Genesis 17:1-2 – And when Abram was ninety years old and nine, the LORD appeared to Abram, and said unto him, I am the Almighty God; walk before me, and be thou perfect. And I will make my covenant between me and thee, and will multiply thee exceedingly.
In order for a covenant, a truly Biblical covenant to exist, the agreement that is made must be made with a cutting, a separating between two pieces of flesh, and from that cutting, there must be the flowing of blood. That is why covenant is often referred to as a blood covenant. In our modern, high-tech, fast paced world, such a thing is considered to be uncivilized. That is one of the reasons that modern Christianity has lost so much of its power. It has become, at least in the minds of many religious people, an idea of something good that is come upon by some carnal, or natural means. My friend, such thinking is completely unbiblical and offers no basis for substantive Christianity.
This year, upon which we have just entered, will by no means be the first year of covenant in the mind of God. In the mind of our heavenly Father, our God Who changes not (Malachi 3:6; Hebrews 13:8), the covenant we will examine was in place before the foundation of the world. Before heaven and earth were created, before all that exists in the earth was created, before man was formed from the dust of the earth in the garden of Eden, before God breathed into man the breath of life, God’s covenant was already established. It has not gone away. It has not been nullified or voided. On the contrary, it has been activated, acted upon, lived, and fulfilled, but never removed or taken away. As we approach the time for the coming of the Lord for His church, the fulfilling God’s covenant will be seen in greater and greater measure. Father has established the standards for that fulfilling, and they will be met. I believe 2022 will be the greatest manifestation of that work that has ever been witnessed. Selah!
