The ultimate outcome of the covenant does not depend on Israel but on God and his faithfulness
This week will be the conclusion of the series on the New Covenant and the Kingdom offer.
The whole matter will come back to Moab.
In 2 Macc 2.1-8 it says that Jeremiah is the Mishkan (tabernacle) at Mt. Nebo.
Many have heard about this when they study about where the Ark of the Covenant may be.
But, nobody talks about why he picked Mt. Nebo in Moab!
Because, according to Jeremiah, God was going to place that same law in our hearts someday, just like Jeremiah was placing the Covenant in the "heart" of the mountain in Moab where the New Covenant was described in Deut. 29.1-30.20.
Again, there is a connection between Moab and the Covenant with Moses.
According to this book, the Mishkan (tabernacle) and all its items will be revealed to the world at the re-gathering of Israel, another element of the New Covenant.
So, let’s review a few things.
There are two covenants in the Torah.
The New Covenant at Moab is distinguished from the "curse" of the Mosaic covenant.
This new Covenant is tied to the work of the Messiah, or Yeshua.
This New Covenant involves a change in the heart, or desires, and involves the Holy Spirit to guide us in these desires to observe the Torah.
This covenant has been offered to Israel collectively on at least three occasions.
The first was in Deut 29.1, upon entering the land.
The second when returning to the land in Jer. 29.10, 31.30 and the third in the first century with the coming of Yeshua (Mt 26.27-29).
While Israel may not collectively enter this covenant until Yeshua returns, individual people may enter early by becoming citizens of a Kingdom not yet established on earth.
The New Covenant is God writing His Torah on our hearts.
He did this by the work of Yeshua and the blood He shed on the cross as the pure "seed of the father" (Moab).
This fulfills the promise to Abraham about how his "seed" (singular in Hebrew- Gal 3.16) would "bless the nations" (Gen 12.1-3).
The Holy Spirit was poured out in Acts 2 on Israel and Acts 10 on the Gentiles.
This covenant was cut and ratified like the covenant with Abraham and the covenant at Sinai, not with the blood of bulls, sheep, goats or birds, but with the pure blood of Yeshua.
This covenant is repeated in Ezek. 36.22-38.
The ultimate outcome of the covenant does not depend on Israel or their obedience like the covenant at Sinai (Heb 8.7-8), but on God and his faithfulness.
As you can see, these concepts are very foreign to most reading this because it is not taught.
What is usually taught is a remanufactured "New Covenant" made in man’s image and according to the bias of whatever religious institution that does not want to comply with what God has already said about it and gave to Israel.
I hope this helps.
