More on Constitutional Amendments--the Biblical Variety


Posted by Matt Postiff December 12, 2012 on Matt Postiff's Blog under Dispensationalism 

In my previous post on this subject, I mentioned two texts that indicated an upcoming change in the way God dealt with the nation of Israel. One was Deuteronomy 18:15, and the other was Psalm 110:4. The first promises another prophet and the second promises another priest. Particularly with the priest, there had to be a change of the divine law, because the new priest would not be from the line of Aaron.

There is another key text that must be considered because it indicates a major change in the "constitution." It is Jeremiah 31:31-34. Here, the Bible promises another covenant. It is not like the covenant that God made with Israel in the days of Moses. Israel broke that covenant, and God, by so saying here in Jeremiah, shows us that He is pleased to set it aside in favor of something new and better.

This new covenant is the subject of extensive revelation in the Hebrew Bible, as well as in the New Testament. Jesus Himself said, "This cup is the new covenant in my blood, which is shed for you" (Luke 22:20 NKJV).

Certainly God made provision for changing His dealings with mankind from the old Mosaic covenant, with a new prophet and a new priest and a new covenant. We Christians are convinced that this program change centers around Jesus of Nazareth, the Son of God. Stay tuned...
