Covenants and promises


Bible Covenants and Promises:

Adamic Covenant. (Genesis 3:16-19).

Edenic Covenant. (Genesis 1:26-30 2:16-17.)

Noah Covenant . (Genesis 9 and 2 Peter 2:5.)

Abrahamic Covenant. (Genesis 12:1-3, Genesis 13:6).

Land Covenant. (Deuteronomy 30:1-10).

Mosaic Covenant. (Deuteronomy 11:26-28).

Davidic Covenant. (2 Samuel 7:8-16.)

New Covenant. (Jeremiah 31:31-34, Matthew 5:17.)

Some of the above covenants are mentioned in numerous other passages as well.

Below, and for your benefit, I’ve written out many of these covenants and promises. These all relate specifically to Israel, the land, the Jews, Jerusalem, and the Arab / Palestinians and their lands.

In these times it is absolutely vital to know these eternal promises and covenants, because they are all the subject of great end-time attacks by the world and much of the church – tragically.

Who needs to know these covenants?

Presidents, Prime Ministers, Kings, Queens and all in authority, as well as you and me, the man in the street, the janitor, and the riff raff...all need to know these things.

These are the major issues of the world, soon to be fought in WW111, and the greatest drama of all time, coming to a head right before our eyes. These specific issues will lead many to victory with our Lord and many to hell. You don’t believe me – wait and see!

These are the issues that will melt the hearts of many believers in love for our Lord, and turn many others into deadly, poisonous, hate-filled vipers

God’s amazing covenant promises:

Jews Arabs

Psalm 105:8-10 “He has remembered His covenant forever, the word which He commanded for a thousand generations, and the covenant which He made with Abraham, and His oath to Isaac, and confirmed it to Jacob for a statute, to Israel for an everlasting covenant, saying I will give you the land of Israel

Genesis 17:18-21 “Abraham said to God, ‘O that Ishmael (modern Arabs / Palestinians) might live before You!’ Then God: “No, Sarah your wife shall bear you a son, and you shall call his name Isaac; I will establish My covenant with him for an everlasting covenant and with his descendants after him.”

But Judah shall abide forever and Jerusalem from generation to generation.”

Daniel 7:18-22 “But the saints of the Most High shall receive the kingdom, and possess the kingdom forever, even forever and ever.”

Deuteronomy 30:3-5 “When you return the Lord your God and obey His voice with all your heart and soul, then the Lord your God will bring you back from captivity and have compassion on you, and gather you again from all the nations where the Lord your God has scattered you. If any of you are driven out to the farthest parts under heaven, from there the Lord will gather you and bring you back. Then the Lord your God will bring you to the land which your fathers possessed and you shall possess it. He will prosper you and multiply you more than your fathers.”

Isaiah 49:22-23 “Thus says the Lord God: Behold I will lift My hand in an oath to the nations (Gentiles), and set up My standard for the peoples; they shall bring your sons in their arms and your daughters shall be carried on their shoulders. Kings shall be your foster fathers, and their queens your nursing mothers; they shall bow down to you with their faces to the earth, and lick up the dust of your feet. Then you will know that I am the Lord, for they shall not be ashamed who wait for Me.”

2 Samuel 7:23-24 “Who is like Your people, like Israel, the one nation on the earth who God went to redeem for Himself as a people, to make for Himself a name and to do for you great and awesome things for your land, before Your people whom You redeemed for Yourself from Egypt and the nations and their gods.”

For I will take you from among the nations, gather you out of all countries, and bring you into your own land. The I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you shall be clean...I will put My Spirit within you and cause you to walk in My statutes.”

Jerusalem(All of it)

2 Chronicles 6:6 “I have chosen Jerusalem, that My name might be there; and I have chosen David to be over My people Israel.”

Zechariah 1:17 "My cities shall again spread out in prosperity; the Lord will again choose Jerusalem."

Zechariah 3:2 “The Lord said to Satan, ‘The Lord rebuke you Satan! The Lord who has chosen Jerusalem, rebuke you.”

Zechariah 12:2-3 “Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of drunkenness to all the surrounding peoples, when they lay siege against Judah and Jerusalem. It shall happen in that day, that I will make Jerusalem a very heavy stone for all peoples; and all who would heave it away (Lit=divide it) will surely be cut in pieces, though all nations of the earth are gathered against it.”

Psalm 132: 13 “For the Lord has chosen Zion; He has desired it for His habitation.”

Covenants for and against the Arab / Palestinians:

Genesis 17:19-21 “God said: No Sarah, your wife shall bear you a son, and you shall call his name Isaac; I will establish My covenant with him for an everlasting covenant, and with his descendants after him. As for Ishmael, I have heard you, behold I have blessed him and will make him fruitful, and will multiply him exceedingly. He shall beget twelve princes and I shall make him a great nation. BUT My covenant, I will establish with Isaac, who Sarah shall bear to you at the set time, next year.”

(Today there are 175 million Arabs in 21 Arab nations all surrounding Israel, showing God’s faithful promise to Ishmael / Esau / Arabs, as revealed in the verses above.)

