 Old Covenant Law

Under the Old Covenant Law

Those that claim to be under the old Covenant law do not understand the new law of Christ.

Not only is the new law of Christ better, it also is the only one available, as the old has passed away. Any man in Christ is a new creation and all things have become new.

This new bottle then, refers to our vessel that the Holy Spirit can reside in. If we try and remain under the old Covenant law, the Holy Spirit is barred from entering in, and the end result is that of destruction. All in Christ are a new creation, through His Word of reconciliation (2 Cor 5:17-19; 2 Tim 2:21).

Jesus Christ has brought forth the new wine, which is the new covenant last. That which Christ supplies is available to all that ask (1 John 3:22).

Isaiah 65:8 Thus saith the LORD, As the new wine is found in the cluster, and one saith, Destroy it not; for a blessing is in it: so will I do for my servants’ sakes, that I may not destroy them all.

The old wine was available to those who were under the old Covenant law. The Old Testament Law was fulfilled by Christ on the Cross, and is finished (John 19:30).

Heb 8:13 In that he saith, A new covenant, he hath made the first old. Now that which decayeth and waxeth old is ready to vanish away.

No man also that drinks the old wine immediately is desirous of the new, for he reckons that the old is better (Luke 5:39).

Gal 3:2 This only would I learn of you, Received ye the Spirit by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith?

The second covenant was the Law of Christ written in the hearts of men, which represents Israel after the Spirit (Rom 11:26, Gal 6:15-16).

John 1:11-12 He came unto his own, and his own received him not. But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name.

Many who were under the old Covenant law refused the Messiah that the prophets spoke of (Mic 7:7, Zech 9:9, Isa 62:11).

Isaiah 9:6 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

Heb 8:6 But now hath he obtained a more excellent ministry, by how much also he is the mediator of a better covenant, which was established upon better promises.

Under the old Covenant law we see the Ten Commandments written on tablets of stone.

The new covenant law of Christ is available to all who call upon His name. This law is the Spirit of Christ unto life, with two commandments, that are written on men’s hearts and in their minds (Heb 10:16; Math 22:37-39).

Christ also came to redeem those who were under the old Covenant law, that they too might receive the adoption and be called the sons of God (Gal 4:5, Eph 1:15).

Romans 8:14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.

Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the old law, that the blessing of Abraham might be available to us all through the Lord Jesus.

This blessing is the promise of the Spirit through faith (Gal 3:7-14).

Gal 2:21 I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness is through the law, then Christ is dead in vain.

We are not under the Old Covenant law, but all may be covered by new law of Christ.

Mark 2:22 And no man putteth new wine into old bottles: else the new wine doth burst the bottles, and the wine is spilled, and the bottles will be marred: but new wine must be put into new bottles.

The New Testament Covenant has the saving blood of Christ. Those who were under the Old Covenant law only had a covering for sin, but the blood of Christ takes away sins.

Romans 11:27 For this is my covenant unto them, when I shall take away their sins.

Putting new wine into an old bottle will cause both to perish, because the old bottle is not designed for the new. Under the old Covenant law the temple of God was a building. Under the new Covenant law of Christ, we are the temple that he dwells in (1 Cor 3:16-17; 1 Cor 6:19).

  • Gal 3:2 This only would I learn of you, Received ye the Spirit by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith?

    The second covenant was the Law of Christ written in the hearts of men, which represents Israel after the Spirit (Rom 11:26, Gal 6:15-16).

    John 1:11-12 He came unto his own, and his own received him not. But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name.

    Many who were under the old Covenant law refused the Messiah that the prophets spoke of (Mic 7:7, Zech 9:9, Isa 62:11).

    Isaiah 9:6 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

    Heb 8:6 But now hath he obtained a more excellent ministry, by how much also he is the mediator of a better covenant, which was established upon better promises.

  • Jer 31:31 Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah.

    Christ our redeemer indeed had a most excellent ministry, and is the mediator of a superior covenant. Those who were under the Old Testament law were the Hebrews. With the arrival of Jesus came the New Testament promises to all of mankind.

    Jer 31:32 Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day [that] I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they brake, although I was an husband unto them, saith the LORD.

