MANY OF OUR PULPITS TODAY MAKE GOD APPEAR UNGRACIOUS TO HIS PEOPLE BECAUSE OF THEIR IGNORANCE OF THE NEW COVENANT OF GRACE THAT GOD MADE THROUGH CHRIST AS ITS MEDIATOR. THEY ARE UNAWARE OF THE BENEFITS, CLAUSES AND PROVISIONS OF THE NEW COVENANT OF WHICH THEY WERE CALLED TO BE MINISTERS OF.
(2Cor 3:6) “He has made us competent as ministers of a new covenant—not of the letter but of the Spirit; for the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life.”
INSTEAD OF BEING MINISTERS OF THE NEW COVENANT (MINISTRY THAT BRINGS RIGHTEOUSNESS), THEY BECAME MINISTERS OF DEATH AND CONDEMNATION (MINISTERS OF THE OLD COVENANT OF THE LAW).
(2Cor 3:7-9) “But if the ministry of death, written and engraved on stones, was glorious, so that the children of Israel could not look steadily at the face of Moses because of the glory of his countenance, which glory was passing away, how will the ministry of the Spirit not be more glorious? For if the ministry of condemnation had glory, the ministry of righteousness exceeds much more in glory.”
