As I was scrolling the tv, I stopped at a great pastor, a lady by the way, who talked about Abraham’s faith. Through her, I learned about the three covenants in the bible: Abrahamic, Mosaic and New. The Abrahamic law states people earn their salvation through inheritance from Abraham while the Mosaic law stipulates that salvation is gained through sacrifices. To compare the two, we see Abrahamic as unconditional while Mosaic the opposite. Far sublime and loving than the Abrahamic is the New Covenant that salvation after Christ died in the cross becomes open to all, which makes salvation based on position. This means those who believe in Christ are automatically saved. This belief is usually not proclaimed in other churches. Hence, people miss out on the real meaning of Christ’s dying on the cross. Tsk tsk!
God touched me today with His covenant with Abraham. I felt He was talking to me, assuring me all of His promises will come true, as long as I focus on Him, and not on anything else.
When Abraham asked God for a proof of His promise, God asked Abraham to prepare for a blood covenant which was the greatest, most legal, sacred form of promise during their time. That night, however, Abraham fell asleep and woke up to a burning oven, encircling the carcasses and blood of sacrificial animals. It only showed that God doesn’t want the covenant to be broken, so He ensured that He did it all by Himself. Amazing right? It was never broken, and has continued to pour over all believers up to this age! If Abraham was awake and did the compact with God, the promise would have ended when Abraham died because the covenant would have become null and void.
It’s amazing! Amazing!
In one sentence: Believe in God’s promises and focus only on Him!
Sending God’s love,
