What are the "better promises" upon which the new covenant was established?


"This shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, says the
Lord, I will put My law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; . . . I will forgive their iniquity,
and I will remember their sin no more!' Jer. 31: 33, 34. See Heb. 8: 8-12.
NOTE - These are simply the blessings of the gospel through Christ. They are promised upon
condition of repentance, confession, faith, and acceptance of Christ, the Mediator of the new covenant,
which means salvation and obedience. In the old covenant there was no provision for pardon and power to
obey. It is true there was pardon during the time of the old covenant, but not by virtue of it. Pardon then, as
now, was through the provisions of the new covenant, the terms of which are older than the old covenant.
