The New Covenant is not a Modification of the Old

The New Covenant Is Not A Modification Of The Old The New Covenant Is Not A Modification Of The Old CovenantLest anyone should seriously entertain the notion that the New Covenant is inharmony with the Old Covenant or that it is a modification of the Old Testament orthat it is still in force today, consider the following Scriptures:Old Mosaic Covenant New Spiritual CovenantOLD Cov........................2Co 3:14 NEW Covenant.....2Co 3:61st Covenant...............Heb 8:7, 9:1 2nd Covenant........Heb 8:7, 10:1-9Came by Moses.................Joh 1:17 Came by Christ.....Heb 8:6, 9:15Law of God in STONE.....2Co 3:3 Law of God in HEART ..Heb 10:16Law of MOSES........Act 13:38-39 Law of CHRIST.....Gal 6:2Law of flesh...................Rom 7:5-6 Law of the SPIRIT.Rom 8:2NOT of faith.......................

Trump Mocks God with Covid-19

Donald Trump is testing and mocking God by saying he is strong and the Covid-19 he caught, is weak. Trump has not, as of this writing, defeated the virus. He also has put photographers and military men at the White House in danger. The Coronavirus, Covid, came from God. The book of Revelation speaks to vials and plagues being poured out upon the earth. For any world leader to make fun of God, as if that leader was stronger than God, is a serious error in judgement. Most people, even those who are not Christians, show some appreciation and gratitude for surviving Covid-19. Donald Trump is bragging about surviving Covid, even though he is not out of the woods.Those who are arrogant will face trouble in this world. Donald Trump is headed for trouble from on High. Could he change, and help others take Covid seriously. I don't think so. The world is like a media event to him, and his image is all that matters.Meanwhile, those who do not receive his high level treatment may suffer far …

The Torah Sacrifice and a Better Way

I found this wonderful and concise explanation for all believers, but especially for Jewish believers who were raised under the law: In Judaic Theology, four concepts are involved:1) Adamic sin which is genetic or inheritted2) individual sins which we commit ourselves3) Forgiveness of sins4) Ratification of forgivenessEvery man begotten of a human father inherits the sin of Adam, for which we all suffer death. Everyman begotten of man, commits individual sins, for which there are commensurate punishment or.penalties.Now, because there is such a concept as sin in the Law of Moses the concept of forgivesness of sins also emerged. Yet, for every sin, whether Adamic or individual, after penitence and repentance, the forgiveness must needs be ratified by the "shedding of blood."  Without the use of blood to ratify forgiveness, ones sins are retained intact. But with the use of blood, it is ratified that our sins are forgiven.Thus, in the Old Covenant, individual sins were forgive…

Bible Dilemmas, Free Will and Pharisees

It may be helpful to deal with Bible dilemmas. Election and a plane crash. Infants in Hell. Christ died for the sheep. The new Pharisees are free willers. The Gospel is not for sale. The elect are elect even before they are saved.  Grace and Great Trinity scriptures. Sleep isn't sleep. Tongues and Prophesy were temporary.Natural Conscience does not save anyone.
1. Is God unfair choosing a few people to be saved? Well, say there is a plane crash. Most people die but a handful live. Aren't we happy that a handful lived? God chose who  lives and no one faults Him. So the human race crashed in Adam. God has chosen a few to live and yet everyone is angry about that choosing. God is now somehow wrong for choosing when He did not have to save anyone!
2. An infant is raped and dies. A sovereign God plans all things. So how is that evil a fair representative of a just God? First, the rape and death show the power of evil in the world and that evil is really evil. It is disgustingly wicke…

The Love of God; A Fifty Year Journey

The love of God in my life began 50 years ago. I was not looking for God. I had heard bad versions of the gospel multiple times prior to age 21.

But at that age of 21, God took pieces of the gospel I had heard and gave me an understanding of Godly faith through divine revelation. So when I was 21, not looking for God, I was taken over from above. My heart was cut. The true nature of my unbelief was exposed. I was alone in a house at the time.
God did not ask me for permission to construct this surgery on my soul.

So, I had no choice, I was falling even though I stood on solid ground. I had to express my need for the Savior as unbelief became very uncomfortable. Looking to Him I was given repentance which can only come through this regeneration. Being born again through the spiritual cutting of the heart came before my repentance and faith.

My heart was changed in an instant. My hesitation to repent regarding Christ was changed in a short time, likely under a minute! A new heart is God&…

God Predestined But Holds Men Responsible

This is the NIV. I always compare translations because they all have flaws. The following is proof God predestined in Christ, yet holds man responsible for their fallen nature and their unbelief! God holds men responsible for their fallen nature and their unbelief even though they were born with that nature.
JOHN 12:

37 Even after Jesus had performed so many signs(A) in their presence, they still would not believe in him.38 This was to fulfill the word of Isaiah the prophet: “Lord, who has believed our message
and to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed?”[a](B) 39 For this reason they could not believe, because, as Isaiah says elsewhere: 40 “He has blinded their eyes
and hardened their hearts,
so they can neither see with their eyes,
nor understand with their hearts,
nor turn—and I would heal them.”[b](C) 41 Isaiah said this because he saw Jesus’ glory(D) and spoke about him.(E)

Israel did not receive what was promised

The following scriptures were a warning to ancient physical Israel that the covenant would be taken away and given to others. After reading these, see Matthew 22:1-14. This is NIV but use any translation you are comfortable with and compare translations. 

Matthew chapter 8:

10 When Jesus heard this, he was amazed and said to those following him, “Truly I tell you, I have not found anyone in Israel with such great faith.11 I say to you that many will come from the east and the west, and will take their places at the feast with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob in the kingdom of heaven.12 But the subjects of the kingdom will be thrown outside, into the darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.”


Christ is not speaking about the elect Jews or those with Jewish descent in the New Covenant (see Luke 21:24 and Romans 11). All the Apostles were Jewish. The early church in the first century got its start in Judea and outlying provinces (Acts 2). The late callin…
