“His enthronement as King in the kingdom of God must precede the full restoration of the great
gift of the Holy Spirit of God, man’s true, man’s highest life. For that great result, that crowning
blessing, was to be at once the fruit of the all-prevailing intercession of the great High Priest in the true,
the heavenly sanctuary.”

The Doctrine of Christ


D. The Mediator of the New Covenant

1. The covenant of grace is God’s promise of the blessings of the gospel. Galatians 3:17. (The “promise”
in the latter part of this Verse is that which is designated as the “covenant” in the former part.)

2. The first covenant-promise, which included all the blessings of the gospel, was made in Eden. Genesis

3. The covenant-promise of these blessings was renewed to Abraham. Genesis 12:1-3; 22:16-19; Acts

4. This covenant-promise included the whole gospel of mercy and salvation. Galatians 3:8; Luke 1:72-

5. Jesus Christ, the Son of God, is the, mediator through whom the promises of God are fulfilled. 2
Corinthians l:19, 20; Romans 15:8.

6. Jesus Christ is therefore the mediator of the new covenant. Hebrews 12:24; 9:15.

7. The new covenant is God’s promise, to write his law in the heart of man. Hebrews 8:8, 10.

8. Christ mediates this covenant-promise by having the law in his own heart, and, then dwelling by faith
in the heart of the believer. Psalm 40:7, 8; Hebrews 10:5-7; Ephesians 3:17.

9. This is the impartation of a life which enables the believer to do God’s will. Hebrews 13:20, 21.

10. Those who preach the covenant of God’s grace should be ministers of “the new covenant of which
Christ is the mediator. 2 Corinthians 3:5, 6, ARV.
