Don't Be Mixed Up, You are Fore-Given
Adonai told Jeremiah that the days would come when He would make a new covenant with the whole house of Israel, and that this new covenant would not be according to the old one that framed evil via the written laws of Moses.
Jeremiah 31:31 "Behold the days come when I shall make a new covenant with the house of Israel and the house of Judah. Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day I took them out of Egypt, which covenant they broke.
Effectively, the written laws of Moses were never expected to be an eternal covenant. Perhaps because of the actual impossibility of even the best intending men, to fully keep all these laws all the time. Perhaps these laws of the former covenant were only meant to bring us to this new covenant of which Jeremiah was informed would some day come Israel's way.
This new covenant was fore-told to be one by which the G-d of Israel freely forgives all the sin and wrong doing of the inevitable transgressors of these external set of Mosiaic laws, regardless of you status or sin. This is what "fore"giveness means. To be given before you earn or deserve it.
The old covenant was in total opposition to this fore told new covenant. In order for you to see G-d's goodness, you had to first to good. However, those days are now suppose to be over, and a new eternal, faultless covenant of grace taking its place.
This new covenant more accurately reflects the heart of the grace-filled heavenly Father as one that gives freely first to His children, who then in return learn His greatest attribute. Once we truly experience His grace we also gain the ability to forgive others and can finally become friends to G-d and His creation.
However, most sin prone people are afraid to draw near to Him. Perhaps this is the one true sin of the religious self righteous that have falsely represented that the breakers of Moses' laws are condemned of G-d. False, not true
This is a classic religious mistake that is not in keeping with the new covenant of which Jeremiah was foretold would come. Ironically, much of Christianity who say they believe in the new covenant are also very prone to lean back into the condemnation of these old laws of the previous covenant. These new covenant beneficiaries should not mix the old and the new together. You cant expect the old wine-skins to contain this new wine. As born again new covenant Christians, we must never return to an expired and faulty covenant. That just mixes up everyone. Let forgiveness be the one and only eternal covenant by which we all can see and know Israel's God from this day on.
Jeremiah 31:34 "...for they shall all know me, from the least to the greatest, says Adonai: For I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more."
Yeshua single handedly kept all the laws of Moses and then was crucified as a transgressor of these laws in order to instate the new order of G-d giving to you first. All you have to do now to enter into this new covenant with G-d is to accept this free gift of grace. Simply pray this way:
Yeshua, I accept you as G-d's gift of grace and ask you to forgive me all my sin and come in to my heart.
