The Old Covenant Verses The New Covenant

  • Hello, and welcome back!  I am so excited to talk to you more, about Jesus Christ!  I would like you to study with me, the book of Hebrews. Most people think of Hebrews 11, ” The Hall Of Faith”, where example, after example is written of men, and women who had faith. But, today we will look at the old and new covenant. First, let’s begin by reading Hebrews chapter 1. In the “temporal” or old covenant, God, in times past spoke through the Prophets.  In these last days, he speaks through Jesus Christ (A new and superior covenant).                                                                                                                                                                         Let’s take a look at Jesus:
  • He is the only one that can purge  (cleanse, get rid of) our sins (through His blood on the cross).
  • He is the only one that has sat down at the right hand of God (After His work was finished on the cross).
  •  Jesus is even better than the angels.
  • He is described as ‘God the Father’s begotten Son”.
  • In verse 6, Jesus is also described as “The first begotten”, being someone that was worshiped by ANGELS!
  • In verse 7, we see that angels are different.  They are MINISTERING SPIRITS. In verses 8-12, Jesus is compared to angels, in that, God has never told angels to “Sit on His right hand, until He makes their enemies their foot stool”.   BUT, He HAS told Jesus this.    Let’s look at verse 14, which says angels are ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation!    Exciting isn’t it!  So, if we just stopped at chapter ONE in HEBREWS, we would have learned a lot of important information so far!   We learned WHO Jesus is (His importance), especially when comparing Him to “The Prophets in old times”, and “To Angels”.

It get’s even better in Chapter 2 of Hebrews.    Join me next time, as we continue our study in Hebrews,  “The Old Covenant Verses The New Covenant”! Thanks,& God bless!  Let’s learn together!  I am a Pupil here as well!  Drop me a comment, or share something in your heart about our study so far.

Til next time, Shalom (peace),

Ann

Did You Know……

Hi!   Welcome everyone and God bless you abundantly!  Did you know that God loves YOU!   He sent His Son Jesus to die for your sins.  In the Bible, John 3:16 says; ” For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotton son that whosover believeth in him shall not perish but have everlasting life.”       Whosoever means you!  He extended his GRACE (kindness, unmerited favor) to you!   God will draw you unto himself through Jesus Christ-through his sacrifice on the cross.  So…what is your part in this , after he extends his grace and gift of salvation (through Jesus Christ)?     We are to recieve this gift through placing our faith and trust in Jesus Christ.    But, how…. do we do this you ask.??     By beleiving that Jesus Christ, the Son of God, died on the cross for your sins.    He paid the final and ultimate price, one time for you.    Believe he rose from the dead to give you life, life in and through him…….make him Lord of your life.     BELIEVE and put your trust and faith in him.       Just think,  you can know God hears your prayers because,  Jesus is NOW at the right hand of God our Father, making intercession for us.  You will know you are a CHILD of GOD by your spirit bearing wittness with his spirit.     God is a SPIRIT and He Is LOVE!  WoW!  Cool, huh.     If you have believed as I said above….in your heart and confessed Jesus is Lord with your mouth….He is the way to Salvation, then you have been born AGAIN!     You are brand new spiritually.     You have been sealed with the HOLY SPIRIT!    You may say, who is the Holy Spirit?     Well….after Jesus Christ died on the cross, and rose from the dead, he said that he had to go but would send us a COMFORTER-The Holy Spirit.    He would lead us unto all truth…convict us (not condemn) guide us and so much more!      God really loves YOU!!    He extends HIS INVITATION to YOU right NOW—for today is the day of salvation—don’t put it off.     For you have a enemy called satan, who wants to keep you away from God your Father.    We are made in God’s image and he hates us, he is the father of LIES!      Become a child of God where  now you can cry ABBA, FATHER!  Even Dad.     He is waiting to wrap his arms around YOU.  He made you, he is your creater….he loves you…he knew you in your Mother’s womb.     May God bless you!     Let me know how this has touched you….thanks for reading!      In Christ,  Ann
