Psalms 25:14 – (Sameḵ) The secret of Yehovah is with those who fear Him, And He makes His covenant known to them.
Jeremiah 31:31-34 – “See, the days are coming,” declares Yehovah, “when I shall make a new covenant with the house of Yisra’ĕl and with the house of Yehuḏah, not like the covenant I made with their fathers in the day when I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Israel, My covenant which they broke, though I was a husband to them,” declares Yehovah. For this is the covenant I shall make with the house of Yisra’ĕl after those days, declares Yehovah, I shall put My Torah in their inward parts, and write it on their hearts. And I shall be their Elohim, and they shall be My people. And no longer shall they teach, each one his neighbour, and each one his brother, saying, ‘Know Yehovah’ for they shall all know Me, from the least of them to the greatest of them,” declares Yehovah “For I shall forgive their crookedness, and remember their sin no more.”
Please note what it actually says above in verse 34. There is no way we can actually be in the “new covenant” as so very many claim that we are in as believers and followers of Messiah Yeshua. I personally know many people who do not know Yehovah or His Mighty Son and Messiah, Yeshua.
And the verses from Jeremiah that follow proves that Israel has not been replaced as so many teach and preach in their churches. Last I checked the earth and the heavens still exist and follow the same rules they have followed since they were created.
Jeremiah 31:35-37 – Thus said who Yehovah, gives the sun for a light by day, and the laws of the moon and the stars for a light by night, who stirs up the sea, and its waves roar – Yehovah of hosts is His Name: If these laws vanish from before Me,” declares Yehovah “then the seed of Yisra’ĕl shall also cease from being a nation before Me forever.” Thus said Yehovah, “If the heavens above could be measured, and the foundations of the earth searched out beneath, I would also cast off all the seed of Yisra’ĕl for all that they have done,” declares Yehovah.
It amazes me how clear this is to me, yet I know so many that simply cannot see it even though it is right in front of them. It sadly reminds me of the story of Lazarus and the Rich Ruler burning by fire and he asked Abraham to send Lazarus to his brothers. Remember what Abraham said to the tormented rich ruler? “But he said to him, ‘If they do not hear Moses and the prophets, neither would they be persuaded even if one should rise from the dead.’ ” Luke 16:31
What is even sadder is that so many christians refuse to hear our Messiah when He says to obey Him because we love Him and to walk with Him as He walked. Even Paul says to we ought to walk as Yeshua walked. Yeshua is the first fruit of those who will rise on “that day”. And so many deny that He did not, in any way, shape or form, do away with the law given to Moses or the prophets. Christians claim that Yehovah / Yeshua knows their hearts. This is so very true, He does. And what does the Word say about the heart?
Let’s again go to a prophet, Jeremiah 17:9-10 says “The heart is crooked above all, and desperately sick – who shall know it?” and “I, Yehovah, search the heart, I try the kidneys, and give every man according to his ways, according to the fruit of his deeds.
The heart is what, crooked above all? Seriously and you want to trust and follow your heart to lead you in the paths of righteousness according to His desire? Really? Let me know how that works out for you on “that day”. Oh, and what are the deeds Yehovah looking for? Could it be “be doers of His Word (commandments) and not hearers only”?
Why oh why can’t you see? Why do you justify your “lawlessness”? Don’t you believe that you are truly “grafted in” with Israel? Which I know you don’t if you believe that Israel is done away with and you are its “righteous” replacement. If you were truly grafted in with Israel (not you who believe otherwise) then why don’t you also believe that the only law that was “nailed to the cross” is the law of sin and death? Paul was pretty clear on that. Yeshua’s blood washed us clean of our past sin. Not when we continue in the same sin. And I only know what is a sin according to His Word. It is the transgression of the law. Who’s law? Yehovah’s law given to / through Moses to the children of Israel who we are grafted in with. It is written in the Word which is usful for what? All Scripture is breathed by Elohim and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for setting straight, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of Elohim might be fitted, equipped for every good work. 2 Timothy3:16-17.
Bless you in Yehovahs name, shalom!
