Abrahamic Blessing: The Promise

Blessing of Promise.

Abrahamic blessing includes being an heir to God’s promises. It includes being a covenant person. God entered a covenant with Abraham in which He made promises of eternal faithfulness. In the person of Jesus Christ, this covenant was ratified. We as priestly kings are not ordinary people we are covenant people. Though some of us who were gentiles were once afar off and strangers to the promises, we are no longer alienated from those promises. The Scriptures declare plainly, “Therefore remember that once —– you were at that time separate from Messiah, alienated from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of the promise, having no hope and without God in the world. But now in Messiah Yeshua you who were once far off are made near in the blood of Messiah.” Ephesians 2:12-13 (WMBBE). It is critical that priestly kings live, walk and work with the consciousness of the covenants of promise.

You would recall that the thing that emboldened David when confronting Goliath, was the consciousness that David was a covenant person while Goliath was uncircumcised (a “no covenant man”). The Goliaths that challenge believers and defy God are un-covenanted and so can only be defeated by people who walk in the blessings of covenant-promises. You cannot take mountains which are infested by the demonic without a faith anchored in the covenant- keeping God.

You are no longer a stranger to the covenants of promise!
