Show and Tell

I’ve heard people say that the God of the Old Testament isn’t the same as the God of the New Testament.

Is there a difference? And what is it?

I think the difference is this: In the Old Testament God told us what to do. In the New Testament he asks us to follow his will and he even provided us with an example to show us the way.

Hebrews 4:14-16 KJV
Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession. [15] For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. [16] Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.

Choosing Culture

Psalm 45:6 KJV
Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: the sceptre of thy kingdom is a right sceptre.

Israel has chosen culture over God.

They are a nation once again. They have revived the Jewish language and traditions, but when will they choose their God over the past?

Only by recognizing Jesus as the Christ, our Messiah, will they come to God. Living under the Old Testament they falsely believe they can approach God the Father directly. We who live under the New Testament know better. 1 Timothy 2:5 KJV For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;

In the days of Esther, the King extended his scepter granting life to those unbidden before him. Jesus is the royal scepter extending life from Jehovah to those that seek him.

May Israel choose Jesus and the New Testament over their culture, soon.
