Know therefore that the Lord thy God, he is God, the faithful God, which keepeth covenant and mercy with them that love him and keep his commandments to a thousand generations; Deuteronomy 7:9 (KJV)
A covenant is an agreement between a higher being and a lesser being with a seal of blood; in the covenant the higher being promises the lesser being and there is a demand of obligation from the lesser being. There are many covenants in the Bible: Adamic covenant, Abrahamic covenant, Mosaic covenant etc. There could also be covenants between lesser beings with the invocation of a deity. An example is the covenant between David and Jonathan, 1 Samuel 20:16. The opening scripture said we should know that God is a faithful God, He does not break his covenant, He is merciful to those who love him and his commandments go beyond a thousand generations. It presupposes that some children of God lack detail knowledge about God. How well you know God determines how far you will go with Him and the blessings you will receive from Him. Dear beloved, how well do you know the almighty God? What covenant do you have with him? In the New Testament, Christians have a covenant with Jesus Christ and this is sealed by his blood, therefore, he will not leave us nor forsake us. Hallelujah! Share your comments here!
