Psalms 129 – “Many a time they have afflicted me from my youth, “Let Israel now say — 2 “Many a time they have afflicted me from my youth; Yet they have not prevailed against me. 3 The plowers plowed on my back; They made their furrows long.” 4 The LORD is righteous; He has cut in pieces the cords of the wicked. 5 Let all those who hate Zion Be put to shame and turned back. 6 Let them be as the grass on the housetops, Which withers before it grows up, 7 With which the reaper does not fill his hand, Nor he who binds sheaves, his arms. 8 Neither let those who pass by them say, “The blessing of the LORD be upon you; We bless you in the name of the LORD!” NKJV
Blood Covenant as taught in Scripture is one of the most powerful and eye-opening studies I have ever done. I can honestly say that the years I have spent studying this subject has transformed my life, my view of relationships, and deepened my desire to “walk” in COMPLETE HARMONY with GOD. I want my life to be “Spirit-led” in all that I do and all that I say. It is more than a desire it is a passion and a life-long pursuit.
We face, what I believe is the most critical time in human history and from that perspective, it is my deep conviction that it is not just important but “vital” that believers reach the place that they “see”, “understand”, and “walk in” Covenant! It is crystal clear to me that the Church that Jesus is coming back for is a fully mature, fully developed, fully equipped, and fully committed body of believers. Therefore, “if” the Church, the Body of Christ is ever going to “be” what Jesus called us to be, we MUST become “Covenant People.”
PLEASE KNOW THIS:
I am not talking about God becoming our Santa Claus, candy store, mail order catalog, or wish provider – a Genie! I am talking about TOTAL CHRISTIANITY! I am talking about being “completely complete” and “fully mature” believers who are MANIFESTING Jesus here on Earth! I believe that is “only” realized through COVENANT! It is God on His Throne in our lives and in His universe and man “totally” submitted (out of genuine love) to His divine will and purpose IN ALL THINGS! It is life in the “supernatural” as the “natural.”
I embark on this study at the request of several people and say upfront that everyone may not agree. I also want you to understand that it is impossible to cover this subject in a few posts. It will take some time. So hopefully you will be touched, ministered to, and blessed by this study and stay with me through its entirety. Therefore, in order to give you something beneficial which will, I pray, whet your appetite and spur you on to some serious study – – I will address the “key” to Covenant Living. THE BLESSING!
It is my genuine desire to identify the vehicle that puts God’s Covenant in motion and action in our lives and I believe that vehicle is THE BLESSING! For me, this has been one of the most incredible journeys I have ever taken spiritually. I believe that if “truly grasped” it will, TRANSFORM you completely! If you “see” this – – truly “see” it with your spiritual eyes you will NEVER be the same. It will “compel” and “propel” you to walk in God’s fullness, demonstrating His power, manifesting His love, and perpetuating His Kingdom like never before. Your life will become a living Bible and you will enter a spiritual dimension you never dreamed was truly possible.
I am firmly convinced, from Scripture that it is God’s Great Desire to BLESS US! However, in order to fully accomplish this, there has to be an introduction to and participation in what I would call the “Jeremiah Ministry”. That is there will be a “tearing down” and then a “building up.” God leads us out so He can bring us in and too frequently we resist the “leading out” and fail to “enter in” to what He wants to do in its entirety.
That is my introduction to the subject. I hope you are, at least, a little interested and willing to give me a few posts to see if you can and will hang on with me. May God richly bless you as you go through your day and week! You are truly a “treasured treasure” to Him and I value you highly as well.
