Covenant replacement theology includes the teaching that Yahweh’s New Covenant, supersedes (or replaces) the Old Covenant which was made exclusively for the Jewish people.
Yahweh’s New Covenant is in fact the fulfillment of the Old Testament promise. His earthly arrival as Messiah and Savior in the flesh, is the hope for all of mankind.
That key component of the first contract, (concerning the Old Testament) is often overlooked or simply not understood. The first Covenant could only be completed (or fulfilled) after the second Covenant was established (or confirmed).
Theology involves studying, correctly interpreting and then hopefully applying Yahweh’s Word in relationship to our daily lives. Covenant theology must not be distorted by means of replacement theology rhetoric. Under the first Covenant there was a temporary covering of sin. The second Covenant, with the arrival of Messiah who takes away our sins, is Covenant fulfillment theology revealed.
The promised judgements, and Blessings contained within the Old Covenant Law were not destroyed – but nevertheless this contract was completed. Messiah, once He accomplished, and thus fulfilled those things written in the scriptures of Him, said “It Is Finished.”
Romans 7:6 But now we are delivered from the law, that being dead wherein we were held; that we should serve in newness of spirit, and not in the oldness of the letter
Those who claim righteousness through their futile attempt to keep the Old Law, are under the curse of that same Law (Gal 3:10-11).
Yahweh’s Commandment’s, laws, and ordinances contained within the Old Covenant, were dissolved with the sacrifice of the Lamb. What this means is that these Laws are no longer enforceable upon Yahweh’s Children (that Worship Him in Spirit and in Truth).
Within the replacement theology discourses is the claim that the Church, and not the Jewish people are now God’s chosen ones.
Yahweh’s Elect included the faithful Hebrews, who would also be saved through the blood of the Lamb.
Theological discourse, amongst the carnal minded, is a meaningless pursuit occupying the minds of religious leaders and their converts.
Yahweh’s Children are Sealed and Set Apart, in that He has put His laws into their minds, and written them in their hearts (Jer 31:33, Heb 8:10).
One of the greatest lies ever told is that the ________________are recognized by Yahweh as His own.
