Covenant Keeper

The nature of God is not altered by the choices of humanity. The covenant of God is not broken or destroyed because of the disobedience of people. Our God is the same, yesterday, today and forever (Hebrews 13:8). When God makes a covenant with His people, it is not dependent on the people’s actions that keeps the covenant in tact, it is based on the powerful words of God that made the covenant. God made a covenant with us in His Son Jesus the Christ. That covenant will never be broken, no matter what we do. We can walk away from the covenant, we can come back into the covenant; we can enjoy the benefits of the covenant or we can think we know better and do our own thing. It does not change the covenant, for God is not a man that He should lie (Numbers 23:19).

God made a covenant with Israel through their father Abraham in Genesis 18; God made a covenant with Noah in Genesis 9; God made a covenant with David in 2 Samuel 7; all three of these covenants are evident right now today and trust me humanity has done some wicked things between when they were spoken and now, but the covenant remains. Everytime you see a rainbow you are seeing the covenant God made with Noah. Everytime you pray in Jesus name, you are hearing the covenant God made with David. Everytime you hear of Israel on the news, you are hearing and seeing God’s covenant with Abraham. My friends covenants are not conditional, they are covenants.

God knows how wicked people can be, He understands the power of sin and all its tenticles, but He still made a covenant with us through Jesus Christ. You may walk away from the covenant but God never will that is why you can always come back. Listen to the Psalm 106 “Many times He would deliver them; They, however, were rebellious in their counsel, And so sank down in their iniquity. Nevertheless He looked upon their distress When He heard their cry; And He remembered His covenant for their sake, And relented according to the greatness of His lovingkindness. He also made them objects of compassion In the presence of all their captors.” The nature of God does not change because of the choices of people. The gospel of the kingdom preaches the nature of God, for that is the revelation of Jesus Christ, a covenant keeper!
