Freedom From Religion for, …. Liberty in Jesus Christ (Part 4)
Old Covenant Vs New Covenant

Keeping God #1 in Your Business (PR_Vol_68)

Galatians 5:1-6 (AMP) ~~ [Liberty threatened by Legalism]
4) “If you seek to be justified and declared righteous and to be given a right standing with God through the Law, you are brought to nothing and so separated (severed) from Christ. You have fallen away from grace (from God’s gracious favor and unmerited blessing).”

Welcome to (Part 4) of our series. If you have not studied the previous releases on this subject, it would be advisable to do so. As you can see, the scripture above could be quite confusing to some. I do not want to create any unnecessary confusion in your mind. Also, keep in mind that when we refer to “The Law,” we mean the 600+ Mosaic Laws of the OLD Covenant and The Ten Commandments.

In this message, I would like to examine the progression and the main components of the three major covenants that we have received from God. The first covenant was the one that God established between Himself, Adam and [Eve], in the Garden; which they broke, and lost the blessings. 

In this first covenant, God’s part was that He lovingly gave ALL the blessings and all man had to do to keep the blessings was to be obedient. (Genesis 2:16-17) .. 16) “And the Lord God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: 17) But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die”.

In the second Covenant, God made and agreement between Himself and the Jews. He gave The Mosaic Laws. God’s part was to only give the blessing as a reward, and there was a built-in curse for disobedience. Man’s part was to obey to receive a blessing or incur a built-in curse for disobedience.  

In other words, [Do Good get Good, Do Bad get Bad]. (Exodus 20:2-17): The Ten Commandments, and (Deuteronomy 28:1-68). God knew that the Jews would not be able to keep these Laws, so He instituted animal sacrifices for annual redemption of their sins, because He still wanted to bless them. The Laws were given only to reveal their sinfulness and the futility of self effort for justification with God. (Rom 3:20) Notice that God gave the laws only to the Jews; at Mt. Sinai. From Egypt to Mt. Sinai, they were under Grace. 

In the third Covenant, [The Covenant of Grace and Truth through Jesus Christ], (John 1-17) God made an agreement between Himself and Himself. (Hebrews 8:6-13) “..12) For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their iniquities will I remember no more”. In other words, only God has a part to play. All man has to do, is to believe and confess Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. 

God could do this, because He had forever expended His wrath; which was meant to punish us for our past, present and future sins, upon His Son Jesus Christ. He has also blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places, (Ephesians 1:3) because Jesus  has fulfilled ALL the Laws of the OLD Covenant on our behalf. 

So my friend, God has not gone soft on sin. He is still a Just and benevolent God. The sins have been punished and the Laws have been fulfilled. Jesus got ALL our BAD that He did not deserve, and we have received ALL His GOOD that we do not and cannot merit or deserve.

Beloved, the way to conduct our lives now, in this New Covenant of GRACE is to be LED by the Holy Spirit. We will cover this in our final message of this series; (Part 5).  Thank you for your time and please come back.
