Building up believers and the New Testament church

The New Covenant

"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" (Jeremiah 31:31-34). "This is the New Covenant in My blood, which is shed for you" (Luke 22:20). What is the "New Covenant" that the Lord is speaking about? Who is included in the New Covenant? What are the provisions of this New Covenant? How are we brought into the New Covenant? Answers to these questions form the basis of what God is doing today.

Although this subject is very large and really includes all of the teaching found in what we call the "New Testament," our purpose here is to highlight some important aspects of the New Covenant for our consideration, so that we may not miss the "new and living way." May each one of us be stimulated by the Holy Spirit to go back and search these things out, so that the revelation of what God is doing in Jesus Christ may grow in our hearts. The faith that pleases God must have at its roots the living Word of God which abides forever. May our hearts be hungry to know God in fullness and to walk in His life, that we may glorify His Name.
