The Holy Spirit, New Covenant, and the Spiritual Life. Romans 7:1-6, 2 Corinthians 3:1-10. November 1, 2012.
In comparison to the Church Age, the Law provided little for the believer’s spiritual life. The Law was temporary, given by God so man could understand his impossible position of death. In the Church Age, the power of the sin nature is broken and the Holy Spirit indwells the believer, but even more is in store for the believer under the New Covenant, which is made with the house of Israel and the house of Judah but through which Church Age believers benefit. Through the Holy Spirit, New Testament teachers have resources to be ministers of the gospel. They can announce God’s plan for the New Covenant which may have similarities to today, but is enacted in the future with Israel. Learn about the New Covenant, permanent and eternal, introduced in the Old Testament, prior to the Church as a part of Israel’s future and her worldwide blessing to all nations.
