It is important to know the different covenants and their conditions.

First the New Covenant Portion:

New Creation in Yeshua

Garment covering all covenants:

Therefore, if anyone is united with the Christ (Mashiach), he is a new creation - the old has passed; look, what has come is fresh and new. And it is all from G-d. who through the Mashiach has reconciled us to himself and has given us the work of that reconciliation, which is that G-d the Mashiach was reconciling mankind to himself, not counting their sins against them, and entrusting to us the message of reconciliation. Therefore we are ambassadors of Christ (Mashiach); in effect, G-d is making his appeal through us. What we do is appeal on behalf of the Christ (Mashiach), "Be reconciled to G-d. G-d made this sinless man be a sin offering on our behalf, so the in union with him we might share in G-d's righteousness. (2 Corinth. 5:17-21)

"See. The days are coming, "says Adonai, 'when I will establish over the house of Israel and over the house of Y'hudah a new covenant(creation). "It will not be like the covenant which I made with their fathers on the day when I took them by their hand and led them forth out of the land of Egypt." Says Adonai (Jeremiah 31:31-32)

"For this is the covenant which I will make with the house of Israel after those days,'says Adonai:

I will put my Torah in their minds and write it on their hearts; I will be their G-d, and they will be my people.

This happens from the day of our new birth, as we become a believer in Yeshua. We become a new creation.

"None of them will teach his fellow-citizen or his brother, saying, "Know Adonai!" For all will know me, from the least of them to the greatest, because I will be merciful toward their wickednesses and remember their sins no more."

This is again teaching about His New Kingdom for Jewish believers.

By using the term, "new," He has made the first covenant "old"; and something being made old , something in the process of aging, is on its way to vanishing altogether. (Heb. 8:13)

Jeremiah 31:34 "And they shall teach no more everyman his neighbor, and every man his brother, saying, Know the L-rd; for they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith the L-rd; for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more."

There is so, so little time. The One coming will indeed come. He will not delay. But the person who is righteous will live his life by faith (trusting), and if he shrinks back, I will not be pleased with him. (Hebrews 10:37)

Since much of the content of the new covenants' repeats the previous covenant promises, it may be best to represent this covenant as a "renewed covenant." It will fulfill the promises of the older covenants, but it is better by virtue of its clearer view of Yeshua, its promised experience of the Holy Spirit, and the greater grace it grants to believers.

New Covenant (Creation) portion:

Malki-Tzedek King of Shalem (Shalom) also King of righteousness brought out bread and wine. (This is a foreshadowing of Yeshua and His offering of self.)

He was cohen of El 'Elyon[G-d Most High], For every cohen gabol taken from among men is appointed to act on people's behalf with regard to things concerning G-d, to offer gifts and sacrifices for sin's. He can deal gently with the ignorant and with those who go astray, since he too is subject to weakness. And no one takes this honor upon himself, rather, he is called by G-d, just as Aaron was.

This is symbolic of Yeshua' being sent by the Father.

So Malki-Tzedek blessed Abram with these words:

"Blessed by Avram by El'Elyon,

maker of heaven of earth;

and blessed be El 'Elyon

who handed your enemies over to you."

Avram gave him a tenth of everything. The King of S'dom said to Avram, "Give me the people, and keep the goods for yourself." Abraham does not take spoils for these people. Abraham said he does not wish to take spoils because; he does not want others to think that he made him rich. This could be symbolic of Yeshua saying, He did not take anything because he did not want others to think Avram made Him rich. Malki-Tzedek took 1/10 of Abraham's goods for his people. This is symbolic of the people Yeshua' redeems. He is our Kingsmen redeemer. And like in Ruth His garment will cover us.

Ruth, a Gentile, and could be symbolic of the Gentile believers. Boaz was symbolic of Yeshua. So she fell on her face, prostrating herself, and said, to him,

"Why are you showing me such favor? Why are you paying attention to me? After all, I'm only a foreigner." Boaz answered her, "I've heard the whole story, everything you've done for your mother-in-law (Israel) since your husband died, including how you left your father and mother and the land you were born in to come to a people about whom knew nothing beforehand. May Adonai reward you for what you've done; may you be rewarded in full by Adonai the G-d of Israel, under whose wings you have come for refuge." She said, "My L-rd, I hope I continue pleasing you. You have comforted and encouraged me, even though I'm not one of your servants."

