Knowing & Walking in Your Spiritual Authority – Part XII

God’s Covenants with Man

Why did God flood the earth in the first place? Because if He hadn’t, there wouldn’t have been a virgin left on planet earth for Jesus to be born through. Violence was everywhere and growing more and more wicked as time went on. In His mercy, God caused the flood to save mankind from total destruction forever and ever.

After Noah, He made a covenant with Abraham, which is a very interesting turn of events. Abraham walked by faith with God and was a friend of God’s. Little by little God led Abraham to a deeper and deeper commitment of faith in Him until one day, He asked Abraham to offer Isaac, the promised child, as a sacrifice to Him.

Genesis 22:2(KJV) 2 And he said, Take now thy son, thine only son Isaac, whom thou lovest, and get thee into the land of Moriah; and offer him there for a burnt offering upon one of the mountains which I will tell thee of.

I want you to notice that Abraham didn’t hesitate or even argue with God. He did what was asked of him because of the Covenant he and God had made. And remember, Isaac was the promised child that Abraham and Sarah had waited for all those years. This is extremely important because of the future event that was to come.

Since Abraham was willing to offer his son for a sacrifice, it opened the door for God to offer His Son, Jesus, for the sins of the whole human race. Praise the Lord for Abraham’s faith in God and his obedience to the Covenant!

There’s a lot more to the Covenants God made with people but this is what I want you to see for now.
