New Covenant Ways – BT13:  The Old Testament was meant for Jews NOT Gentiles

If you do your homework, you will find that not one Old Testament passage cited in the NT was directed to Gentile-Christians, because they had no regard, and still don’t, for any of the Jewish writings. Even the very Jewish apostle Peter, who had so many problems letting go of his Jewish legalism, – Paul publicly criticized Peter for such hypocrisy (a) – only recognized the prophetic ‘portions of’ the OT: “We have the prophetic logos message [now] more fully confirmed, to which you (b) will do well to pay attention . . . knowing this first of all, that no prophecy of/belonging-to scripture comes from someone’s own interpretation. For no prophecy was ever produced by the will of man, but men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit” (c). <Notes> a) Galatians 2:11-14, b) his Jewish readers since he was the apostle to the Jews, c) 2 Peter 1:19-2.


Peter also focuses on the “directly-spoken/heard prophetic rhema words of the holy prophets” (a) and “the prophets who prophesied about the unconditional-loving-favor-of-grace that was to be ours, this concerning our salvation” (b), and tells Christians to use their gift and “whoever speaks [in churches] as one who speaks logion oracles (c) of God” (d). <Notes> a) 2 Peter 3:2-4, b) 1 Peter 1:10, c) logion:  divine, prophetic declarations or utterances: Acts 7:38; Romans 3:22; Hebrews 5:12, d) 1 Peter 4:11.

As Christian musicians, shouldn’t we also only be speaking anointed, prophetic, spontaneous utterances from God?  Why would we direct any non-Jewish person to writings written only for the Jews?  Do we want to confuse them?  Do we want them to fall into the Law of sin and death?  Instead we should be asking God to confirm His gospel logos message and then have the trusting-relying-faith to expect signs, wonders, healings, miracles, and prophetic messages just as Mark 16:11-20 charged us to do.





Lord, forgive us for using “elementary ‘abc’ fundamentals” intended only for converting Jews, and so inadvertently enslaving so many people to “the Law of sin and death.”  We repent and instead of learning about You from palaios “old, antiquated, worn-out, useless” gramma writings, we will NOW take obedient-steps of trusting-relying-faith to expect You to teach us directly so that we eido mentally ‘see’ to perceive/know You in order that “we have absolutely in fact no need for any other teacher.”  Your Holy Spirit is NOW our “One Teacher” so that we dare “not call any man teacher.”
