NEW COVENANT BEHAVIOUR



Understanding the New Covenant Behaviour:

The New Covenant Behaviour is based on the sanctification (setting-apart) of the body in a progression towards the final goal of being in an esteemed body in likeness of our Master Yahusha. It’s like His body movement is just before our eyes (as seeing everything tied to His body depicted) as the Tent made without hands. As we walk in the light we see the shadows slowly passing by!

I term this as `Covenant Hebrew Mindset' because Abraham had this mindset as he saw the Day of Yahusha and rejoiced, walking Kenaan as a pilgrim, looking towards a better country, he saw Yitshaq (Isaac) being raised from the dead if he offered him (based upon the promise). Hence the New Covenant Behaviour (in the New Creation) is saying READ & UNDERSTAND THE INSTRUCTION - its purpose, its transition (because the commands are spiritual) and see where we stand.

We don’t discard the Old Testament just because we are in the New Covenant, we read the Commands, understand its shadows and purpose, yet we are not IN the literal Commands because the commands have transitioned to the Spiritual Royal Laws, and so have we ... spiritually transitioned and are in a PROGRESSIVE TRANSITION. We now look and discern the body of the Master to incorporate the New Bride Behavior, groaning to be clothed with the Tent from above, the Tent of Yahusha made without hands. We are no longer in the milk of the word but solid meat with our sense exercised to discern between good and evil.

I trust this makes sense to all in the New Creation Order, as we can’t be lawless, for the Instructions still exist (in shadows) as we see the Spirit in the letter and walk in the Spirit and not the letter. The elements of water and blood (of the womb) nourish the baby in gestation and without the elements the baby will die. The baby (once out of the womb) still looks at the path it came from with a desire to be in that warmth and nourishment of it but is now exposed to light and has to cope with various experiences outside of the womb, never to get back, but with a goal to grow to adulthood with solid meat being eaten.


The exposure brings the crying as it never cried in the comfort of the womb and its fed milk until it adapts to the environment around with an OUT OF THE WOMB BEHAVIOUR and begins to understand the path it went through and the way forward. The natural shows the spiritual because our Master took that transition path and we see His body, which went through this and we imitate Him with the highest level of sanctification in Him.


For eg.

THE ROYAL COMMAND: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself’

Let me share just 2 examples:

Example 1: You shall not commit adultery

The person who has a wife and never been into another woman would think He has not committed adultery. But the instruction has a behaviour attached which is a moral one, which our Master taught that if one looks at a woman lustfully has committed adultery in His heart with her. The failure of obeying the Command can be seen in what Shaul says that the Command is good and set-apart but we are carnal and slaves of sins. `Wretched man that I am, who will save me from this body of death?' He thanks the Master Yahusha.


The behaviour of being under the Command is also seen in Yasharal going after other mighty ones and despising her husband Yahuah who then divorced her and sent her away and she could never come back to Him. This is where Yahuah walked the Royal Law ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself’ in transitioning to the New Creation Order and setting His divorced wife from the Torah of her husband (Romans 7:1-4) and He redeems her from the spiritual adultery in making her cleansed in Himself as He drinks the bitter water of jealousy (gall on the stake) which the wife had to actually drink as per Torah for her test against adultery.

You may read this in NUM 5:14- 30.

Now the wife’s desire is towards her husband as told to Eve as she begins to see and behave, looking at the body of her husband which went through pain and suffering for her to be brought back to her.

GEN 3:16 "And your desire is for your husband, and he does rule over you".

What an amazing Yahusha Aluahym we have!


Example 2 : “You shall not kill”

A person who has caused no literal murder would think he has obeyed the law. But the instruction has a behaviour attached, which is a moral one and it’s says that whoever hates his brother is a murderer!

1Jn 3:15 Everyone hating his brother is a murderer, and you know that no murderer has everlasting life staying in him.

1Jn 3:16 By this we have known love, because He laid down His life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for the brothers.


Yahusha also taught when you bring your gift to the altar and there remember your brother holds something against you, leave your gift on the altar and go and reconcile with your brother.

Mat 5:23 “If, then, you bring your gift to the slaughter-place, and there remember that your brother holds whatever against you,

Mat 5:24 leave your gift there before the slaughter-place, and go, first make peace with your brother, and then come and offer your gift.

