Blessed NOW Under the New Covenant
The Lord bless you and keep you;
The Lord make His face shine upon you,
And be gracious to you;
The Lord lift up His countenance upon you,
And give you peace.
I think this blessing was completely fulfilled in the New Covenant!
The Lord bless you - He has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in Christ Jesus. (Eph. 1:3)
And keep you - We have now returned to the Shepherd and Guardian (Keeper) of our souls. (1 Pet. 2:25)
The Lord make His face shine upon you - God has shone in our hearts and given us the knowledge of His glory in the face of Jesus Christ. (2 Co. 4:6)
And be gracious to you - He has brought us by faith into this grace in which we stand. (Rom. 5:2)
The Lord lift His countenance upon you - With unveiled faces we are beholding the glory of the Lord. (2 Co. 3:18)
And give you peace - We now have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. (Rom. 5:1)
How wonderful is the New Covenant of grace..
