God’s Eternal Covenant

Pastor Charles Haddon Spurgeon (1834-1892)

“…I will put My laws in their mind and write them on their hearts; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people [born-again Jews and Gentiles]…and their lawless deeds I will remember no more. …In that He says, ‘A new covenant,‘ He has made the first obsolete.” Hebrews 8:10-13 and Jeremiah 31:33

“…I will not forget you. See, I have inscribed you on the palms of My hands.” Isaiah 49:15-16

It is not my remembering God, it is God’s remembering me which is the ground of my safety; it is not my laying hold of His covenant, but His covenant’s laying hold on me. Glory be to God! the whole of the bulwarks of salvation are secured by divine power, and even the minor towers, which we may imagine might have been left to man, are guarded by almighty strength.

Even the remembrance of the covenant is not left to our memories, for we might forget, but our Lord cannot forget the saints whom he has graven on the palms of his hands. It is with us as with Israel in Egypt; the blood was upon the lintel and the two side-posts, but the Lord did not say, “When you see the blood I will pass over you,” but “When I see the blood I will pass over you.”

My looking to Jesus brings me joy and peace, but it is God’s looking to Jesus [our Redeemer] which secures my salvation and that of all his elect, since it is impossible for our God to look at Christ, our bleeding Surety, and then to be angry with us for sins already punished in him. No, it is not left with us even to be saved by remembering the covenant. There is no linsey-woolsey (a coarse cloth made from linen interwoven with wool or cotton) here-not a single thread of the creature mars the fabric.

It is not of man, neither by man, but of the Lord alone. We should remember the covenant, and we shall do it, through divine grace; but the hinge of our safety does not hang there – it is God’s remembering us, not our remembering him; and hence the covenant is an everlasting covenant.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Charles Haddon (C.H.) Spurgeon (19 June 1834 – 31 January 1892) was a British Particular Baptist preacher. Spurgeon remains highly influential among Christians of different denominations, among whom he is known as the “Prince of Preachers”. He was a strong figure in the Reformed Baptist tradition, defending the Church in agreement with the 1689 London Baptist Confession of Faith understanding, and opposing the liberal and pragmatic theological tendencies in the Church of his day.

Spurgeon preached to around 10,000,000 people,[1] often up to 10 times each week at different places. Spurgeon was the pastor of the congregation of the New Park Street Chapel (later the Metropolitan Tabernacle) in London for 38 years.[2] He was part of several controversies with the Baptist Union of Great Britain and later had to leave the denomination.[3] In 1857, he started a charity organization which is now called Spurgeon’s and works globally. He also founded Spurgeon’s College, which was named after him posthumously.

Spurgeon was a prolific author of many types of works including sermons, an autobiography, commentaries, books on prayer, devotionals, magazines, poetry, hymns and more.[4][5] Many sermons were transcribed as he spoke and were translated into many languages during his lifetime. Spurgeon produced powerful sermons of penetrating thought and precise exposition. His oratory skills held throngs of listeners spellbound in the Metropolitan Tabernacle and many Christians have discovered Spurgeon’s messages to be among the best in Christian literature.

FAITHFUL FOLLOWER OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST: HOW HE LOVES THE LORD!

Former Texas priest John Fiala found guilty of plotting the murder of man who accused him of sexual abuse
(Credit: AP)
(CBS/AP) DALLAS, Texas – A Dallas County jury found a former Roman Catholic priest guilty of hiring a hit man to kill the man who accused him of sexual abuse.
The jury of three men and nine women returned its verdict on John M. Fiala after a few hours’ deliberation Thursday afternoon, The Dallas Morning News reported. Testimony began in the penalty phase and Fiala could be sentenced to up to life in prison for solicitation of capital murder.
Prosecutors said Fiala tried to hire a neighbor’s brother to kill his accuser. The alleged victim accused Fiala of abusing him in 2008, when he was 16 years old and Fiala was the priest at a rural West Texas parish.

John Rocket,

I have no intention of speaking to you about Pastor Sanders. Your comments make no sense whatsoever and I will not waste my time trying to understand the evil expressed by you. I have written enough over and over again to you, John Rocket. Therefore . . .

