What an amazing learning experience we have been on each week as we have journeyed through the words of Yehovah’s Torah; and what a reverence and appreciation we have gained for who He is, what He has done for His people and what He promises to do for each man who has His new covenant written in his heart.
In Deuteronomy 9 Moses reminds Israel’s seed, Yehovah’s Ezrach men, about what a stiff-necked people we were 40 years before. He reminded us how, right after we left Egypt and began receiving bread from heaven that we only remembered the leeks and the onions. We complained about water, and meat and how we set up an image and said “this is our Elohim who brought us out of Egypt.”
It was after this last event that Yehovah regretted that He had brought us out (with our families, our servants and the Ger who dwell with us) and even called us Moses’s people, whom he brought out of the land of Egypt. Yehovah was ready to destroy us but Moses pleaded for us and reminded Yehovah of the promise He made to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob and their descendants, their seed, after them. It was always about the land and the seed, the land and the seed. Yehovah even threatened to raise up new seed from Moses.
And I prayed to Yehovah, and said: ‘O my Master, Yehovah, do not destroy Your people and Your inheritance whom You have redeemed through Your greatness, whom You have brought out of Egypt with a mighty hand. Remember Your servants, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Do not look on the stubbornness of this people, or on his wickedness or his sin. Unless the land from which You brought us should say, “Because Yehovah was not able to bring them to the land which He promised them, and because He hated them, He has brought them out to kill them in the wilderness.” Yet they are Your people and Your inheritance, whom You brought out by Your mighty power and by Your outstretched arm.’ (Deu 9:26-29)
Thankfully Yehovah did repent of the evil He thought to do to His son, Israel, and their families.
New Covenant Written On Our Hearts
Chapter 10 begins with the replacement of the two tablets of the covenant and what I believe is a shadow picture of the new covenant and a future kingdom for the men of Yehovah that He is raising up, from old dry bones, even now. These two tablets are likened unto the tablets of our heart.
My son, keep my words, and my commands hidden within you. Keep my commands and live, and my Torah as the apple of your eye. Bind them on your fingers. Write them on the tablet of your heart. Say to wisdom, “You are my sister,” and call understanding your nearest kin. (Pro 7:1-4)
My son, do not forget my Torah, and let your heart keep my commands. For length of days and long life and peace they will add to you. Let not mercy and truth forsake you. Bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart, and so find favor and high esteem In the sight of God and man. (Pro 3:1-4)
Moses, a shadow picture of the 144,000 servants of Yehovah, was to cut two tablets for himself and present them before Yehovah so He could write His Torah on them. Could not Yehovah have made a set of tablets for Moses like He did the first time?
Here Is The New Covenant; Which Is Really A Renewed Covenant
“Behold, the days are coming, says Yehovah, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah. Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt; My covenant which they broke, though I was a husband [ba’al] to them, says Yehovah. But this is the new covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says Yehovah: I will put My Torah in their minds, and write it on their hearts. I will be their Elohim, and they shall be My people. (Jer 31:31-33)
Yehovah Covenant And His New Covenant Are One In The Same
Same Torah, same statutes, same ordinances , same judgments, but this time His nation, the Ezrach men have them written on their hearts. And, just as he began this chapter with his servants presenting blank tablets and saying “I will do whatever you write.” So now Yehovah says,
Therefore circumcise the foreskin of your heart, and be stiff-necked no longer. (Deu 10:16)
Moses then describes Yehovah to His Ezrach men, His precious seed. See if you can hear the grandeur and the reverence in the Hebrew that Moses conjures with these well-chosen words, words which my NKJV does such a poor job of translating because they leave out practically all of the definite articles.
For Yehovah, your Elohim [your lawmaker and judge]; HE is Elohim of THE elohim and Master of THE masters; THE El, THE great, THE mighty, and THE terrible … (Deu 10:17)
Oh – there is so much more that we talked about concerning Yehovah’s new covenant, but you will have to listen to discover for yourself what we found. The journey starts here.
