For when there is a change in the priesthood, there is necessarily a change in the law as well.

Hebrews 7:11-28

What is the relationship of laws on our hearts and the new covenant? (Jeremiah 31:33, Hebrews 8:10, Hebrews 10:16)

The law on believer’s hearts is the greatness, the glory of God’s holiness. For Jesus came to do the fullness of His Father’s will and now He abides in His own (John 15:1-17). He will continue to do so until the completion of God’s will is accomplished (Matthew 28:20). God’s law is love (Romans 13:10, 1 John 3:21-24). Jesus loved His Father and He loves His people (John 14:18-31). Now we are to go and do likewise.

God’s statutes were written according to the need and understanding of His people at the point they were at. At the beginning of knowing who “I Am” was and how to be His people, God taught the Israelites to be peculiar and unique, set apart for Him.

As the nation grew, split and were scattered, not only because they denied the law, but because they denied God, He proclaimed His judgment upon them as a nation of harlots (Isaiah 1:21-31, Jeremiah 2:20-37). His people could no longer be called “My people”, for when they returned to the land, the land of God’s promise, they chose another evil. They worshiped the Law, that which He created, and rejected Jesus, the Creator (John 5:37-40, Acts 21:25-28). The remnant remained true to God, they never turned away. Even when the wolves and snakes encircled and attacked, they are a witness and a testimony of Jesus Christ unto the rest of the nation and to the world (2 Corinthians 4:7-12).

When Jesus rose again, He conquered death, hell and the powers of the evil one. He also proclaimed the arrival of God’s Kingdom with His people which included those who have been told “they are not My people”. The great I Am is now Emmanuel who will never leave or forsake His own (Hebrews 13:5). They are united with God and His Son through the Holy Spirit (John 14:17, John 15:1-10, 1 John 2:24-25). For God is Love and Justice and Mercy and Truth. God is all that is right and good; His glory spans from eternity to eternity. This is what He has placed in the hearts of His children, “I Am and they are Mine.” That is the law that no evil can remove from the hearts of man. It is also the condemnation of those who trade it for lies of the world.

Hebrews 7:18 describes in detail how the old law is weak, useless and makes nothing perfect. In contrast Jesus’ new law that he establishes as our new High Priest is perfect and complete (Hebrews 7:22-28). Praise God for Jesus! What is impossible for man is possible with God!

Believe in the One who bore your sins and removes them as far as the east is from the west. When you do, Jesus says you are His and you are the Father’s too. Don’t let go. Warn others to hang on, for His word is true. All of it, from beginning to end, God desires mercy and love, for those are His truths by which one’s standard will be judged against. For by it Jesus lived and by it He died and by it He lives again. What other standard (law) could there possibly be? Thus, when one loves, they fulfill the Law, the righteous requirement to be in God’s presence. The veil has been torn.
