Disposition (s): There is no indication of this unconditional association of graces. God gives the promises and makes them fulfilled by the work of his faithful Son Jesus. Disposition (s): This was a conditional grace association. Israel should follow the terms enshrined in all the laws of Mount Sinai (grouped in the Ten Commandments). God promised to bring blessings if they followed His commandments, but if they did not obey (cf. Deuternomy 28), they would go into exile especially in foreign countries. (And we have the feeling in Deuteronomy 30:1 that the water is poisoned from the beginning.) Think about it – Jesus succeeded perfectly, at every point where people failed. This makes him the guarantor and mediator of the new and better alliance (see Hebrews 7:22 and 9:15). Now, the people of all nations, tribes and languages that are related to Jesus in faith are part of the family of God`s covenant and experience the rich blessings of the new covenant. Stipulation (s): Nothing. It is an unconditional covenant based on God`s promise never to destroy the world again until salvation is completed.
Signs: This could be a great discussion! But in Matthew 26:26-29 and Luke 22:19-22, Jesus associates his death with the new themes of exodus/new themes of the covenant, which are emphasized in Isaiah and Jeremiah. During Pentecost, the new themes of the alliance of Eseel 36 and Jeremiah 31 are activated. Thus, the death and resurrection of Jesus and the outpouring of the Spirit can be seen as signs of the new covenant. Situation: The covenant with Noah provided the circumstances in which redemption could come, but it was not redeeming in itself. Evil continued to reign over the world. Genesis 9-11 traces the downward spiral of humanity that reaches its apogee in the history of the Tower of Babel. There, men tried to overthrow God`s authority by building a new world center to rise above God. It was humanity`s way of giving the finger to God and revealing the nature of the human heart.
God scatters nations in judgment and we must ask ourselves: how will humanity be saved in the world?! But in a breathtaking act of grace, God chooses Abraham and calls him in a covenant relationship. Stipulation: Abraham will leave his country and follow God wherever he leads, walk perfectly before God and train his family to do the right and just, and maintain circumcision in each generation. It is both a conditional confederation and an unconditional confederation. God and man each have a role to play, but in the end, these promises will be fulfilled, because God will ensure that they happen. It`s important, isn`t it? That is why we will explore the main biblical covenants. But before we do that, we will stand up and think about what an « alliance » is and how the history of Confederation began. To see. You`ve been told you want to know the wedding rings. Arrangement (s): David and his descendants must remain faithful to God, walk in fidelity to the covenant and lead Israel in obedience to federal laws.
