Last week I shared the Intro to The Covenant Stories. Today the difference between contracts and covenants were explained. There were also many scriptures that mentions Covenants in the Bible. If you would like to take a look at your Bible before next week, here are some verses that you can highlight or write out the touch on the seven Covenants that I mentioned in the podcast, Episode #49, Listen here.
Travel back in time with me to the Ancient Hebrew way of thinking
The story of the Bible is the story of the Hebrew wife of God and the Gentile Bride of Christ grafted into the Hebrews.
The Abrahamic Covenant. Is it still relevant to us today? It began as a blood covenant with Abram. God called Himself “The God of Abraham” “The God of Isaac” and “The God of Jacob” and ultimately the God of Israel. Through Jesus, we can all have access to salvation, the Jew and the Gentile. The Abrahamic Covenant, made new, better translated as “re-newed” in the strongs ( a primate root; to be new, causatively to rebuild:-renew, repair) is now a better covenant through Jesus Christ. Psalm 105:7-11

Just a reminder as you study your Bible to look at what you are reading through the eyes of those who it was written for. The Hebrew Culture is different than ours at present so little nuances can be lost if we are not paying attention. Enjoy time reading the love letters that God saved for us throughout the centuries. One day, those who have put their trust in Him, through His son Jesus, will see Him face to face. He loves you and wants to spend time with you.
