Hebrews 9:13-14 The New Covenant in the New Testament- Part 1
©2020 WF Cobb Truthbase.net DailyTruthbase.blogspot
Jer 31:31 Behold, the days are coming when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah
I. The ratified New Cov't is implemented for the future regathered Jews, but NT believers enter into some of their blessings Rm 11
HS is active in both OT/NT to get redeemed/forgiven believers holy (Word/Fllshp), but is resisted (Phil 2:13 at work in you will/do).
Acts 7:51 stiff-necked and uncircumcised in heart and ears! You always resist the Holy Spirit; as your fathers did, so do you.
Mt 26:28 “For this cup is My blood of the new covenant, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.” Mk 14:24
Lk 22:20 took the cup after supper, "This cup is the new covenant in My blood, which is shed for you.” 1Cor 11:25 remembrance
2Cor 3:6....as ministers of the new covenant, not of the letter but of the Spirit; for the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life.
Dt 30:2 when you return to the LORD your God and obey His voice, acc to all that I command you today, with all your heart and with all your soul, 3 LORD your God will bring you back from captivity, and have compassion on you, and gather you again from all the nations...scattered you. 5 possess it. He will prosper 6 And the LORD your God will circumcise your heart...
to love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul, that you may live!
II. Don'tconfuse cleansing and remission with forgiveness (1Jn 1:9 forgive sins & cleanse from unrighteousness -they're not the same thing, nor is a cleansed conscience equal forgiveness). God's goal is for believers to be holy (most of NT) for rlshp and reward/inheritance (see 1Pt 1)
Heb 9:2 Not with blood of goats/calfs but with His own blood He entered the Most Holy Place once for all, having obtained eternal redemption. 13 For if the blood of bulls/goats and the ashes of a heifer, sprinkling the unclean, sanctifies for the purifying of the flesh, 14 how much more shall the blood of Christ, who thru the eternal Spirit offered Himself without spot to God, cleanse your conscience from dead works to serve the living God? 15 And for this reason He is the Mediator of the new covenant, by means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions under the first covenant, that those who are called may receive the promise of the eternal inheritance.
Cleanse= PURIFY free from sin/defilement, not (necessarily) guilt, for service Isa 6:7 burning coal, sin taken away; purged
Qumran recognize error and repent; 'if not sincere, but still clings to satan, excluded from forgiveness and the New Covt' 1QS 2:8,26
1Jn 1:9 If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
Thayer's: Classic weed; cleanse/make clean (from demons); to free from the defilement of sin and from faults; to purify from wickedness purify 1Jn 1:9 Titus 2:14 (Ps 51 clean heart); consecrate/dedicate Heb 9:22
Remission = SEND AWAY Thayer's: lit=send away, release from bondage/prison/horserace; acquit, fig pardon, (forgiveness)
III. Laws in mind & heart (look at life thru lens of God's Word, and make decisions via the values of Biblical wisdom and leading of HS)
Heb 8:7 For if that first covenant had been faultless, then no place would have been sought for a second. 8 Because finding fault with them, He says: "Behold, the days are coming, says the LORD, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah 9 not acc to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day when I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt; because they did not continue in My covenant, and I disregarded them, says the LORD. 10 For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says the LORD:
1) I will put My laws in their mind and write them on their hearts; and 2) I will be their God, and they shall be My people. 11 None of them shall 3) teach his neighbor, and none his brother, saying, 'Know the LORD,' for all shall know Me, from the least of them to the greatest of them. 12 For I will be 4) merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their lawless deeds I will remember no more." 13 In..."A new covenant," He has made the first obsolete. Now what is becoming obsolete and growing old is ready to vanish away.
Ezek 37:14 (resurrected regathered bones) 14 I will put My Spirit (Word) in you, and you shall live, your own land.
Then know that I, YHWH, have spoken it and performed it
IV. The point of the internalized HS/word is to be able to serve/worship (Resp to Rev) God by the HS Phil 2:13 and be gloriously blessed
Acts 3:25 sons of the...covenant that God made with “in your descendants all the nations of the earth will be blessed.’
26 God raised up his servant and sent him first to you, to bless you by turning each one of you from your iniquities”
Heb 10:21 and having a High Priest over the house of God, 22 let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled/cleansed from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water.
Heb 12:22 But you have come to Mount Zion and to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, to an innumerable company of angels, 23 to the general assembly and church of the firstborn who are registered in heaven, to God the Judge of all, to the spirits of just men made perfect, 24 to Jesus the Mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling that speaks better things than that of Abel. 25 See that you do not refuse Him who speaks. For if they did not escape who refused Him who spoke on earth, much more shall we not escape if we turn away from Him who speaks from heaven, 28 Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom not shaken, let us have grace/power 4:16, by which we may serve God acceptably with innate repugnance of dishonorable act Trench and godly fear.
Jer 32:37 gather...driven in My anger, fury, great wrath...cause them to dwell safely. 38 My people...their God; 39 give them one heart and one way, that they may fear Me forever, for their good 40 make an everlasting covenant with them, that I will not turn away from doing them good; but I will put My fear in their hearts so that they will not depart from Me.