The morality in the Law/Instruction is of the highest level and here again Yahusha comes to our rescue

Act 3:14 “But you denied the Set-apart and Righteous One, and asked that a man, a murderer, be granted you".

Act 3:15 “But you murdered the Prince of life, whom Elohim raised from the dead, of which we are witnesses".

Mat 27:20 But the chief priests and elders persuaded the crowds that they should ask for Barabba and to destroy יהושע.


In exchange for Yahusha, they asked for a murderer to be released, whose name was ‘Barabba’ בר־אבא

BAR בר is a Hebrew/Aramaic word for 'Son'

ABA אבא in Hebrew means 'Father'


So they asked the murderer who once was ‘Son of the Father’ in exchange for the actual Son of the Father: Yahusha, for in His transition journey

He came in Sonship to give us the adoption as sons.


They always sought to kill Him

John 7:19 “Did not Mosheh give you the Torah? Yet not one of you does the Torah! Why do you seek to kill Me?”

HE WAS NUMBERED WITH THE TRANSGRESSORS IT SAYS, WHEN THEY CAME WITH CLUB AND SWORDS TO ARREST HIM. WE ARE THE BARABBA WHO NOW REALISE AND SEE THE BODY OF THE MASTER THAT WENT TO THE STAKE, TO DELIVER US FROM THIS ATTITUDE WE HAD IN DISOBEDIENCE TO HIS LAWS/INSTRUCTIONS AND WE CORRECT OUR BEHAVIOUR SEEING THE LAW IS SPIRITUAL AND WE TRANSITION INTO THE SPIRITUAL REALITY IN THE BODY OF OUR MASTER WITHOUT BEING IN THE LITERAL COMMAND FOR THE COMMAND ITSELF HAS TRANSITIONED TO “LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF “


As a Jew who now converted to Messiah (and in the land) would understand why Yahuah (in Torah) asked to leave the corners of the field for the poor of the land and why in a Shemitah ie. Every 7th year, 49th year and 50th year they were not to sow and reap but eat what grows of itself and allow the poor of the land to eat anything that grew from their land, and in every Shemitah there was a slave release which was written in Torah and we see Shaul the Apostle writing to Philemon reminding him to take Onesimus who once was his slave but had converted to Messiah when Shaul was in chains. Philemon was asked to receive him back as a brother.


THE INSTRUCTION TRANSITIONED AND SO DID WE IN MESSIAH in understanding the instruction and the shadow pointing to the light in Messiah. We look at Him and His love and we display a right intended behaviour. Isn’t that something wonderful?


These things are not easily understood by a carnal-mind without Scriptures from where we get the instruction, our transition path (where we stand) in understanding the instruction and the shadows pointing to the light in Mashiyach and looking at His body which we are part of in a sanctification (set-apart) behaviour to obey the instruction in its spiritual transition as it becomes real in the body of Mashiyach. It’s called PROGRESSIVE SANCTIFICATION for us which also means we are in a PROGRESSIVE TRANSITION towards the goal, Who is Mashiyach the Tent made without hands and is Heavenly.


The body is not for fornication but for the Master and the Master for the body. The sanctification is of the highest level if we understand that the firstborns who were priests (before the Levite Priesthood came) were asked to sanctify themselves before, when Yahuah came down on Mt Sinai. And we are told in Hebrews 12 that it’s THE SAME VOICE THAT SPOKE which will shake both the heavens and the earth, the Mt Tsyion that we have all gathered to. This is the Royal Priesthood restored to the highest sanctification in Mashiyach, because those first-borns who were Priests at Mt Sinai had a boundary which they couldn’t cross over but we have no boundaries and we run to Yahusha as Royal Priests.


HEB 2:11 "For both He who sanctified and those who are sanctified are all of One, for which reason He is not ashamed to call them brothers".


All are of ONE ie. Mashiyach Yahusha and by calling us brethren, He makes it clear that just as He went `beyond the veil' into the Throne Room as our forerunner, the access to it is now ours also in Him. The PROGRESSIVE TRANSITIONING of us takes us to the throne room to see that it is Yahusha seated on the throne with the pavement of sapphire under His feet which are His pathway of royal laws we need to walk on (Exo 24:10). The topic is vast so i'm sharing all in a nutshell so that we display the right behaviour in our sanctification.
