Daily Fountain 2017 - The New Covenant






Friday January 20th

Bible Reading:     Heb. 9: 11 - 28

Topic:         The New Covenant

Yesterday, we saw that the Old Covenant with all its regulations could not deliver man from the power of sin and the devil.

This was because, not only were the Priests of the Covenant the incapacitated by sinfulness and weakness, the blood of animals could not take away sin permanently. At best they covered it before a Holy God and so they had to continually repeat the process.

The Good News is that there is a New Covenant with a new High Priest from Heaven.

He is the Lord Jesus Christ (John 3: 38). He is the Mediator of the New Covenant.

He did not enter the earthly Tabernacle in Jerusalem but the Heavenly Tabernacle made without hands. And He did not enter with the blood of animals but with His own Sinless Perfect Blood.

With His own Blood He atoned for the whole human race. God was pleased with this Sacrifice (Heb. 10: 5 - 16)

God would save as many as would identify with this atonement of the High Priest, Jesus the Son of God

Repent now from your sins. Give your life to Jesus, the High Priest and Mediator of the New Covenant.

He promised to save you and dwell in you (Matt. 11: 28 - 29; Rev. 3: 20)

There is no other sacrifice that can save anybody. Jesus is asking you to come to Him and be saved (Heb. 10: 26 - 31)

Prayer:
Thank You Jesus for dying for me. I acknowledge my hopelessness, I put my faith in You, make me Your Own, Amen

Memory verse:   Heb. 9: 22
"And almost all things are by law purged with blood and without shedding of blood is no remission."
