RELATIONSHIP & RELATIVITY THE COVENANTS
Dan 9:7 O Lord, righteousness belongeth unto thee, but unto us confusion of faces, as at this day; to the men of Judah, and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and unto all Israel, that are near, and that are far off, through all the countries whither thou hast driven them, because of their trespass that they have trespassed against thee.
GOD created >> Covenants << as an Unchangeable, Divinely Imposed Legal Agreement between HIMSELF and Mankind that stipulated the Conditions of the Relationship between HIMSELF and HIS People.
Life – the quality that distinguishes an individual from inorganic matter or a dead organism manifested in functions such as Metabolism, Growth, Reproduction, and Response to Stimuli or Adaptation to the Environment Originating from within the Organism.

Destiny – your future or the pre-ordained path of your life.
Deu_29:21 And the LORD shall separate him unto evil out of all the tribes of Israel, according to all the curses of the covenant that are written in this book of the law:
2Ch_34:24 Thus saith the LORD, Behold, I will bring evil upon this place, and upon the inhabitants thereof, even all the curses that are written in the book which they have read before the king of Judah:
The first Scripture above – Daniel 9:7 (Dan 9:7) was written by the >> Prophet Daniel during the Babylonian Captivity << when the people were Exiled in Babylon after ignoring the Admonishments (Reminders/Warnings) sent to Israel by GOD through the Prophet Jeremiah. Follow the link above to read of Israel, Daniel the Prophet and the Babylonian Captivity. Surprisingly, the individuals who went to Babylon were not the individuals being violently Punished but they were captives, not prisoners or slaves but they were not able to return to their homes in Israel or Jerusalem. They were the Preserved Remnant of Israel that GOD had Consecrated to HIMSELF for HIS use and for HIS Name.
GOD always keeps HIS Promises. Although Israel had been Disobedient and Wicked GOD did not destroy her. HE always Retains a Remnant to Re-populate the Planet to Honor the Promise of Fathering many Nations to Abraham, the Promise to King David to put his Heir on the Perpetual Throne and most importantly the Promises to all Believers – the Promise of the Messiah, JESUS CHRIST who would Save “His People” from the Eternal Death/Separation from GOD.
During the Mosaic Dispensation, Moses as a Prophet of Israel established the Worship and Ceremonial Rites for Israel, however GOD made provisions for other people in addition to the Jews who wanted to join themselves to HIM and Worship HIM through HIS Covenant. Israel/the Jews, were not the only people Invited or Chosen to be a part of a Holy People. Then, as now, the invitation is open to all People, Tribes, Tongues, etc. Israel was chosen to Observe and to Teach >> GOD’S Divine Cosmic Law << and the >> Mosaic Law << to the World. Even the “Outcasts”, the individuals who were non-Jewish or Jews who were Ostracized by the Jews, could Worship GOD in HIS Temple in Delegated places in the Temple.
Isa 56:1 Thus saith the LORD, Keep ye judgment, and do justice: for my salvation is near to come, and my righteousness to be revealed.
Isa 56:2 Blessed is the man that doeth this, and the son of man that layeth hold on it; that keepeth the sabbath from polluting it, and keepeth his hand from doing any evil.
Isa 56:3 Neither let the son of the stranger, that hath joined himself to the LORD, speak, saying, The LORD hath utterly separated me from his people: neither let the eunuch say, Behold, I am a dry tree.
Isa 56:4 For thus saith the LORD unto the eunuchs that keep my sabbaths, and choose the things that please me, and take hold of my covenant;
Isa 56:5 Even unto them will I give in mine house and within my walls a place and a name better than of sons and of daughters:
I will give them an everlasting name, that shall not be cut off.
Isa 56:6 Also the sons of the stranger, that join themselves to the LORD, to serve him, and to love the name of the LORD, to be his servants, every one that keepeth the sabbath from polluting it, and taketh hold of my covenant;
Isa 56:7 Even them will I bring to my holy mountain, and make them joyful in my house of prayer: their burnt offerings and their sacrifices shall be accepted upon mine altar; for mine house shall be called an house of prayer for all people.
Isa 56:8 The Lord GOD which gathereth the outcasts of Israel saith, Yet will I gather others to him, beside those that are gathered unto him.
The Old Covenant of the Law of Moses known as the >> Old Testament << has been has been replaced with the the New Covenant also known as the >> New Testament << the Spiritual Dispensation, differing from the Old Covenant as “Carnal. During the Ministry of Jesus the Christ He Preached/Taught that He had other sheep that He had to bring, to gather to Himself, which were not of the Jewish sheepfold but he was going to gather them into one fold. By the time of the Ministry of Jesus Christ the >> Temple had become Corrupted << as well as some of the >> Prophets of Israel, << the >> Priests << and the Jewish Leaders.
Mar_11:17 And he taught, saying unto them, Is it not written, My house shall be called of all nations the house of prayer? but ye have made it a den of thieves.
