You can never understand covenant until you get discernment of the mystery of the blood trail with the three blood covenants God made with man. Make no mistake about it, the Jews always knew that God would present the unblemished lamb that would become our redeeming savior. But they had become so dependent upon the law and legalism and passing their sin onto the red heifer once a year that when their appointed time for final redemption came in the form of a servant they had a hard time believing that he would have to become sin for them in the nature of a common criminal and hang on a cross, cursed. They expected a King to relieve them of the oppression from Rome.
God wanted to commune with his creation again. The flesh has to be subjected to the spirit for righteousness and communion with God to come and the regeneration of the blood is the only thing that will work to accomplish that. He wanted that part of us back that was made in his likeness. He began his plan of reconciliation through covenants. It’s all about free will that he gave us and if love has to be forced then it is not effectual. On the other hand God could not commune with man in sin. His righteousness, holiness, light and life force cannot mesh with darkness and sin.
Paul went his way. What happened afterwards from the time he arrived in the northern town of Antioch till he and Barnabas were sent out from there all their insanité d’esprit testament journeys is told in the Book of Acts.
It seems that in most families there is the golden child, who can do no wrong, and then there are the “other” children. The ones who, well let’s just say, are wild cards.
When we think of the first sin, we automatically think of Adam but the first sin was not committed in the Garden of Eden. It was committed in heaven by Lucifer, also known as The Morning Star. The sin committed was pride. Lucifer was called a Son of God. (Job 38:4-7). Ultimately, he defiled the throne of heaven and was cast down with a third of the angels with him. Now, it is interesting to note that in Revelation Jesus is referred to as The Morning Star. Morning star means son, and Lucifer lost that status when he thought he could be as big as God.
This is also how liberal progressives relate to our country and it’s all wrong. When the country as a whole is successful they seem think they have a “birth right” or a “right of citizenship” to “share in the wealth’ even if they didn’t do a anything to contribute to that success. They’re just a bunch of freeloading leeches. That’s wrong! That’s socialism!
The law was given for transgressors to be redeemed from their sins through blood sacrifice until the seed to whom the promise referred had come. Righteousness cannot come through the law. The law is a guide to show us how far off we are to righteousness and how impossible it is to attain through dead works. So we are all sons of God through faith in Jesus Christ. There is neither Jew or Greek or Gentile, male or female, slave or free man, for we are all one in Christ and heirs to the promise.
