God is always accomplishing more than one objective at a time, and if you allow him to, he will reveal his objectives to you in your own life, and corporately.
The first objective of the new covenant is to preserve the good counsel that comes from coming into partnership with God’s government.
The second objective of the new covenant is to design a loophole whereby a sinner who has violated the law can repent and not be imprisoned by the consequences of not keeping that law, should God deem to forgive him entirely.
The new covenant is a business contract– a marriage that was designed in the wilderness. It was a contract that preceded the temple, and would survive the destruction of the temple; whereby, should the adversary believe that the contract was only meant to exist so long as the temple stood, he would be corrected. The contract withstands all destruction. It was built before there was a church, even though it was the church.
