MEDIATOR BIBLE STUDY

WHAT IS A MEDIATOR BIBLE ENTITY?

WHO IS THE MEDIATOR IN THE BIBLE?

A Mediator is defined as a negotiator who acts as a link between parties.

The Bibles reveals that Jesus is the MEDIATOR of the New Covenant.

1 Timothy 2:5
For there is one God, and
one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus
... 

 

Hebrews 8:6
But now hath he obtained a more excellent ministry, by how much also
He is the mediator of a better covenant, which was established upon better promises.
 

Hebrews 9:15
And for this cause
He (Jesus) is the mediator of the new testament, that by means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions that were under the first testament, they which are called might receive the promise of eternal inheritance.
 

The Bible is CLEAR ... Jesus is the MEDIATOR between us and God cuz mankind broke the Old Covenant and Jesus brought in the New Covenant and only thru JESUS can our prayers be heard by God. Let’s do a lil exploring shall we?

MEDIATOR BIBLE STUDY ON MEDIATOR BIBLE FACTS WITH MEDIATOR BIBLE MESSAGE

If you have not already, you may want to read the New Covenant study in the C-O-O-L Christian Walk Studies to become more familiar with what the Bible shares about the New Covenant.

We are taught to plant seeds of TRUTH and we are to WATER those seeds within ourselves, so I would like for us to do a lil watering so God can do a lil increase within us.

1 Corinthians 3:7-9
So then neither is he that planteth any thing, neither he that watereth; but God that giveth the increase. Now he that planteth and he that watereth are one: and every man shall receive his own reward according to his own labour. For we are labourers together with God: ye are God's husbandry, ye are God's building.
 

For those who have read the New Covenant study/sermon ... I would like to "WATER" what we have learned a bit more and expand on the meaning of this New Covenant, look into how Jesus is the MEDIATOR of this New Covenant and how it affects your life today …

A "covenant" is an agreement between two parties. In this case the agreement was between God and man. It was based on LAW given to the people by God, through Moses. The Old Testament of the Bible, is based on this Old Covenant.

But, the Bible teaches us that God chose to create a NEW Covenant and this New Covenant is revealed by the New Testament. Our Father told us in the Bible that we will KNOW that He is God cuz He tells us things that will happen before they occur. Did our Father prophecy, through His servants the prophets, of the coming of this New Covenant? ABSOLUTELY ...

Jeremiah 31:31-34
Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that 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 bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they brake, although I was an husband unto them, saith the LORD: But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people. And they shall teach no more every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the LORD: for they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith the LORD: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will REMEMBER THEIR SIN NO MORE.
 

God said that He would place the LAW within our hearts and forgive all of our sins and remember the sins no more. Now this does NOT mean that the Law is of no effect, rather it is saying that when you believe in Jesus, God will place the laws within your heart. It is confirmed that He had performed this act in the New Covenant (Testament) ... It says that God found the Old Covenant to possess faults and that Jesus is the mediator of the New Covenant (Testament)

Hebrews 8:6-8
But now hath He (Jesus) obtained a more excellent ministry, by how much also He (Jesus) is the mediator of a BETTER covenant
, which was established upon BETTER promises. For IF THAT FIRST COVENANT HAD BEEN FAULTLESS, then should no place have been sought for the second. FOR FINDING FAULT with them, He saith, Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, when I will make a NEW COVENANT with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah.
 

God found FAULT with the Old Covenant ... A BETTER Covenant was made, which had BETTER promises, as the first was NOT FAULTLESS. God found FAULT with the PRACTICES and PROMISES because His people could not abide by the first Covenant.

So in LOVE ... He made a BETTER Covenant that His people could abide by with BETTER promises. Yes, Our Lord is PERFECT and what He does is PERFECT. But ... A STRANGE thing happened on the way to PERFECTION.

Much like in we find in the book of Genesis ...

Genesis 6:6
And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved Him at his heart.
 

God created man and man is NOT perfect. NOT because the DESIGN was flawed, but rather because in LOVE, God gave mankind FREE WILL. Throw in the enemy of our souls and the choices from this FREE WILL altered the PERFECTION thereof. And God ... Found fault.

So God's Perfect Covenant ... In a perfect world have been effective, but His children fell and were not perfect and in LOVE, He created an even BETTER Covenant that His children could deal with. When God found the FAULT with the Old Covenant ... God did not change man by removing Free Will, but rather changed the COVENANT. In this Covenant based on LOVE ... HE will place the laws in the hearts of man.

Soooooo, in order to save His children, He had to sacrifice His Son Jesus as to establish a NEW blood Covenant worthy of cleansing the sins of the people ... In the days of Moses, blood was sprinkled on the people to establish the Old Covenant. (Kinda like a blood pact between friends) Now, in the New Covenant, it is the blood of Jesus that established the New Covenant.

Matthew 26:28
For this is my
blood of the NEW TESTAMENT, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.
 

