I’m about to show you the largest and most integrated marketing strategy ever devised, and this one was devised by God. Before I get started, I want to say this: many people, when they here something said that they disagree with, they turn off the video, calling it a lie, without ever listening and seeing the evidence to support claims made. While I understand that some people don’t use evidence, anyone who has ever looked at my research knows I like to use extensive amounts of Holy Scripture and any history, linguistic studies, or any other vital piece of information that I have acquired: so much that I’ve had people complain that I use too much. Yet, I use so much because the multitude that has been indoctrinated with denominational theology need it for me to even try and break them from that indoctrination and let them see what Holy Scripture has to say. 

I said all that because, in this video, I’m going to show you what Holy Scripture has to say about the timing of the establishment of the two Covenants, and flip popular denominational theology on its head. 

In the middle of the study of this series on the two Covenants, The Holy Spirit showed me, written very clearly in Scripture, the Covenant which we call “New” was established 430 years prior to the Covenant we call “Old”. DON’T TURN ME OFF JUST YET!, I’m going to show you easy to understand Scripture that shows this fact. 

I spent two days in a study of Galatians chapter three because the Spirit of Elohim was trying to show me something but I was having problems understanding it because my mind was clouded by the indoctrination of when the Covenants were established. Finally, late in the evening of the second day, when my brain was too tired and was open to what the Spirit was showing me in Scripture, the light bulb came on. 

Before we get started in the video, it’s important to open the mind to knowledge, in regards to the term "Law" in Scripture. Because denominational teaching throws the term Law straight at the Ten Commandments, people are confused when it comes to what is being talked about in Scripture, when the term “Law” is used. 

There are several “Laws” in Scripture. There is the Ten Commandment Laws and the Statute Laws; but these Laws are not laws of works, they are Laws of obedience. The works of the Law were the works required for the salvation of sin. 

Romans 3:21-22 
21 But now the righteousness of God apart from the law is revealed, being witnessed by the Law and the Prophets, 22 even the righteousness of God, through faith in Messiah Yeshua, to all and on all who believe. For there is no difference;

In Romans 3:21-22, we see the term “Law” used twice, consecutively; yet, in the manner taught by religion, it seems as if they cancel each other out: it’s contradictory. This contradiction would come because of a lack of understanding of the term “Law” and the many different “laws”. 

Since righteousness is gained by obedience (Rom 6:16), and the Ten Commandments, and Statutes, are a Law of obedience, the first Law listed is definitely talking about the Ten Commandments, saying, “aside from obedience to the Ten Commandments, the righteousness of God is witnessed by...”. We then see that God’s righteousness is “witnessed” by a "Law"; and prophets. Here we clearly see a different “law” used, other than the Laws of obedience. 

Any time you see “Law and Prophets” this is the term used for the writings of the Bible which encompass most of the Old Testament Scriptures as we know them. Law is the Torah, which is the first five books of the Bible. The term Law, or Torah, in Scripture, refers to the Covenant promises and conditions; but, even though they are within the Torah, they DO NOT refer to the “works of the Law”; which is the ceremonial workings of the Old Testament. This may sound a bit confusing but will become clearer by the end of the video. If it is not, then leave a comment and I will either try to answer or compile the questions into a new video. 

I said the Torah Law does not include the ceremonial Laws, the ceremonials laws are often described as “works of the Law”. In Galatians 3 verse 5 we read:

Galatians 3:5 
5 Therefore He who supplies the Spirit to you and works miracles among you, does He do it by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith? 

In Galatians chapter three, Paul is condemning the Galatians for going back to the “works of the Law” (Gal 3:5). When we look at this in context, we understand Paul talking about the ceremonial workings because he’s condemning them for getting circumcised (Gal 5:2) and keeping the ceremonial festivals (Gal 4:10). Understand that there is nothing wrong with circumcision or even practicing the ceremonial festivals, as long as one does not do it in thinking they can gain any type of Salvation, or special attention from God, for it. 

To get to the meat of this video, I said earlier that the Torah Law was the Covenant Law but DID NOT consist of the ceremonial workings of the Law. We’ve been taught that the Torah Law is the Old Covenant, but Galatians 3 is telling us otherwise. 

Galatians 3:16 
16 Now to Abraham and his Seed were the promises made. He does not say, "And to seeds," as of many, but as of one, "And to your Seed," who is Christ. 

Paul is talking about the Covenant made to Abraham, and that the promise was made to his seed. Paul then explains that the seed, to which the promise was made, was Messiah Yeshua. 

Understanding the subject of this letter, in condemning the Galatians for returning to the ceremonial system we know today as the Old Covenant, Paul gives a very clear timeline of when this "works" of the ceremonial law established: 430 years AFTER the promise made to Abraham. Then in Galatians chapter four, Paul then confirms what he is saying:

Galatians 4:22-26 
22 For it is written that Abraham had two sons: the one by a bondwoman, the other by a freewoman. 23 But he who was of the bondwoman was born according to the flesh, and he of the freewoman through promise, 24 which things are symbolic. For these are the two covenants: the one from Mount Sinai which gives birth to bondage, which is Hagar-- 25 for this Hagar is Mount Sinai in Arabia and corresponds to Jerusalem which now is, and is in bondage with her children-- 26 but the Jerusalem above is free, which is the mother of us all.

