I will write my law upon their hearts.--Jeremiah 31:33

This large mural banner (14'x9') depicts the the two covenants: the Mosaic covenant and receiving of the Law on Mt. Sinai, and the New Covenant depicted by the receiving of the Holy Spirit on the day of Pentecost.

SUN: Symbol of God (the letters in the sun spell YHWH) But for you who fear my Name, the sun of righteousness will arise with healing in its' wings. --Malachi 4:2

CLOUD: Represents the presence of God. The LORD has said that he would dwell in a dark cloud. --I Kings 8:12

MT. SINAI: Holy ground, receiving of the Law, represents the old covenant.

TEMPLE: SOlomon's temple at Mt. Zion represents the dwelling place of God. In the New Covenant, this dwelling place is in our hearts. Don't you know that you yourselves are God's temple and that God's Spirit lives in you? -- I Cor. 3:16

SPIRAL: Represents the wind of the Holy Spirit. The wind blows wherever it pleases. You hear it sound but you cannot tell where it is going. So it is with everyone born of the Spirit. --John 3.8 The spiral also symbolizes the Holy Spirit writing the Law on our hearts. (Jeremiah 31:33)

FLAMES: Tongues of fire similar to the ones appearing over the disciples heads on the day of Pentecost (Acts 2). Symbolic of the life burning within our hearts when we are made alive in Christ.

LETTERING: White for purity and silver for truth. The words of the LORD are flawless, like silver refined in a furnace of clay, purified seven times. --Psalm 12:6
Two Covenants was commissioned by Sid Roth for the 1988 Conference of the Holy Spirit held during Shavuot in Jerusalem, Israel. It was a historic conference in that it was the first time Messianic congregations in Israel gathered together for a group celebration event. The banner was adapted from an original painting by Israeli artist, Martha Stern, wife of David Stern who is known for authoring the Jewish New Testament. The banner currently resides in Jerusalem and awaits permanent display in the international visitor's center there.
