A Covenant God

transaction

God is a Covenant God, and His Covenants were always sealed in the blood of an animal sacrifice.

God’s own Son became the sacrifice, so that God could make a New Covenant with us. One that we can either reject or accept.

Covenant according today’s dictionary means a formal agreement or contract.

God always gives us choices to enter into a covenant or not.

The Old Covenant was fulfilled in the new covenant (basically) what God was planning in the Old Covenant came to pass in the New Covenant (Testament)

Deuteronomy explains the blessings and curses (the consequences of our decisions). They are in Deut. 28 v 1 14

Often people will ask why God would allow this and that, and look unfavorably upon him for being ‘unfair’. But as the Loving Father and Parent He is, is it not only fair, that he discipline us for our own sake, then allow us to continue on in our own foolish ways? I’m sure we’ve all experienced the consequences of our actions and decisions at sometime. And though some of those lessons are tough and can be hard to face, God will give you nothing that you can’t handle.

And as a Loving Father and Parent. I believe He knows what’s best for us, His children.

The main blessing of the New Covenant is the salvation of the soul. It is the greatest ‘Spiritual blessing” {Ephesians 1 verses 1 to 3} that Christ came to bring, Jesus Christ is the Savior of the world. {John 4 verse 42; Acts 13 verse 23}

The word ‘Salvation’ includes in its meaning ;safety, security, preservation . deliverance and wholeness’.

We too. can enter into God’s New Covenant, just as any ‘whosoever’ can. read John 3 verse 16;

God Bless.

OFJ.
