Rhapsody of Realities Daily Devotional For Saturday 5th June 2021
I ’ve often said that as Christians, we’re not in covenant with God we’re the results or children of the covenant. There’s a huge difference between being in covenant, and being the result of the covenant.
Think about it this way: when a man and woman get married, they come into a covenant when they have children, their children are the result or fruit of that covenant. You can’t say the children are in covenant with their parents only the parents have a covenant with each other. You have to understand this otherwise, you’ll never really enjoy the blessings and glory of Christianity.
So, in our theme verse, Peter, preaching to the Jews, spoke spiritually. He didn’t mean they were the children of the Prophets in the sense that they were born by the wives of the Prophets no. When he called them the children of the Prophets and of the covenant, he meant children of the promise, or the spoken Word. And that’s exactly who we are.
The Apostle Paul, in his epistle to the Galatians, writes: “For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus. And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise” (Galatians 3:27-29).
We’re as much Abraham’s seed as the Jews that Paul addressed in his epistle. The new creation is the actual spiritual seed of Abraham. We’re heirs of the promise. Romans 8:17 says, “…if children, then heirs heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ….” That’s who you are that’s your identity! Glory to God!
I’m the seed of Abraham, the result of the spoken Word I walk in my inheritance in Christ, being an heir of God and a joint-heir with Christ. I live in victory and dominion today and always, making progress from glory to glory, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
Acts 3 25
25 - You are the sons of the prophets and of the covenant which God made with our fathers, saying to Abraham, "And in your Seed shall all the kindreds of the earth be blessed."
Genesis 22 15-18
15 - And the Angel of Jehovah called to Abraham out of the heavens the second time,
16 - and said, I have sworn by Myself, says Jehovah; because you have done this thing, and have not withheld your son, your only one;
17 - that in blessing I will bless you, and in multiplying I will multiply your seed like the stars of the heavens, and as the sand which is upon the seashore. And your Seed shall possess the gate of His enemies.
18 - And in your Seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed, because you have obeyed My voice.
