3 Deuteronomy God had: Provided Brought them out of Egypt Protected and provided in the wilderness 40 years Their clothes and sandals did not wear out IF THEY OBEYED: God would bless them Set them high above all nations Establish them as a holy people to Himself Multiply and protect them Inflict curses on their enemies Give rain on their land and bless the work of their hands

4 Context of the promises Nation of Israel was split into two kingdoms Northern = Israel Ten tribes Southern = Judah – Two tribes Benjamin and Judah Israel fell to Assyria in 722 B.C. Jerusalem destroyed in 586 B.C. by Babylon All they had to do was obey Him and walk in His ways

5 Promises of the New Covenant Jeremiah 31 The New Covenant is for the future of Israel and Judah Not like the Old Covenant Promised to put His Law within them Write it on their hearts He will be their God and they will be His people They will ALL know Him He will forgive their iniquity and remember their sins no more Israel will never cease from being nation This Covenant is everlasting

6 Promises of the New Covenant Jeremiah 32 God promised to gather Israel from the nations where He had scattered them In the future, Israel will be safe dwelling in their land He will give them one heart and one way He will not turn away from them This Covenant is everlasting The land and the nation are connected

7 Jeremiah 17:9 The heart is deceitful and desperately wicked; who can know it? God promised to write His Law: ON their hearts and IN their minds In the New Covenant their hearts will no longer be deceitful hearts. Why? My heart is now indwelt by the Holy Spirit

8 Ezekiel Ezekiel 11:13-21 Question: Will you completely destroy the remnant of Israel? God said He would gather them from the nations Give them the land Give them one heart Put a new spirit within them Replace their heart of stone with a heart of flesh They will walk in His statutes and keep His ordinances In the New Covenant there will be obedience to the Lord because of the new condition of the heart

9 Ezekiel Ezekiel 36:24-28 When the Lord gathers Israel to their land, THEN He will cleanse them from their filthiness and idols Give them a new heart and spirit Put His Spirit within them and CAUSE them to obey Him They WILL live in the land, be His people and He their God

10 New Testament Eph. 2:11-22 Gentiles were strangers to the covenants in previous times Separated from the Messiah Without God in the world Without Hope NOW: No longer strangers, but fellow citizens Brought near to the Messiah Eph. 3:4-6 Mystery: Gentiles are fellow heirs and partakers of the promise through the gospel of Jesus Christ

11 New Testament Romans, John and Matthew The gospel first went to the Jews They were the original heirs of the promise Hebrews 8 Jesus is our high priest, seated at the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in the heavens Jesus had a more excellent ministry Jesus is the Mediator of a better Covenant Founded on Better Promises Jesus inaugurated the New Covenant

12 New Covenant New: Kainos – new as opposed to old or former and hence also implying better because it’s different. The New Covenant is Salvation The blood of Jesus draws Gentiles near as well as Jews The Holy Spirit indwells those believing in Him There is forgiveness of sins and an ability to obey God
