Exodus 6:1-3 (KJV) 1 Then the LORD (Yahweh the Covenant Keeping God) said unto Moses, Now shalt thou see what I will do to Pharaoh: for with a strong hand shall he let them go, and with a strong hand shall he drive them out of his land. 2 And God (the Creator) spake unto Moses, and said unto him, I am the LORD (the covenant keeping god): 3 And I appeared unto Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto Jacob, by the name of God Almighty (the Covenant Keeping God who is Almighty), but by my name JEHOVAH (Yahweh) was I not known to them.
It is mostly true that the people of the Lord today do not know the God we serve in a covenant relationship. They knew him as Almighty because of the works he did for them but they didn’t know him in covenant relationship. This church must add covenant to being born again and begin to get out of Babylon.
Revelation 18:4 (KJV) 4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.
The word plagues means a death stroke just like in Egypt. Before they left Egypt they went through the bloody door; (see Exodus 12:1-13), and because they left under a covenant relationship the death angel did not touch them. The first born of all those who did not enter into covenant died. They Lord says in Revelation come out of her “my” people. He is talking to “his” people. The deceiver, Satan has given back to God’s people all the stumbling blocks in Revelation. The church world not knowing that by being involved in those things that it breaks covenant or you cannot enter into a blood covenant
Revelation 12:11 (KJV) 11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.
The word testimony means evidence giving judicial record or report or legal testimony. You must have written beside your name in the book of life that you’ve entered into a testimony or report for record that you have entered into a blood covenant to overcome during the time you cannot go to the hospital, drive, buy or sell or do anything without the mark or chip in your hand or forehead. The word mark means to scratch or etch. The church must add covenant to their born again experience. We got born again but we didn’t enter into covenant to be made whole. At that time the church world not being in covenant are going to die like flies in a room full of fly poison.
President Trump has been a spoiler for the plan of putting chips in people in the year 2017 because of what he is doing with the health care act. If Hillary Clinton was in office now the plan would be to put chips in the people with health care. The health care bill was patterned after the world socialized medicine. They have decided they are not going to fine people who are not on the health care plan. There is a religious exemption. Trump being elected as president is the work of the Lord. It does not mean he is a godly man just like Nebuchadnezzar and other kings the Lord used to punish the people. The Lord called these people his sword. In the case with President Trump he’s put in the works for the embassy to be moved from Jerusalem. This is one of the steps that they will take before building the place for the Jews. There are things he is doing under his watch.
Under the health care bill Barack Obama joked you could kill your mom. They want to have a one world army, tax, government. People don’t read the entire bills but read only part of it. Sarah Palin who ran for Vice President under John McCain read the whole thing and found out you can have your parents put down. A syndicated columnist read through it and said it is true.
I have a form from a former dairy farmer that I show people. It’s from a farmer here in the state of Michigan in the Unites States. This Michigan farmer took his father to the Lancing medical unit and was given a form to sign. By signing it he would have been agreeing to have his ninety year old father implanted with a microchip. Under socialized medical treatment they don’t’ want to treat someone that age. He did not sign so his father did not get a chip implanted. If your parent is that old and their mind is gone here in the United States they call it Alzheimer’s which is being senile, their mind is gone.
Some years ago when I was in Ghana I heard it called when you grow up. If you have some type of condition or disease or your mind is gone you can take your parent to a doctor and have them killed or put down just like you would your pet. One of the reasons they want to teach evolution is so you believe you are just another animal. It is considered that you would be a drain on society so it wouldn’t bother someone to take an elderly person, your mother or father to the doctor to receive a shot to end their life. This is where the world is headed.
In Oregon and other states here in the United States you can legally kill yourself. There was an article in a magazine about a lady that wasn’t made whole and didn’t believe she would recover from her illness so she called her friends together for a gathering or party. Afterwards she went out on a hill and took the pills they gave her and took her life. This is where the world is going.
For the believer to enter into covenant you must come out of Babylon.