 

Hebrews 13:20
Now the God of peace, that brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant
, make you perfect in every good work to do His will, working in you that which is well pleasing in His sight, through Jesus Christ; to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.
 

Now let’s talk about how this New Covenant affects YOU in your Christian walk … We now know that Jesus is the MEDIATOR or BRIDGE between you and God. You can NOT get to God without going thru JESUS. So if you have been praying, but not saying “In Jesus name” … Your prayers are not being heard.

We are taught to Always ask in Jesus’ name ...

John 14:13-14
And whatsoever ye shall ask IN MY NAME, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If ye shall ask any thing IN MY NAME, I will do it.
 

Jesus is the GATEWAY between the Old Covenant and New Covenant. Between the old outcome and the renewed Eternal Promise ...

John 10:9
I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved
, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.
 

You MUST enter in the JESUS door to get to God ...

John 16:23-26
And in that day ye shall ask me nothing. Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall ask the Father IN MY NAME, He will give it you
. Hitherto have ye asked nothing IN MY NAME: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full. These things have I spoken unto you in proverbs: but the time cometh, when I shall no more speak unto you in proverbs, but I shall shew you plainly of the Father. At that day ye shall ask IN MY NAME: and I say not unto you, that I will pray the Father for you.
 

So we pray ... TO God THRU Jesus … Simple enough. But we also have been taught to pray BY the Holy Spirit ...

Romans 8:26-27
Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities:
for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered
. And He that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because He maketh intercession for the Saints according to the will of God.
 

Sooooooo, our prayer comes from our Soul and is FELT by our own spirit and the HOLY SPIRIT feels it and makes intercession for us thru Jesus to GOD. The Holy Spirit INTERPRETS our Prayers. Pretty cool huh?

What are the LAWS of this new Covenant? Have the laws themselves changed?

Most that study God's Word use this Scripture to reveal that the Laws have NOT changed.

Matthew 5:18
For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.
 

So it seems the New Covenant which is based on better promises still has LAWS … BUT, who was Jesus talking to? Who were Jesus and the Apostles preaching of the New Covenant to?

Matthew 10:5-6
These twelve Jesus sent forth, and commanded them, saying,
Go not into the way of the Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritans enter ye not: But go rather to the THE LOST SHEEP OF THE HOUSE OF ISRAEL.

  

Matthew 15:22-24
And, behold, a woman of Canaan came out of the same coasts, and cried unto Him, saying, Have mercy on me, O Lord, thou son of David; my daughter is grievously vexed with a devil. But He answered her not a word. And His disciples came and besought Him, saying, Send her away; for she crieth after us. But He answered and said,
I AM NOT SENT BUT UNTO THE LOST SHEEP OF THE HOUSE OF ISRAEL.

Jesus made it clear He was sent to the Lost sheep of ISRAEL (At least at that time) But there were faithful gentiles (Those who were not Jewish) who Jesus was amazed at their Faith and performed miracles for.

Matthew 15:25-28
Then came she and worshipped Him, saying, Lord, help me. But He answered and said, It is not meet to take the children's bread, and to cast it to dogs. And she said, Truth, Lord: yet the dogs eat of the crumbs which fall from their masters' table. Then Jesus answered and said unto her, O woman, great is thy faith: be it unto thee even as thou wilt. And her daughter was made whole from that very hour.

Jesus had come to end the Old Covenant and get as many JEWISH souls to repent and accept the TRUTH before the New Covenant was to begin. As Jesus made clear ... He came for the Jewish people AT THAT TIME.

So, this New Covenant was made with JEWISH people AT THAT TIME.

But ... WHY not Gentiles?

BECAUSE THE OLD COVENANT WHICH WAS BROKEN BY THE JEWISH PEOPLE WAS NOT MADE WITH GENTILES. IT WAS MADE WITH ONLY THE JEWISH PEOPLE.

Now after the death, resurrection and rising to Heaven of Jesus, the New Covenant took effect ...

Hebrews 9:15-17
And for this cause he is the mediator of the new testament, that by means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions that were under the first testament, they which are called might receive the promise of eternal inheritance. For where a testament is, there must also of necessity be the death of the testator. For a testament is of force
AFTER MEN ARE DEAD: otherwise it is of no strength at all while the testator liveth. 

After Jesus was taken to Heaven and the Gentiles (Non-Jewish people) were now able to become Christians into the NEW COVENANT …

We are also told that in the New Covenant, Jewish and Gentile are deemed as being the same.

Romans 10:12
For there is
no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon Him.  

NOTE ... THIS WAS AFTER THE NEW COVENANT TAKES EFFECT

Many Jewish Christians were none to happy about this as the OLD COVENANT LAW said Gentiles were unclean and even eating with them could defile a man. But … Peter learned the hard way that what God calls clean is clean and spoke up.