She told her mother-in-law (Symbolically Israel) "The name of the man with whom I was working today is Boaz" (Symbolically Yeshua) Na'omi (Israel) said to her daughter-in- law, "May he be blessed by Adonai, who has never stopped showing grace, neither to the living nor to the dead." Na'omi also told her, "The man is closely related to us; he's one of our redeeming kinsmen." She went down to the threshing-floor and did everything as her mother-in-law had instructed her....She stole in, uncovered his feet and lay down. Bo'az was later startled by a women lying at his feet. She answered, "I'm your handmaid, Spread your robe (garment) over your handmaid, because you are a redeeming kinsman. He said, "May Adonai bless you, my daughter, don't be afraid. I will do for you everything you say, for all the city leaders among my people know that you are a women of good character. (3:15)

Again, Symbolism of Gentile believers.

Also symbolic of the Spirit coming to help us and our promise of redemption.

(Ruth 2:10-13 ;3:6-10)

Ruth said to Na'omi (Israel),

"Don't press me to leave you and stop following you; for wherever you go, I will go; and wherever you stay, I will stay. Your people will be my people and your G-d will be my G-d. Where you die, I will die; and there I will be buried. May Adonai bring terrible curses on me, and worse ones as well, if anything but death separates you and me."

One might go further and say that Levi, who himself receives tenths, paid a tenth trough Avraham; in as much as he was still in his ancestor Avraham's body when Malki-Tzedek met him. Therefore, if it had been possible to reach the goal through the system of cohanim derived from Levi(since in connection with it , the people were given the Torah), what need would there have been for another, different kind of cohen, the one spoken of as to be compared with Malk-Tzedek and not to be compared with Aaron? For if the system of cohanim is transformed, there must of necessity occur a transformation of Torah. The one about whom these things are said belongs to another tribe, from which no one has ever served at the altar; for everyone knows that our L-rd arose out of Yhudah, and that Moshe said nothing about this tribe when he spoke about cohanim. It becomes even clearer if a "different kind of cohen," one like Malki-Tzedek, arises, one who became a cohen not by virtue of a rule in the Torah concerning physical descent, but by virtue of the power of an indestructible life. For it is stated, You are my Son; today I have become your Father," "You are a chohen forever, to be compared with Malki-Tzedek."

The MOSAIC COVENANT NEVER promised redemption. This New covenant portion DOES cover redemption and was paid in blood from Yeshua only. This Sabbath is the kingdom where all believers will go. The blind will see and the lame will walk.

The seventh day of the week (beginning on the evening of the sixth) is the Sabbath, the sign and covenant G-d gave only to Israel. Which Paul called "a shadow of things to come". (Col. 2:16), " a yoke of bondage" Under the new covenant a believer is free from this "bondage." This is not to say it is wrong to worship G-d on any given day. It should be done out of love, not requirement.

The true Sabbath where by one can enter into G-d's rest is fulfilled in the Mashiach (G-d's Lamb) who said:

Matt 11:28-12:1 - Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest (Sabbath) unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.

Heb 4:4-11 - For he spake in a certain place of the seventh day on this wise, And G-d did rest the seventh day from all his works. And in this place again, If they shall enter into my rest. Seeing therefore it remaineth that some must enter therein, and they to whom it was first preached entered not in because of unbelief: Again, he limiteth a certain day, saying in David, Today, after so long a time; as it is said, Today if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts. For if Jesus (Yeshua') had given them rest, then would he not afterward have spoken of another day. There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of G-d. For he that is entered into his rest, he also hath ceased from his own works, as G-d did from his. Let us labor therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief.

This will be the New kingdom entered in the coming seventh Millennium.

