It has been a constant source of amazement to me that Jesus has always been painted as poor and indigent -- never mind what the Word clearly states. Ever since the Council of Nicaea in 325 A.D., error after error after error has crept into the body of Christ and promulgated with traditions that have no validity in the Word. The compromises that Constantine made with church leaders in order to bring the Roman Army into the church and declare them to be "Christian" have contaminated the truth ever since.
Good Morning, Good Morning, Good Morning! After weeks of making reference to this series which deals with the foundations of our nation, we're actually going to begin with it today. You will see, as this series unfolds, that every single one of the 50 states in our union recognizes that their existence, as a body politick, flows from God. The rejection of this principle by modern politicians is a huge contributing factor in the chaos which has unfolded since prayer was removed from public schools, and gradually from public discourse.
My hope and plan is to wrap up this part of the series on Covenant today. We’re into this subject now for two and a half months, and we still have a long ways to go! My objective is to now begin sharing on the Covenant that our founding fathers made with the Lord for the establishing of America as a land – a country – dedicated to the propagation of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Our unity with the Lord Jesus Christ is something that Jesus determined from before the foundations of the earth. Stop and think about it! We are told that Jesus “was the Lamb slain before the foundations of the earth.” Why?
We still have some territory to cover before we can get to the Covenant that our early forefathers made with the Lord for the founding of America. Without wasting any time….
Today, if possible, I want to finish the part of our discussion dealing with ãñ•ç• kheseed. When I first began this part of the sharing, it didn’t dawn on me that it was going to become so exhaustive but buckle your seatbelts, when we start to expand on this concept with regard to the establishing of the United States of America, you will see Covenant repeated again and again and again.
We are continuing today with our discussion on the kheseed aspect of Covenant. Guess I didn’t think it would take this long to cover the various aspects of it, but it is too important to simply brush over. Let’s pick up with the last couple of paragraphs from last week so as to connect our thought processes.
The topic of kheseed is one rarely covered in the body of Christ. In my 77+ years, I’ve only heard the topic discussed one time. Because this is part and parcel of all that is real Covenant, it is critical that everyone really get a grasp on this. It is important for us to understand Covenant – especially within the framework of God’s economy, and what He is doing among His people.
We continue today with the unfolding of the concept of Covenant as it expanded in the life of Abraham and Sarah. How would you like to have been in Abraham's place? You cut a covenant with Almighty God, but the cut and mark in your flesh is in a place where you can't show it to the public. God was doing something unique.
Two weeks ago, we were talking about the original Covenant that God made with Abraham. We got part way into that picture, but then I temporarily side-tracked that last week to talk about the Covenant of Marriage. Let’s pick up today with where we left off.
