God's New Covenant

Please notice that I don't expound on what is written in the Bible, instead I simply list Scripture references so that the reader can read them to find out what is said. By reading these Scriptures yourself you will find out how easy it is to understand what God says.

You don't need an expert to tell what they say, the Holy Spirit will speak to you as you read Scripture. After all, the Holy Spirit is the author of the Bible, and if you are born again, He is in your life. 
According to Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit was sent into our lives to guide us into the truth of God's word, to show things yet to come, and to help us understand all that God has freely given us in this New Covenant.

Who is included in God's New Covenant?  Those who accept His Once For All Atoning Sacrifice -- Jesus Christ

  • The LORD confides in those who fear Him; He makes His covenant known to them -- Psalm 25:14

What is God’s New Covenant? This New Covenant is all about Jesus Christ: what God has done through Christ and what He is doing for those who have faith in Jesus Christ.

What God has done through Jesus Christ:

Christ did not enter a man-made sanctuary that was only a copy of the true one; He entered heaven itself, now to appear FOR US in God's presence. Nor did He enter heaven to offer Himself again and again, the way the high priest enters the Most Holy Place every year with the blood that is not His own. Then Christ would have had to suffer many times since the creation of the world. But now He has appeared Once For All at the end of the ages TO DO AWAY WITH SIN BY THE SACRIFICE OF HIMSELF. Just as man is destined to die once, and after that to face judgment, so Christ WAS SACRIFICED ONCE to take away the sins of many people; and He will appear a second time, NOT TO BEAR SIN, but to bring salvation TO THOSE WHO ARE WAITING FOR HIM -- Hebrews  9:24-28

The Apostle Paul who wrote most of the New Covenat letters is speaking: "I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God for salvation OF EVERYONE WHO BELIEVES: first for the Jew, then for the Gentile. FOR IN THE GOSPEL A RIGHTEOUSNESS FROM GOD IS REVEALED, A RIGHTEOUSNESS THAT IS BY FAITH FROM FIRST TO LAST, just as it is written: The righteous will live by faith" -- Romans 1:16-17

No one will be declared righteous in His sight by observing the law; rather, through the law we become conscious of sin. But now a righteousness from God, apart from law, has been made known, to which the Law and the Prophet's testify. THIS RIGHTEOUSNESS FROM GOD COMES THROUGH FAITH IN JESUS CHRIST TO ALL WHO BELIEVE. THERE IS NO DIFFERENCE, FOR ALL HAVE SINNED AND FALL SHORT OF THE GLORY OF GOD, AND ARE JUSTIFIED BY HIS GRACE  THROUGH THE REDEMPTION THAT CAME BY CHRIST JESUS. God presented Him as a sacrifice or atonement, through faith in His Blood -- Romans 3:20-25

God credits His righteousness to us who believe in Him who raised Jesus our Lord from the dead. He was delivered over to death for our sins and was raised to life for our justification -- Romans 4:18-25

When anyone does not know about the righteousness that comes from God they seek to establish their own righteousness, they do not submit to God's righteousness. Christ is the end of the law SO THAT THERE MAY BE RIGHTEOUSNESS FOR EVERYONE WHO BELIEVES -- ROMANS 10:3-4

When does a person enter into God’s New Covenant?

When you were dead in your sins and in the uncircumcision of your sinful nature, God made you alive with Christ. He forgave us ALL OUR SINS, HAVING CANCELED THE WRITTEN CODE, WITH ITS REGULATIONS, THAT WAS AGAINST US AND THAT STOOD OPPOSED TO US; HE TOOK IT AWAY, NAILING IT TO THE CROSS --- Colossians 2:13-14

And you also were included in Christ WHEN you HEARD THE WORD OF TRUTH, THE GOSPEL OF YOUR SALVATION. HAVING BELIEVED you were marked IN HIM with a seal, the PROMISED Holy Spirit, who is a deposit guaranteeing our inheritance until the redemption of those who are God's possession -- Ephesians 1:13-14

Now it God who makes both us and you stand firm IN CHRIST. HE SET HIS SEAL OF OWNERSHIP ON US, AND PUT HIS SPIRIT IN OUR HEARTS AS A DEPOSIT, GUARANTEEING WHAT IS TO COME --- 2 Corinthians 1:21-22

It is because of God that we are included in Christ, who has become for us wisdom from God -- that is, our righteousness, our holiness, our redemption, the forgiveness of sins --  1 Corinthians 1:30

What Jesus Christ is doing for those have faith in Him: 

Since we have now been justified BY HIS BLOOD, how much more SHALL WE BE SAVED from God's wrath through Him! For if, when we were God's enemies, WE WERE RECONCILED TO HIM THROUGH THE DEATH OF HIS SON, HOW MUCH MORE, HAVING BEEN RECONCILED, SHALL WE BE SAVED THROUGH HIS LIFE! -- Romans 5:9-10

For if, by the trespass of the one man, death reigned through that one man, how much more will  those who receive God's 1) abundant provision of grace, and 2) the gift of righteousness reign in life THROUGH THE ONE MAN, JESUS CHRIST -- Romans 5:17

The  Son is the radiance of God's glory and the exact representation of His being, sustaining all things by HIS POWERFUL WORD. AFTER HE HAD PROVIDED PURIFICATION FOR SINS, HE SAT DOWN AT THE RIGHT HAND OF THE MAJESTY IN HEAVEN -- Hebrews 1:3

Because Jesus lives forever, He has a permanent priesthood.  Therefore He is able TO SAVE COMPLETELY THOSE WHO COME TO GOD THROUGH HIM, BECAUSE HE ALWAYS LIVES TO INTERCEDE FOR THEM -- Romans 7:25

My dear children, I write this to you so that you will not sin. But if anyone does sin, we have one who speaks to the Father in our defense -- Jesus Christ, The Righteousness One. He is the atoning sacrifice for our sins, and not only ours but also for the sins of the whole world -- 1 John 2:1-2

We give thanks to the Father, who has qualified each of us to share in the inheritance of the saints in the kingdom of light. For He has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son He loves, IN WHOM WE HAVE REDEMPTION, the forgiveness of sins -- Colossians 1:12-14

And having disarmed the powers and authorities, He made  a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the cross -- Colossians 2:15

And what is the result of God’s New Covenant?

Now, because of what God has done for us through Christ, we can count ourselves dead to sin but alive to God. . . Sin shall not be our master, because we are not under law, but under grace -- Romans 6:11-14

I admit it, I’m a sinner, please forgive my sins, and I ask you to come into my life, I want to be born again. Save me Jesus. I don't understand it, but please save me Jesus. Please show me how real you are! Also baptize me with your Holy Spirit; I want everything you have for me. Thank you for accepting me.”

God's New Covenant is a free gift purchased for you by the sacrifice of His Son Jesus Christ.