The voluntary ordinance of the church," communion" is also symbolic of the future "marriage supper of the lamb". (Rev. 19:9)

For if Y'hoshua had given them rest, G-d would not have spoken later of another " day." So there remains a Shabbat-keeping for G-d's people (believers in Yeshua). For the one who has entered G-d's rest (Kingdom) has also rested from his own works, as G-d did from his. Therefore, let us do our best to enter that rest; so that no one will fall short because of the same kind of disobedience...See, the word of G-d is alive. It is at work and is sharper than any double-edged sword - it cuts through to where soul meets spirit and joints meet marrow, and it is quick to judge the inner reflections and attitudes of the heart. Before G-d, nothing created is hidden, but all things are naked and open to the eyes of him to whom we must enter an account. Therefore, since we have a great cohen gadol who has passed through to the highest heaven, Yeshua, the son of G-d. let us hold firmly to what we acknowledge as true. For we do not have a cohen gadol unable to empathize with our weaknesses; since in every respect He was tempted just as we are, the only difference being that He did not sin. Therefore, let us confidently approach the throne from which G-d gives grace, so that we may receive mercy and find grace in our time of need. (Hebrews 4:8-16)

This covenant promises redemption for those whom trust in Yeshua.

Lot is symbolic of this new covenant and new believers in Yeshua. Scripture tells us in his life he hoped to influence his neighbors toward a better way of life. "lot" is derived from a Hebrew word meaning "covered"

This new covenant will cover all nations. (lets decide by lot who gets it.) The Romans soldiers threw lots to receive this "seamless" garment from Yeshua before He was crucified. I would gather that the soldier who received this garment was the same soldier whom later stated, "This truly was the Son of G-d." I think he was delivered by Yeshua to become a true believer. All under it will one day through trust like Lot will receive entrance to the kingdom. This new kingdom is described in Matt. 5 in the Sermon on the Mount. Genesis 13:11 likens it to "the garden of the L-rd." Lot went his own way, and moved to Sodom. G-d then said, his gaze would encompass the inheritance of all his seed, in perpetuity.

Adam's rib was symbolic of the New creation. Eve was symbolic of the bride of Yeshua. (Yeshua believers) Adam slept while G-d took one of man's ribs. This same Idea can be seen when Yeshua sleeping in the tomb and He arises to marry his bride. He was struck in the side by the Roman soldier. This also symbolizes the new creation of believers. His resurrection also shows that the believers will arise on a day of rest, the Sabbath Millennium. This same kind of foreshadowing can also be seen in other stories. Jacob for example, (His side was injured.)

All covenants are normally UNCONDITIONAL in the sense that G-d extends grace. To which is the acrostic:

G - G-d's

R ­ Riches

A ­ At

C ­ Christ's (Mashiach's)

E - Expense

"His will was to fulfill certain announced purposes, despite any failure on our part. The rainbow in Noah's time is said to have been a bow with the arrow pointed at G-d. He would take it upon Himself to complete the task.

For the law was so perfect it took perfection Himself to fulfill it. And by His mercy it's blessings can be given to us through Him.

There are kingdoms mentioned in the Book of Daniel. These kingdoms are of evil nature and are Satan's attempt to copy G-d's covenants.

The five Kings Abraham fought can also represent them.

These kingdoms Bera, Birsha, Shemeber, Bela, Shinab are mentioned with some of the covenants. This could be why Yeshua had five symbolic wounds on his body.

  1. Edenic- means "delight", garment could be the blue firmament.. (Gen. 2:2) Universal covenant.
  2. Former Empire- Bera-means, "of evil." Dictionary definition: "of or pertaining to evil. What covenant is that symbolic of? ADAMIC COVENANT "knowledge of good and evil"
  3. When the women saw that the fruit of the tree was good for food and pleasing to the eye, and also desirable for gaining wisdom, she took some and ate it. Then the eyes of both of them where both open, and they realized they were naked;

    The L-rd made garments of skin for Adam and his wife and clothed them.

    This is symbolic of G-d's garment covering the covenant of Adam.(Gen.3:21)

    Skins represent a sacrifice was needed.

    Then she said, "With the help of the L-rd I have brought forth a man."

    This is symbolic of the foreshadowing of women's seed providing the Mashiach.

