The New Covenant is a personal covenant that we make with God, in which we commit ourselves to obey all His will and in return He commits to equip us with everything we need to do this. The mystery of lawlessness is that most people explain away this part of the grace that Jesus delivered to us, and instead turn the grace of God into a license to sin.
We are living in the end times. Perilous times, because people have a form of godliness, but deny its power. They turn away from the truth and turn to fables. (2 Timothy 3:1-5) They rob the blood of Jesus of its power.
However, Sigurd Bratlie dares to expose the hypocrisy that hides behind expressions such as: “Under the blood,” “The finished work of Calvary is sufficient,” or “Hallelujah, praise the Lord!” He highlights what it is that we as Christians have to do to keep our side of the covenant that we made with God in Christ Jesus. God pledges to blot out our sins, to bless us with all spiritual blessings, and with the earthly things that we need. And in return we must pledge to give everything. To obey all His will. To keep the commandments of Jesus.
This book stirs up the reader to follow Jesus on the narrow way of life; for if we do not follow Him on this way, we can never walk in the steps of the One who did no sin. (1 Peter 2:21-24) May there be a revival that stirs our hearts to die with Him, that we might live with Him, so that all this deception – this false doctrine and lawlessness – might be exposed before Jesus returns.
