In our society today, some people don’t want to hear anything about God or religion, yet ignorance of spiritual things are holding them down and are responsible for the majority of calamities happening to them and their families.
This post is another spiritual warfare series in which we will be exposing another mystery, this time the positive or negative impacts of ancient covenants
It is highly unfortunate that lack of spiritual understanding or spiritual ignorance is responsible or the cause of the majority of the calamities or evil spiritual attacks we are suffering today.
Please I wish to advice, before continuing reading this post, ensure that you have read and understand the mystery of altars because it is altars that empowers covenants, whether evil altars or godly altars.
Also, it is equally unfortunate that some are mocking God with their lifestyles, they are quick to tell you that they don’t care about spirituality or religious matters,
We don’t need to be so religious to understand spiritual matters, only that it is religion that enhances our deep understanding of spiritual matters.
For instance, occult men and women, and witches and wizards are not religious, but they understand deeper secrets of spiritual matters.
Some have no interest in spiritual matters, which is the reason they have no answers to the activities of withes and wizards, men and women gifted in occult practices.
In other words, some are terrors to the kingdom of darkness while the kingdoms of darkness are terrors to some people and as such, there are people that the devil uses as pepper soup at will.
I wish to point out that some have sold their souls to the devil and are more committed to serving the devil more than the so-called children of God are committed in serving God.
It turns out that such people, some people of God are celebrating them and even joining them to indulge in their lifestyles.
Coming back to our subject of our discussion, I wish to address people that are interested in spiritual matters. Please I wish to appeal to you, the greatest harm you can do to yourself is to leave yourself defenseless.
We leave ourselves defenseless by not understanding the mystery of altars and covenants thereof, and as such, anyone not backed by any godly altar is defenseless.
The devil and host of evil forces are sending arrows against us from evil altars, and we must stand on godly altars if we must counter their onslaught.
I wish to point out boldly that as Christians, we rise or fall in the affairs of life depending on which altars and covenants are speaking against us or for us.
Talking about covenants, please for the purpose of this post, we shall define a covenant as an agreement which brings about a relationship of commitment between God and his people or between people and the devil/deities.
The first time covenant was mentioned in the bible was in Genesis 9:9. Here, God made a covenant with Noah and his family/every living creature, “And I, behold, I establish my covenant with you, and with your seed after you”;
The same covenant was repeated on Genesis 9:11 “And I will establish my covenant with you; neither shall all flesh be cut off any more by the waters of a flood; neither shall there any more be a flood to destroy the earth”.
Also, In Genesis 17:7 God made a covenant with Abraham, “And I will establish my covenant between me and thee and thy seed after thee in their generations for an everlasting covenant, to be a God unto thee, and to thy seed after thee.
See also Genesis 17:9 And God said to Abraham: “As for you, you shall keep My covenant, you and your descendants after you throughout their generations.
Today, what the nation of Israel is enjoying is the result of God’s covenant with Abraham as seen above. Covenants are from one generation to another unless it is revoked or broken.
TOKEN OF COVENANTS: Often, every covenant goes with a token, like God’s covenant with Noah is the Rainbow as can be seen in Genesis 9:13 and 15 “I do set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a token of a covenant between me and the earth”.
And I will remember my covenant, which is between me and you and every living creature of all flesh; and the waters shall no more become a flood to destroy all flesh.
In the case with Abrahamic covenant with God, the token is circumcision. Please see Genesis 17:9-11 “And God said unto Abraham, Thou shalt keep my covenant therefore, thou, and thy seed after thee in their generations.
This is my covenant, which ye shall keep, between me and you and thy seed after thee; every man child among you shall be circumcised. And ye shall circumcise the flesh of your foreskin; and it shall be a token of the covenant betwixt me and you.
In God’s covenant relationship with Abraham, the penalty for default or disobedience to the toke of the covenant or breaking the covenant is been cut off from his people.
Please see Genesis 17:14 “And the uncircumcised man child whose flesh of his foreskin is not circumcised, that soul shall be cut off from his people; he hath broken my covenant”.
Having laid the foundation of our discourse, I don’t want to bulge you with religion jargon of covenants. What we shall go ahead is to look at how covenants have negative or positive impact on us.
In summarizing this part one, please be aware that the issues of covenants are very strong as what some people are suffering today are the result of ancient covenant.
End of part one, we shall continue our discourse in part two, so keep a date with us. Shalom!
