Consolidated and shared by the brethren for those called at this point in time:

Old and New Testament - 11

Because of FAITH, these people who had not witnessed the death of Christ already “saw” the real offering by divine revelation.

This is the true and deep meaning of FAITH:

Heb. 11:1 “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”

Heb. 11:6 “But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he
is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.”

1 Cor. 2:5 “That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.”

All the characters, Abel, Enoch, Noah, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Sarah, Joseph, Moses, Rahab, Gideon, Barak, Samson, Jephtha, David ,
Samuel, and the prophets, were saved by FAITH. Christ did not destroy the law nor abolished obedience thereto. Jesus Christ said:

Matt. 5:17 “ Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.”

The law remains the frameworks upon which the relationship between God and His chosen is established. With the law, God shows
His chosen how He guides and provides strength to follow it according to His will. This is the message of the New Testament, for by
the shedding of blood gave way to the indwelling of the Holy Spirit.

Heb. 13:20 “Now the God of peace, that brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great shepherd of the sheep, through
the blood of the everlasting covenant, 21Make you perfect in every good work to do his will, working in you that which is wellpleasing
in his sight, through Jesus Christ; to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.”

Jesus said, “ Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.” The law remains
but not according to the Natural Man’s interpretation which is limited to the “letter.” The “letter” of the word is full of contradictions
for they are expressed in parables.

1 Cor. 2:14 “But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can
he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.”

Therefore coverage of the NEW TESTAMENT is not determined by the period or epoch , but by the way the “chosen of God”
humble themselves before Him . How did Abel know the right offering of a Lamb if God had not reveal it to him -- because
of his humility . The “Lamb” symbolizes Jesus Christ. The offering and shedding of blood of bulls and other animals prefigured
the death of our Lord. The shadow is as good as the reality in the shedding of blood of JESUS CHRIST on the cross.
