I spent this time copying these words from two men who have written books describing their own experiences with the Lord. Both men have spoke to two kinds of covenants. Both have stated that we as believers can live a life most aptly described as "the wilderness experience." This can be the life lived by many Christians today. Many live under the burden of the law. Many have not known the power of the New Covenant. Many are those who Paul has warned,"Gal. 3:3 Are you so foolish? Having begun in the Spirit, are you now being made perfect by the flesh?


Gal. 6:8 For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life.

It is clear from Paul's teaching that a Christian can begin in the Spirit, he can know the things of the the New Covenant, and yet this same Christian can go back to the law. Scripture clearly teaches that this is possible. I believe the writer of Hebrews also spoke of this principle when he wrote of Abraham's hope.

Heb. 11:13 These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off were assured of them, embraced them and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth. 14 For those who say such things declare plainly that they seek a homeland. 15 And truly if they had called to mind that country from which they had come out, they would have had opportunity to return.

Return to what is the question.

In Christ
