New Covenant Bible Studies For Radical Freedom in Christ

Introduction to my New Covenant Bible Studies

 

The purpose of these New Covenant Bible studies is to encourage the believer and remove all doubt from their heart of their Fathers love for them and their complete and total forgiveness in Christ. Jesus often said “Oh you of little faith.” God desires that we live from faith to faith for our own benefit, with no doubt, fear, worry or anxiety in between. It is only Satan who wants believers to doubt God’s love and complete and total forgiveness towards those who believe. He knows that if we doubt God’s forgiveness for our past, present, and future sins even a little, we will doubt God’s love for us. This will lead us to live in insecurity that manifests itself in acts of sin and the inability to love others as God loves us. We cannot love much and walk by the Spirit until we know for certain we have been forgiven totally (Luke 7:47). If we live in doubt, Satan wins in this life because he knows that love is the only thing that fulfills God’s law (Rom 13:8-10).

The truth is there is absolutely no condemnation in the New Covenant of Grace and truth Jesus blood was shed to bring.  If you are walking in fear, guilt, worry, repetitive sin and condemnation, you are displaying symptoms of unbelief to parts of the message of His righteousness and grace. There is also a great possibility that you have been deceived into believing you are still under the Old Covenant letter of the law. While you may protest and claim you know you are not under the law, symptoms do not lie, and I urge you to set aside any pride and be honest about your symptoms before God. Are you walking in the victory Jesus died to give you? Are you reigning in life like the Bible teaches you should be? Do you reside in Jesus peace that overcomes all circumstances or are your feelings up and down based on your circumstances? Incorrectly believing we are still under the letter of the law is what brings sin consciousness, Rom 3:20 and condemnation. This leads to doubt about our salvation because if we believe we are under the law, we believe at least subconsciously that we must keep the law to be saved in addition to trusting Jesus. This falsely places the burden of our salvation upon us in our thoughts and minds which naturally leads to doubt and fear, because we know intuitively that we cannot keep God’s perfect standard in thought, word, and deed. The letter of the law leads us to be self and sin focused when the Bible teaches we are supposed to lose our life in Christ “he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it.” The Bible teaches that the Holy Spirit convicts us as believers of our complete righteousness in Christ – John 16:10. We are called to agree with the Holy Spirit and take captive our thoughts, to captivate our minds and thoughts to Jesus righteousness, to His finished work, to the obedience of Christ. Once you are firmly established in the gospel truth of God’s great love for you and your righteousness in Christ, you will begin to naturally display the fruits of the spirit which are peace, joy, patience, self-control, brotherly love and more. These fruits will replace the acts of sin you still see in your life. Restlessness will leave your life and the peace of Christ will rest upon you in all circumstances. His peace will lead you to sin far less and serve God out of love and gratitude instead of guilt, without effort.

This is not a difficult process; it really comes down to believing God our Father as a little child trusts a loving parent, childlike faith. Jesus did not die to see if you can qualify to get into heaven, he fully qualified you. God does not lie, if you believe Jesus is Lord and have placed your faith in Him, you have been saved and have become a co-heir with Christ, qualified to participate in the inheritance of the Saints – Col 1:12.

I accept that in Christ I am:

Greatly loved by God - Ephesians 2:4 - Forgiven of all my sins - Ephesians 1:7

Free from the law of sin and death - Romans 8:2 - Righteous - Rom 5:19

Complete - Colossians 2:10 NASB - Justified - 1 Corinthians 6:11

Sanctified - Hebrews 10:10 NASB - Holy and without blame - Ephesians 1:4

Perfected - Hebrews 10:14 NASB

The enemy tries to create doubt and unbelief about the truths in the above verses, just like he created doubt in Adam and Eve which led to sin. Doubting God’s love and our total forgiveness is what leads to sin. On the other hand, being firmly established in God’s love, total forgiveness and His righteousness in our minds and thoughts is what stops sin, replacing it with the fruits of the Spirit. Satan will try to get us to doubt by pitting less clear scriptures against very clear ones like John 3:16 which tells us we HAVE eternal life by believing. The enemy does this by enlisting well-meaning believers who are filled with doubt and fear themselves to spread doubt and fear to others. The truth is, some scriptures simply require more study in context to understand God’s word is not divided against itself causing confusion and uncertainty. Many of these studies explore those tough scriptures that Satan may be using to create doubt for you.

There are two main covenants in the Bible, the Old, and the New. Rightly dividing these covenants as a believer is paramount to reigning in this life. They must not be mixed as many believers do. To understand the Bible, a person must also know the intent and the heart of the author, and we see our Fathers intent and heart clearly in Jesus life and actions. Jesus is the exact image of Our heavenly Father. Your heavenly Father is for you and you will learn from scripture in these studies that He loves you as much as He loves Jesus. Everything He did was out of love for us, even the intent, the Spirit. of all of God’s laws is love as you will clearly learn from scripture in these lessons.

Renew Your Mind

We are called to believe God’s word, to renew our minds to the message of truth and grace in the New Covenant that Jesus shed His blood for.

For the Law was given through Moses; grace and truth were realized through Jesus Christ. John 1:17 NAS

And in the same way He took the cup after they had eaten, saying, "This cup which is poured out for we is the new covenant in My blood. Luke 22:20

Under the Old Covenant, fear of punishment is what kept a person from sinning. But it failed due to the weakness of man. Under the New Covenant, the love of Christ compels us to love and constrains us from sin, while God’s grace teaches us to live a Godly life. 2 Cor 5:14Titus 2:12

We all know how weeds can take over a garden with no tending. Think of your mind as a garden that needs tending, needs renewal or the weeds will take over. In this case, you do primarily focus on pulling weeds, you just need to start planting the right crop. You need to seed your mind, heart and daily thoughts with your right standing with God.  When the Bible tells us to take our thoughts captive to Christ's obedience, it is speaking of all of our thoughts, good and bad. Therefore, we totally captivate our mind and thoughts to the finished work of Christ, to who you are in Christ. I guarantee the fruits of the Spirit will grow and choke out the weeds and the fruits of peace, patience, joy, and others will take over. But you need to keep this focus as your priority because, at the slightest opportunity, the enemy will try and steal the good seed and plant weeds that will quickly take root. Keep your eyes on Jesus the author and perfecter of your faith, at all times.

It should be noted that the author is against all outward acts of sin. These studies will lead a person down the Biblical path manifesting the fruits of the Spirit which are necessary to defeat sin, even deep-rooted reoccurring sin in a believer’s life. They lead to His righteousness and His peace that overcomes all circumstances. Once you are firmly established, unshakeable and unmovable in His love, righteousness, and peace, start expecting Joy because it is coming and will naturally take root in your heart and mind. This is when you know intimately that His perfect love has cast out all of your fear.

The author agrees with Paul that believers are no longer under the law, we are under grace where sin is not counted by God, imputed to the believer. 

“…that is, in Christ God was reconciling the world to himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and entrusting to us the message of reconciliation” (2 Cor 5:19).

For sin will have no dominion over you, since you are not under law but under grace. (Rom 6:14)

“For the law brings wrath, but where there is no law there is no transgression” (Rom 4:15).

...sin is not counted where there is no law" (Rom 5:13)

...“I will remember their sins and their lawless deeds no more.” Heb 10:17

The author also agrees with Paul, believers should not sin just because God is not imputing sin to our account, holding it against us.

What then? Are we to sin because we are not under law but under grace? By no means! Romans 6:15 ESV

I recommend you get your Bible and do an in-depth study with me.
