Malachi 2:5-7 My covenant was with him of life and peace; and I gave them to him for the fear wherewith he feared me, and was afraid (yare-fear-reverence) before my name. 6The law (torah-teaching) of truth was in his mouth, and iniquity was not found in his lips: he walked with me in peace and equity, and did turn many away from iniquity. 7For the priest’s lips should keep knowledge, and they should seek the law (teaching) at his mouth: for he is the messenger of Yahuweh of hosts.
What is the difference between the covenants? Life and peace through obedience to Torah, teachings from God, that hasn’t changed! Yahushua was obedient unto death for us. He first loved us. By Him we may love God.
He was the perfect sacrifice. Hebrews 7:28
This is the shadow of things to come, fulfilled.
The only difference in the two covenants was now, God teaches you. The same promise of life and peace through obedience is required. We are obedient out of love for what our Messiah, our sacrifice holy unto Yahuweh offered for each of us that believe in Him, Yahuweh who saves, Yahushua.
Both covenants require obedience to the teachings of torah, Yahushua (Jesus) is Torah. To sanctify, purify one self we now take our offerings and sacrifices our prayers, to Him who sits at the right hand of the Father making intercession for us. The first tabernacle was made by man a tent movable. Now you are that holy place, made not by man but God born again buy the Spirit of truth. You have been given power just as the temple had the arc you have the Holy Spirit the presence of God. As they obeyed God in every preparation, we also are preparing ourselves by God’s direction called chastisement. Torah- teaching; chastisement- teaching, same method.
Hebrews 6:19-20 Which hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and stedfast, and which entereth into that within the veil; 20Whither the forerunner is for us entered, even Jesus, made an high priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec. Our High Priest!
Hebrews 7:15-16 And it is yet far more evident: for that after the similitude of Melchisedec there arise another priest, 16Who is made, not after the law of a carnal commandment, but after the power of an endless life.
Hebrews 10:19-25 Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Yahushua (Yahuweh who saves, Jesus), 20By a new and living way, which he hath consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh; 21And having an high priest over the house of God; 22Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water. 23Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;) 24And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works: 25Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.
Father let us continue as your priests with fear and understanding our need to intercede for one another and walk with a pure heart. Let your kingdom’s power be evident in us. Halle lu YAH
