Another key element of the New Covenant is the preservation of Israel (vv. 35-37). God has the power to do away with His people but that isn’t His plan.
The third aspect of God’s new relationship will be the establishment of a new city for His people. Jerusalem, the city that symbolizes God’s relationship with His people, was destroyed by Babylon (vv. 38-40). But even before that event took place God promised that the city will be rebuilt. These points mark the boundries of restored Jerusalem in the days of Nehemiah.
God never goes back on His promises. When He promised to save me it was immediately when I asked Him to do it and it is for all eternity.
