Big Picture Covenant Transition


Changing Ages=Changing Relationship=Good News

Eschatology is related to soteriology-salvation.
Both tell us where we stand with God and where we are in Redemption History.

What the Spirit in the Old Testament Concealed-The Spirit in the New Testament Revealed & Fulfilled -Acts 3:24.

A contrast of Covenants and Ages is an important key to understanding the New Testament.
1st the Natural then the Spiritual.

The Spiritual NEVER points back to the Natural.

1 Cor.15:46 “But the spiritual was not first; rather the natural and then the spiritual.

*Law is Mediator.
*This Age.
*Earthly Jerusalem.
*Old Heaven and Earth.
*Body of Adam.
*In the Sin of Adam.
*In the Death of Adam.
*Law temporarily covers sin.
*Temple, Blood Sacrifices.
*Obedience or Abandonment.
*Last days of the End of Old Covenant Israel.
*Earthy, Natural, Perishable.

*Jesus is the Mediator.
*Age to Come.
*Freedom & Grace.
*Heavenly Jerusalem.
*New Heaven and Earth.
*Body of Christ.
*In the Resurrection Life of Christ.
*In the Righteousness of Christ.
*People are Temple.
*Jesus Permanently Covers Sin.
*Praise is Sacrifice
*God’s Presence WITH us and IN us Forever.
*Unto Him be Glory in the Church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.

So where are we today in redemptive history?
You are in the Kingdom of God- The New Covenant Nation of Jesus Followers that has no end.

Mt.21:43” Therefore say I unto you, the kingdom of God shall be taken from you (Old Covenant Israel) and given to a nation (Followers of Christ) bringing forth the fruits thereof.

Meaning: Those in Christ would be raised up from the “land” will inherit “the life” and bear the fruit (Rom.14:17) of God in this new restored Garden-Land-Kingdom.

In 1 Peter 2:9 “But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.

Mt.11:29 “Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls.

So again, I ask where are we today in redemption history?

It ALL boils down to this:

The Good News is!
