When you partook of the fallen Adamic nature at your physical birth, you gained the carnal mind and became a sinner. You gained a mind that is enmity to God. This was a breach of contract under the Old Covenant and penalties began to accrue. Jesus died to forgive these penalties. His death was accepted as payment for the reparations due under the old contract. But when a business contract is breached and the requisite reparations are forgiven, the contract is rendered void. No further obligation to perform under the contract, by either party, is then expected or anticipated.
So also, when you accept forgiveness through the death of Jesus Christ, the Levitical Covenant for you is canceled. You are then left without a contract with God. Never again can you hope to attain perfection by performance of the deeds of the Levitical Law, because for you, the contract is no longer in effect. You cannot accept the blood of Jesus Christ and then think to establish your righteousness by keeping the feasts, eating matzos, growing a beard, or any other physical ritual. In that he saith, A new covenant, he hath made the first old. Now that which decayeth and waxeth old is ready to vanish away.
In those early days, when you first become a Christian, you have no contract with God. That is to say, for you the Old Covenant is nullified and the New Covenant though available, is not yet ratified. As the life of Christ begins to mature within you, you must enter into this new contract with your Heavenly Father. You must ratify the New Covenant within your own spirit. This is accomplished only individually, by the death of each testator. For where a testament [contract] is, there must also of necessity be the death of the testator.
At his cross, Jesus Christ set aside every desire for self-preservation and surrendered to his Father’s will even to his own murder. By his sacrificial blood he canceled the Old Covenant. By his willing surrender he established the New. The New Covenant, which must be made with your spirit, is “willing surrender unto self-sacrifice.” Then said he, Lo, I come to do thy will, O God. He taketh away the first, that he may establish the second. After his resurrection, the spirit of Jesus encapsulated all this victory; his successful overcoming was encoded into his spiritual DNA. A seed from his spirit could then reproduce the New Covenant in you. Who was delivered for our offences, and was raised again for our justification.
When your spirit combines with a spirit seed from the risen Christ, a new life is formed your spirit becomes a newly conceived Son of God. During the gestation of this new Son, you will be called upon to ratify the same New Covenant within yourself, just as Jesus Christ demonstrated. 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.
Ratification of the New Covenant must be accomplished individually in each person, and it takes place in two steps. First you must cast out the Old Covenant, Hagar and Ishmael. The Levitical Law and your physical glory cannot lift you one-half inch out of Adamic death. Christ is become of no effect unto you, whosoever of you are justified by the law. You must abandon every natural glory and physical ritual of mortal man. Glorifying your prestige, physical abilities, genealogy, religious ceremonies, or anything on planet earth, is vain and unprofitable. It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing. Your strengths and the best of all you think you possess must be sent away. All these things are superseded when you become a partaker of the life of Jesus Christ. Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
The second step is the sacrifice of Isaac. Your Adamic failings are not an acceptable sacrifice for the purity of God’s plan. Only the perfection of Isaac is an acceptable sacrifice. Only his testing unto death can rend the veil and cause you to sit upon the golden throne of God. If ye offer the blind for sacrifice, is it not evil? and if ye offer the lame and sick, is it not evil? offer it now unto thy governor; will he be pleased with thee, or accept thy person? saith the LORD of hosts. God wants your hidden wealth. He wants to test your secret spiritual friendship with him, your faith and trust in his superior abilities. Under the New Covenant your spirit is first lovingly nurtured by a doting Father your knowledge of God, your understanding and faith in him blossoms. Then as this spirit Son reaches maturity, he is taken to a mountain and sacrificed. And Abraham built an altar there, and laid the wood in order, and bound Isaac his son, and laid him on the altar upon the wood.
In overwhelming subjection to Satanic evil, God will cut the throat of all you now believe, or think you know. God wants a profound spiritual cry from the depths of your heart. He will take from you the things that you are unable to give, and from these ashes will arise a new, living wisdom. This new creature is a matured, tested, and resurrected Son of God. And only he is fit to inherit the wealth of his Father. By faith Abraham, when he was tried, offered up Isaac: and he that had received the promises offered up his only begotten son, of whom it was said, That in Isaac shall thy seed be called: accounting that God was able to raise him up, even from the dead. Like Jesus at Gethsemane, God will bring each of his spirit Sons to a cross of cunning construction. There they will surrender to the pervasive wisdom of God, in the face of Satanic attack and betrayal.
During this darkness all that surrounds you will collapse in apparent failure. The best that you have produced, and all that you trusted in, even the very gifts that God has given you, will crumple into a ruined heap. In this enduring nightmare, you will surrender to the bewildering sagacity of God. This is the New Covenant. It is the birth of agape-love. It is a new contract, established by a love for your Father that supersedes every other desire in the universe. Ye are come unto … Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel. As your life becomes a burnt offering, the New Covenant is ratified in you. Gather my saints together unto me; those that have made a covenant with me by sacrifice. The death of self-will is the only visible evidence that the New Covenant is operating in your spirit. I delight to do thy will, O my God: yea, thy law is within my heart.
The symbol of the New Covenant is the cup of Christ, which was passed to all the disciples at the last supper. This cup represents the difficult gestation of a spirit being. This cup is the new testament in my blood, which is shed for you. All those who will share in begotten glory will drink this same cup, and love not their lives unto the death. Are ye able to drink of the cup that I shall drink of, and to be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with? They say unto him, We are able. After you have been through the sacrifice of Isaac, there is no law that can contain you. I mean this: The law which was given four hundred and thirty years later could not annul the contract which had already been ratified by God, so as to cancel the promise. Galatians 3:17 (Williams). When you are birthed into the spirit realm, you shall become all that God is, and inherit all that he has. Like Jesus Christ, you will become the progenitor of laws for the created realm. For in that he put all in subjection under him, he left nothing that is not put under him.
The Begotten Sons of God, operating in agape-love, are the absolute fulfillment of both the Old and New Covenants. They sing the song of Moses the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb. Only these spirit beings can ever accomplish this feat. And no man could learn that song but the hundred and forty and four thousand, which were redeemed from the earth.

Everything present in your life today represents steps that you have already completed. Think not to say within yourselves, We have Abraham to our father: for I say unto you, that God is able of these stones to raise up children unto Abraham. The goal still remains before you, to bring forth a spirit Son. It is these remaining steps that are now keeping you out of immortality. Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before.
Human genealogies and questions of Levitical legalism will waste your precious time, as a sidetrack to a dead end. Avoid foolish questions, and genealogies, and contentions, and strivings about the law; for they are unprofitable and vain. No physical being can fulfill the New Covenant. No part of your Adamic pedigree will inherit anything in the spirit realm. While you remain human, a natural man with a feminine spirit, you will inherit nothing from God.
There is no physical activity on earth that can make you into a Son of God, and ultimately, there is no human failing that can prevent it. From the ashes of your carnality a Son shall one day arise in your midst. The birth of this new being is your only path to the promised inheritance of God. They are not all the children of Abraham because they are by blood his descendants. No, the promise was, “Your descendants will be called and counted through the line of Isaac,” though Abraham had an older son. Romans 9:7 (Amplified).
This celestial spiritual destiny is the promise of the New Covenant, and it was made possible by the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
