Peter 1:12 (NRSV) Therefore
I intend to keep on reminding you of these things, though you know
them already and are established in the truth that has come to you.
Peter 1:12 (KJV) Wherefore
I will not be negligent to put you always in remembrance of these
things, though ye know them, and be established in the present
present truth – is that truth which is for us now; and if there is
a present truth, it means that there was a former truth - an
There are many covenants in the Bible:
Noahic Covenant – (Genesis 9:1-17
Abrahamic Covenant – (Genesis 12:3 and 15:5-6)
Mosaic Covenant – (Exodus 19-24)
Palestinian Covenant – (Deuteronomy 30:1-10)
Davidic Covenant – (2 Samuel 7:12-13, 1 Kings 9:4-9; 11:4-8; Psalms
2; 16; and 110)
The two covenants we'll focus on today are the
covenant of law, generally referred to as The Ten Commandments found
in Exodus 20 which stated:
the covenant of grace – The New Covenant states:
Bible is divided into two different categories – The Old Testament
and The New Testament – or New Covenant. The New Covenant
contains the covenant of grace
31:31 foretells of the New Covenant to come.
spells it out – a document it for all to read plainly:
now hath he obtained a more excellent ministry, by how much also he
is the mediator of a better covenant, which was established upon
He is Jesus. He and His Father (God – The Father) created this New
Covenant between the Father and Himself, in which man has no part,
except to believe and receive.
if that first covenant had been faultless, then should no place have
been sought for the second.
finding fault with them, he saith, Behold, the days come, saith the
Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and
with the house of Judah:
to Jeremiah 31:31
according 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 continued not in my covenant, and I regarded them not,
saith the Lord.
this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after
those days, saith the Lord; I will put my laws into their mind, and
write them in their hearts: and I will be to them a God, and they
shall be to me a people:
will make – Believers – the Body of Christ – The Church
will put – my laws into their hearts and write them in their hearts
will be – to them a God
they shall not teach every man his neighbor, and every man his
brother, saying, Know the Lord: for all shall know me, from the least
to the greatest.
when a person accepts Jesus as the Lord of their life, the Holy
Spirit comes to live on the inside of that person. Their
dead spirit is reborn unto the love of God.
I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their
iniquities will I remember no more.
will be – their redeemer from the curse of sin and remember their
sins and iniquities no more!
that he saith, A new covenant, he hath made the first old. Now that
which decayeth and waxeth old is ready to vanish away.
will put in their hearts the motivation – for
it is God who is at work in you, enabling you both to will and to
work for his good pleasure.
I will be their God and they shall be my
people. You will be different from the people of this world. If you
are sick, I will make you well. I will teach you and put My statues
in your heart. I will protect you.
A person who comes
to God through Jesus, must believe He is. It is Jesus who John
declares to be the Word made flesh. Therefore if Jesus is the Word
made flesh, we can transpose His name in John 1:1-3 and it would read
like this: In the beginning was Jesus, and Jesus was with God, and
Jesus was God (remember The Trinity). Jesus was in the beginning with
God. But you must believe in His Word.
you’re reading this, but you have not made Jesus the Lord of your
life, and would like to, pray this prayer out loud in an audible
Father, your Word says in Romans 10:9-10- “that if I confess with
my mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in my heart that You raised Him
from the dead, that I would be saved. For with the heart one believes
unto salvation.” I believe your Word, Heavenly Father, and confess
Jesus Christ (the anointed one and His anointing) as Lord of my life
now. I believe that You raised Him from the dead. I confess that I
was a sinner, but now I’ve been saved by Your grace, and in Your
thoughts, I am now in right standing with You. I denounce Satan and
all he stands for. In Jesus Name. Amen (so be it).
If this is your first time praying this prayer, please write and let
you decide to give and financially support this ministry with gifts
given in faith, I join my faith with yours to see the devour rebuked
(Malachi 3:11) and for you to receive a harvest; pressed down, shaken
together and running over (Luke 6:38). Please remember to name your
