THE MYSTERY OF COVENANT RENEWAL

17981. EVERLASTING FATHER, WE THANK ON THIS 27TH DAY OF THE BATTLE FOR THE CROWN πŸ‘‘ 2020.

17982.

ONE OF MY BELOVED DAUGHTERS FROM UK πŸ‡¬πŸ‡§ ASKED ME A PERTINENT QUESTION. SHE SAID: “I too been wondering about how to write a covenant. Is not drinking alcohol already covenant? Do we not already have a covenant with being separate from folly?”

TO ANSWER HER QUESTION, I WILL FIRST SHOW YOU WHY GOD, PEOPLE, GROUPS, AND NATIONS OFTEN ENTER INTO COVENANTS.

THE PURPOSE OF COVENANTS

LIFE IS TOO FULL OF TWISTS AND TURNS. NOTHING IN LIFE IS PERMANENT. THERE ARE GOOD TIMES AND BAD TIMES.

THEREFORE, IN ORDER TO PERPETUATE THE GOODNESS OF A SEASON AGAINST BAD TIMES, OR AGAINST UNFAVORABLE CHANGES IN THE FUTURE, PEOPLE ENTER INTO COVENANTS TO SECURE πŸ” THEMSELVES AGAINST UNPREDICTABLE AND UNFAVORABLE CHANGES OF THE FUTURE.

COVENANTS ARE LIKE CONTRACTS OR AGREEMENTS BETWEEN TWO OR MORE PARTIES. THEY ARE LIKE PROMISES MADE TO EACH OTHER, OR ONE ANOTHER.

TO ENSURE THAT PROMISE IS KEPT, NO MATTER WHAT CHANGES IN FUTURE, PEOPLE ENTER INTO COVENANTS TO BIND THEM TO FULFILLMENTS OF THEIR DESIRES TO EACH OTHER, OR TOWARDS ONE ANOTHER.

THE REASON WHY PARTIES ENTER INTO COVENANTS IS BECAUSE IT GUARANTEES FULFILLMENT AND ANY BREACH OF COVENANTS CARRIES PUNISHING CONSEQUENCES AND PENALTIES. IT GIVES ASSURANCES AND CERTAINTIES THAT THE TERMS AND DESIRES OF THE COVENANT MUST BE OBEYED.

17983. COVENANTS CAN BE UNILATERAL OR BILATERAL OR MULTILATERAL. IF IT IS UNILATERAL, IT MEANS ONLY ONE PARTY BIND ITSELF TO THE FULFILLMENT OF THAT CONTRACT. IT DOES NOT DEPEND ON CHANGES IN ATTITUDES AND LIFE OF THE OTHER PARTY. THE FIRST PARTY TAKES FULL RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE FULFILLMENT OF A UNILATERAL COVENANT.

EXAMPLE OF A UNILATERAL COVENANT IS THE WILL OF GOD. THERE ARE CERTAIN THINGS GOD DESIRES AND THEREFORE ESTABLISH THEM WITHOUT DISCUSSIONS OR DEBATES WITH MAN. GOD EXPRESSES HIS DESIRES AND SEALS IT WITHOUT WAITING FOR ANY INPUT FROM MAN.

HE IS THE CREATOR. MAN IS HIS CREATURE. HE IS SOVEREIGN. HE IS INDEPENDENT. HE WAS NOT CREATED BY ANYTHING OR ANYBODY. HE IS ALMIGHTY. HE IS THE MASTER. HIS WORD IS YEA, AND AMEN!

ANOTHER EXAMPLE OF UNILATERAL COVENANT IS THE WILL OR TESTAMENT OF A PARENT ON HOW HE/SHE WANTS HIS/HER ESTATE/PROPERTIES TO BE SHARED AMONG HOS/HER CHILDREN OR INHERITORS.

BILATERAL COVENANTS AND MULTILATERAL COVENANTS ARE THE MOST POPULAR BECAUSE IT TAKES TWO, OR MORE PARTIES TO CONTRIBUTE TO THE COVENANT, AND AGREE ON THEIR RESPECTIVE RESPONSIBILITIES FOR FULFILLMENT OF THAT COVENANT IN THE FUTURE.

