Hebrews 13:5 which is taken from the old testament Deuteronomy 31;6, because the old testament is the new testament concealed, and the new testament is the old testament Revealed in Christ. Let your conduct be without covetousness, be content with such things as you have…. (What we have is _C_H_R_I_S_T, who is our eternal weight of glory 2 Corinthians 4:17, and I AM your shield and exceedingly great reward, Genesis 15:1)….. For He Himself, has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you. Hebrews 13:5” For we have no need to be covetousness in the true applicable sense, which is spiritual or even in the natural, which the bible rarely speaks of, contrary to what mere mankind thinks. I would not have known sin except through the law, For i would not have known _COVETOUSNESS_ unless the law had said, “You shall not covet.” Romans 7:7/Exodus 20:17, Deuteronomy 5:21. Thus covetousness can only occur under the Law of Moses, so our text in Hebrews 13:5, then refers us back under this law of Moses, and its perfect contrast, freedom in Christ under the new covenant of his Blood. Under the curse of the Law, death reigned, that is separation from God, was established further by law, but by Christ’s blood that was shed at the Cross, this curse is removed from God’s children 100 fold, by what He alone did there. He further said, “It is finished,” john 19:30, so our verse is referring us not to outward things of the Law that would soon pass away in first century by Christ’s doing and dying, but rather the spiritual blessings he has blessed us with in Christ Jesus, Ephesians 1:3. These include but are not limited to the things he gives us freely (Hosea 14:4 I will love them freely NKJV, Matthew 10:8, James 1:5) Redemption, forgiveness or remission of sins, reconciliation, his everlasting life, and love, his mercies, his kindness in Christ, to name but a few of his benefits. So to refresh us again, our old nature only lusted/coveted for outward things, not named GOD, which kept on proving we were separated from him, by his law, and was a covenant of death. But under the covenant of his Grace, he is faithful to keep on reminding us how we had it under The law of death and condemnation, and how much the new covenant has given to us, even life and peace in Him.