The scripture tells us there is a stumbling block in the church that is a hindrance to entering into the blood covenant.
In my church we used to sing a song “When I See the Blood I Will Pass Over You”, so In the time when the plagues are pouring out on his people he says come out of her my people. When the Lord sees a blood covenant has been applied to your heart the death stroke will pass over you.
In the old covenant the death angel went around and saw those that came through the bloody door and entered into God’s covenant, the death angel passed over them. There will be one more time in history where the death angel will pass over those who applied a blood covenant to their hearts.
Many Jewish brothers and sisters still celebrate the Passover of years ago. Many of them have come to the Lord on gentile scriptures not knowing their history as they should. They need to know the Lord Jesus Christ has become our Passover. There are a lot of things the church must do to get herself ready. We need to be ready to overcome during the time of persecution, without a spot or wrinkle. We must know our God in a covenant relationship.
There are different examples throughout the scripture many places it says the Lord God of Israel and what it is really saying is the Covenant Keeping God the Creator of Israel. The Lord has kept his word to Abraham that his children would not be totally cut off. It was prophesied if they sin they will be punished but their names would not be totally cut off.
Joshua 8:1 (KJV) 1 And the LORD (Yahweh the Covenant Keeping God) said unto Joshua, Fear not, neither be thou dismayed: take all the people of war with thee, and arise, go up to Ai: see, I have given into thy hand the king of Ai, and his people, and his city, and his land:
If we read in Joshua chapter 9 we read the importance of keeping your word. When you raise your hand (Romans 10:9) if thou shall make a binding agreement or covenant with your mouth the salvation of the covenant keeping God shall make you whole, you’re swearing an oath that there won’t be any other gods before you. You’re going to serve the Almighty God the Creator. This will be your legal testimony.
In my case or our case I came onto the scriptures that were preached to the Jews in Acts 2:28 that every one of you had to be baptized in the name of Jesus. This was for the Jews for us gentiles we should have come onto the scriptures with Romans 10:9.
Acts 2:38 (KJV) 38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.
Many people do not understand the idea of entering into covenant and keeping your word. People do not understand how important it is on what they say and what they do before the Lord in keeping your word. Even though you are in a covenant relationship and make mistakes like in Joshua.
Joshua 8:1-35 (KJV) 1 And the LORD said unto Joshua, Fear not, neither be thou dismayed: take all the people of war with thee, and arise, go up to Ai: see, I have given into thy hand the king of Ai, and his people, and his city, and his land: 2 And thou shalt do to Ai and her king as thou didst unto Jericho and her king: only the spoil thereof, and the cattle thereof, shall ye take for a prey unto yourselves: lay thee an ambush for the city behind it. 3 So Joshua arose, and all the people of war, to go up against Ai: and Joshua chose out thirty thousand mighty men of valour, and sent them away by night. 4 And he commanded them, saying, Behold, ye shall lie in wait against the city, even behind the city: go not very far from the city, but be ye all ready: 5 And I, and all the people that are with me, will approach unto the city: and it shall come to pass, when they come out against us, as at the first, that we will flee before them, 6 (For they will come out after us) till we have drawn them from the city; for they will say, They flee before us, as at the first: therefore we will flee before them. 7 Then ye shall rise up from the ambush, and seize upon the city: for the LORD your God will deliver it into your hand. 8 And it shall be, when ye have taken the city, that ye shall set the city on fire: according to the commandment of the LORD shall ye do. See, I have commanded you. 9 Joshua therefore sent them forth: and they went to lie in ambush, and abode between Bethel and Ai, on the west side of Ai: but Joshua lodged that night among the people.
