The Covenants of God
The Christian religious organizations of the world mainly preach that there is the Old and New Covenant, but the Bible talks about several other covenants that God made with man. These agreements help us to understand the dealings God was having with man and the results that would occur. (present or future) A covenant is a binding agreement that is made by two or more persons or parties. God’s covenants were simple and direct.
The Holy Seventh Day of God Covenant: The seventh day of the week was made Holy at the recreation or rebirth of our world. This day was made for man, not man for this day. This agreement was for all humans, and its blessings were to be a benefit for everyone. God reintroduced the Holy Seventh Day to Israel through Moses. Exodus 31:16 states: “Therefore the children of Israel shall keep the Sabbath (Holy Seventh Day), to observe the Sabbath throughout their generations as a perpetual covenant”. God also introduced additional Holy Days (Sabbaths) throughout the year, which correlated with His festivals.
(Leviticus 23) These Sabbaths (Holy Days) gives us the opportunity to draw closer to God and to understand His plan of salvation, not only for us, but for all of mankind.
” If you turn away your foot from the Sabbath, from doing your pleasure on My Holy Day, and call the Sabbath a delight, the Holy Day of God honorable, and shall honor God, by not doing your own ways, nor finding your own pleasure, nor speaking your own words, then you shall delight yourself in God. And I will cause you to ride on the high hills of the earth, and feed you with the heritage of Jacob your father. The mouth of God has spoken”. (Isaiah 58:13-14)
” For the Son of Man (Jesus the Anointed) is Lord even of the Sabbath”(Matthew 12:8)
