Does your mind always keep coming back to Hebrews 10:29 ?
How many times have you seen theological Christians speak with disdain about The Covenant?
But Hebrews 10:29 says Messiah was sanctified by the blood of The Covenant.
Messiah had to be sanctified by the blood of The Covenant BEFORE he went to the cross. Otherwise, he is not qualified.
So, how did Messiah get sanctified? By keeping Torah. Period.
The only people, in this life, who are ever sanctified are those that keep The Sabbath and all THE LAW. That is what Messiah did and Paul says we are to be his image. And the scripture says he is the image of YHVH God the Father.
I don’t know about you but when I look in the mirror the only thing I want to see is Messiah and his Father. The only way to do that is to keep The Sabbath and all THE LAW.
Did the sacrifice on the Day of Atonement apply to Messiah? You bet it did.
Did Passover apply to Messiah? You bet it did.
If those sacrifices and offerings did not sanctify Messiah then he is not Messiah!
Messiah ate the Passover on the 13th of the first month, unlike those in Judaism, and then he was taken, beaten, and killed.
There was never a Commandment from his Father YHVH that Messiah did not do and that includes all the steps in Torah that ensure sanctification. Without all those steps, no one is sanctified. I should say without the absolute intent to complete all those steps no one is sanctified. Why the clarification? Well, the thief on the cross repented while he was on the cross and he kept Torah while he was on the cross by defending his Messiah and if that thief could have gotten down from that cross then he would have kept all THE LAW of his Messiah and Father. But, this thief’s hours were numbered but he used them well in keeping Torah on the cross and defending those who are down trodden and poor and defenseless. That is what The Word says to DO.
Let’s read them backwards!
29 Of how much worse punishment, do you suppose, will he be thought worthy who has trampled the Son of God underfoot, counted the blood of the covenant by which he was sanctified a common thing, and insulted the Spirit of FAVOR?
28 Anyone who has rejected Moses’ law dies without mercy on the testimony of two or three witnesses.
26 For if we sin willfully after we have received the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, 27 but a certain fearful expectation of judgment, and fiery indignation which will devour the adversaries.
Hebrews 26 goes straight to the teaching in Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy that there is NO SACRIFICE for intentional sin.
That is WHY we are supposed to be always humble in everything concerning how we live and always humble to learn all the scriptures with all knowledge and not trample THE WORD (the Son of God) underfoot.
There are 2 everlasting covenants.
The first everlasting Covenant is prior to The Judgment.
The second Everlasting Covenant AKA the New Covenant of Jeremiah 31 is for those who pass The Judgment.
Jeremiah 32:40 refers to the second EVERLASTING COVENANT and notice the qualifications:
40 And I will make an everlasting covenant with them, that I will not turn away from doing them good; but I will put My fear in their hearts so that they will not depart from Me.
YHVH through Jeremiah is showing the legal clauses of the New Covenant in that He will not turn from doing them good.
Notice in Jeremiah 31 New Covenant once again the legal clause shows us what YHVH does:
33 But this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says YHVH: I will put My law in their minds, and write it on their hearts; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people.
YHVH does all the writing and putting. This is after The Judgment and His People have passed The Judgment.
It has to be AFTER The Judgment because YHVH says this:
34 No more shall every man teach his neighbor, and every man his brother, saying, ‘Know YHVH,’ for they all shall know Me, from the least of them to the greatest of them, says YHVH. For I will forgive their iniquity, and their sin I will remember no more.”
Does YHVH to this very day still remember sin?
You bet He does and every book from Matthew through Revelation screams it loudly.
The only time YHVH will not remember sin anymore is AFTER The Judgment.
WHY? Because there exists no more sin after The Judgment.
Elementary dear Watson…
That is Revelation 21 and those who pass The Judgment, YHVH takes them, writes His LAW into their hearts, puts His LAW into their minds, and never ever again turns away from doing them good.
Then, as we read in Revelation 21 the earth and heaven pass away, then there is a new earth and new heaven and the New Jerusalem comes down as a bride adorned for her husband.
A bride adorned for her husband…
2 In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.
That place is the New Jerusalem where The Bride lives.
The Bride is/are the ones who keep The Sabbath and all THE LAW just like Isaiah says:
6 “Also the sons of the Gentile
Who join themselves to YHVH, to serve Him,
And to love the name of YHVH, to be His servants
Everyone who keeps from defiling the Sabbath,
And holds fast My covenant
7 Even them I will bring to My holy mountain,
And make them joyful in My house of prayer.
Their burnt offerings and their sacrifices
Will be accepted on My altar;
For My house shall be called a house of prayer for all nations.”
Christian theologians who cannot read as good as 5th graders threw out most of Jeremiah 30, 31, and 32 and decided despite all the prerequisites they would give the people their own special “new covenant” created by theologians and ignoring all the events YHVH says must take place before any New Covenant is established.
They just jumped thousands of years of history and threw out YHVH’s WORD/Commandments and claimed heaven for themselves:
12 And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffers violence, and the violent take it by force.
Nobody gets into YHVH’s Kingdom taking it by force. The only ones who get in are those who obey His Commandments.