[Matthew 7:6 KJV] Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you.

You blaspheme God today, but one day you will regret all the comments you have left at this Watchwoman on the Wall blog. They will be used by Satan to convict you of your evilness.
Again, I urge you, nevertheless to repent.

Read: “Inspirational. Do you know for sure?” posted on Tuesday July 26, 2011 located at
http://blog.beliefnet.com/watchwomanonthewall/?p=4928

Because one day you will die and then you will believe — BECAUSE
[Hebrews 9:27] And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:
— and if you do not repent and believe now, you will die in your sins and find yourself condemned to the second death.
Satan will laugh at you all the way to hell and for all eternity you will reside with the likes of Pol Pot, Hitler, Stalin, Mao, Marx, Lenin, every serial killer who never repented, every rapist, every pervert, every murderer, every human who ever lived and died who have committed the most evil, heinous sins for which they have never repented of. They will be your roommates in hell.

I pity you.

Jeremy,

You wrote: “So… if a child of God lives a Godly life for many many years, and then something happens in life that turns him against God and he turns to a truly ungodly life – day in & day out, he would still be saved??”

I am so glad that you have brought up one of the most misunderstood concepts of the Mystery of God and Eternal Salvation.

Nothing could turn one’s heart against God if they were truly saved, and this is why.
That person would be so grieved by their feelings towards God, they would repent.

They would trust God knowing that He loves them. That is what it means to be truly saved, not just a phony Christian looking good in a dark blue suit on Sunday going to church, singing in the choir, doing many good works as a lay person, and then going off to commit who knows what with whom and then turning away from God declaring that God wouldn’t have given me these feelings for Ms. So’n’so if he didn’t want me having an affair with her. Or if some horrible thing befalls someone, their child gets into drugs and dies of an overdoes. If that person is truly saved, they won’t blame God and go off into evil. They will say to themselves, “Let God’s will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.”

Recite the Lord’s Prayer. You’ll hear how a genuine Christian would react to an evil or a tragedy that would make a phony Christian turn away from God.

If a man or woman is truly saved they would never turn away, they will WANT to serve God and Jesus Christ all of their lives.

Will they sin? Yes, of course, but it will most likely be sins of omission rather than commission (for the most part, not always).

Here is a parable that Jesus spoke and it explains salvation very well. The difference that is between people who are truly saved and those who look saved for a while (even if that is a long time in human years.) Remember 1,000 years to God is like a day, and a day like a thousand years.

The sower represents the person bringing the Gospel of Jesus Christ to an unsaved person and it also represents the Holy Spirit – the only Entity that can save a person. You or I cannot save anyone. Verses 4-7 speak of people who to varying degrees look saved for a while. Verse 8 represents the truly saved person.

[Matthew 13:3-13 KJV] And he spake many things unto them in parables, saying, Behold, a sower went forth to sow; [ 4 ] And when he sowed, some seeds fell by the way side, and the fowls came and devoured them up: [ 5 ] Some fell upon stony places, where they had not much earth: and forthwith they sprung up, because they had no deepness of earth: [ 6 ] And when the sun was up, they were scorched; and because they had no root, they withered away. [ 7 ] And some fell among thorns; and the thorns sprung up, and choked them: [ 8 ] But other fell into good ground, and brought forth fruit, some an hundredfold, some sixtyfold, some thirtyfold. [ 9 ] Who hath ears to hear, let him hear. [ 10 ] And the disciples came, and said unto him, Why speakest thou unto them in parables? [ 11 ] He answered and said unto them, Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given. [ 12 ] For whosoever hath, to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance: but whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken away even that he hath. [ 13 ] Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand.

You will know those who are truly saved, Jeremy, by their fruit. The truly saved will bring about much good fruit.

Jeremy wrote: We don’t have to remain dedicated to Him for life?

Yes, we do have to be dedicated to Him for life!

Jeremy wrote: Just ‘long enough’ to be saved?

