Pastor Paul Adefarasin of Household on the Rock Cathedral in Lagos, has advised people to try out the new covenant because the law of the Old Testament in the Bible doesn’t work.

In a new post he shared on social media, Paul Adefarasin revealed that trying to live by the Old Testament laws can’t make one’s life better.

Sometimes you are breathless, battered, broke and beaten. You’re going through hell and high water and you’ve tried to do everything righteously as was taught from the Old Testament yet, your life doesn’t seem to be turning any better because Friends, the law don’t work. It’s an expired covenant. It no longer works for anybody. You might be needy and helpless, unable to help yourself and robbed of hope but then Jesus Christ shows up.

Have you tried the New Covenant? Have you tried the New Agreement? Have you tried the New Plan? It has better blood. It has better mediation. It has a better Mediator. It’s built on better promises and it has a better Manager, a better Administrator. Have you tried Jesus Christ? He works in every situation, He heals your broken body. He heals your broken man. He heals your broken finances. He heals your broken relationships. He heals your broken promises.

I declare that this day and the rest of the week, as you go out in faith, God will show up in your situation – be made whole in Jesus name.

  1. I want thank you for finally reaffirming this aged long truth, which is the better covenant we have in Christ. “The former regulation is set aside because it was weak and useless (for the law made nothing perfect), and a better hope is introduced, by which we draw near to God.” Hebrews‬ ‭7:18-19‬ ‭NIV‬‬

    “Now if the ministry that brought death, which was engraved in letters on stone, came with glory, so that the Israelites could not look steadily at the face of Moses because of its glory, transitory though it was, will not the ministry of the Spirit be even more glorious? If the ministry that brought condemnation was glorious, how much more glorious is the ministry that brings righteousness! For what was glorious has no glory now in comparison with the surpassing glory. And if what was transitory came with glory, how much greater is the glory of that which lasts! Therefore, since we have such a hope, we are very bold. We are not like Moses, who would put a veil over his face to prevent the Israelites from seeing the end of what was passing away. But their minds were made dull, for to this day the same veil remains when the old covenant is read. It has not been removed, because only in Christ is it taken away. Even to this day when Moses is read, a veil covers their hearts. But whenever anyone turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away. Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.”
    ‭‭2 Corinthians‬ ‭3:7-17‬ ‭NIV‬‬

    From the two above scriptural references, why are you preaching the payment of tithe as a means of accessing this new covenant in Christ? Did Christ or the early Apostles received or paid tithe?

    “You foolish Galatians! Who has bewitched you? Before your very eyes Jesus Christ was clearly portrayed as crucified. I would like to learn just one thing from you: Did you receive the Spirit by the works of the law, or by believing what you heard? Are you so foolish? After beginning by means of the Spirit, are you now trying to finish by means of the flesh? Have you experienced so much in vain—if it really was in vain? So again I ask, does God give you his Spirit and work miracles among you by the works of the law, or by your believing what you heard?”
    ‭‭Galatians‬ ‭3:1-5‬ ‭NIV‬‬
    I hope to receive an answer from you.
    Thank you.
