Lesson 12 of 12
1. The things (tokens/tokens) of the First Covenant reflected God in physical things.
2. The tools of Moses’ covenant were physical and were used in an earthy temple.
3. The tools of Jesus’ covenant are spiritual and are used in the temple of our souls.
4. The tools or tokens of the covenant represent God to you (the believer) and keep you in remembrance of God.
5. These things also represented your faith to God that He would be in remembrance of you.
6. Only the blood God sanctifies stands for our righteousness.
7. The word “figure” means that the Mosaic Law was only standing as a temporary token for the time until Christ would come.
8. God not longer sanctifies (selects and empowers) the blood of an animal.
9. We cannot use the things of Moses that were sprinkled with the blood of an animal.
10. When the covenant transitioned from Jesus to Moses the tools changed.
11. The Law of Moses as no longer our standard for faith, Jesus Christ is (the Law of Grace).
12. We identify the Law of Grace in the knowledge and tools of Christ to apply and benefit from it.
13. God only values Jesus Christ; He only is the perfect standard of God. Therefore, God never weighs faith on any other scale than Jesus Christ.
42. When we measure our faith to Jesus Christ our faith is perfect.
43. The “good” works that represent Jesus Christ and His covenant are necessary for the work of the cross to take place in our hearts.
44. Our faith in Christ and the works of His covenant carry nothing of us or of our debt to God.
45. There are 4 different kinds of works that the Bible talks about: The works of Moses (these are the works of debt); the works of the flesh (these are also works of debt); the works of the covenant; the works that adorn the doctrine of Christ.
46. The works that adorn the doctrine of Christ are a consequence of our activity with the tools (love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance).
47. We show our love to Him by keeping His (Jesus’) commandments.
48. When we keep His (Jesus’) commandments, He in turn will manifest Himself to us.
49. His presence cannot be experienced apart from the terms He set for that manifestation.
50. He must reveal Himself to us, for we cannot express faith in Him apart from Him.
51. We cannot say we have faith in God through the knowledge of Jesus Christ, but not experience His manifestation to us.
52. Jesus must be the expression of our faith.
53. Faith must take the form of the Second Covenant commandments (which are the works of the covenant).
54. By giving us the spiritual tools of His covenant, Jesus is keeping us tethered to Him by His knowledge. We carry His likeness in faith and His virtue in regeneration by the tether of His knowledge.
56. The activity of faith is set in order by Jesus Christ to allow us to: see Him; remain joined to Him; touch Him and partake of Him.
57. The virtue that you are tethered to is what He is governing you by.
58. When faith touches Jesus Christ, a divine reciprocation takes place: when you touch Him, you receive His virtue.
59. He is your contact point. Remain joined to Him
60. Spiritual healing comes through the covenant?
61. Daily, when you touch Jesus by using His tools, His virtue touches you to heal your soul. That virtue is called grace.
62. The virtue called Grace is God’s technique for developing Christ in you
1. Grace births faith in the heart: Without faith is it impossible to please God.
2. Grace gives us a heart to perceive Christ: We see Him in our faith rather than ourselves.
3. Grace gives strength to the will to choose righteousness.
4. Grace is of power to grant equity in the inner man between the mind and emotions.
5. Grace is of power to grant single mindedness: As the mind is brought under the power of God’s grace it is no longer looking for the will of God in the flesh.
6. Grace is of power to grant sober mindedness: The soul is no longer drunk on the promise of the world.
7. Grace is of power to nourish the heart with the substance of God’s kingdom.
8. Grace is of power to enlarge the heart with God’s fruit.
9. Grace is of power to keep us rooted in Christ: The imagination is brought into subjection to Christ, and the soul no longer wanders after the world.
