33 "But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel. After those days," says the Lord, "I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.
31 Cast away from you all your transgressions, by which you have transgressed; and get a new heart, a new mind, and a new spirit. For why will you die1, O house of Israel?
|Hebrews 8:10 |
10 For this is the [new] covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says the Lord: I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts;2 and I will be to them a God, and they will be to me a people. [Christ is the mediator of the new covenant; he mediates between God and man, directing the condemnation and destruction of sin in men who seek the Kingdom of God and God's righteousness as their life's highest priority, doing the only one thing needed, to sit at his feet and listen to his spoken words. Luke 10:39,42. Those commands we hear or see revealed that command us to change our behaviors, (to repent), are laws put in our mind and written in our heart and are added to the inner law on a man's heart. From the Word of the Lord within: "When you have heard the dead words in the Bible and recall them, heed what is said; always obedient to His commands. You must obey every law the Spirit establishes."]