10 And Joshua rose up early in the morning, and numbered the people, and went up, he and the elders of Israel, before the people to Ai. 11 And all the people, even the people of war that were with him, went up, and drew nigh, and came before the city, and pitched on the north side of Ai: now there was a valley between them and Ai. 12 And he took about five thousand men, and set them to lie in ambush between Bethel and Ai, on the west side of the city. 13 And when they had set the people, even all the host that was on the north of the city, and their liers in wait on the west of the city, Joshua went that night into the midst of the valley. 14 And it came to pass, when the king of Ai saw it, that they hasted and rose up early, and the men of the city went out against Israel to battle, he and all his people, at a time appointed, before the plain; but he wist not that there were liers in ambush against him behind the city. 15 And Joshua and all Israel made as if they were beaten before them, and fled by the way of the wilderness. 16 And all the people that were in Ai were called together to pursue after them: and they pursued after Joshua, and were drawn away from the city. 17 And there was not a man left in Ai or Bethel, that went not out after Israel: and they left the city open, and pursued after Israel. 18 And the LORD said unto Joshua, Stretch out the spear that is in thy hand toward Ai; for I will give it into thine hand. And Joshua stretched out the spear that he had in his hand toward the city. 19 And the ambush arose quickly out of their place, and they ran as soon as he had stretched out his hand: and they entered into the city, and took it, and hasted and set the city on fire. 20 And when the men of Ai looked behind them, they saw, and, behold, the smoke of the city ascended up to heaven, and they had no power to flee this way or that way: and the people that fled to the wilderness turned back upon the pursuers. 21 And when Joshua and all Israel saw that the ambush had taken the city, and that the smoke of the city ascended, then they turned again, and slew the men of Ai. 22 And the other issued out of the city against them; so they were in the midst of Israel, some on this side, and some on that side: and they smote them, so that they let none of them remain or escape. 23 And the king of Ai they took alive, and brought him to Joshua. 24 And it came to pass, when Israel had made an end of slaying all the inhabitants of Ai in the field, in the wilderness wherein they chased them, and when they were all fallen on the edge of the sword, until they were consumed, that all the Israelites returned unto Ai, and smote it with the edge of the sword. 25 And so it was, that all that fell that day, both of men and women, were twelve thousand, even all the men of Ai. 26 For Joshua drew not his hand back, wherewith he stretched out the spear, until he had utterly destroyed all the inhabitants of Ai. 27 Only the cattle and the spoil of that city Israel took for a prey unto themselves, according unto the word of the LORD which he commanded Joshua. 28 And Joshua burnt Ai, and made it an heap for ever, even a desolation unto this day. 29 And the king of Ai he hanged on a tree until eventide: and as soon as the sun was down, Joshua commanded that they should take his carcase down from the tree, and cast it at the entering of the gate of the city, and raise thereon a great heap of stones, that remaineth unto this day. 30 Then Joshua built an altar unto the LORD God of Israel in mount Ebal, 31 As Moses the servant of the LORD commanded the children of Israel, as it is written in the book of the law of Moses, an altar of whole stones, over which no man hath lift up any iron: and they offered thereon burnt offerings unto the LORD, and sacrificed peace offerings. 32 And he wrote there upon the stones a copy of the law of Moses, which he wrote in the presence of the children of Israel. 33 And all Israel, and their elders, and officers, and their judges, stood on this side the ark and on that side before the priests the Levites, which bare the ark of the covenant of the LORD, as well the stranger, as he that was born among them; half of them over against mount Gerizim, and half of them over against mount Ebal; as Moses the servant of the LORD had commanded before, that they should bless the people of Israel. 34 And afterward he read all the words of the law, the blessings and cursings, according to all that is written in the book of the law. 35 There was not a word of all that Moses commanded, which Joshua read not before all the congregation of Israel, with the women, and the little ones, and the strangers that were conversant among them.
Even though they had a covenant agreement with the Lord but because they didn’t consult the Lord they were deceived and made a covenant with these people. If they had broken the covenant they made with these people the Lord would have punished them. In our minds we do not think that way. We would think “well they deceived us so we will kill them anyway”. This is not how they thought in Joshua. They understood covenant. Nowadays we do not have that kind of thinking. The Lord would have punished Israel if they had broken the covenant they made. To us it does not make sense but that is the strength of someone giving their word. We will cover more examples of being in covenant in the next article.
