one last time- what God gave to Moses at Sinai was a COVENANT. covenant are not divided into parts. many times it is said by God " the Covenant I made....." covenant . singular.
Are covenants laws? Or are they agreements/promises that may or may not include laws?
For example, the covenant with Abraham, and the covenant with David.
My point here is to show a distinction between the covenant made at Mt. Sinai and the laws given at the mount.
The covenant was "if
israel did all that Yah said to do they would be a treasured kingdom of priests".
The covenant was agreed to in Exodus 19 before any law was given.
Then after it was agreed to, the commandments - the initial rules they were to follow - were spoken and the covenant was ratified by blood.
After that, Moses went up to get the tablets of testimony but the people broke the covenant while he was gone...how? By not following the initial rules they were given (no idolatry, adultery, etc).
Again, notice that the covenant was established before
any rule/law was given. So at any point, Yah can give them any new rules to follow because the rules themselves aren't the covenant.
It's also true that Yah alone can take away
any rules/laws. Because the covenant is "obey whatever Yah commands of you; do whatever He says".
Moses comes back down and Yah is ready to destroy everyone for violating the blood covenant, but Moses interceded for the people...then we read Moses getting from Yah the new rules for the ministration of blood/death
that the people MUST now obey because of their violation of the covenant so that Yah will not rightfully kill them.
This "law was added because of (their) transgression
" (Galatians 3). Next, the levites are given the leadership role in this ministration since they sided with Yah.
If the covenant is the law, then once ratified by blood Yah legally couldn't have added laws afterwards because a covenant is unchangeable.
No, the covenant is to "do whatever Yah says to do
", and He can add to or take away from what He wants done at any given time as necessary. However, the people
could not add or subtract from those rules because they are in the submissive role of the relationship.
After Christ performed the work of correcting Israel's violation, the law for ministration of blood/death, as well as the Levitical priesthood leading in that ministration, were obsolete (Hebrews). So these rules were removed by The King and the law was changed in that aspect.
