PART VII. COVENANTS OF ATONEMENT, REDEMPTION AND GRACE
I:2 The Edenitic Covenants of Redemption & Grace
The Previous segment discussed the >> Life Blood Principle << Beginning with the Creation of Woman through the Covenant of Marriage and briefly other Covenants which included the Covenant of Sinai (the Law of Moses), the Covenant during the Mosaic Dispensation. There is a Mosaic Dispensation segment following so we’ll bypass discussing it here any further. In this segment we will discuss the >> Promise of Rescue and a Promise of Deliverance, << through the Covenants of Redemption and Grace which was Prophesied in the Garden of Eden, hence it is Referrred to as the Edenitic Covenant or the Covenants of Works. See more information regarding GOD and CHRIST in the Covenants >> here <<.
Gen 3:15 And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.
This began the >> Grand Design << beginning with the Two Divisions of Mankind which are divided into Two Kingdoms. >> The Kingdom of Light and the Kingdom of Darkness.<<
>> CHRIST is the Savior and Redeemer << who has Effected the >> Redemption of Mankind from the Bondage of Slavery in Sin and Death through the Promise(s) <<. This Rescue is through the Covenants of Redemption and the Covenant of Grace, Prophesied to Adam & Eve in the Garden of Eden after they had sinned and received the Sentence of Death, the Consequence of Sin.
Rom 6:23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
This was the Continuation of >> GOD’S Divine Plan << and the beginning of >> The Grand Design. <<
The Darkness of Sin >> Adam & Eve <<
Sin separated Mankind from GOD through the “Death of the Spirit” when Adam & Eve sinned. From that time on the Sentence of Death was inherited from the Progenitor of Mankind. Adam was the Representative of Mankind and when he sinned he changed the “Reality of the World”; it was changed by the >> Carnal Deception of Satan <<
It was no longer a Singular Reality (Good), but a Reality of Dualism (Good and Evil). Consequently, the entire Human Race was born without a Live Spirit; Mankind was born Dead in Sin, into the Carnal Kingdom, under the Rule of Satan, who Adam chose as his god; the god who deceives the Unbelievers by blinding their Minds, keeping them in his Power of Darkness and ignorance, being ignorant of their True Destiny and their True Identity as a Child of GOD and the True Heir of the Earth/World.
2Co 4:4 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.
Adam, through the >> Carnal Deception,<< lost our World to Satan, the devil. But whereas, Adam made an ignorant choice, because of Deception, and lost everything, CHRIST came into the World to Reclaim it; to Save it and its People; to Regain Possession; to Restore Holiness, and to Reconcile Mankind to GOD as well as >> Destroying the devil and his Evil Works << and many other things. See the >> WORKS OF CHRIST <<.
Joh 3:17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
The Liberty of Grace
It is through Mercy that GOD has bestowed HIS Effectual Sovereign Grace, a Most Beneficent Gift to the Race of Man. Grace is the application of CHRIST’S Righteousness to the Sinner/Believer and a state of Reconciliation to GOD. The Righteousness of CHRIST is Imputed to the Believer so they are Reconciled to GOD.
>> The Way, the Truth and the Life <<.
Man receives the Call to Salvation from GOD; if the Believer Responds, he is Delivered from the Bondage of Sin; is Delivered from the Power of Darkness and Converted/Regenerated; the Believer is Translated into the >> Kingdom of CHRIST << by GOD who will receive the Believer and will Bestow the Promise of the HOLY GHOST/SPIRIT; Build them up and Raise the Believer to Life on the Day of the Resurrection and the Ascension, when HE Returns to Earth as HE has Promised to HIS Disciples who >> Chose to Live in HIS Kingdom <<.
2Co 5:19 To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation.
Col 1:13 Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son:
Joh 14:2 In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.
Joh 14:3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.
Rom 5:2 By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.
Regeneration & Fruits of the HOLY GHOST/SPIRIT
In addition, Grace is Virtuous or is Religious Affection or Disposition; and as such, the Believer has a Liberal Disposition exhibiting Love; Joy; Faith; Meekness; Long-suffering; Peace; Temperance; Gentleness, and Goodness as the Fruit or Sign of >> Spiritual Regeneration << after the Sinner/Believer is >> Born Again <<.
Regeneration, through Grace and the Holy Ghost/Spirit, Alters the Heart, Mind and Soul. The Believer is no longer a Carnal Being but a Spiritual Being able to Discern Spiritual things. Regeneration Renews the Heart by a change of Affection. Regeneration changes the Heart and Affections from Natural Enmity against GOD to the Love of GOD and implants Holy Affections in the Heart. When the Heart is Regenerated the Believer Loves GOD, HIS Ways, and HIS Divine Cosmic LAW. The Believer, having the Indwelling HOLY GHOST/SPIRIT, also Desires to Please GOD.
