The New Covenant: What does it mean to be out from under Yahweh’s LAW?
Christ made a covenant with those he redeemed. The Old Covenant has expired and is gone from this world - those that come under the Ransom Sacrifice are no longer under the Laws of the Ten Commandments. Those laws went out of effect when Christ died on the cross for us. Does this mean that you shouldn’t follow the Ten Commandments? No it does not. The Ransom Sacrifice is the provisional washing away of sins, intended for only those worthy of its undeserved kindness. Because though you strive to follow Father’s WAY which is Her LAW, that though you try earnestly, you might break Her LAW, either by being over reached by satanic influence, fear, as was the case of the apostle that denied Christ three times, or from lack of knowledge of Her laws.
covenant >noun 1 a solemn agreement. 2 a contract by which one undertakes to make regular payments to a charity. 3 an agreement held to be the basis of a relationship of commitment with God. >verb agree or pay by covenant. -DERIVATIVES covenantal >adjective. -ORIGIN Old French, ‘agreeing’, from Latin convenire ‘come together’.
Christ Jesus came to Earth as the LAW of Yahweh. This is because he represents Father in his special position to the Creator. He never broke Her laws and has never broken a single law Father has taught to him. Yet, he was given over to mankind as the LAW of Father, and at his sacrificial death those laws were suspended. Suspended for who?
Romans 5:6 “Those Declared Righteous Are Reconciled For while we were still helpless, at the appointed moment, Christ died for the ungodly.” So Christ died for the ungodly, because before his death no one could be reconciled to Father, which meant that EVERYONE in the human family was considered alienated from their Creator. To be alienated is to be considered UNGODLY, and thereby are LAW BREAKERS in Father’s eyes. Law breakers are nothing more than ungodly creations and secondary sinners. Secondary sinners are those that were born into sin without choice. All of you, and countless millions over a six-thousand year span were born into creation as aliens to Father’s world. All of creation is Father’s world. She owns everything by virtue of Her having sparked things into existence. As an alien you were all alienated from the One that holds true ownership to existence.
alien >adjective 1 belonging to a foreign country. 2 unfamiliar and distasteful. 3 (of a plant or animal species) introduced from another country and later naturalized. 4 relating to beings from other worlds. >noun 1 a foreigner. 2 an alien plant or animal species. 3 a being from another world. -DERIVATIVES alienness >noun. -ORIGIN Latin alienus, from alius ‘other’.
The Law manifested Mankind’s need of a Redeemer. Galatians 3: 19,24 “Why, then, the Law? It was added to make transgressions manifest, until the seed should arrive to whom the promise had been made. Consequently the Law has become our tutor leading to Christ, that we might be declared righteous due to faith.” The Law Covenant was replaced by the New Covenant mediated by Jesus Christ. The ministry Jesus has received is as superior to theirs as the covenant of which he is mediator is superior to the old one, and it is founded on better promises (Hebrews 8:6-13).
The NEW COVENANT that provided for a PROVISIONAL LAW that NAILED THE ORIGINAL LAWS to the CROSS, but only for those that come under the new covenant with Christ Jesus. If this were not the case, then no one could be executed under Yahweh’s past laws. Nailing the laws to the Cross is provisional, and it does not mean the original laws are invalid. They are only in limbo for those that break them unwillfully. Nailing them to the stake dismisses infraction against them if it is done by mistake and not with willingness. By suspending Her LAW, Yahweh is able to overlook sin that is committed unwillingly or by accident.
Romans 6:14 “For sin will not rule over you, because you are not under law but under grace.”
So, if anyone has any doubts that the Law Covenant came to an end with Jesus Christ, please read: Romans 10:4 “Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone who believes.” Do you see what will get you counted as “righteous”? But for those that think, since the Law Covenant has been obsolete since Christ was Crucified, that you can do whatever you want without being called on it, you’d better take this into account: Romans 7:7 “But now we have been released from the law, since we have died to what held us, so that we may serve in the new way of the Spirit and not in the old letter of the law. What should we say then? Is the law sin? Absolutely not! On the contrary, I would not have known sin if it were not for the law. For example, I would not have known what it is to covet if the law had not said, You shall not covet.”
