘trinity’ – which typically counts every instance of ‘angel of the LORD’ (especially in the Old Testament) as being a reference for it meaning it is Christ appearing – as incorrect.
Explaining how the ‘overwhelming scourge’ phenomenon mentioned in Isaiah 28:16, 28:18 is deeply linked with the ‘…evil I do not want is what I keep on doing…. it is sin living in me that does it…’ of Romans 7:19-20 ESV – in that it is those worldly people who wield spiritual wickedness of Ephesians 6:12, that are sinning and not a believer.
Here some Holy Scriptures from the Old and New Testaments will be shared, and some will also be explained with regard to;
■ Loving Enemies
■ G-d’s Discipline Is Good
■ Overcomming Sin and Trial
The purpose of this explanation, is to show how the New Testament (Brit Chadasha) was written in languages native to ancient Israel, and also Greek.
We know this as the annointed holy Jews who penned the New Testament, such as the apostle Paul, were multi-lingual and had to communicate with people of different languages – both verbally (Acts 17:22) and also with written letters and manuscripts (Galatians 6:11), outside of Israel.
This explanation aims to share Isaiah 42:6, 49:8, two fantastic verses which show us that the servant whom G-d sent is one man (Messiah/Christ) and therefore not a nation (many people).
These verses both state Messiah was ‘given’ as/for a [new] ‘covenant’ (ref. Jeremiah 31:31) for the many – in the sense that he is the High Priest in the order of Melchizadek (Psalm 110:4, 45:7) for the new covenant.
Showing how Matthew 27:46 indeed references the beginning of Psalm 22:1
‘…”My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?”…’
(Psalm 22:1 NIV)
– however the recitation of the Psalm stops there, and the actual context of what is being communicated is found in Isaiah 49:4
‘…“I have labored in vain;… yet surely my right is with the LORD, and my recompense with my God.”’
(Isaiah 49:4 ESV)
– As only part of the people believed, Isaiah says ‘…laboured in vain…’ (ESV), and this communicates how Christ yearns for all people to be saved, and not just some – much like His Father’s will (1 Timothy 2:3-4, 2 Peter 3:9).
Isaiah also shows us how Christ (Mesaiah) also looked forward to being at the right hand of G-d above, again.
