Jesus IS the gift

“I, the Lord , have called You in righteousness, And will hold Your hand; I will keep You and GIVE You as a covenant to the people, As a light to the Gentiles, (Isaiah 42:6 NKJV) [emphasis mine]

The Father has made a covenant
Between Himself and the Son,
We are just the recipients
Of the promises He has won.

The covenant was not made
Between the Godhead and the Church,
We don’t have to work to keep it
Jesus is the end of the search.

For the covenant is a gift 
Given to all who believe 
Jesus IS the gift
The mediator for those who see.

Galatians 3 tells us straight
To THE Seed were the promises made,
We simply receive the gift
We enter the covenant by faith.

Note: the new covenant is a covenant made between the Father and the Son; The Seed (capital “S”). This is Jesus. We RECEIVE covenant promises by faith. These promises are not conditional on my works or behaviour. The 10 commandments are NOT the conditions to the covenant. They pertain to the Mosaic covenant of which there is no oath like in the Abrahamic covenant. Therefore, you do no have to keep law to be saved (inlcluding keeping the Sabbath). However, these laws reflect Gods nature which becomes our nature by His Spirit who writes Love (the fulfillment of the law) on our hearts. This is the power of the new and everlasting covenant. All things have become new.

This is a gift for believers. That’s why the covenant has been GIVEN to us as a covenant as per Isaiah 42.
