Andrew Murray: Our Covenant

Our Covenant

by Andrew Murray

 “And I will be their God, and they shall be My people.” (Jer. 24:7)

Do not pass these words lightly. They express the very highest experience of the Covenant relationship. It is only when His people learn to love and obey His law, when their heart and life are together wholly devoted to Him and His will, that He can be to them the altogether inconceivable blessing which these words express, “I will be your God.” All I am and have as God shall be yours. All you can need or wish for in a God, I will be to you. In the fullest meaning of the word, I, the Omnipresent, will be ever present with you, in all My grace and love. I, the Almighty One, will each moment work all in you by My mighty power. I, the Thrice Holy One, will reveal My sanctifying life within You. I will be your God. And ye shall be My people, saved and blessed, ruled and guided and provided for by Me, known and seen to be indeed the people of the Holy One, the God of glory. Only let us give our hearts time to meditate and wait for the Holy Spirit to work in us all that these words mean. Continue reading

Kenneth Copeland: Covenant of Joint Heirs

Copeland: Covenant, joint heirs

Years after Isaac’s birth, that covenant was still strong in Abraham’s mind. And nothing—not
even a request from God Himself—could shake his confidence. We see this in Genesis 22. There God asks Abraham to place his only son on the
altar and sacrifice him. How could He do this after promising Abraham that he would become the father of many nations through this son

Andrew Wommack: A Person Can Be Born Again Without Abiding…

A person can be born again without abiding…
Andrew Wommack:

“He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.”

This is a promise of favor and protection to those who dwell in the secret place of the most High (see my note at Psalms 91:14). This is for those who DWELL there, not visit there. This is talking about ABIDING in Christ (John 15:4). This is speaking of those who make the Lord their habitation (Psalms 91:9). *A person can be born again without abiding in Christ.*
Abiding in Christ gives us entrance into the protection of the Almighty. The Hebrew word that was translated “shadow” here is “TSEL,” and it was translated “defense” once in Numbers 14:9 and twice in Ecclesiastes 7:12. Those continuously trusting in the Lord will have Him come to their defense.

God is love (1 John 4:8), so to abide in God means we have to abide in love (1 John 4:16). Those who haven’t heard the good news of God’s unconditional love and grace through Jesus can’t abide in love, and the wrath of the Old Testament Law will keep them from receiving God’s love and blessings.

The Hebrew word “CETHER,” which was translated “secret place” in this verse, was also translated “secret place” in Psalms 18:11. Psalms 27:5 speaks of being hidden in the “secret” (CETHER) of His tabernacle. And Psalms 31:20 says the Lord will hide us in the “secret” (CETHER) of His presence.

I Had a Headache…

I got a headache last night. I don’t get headaches, so I wasn’t quite sure what to do with it. I know I couldn’t think straight.  The only thing I knew to do was to cast any evil off and command my body to get in line with God’s will for me to NOT have that headache. 

I hate pain. That makes it easy for me to identify and quickly get on top of it. But we can get accustomed to things that oppose the Lord by slowly absorbing the things around us from the world.  Things can get left unattended and they begin to become a part of our makeup. That is why it is very important to keep our minds renewed with the Word of God. 

Covenant: Strength


Circumcision was the sign of the covenant. By calling Goliath uncircumcised, David was making this very pointed statement: “He may be a giant; he may be strong; but he has no covenant with God, and that’s why I can kill him.” Kcm
