The SINGULARITY of the NEW COVENANT

The SINGULARITY of the NEW COVENANT

Substantially re-posted from article, "THERE’S LITERALLY ONE NEW COVENANT" by Douglas Krieger - commonwealththeology.com. Used by permission.



One of the most glaring misunderstandings (at best) and theological subterfuges (at worst) is the hijacking of the New Covenant as seen in Jeremiah 31:31-40; and alluded to in Ezekiel 37:26, as well as Ezekiel 11:19; 36:24-28.  Hijacking in that the “Christian Community” (vast swaths thereof) have completely rejected the notion that the SINGULARITY of this New Covenant was originally promised to BOTH the House of Israel and the House of Judah (Jer. 31:31 – “Behold, the days are coming, says the LORD, when I will make a NEW COVENANT with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah”).

God's Divorce and Remarriage to Israel - Dr. Douglas Hamp


HOW GOD PUT ISRAEL BACK TOGETHER.
Expounding on Dr. Hamp's chapter, "GOD’S DIVORCE AND REMARRIAGE" from the book, ONE IN MESSIAH (https://www.amazon.com/One-Messiah-Perspectives-Commonwealth-Convocation-ebook/dp/B07SLKJD35)



GOD’S DIVORCE AND REMARRIAGE A Study of God’s Marriage to Israel under the First Covenant, at Sinai, Their Divorce Due to Israel’s Adultery, And their Restoration Under the New Covenant Established by Yeshua/Jesus. Would you be surprised to learn the Old Covenant was not a collection of dos and don’ts but was a marriage contract between God and Israel? Would you be surprised that the New Covenant is not a doing away with God’s laws but rather establishing a new marriage contract with Israel? Understanding these two terms is incredibly important for they are at the very heart of our faith. Failure to understand these two terms has created an untold number of strange doctrines some which have resulted in catastrophes. Some people claim the “old covenant” laws and commandments were done away with – even nailed to the cross. Others claim to be “New Testament Christians” only – referring to teaching exclusively from the corpus of the New Testament books. The difference between the two testaments is actually very simple to illustrate: Imagine if you cancelled your cell phone contract with company A. A month later you change your mind and establish a new contract with the same company. Your terms and conditions are the same, but the contract is different. This is the same idea between the two testaments: the terms and conditions are the same (the laws and commandments) but the contracts are different.

The Denver Declaration - Summer 2019




INTRODUCTION
TO THE
DENVER DECLARATION

During the course of 2017-2019 a number of believers in Messiah – Jesus – realized from their doctrinal backgrounds that the major theological paradigms now prevalent primarily within evangelical circles were either inherited from Roman Catholicism and Reformational Churches and/or from more modern forms of systematic theology, primarily those with premillennarian/dispensational emphasis. Coupled with these older bodies of doctrinal emphases were eschatologies which emphasized the “disinheritance” of Israel (aka, the Jews) expressed in the corpus of what is considered Replacement/Rejection theology wherein “Israel” is solely the New Israel of God—i.e., the Church; whereas in Dispensational thinking the Ekklesia/Congregation/Church is wholly disconnected from the tribe of Judah (i.e., the Jews) wherein God’s plan for both the Church and “Israel” are utterly disconnected, the one from the other.

Haunted Theology: How the Modern Church is Haunted by the Ghost of Marcion

Haunted Theology: How the Modern Church is Haunted by the Ghost of Marcion - Dr. Douglas Hamp



We have a haunted theology today – it is inhabited by a spirit of a 2nd century heretic who continues to exert influence over how some Christians read their Bible.

The longer version is also posted on our video page. https://www.commonwealthofisrael.org/p/education.html

This teaching is SO CLEAR AND POWERFUL! we just had to post it here on the main blog page too.
