The Everlasting Covenant
Hebrews 13:20-21 “Now the God of peace, that brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant,
Make you perfect in every good work to do His will, working in you that which is well pleasing in His sight, through Jesus Christ; to Whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.”
A covenant is an binding agreement where one agrees to give something, if the other agrees to do something.
God the Father agreed to draw and give all the elect to God the Son:
John 6:37 “All that the Father giveth Me cometh to Me; and him that cometh to Me I will in no wise cast out.”
God the Son, agreed to become the man, Christ Jesus and die for all the elect at the fullness of time:
Galatians 4:4-5 “But when the fullness of the time was come, God sent forth His Son, made of a woman, made under the law,
To redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons.”
John 6:40 “And this is the will of Him that sent Me, everyone that seeth the Son, and believeth on Him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up in the last day.”
God the Holy Spirit, agreed to be the agency by which faith is produced within us, and to stay with us, as our Comforter:
John 6:63 “It is the Spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit and they are life.”
John 14:26 “But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, Whom the Father will send in My name, He shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.”
The triune God made this Everlasting Covenant before they even created the earth.
For They saw, by their Omniscience, that sin would enter into the world by the man they would create. And that by that sin, man would have to be separated from God, the greatest Good.
All was lost to God. He showed me once, just what a great loss it was to Him.
So They made full provision for the salvation of man: through the blood of the everlasting covenant.
That blood was shed on Calvary by our Lord Jesus Christ. He paid the price to redeem us from every sin, for all who come to Him.
Luke 19:10 “For the Son of Man is come to seek and to save that which was lost.”
And to make us perfect (complete) in all the works we are to do, by the merits of Jesus. Changing us into the character of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
They made this covenant before the world was created; so that we might be saved. For God loved us before He even created the earth. Hallelujah!
