THE NEW COVENANT WITH ISRAEL AND JUDAH

(  JEREMIAH 31:31-37 )

 

 

31 Ya said: the time will come when I will make a new covenant with the People of Israel and Judah.  

 

32 It will be different from the covenant I made with their ancestors when I led them out of Egypt.  Although I was their God they broke that covenant.

 

33 Here is the new covenant that I will make with the People of Israel "I will write in my laws on their hearts and minds.  I will be their God and they will be my People".

 

34 "No longer will they have to teach one another to obey me.  Ya, promise that all of them will obey me, ordinary people and rulers alike.  I will forgive their sins and forget the evil things they have done".

 

35 I'm Ya, all powerful, I command the Sun to give light each day, the Moon and the stars to shine at night and ocean waves to roar.  

 

36 I will never forget to give those commands and I will never let Israel stop being a nation.  Ya has spoken.

 

37 Can you measure the heavens?  Can you explore the depths of the earth?  That's how hard it would be for me to reject Israel forever, even though they have sinned.  I, Ya, have spoken.

 

 

1 Kings 8:46-53 (Holy Bible)

 

 

46 If they sin against thee, (for there is no man that sinneth not,) and thou be angry with them, and deliver them to the enemy, so that they carry them away captives unto the land of the enemy, far or near;

 

47 Yet if they shall bethink themselves in the land whither they were carried captives, and repent, and make supplication unto thee in the land of them that carried them captives, saying, We have sinned, and have done perversely, we have committed wickedness;

 

48 And so return unto thee with all their heart, and with all their soul, in the land of their enemies, which led them away captive, and pray unto thee toward their land, which thou gavest unto their fathers, the city which thou hast chosen, and the house which I have built for thy name:

 

49 Then hear thou their prayer and their supplication in heaven thy dwelling place, and maintain their cause,

 

50 And forgive thy people that have sinned against thee, and all their transgressions wherein they have transgressed against thee, and give them compassion before them who carried them captive, that they may have compassion on them:

 

51 For they be thy people, and thine inheritance, which thou broughtest forth out of Egypt, from the midst of the furnace of iron:

 

52 That thine eyes may be open unto the supplication of thy servant, and unto the supplication of thy people Israel, to hearken unto them in all that they call for unto thee.

 

53 For thou didst separate them from among all the people of the earth, to be thine inheritance, as thou spakest by the hand of Moses thy servant, when thou broughtest our fathers out of Egypt, O Lord God.

 

O Father in heaven hear our prayer and our supplication and maintain our cause.

 

(HOLY QURAN SURA 49:13)

 

O mankind!  We have created you from a single pair of male and female, and made you into nations and tribes, that ye may know one each other not that you may despise each other.  Verily,  the most honoured of you, in the sight of Allah is He, who is the most righteous of you.  And, Allah has full knowledge and is well acquainted with all things.

10. What your ancient forefathers were, you are today without doubt or contradiction.

CIRCLE 7 KORAN

 

Ye are the children of one father, provided for by his care:  and the breast of one mother hath given you suck.  Let the bonds of affection, therefore, unite thee with thy brothers, that peace and happiness may dwell in thy father’s house; and when ye separate in the world, remember the relation that bindeth you to love and unity; and prefer not a stranger before thy own blood.  If thy brother is in adversity, assist him, if thy sister is in trouble, forsake her not.  So shall the fortunes of thy father contribute to the support of his whole race; and his care be continued to you all, in your love to each other.

 

 

EPHESIANS CHAPTER 2:11-16

 

11. Wherefore remember, that formerly you, the Gentiles/Europeans in the flesh, who are called “Un-circumcision” by the so-called “Circumcision” Hebrews/Moors, which is performed in the flesh by human hands;

12. That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the common-wealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope and without God in the world;

13. But now in Christ you who once were far off are made near by the blood of Christ;

14. For He is our peace, who hath made both one and broke down the middle wall of partition between us;

15. Having abolished in His flesh the enmity, even the Law of commandment contained in ordinances, to make in himself of two into one new man, making peace;

16. And that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby;

 

 

Let the wall now and forever be removed between us the 12 Tribes of Israel, and our fellow brothers who are now part of the commonwealth. Let the wall remain removed from this day forth; let us live in harmony; let us now stride together to fulfill the destiny intended for us by our Creator.