Acts 15:7-10
And when there had been much disputing, Peter rose up, and said unto them, Men and brethren, ye know how that a good while ago God made choice among us, that the Gentiles by my mouth should hear the word of the Gospel, and believe. And God, which knoweth the hearts, bare them witness, giving them the Holy Ghost, even as He did unto us; And put no difference between us and them, purifying their hearts by Faith. Now therefore why tempt ye God, to put a yoke upon the neck of the disciples,
WHICH NEITHER OUR FATHERS OR WE WERE ABLE TO BEAR?

Some Jewish Christians wanted to impose the laws of the OLD Covenant on the Gentiles. However, the HOLY SPIRIT thought it was fitting to "burden" the Gentiles with only a few "LAWS".

Acts 15:19-20
Wherefore my sentence is, that we trouble not them, which from among the Gentiles are turned to God: But that we write unto them, that they abstain from pollutions of idols, and from fornication, and from things strangled, and from blood.

 So the elders of the early Christian Church sent a message out …

Acts 15:23-29
The Apostles and elders and brethren send greeting unto the brethren which are of the Gentiles in Antioch and Syria and Cilicia. Forasmuch as we have heard, that certain which went out from us have troubled you with words, subverting your souls, saying, Ye must be circumcised, and keep the law: to whom WE GAVE NO SUCH COMMANDMENT: It seemed good unto us, being assembled with one accord, to send chosen men unto you with our beloved Barnabas and Paul, Men that have hazarded their lives for the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. We have sent therefore Judas and Silas, who shall also tell you the same things by mouth.
FOR IT SEEMED GOOD TO THE HOLY GHOST, and to us, to lay upon you no greater burden than these necessary things; That ye abstain from meats offered to idols, and from blood, and from things strangled, and from fornication: from which if ye keep yourselves, ye shall do well.
Fare ye well.

So in the New Covenant … According to the Holy Ghost, the Gentiles are NOT subject to the same LAWS and CUSTOMS of the first Covenant, which was made with Jewish people ONLY and the Jewish people were NOT able to bear it according to Peter, so God made a New Covenant based on Better Promises and God sealed the New Covenant with the BLOOD Of Jesus making Him the MEDIATOR of the New Covenant which began AFTER His death.

How do we come to terms with the Law issue in the New Covenant which is mediated by Jesus who has such Love and MERCY for us?

Is not the heart of the LAW based on MERCY?

Matthew 23:23
Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and
have omitted the weightier matters of the LAW, judgment, MERCY, and faith: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone.
 

Are the Gentiles (and the Jewish souls for that matter) still subject to the same laws of the OLD Covenant which those before us were unable to bear so God creates a NEW Covenant?

Here is WISDOM …

Jeremiah 31:31-34
Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that 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 bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they brake, although I was an husband unto them, saith the LORD: But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the Lord,
I WILL PUT MY LAW INTO THEIR INWARD PARTS AND WRITE IT IN THEIR HEARTS; and will be their God, and they shall be my people. And they shall teach no more every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the LORD: for they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith the LORD: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will REMEMBER THEIR SIN NO MORE.
 

BY GRACE … GOD is placing the laws within us slowly as we walk this Christian walk. We need FAITH in Jesus and the rest is a miracle.

It is God’s INCREASE.

WE NEED ONLY PLANT SEEDS OF TRUTH AND WATER THEM BY READING GOD'S WORD. 

 

Check out these Scriptures and decide for yourself what you believe …

John 1:17
 For the law was given by Moses, but GRACE and TRUTH came by Jesus Christ.
 

 

Romans 6:14-15
For sin shall not have dominion over you: for YE ARE NOT UNDER THE LAW,
but under GRACE. What then? shall we sin, because we are not under the law, but under grace? God forbid.

  

Ephesians 2:8-9
For by GRACE are ye saved through Faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast. 

 

Galatians 2:21
I do not frustrate the GRACE of God. For if righteousness comes by the LAW ... Then Christ is dead in vain.

 

Galatians 5:4 
Christ is become of no effect unto you, whosoever of you are justified by the law;
YE ARE FALLEN FROM GRACE.

In short ... There is a NEW COVENANT and it is based on GRACE not law.

It is not our works that will get us into Heaven but His LOVE and GRACE that will cause the laws to be placed into our minds and hearts causing us to do His will.

BY NO MEANS IS GOD'S GRACE A
"GET OUT OF HELL FREE" CARD.
YOU ARE STILL RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR
ACTIONS AFTER YOU RECEIVE
GOD'S GRACE.

God's Grace reveals that if you TRULY believe in Jesus and the TRUTH that He was willing to die for you, and did, that you would know that He loves you so much that you will want to do what He wants you to do because you would know that He is looking out for your best interests. You will try hard not to do things that would make him ashamed or disappointed in you. You may fall, but always remember that only a worm is free from the worry of stumble and the real test is to see if you will get up, dust yourself off, carry on and never surrender.

JESUS IS THE MEDIATOR BIBLE OF THE NEW COVENANT WHICH IS BASED ON LOVE AND GRACE
