Covenant of the Pieces

Home » Covenant of the Pieces


Why did Yeshua have to die for us? As believers in the Hebrew Messiah, His sacrifice is the foundation of our faith. The answer lies with our Father Abraham. The 15th chapter of Genesis describes a covenant that was made between YHVH and Abram. This teaching will show you that Messiah Yeshua was there when this covenant was made and why Yeshua had to stand in place of Israel for the penalty of death. The Covenant of YHVH with Israel is eternal and He will return to fulfill the promise made to our forefathers. Shalom

My work as a servant of the Most High God has allowed me to be a voice to spread the good news of the New Testament, unveiling its truth through context and the obedience to the Almighty through his Torah.

    What is the details in Exodus 24 with Moses, Aaron, Nadab and Abihu? Wondering if it is lines with some of
    the examples you pointed out here?

    In part-3. You state that we can never keep the commandments. LUKE 01:06 says that Yochanan’s parents walked in ALL the commandments. This appears to show that we (humans) can be perfect in an imperfect world.

    Are you able to expand on your statement please. ?

    1. Nobody can literally ‘keep’ all the commandments in the US legal system sense of the term because different commandments apply to different persons. There are commandments for women than men cannot keep (Niddah), commandments for priests that non-priests cannot keep, commandments for kings, etc, etc. Thus no one person can keep all the commandments since nobody can be both male, female, priest, levite, king etc all at once.

      There certainly can be humans that are ‘perfect’ in the Biblical sense, but we need to remember that keeping God’s commandments is more than just a checklist of 613 do’s and do not’s; it is learning to walk in His commandments through the weightier matters of the Torah.

  3. Dear Rico,
    I just opened your email. I am one of your Yeshiva students. Your teachings are my main source of high value information and truth. The simple answer is YES your ministry is by far the pasture where I get fed with the most nutritious diet. You are providing me/us with an amazing volume of accurate well researched information. So much so, that I have a difficult time keeping up with it let alone reading the supplementary sources. You and your team have provided enough information to keep me busy all year just studying scriptures and basic literary resources proving that what you have shared is true.

    Please, please don’t kill yourself doing too much. YAH wants you to run the full race. We need you to run the full race. You are an inspiration to me and so many other believers. Hey Rico, I have to run the race too. You can’t do it for me. I have to take responsibility as well for this journey.

    I love that you care oh so much. Your heart is like a lion and a lamb all at the same time.

    Thank you for spending your whole weekend with us at Campfire in northern Ontario over First Fruits. It was a thrill for me to receive the higher matters of Torah from you first hand.

    Shalom and my prayers are for you and your dear family to stay strong and healthy.

  4. Hi Rico, I am new to Wisdom In Torah as YHWH is teaching me my Hebrew Roots. YHWH has recently taken me out of the Church and I just want to say thank you for your fantastic teaching clear insights and profound knowledge. The Torah now makes so much sense and everything fits in around it. I am loving this! Our King is teaching His children in these last days. Thank you so much. Shalom Tracie

  5. Hi Rico,
    Good teaching. I do have a couple of questions for you. I had to watch these a couple of times to fully grasp it but there are a couple of things that I still don’t get. As I understood it the Covenant of the pieces was an unconditional covenant. Is this right? If it’s unconditional then why did The Lamp (Jesus) have to die? I didn’t think that Abraham or his descendants could do anything to break it. This brings me to my next question, I thought I understood it that each covenant was built on the other, so if and when Israel (and the foreigners among them) broke the Mosiac Covenant then they automatically fell back onto the Abrahamic Covenant. That is why when Israel calls God to remember His covenant with Abraham He saves them?
    Also this would make sense in Acts 15 when the Jews thought that you had to inter into the Abrahamic Covenant first, then the Mosaic, then you would be able to inter into the New. We know that this is not the case now and it would seem that you can inter into the New covenant with God and take advantage each covenant and inter into them at any time afterward entering into the New. I’m not trying to cause division, just trying to understand better.
