While we are preparing to put on a series of videos that will briefly explain many divers biblical topics, we just want to cover the covenant today (notice it is not plural). First off, God remembers His covenant. It says so in Psalm 105:8-11
8 He hath remembered his covenant for ever, the word which he commanded to a thousand generations.
9 Which covenant he made with Abraham, and his oath unto Isaac;
10 And confirmed the same unto Jacob for a law, and to Israel for an everlasting covenant:
11 Saying, Unto thee will I give the land of Canaan, the lot of your inheritance:
Therefore, if we keep it in memory and do, God will keep His side for us and perform. Let’s look at the covenant with the fathers. We’ll begin with Abraham.
10 This is my covenant, which ye shall keep, between me and you and thy seed after thee; Every man child among you shall be circumcised.
God’s covenant with Abraham was the circumcision, physically and spiritually, and the blessings of children to the abundance of the stars, and a Seed that would bless all nations (Jesus).
Declared unto you His Covenant
The covenant and blessings were passed down to brother Isaac.
19 And God said, Sarah thy wife shall bear thee a son indeed; and thou shalt call his name Isaac: and I will establish my covenant with him for an everlasting covenant, and with his seed after him.
The covenant with Jacob was nothing but an extension of the blessings and covenant with Abraham and Isaac. It actually states just that:
9 And God appeared unto Jacob again, when he came out of Padanaram, and blessed him.
10 And God said unto him, Thy name is Jacob: thy name shall not be called any more Jacob, but Israel shall be thy name: and he called his name Israel.
11 And God said unto him, I am God Almighty: be fruitful and multiply; a nation and a company of nations shall be of thee, and kings shall come out of thy loins;
12 And the land which I gave Abraham and Isaac, to thee I will give it, and to thy seed after thee will I give the land.
Finally the tenants of the covenant is passed to the children of Israel, which is the actual covenant, besides the covenant given to the 12 tribes that was passed down from their fathers (Abraham, Isaac, and Israel).
5 Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth is mine:
6 And ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests, and an holy nation. These are the words which thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel.
If the children of Israel keep God’s covenant, they will be a peculiar treasure to God above all people of the earth. They will be a kingdom of priest, and an holy nation. This is in addition to the covenants above given to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.
Declared unto you His Covenant
However, they had to keep the tenor of the covenant.
What is the tenor of the Covenant?
13 And he declared unto you his covenant, which he commanded you to perform, even ten commandments; and he wrote them upon two tables of stone.
God’s covenant, which He declared to the mixed multitude of children of Israel for them to perform, is the Ten Commandments. The Ten Commandments is the covenant, written upon two tables of stone.
As we take part in the Ten Commandments, we take part in the blessings given to Abraham, Isaac, and Israel, and we confirm the covenant with Abraham, with the token of the covenant, which is the circumcision.
And he declared unto you His covenant, the Ten Commandments, which He commanded you to perform.
The New Covenant is still has all the tenants of the Old, except that the children of Israel broke the Old, a New Covenant had to be established. Still, the same is declared unto you His covenant!
