UNDERSTANDING THE COVENANT
God is a covenant cutting, covenant keeping and covenant remembering God. He wants His people to work like that on the earth. Unfortunately, many of His children don’t have a full understanding of the covenant. Understanding is much more critical than passion where the covenant is concerned. There are too many passionate Christians who are not enjoying the benefits of the covenant.
Many of the things we do in the body of Christ have a covenant basis but because we don’t have a grip of the covenant in our minds, we do them and bring some mysticism around them. God wants to remove the mysticism and bring it into a level that you can grasp very clearly.
For example, when you plead the Blood of Jesus, do you know what you are doing? The word ‘plead’ is a legal term that is calling the attention of the Judge, in this case, God Almighty, to the covenant that is established on that Blood. It is calling the attention of the Judge to the price that was paid with that Blood and the reality of the covenant that has come into force.
When you plead the Blood, you must know that you are not doing something magical. There is a legal side and an actual side that is taking place in the Spirit. When you plead the Blood of Jesus over a land, you have the right to do that because the Blood was shed for sinners. You are pleading the Blood against the devil doing something against what Jesus had shed His Blood for.
PRAYER: I receive a baptism of understanding to walk in the fullness of the benefits of the covenant in Jesus name.
