And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel. Hebrews 12:24
Why is the New Covenant a better covenant than the Old Covenant? Its very simple, its all because of Jesus. In the Old Covenant God revealed his Law, which is a reflection of Gods holiness, and nobody could fulfill The Law. When we measured ourselves against The Law, we realized how short we have fallen as people.
Even Moses, who was the Mediator for the Old Covenant, fell short and wasn’t even allowed to see the Promise Land. But Jesus is the perfect sinless Son of God, He was able to fulfill The Law (Matthew 5:17) He is our Mediator between God and Man. Because of Christ and The New Covenant , we are justified and declared righteous before God
See that ye refuse not him that speaketh. For if they escaped not who refused him that spake on earth, much more shall not we escape, if we turn away from him that speaketh from heaven: Whose voice then shook the earth: but now he hath promised, saying, Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven. Hebrews 12:25-26
Woe to them who refuse to Repent and make Jesus their Lord, for if your not under grace you are under The Law. The wages of our sin is death, nobody shall escape the wrath of God except by the blood of Jesus Christ
And this word, Yet once more, signifieth the removing of those things that are shaken, as of things that are made, that those things which cannot be shaken may remain. Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear For our God is a consuming fire. Hebrews 12:27-29
Jesus provided to us an unshakable Kingdom. A Kingdom that is eternal and will never fail. All of this was only possible because Jesus loved us and died for our sins. Our God is a consuming fire! You don’t want to fall into the hands of the Living God without being washed by the blood of Christ
As Moses trembled at Mt Sinai, the Fear of God will save your life. If you want to get right with God, you need Jesus Christ! Amen!