We are saved in an instant! As Scripture says:

[Acts 16:31 KJV] And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved,

[Romans 10:9 KJV] That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.

As soon as we repent and believe and accept Jesus Christ as our propitiation for our sins, we are saved (but I caution you again, someone can LOOK saved and not be actually saved.”

We are saved to do good works! We are saved to carry out . . .
THE GREAT COMMISSION.
[Matthew 28:18-20 KJV] And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. [19 KJV] Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: [20 KJV] Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

We are saved to represent Jesus Christ. We are to be His Ambassadors on Planet Earth. We are saved to fight Satan and his evil agenda for every moment of our lives once we are saved.

Jeremy wrote: (If we are faithful until death, we will be rewarded.)

Rewarded is the operative word, Jeremy, and how right you are, my friend! We shall receive rewards called crowns in heaven and those crowns that we receive we will be privileged to cast at the LORD’S feet. But rewards/crowns are NOT salvation. Salvation is granted here on earth (read Acts 16:32 and Romans 10:9 again).

We are saved by grace and grace alone and not of our good works, lest we should boast.

[Ephesians 2:8-9 KJV] For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: [ 9 ] Not of works, lest any man should boast.

Jeremy, if when a human being is truly saved, that salvation is SEALED by the Holy Spirit and kept in heaven.

[Ephesians 1:13 KJV] In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise,

You do not hold your salvation, the Holy Spirit does; therefore, you cannot lose what you do not hold. I never have to worry about misplacing or losing anything that is sealed away in a bank’s safety deposit box. Heaven and earth and the Holy Spirit would have to cease to exist for a truly saved man to lose his salvation!

Do we receive correction? Yes, Sir, we do.

[Psalms 23:4 KJV] Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.

God has a staff to gently guide us, but if we don’t take heed, then He uses His rod to chastise us back into the Center of His Will.

Read all of Romans 8, but here’s just a highlight!

[Romans 8:1-2 KJV] There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. [ 2 ] For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.

[Romans 8:38-39 KJV] For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, [ 39 ] Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

And that is the Good News of the Gospel of Jesus Christ!

May God receive all the thanks for eternal salvation, all the glory, all honor due Him and may I praise Him forever and ever, AMEN!

I hope this explains it to you, Jeremy. If you have any more questions or comments, please feel free to express them.

Father God in heaven, I pray for Jeremy who is a searcher of the truth. God grant him Divine answers in Your Holy Written Word, the King James Bible, so that he may know the Truth, for the Truth is what shall make us seekers free. I pray in the Name of Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God, who came to earth to save each man who accepts Jesus Christ to find eternal salvation forever and ever releasing us to receive the peace that passeth all understanding, the peace of Christ. Beginning today, and for all the rest of our days, let us confess to You Lord, that our lives, our wills, our desires, our thoughts, our deeds, every good work, we ask that You find acceptable and may we always do Your Perfect Will, in the Name of Jesus Christ. Bring to our minds quickly, LORD, every offense, so that we may confess it to You quickly. Let us keep short accounts with You Father in heaven, Creator of the Universe, my King, my Lord. Let me adore You today and serve You today. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.

[Philippians 4:7 KJV] And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

So… if a child of God lives a Godly life for many many years, and then something happens in life that turns him against God and he turns to a truly ungodly life – day in & day out, he would still be saved?? We don’t have to remain dedicated to Him for life? Just ‘long enough’ to be saved? Paul said, in Galatians 6:9, “And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not loose heart.” (IF we do not lose heart). And Rev. 2:10 says, “Be faithful until death, and I will give you the crown of life.” (If we are faithful until death, we will be rewarded.) Faithfulness until death is necessary if we are to keep our salvation. God tells us, in these passages and so many more, that if we dump Him – at any point in our lives – and then die without returning to Him, we will lose that great gift He has given to us.

so Pastor Sandors believes that he is right up there with the Prophets of the Bible. He can add his own God given wisdom? This passage spoke to Jews. Not gentiles, not Christians.If that is a problem then I suggest that you drop your reinvented paganism which worships human sacrifice and follow the Bible as it was actually written-not how you would have liked it to be written.