What the New Covenant means is that people are either saved or lost by their heart conditions. It is the condition of your heart that dictates whether or not you would murder someone, or cheat on your spouse, or commit adultery or steal. The written Laws are obsolete, but the laws remain in effect by our heart conditions. If we murder, we still sin, because we know better – from within. Knowing you are no longer under law, but are under grace, does not give you the license to go out and kill someone. Your inner conscience tells you that it would be wrong to murder anyone.
Jeremiah 17:10 “I, the LORD, examine the mind, I test the heart to give to each according to his way, according to what his actions deserve”
2 Chronicles 6:30 “may You hear in heaven, Your dwelling place, and may You forgive and repay the man according to all his ways, since You know his heart, for You alone know the human heart”
1 Chronicles 28:9 “As for you, Solomon my son, know the God of your father, and serve Him with a whole heart and a willing mind, for the LORD searches every heart and understands the intention of every thought. If you seek Him, He will be found by you, but if you forsake Him, He will reject you forever.”
Along with that good heart condition goes some FAITH. Ephesians 2:8-9 “For by grace you are saved through faith, and this is not from yourselves; it is God’s gift— not from works, so that no one can boast.”
The covenant excludes those non redeemable, therefore the laws mankind and all intelligent creation have been under remained in effect for those NOT UNDER THE NEW COVENANT. Each human must stand upon their own merit if they do not come under the Ransom Sacrifice, That Sacrifice is the only thing provided in creation that can blot out past sins. Being CONTRARY to what Yahweh expects, puts one under law.
1 Timothy 1:9-11 We know that the law is not meant for a righteous person, but for the lawless and rebellious, for the ungodly and sinful, for the unholy and irreverent, for those who kill their fathers and mothers, for murderers, for the sexually immoral and homosexuals, for kidnappers, liars, perjurers, and for whatever else is contrary to the 190 sound teaching based on the glorious gospel of the blessed God that was entrusted to me.”
The Ransom Sacrifice is so precious a gift from Father to mankind that it is a thorn of grief in the fallen angels sides, because they could never share in such a wonderful gift. But those humans that must stand on their own merit, they cannot save their own souls any more than Father’s angelic opposing children She has disowned.
Hebrews 3:14 “For we have become companions of the Messiah if we hold firmly until the end the reality that we had at the start.” The reality at the start was a reality that began with unity. Satan brought disorder to Father’s creation, therefore that part of reality must come to an end. Humankind born into existence are all alienated due to Adam and Eve breaking of Yahweh’s Divine Law. But Yahweh loved Her world (creation) so much, and wanted Her Divine Plan for mankind to share in creation to become the future reality. Remember, Father regretted making man, but the “world” She loved. The world is Her creation as a whole. But to be a future part of the “whole” one must abide by Father’s laws.
The balance of the scales of justice brings forth the rebalance of creation that adheres to Father’s just laws. Eventually, all law breakers are destined to go that route. Exodus 32:33 “The LORD replied to Moses: “Whoever has sinned against Me I will erase from My book.” That being the memory of our Creator, which is the final step in the ERASE from creation. Satan began his rebellion against Father’s sovereignty that spread like a wildfire destined to go out of control if left unchecked. That is why all these things must come to pass. For creation to be a life of pleasure, all things must be in harmony and revolve around the One that keeps all things in balance.
Live by Father’s WAY, and you will not be living by CHANCE. Your deliverance is mapped out if you cling to Yahweh your God. If you have a good heart you qualify for the Undeserved Kindness bestowed upon us by out Creator. Yahweh is ready to take Her children home and remove Satan’s imprint from creation. When he and his demons are awakened at the end of the Millennium, they will see only Yahweh’s imprint in all of creation. Try as hard as they might, they will only help to weed out the final unfaithful who will fail the final test, but will never again have his twisted outlook enslave and infect all in Father’s domain.
