A New Covenant for Israel (SD08)

Jer 31:31  “Behold, the days are coming, says the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah— not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt, My covenant which they broke, though I was a husband to them, says the Lord. But this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says the Lord: I will put My law in their minds, and write it on their hearts; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people. No more shall every man teach his neighbor, and every man his brother, saying, ‘Know the Lord,’ for *they all shall know Me, from the least of them to the greatest of them, says the Lord. For I will forgive their iniquity, and their sin I will remember no more.”
 
1. I will put My law in their minds
    The Helper will bring His words to our remembrance.
John 4:26  "But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you."
2. I will write it on their hearts;
 
3. they shall be My people, and I will be their God.
    They will accept Jesus as their Messiah and once again become His people

4. No more shall every man teach his neighbor... they all shall know Me, from the least of them to the greatest of them,
    The Helper will teach us all things.
John 4:26a  "But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things,"

5. For I will forgive their iniquity, and their sin I will remember no more.
    At our confession or repentance, the blood of our Lord Jesus will cleanse all our sins.
1John 1:9  If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

      After Rapture the Grace will be upon Israel
Jer 11:19-20  Then I will give them one heart, and I will put a new spirit within them, and take the stony heart out of their flesh, and give them a heart of flesh, that they may walk in My statutes and keep My judgments and do them; and they shall be My people, and I will be their God.
     Since the Helper or Spirit of truth (new Spirit), is given to the Israelites, then they have become His beloved Christians by His grace (144,000 Israelites in Rev 7:4-8; 14:1-5). Thank God that the Israelites will be saved by grace when they believed our Lord Jesus who comes for His elects at Rapture.
Zec 12:10  "And I will pour on the house of David and on the inhabitants of Jerusalem the Spirit of grace and supplication; then they will look on Me whom they pierced. Yes, they will mourn for Him as one mourns for his only son, and grieve for Him as one grieves for a firstborn."

Rom 11:26-27  And so all Israel will be saved, as it is written: "The deliverer will come out of Zion, and He will turn away ungodliness from Jacob; for this is My covenant with them, when I will take away their sins."
