"Be Ye Mindful..."

“Be Ye Mindful…”

Blessings folk!

God is covenant making.
God is covenant keeping.

We must know this.
We must remember this.

While we live.
Especially when we praise Him.

It is upon His Covenant nature that we stand, trust and rest.

1Ch 16:15-17
Be ye mindful always of his covenant; the word which he commanded to a thousand generations;
Even of the covenant which he made with Abraham, and of his oath unto Isaac;
And hath confirmed the same to Jacob for a law, and to Israel for an everlasting covenant,

We are to always be mindful of HIs Covenant.
The sad reality is this - most believers are clueless and have no knowledge of God’s covenant(s).

We learn some about a particular covenant in this passage.
It was with Abraham.
God made it.
God initiated it. (Genesis 12, 15)
It is commanded to a thousand generations - another way of saying “forever”.
God confirmed His covenant with Abraham’s sons of the covenant - Isaac and Jacob.
God confirmed HIs covenant with Israel for an everlasting covenant.

Without end.
This has direct application to our time.
God’s covenant with Israel is everlasting - without end.

Therefore, how should we view Israel?
Certainly not as many in “mainstream”, “liberal”, “progressive” portions of the professing Body of Christ do.

Be mindful.
Do not forget.
Give thanks to the Lord for His covenant.
Rejoice in that most of us have been grafted in…
