My opinion is this... According to the bible, the Jews (Israel) are the wife of God the Father. We as Christians (non Jewish belivers) and also Jews who accept Jesus as the MESSIAH are the bride of Christ. I love the OT and agree almost totally with the answers given above. Accept for my belief that all OT prophesies are not intended for Jews and ...

New Covenant believers (i.e. Christians), can certainly have the confidence that God regards them with at least as much care as that displayed in Jeremiah 29:11 for: ...Christ has obtained a ministry that is as much more excellent than the old as the covenant he mediates is better, since it is enacted on better promises. - Hebrews 8:6 ESV (emphasis ...

The moment I read your question, one passage jumped into my thoughts almost immediately. It's a favorite. Romans 8:28-39 NIV "All things work together for good." (vs 28) A often quoted passage. It doesn't promise us that we'll avoid bad things altogether. But it does give us assurance that in the end whatever we endure will be worth it. Just like in ...

The promises made to Israel were conditional promises. He had plans for them if they obeyed and kept His Holy Commandments. The rest of the nations were supposed to see Israel and come to God through their example. 'Now then, if you will indeed obey My voice and keep My covenant, then you shall be My own possession among all the peoples, for all the ...

It's important to look at this in further context--look at some of the verses following the portion you show: Number 5:21,27-28 NIV ...may the Lord cause you to become a curse among your people when he makes your womb miscarry and your abdomen swell ... And when he has made her drink the water, then, if she has defiled herself and has broken faith with ...

The Midianites were a demoralized army, ripe for defeat. First, when the original Israeli army of 30,000 assembled, it basically cut off the Midianites' food supplies. They could no longer send raiding parties into the surrounding countryside without their being captured. So the Midianites had to survive on whatever supplies they had on hand. Second, when ...

The only source of all mercy There is no ounce of mercy that Christ has not purchased with his death on the cross. If this were not the case, then why did Christ have to die? This is an issue of God’s justice: if mercy is the suspension of justice, how can God give mercy and yet be just? The answer is that Christ justly purchased mercy on the cross. But if ...

There seems to be a great misunderstanding here. There is no difference in the punishment between the Old and New Testaments. The differences are only in the immediacy of imposing punishment, and who makes that judgment. AS far as the immediacy goes; we are given the parable of the tares, by Jesus himself to illustrate that judgment is delayed, because the ...

Personally, I think that the primary difference is that the New Testament "gives to Caesar that which is Caesar's and to God that which is God's". There is, in essence, in the Christian faith, a separation from what is legal and what is right in faith in Christ. Whereas the Old Testament is both the law of God (those things that an individual should or ...

The old testament and the new testament take radically different approaches to righteousness. The Old Testament set up a Law which must be followed to live a perfect life and be saved. It set an impossible standard which could not be met. It also sought to isolate Israel from corruption by removing those who would have influences that would take them away ...
