Break Away

Hebrews 8:13 In that he saith, A new covenant, he hath made the first old. Now that which decayeth and waxeth old is ready to vanish away.

The old Covenant was ready to vanish away at the time that the author of Hebrews penned the epistle.
The year was AD 66. That was 1955 years ago.

The old Covenant was READY TO VANISH AWAY.

Sadly, there are many that cling to the old Cavenant and refuse to let it vanish. They want to live under the Law of Moses, rather than by the Grace of Almighty God. And yet, even then, when Moses is read they still have a veil over their hearts, unable to hear or understand him. For instance,

Moses told the children of Israel that God’s commanded tithe was to be agriculture and agricultural food by-products. Yet those wanting to cling to the old Covenant do not hear agriculture and agricultural food by-products. They understand Moses to mean that God’s tithe is to be money.

Moses told the children of Israel that God’s commanded tithe was to be observed only in the land of Canaan. Yet those who want to cling to the old Covenant insist that God requires tithes all over the world.

Moses told the children of Israel that they were not to do what seemed right in their own eyes. Yet those who cling to the old Covenant insist they can live by their own rules instead of those that God set forth in the old Covenant.

Here is what the apostle Paul says to those who wish to cling to the old Covenant…

Galatians 3:10 For as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse: for it is written, Cursed is every one that continueth not in all things which are written in the book of the law to do them.

Galatians 5:4 Christ is become of no effect unto you, whosoever of you are justified by the law; ye are fallen from grace.

My council to those who wish to cling to the old Covenant is as follows:

It is impossible for you to observe all that is written in the old Covenant. Therefore it would be wise for you to break away from the old and walk in the new. For in the New is where Christ resides. The old required the death of Christ. The new gives the life of Christ.
