Covenant (14) Purpose 4: Authority Shift

The mosaic covenant changed the authority situation in the promised land. Under the Adamic covenant, men had authority over the land. If they rebelled, they could shut God out of the land, and they mostly did. Under, the Mosaic covenant, men could still sin, but this covenant gave God the right to exile them from the land. They could no longer shut God out of this bit of land. This was a massive step forward in god’s plan to restore his authority on earth. I explain this more fully in my book Kingdom Authority.
