The New Way of the Spirit-Pt 6
Numbers 11:26-29 Eldad and Medad, had remained in the camp. They were listed among the elders, but did not go out to the Tent of Meeting. Yet the Spirit also rested upon them, and they prophesied in the camp. A young man ran and told Moses, “Eldad and Medad are prophesying in the camp!” Joshua son of Nun, who had been Moses’ aide since youth, spoke up and said, “Moses, my lord, stop them!” Moses replied, “Are you jealous for my sake? I wish that all the LORD’s people were prophets and that the LORD would put His Spirit on all of them!”
Jeremiah 31:31 & 33 Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will make a New Covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah: …this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the LORD, I will put My law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be My people.

The Apostles Warned Us
1 John 4:1 Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.
2 Peter 2:1 …there were false prophets among the people, (ancient Israel) even as there shall be false teachers among you, (the Christian Church) who secretly shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.

The New Covenant Is Implemented AT THE CROSS
Colossians 2:11-15 In Him you were circumcised, putting off the sinful nature, not with a circumcision done by the hands of men; but with the circumcision done by Christ, having been buried with Him in baptism and raised with Him through your faith in the power of God, who raised Him from the dead.
When you were dead in your sins and in the uncircumcision of your sinful nature, God made you alive with Christ. He forgave us all our sins, having canceled the written code, with its regulations, that was against us and that stood opposed to us; He took it away, nailing it to the cross. And having disarmed the powers and authorities, He made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the cross.
