6But the ministry Jesus has received is as superior to theirs as the covenant of which he is mediator is superior to the old one, and it is founded on better promises.
7For if there had been nothing wrong with that first covenant, no place would have been sought for another. 8But God found fault with the people and said:
"The time is coming, declares the Lord,
when I will make a new covenant
with the house of Israel
and with the house of Judah.
9It will not be like the covenant
I made with their forefathers
when I took them by the hand
to lead them out of Egypt,
because they did not remain faithful to my covenant,
and I turned away from them, declares the Lord.
10This is the covenant I will make with the house of Israel
after that time, declares the Lord.
I will put my laws in their minds
and write them on their hearts.
I will be their God,
and they will be my people.
11No longer will a man teach his neighbor,
or a man his brother, saying, 'Know the Lord,'
because they will all know me,
from the least of them to the greatest.
12For I will forgive their wickedness
and will remember their sins no more."
13By calling this covenant "new," he has made the first one obsolete; and what is obsolete and aging will soon disappear.
God himself found fault with old covenant because He knows that we definitely cannot keep it and therefore will suffer all the bad consequences listed in Lev 26. God does not want us to suffer, and gave us a new and better covenant through Jesus (Heb 8:6). We don't have to suffer evil consequences under this new covenant because Jesus took our place and bore it all for us - "Surely he took up our infirmities and carried our sorrows, yet we considered him stricken by God, smitten by him, and afflicted. But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by his wounds we are healed." (Isaiah 53:4-5)
Moreover, Psalm 91:11-13 says "For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways; they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone. You will tread upon the lion and the cobra; you will trample the great lion and the serpent."
Is our Daddy God a schizophrenic? On the one hand He commands his angels to surround us with protection while on the other hand, He himself inflicts accidents on us to discipline us? NO! Of course NOT! God is LOVE.
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. (John 3:16-17)
Do not underestimate how much this little word "so" means to God. It cost God his only Son. It allowed us to call out to Him the same way Jesus did - "Abba! Daddy!" My Daddy God loves me so much that He will NOT discipline me by causing bad things to happen to me.
