Can you rightly divide the word of truth? Do you understand the difference between the Old Covenant and the New Covenant? Is your Christian life one of freedom or do you kind of feel like you are stuck in slavery to a bunch of rules?
There are only TWO covenants, and to rightly divide the word of truth we must understand the difference between the two. Trusting in this truth is the door that will set you free from a life of slavery to the Law of Moses; from a life of wandering in the wilderness of the Sinai Peninsula. Paul tells us in Galatians that, yes, Hagar and Sarah ARE symbols of a much greater truth.
These two women serve as an illustration of God’s two covenants. The first woman, Hagar, represents Mount Sinai where people received the law that enslaved them. And now Jerusalem is just like Mount Sinai in Arabia, because she and her children live in slavery to the law. But the other woman, Sarah, represents the heavenly Jerusalem. She is the free woman, and she is our mother. (Galatians 4:24-26 NLT)
This link below will take you to Aaron Budjen’s 27-minute audio message that elucidates this issue of the two covenants, and will clear away many of the cobwebs of your Christian life. (Title: “Romans Message 3, Chapter 1:5, “The New Covenant.”)
Additionally, the part of my personal testimony about how the Living God Ministries Radio Archive messages transformed my relationship with God is found here.
I want other Christians to be set free just as I have been! The Lord God truly is my life; He meets all of my deep needs now that I am free from the slavery of the Old Covenant. I pray that you will listen to Aaron’s message linked above, and that you will walk through the door and enter the New Covenant once and for all. 🙂
