|COVENANTS OF PROMISE|
COVENANT WITH NOAH
Noah was warned by Alahym (God) that the Earth would suffer a Great Flood. He believed and built an Ark that saved himself, his family and a great number of animals from the waters. The True Vine, planted by Alahym (God), had its beginnings in The New Earth after the Great Flood. Alahym blessed Noah and his son Shem. The significance of Blood being the Life and the command for it not to be eaten with the meat. Anyone who killed someone, would have to die also. Alahym PROMISED never to flood the Earth again and He gave a Rainbow in the clouds to signify the Covenant.
COVENANT WITH ABRAHAM
Alahym PROMISED to make Abram's seed as the stars of heaven and as the sand of the sea and that by his seed All the families of the Earth will be blessed. Issac the son of the PROMISE would carry the blessing. Issac's son Jacob also carried the blessing and was named Israel by Alahym. Israel became the father of the twelve tribes.
COVENANT WITH KING DAVID
Alahym PROMISED David that a king from his line would sit on his throne and it would be established forever.
NEW COVENANT WITH ISRAEL
A virgin will give birth to a child who will be called Immanuel, which means, with us is Alahym (God). He was named Yahushah, which means, Yahuah (YHWH) delivers or saves because He will deliver His people from their Sins. He is the promised Seed of Abraham and also the one promised, The Messiah, who would sit on the Throne of David forever as the King of Kings!
Yahushah the Massiah, the King of Kings, had another task to fulfil first, that is, He had to give himself up to be sacrificed as an offering for sin. Although free from sin, He was made to be sin for us. He took on himself the sins of the world and covered them with His own blood that was poured out at the time of His death.
Alahym so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, so that All who believe in Him might have Everlasting Life. This gift of life brought Yahushah back from the dead and later He was restored to Heaven to be with His Father. The Father then sent His Spirit into the world so that All who believed in His Son would have a Helper and an assurance that what was promised would be fulfilled.
What about the covenant with Moses and Israel, you might ask? Moses did all that Yahuah (YHWH) asked bar the one incident at the rock in the wilderness where he did not give glory to Yahuah for providing water but took it upon himself. So he did not enter the Promised Land.
Israel continued to do what was wrong till eventually the Temple was destroyed by the Romans for the last time in 70 AD.
The agreement between Yahuah and Israel and delivered by Moses was a shadow of the realities to come. The Law could never take away sin so it was ineffective on its own, hence the need for a better covenant one that had better PROMISES. So has The Father and Son given up on Israel? Certainly not, the New Covenant will continue until the fullness of the Gentiles have come in and then the scriptures say that the ones in unbelief will look upon Him whom they pierced.
So now we have a Heavenly Jerusalem, with its Temple and High Priest Yahushah Messiah, who is also the enthroned King of Kings at the right hand of His Father awaiting till all His enemies are placed as a stool for His feet.
It is by the Grace (UNDESERVED KINDNESS) of Alahym (God) you are being saved. At the appointed time HE sent His only begotten Son into the world to save His people from their Sins. By the one sacrifice of Himself, so that all who BELIEVE IN HIM, might not be destroyed but have Everlasting Life. We need to stop what we are doing or thinking in this life and listen to the Words of Life from the Father and Son that are written in the Bible.
If you are not a Jew, you are not under the Law of Moses, are not required to keep the Sabbath or any Festivals or New Moons or abstain from unclean meats. You are required to Love Alahym with all your heart, your Soul, and your Mind and to Love your neighbour as yourself, abstain from Blood, from things Strangled, from things Offered to Idols and from Fornication. Those who teach otherwise have made the Sacrifice of the Messiah of no effect and are robbing you of the GIFT which has been given to us who believe.
