Why was the Old Covenant given? According to the Bible, because of sin. Find out what that means! Continue reading
Question: God commanded that no carved images were to be made (Exodus 20:4). Yet God told Moses to make a “serpent of brass” –or brazen serpent– (Numbers 21:9, KJV). Why? Continue reading
Few understand that God created humans to become like him, to become offspring, children, created in his likeness. This fact is reflected in the very first chapter of Genesis: Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness…. So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them” (Genesis 1:26-27).
But at that time, while human beings were created in the image of God in certain respects, their nature was not God’s nature. They did not have the mind nor the character of God. The love and the fullness of God was not in them.
Yet, to be ultimately filled with his love and the fullness of God was the purpose for which God created human beings. And you have the potential to begin fulfilling that purpose now, the very purpose for which you exist!
In this article is revealed the means by which you can experience the love and the fullness of God. Continue reading
Why does the Bible speak of the two covenants, or “testaments”?
Did God try one system and find that it didn’t work — so substituted another totally different system? Or did God give us an “Old Covenant” to show that man could not Live by His Law — then later substitute a new covenant of “grace” that required no obedience to law?
Is the “New Covenant” the very antithesis of all that the old Covenant stood for — as many assume?
Why did God give Israel the “Old Covenant”? Why did He later institute a “New Covenant”?
The true answers to these questions have been understood by very few — yet they are simple and plain.
Nothing is more essential to an understanding of true Christianity than a knowledge of the relationships between the two covenants. Millions have fallen prey to subtle satanic deceptions because they LACKED THIS UNDERSTANDING. Even some who have had a knowledge of true Christianity and have received the Holy Spirit have stumbled and FALLEN over a lack of understanding regarding this issue!
It may prove essential to your salvation that you gain a true knowledge and perspective of the relationship between the Old and New Covenants!
Because of the importance and complexity of this subject, this article presents the first in a series exploring the “two covenants,” that is, the Old and New Covenants, and the relationship between the two.
In the pledge of allegiance to the American flag is the statement that we are “one nation, under God.” But we have become a people, from the highest officials on down, who defy God. Our leaders, including the Supreme Court of the United States, have enacted laws which encourage and facilitate rebellion against God and his laws.
As a result we witness before us today an unraveling of civilized society that has been compared by some commentators with the collapse of the ancient Roman Empire (e.g., “Rome and America,” Kerby Anderson, www.probe.org; “Will America soon fall, just as Rome did?,” www.foxnews.com). The western world — especially the United States, Great Britain and most of Europe — is plunging into an abyss of moral decay and lawless indulgence which has truly frightening portents for the future.
