TEXT: II Samuel 7: 1- 18
INTRODUCTION: Last week we discussed the Noahic, Abrahamic and Mosaic covenants. We shall conclude the types of covenants by considering the Davidic and the New Covenants.
The Davidic covenant was the promise made by God to David. This was an expression of His love for David. It was a covenant of mercy, everlasting kingdom, and one that is trans-generational. This was ultimately fulfilled in Jesus Christ, the Messiah and root of David (Is. 11:1). Jesus Christ is the mediator of the New Covenant. The New Covenant is the promise of God to humanity for the forgiveness of their sins and restoration of the fellowship with Him which was lost by man in the garden of Eden. The death of Christ on the cross removed the veil of access to His presence.
1) Davidic Covenant: II Sam. 7: 9-17; II Chr. 7:13-18; Lk. 1:1:32; Mt. 21:9
Covenant God made with David and communicated to him through Prophet Nathan. It reaffirmed Abrahamic and Mosaic covenants. A covenant of love, mercy, and everlasting kingdom
2) The New Covenant: Jer. 31:31-34; Rm. 2:25-29; Heb. 10:14-18; Lk. 22:19-20
This is the promise of God to engrave His laws and commandments in our hearts rather than tablets of stone. It gives us access to the presence of God through Christ. Jesus Christ is the mediator of the New Covenant. His death on the cross is the basis of the covenant. It restores man to the fellowship lost at the garden of Eden.
MEMORY VERSE: Hebrews 10:16 KJV
This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith the Lord, I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them
