Covenant and Personal Salvation
It is understood through God’s Covenant with Abram, that by the smoking oven and burning torch passing between the pieces, God was taking responsibility for both sides of the covenant. He was providing Abram and his descendants with the means to keep their side of the covenant throughout their life times.
In Exodus God institutes the sacrificial system with the giving of the law and the sacrifices. In the giving of the law and the sacrifices through Moses, He was giving man the ability and responsibility to keep the law through the sacrifices they offered. In this we see God’s responsibility for man being able to keep the requirements of the law by the sacrifices being offered, as He demonstrated in Abrams covenant.
In relation to salvation for the believer in the Church, the New Covenant spoken of by Jeremiah and again at the last supper by Jesus is seen as a continuation and logical expansion of the covenant with Abram. It is seen as God’s provision for fallen man to carry him all the way to the New Heavens and the New Earth through the sacrifice of Jesus on the cross, thus reversing the curse Satan brought about at the fall.
As it says in Joshua 23:14 (Historical Highway)
"… And you know in all your hearts and in all your souls that not one thing has failed of all the good things which Jehovah, who saves by covenant, your Creator Eloheim, spoke concerning you. All have come to pass for you and not one word of them has failed.
And exactly the same thing will be true of the believers when they stand before the Lord. He has been completely faithful to them and all that He has promised them, will be true and will come to pass. Their only part to play was simply to believe His Word and walk accordingly, and He would do the rest.
Now may God Himself guide and bless you,
