In as much as the ceremonies & symbols of the OT law have now ceased, modern day Christians still share in the journey of living by faith in a foreign land with foreign beliefs. Scripture, written for our encouragement, reminds the reader that God cannot & will not fail. Modern culture & belief can only create it’s version of history until God says enough, it is time. 2 Peter 3:15.
Taking hold of the tender mercies of God displayed in Christ Jesus is the one & only way in which we may be truly healed of our human earthly condition (sin) that is opposed to God in mind, body & soul. Yes, it would be an arrogant thing to say if it were not true & more arrogant still to reject the truth & Gods means of salvation. John 14:6
