THERE IS A NEW COVENANT BY GARY WILKERSON
"For by one offering He has perfected forever those who are being sanctified." - Hebrews 10:14
In the 2014 Calender presented by World Challenge in the month of July, Gary Wilkerson, son of Late David Wilkerson,
wrote a beautiful article on the new covenant of God as outlined below. Enjoy and be blessed as God has a plan for His Children in these last days, based on this New Covenant.
Indeed, God is Faithful! What a sacrifice! God now says the covenant is not like the covenant made with the angels.
It is not like the covenant made with Adam - and Adam failed.
Nor is it like the covenant of circumcision - where the children of Israel failed.
It is not like the covenant made with the Law of Moses and it is not like the covenant of the high priestly sacrifice.
God says that this is a New Covenant, a more excellent covenant, a holy covenant. It is Christ's covenant coming to bring us into new life, new creation. He is taking out the old and making all things new.
This is not a covenant based on our works. It is not a partnership with God. It is not God dealing with His people on mutual terms of performances. It is not God saying, "I will perform this if you will perform that."
Instead, God said, "Have you had enough of these old covenants?" Are you weary enough now of failing? Are you tired and frustrated of trying in your own moral power to show how holy you are before God?
Are you tired of seeing youreslf as equal with God, as if God could bring His bargain to this covenant and then you could bring your bargain and stand on equal ground?
The word says that every single covenant God made long ago had one purpose - to show us the inability of our moral fiber, our inability to be covenant keepers on equal ground with God ( Hebrews 1:1-3).
It finally drove us to the point - as God does through the law now, even in the New Testament times - where we say, "I cannot do this myself. Nothing in my hand I bring to you Lord. Without You taking both parts of the covenant. Your side and mine, without You fulfilling your promises Yourself and fulfilling my promises for me, I cannot stand."
There is now a new covenant!
A New Covenant Prayer By Synthia Esther
Dear Holy Father,
I offer this prayer of thanksgiving for your new Holy Covenant. I am weak but thou art strong. Based on your strength Oh Lord, I give you my soul, mind, will, emotions, and ask you to equip my spirit to know by faith the power given me by your covenant. Use my life as you see fit in accordance with your will, and for your service. I thank you Heavenly Father for your grace, mercy, and love, by which your New Covenant was provided to all Your Children.
I pray these things In Jesus Christ Holy Name. Amen, Amen, and Amen.
