Daily Bread 6/19/2023


    Daily Bread – June 19, 2023 (The Second Day – Genesis 1:6-8) Ephesians 2:19 – Now then, you are no longer foreigners and strangers, but are fellow citizens, holy ones, and of the house of God. The Fellowship Of The New Creation God has made a New Covenant and invited both Jew and Gentile into the fellowship of a new creation. The Gospel of the New Covenant was first announced to the House of Israel and to Judah, but was extended to all nations so that whosoever is willing to call upon the Name of the Lord can become a part of the Kingdom of God (Jeremiah 31:31; Hebrews 8:8; Romans 1:16, 2:10; Isaiah 49:6; Luke 2:32). God made a New Covenant and has done away with the Old, leaving no room at all for it (Hebrews 8:8-13). There cannot be a New Covenant and an Old Covenant existing at the same time. The Lord only established the Law in the sense that the Law of God was established in our hearts, not the First Covenant, being the Law of Moses (Hebrews 10:16; Galatians 2:21; Romans 8:2-3). The Law of Moses testified of the Law of God, but it could not establish it in our hearts until the New Covenant was made. This is not a replacement theology, but an inclusion theology in which all men are brought unto the Father by Jesus Christ, the Lord – for there is no salvation for any man outside of Christ Jesus (John 1:17, 14:6; ; Acts 4:10-12; Galatians 5:1-14). Now, all men who will obey the Gospel are made heirs of God and citizens of the Kingdom. Anyone hanging onto the Old Covenant cannot be a citizen of the Kingdom or an heir of the promises. God’s promise to Abraham and to the sons of Israel was not established through the Law, but through the Seed, Christ Jesus (Galatians 3:16-18, 21, 29). Blessings, Pastor Mark Spitsbergen