    They were however banned from the Kingdom. (Universal Covenant) They were thrown out for not believing G-d. So to return to the new Kingdom under this new covenant, one only needs belief in Yeshua, nothing else added. However, G-d does want us to follow Him in love. This is to show our love for him, not for salvation. (trusting-obedience) The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, humility, self-control. Nothing in the Torah stands against such things.

    Adam answered, "I heard you in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked; so I hid." This is symbolic of believers who have not received their glorified body yet.

  4. Former Empire- Birsha- means, "of wickedness" Now that sounds like what brought the NOAHIC COVENANT.
  5. "The L-rd saw how great man's wickedness on the earth had become, and that every inclination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil all the time. "I now establish my covenant with you and with your descendants after you" (Gen. 9:8)

    Rainbow could be symbolic of the garment covering it. (Universal Covenant) Many colors, many nations.

  6. Former Empire-Shinab- means "hatred of the father" Sounds like the ABRAHAMIC COVENANT. The tent is symbolic of the garment. (Gen. 12:8)
  7. Abraham is symbolic of Yeshua. I have made you a father of many nations.(Gen.17:2) This promise was fulfilled in Yeshua. (Rom. 4:17) Yeshua was from Abraham's line, and truly the whole world was blessed through him. Yeshua said, If you see me, you see the Father.

  8. Former Empire- Shemeber- "To make a name for oneself" rebellion against G-d. MOSAIC COVENANT. (Exodus 19:9) (Only to Israel, CONDITIONAL) veil garment of blue and purple and the law was also put on skins if I'm not mistaken. (Exo. 26:31)
  9. Former Empire-Bela- meaning " a tiny thing" DAVIDIC COVENANT The Kingdom of Israel. (2 Sam. 7:1ff) (Not only to David but may overlap to the whole world in the reign of Yeshua')
  10. David was naked before the L-rd. Garment taken away.

  11. NEW COVENANT. All covenants are within this one. (The Kingdom of Yeshua) Yeshua's blood covered it. Yeshua's seamless garment may be the garment for the Kingdom. Paul stated: we are naked without him.
  12. Yeshua addressed them: Every day I was with you in the Temple court, teaching, and you didn't seize me then. But let the Tanakh be fulfilled." And they the disciples deserted him and ran away. There was one man who did try to follow him; but he was wearing only a nightshirt and ran away naked."

    Some believe this was John Mark since it was listed in Mark 14:48-52. Regardless, this nakedness is again symbolized without the L-rd. Before G-d, nothing created is hidden, but all things are naked and open to the eyes of him to whom we must render an account. (Hebrews 4:13)

    "For in this tent, out earthly body, we groan with desire to have around us the home from heaven that will be ours. With this around us we will not be found naked." (2 Cor 5:2)

    So we are always confident - we know that so long as we are at home in the body, we are away from home with the L-rd; for we live by trust, not by what we see. We are confident, then, and would much prefer to leave our home in the body and come to our home with the L-rd. Therefore whether at home or away from home, we try our utmost to please him; for we must all appear before the Mashiach's court, where everyone will receive the good or bad consequences of what he did while he was in the body. (These are only rewards or lack of rewards for believers) (2 Cor 5:6-8)

    When the new kingdom comes we will be clothed in his righteousness in white robes. They will probably be like the ones quoted in the robes given to the 144,000 Jewish believers taken out of Jacob's trouble. (Rev. 7)

    The promise comes by faith (trusting), so that it may be by grace and may be guaranteed to all Abraham's offspring - not only to those who are of the law but also to those who are of the faith of Abraham. Yeshua is symbolized in Abraham's life also.

    (Jewish people and Gentile people)(UNCONDITIONAL), The Spiritual response of a changed heart to the divinely announced plan of G-d is always important, leading as it does to salvation. One can never lose this salvation by actions or deeds; however, one receives blessing for obedience and discipline for disobedience. And there is the promise of rewards for good service or lack of rewards for lack of service. Praise G-d in His mercy, Human failure never stops the covenant or its fulfillment.

New Song of the Lamb

"Great and wonderful are the things you have done,

Adonai, G-d of heaven's armies!

Just and true are your ways,

King of the nations!

Adonai, who will not fear and glorify your name?

Because you alone are holy.

All nations will come and worship before you,

For your righteous deeds have been revealed."
