Covenant Keeping God – July 5, 2020

Preached by Pastor Kunle Oladebo

Deuteronomy 7:9 – 12

  1. Introduction
    • Covenant is a solemn agreement and binding promise of far-reaching importance
    • Divine covenant is based on love
      • Expression of love from God to His beloved
        • Between two unequal partners
      • God has been in this ‘covenant’ business for a very long time
        • Adamic
        • Noahic
        • Abrahamic
        • Davidic
        • Messaic
        • Covenant between David and Jonathan
    • The non-fulfillment of the covenant is dependent on man
      • Based on a constant God and a variable man
      • Psalm 89:34 (KJV) – “I will not violate my covenant
            or alter what my lips have uttered.”
      • Non fulfillment is not dependent on God, but man, since man’s variableness may not be meeting the condition for man to benefit from the covenant
    • It takes covenant to thrive amidst adversity
      • When things are not going as you expected – REMEMBER God is able.
      • Jews are operating under the Abrahamic covenant — they thrive in ALL areas and rule despite all their afflictions
        • Mark Zuckerberg
        • Larry Page
        • Steven Cohen
        • Michael Bloomberg
      • WE are Jews by second-birth and we also can benefit from the Covenant
  2. The Covenants
    • Covenant of Life
      • Long life and achievements (fruitful in the land)
      • As you are running the race of life, you are running it to benefit humanity, to benefit your generation
      • Take covenant of life not to fear death
      • Break the yoke of untimely death
    • Covenant of Peace
      • “Peace cannot be kept by force.  It can only be achieved by understanding.” Albert Einstein

      • Peace is a gift from above.  It is a blessing from the Lord.
      • You only get peace from the Prince of Peace.
      • Psalm 29:11 (KJV) – “The Lord will give strength unto his people; the Lord will bless his people with peace.”
      • Be passionate for the Lord
      • Phinehas, son of Aaron, was zealous for the Lord.  God gave Him the covenant of peace because he was zealous for the Lord.  Numbers 25:11- 12 (KJV)  “Wherefore say, Behold, I give unto him my covenant of peace:”
    • Covenant of Healing and Health
    • Covenant of Wealth and Prosperity
      • Your part is total obedience – Isaiah 1:19 (KJV) ” If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land:
      • Deuteronomy 29:9 (KJV) – “Keep therefore the words of this covenant, and do them, that ye may prosper in all that ye do.”
      • Deuteronomy 13:9 – 10 (KJV) – “And the Lord thy God will make thee plenteous in every work of thine hand, in the fruit of thy body, and in the fruit of thy cattle, and in the fruit of thy land, for good: for the Lord will again rejoice over thee for good, as he rejoiced over thy fathers: 10 If thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the Lord thy God, to keep his commandments and his statutes which are written in this book of the law, and if thou turn unto the Lord thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul.”
    • Covenant of Protection

You are a child of covenant.  Live and stand on the covenants, and your life shall be a huge success.
