But now Jesus has obtained a more excellent ministry, by as much as He is also the mediator of a better covenant, which has been enacted on better promises. Hebrews 8:6.
In the same way He took the cup also after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in My blood; do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of Me.” 1 Corinthians 11:25.
Today the LORD (יהוה) God says:
After the great division between God and man, came the great reconciliation of re-unification by the Blood of the Lamb. And when I restore, it is better than before.
The New Covenant is superior to the Old, based on better promises. I never gave Adam the Kingdom, I gave him the earth and rule over the works of My hands therein, but now in Jesus, I have given you heaven and earth. Under the Old Covenant David sang, “The heavens are the heavens of the LORD, but the earth He has given to the sons of men.” Psalm 115:16. But now Jesus told you I have given Him authority over Heaven and earth, and you are a joint heir with Christ. It has pleased Me to give you, My little flock who believes in My Son, the Kingdom. As He is, so are you in this world. Heir of all. I tell you in the book of Revelation that the redeemed will not have need of the light of a lamp nor the light of the sun, because I will illumine them; and they will reign forever and ever. Revelation 22:5. In Jesus, by receiving the abundance of grace and the gift of righteousness, you reign in life through Him. Romans 5:17.
Adam did not have this. Why? Because man and God had not yet become ONE in My Son. Jesus closed the gap that kept us apart. He is God made Man, fully divine and fully human, the two natures joined into one. He was the missing link. Not only did He take away your sins and reinstate you in the position on earth that Adam abdicated, Jesus also made you partakers of the divine nature so that you could be filled with all My fullness bodily. He gave you access to the Kingdom by the One Spirit from within your spirit united with Mine. Through Him I have poured My Spirit into your heart. This is a whole new creation in Christ. Not a repair of the old, but something new that had never been before. I am always doing something new. Do you not perceive it?
Paul, by revelation, understood the new creation. He wrote, “Therefore from now on we recognize no one according to the flesh; even though we have known Christ according to the flesh, yet now we know Him in this way no longer. Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come. Now all these things are from God, who reconciled us to Himself through Christ.” 2 Corinthians 5:16-18.
And there is more. My Son became the high priest and mediator of a New Covenant built on better promises, for the Old, in the face of the death of My Son once for all in an eternal redemption has made the Old one obsolete. You have a change of priesthood. Jesus is a priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek, not according to the tribe of Levi of the Mosaic Covenant. The High Priest of the Old Covenant tore his robe in front of Jesus, signifying a change in priesthood. If you recall, when I gave Moses the instructions for the garments of the High Priest I was very specific that the robe was never to be torn and that it was woven all of one piece with no seams. And Jesus’ robe was seamless and was not torn. He is your new High Priest and His priesthood will never end. He lives to forever intercede for you.
For it was fitting for you to have such a high priest, holy, innocent, undefiled, separated from sinners and exalted above the heavens; who does not need daily, like the high priests of the Old Covenant, to offer up sacrifices, first for his own sins and then for the sins of the people, because this Jesus did once for all when He offered up Himself. For the Law appoints men as high priests who are weak, but the word of the oath, which came after the Law, appoints a Son, made perfect forever.
Jesus has obtained a more excellent ministry than the priests of the Old Covenant, who were subject to death and had sins themselves that needed atonement. Jesus is the mediator of a better covenant, which has been enacted on better promises. Hebrews 8:6. And that Covenant was sealed, not in the blood of lambs and goats, but in the eternal blood of My Son. Remember? The night before He died for you, the following wonder occurred: “In the same way He took the cup also after supper, saying, ‘This cup is the new covenant in My blood; do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of Me.’” 1 Corinthians 11:25. For this reason He is the mediator of a new covenant, so that, since a death has taken place for the redemption of the transgressions that were committed under the first covenant, those who have been called may receive the promise of the eternal inheritance. Hebrews 9:15.
For if that first covenant had been faultless, there would have been no occasion sought for a second. For finding fault with them, I foretold to My prophet Jeremiah: “Behold, days are coming, when I will effect a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah. Not like the covenant which I made with their fathers on the day when I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt. For they did not continue in My covenant, though I was a husband to them. For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says the LORD: I will put My laws into their minds, and I will write them on their hearts. and I will be their God, and they shall be My people. And they shall not teach everyone his fellow citizen, and everyone his brother, saying, ‘Know the LORD,’ for all will know Me, from the least to the greatest of them. For I will be merciful to their iniquities, and I will remember their sins no more.” Hebrews 8:7-12. When I said, “A new covenant,” I made the first obsolete. But whatever is becoming obsolete and growing old is ready to disappear. Hebrews 8:13. It was time for the new creation and the New and Everlasting Covenant of Love. And if you belong to Jesus, that is the one you are now in, not the Old, but the New. And under the New, everything I have is yours and it can never be broken. For it is made and sealed with Jesus and you participate by being in Him. He is the mediator of the New Covenant with Me, not you. There is no other way you join into this Covenant but in Him as part of His body. And once sealed in Him you are there forever.
This is good news. It is time to give the joyful shout. You are not the same as you once were. It is all new. And it is forever, because the Son has a place in the house forever, and in Him, so do you. Whom the Son sets free is free indeed. You are now to walk in newness of life.
Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit My kingdom? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, will inherit My kingdom and such were some of you; but you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and in My Spirit. 1 Corinthians 6:9-11. You were once foolish, disobedient, deceived, enslaved to various lusts and pleasures, spending your life in malice and envy, hateful, hating one another. But Jesus changed all that for those who receive Him as Lord. In Him manifested My kindness toward and My love for you and I saved you and made you righteous by His taking all your sins and the punishment due them, not on the basis of deeds which you have done in righteousness, but according to My mercy as expressed in My justice being satisfied in Jesus, resulting in the washing of regeneration and renewing by the Holy Spirit, whom I poured out upon you richly through Jesus Christ your Savior, so that being justified by His grace you would be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life. Titus 3:3-7.
You are no longer a sinner. In Jesus, you died to sin (for His death was your death) and I raised you in Him to newness of life when I raised you up with Him. I have rescued you from the realm of darkness and translated you to the Kingdom of My beloved Son. I have qualified you for My inheritance. I have anointed and appointed you and called you into fellowship (partnership) with My Son. You are now a child of light. You are not the same anymore. You have become a temple of My Holy Spirit. You have become one spirit with Me. 1 Corinthians 6:17.
You are not the same, you have been created anew. Everything has changed this side of the cross. Begin walking with Me and conversing with Me every moment of the day and night. When you seek Me you will find that I am right there with you. Please do not think of yourself in the same way anymore. Renew your mind and be transformed.
I love you. I have made you entirely new. Read this message from My servant Paul and I think you will understand:
“And you were dead in your trespasses and sins, in which you formerly walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, of the spirit that is now working in the sons of disobedience. Among them we too all formerly lived in the lusts of our flesh, indulging the desires of the flesh and of the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, even as the rest. But God, being rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in our transgressions, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), and raised us up with Him, and seated us with Him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, so that in the ages to come He might show the surpassing riches of His grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; not as a result of works, so that no one may boast. For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand so that we would walk in them.” Ephesians 2:1-10.
