COVENANT OF MULTIPLICATION

And I will make my covenant between Me and you, and will multiply you exceedingly. Genesis 17:2... God made a number of covenants in the Old Testament and then concluded them all in Jesus Christ. The most well known of these covenants were with Adam, Noah, Abraham, Moses and David. The verse above refers to the covenant made with Abraham. God promises He will multiply the blessings with the ones He is in covenant with. God multiplied Abraham, Issac and Jacob. He gave them the bounty and the Promised Land. He blessed those who blessed them and cursed those who cursed them. According to the history of the Bible and the testimony of the book of Jasher, the lineage of Abraham, Issac and Jacob were greatly feared among the nations because of the blessings of God that were on them. Our expectation and faith in what God will do for us is dependent upon knowing the promise of the covenant He has made with us. Galatians 3:14 states that the covenant blessing of Abraham is for us in the new cov…

GOD'S PROMISES...YES AND AMEN!!!

For all the promises of God in Him are yes, and in Him Amen, to the glory of God through us. 2 Corinthians 1:20... God is of impeccable integrity. What He means He says and what He says He means. He is not a man that He should lie. You can trust Him at His word. He will do what He says will do! Our faith lies in the understanding of our covenant with God. That understanding is that it takes two parties and each of them must be faithful to do their part. The context of 2 Cor. 1:20 is that your yes is yes and that your no is no. This is good news to those in covenant with God. He will do what He says He will do, AND He will not do what He says He will not do. If God says He will not fulfill His covenant with those who don't walk after Him with their whole heart (2 Chron. 6:14), then He is just as reliable in that promise as when He says He will bless those who bless you. God gave us His Word on it!!! His promises are yes and amen. My personal thought on this is Holy Spirit is the ye…

BELIEVE TO SEE

The world view is that we have to "see" to believe. Hence the phrase seeing is believing; while on the other hand the kingdom principle is to believe then we see. This seems to be the practical truth, The kingdom of God is upside down and backward from the world and always will be until who is perfect returns!!!

UNITY

FOR WE BEING MANY ARE ONE BREAD, AND ONE BODY; FOR WE ARE ALL PARTAKERS OF THAT ONE BREAD. 1 CORINTHIANS 10:17 The night Jesus was betrayed, He took bread and He broke it. He gave a piece to each disciple but when you put the pieces together, it still makes one loaf. Likewise, we are all members of the one body because we are all partakers of that one bread. Christ is NOT divided and we are all members of the one body!!! The bread we eat is no different than anyone else's and the cup is the same blood. When we take communion let's remember the others in the body of Christ. Blessed are the peacemakers for they shall inherit the kingdom of heaven(the 1000 year reign of Jesus on earth). Let's start working together for the unity of the faith. When you take communion today, pray for the unity of the body of Christ...Amen?
