New Covenant Faith

Did you know that God takes ownership of your soul when you are in covenant with Him? This Bible study course is written to aid a Christian to understand God’s plan for them to come into covenant with Him. Because the Bible talks about two major covenants, we need to identify the covenant God is actively working with now. This course will compare the First Covenant to the Second Covenant so that you will be clear about which covenant God now honors.
 
Covenant theology and new covenant faith Bible study online.
 
We will learn what the word “covenant” means to God, why faith must be restricted to a covenant, and why God transferred the covenant from Moses to Jesus. We will also understand the significance of Moses sprinkling the blood of an animal upon the tools of the First Covenant to understand why God sprinkled Jesus’ blood on His covenant tools.

Did you know that God does not accept you that way you are—He accepts you on the terms of His covenant for which Jesus shed His blood, the New Covenant, the house of Jesus Christ. Covenant theology is made simple through the use of charts and illustrations.

This course will help you begin to understand the covenant that Jesus purchased with His blood, and make vital connections between your faith and His covenant tools. Christ came to give us new knowledge, new tools, and a new law and power over sin. Find out what your faith is yoked to, what a Hagar Faith is, and how God designed your soul to increase in the likeness of Christ through contact with Him. Everything you need to know about the importance of the New Covenant is in this course.
 
This exciting course is divided into eleven (11) lessons, followed by 2 additional Study Guides: Getting a Fresh Start and Summary Notes, both of which are packed full of information that will assist you in your faith. You can use the review questions at the end of each lesson to help you get the most of your studies. Even though several answer choices may be true, students must identify the choice which has the most support in the lesson.

I am confident that as you prayerfully study this course God will issue grace for your understanding and grant you an experience in Him for your spiritual growth. If you have any questions, please submit your questions in the contact form. A member of the coalition of apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors, and teachers of the Second 8th Week will reply as soon as possible. All scripture quotations are from the King James version of the Bible. 


Lessons in the New Covenant Faith Study Course
  1. In Covenant With God
    Believers may ask, “Why do we have to come in covenant with God?” or “Isn’t covenant something of the past?”   When talking in modern terms, a covenant can be defined as an agreement that binds two parties through clearly stipulated terms, and entails definite terms and conditions, clearly defined within the agreement. The participation set out within...
  2. The Bible Talks About Two Covenants
    What does the Bible say about covenant? Although God talks about many covenants in the Bible, His main focus has always been on these two covenants: The covenant God gave through Moses. The covenant God gave through our Lord Jesus Christ. Galatians 4:23-24 23. But he who was of the bondwoman was born after the flesh; but he of the freewoman was by promise. 24.&...
  3. The First Covenant Was Sealed by the Blood of an Animal
    We must know that without the shedding of blood there is no remission of sins (Hebrews 9:22). The First Covenant was sealed by the blood of an animal, signifying that the Perfect One, Jesus Christ, had not yet come to shed His blood for the sins of the world.   Moses sprinkled the blood of an animal upon the book of the law and all the tools and articles of the First Covenant to s...
  4. The Second Covenant Was Sealed by the Blood of Jesus Christ
    Matthew 26:28 “For this is My blood of the NEW TESTAMENT, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.”   The good news is that God came in the flesh to shed His own blood for the sins of the world. The simple truth is that Jesus shed His blood for the forgiveness of sins, to establish in Himself a new covenant, and to set the terms of the covenant in Himself....
  5. God Inhabits What He Builds
    It is so important for us to understand that God must empower faith for faith to be living. For God to empower faith, faith must be built according to the pattern that God Himself supplies. We are going to look at 2 clear examples of this in the Old Testament.   First, where God gave Moses the blueprints to build the tabernacle in the wilderness, and then, after Moses const...
  6. The Witness Follows the Record
    Apostles today bring the church back to the true understanding of how the Witness of the Spirit works with the Record of Jesus Christ. Let's take a moment and look at these two words: 1. Record 2. Witness   What is the “record?” The record of your faith is the pattern of truth God lays as a foundation within the heart. Jesus Christ is the living record of o...
  7. The Divine Pattern
    We are going to talk some more about this divine pattern: the Witness follows the Record. We learn this simple principle of faith: That which God authorizes in Jesus Christ (the Record), He also empowers (the Witness). This is what Paul was referring to when he wrote about God’s promise to each believer, that if they walked in the record of Christ (His truth), they would walk in t...
  8. Is the New Testament the Second Covenant?
    Is the New Testament the Second Covenant? Yes, the New Testament is the Second Covenant. God uses the word testament and covenant interchangeably. When Jesus said, "This is my blood of the NEW TESTAMENT," (Matthew 26:28), He was establishing a New Covenant in Himself. Hebrews 8:7-8 7.  For if that First Covenant had been faultless, then should no place have been sought for...
  9. Believers in Christ Accept the Yoke of Jesus
    Matthew 11:28-30 28. Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29. Take my YOKE upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. 30. For my YOKE is easy, and my burden is light.   What is a Yoke?   A yoke is a beam, which is used between a pair of o...
  10. Why Faith Must be Restricted to the Covenant
    Have you noticed that the word “restriction” can sometimes leave a bad taste in your mouth? Our natural inclination is to come and go as we please—to be free-spirited. Many times because Christians misunderstand the word restriction they fight against it, thinking it is a call to legalism. Let me assure you that it is not.   Understanding what God means by “...
  11. What are the Terms of the New Covenant?
    This is God’s promise to you: If you exercise your faith with the knowledge and tools that God sanctified by Jesus Christ then Jesus will represent you and mediate the covenant as your advocate, and God will give you the blessing of Christ: Grace and peace are multiplied to you. If you are not experiencing God’s multiplication and the progressive nature of God’s kingdo...
  12. Getting a Fresh Start
    Common words you read in the Bible now hold new meaning: “covenant”, “blood”, “pattern”, “knowledge”, “truth”, “design”, “tools”, “record”, “witness”, “First Covenant”, “Second Covenant”, “Old Testament”, “New Testament”. These are...
  13. Summary Notes