    Christ’s second covenant unto mankind was to take away their sins. Instead of allowing a covering for them as was the case under the old testament law, He became the final sacrifice, and is the law.

    None who are in Christ can be under the Old Testament law

    Jer 31:33 But this [shall be] the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people.

    This passage refers to the whole house of Israel which includes all believers in Christ. Those that truly embrace the words of the Lord Jesus are most definitely not under the Old Testament law. Those filled with the Holy Spirit are the Elect, chosen unto Christ. The promise of eternal life which is incorruption and immortality is the hope of the Spirit filled believer and is our assurance unto Salvation.

    Isa 51:4 Hearken unto me, my people; and give ear unto me, O my nation: for a law shall proceed from me, and I will make my judgment to rest for a light of the people.

    Isa 51:6 Lift up your eyes to the heavens, and look upon the earth beneath: for the heavens shall vanish away like smoke, and the earth shall wax old like a garment, and they that dwell therein shall die in like manner: but my salvation shall be for ever, and my righteousness shall not be abolished.

    Isa 51:7 Hearken unto me, ye that know righteousness, the people in whose heart is my law; fear ye not the reproach of men, neither be ye afraid of their revilings.

    Isaiah is referring to the followers of Jesus, who is God manifest in the flesh. It is and will always be Christ Jesus that men despise. Those who are void of the truth that only comes through Christ, serve their father the devil, and share in his hatred of the Lamb of God that takes away the sins of the world.

    Isaiah prophesizes of a people that would know the new law of Christ and it would be in their hearts and minds. Those who follow the New Testament law of Jesus are not under the Old Testament law , and at the last day receive redemption at the second coming of Jesus.

    Isa 51:11 Therefore the redeemed of the LORD shall return, and come with singing unto Zion; and everlasting joy [shall be] upon their head: they shall obtain gladness and joy; and sorrow and mourning shall flee away.

    under the old testament law

    This is the second gathering of the true Israel of God. This is the church of Jesus Christ, and is a future prophecy yet to happen.

    James 1:25 But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.

  • When we bear one another’s burdens, we fulfill the law of Christ (Gal 6:2).

    Six of the commandments under the old law were unto doing no harm to others. The commandment of Loving others is much greater than these.

    The second commandment of the new the law of Christ is fulfilled in this; thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself (Gal 5:14). This was not realized by most under the Old Testament law, as it was spiritually discerned.

    Gal 5:4 Christ is become of no effect unto you, whosoever of you are justified by the law; ye are fallen from grace.

    We are not under the Old Testament law, but the law of Christ’s grace. To claim to be under the Old Testament law when we have access to the new law of Christ, is self righteousness unto death.

    Gal 5:6 For in Jesus Christ neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision; but faith which worketh by love.

    Those of the religions of judaism and christianity, who claim to be under the Old Testament law do not have a personal relationship with the creator Christ the King.

    To claim righteousness by attempting to follow the works of the law without faith was and still is dead works.

    Gal 5:18 But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law.

    We need to be led by the spirit of truth, which declares that we are not under the Old Testament law of bondage, but the law of Christ wherein we can have liberty.

    Gal 6:15 For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision, but a new creature.

    Again it is not at all about religious persuasions or doctrines of men, but a new life in Christ. This can only be understood by those who are taught of the Holy Spirit, which is given to the faithful who come to Jesus as little children.

    Gal 6:16 And as many as walk according to this rule, peace be on them, and mercy, and upon the Israel of God.

    The Israel of God represents all believers who are in Christ.

  • Mr truthproject

    Have you ever looked up the word “law” in Jeremiah 31: 33 ?

    It is “Torah”; under the new contract i.e covenant, God is making HIS TORAH our nature.

    Why would God dump His Law that is Holy, Just and Good and then turn around and make it our nature??

    You are just a little off on that truth claim.

    Did you know the Torah is so HOLY Moses placed it next to the 2 tables of stone in the Arc of the Covenant which is under the mercy seat i.e the throne of God the Father and both the arc and the mercy seat are in the Holy of Holies??

    So according to you God cast aside something that Holy? Impossible !!!