Nehemiah 2:19-20 (Nehemiah comes to Jerusalem and views the wall) “But when Sanballat the horronite, Tobiah the Ammonite official and Geshem the Arab heard of it they laughed us to scorn and despised us saying, ‘What is this thing that you are doing? Will you rebel against the king?’ So I answered them and said to them, ‘The God of heaven Himself will prosper us; therefore we His servants will arise and build, but you have no heritage or memorial in Jerusalem.”

Numbers 33:50-55 Instructions for the conquest of Canaan: “Moses, speak to the children of Israel and say to them: When you have crossed the Jordan into the land of Canaan, then you shall drive out all the inhabitants of the land from before you, destroy all their engraved stones, destroy all their moulded images and demolish all their high places...but if you do not drive out the inhabitants of the land from before you, then it shall be that those who let remain, shall be irritants in your eyes and thorns in your sides, and they shall harass you in the land where you dwell.

Obadiah 1:10 “For violence (Lit-Chamac, Hamas in English) against your brother Jacob (Israel) shame shall cover you (Esau / Arab / Palestinians) and you shall be cut off forever.”

Joel 3:2 “I will gather all nations and bring them down to the valley of Jehoshaphat; I will enter into judgement with them there on account of My people, My heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations; they have also divided up My land.”

Israel’s tragic covenant with death and hell:

Isaiah 28:15 “Because you (Israel), have said, ‘We have made a covenant with death, and with Sheol (hell) we are in agreement, when the overflowing scourge passes through it will not come near us, for we have made lies our refuge, and under falsehood we have hidden ourselves.’”

Does this verse above relate to the coming tragic, peace covenant with the antichrist and many nations, which begins the tribulation period? It most certainly could. But have a look at how it ends:

Isaiah 28:18-22 “Your covenant with death will be annulled, and your agreement with hell will not stand; when the overflowing scourge passes through, then you will be trampled down by it...I have heard from the Lord God of hosts a destruction (Lit=complete end) even upon the whole earth.”

So, here we see Israel making a covenant or peace deal of some sorts in contravention to God’s own covenant promises. It brings destruction upon the whole world (tribulation period), BUT the covenant is annulled or broken, which finally ends up in God’s covenant promises to Israel, in salvation coming to pass. – What incredible drama!

Here are some more verses on Israel’s tragic, coming covenant with the descendants of the Arab / Palestinians:

Exodus 34:11-14 “Observe what I command you this day. Behold I am driving out from before you the Amorite and the Canaanite and the Hittite and the Perizzite and the Hivite  and the Jebusite. Take heed to yourself, lest you make a covenant with the inhabitants of the land where you are going, lest it be a snare in your midst. You shall destroy their altars, break their sacred pillars and cut down their wooden images, for you shall worship no other god, for the Lord, whose name is Jealous is a jealous God.”

Isaiah 24: 4-6 “The earth mourns and fades away; the world languishes and fades away. The haughty people of the earth languish. The earth is also defiled under its inhabitants, because they have transgressed the laws, changed the ordinances, broken the everlasting covenant. Therefore the curse has devoured the earth, and those who dwell in it are desolate...”

Daniel 9:27 “Then he (antichrist) shall confirm a covenant with many for one week; but in the middle of the week he shall bring an end to sacrifice and offering. And on the wings of the abomination shall be one who makes desolate...”

Why Arabs (Muslims) are the way they are:

Genesis 27:40-41 “By your sword (Esau/ Arabs) you shall live, and you shall serve your brother, and it shall come to pass when you become restless, that you shall break his yolk from your neck. So Esau hated Jacob (Israel)”

Obadiah 1:10 “For violence (Lit-Chamac, Hamas in English) against your brother Jacob (Israel) shame shall cover you and you shall be cut off forever.”

Genesis 16:12 “He (Ishmael/Arabs) shall be a wild man; his hand shall be against every man, and everyman’s hand against him. And he shall dwell in the presence of his brethren.”

Genesis 21:9-13 “Sarah saw the son of Hagar the Egyptian, whom she had borne to Abraham, scoffing. Therefore she said to Abraham, ‘Cast out this bondwoman and her son; for the son of this bondwoman (Ishmael) shall not be heir with my son, Isaac.’ And the matter was displeasing to Abraham. But God said to Abraham, ‘Do not let it be displeasing in your sight because of the lad or the bondwoman. Whatever Sarah says to you listen to her voice, for in Isaac, your seed shall be called.

Genesis 25:23 “Two nations (Esau/Arabs and Jacob/ Jews) are in your womb, two people shall be separated from your body; one shall be stronger than the other, and the older shall serve the younger.”

Genesis 25:30-34 “Esau said to Jacob, ‘please feed me with that same red stew, for I am weary.” Therefore his was called Edom (meaning red). But Jacob said, ‘Sell me your birthright today’ he sold him his birthright...Thus Esau hated (rejected) his birthright.’”

Malachi 1:4-5 “Edom (Esau/Arabs) has said, we have been impoverished, but we will return and build the desolate places.’ Thus says the Lord of hosts: ‘They may build, but I will throw down; they shall be called the Territory of Wickedness, and the people against whom the Lord will have indignation forever. And your eyes shall see, and you shall say, ‘The Lord is magnified beyond the border of Israel.’

There are very many more similar verses throughout the Bible. There is an amazing constancy among them all. You are gambling with eternity if you reject this!

Shalom – be blessed!