In the symbolic imagery of the two woman, the bondwoman represents the bondage of the Old Covenant ceremonial workings. He then explains when this woman of bondage came to the children of Israel: on Mt Sinai. Mt Sinai was 430 years after the covenant with Abraham. 

Galatians 3:19 
19 What purpose then does the law serve? It was added because of transgressions, till the Seed should come to whom the promise was made; 

Since Paul is telling us that the Covenant of Christ (which is by faith) was made with Abraham, he is then compelled to explain why the “workings of the law”, that given on Mt Sinai, what we call the ceremonial laws, were establish: they were established because of transgression of that time. There had to be something to cover transgression until the Seed of the promise to Abraham came; which is Messiah Yeshua. 

So, here’s what we are seeing: The Covenant we are in today, through Christ, is by faith; which is the Covenant that was made to Abraham: by faith (Gal 3:6-7). The “workings of the Law”, that came 430 years later (Gal 4:17), and given on Mt Sinai (Gal 5:25) is not by faith (Gal 3:12). This means, the Covenant, which we call “New” is actually the Covenant that was established with Abraham. Until the seed of that promise came, which is Y’shua, God brought in a “working of the Law” for the transgression of sin. 

Understanding the context of Scripture on the Law, the Law given on Mt Sinai was not any different than the one we are in today; as it was given from the pattern in Heaven, and is an example and shadow of Christ (Heb 8:4-5).This is to say, system and works of the Tabernacle is not an example of the works WE must do, in that ceremonial system, but an example of salvation, and the work which our Lamb and High Priest does; which is Y’shua. 

Matthew 5:17 
17 "Do not think that I came to destroy the Torah Covenant (Law) or the Prophets. I did not come to destroy but to fulfill. 

Now we can understand why brit chadasha means “Renewed Covenant”; not that it is renewed from an old but that it was the Covenant establish with Abraham, to his seed which is Christ. We were given a “temporary” workings of the Covenant until the Covenant with Abraham would be "fulfilled" through Christ. The Covenant with Abraham was “Renewed” and the temporary example passed away. The Covenant with Abraham, based upon faith, had better promises than the temporary Covenant given on Sinai. Understanding also, with knowledge we have learned about the different “Laws” and their origin, the Covenant made with Abraham was built upon the obedience to God’s Moral Law (or Ten Commandments), God’s Statutes, His Charge for our lives as a whole (being His), and His Commands in the guidance of what we do, where we go, and what we say.

Why wouldn’t God just go ahead and bring the Covenant and promise to Abraham at the point it was made? Like I said at the beginning of the study, it was the largest marketing strategy ever devised. If I had a brand new video game that I wanted to market, would I go to the elderly home or to the skateboard park? God wanted to bring a Messiah, but only Abraham followed Him with faith; all others followed paganism. How can God sell Himself and the Messiah to people who did not even believe in Him? So, He made a Covenant with Abraham to raise his children honoring the Creator. Then, after the land was full of people who not only believed in the Creator but had heard prophecies of a coming Messiah, He could bring that Covenant to fulfillment. This is why we read that Christ came for the Jew first. It’s not that the Jew was any better, or that God was any respecter of persons, but it was the Jew who believed in the God of Abraham, and who was expecting this Messiah. Once the Jew knew the truth of Christ, they spread the gospel to the world, to the gentile.

A Covenant is a type of contract made between two parties. This is the reason why, when God put the Ten Commandments on stone, He wrote on both sides of the tablets: one side was our promises; the other His. If we want to understand the conditions of the Covenant, which is Christ the Seed, we must understand the conditions of the Covenant fulfilled by Christ, made with Abraham. The simplistic, and easy going, system of “salvation” that was built by the whore church, and her harlots, has been surrounded by bad teachings. When we understand what a Covenant is, and we understand the truth of the Covenant system, we understand why Christ said the road to salvation is narrow and difficult, and few will find it (Matt 7:14); and why He said that many more will be looking for it and will THINK they found it, but they didn’t find it (Matt 7:21-23). It’s why Yeshua said we should weigh the cost of following after Him (Luke 14:28-30); because a following of Christ means a forsaking all the things of this world (Luke 14:15-27). It’s why we work out our Salvation with fear and trembling (Phil 2:12-13). The modern teaching of the two Covenants is a deception to make people think that everything that is in, what we call, the Old Testament is gone; and everything in, what we call, the New Testament is now easier, requiring less. Yet, we see, within the New Testament, that punishment will be greater for us, for the disobedience to God, than it was for those under the Law that was given on Mt Sinai (Heb 10:28-29).
