The Old and the New Covenants

The Old and the New Covenants

 

Let us remember that those of the Old Testament were seeking the righteousness of the Letter of the Law of Moses.

 

We of the New Covenant are seeking the Justification of the Spirit of the Law Christ Jesus by the Indwelling.

 

But now that Faith comes by Grace of the Spirit and not the Letter of the Law it is written;

Romans 3:19-24 (KJV)

19 Now we know that what things so ever the law saith, it saith to them who are under the law: that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God.

20 Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin.

21 But now the righteousness of God without the law is manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets; 22 Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference:

23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; 24 Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:

 

And now that the Old Covenant of the Law is replaced by the New Covenant of Christ, the Jew must honor not only the Law of Moses but also the Spiritual Law of Grace through Christ Jesus.

As it is written;

Jeremiah 31:31-34 (KJV)
31  Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah: 32  Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they brake, although I was an husband unto them, saith the LORD:

33  But this shall be the covenant that 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 hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people.

34  And they shall teach no more every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the LORD: for they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith the LORD: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more.
