Jeremiah 31:31-34, BHT: A “New” Union in Mind & Heart

The “new” union-covenant with God is found inward, not outward.

An addition to the BHT, where God gives a promise of a “new union” with the family of God, which is not an outward covenant-law written in stone, but an inward unveiling found deep in consciousness. (Compare Hebrews 8:8-12, 10:16-17.)

31 Listen carefully: the time is coming, and is here and now, says I AM, that I will reveal a new union with the family of God.

32 And it will not be like the old covenant that was made with your predecessors, when you were taken by the hand and delivered out of the land of Egypt, a covenant which you could not keep even though I loved you like a spouse, says I AM.

33 But rather, this will be the promise that I will make with the family of God: I AM says that in due time I will unveil my Will directly in your mind, inwardly in consciousness, and I will unveil it engraved directly in your heart, or soul. And I will be recognized as your Ultimate Reality, and you will know your Self as mine.

34 You will no longer need to teach your neighbors or say to your family members, “Here’s how you can know God,” because you will all know me, each one, from the most ordinary person to the greatest among you, says I AM. And in that unveiling I will pardon all your faults, and I will forget all your offenses.
