31,173 Scriptures / 30,000+ Promises? / 8810 Promises

 

HEBREWS 8:6 NKJV … (Jesus Christ) is also Mediator of a better COVENANT, which was established on better PROMISES.

WHAT IS A COVENANT

A covenant is a binding agreement between two parties, based in both intimacy and law, promising blessing and cursing; and even death to the one who breaks it.

 

A COVENANT IS MORE THAN A CONTRACT

  1. Agree to terms

  2. Select representatives

  3. Cut Blood

  4. Exchange Clothes (Robes - Identity)

  5. Exchange Belts and Weapons (Strength)

  6. Walk unto Death (Sacrificial Animals)

  7. Pronounce Blessings / Cursings (Oaths/Vows)

  8. Seal of Covenant (Most Prized Possessions)

  9. Exchange Names

  10. Commemorate by a Memorial Sign (Piling stones, Planting Trees, Rainbows)

  11. Have a Covenant Meal Together (Ingest Food = Ingest Me)

  12. Exchange of Oldest Male Child

 

OLD COVENANT – NEW COVENANT 

HEBREWS 8:6 NKJV … (Jesus Christ) is also Mediator of a better COVENANT, which was established on better PROMISES.

HEBREWS 8:9-10 NLT This COVENANT will not be like the ONE I MADE WITH THEIR ANCESTORS when I took them by the hand and led them out of the land of Egypt. …10 But this is the NEW COVENANT I will make with the people of Israel on that day, says the LORD: I will put my laws in their minds, and I will write them on their hearts. I will be their God, and they will be my people.

DEUTERONOMY 28:1-2, 15, 20-22, 25 NKJV (God said) If you FULLY OBEY the LORD your God and carefully follow all his COMMANDS I give you today, the LORD your God will set you high above all the nations on earth. 2 All these BLESSINGS will come upon you and accompany you if you obey the LORD your God:

4 Have a fertile womb; crops and livestock will be blessed

5 Your business will be blessed

7 The Lord will protect you from your enemies

8 You will be blessed in bank accounts and other storage houses of blessing; the  circumstances of economies won’t matter to you

9 The LORD will establish you as his holy people, as he promised you on oath, if you keep the commands of the LORD your God and walk in his ways.

13 The LORD will make you the head, not the tail.

 

However, if you DO NOT OBEY the LORD your God and do not carefully follow all his COMMANDS and decrees I am giving you today, all these CURSES will come upon you and overtake you:

  • The Hebrew language, the original text here, does not have a “causative” verb but only a “permissive”. It should say, “God will allow…”  

  • Since the directive is clear, YOU hold the power to initiate blessings and YOU have the power to initiate the cursing. God ONLY allows what you and I initiate.

18 You won’t be able to get pregnant, and you will struggle in both finances and vocational successes

21 You will have sickness, disease and physical weakness

23 Nothing will be easy, no favor, no momentum

39 Unforeseen, pest-like things will spring up. When you do everything right, something will happen to undermine it.

40 You hopes will begin to get up. But in the last minute you will have them crushed.

41 You will be captivity to drugs, alcohol, to people/spouses who don’t like you, literal child abductions, kidnappings, etc.

43 Everyone else gets promoted and are favored over you, while you continue to stagnate and find no favor

50 Life will have no compassion or empathy from anyone who has the human power to change it)

GALATIANS 3:13-14, 29 NKJV CHRIST has REDEEMED us from the CURSE OF THE LAW, having become a curse for us (for it is written, "Cursed [is] everyone who hangs on a tree"), 14 that the BLESSING OF ABRAHAM might come upon the Gentiles in Christ Jesus, that we might receive the PROMISE of the Spirit through faith. ... 29 And if you [are] CHRIST'S, then you are ABRAHAM'S SEED, and HEIRS according to the PROMISE.
