Topic: COVENANT: BEING ON SAME PAGE WITH GOD
Bible Reading: Judges 13:2-5
📖2….”And there was a certain man of Zorah, of the family of the Danites, whose name was Manoah; and his wife was barren, and bare not.
📖3….And the angel of the LORD appeared unto the woman, and said unto her, Behold now, thou art barren, and bearest not: but thou shalt conceive, and bear a son.
📖4….Now therefore beware, I pray thee, and drink not wine nor strong drink, and eat not any unclean thing:
📖5….For, lo, thou shalt conceive, and bear a son; and no razor shall come on his head: for the child shall be a Nazarite unto God from the womb: and he shall begin to deliver Israel out of the hand of the Philistines.”
🔥As God created the entire world by covenant, so, he sustains it by covenant. Hence man’s efforts to reach up to God in religion, are always futile because the abode of God is unknown to man. Because of this, man will not be able to locate the God he is reaching up to religiously. No wonder many religious seekers end up in idolatry and cultism. But through Christianity, man and God will meet. Since the creator, who is reaching down to man, knows where his creature, man, is.
🔥🔥Christianity is a covenant relationship of man with God. It is an agreement of eternal blessing entered into by man and God. Humanity was made by God to live in covenant with Him. So, the prosperity and poverty of man is predicated on keeping the covenant terms. As Christians, we are under a covenant obligation to obey God and live, or disobey God and suffer. It was this covenant of obedience that prospered Joshua in Joshua 1:8. This covenant was made possible with a signature of God, called the blood of Jesus, shed on the Cross at Calvary. It is always reenacted at the Communion table.
🔥🔥🔥Before Samson was born, the Lord sent the covenant terms that would both prosper and protect him, ahead of him. He was neither to drink alcohol, touch dead bodies nor have the hair of his head cut. All the time he kept the covenant terms, he prevailed. But after he went to the vineyards of Timnath, and both drank alcohol and touched the dead body of the lion, his relationship with God began to dwindle. And finally, when he had his hair cut by Delilah, he failed in his covenant with God. And so was prevailed against by the Philistines. Child of God, are you disobeying God in any way in your faith? Amend your ways and return to your first love. Many Christians have received half victory because of partial covenant keeping. To be on acceptable page with God, is to keep his covenants. Repair the broken ones, and come alive with God.
🙏Heavenly Father, no matter where I am led by lack of understanding, use your omnipotence to bind me to your covenants, in Jesus’ name.
🙏🙏Ancient of days, prevent me from every fellowship that will make me your enemy, in Jesus’ name.
🙏🙏🙏 Glorious Redeemer, by your blood signature upon the covenant of protection for me, declare me untouchable by the enemies, in Jesus’ name.