Rom 8:3 For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh:
Rom 8:4 That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
Rom 8:5 For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit.
Rom 8:6 For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.
Rom 8:7 Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.
Fruits of The Spirit VS Spiritual Gifts
The Fruits of the Spirit should not be confused with >> Spiritual Gifts. << They are very different. >> Spiritual Gifts << are Bestowed on the Believer as a means of Edification for the individual and the Spiritual Church. The Spiritual Gifts Assist the Believer in the purpose to which they were Called by GOD.
Eph 4:6 One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.
Eph 4:7 But unto every one of us is given grace according to the measure of the gift of Christ.
Eph 4:8 Wherefore he saith, When he ascended up on high, he led captivity captive, and gave gifts unto men.
CHRIST gives >> Spiritual Gifts << to HIS People to Prepare the People of GOD for the Work of Christian Service in order to Build up the >> Body of CHRIST <<, >> the Church <<, the “First Fruits” of HIS Harvest. Believers are the Elect and the Evolving Segment of the Human Race; Individuals who are Striving for Perfection through Partaking of the Divine Nature through the HOLY GHOST/SPIRIT.
Eph 4:12 For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:
Eph 4:13 Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ:
Spiritual Fruit – Confirmation of the Holy Ghost/Spirit
The Fruits of the Spirit proceed from Divine Influence through the Believer’s Partaking of the Divine Nature via the HOLY GHOST/SPIRIT. Grace, through Regeneration Aligns the Believer’s Heart with the Heart of JESUS CHRIST and with CHRIST, the Believer Follows the Will of GOD, the FATHER which results in the Believer’s Obedience to GOD and the Highest Good.
2Pe 1:4 Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.
Gal 5:22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, Joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,
Gal 5:23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.
Through Grace, Believers are Regenerated (Born Again) and are Afforded the Truth through Spiritual Instruction, Improvement, Empowerment; and Spiritual Edification and Discernment which removes the chains of the Bondage of Sin, the Darkness of Sin, and the Ignorance of Sin. They are Created Anew and they are made Free from the Power of Darkness through the Indwelling HOLY GHOST/SPIRIT. The Word of GOD Teaches a Tree is known by its Fruit.
Mat 7:17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.
Mat 12:33 Either make the tree good, and his fruit good; or else make the tree corrupt, and his fruit corrupt: for the tree is known by his fruit.
Joh 8:32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
Eph 4:21 If so be that ye have heard him, and have been taught by him, as the truth is in Jesus:
Eph 4:22 That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts;
Eph 4:23 And be renewed in the spirit of your mind;
Eph 4:24 And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.
Eph 4:25 Wherefore putting away lying, speak every man truth with his neighbour: for we are members one of another.
Eph 4:26 Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath:
Eph 4:27 Neither give place to the devil.
Eph 4:28 Let him that stole steal no more: but rather let him labour, working with his hands the thing which is good, that he may have to give to him that needeth.
Eph 4:29 Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers.
Eph 4:30 And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption.
Eph 4:31 Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice:
Eph 4:32 And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.
The Believer is Blessed with the Qualifications of an Apostle which Empowers and Assist them with their Ministry or in the Sharing of the >> Everlasting Gospel <<
Lastly, the Believer is Blessed with the Promise of Eternal Life through GOD’S Salvation Plan of Redemption and Grace.
1Pe 1:3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,
1Pe 1:4 To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you,
1Pe 1:5 Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.
1Pe 1:6 Wherein ye greatly rejoice, though now for a season, if need be, ye are in heaviness through manifold temptations:
1Pe 1:7 That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ:
1Pe 1:8 Whom having not seen, ye love; in whom, though now ye see him not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory:
1Pe 1:9 Receiving the end of your faith, even the salvation of your souls.
1Pe 1:10 Of which salvation the prophets have enquired and searched diligently, who prophesied of the grace that should come unto you:
1Pe 1:11 Searching what, or what manner of time the Spirit of Christ which was in them did signify, when it testified beforehand the sufferings of Christ, and the glory that should follow.
1Pe 1:12 Unto whom it was revealed, that not unto themselves, but unto us they did minister the things, which are now reported unto you by them that have preached the gospel unto you with the Holy Ghost sent down from heaven; which things the angels desire to look into.
