To be or not to be —– a New Testament
The inappropriately named New Testament second part of the Bible is nothing of the sort.
It is but the report documenting what occurred in the 1st Century Jewish community after they had been executed in their Messiah Jesus as promised to them by their God and Father under their Law covenant — please see the entire chapter of Leviticus 26 and Deuteronomy chapters 27 and 28.
While the first covenant had a written documented presence on scrolls, recopied many times for the duration of the covenant, there was no such New Covenant documentation the people could read or have read to them to agree and swear to uphold, observe and obey.
For all the paperwork of the actual New Covenant, which also doubled as a Testament for an inheritance, go no farther than Jeremiah 31:31-34 for this is the New Covenant/Testament:
31 Behold, the days come, saith Jehovah, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah:
32 not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they brake, although I was a husband unto them, saith Jehovah.
33 But this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, saith Jehovah: I will put my law in their inward parts, and in their heart will I write it; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people: ASV
Jehovah purposed the laws and regulations of the former covenant to be their attitude training wheels to perfect His firstborn son Israel toward full integration within the entire structure of Yahweh's universal administrative presence —–Ezekiel 1:4-28.
Jehovah's words above:
I will put my law in their inward parts, and in their heart will I write it certainly portend an acceptable attitude well-pleasing to God as a prerequisite for such integration.
Jehovah desired only a relatively few faithful humans to be rewarded with full systemic sonship; i.e.: to become gods like their Father Jehovah; true Sons — please see here.
Israel's unfaithful wickedness rendered them unfit for that role. They needed to be terminated forever according to their law. Nonetheless, Jehovah's love for His firstborn son moved Him to ransom them with a virtual human sheep not descended from Adam.
Behold, another Adam directly created, as was the first, except that God sourced the earth material via Mary for the legally required links to Adam and David – her womb representing the earth:
13 For Thou didst form my inward parts; Thou didst weave me in my mother’s womb.
14 I will give thanks to Thee, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Wonderful are Thy works, And my soul knows it very well. 15 My frame was not hidden from Thee, When I was made in secret, And skillfully wrought in the depths of the earth.
Psalm 139:13-15 NAS
The original Israel of the promise ultimately coalesced into a little flock of those manifesting the faith of Abraham in their accepting Israel's redemption, who are the multi-racial, multi-gender Seed of Abraham Israel of God of Isaiah 41:8; Galatians 3:28-29; 6:16 numbering just 144000.
Pertinent verses which link the little flock to the 144000 of Revelation:
There is really very little else I could say here, since I have dealt with all related matters elsewhere and, sorry to say, all over my site as either deemed necessary or as best I could conceive.
