The Two Covenants
The Lord our saviour is a God who has always had a covenant with His believers a covenant is a pact of sorts between two in which each party agrees to a certain set of guidelines by which they can interact.
However these sacrifices did not have the ability to remove sin altogether.
There for in the second covenant or new testament God gave man a gift of all gifts for the process of regeneration this gift was Christ who was the physical embodiment of God’s love for those who loved Him and it is through Christ that we sin can be removed.
Christ came to establish the second covenant through witch through His death and resurrection we are able to receive that which was lost in the days of Adam and Eve “the Holy Spirit” also through Christ’s death and resurrection we were given points of contact through which we can make homage to our Lord and saviour and are able to commune with Him.
\"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.\"
So if the second Covenant (new testament) was to be the goal of Gods plan for His believers why then did he give the First covenant (old testament)?
In the world when taught at school or college everything we learn is to enable us to efficiently function in the working environment with that which was learned.
However we cannot simply do anything without the proper knowledge of How to do it therefore we first learn the theory of what we need to be able to do and only after the theory is understood then we can be taught the practical application thereof.
So too with the effective worship of God according to His will.
These are the main facts outlaying the differences between the Old Testament and the New Testament which are actually the first and the second Covenant.
