New Testament Message

 Let me pose a question: what is the true New Testament Message? Or what is the New Covenant message to us?

Please note that we are not thinking what the New Covenant is, but simply what is the New Testament message, and how it is different from the Old covenant message.

Surely the New Testament message was spoken by our Lord Jesus Christ to all humans, in all nations and in all ages. It is an ageless, timeless message without any barrier of race and nations.

At the same time, we know that Jesus, primarily talked to the Jews living in Judea. Jesus lived and served as a Jewish rabbi, talking in their language, in a different culture and religious background.

That was God’s perfect plan. We read in Romans 1: 16 : “… it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek.” (NKJV)

The mystery of choice in the redemptive plan

Choice is an important topic in the Bible. The first choice made by human beings is recorded in the Garden of Eden. We read the story in Genesis 3In this video, we are going to spend some time to understand the spiritual mystery of that choice.

The chapters from Genesis 1 to 11 is a quick introduction to the plan of God to restore the Kingdom of God. It informs us in brief, how the Kingdom of God was lost and the plan of God to restore it. Since it is a speedy record, many details are missing.

Genesis 1 to 3 describes how humans fell into sin and the slavery of satan and thus how he lost the Kingdom of God.

These chapters reveal us that sin and slavery to satan was a choice of early humans. Adam and Eve chose to disobey God, to reject the holiness of God and they chose the slavery to sin and satan. This incident reveals that choice is very important to us in deciding our future eternal life.
