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 covenant. This means that God still promises to multiply those who walk and seek after Him. As You take communion you are renewing your covenant with God that you will seek Him and that He will multiply YOU!!!
In John 6:48-51 it reads in The Passion , "I AM the true Bread of Life. Your ancestors ate manna in the desert and died. But standing here before you is the true Bread that comes out of heaven, and when you eat this Bread you will never die. I alone am this living Bread that has come to you from heaven. Eat this Bread and you will live forever. The living Bread I give is my body, which I will offer as a sacrifice so that all may live." There is a difference between eternal life and living forever. The only reason I would die is if there is a record of sin in my DNA. I do not need to die, none of us do. But we need to undergo transformation by applying the body and blood of Jesus. The body and blood of Jesus carry the record of the DNA of God. We can age and die, or we can take the body and blood of Jesus within ourselves, and live forever!. Jesus says in John 6:58, "I am not like the bread your ancestors ate and later died. I am the living Bread that comes from heaven.
