THERE IS A NEW COVENANT BY GARY WILKERSON, SON OF THE LATE, DAVID WILKERSON
Scripture Reference: Hebrews 10:12-14
"For by one offering He has perfected forever those who are being sanctified." - Hebrews 10:14
What a sacrifice! God now says the covenant is not like the covenant made with the angels. It is not like the covenant made with Adam - and Adam failed.
Nor is it like the covenant of circumcision - where the children of Israel failed. It is not like the covenant made with the Law of Moses and it is not like the covenant of the High priestly sacrifice.
God says that this is a new covenant made through His Son, Christ Jesus. It is a better covenant, a more excellent covenant, a holy covenant. It is Christ's covenant coming to bring us into new Life, new creation.
He is taking out the old and making all things new.
this is not a covenant based on our works. It is not a partnership with God. It is not God dealing with His people on mutual terms of performances. It is not god saying,
"I will perform this if you will perform that."
Instead, God said, "Have you had enough of these old covenants? Are you weary enought now of failing?"
Are you tired and frustrated of trying in your own moral power to show how holy you are before God?
Are you tired of seeing yourself as equal with God, as if God could bring His bargain to the covant and than you could bring your bargain and stand on equal ground?
The Word says that every single covenant God made long ago had one purpoe - to show us the inablity of our moral fiber, our inability to be covenant keepers on equal ground with God (Hebrews 1:1-3).
It finally drove us to the point - as God does throught the law now, even in the New Testament times - where we say,
I cannot do this myself. Nothing in my hand I bring to you , Lord.
Without You taking both parts of the covenant, Your side and mine, without You fulfilling Your promises
Yourself and fulfilling my promises for me, I cannot stand."
THERE IS NOW A NEW COVENANT!
It is my prayer that we never lose sight of the Covenant Giver, Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior.
