    The First Dominion Restored

    One lesson that must be pointed out in closing is that the new covenant brings in nothing new, except the new earth, and that is that which was from the beginning. The men with whom it is made will have already been made new in Christ. The first dominion will be restored. Let no one therefore think to excuse himself from keeping the commandments of God, by saying that he is under the new covenant. No; if he is in Christ, then is he in (not under) the covenant with Abraham, and as a child of Abraham, an heir with Christ, he has hope in the new covenant of which Christ is surety. Whoever does not acknowledge himself to be of the generation of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, in fellowship with Moses, David, and the prophets, has no ground for hope in the new covenant. And whoever rejoices in the promises of the new covenant, the blessings of which the Holy Spirit even now makes real, must remember that it is by virtue of the new covenant that the law of God is put into our hearts. The old covenant brought nobody to the obedience of that law, but the new covenant makes it universal, so that the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea.EVCO 530.1

    Then “the Lord shall be King over all the earth; in that day shall there be one Lord, and His name one.” 1Zechariah 14:9.EVCO 531.1

    Then shall men “see Jerusalem a quiet habitation, a tabernacle that shall not be taken down; not one of the stakes thereof shall ever be removed, neither shall any of the cords thereof be broken.” 2Isaiah 33:20.EVCO 531.2

    The covenant of peace will remove evil beasts out of the land, for the lion shall eat straw like the ox, and the wolf will be a playmate for the young lamb, so that we “shall dwell safely in the wilderness, and sleep in the woods;” 3Ezekiel 34:25. for “then judgment shall dwell in the wilderness, and righteousness remain in the fruitful field. And the work of righteousness shall be peace; and the effect of righteousness, quietness and assurance for ever.” 4Isaiah 32:16, 17EVCO 531.3

    Best of all we shall “ever be with the Lord,” and we “shall see His face.” Therefore now and evermore,EVCO 531.4

    “Thanks be unto God for His unspeakable gift!”EVCO 531.5

    “For of Him, and through Him, and to Him, are all things; to whom be glory for ever. Amen.”EVCO 531.6
