What does a bunker busting missile have to do with the promise of a New Covenant? I recently purchased and read a Chronological Bible straight through, desperately hungry to see and know more – the God the Hebrew Scriptures as well as the New Testament, I was ready to shed any cataract impaired lens that had clouded my vision of Him. The passage below hit me like one of these misses, blowing a massive hole through my fortified theological blindness, leaving an opening for more of his truth to enter in and begin to reframe my understanding of His heart and purposes for Israel and the nations through Messiah Jesus. Take note who this verse is spoken to and dare to ask questions you may never have asked.
31 “Behold, days are coming,” declares the Lord, “when I will make a new covenant with the
house of Israel and with the house of Judah, 32 not like the covenant which I made with their fathers in the day I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt, My covenant which they broke, although I was a husband to them,” declares the Lord.
33 “But this is the covenant which I will make with the house of Israel after those days,” declares the Lord, “I will put My law within them and on their heart I will write it; and I
will be their God, and they shall be My people. 34 They will not teach again, each man his neighbor and each man his brother, saying, ‘Know the Lord,’ for they will all know Me, from the least of them to the greatest of them,” declares the Lord, “for I will forgive their iniquity, and their sin I will remember no more.” Jeremiah Ch 31 NASB
