At this beginning of another 2017 week, we all need to walk onwards knowing who we are and what our purposes in our circumstances may be.
I found the image above when I was researching about covenants. The dictionary definition of Divine Covenant…. this agreement is between the Divine and mortals sealed with a ‘sign’ and is meant to be eternal unless one party breaks the oath of ALLEGIANCE.
The Rainbow is such a covenant. It is more than about no more rain upon the earth ie in Genesis – It is a God sign.
God is Love. He loves all people. (even the ones who choose not to be in a Covenant relationship with the Saviour.) Christ said….‘Follow Me’. Salvation is a covenant sealed in blood.
A Covenant relationship is therefore conditional upon a two-way commitment. (in the case of Holy Matrimony (when a man and a woman vow to have a covenant relationship with each other and with God only then is it a covenantal relationship in its fullest sense). God must be the highest LOVE or there is no covenant. Love the Lord your God with all your heart mind and soul and ‘others’ as yourself.
Think on this……I may not be right….but it has always seemed to me that the rainbow stretching across the sky from extremity to extremity is like an embrace. It represents to me with all its colours – like the colours of life – DIVINE LOVE – GRACE AND LOVE. Without Grace on this earth or the Hand of God embracing the world………is that the end? Is that when HIS KINGDOM WILL COME?
Just a thought!
Let’s all journey this week. Our Goal Loving HIM……….Loving the world around us. Let the ones fighting and striving to exercise their ‘free’ will enjoy this life………Covenant people live now and live in the Hope of ETERNITY as well.
Peace and Grace to you!.
