To rightly divide the Word of God is critical to truly understand Christianity and the Christians’ relationship to the Father under the Holy Spirits’ revelation of the New Covenant.
Until a Christian comprehends the profound change that God brought about through Christ by abolishing the Old Covenant, he can not appreciate all that Christ is and what He has accomplished on behalf of the New Covenant Christian.
2Ti 2:15 Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
Heb 10:15 But the Holy Spirit also witnesses to us; for after He had said before,
Heb 10:16 “THIS IS THE COVENANT THAT I WILL MAKE WITH THEM AFTER THOSE DAYS, SAYS THE LORD:
I WILL PUT MY LAWS INTO THEIR HEARTS, AND IN THEIR MINDS I WILL WRITE THEM,”
Heb 10:17 then He adds, “THEIR SINS AND THEIR LAWLESS DEEDS I WILL REMEMBER NO MORE.”
Heb 10:18 Now where there is remission of these, there is no longer an offering for sin.
Heb 10:19 Therefore, brethren, having boldness to enter the Holiest by the blood of Jesus,
Heb 10:20 by a new and living way which He consecrated for us, through the veil, that is, His flesh,
Heb 10:21 and having a High Priest over the house of God,
Heb 10:22 let 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.
Heb 7:12 For the priesthood being changed, of necessity there is also a change of the law.
Heb 7:15 And it is yet far more evident if, in the likeness of Melchizedek, there arises another priest
Heb 7:16 who has come, not according to the law of a fleshly commandment, but according to th
e power of an endless life.
Heb 7:17 For He testifies: “YOU ARE A PRIEST FOREVER ACCORDING TO THE ORDER OF MELCHIZEDEK.”
Heb 7:18 For on the one hand there is an annulling of the former commandment because of its
weakness and unprofitableness,
Heb 7:19 for the law made nothing perfect; on the other hand, there is the bringing in of a better hope,
through which we draw near to God.
Heb 7:20 And inasmuch as He was not made priest without an oath
Heb 7:21 (for they have become priests without an oath, but He with an oath by Him who said to Him:
“THE LORD HAS SWORN AND WILL NOT RELENT, ‘YOU ARE A PRIEST FOREVER ACCORDING TO THE ORDER OF MELCHIZEDEK’ “),
Heb 7:22 by so much more Jesus has become a surety of a better covenant.
Heb 7:23 Also there were many priests, because they were prevented by death from continuing.
Heb 7:24 But He, because He continues forever, has an unchangeable priesthood.
Heb 7:25 Therefore He is also able to save to the uttermost those who come to God through Him,
since He always lives to make intercession for them.
Heb 7:26 For such a High Priest was fitting for us, who is holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners,
and has become higher than the heavens;
Heb 7:27 who does not need daily, as those high priests, to offer up sacrifices, first for His own sins and
then for the people’s, for this He did once for all when He offered up Himself.
Heb 7:28 For the law appoints as high priests men who have weakness, but the word of the oath,
which came after the law, appoints the Son who has been perfected forever.
Until the Holy Spirit contrasted for me the life of the Old Covenant believer with the life
of the New Covenant believer through the book of Hebrews then and only then was I able to fully
understand the majesty, supremacy and uniqueness of all that Christ did for me.
Purpose: To learn through Scripture alone the difference between the life of the Old Covenant believer
with the life of the New Covenant believer by means of Christ annulling the Old Covenant.
