All Covenants Made By God With Israel Were Done By Blood
- Thom Berkowitz talks about the ratification of God's covenants with Israel where he explains that all covenants were ratified with blood. Ever since the fall of mankind with Adam and Eve, there was a blood requirement for the offering of sin. The Hebrew scriptures, (Old Testament) gave us a picture of the Temple sacrifices that were made with the blood of animals as a foreshadowing of the one true offering of God's Son on the cross. The New Covenant of Jeremiah 31:31-34 tells us that God is going to give a new covenant, where He will write the laws of God on our hearts, and it will be a unique covenant, and we in the Church know this covenant to be death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