EXAMPLE OF BILATERAL COVENANT IS MARRIAGE BETWEEN A COUPLE πŸ‘«. OR AGREEMENTS BETWEEN GOD AND MAN AT DIFFERENT TIMES SINCE CREATION OF THE EARTH. OR AGREEMENTS BETWEEN TWO NATIONS THAT COMMIT EACH OF THEM TO CONTRIBUTE AND ESTABLISH RESPONSIBILITIES FOR FULFILLMENTS OF IT.

EXAMPLE OF MULTILATERAL COVENANTS IS AGREEMENTS BETWEEN MORE THAN TWO NATIONS. IT COULD BE PAYMENTS OF WAR REPARATIONS, TRIBUTES, TAXES ETC.

17984. THAT MY DAUGHTER WAS WONDERING IF WE DON’T ALREADY HAVE A COVENANT OF CONSECRATION UNTO GOD, WHICH SEPARATES US FROM FOOLISHNESS OF THIS WORLD. IF WE HAVE SUCH COVENANT, WHY DO WE NEED ANOTHER, OR NEW COVENANTS, SAY, FOR 2021?

THE ANSWER IS SIMPLE. LIFE IS FULL OF CHANGES, TWISTS, AND TURNS. EVERY NEW CHANGE, OR TWIST THAT WAS NOT ANTICIPATED BY AN OLD COVENANT, MUST HAVE A NEW COVENANT THAT COVERS IT MORE EFFECTIVELY. SOME COVENANTS ARE TIME-BOUND WHEN THEY EXPIRE, THERE WILL BE NEED FOR NEW COVENANTS.

EVERY NEW RELATIONSHIP NEEDS AND DESERVES A NEW “CONTRACT” OR COVENANT THAT SECURES πŸ” THAT RELATIONSHIP, AND ASSURES THE PARTIES TO THAT “CONTRACT”/COVENANT OF FULFILLMENT OF THE CONTRACTOR COVENANT!

GOD MADE A COVENANT WITH ADAM, BUT WHEN THE DESCENDANTS OF ADAM DISOBEYED GOD AND BREACHED HIS COVENANT, HE WIPED THEM OUT IN A FLOOD, AND MADE A NEW COVENANT WITH NOAH AND HIS DESCENDANTS.

SOME COVENANTS ARE RENEWED FOR A NEW GENERATION IF THEY ARE NOT FULLY CONSCIOUS OF THE CONTRACTS WITH OLD GENERATION. AN OLD COVENANT COULD BE RENEWED AS A REMINDER TO THAT NEW GENERATION THAT THE OLD COVENANT IS STILL IN FORCE.

SOME COVENANTS ARE COMPLETELY NEW BECAUSE OF NEW CIRCUMSTANCES NEEDED TO BE ADDRESSED BY SUCH COVENANTS.

SOME COVENANTS ARE NEW BECAUSE THE OLD COVENANTS WERE BROKEN.

THIS IS THE REASON WHY AT DIFFERENT TIMES, AND IN DIFFERENT GENERATIONS, GOD MAKES NEW COVENANTS WITH EACH GENERATION OR PEOPLE.

HE MADE A NEW COVENANT WITH ABRAHAM. HE RENEWED THAT COVENANT WITH ISAAC AND JACOB.

JACOB HIMSELF MADE A DIFFERENT AND NEW COVENANT WITH GOD, APART FROM THE ONES GOD MADE BY GOD HIS ANCESTORS, ABRAHAM AND ISAAC.

FOR ME, WHENEVER THE LORD GIVES ME A PROFOUNDLY NEW REVELATION, I CONVERT IT INTO A COVENANT TO SECURE πŸ” THE FULFILLMENT AND MANIFESTATION OF THAT REVELATION IN MY LIFE BY GOD.

MANY TIMES IN THE LIVES OF ABRAHAM, ISAAC, AND JACOB, WHENEVER GOD APPEARED UNTO THEM WITH FRESH ASSURANCES OF HIS PROMISES, THE PATRIARCHS BUILD AN ALTAR AT THAT PLACE OF ENCOUNTER. THAT ALTAR IS THE SYMBOL OF THE COVENANT.

EVERY COVENANT CARRIES A SIGN OR SYMBOL.

EVERY COVENANT HAS BINDING TERMS OR CONDITIONS

EVERY COVENANT IS RATIFIED BY A SACRIFICE. WITHOUT THAT SACRIFICE, THE COVENANT IS INCOMPLETE.

GOD LOVES COVENANTS, GOD LOVES SACRIFICES. THAT’S WHY HE IS A COVENANT-KEEPING GOD.
