March 1, 2021 Spirit Meat Devotional : Topic – GOD CATEGORISES US BASED ON COVENANT – Psalm 50:1-5; Exodus 6:1-5; Leviticus 26:44
Happy New Month! This month, I will be expounding the subject of the Covenant – operating in the covenant. God does not relate with men by race, He relates with men through the covenant.
The people on earth can be divided into two groups: Jews and Gentiles. If you are not in a covenant with Jehovah, you are not a Jew; you are a Gentile. But when Jesus came, He put the third group on the earth. Therefore, as far as heaven is concerned, God groups everybody into three nations on the earth:
- Gentiles: The gentiles are those that have “NO” covenant relationship with God.
- Jews: The Jews are descendants of Abraham. By birth, they inherited the covenant of God with Abraham. Till date, the covenant of God with the Jews is unarguable. They are the most dominant race in the world. They thrive anywhere they exist, even in deserts. No hostility of hell or human has been able to wipe them off despite so much hatred by the devil against them in every generation.
- Church: The Church is walking in the New Testament covenant with God, which was purchased by the blood of Jesus. Through Jesus, the born-again man has the covenant of sonship with God by which he is authorized to call God ‘Abba Father.’
Whether you are white, black, yellow, or whatever, it doesn’t make any difference. The way God looks at human beings is this: Does he have a covenant with Me? God doesn’t rate you on your colour so don’t let anyone rate you on your colour.
PRAYER: Lord, as I go through this teaching, let my consciousness and understanding of the covenant increase the more in Jesus’ name. Amen.
