A Better Covenant w/Better Promises”

Intro:

  • Hebrews 8:6 …”But now He has obtained a more excellent ministry, inasmuch as He is also Mediator of a better covenant, which was established on better promises.” (No promises without the covenant)
  • O.T. mainly palliative (Jeremiah)

N.T. palliative up to curative (Paul/Silas)

  • Story: Charles Blondin & wheelbarrow

Palliative up to Curative, cont’d:

  • Note “upon” versus “in”/”future” vs “present”
  • Isaiah 61:1 …”“The Spirit of the Lord God is upon Me, Because the Lord has anointed Me To preach good tidings to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, To proclaim liberty to the captives, And the opening of the prison to those who are bound;”
  • Luke 4:17-21 …”And He was handed the book of the prophet Isaiah. And when He had opened the book, He found the place where it was written: “The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, Because He has anointed Me To preach the gospel to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, To proclaim liberty to the captives And recovery of sight to the blind, To set at liberty those who are oppressed; To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord.” Then He closed the book, and gave it back to the attendant and sat down. And the eyes of all who were in the synagogue were fixed on Him. And He began to say to them, “Today this Scripture is fulfilled in your hearing.”
  • John 14:12 …15-17 …”“Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father……. (15-17) …“If you love Me, keep My commandments. And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever— the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you. “

  • John 14:25-26 ..” These things I have spoken to you while being present with you. But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you”
  • Acts 1:8 …”But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.”
  • Mark 16:15-18 …”And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned. And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.” (ALL OTHER BELIEVERS WILL, ALSO)

  • Hebrews 8:6 …”But now He has obtained a more excellent ministry, inasmuch as He is also Mediator of a better covenant, which was established on better promises.” (Booster Rocket Rising to Curative)
  • Luke 9:23 …”Then He said to them all, “If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow Me.” (“Crucified Life” goes….Preventative, Palliative, Curative)
  • The tightrope….the wheelbarrow… and the Spirit are always ready for:
  1. Leading someone over to Jesus
  2. Us to cross on a “kill mission”

Close:

  • Romans 8:13 …”For if you live according to the flesh you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live.”
  • Will we continue to go to Curative?
  • From Jeremiah to Paul Silas, Stephen, etc
  • Will we receive “the better promise”… of the infilling of the Spirit!!
