Sunday Devotional: He is Mediator of a New Covenant

Mark 14:22-24

While they were eating,
he took bread, said the blessing,
broke it, gave it to them, and said,
“Take it; this is my body.”
Then he took a cup, gave thanks, and gave it to them,
and they all drank from it.
He said to them,
This is my blood of the covenant,
which will be shed for many.”

Some who call themselves Christians, e.g., WND, seem obsessed with the Old Testament and the observance of the Sabbath on Saturday, among other Judaic rituals.

It is as if the Second Person of the Triune Godhead was never incarnated as man and spent 33 years on Earth, teaching and ministering, finally to be grievously tortured and nailed to a cross to die. All in order to atone for the terrible betrayal by humanity’s first parents, Adam and Eve, who, in their grandiose narcissism, imagined they could be “like God”.

But we have Jesus’ own words that through His self-sacrifice, He made a New Covenant with His very Body and Blood. Henceforth, the old tribal covenant with the Hebrews is replaced by a new covenant with all of humanity:

Mark 14:24

“This is my blood of the covenant,
which will be shed for many.”

As St. Paul said, clearly and unambiguously, in his letter to the Hebrews 8:13:

In speaking of a new covenant,
He makes the first one obsolete.
And what is becoming obsolete and growing old
is ready to vanish away.

And again, in Hebrews 9:11-12, 15:

When Christ came as high priest . . .
he entered once for all into the sanctuary,
not with the blood of goats and calves
but with his own blood, thus obtaining eternal redemption . . . .
For this reason he is mediator of a new covenant:
since a death has taken place for deliverance
from transgressions under the first covenant,
those who are called may receive the promised eternal inheritance.

Henceforth, anyone — of whatever race or creed, and not just those of a particular tribe — can be one of God’s people who, by entering into the New Covenant, are promised expiation of sins and eternal life.

But He never promised that to follow Him would be a rose garden:

Matthew 16:24

Then Jesus said to his disciples,
“Whoever wants to be my disciple
must deny themselves
and take up their cross
and follow me.”

May the peace and love of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you,

  1. World Net Daily — WND — is a Jewish based publication, as I am assuming you know. One of the biggest hoaxes of the centuries, has been accepting the terms “Jew” and “Israel” to be interchangeable and meaning the same thing. Growing up, my Dad made it very plain that he hated “the Jews.” My sister and I had many conversations about why this would be the case. If Jesus Christ was a “Jew” and the Pharisees and Sadducees were also “Jews”, then why would they crucify Jesus? Why does Jesus call those in the Temple, a den of vipers? Why does Jesus say that his sheep will hear his voice and follow him? The Jews do not follow Jesus because they are still looking forward to his first arrival. Where are the modern day descendants of the ancient Israelites? I will not have all the answers until the Day of the Lord, but it has been a very interesting research journey.

  4. Very nicely said. I had one of these conversations just the other day for the hundredth time. Many Christians seem to have trouble with this. It was not by accident that the Zionists named their project “Israel”. They knew that this term could be twisted to their desires and a source of much confusion amongst some.o

  5. Thank you, Dr. Eowyn, for being one of the few courageous to speak the truth of the New Covenant in a time of almost universal Zionist deception.

    I am convinced that WND along with other ‘Christian’ Zionist hucksters like John Hagee, Jack Van Impe (&his anorexic clothes-horse consort) et al are either outright HASBARA disinfo ops posing as ‘Christian’ ministries, or they have been successfully blackmailed or otherwise compromised by the M0ss@d.

    Their evil mission is to promote the dual cardinal heresies of the ‘Jews’ retaining God’s favor under the Old Covenant and the ‘Right of Return’ to the land (that Scripture tells us will only revert to them once they repent of their rejection&murder of Jesus Christ) under the guise of Evangelical Christianity.

    The Rothschilds are Luciferian Zio-Supremacists who follow the Satanic teachings of the TALMUD http://vikingalthing.org/article/quotes-holy-talmud-hell-anyone-want-expel-people/

    In the 1800s they bribed Cyrus Scofeld to come up with heretical ‘notes’ to the KJV Bible that primarily promoted the dual heresies described above. This heretical text caught on with American Protestants throughout the 20th century. .

    The Rothschilds literally control almost all of the money in the world through their ownership of every central bank except those in Syria, Iran. North Korea, and Cuba.

    The Rothschilds created Israel as the future home base for the Antichrist to rule the world with an Iron Fist. However, they must capture the last remaining independent central banks before this can happen.

    Christians who support Israel and its genocidal wars of aggression and non-stop land theft present one of the most destructive forces in the modern world apart from the Judas Pope Francis and his band of blasphemous traitors in the Vatican.

    • the ‘Jews’ retaining God’s favor under the Old Covenant

      — which, of course, leads to the question: Why then did the Second Person become incarnate, suffered and died on the cross? What’s the point?

  6. I think Joseph Farah is a good man and that WND has a lot of good stuff in it. But I do agree that, as every human being has a blind spot (I know I have mine and it always eludes my identification of it!), Farah seems to have fallen for Zionism hook, line and sinker. (I hope I’m not being severe here).

    The New Covenant, Our Lord and His Blessed Passion Itself, is binding and everlasting. Our Lord Declared Himself to be our Kinsman in this Salvific Act, done perfectly and done ONCE AND FOR ALL, and IT STANDS. And let us note that the Vatican II Church once declared, to the satisfaction of a certain group of rabbis, that their Covenant still maintained (and by implication, Our Lord’s New Covenant did not apply to them!) (I believe this happened during both the Papacies of Paul VI and John Paul II).
    Another most unfortunate event that has poisoned the well and widened the schism in Christianity has been the acceptance of the Scofield Bible.

    I am not against Jews having a homeland of their own. Most regrettably, the modern Israel is but a Rothschild fiefdom from beginning to end, and that Israel is a failed criminal apartheid state. This is NOT to denigrate Jews as individuals or as a People; It is to state that a group of men worked their own will instead of God’s. I don’t think Mr. Farah understands this. I also don’t think that many people understand that the Judaism of Christ’s Time was NOT the Talmudic Judaism that followed. Therefor, I do not believe that the Israel many people support today IS NOT the Israel of the Old Testament.
    People not only have to get their facts correct, but they must get the CONTEXT of those facts correct, also. It seems to me that the Scofield Bible, as well as a number of other things, work to prevent the correct identification of historical context. (As an example, I won’t dismiss any “Rapture” out of hand, but I DO NOT believe that God will sweep His People—Jew or Christian—out of here once the Tribulation begins). THIS is what I think Mr. Farah, mysteriously and inexplicably, misses.

    As for me, a wanderer away from the Faith who has returned to it, I have to check on where I am every day. And I admit that Prayer, my first line of defense, is something I know I do not do nearly enough. (And I pray and hope that Christ can forgive me for this moral shortcoming, also).
