New Covenant & The Law


The New Covenant Occurs in Heaven - It was NOT During the Messiah's Ministry


We've been told incessantly that the "New Covenant" took place during the Last Supper the Messiah had with His Apostles - but this is not the case. Keep in mind the Messiah NEVER contradicts the Word of the Father or the Prophets in the "Old Testament" on the contrary - He ALWAYS fulfills it. 

First, let's understand the definition of "Covenant" as it applies to the Bible:

Bible.

  1. the conditional promises made to humanity by God, as revealed in Scripture.
  2. the agreement between God and the ancient Israelites, in which God promised to protect them if they kept His
    law and were faithful to 
    Him.

Now let's look at what the Prophet Jeremiah states:

"Behold, days are coming," declares the LORD, "when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah,
 32not like the covenant which I made with their fathers in the day I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt, My covenant which they broke, although I was a husband to them," declares the LORD. 33"But this is the covenant which I will make with the house of Israel after those days," declares the LORD, "I will put MY LAW  (TORAH) within them and on their heart I will write it; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people. 
34"They will not teach again, each man his neighbor and each man his brother, saying, 'Know the LORD,' for they will all know Me, from the least of them to the greatest of them," declares the LORD, "for I will forgive their iniquity, and their sin I will remember no more."   Jeremiah 31:31-34


The above clearly proves that the New Covenant could ONLY be in the Kingdom of Heaven and furthermore, the Most High clearly states He will put HIS LAW within His Set-Aside Saints. The New Covenant never happened during the 1st Century. The house of Israel and Judah is spread throughout the world, many if not most are sinning keeping other pagan religions. The forgiveness and forgetting of sins takes place in the Kingdom of Heaven.


The Messiah Keeps the New Covenant in Heaven 

With the above firmly established, we now put in perspective the Words of the Messiah to His Apostles at the Last Supper:

27And when He had taken a cup and given thanks, He gave it to them, saying, "Drink from it, all of you; 28for this is My blood of the covenant (the Covenant with the House of Israel), which is poured out for many for forgiveness of sins (as the Most High states in Jeremiah 31). 29"But I say to you, I will not drink of this fruit of the vine from now on until that day WHEN I DRINK IT NEW (the New Covenant is established) WITH YOU IN MY FATHER'S KINGDOM."  
                                                                                                                                                                                                   Matthew 26:
28

The above is confirmed in Revelation 1:5


CONCLUSION

The Messiah is saying that the wine is the figurative blood that must pour out for the house of Israel and Judah as it was for the lambs during the Passover - in fulfillment of the Covenant the Most High has with His set-apart ones whose sins shall Elohim remember no more (Jeremiah 31:31-34). The Messiah confirms He will not drink of the vine with them UNTIL They are in His Father's kingdom which is when the New Covenant occurs.

Furthermore, one other thing is plainly obvious from Jeremiah's scripture - THE LAW will be within and in the hearts of the Father's people. Clearly EVERYONE in Heaven will be keeping the TORAH of Elohim.
