Moses & The New Covenant

When some people are told that the New Testament gives them freedom to “do anything that they want”, without judgment, at the expense of Christ having died on the cross out of love for them, between the Torah and the New Testament, they head to the easy buffet table — the New Testament. But it also attracts the natural grace abusers, people who have a propensity to grab all the TP in a pandemic for themselves. They are basically opportunists and consumers, even in religion. The New Covenant also addresses those placeholders. God is 5 steps ahead the heart of a man.

But in the New Covenant, it is the final Covenant. Some verses do not hold favor to the lawless believers. Let’s check out Hebrews 6.

“It is impossible for those who have once been enlightened, who have tasted the heavenly gift, who have shared in the Holy Spirit, who have tasted the goodness of the word of God and the powers of the coming age and who have fallen away, to be brought back to repentance.” 

Once you are given a taste of the highest state, where else can you go after that? So if you are that guy and you decide to leave, the door will see you leave for the last time.

In understand the intensity between the Old and the New Covenants, we shall take a quick look at the journey of Moses to paradise.

THE DEATH OF MOSES HAS A SEQUEL. THE GOOD NEWS EXPLAINS THE TRANSFIGURATION OF MESSIAH.

MOSES MISSED OUT ON THE PROMISED LAND. HIS JOURNEY STOPPED IN KADESH IN THE DESERT OF ZIN. SO CLOSE TO JORDAN.

Moses then went up Mount Nebo to the top of Pisgah, looked over the promised land of Israel spread out before him, and passed, at the age of one hundred and twenty. Devarim 34.

In the Good News, the New Covenant took care of those as Moses, who placed their trust in the Messiah prophesied from his own pen in Devarim 18. Moses finally saw again the glory of YHVH in Yehosha!

It is only possible because Messiah is the same as the Word of YHVH that spoke ot Moses at the burning bush on Horeb where his relationship with the Word began. The Word did not forsake him. Moses had hatched all his trust in the Word of YHVH. And he was finally delivered. He was taken to paradeisos.

Because Moses broke faith with YHVH at the waters of Meribah-kadesh in the wilderness of Zin and did not treat Him as set apart publicly in the midst of the people of Israel, God allowed Moses to see — but not enter — the Promised Land (Deuteronomy 32:51–52).Yes, he died. But he got a better deal. He met the Messiah in glory. He went to paradeisos. This is the end of the WHOLE story. Moses had to meet the Messiah to enter paradeisos because Messiah is The Way, haDerekh, the only way to the Father. Congratulations Moses!

Matthew 17 – The Transfiguration

17 And after six days Yehosa took with him Kafa and Ya’aqov, and Yokhanan his brother, and led them up a high mountain (Hermon) by themselves.2 And he was transfigured before them, and his face shone like the sun (cf. John remembered that in Revelation 1 later), and his clothes became white as light. 3 And behold, there appeared to them Moses and Elijah, talking with him. 4 And Kafa said to Yehosha, “Lord, it is good that we are here. If you wish, I will make three tents here, one for you and one for Moses and one for Elijah.” (For it was the birth anniversary of the son of man, during the Feast of Tabernacles. He was born in a tent and put in a manger)5 He was still speaking when, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them, and a voice from the cloud said, “This is my my Son, my Beloved (HaYediyd) with whom I am well pleased; listen to him.” 6 When the disciples heard this, they fell on their faces and were terrified. 7 But Yehosha came and touched them, saying, “Rise, and have no fear.” 8 And when they lifted up their eyes, they saw no one but Yehosha only. 9 And as they were coming down the mountain, Yehosha commanded them, “Tell no one the vision, until the Son of Man is raised from the dead.”10 And the disciples asked him, “Then why do the scribes say that first Elijah must come?” 11 He answered, “Elijah does come, and he will restore all things. 12 But I tell you that Elijah has already come, and they did not recognize him, but did to him whatever they pleased. So also the Son of Man will certainly suffer at their hands.” 13 Then the disciples understood that he was speaking to them of John the Baptizer.

However, Moses put his trust when he had not seen. On Hermon, he saw what he trsuted in. The Word came in the flesh in Yehosha. His soul is revived.

How about for Christians who are REVEALED the Messiah and yet turn back and break faith in public with God? Moses was only an example from a previous covenant. Eternal life is at stake for those who will not repent. That is why in Hebrews 6, it is clearly stated,

“It is impossible for those who have once been enlightened, who have tasted the heavenly gift, who have shared in the Holy Spirit, who have tasted the goodness of the word of God and the powers of the coming age and who have fallen away, to be brought back to repentance.”

So the question to you is, Nebo or Hermon?

On one you descend and go down to Sheol. On the other, you rise to meet the Beloved One HaYediyd of the Father.
