GOD OF THE COVENANTS
Governing Authority Between God and Man!
The key to understanding God's administration
all Creation is His Covenants. This knowledge explains the order of the
Heavens, mankind, human history, plant and animal life - all creation!
If God made it, there must be a simple pattern; and here it is...

The amazing thing about the Plan of God is the more you understand, the
simpler it gets. If God were designing a Plan for the Bible; then it
have a simple plan. Otherwise, how could anyone make heads or tails out
of a collection of scripture through the ages without an HTML outline?
If God is all-wise, omniscient, then He knew this. Therefore, this
Plan must be there. How would one know if He found it? It would
be simple; link the entire Bible together; cover all of creation, human
history, be part of scripture; and be compatible with all scripture.
This subject in Theology is called dispensationalism, which is the
of scripture according a set of defined epochs of the administration of
God. I first studied this subject from the notes of the Scofield Bible.
Since then I have seen other brilliant theologians tackle the dilemma.
They tried various categories and subcategories. If you're thinking of
running away, hang in a little longer. We all carry with us a Bible
is divided into two categories - Old and New Testament. Now, this is a
classic. The Bible itself defines an Old and a New Covenant, but the
Testament, is an incorrect translation. Our Bibles should be labeled
and New Covenants.
Then why, if the scholars are so brilliant, do they make such stupid
mistakes? But is this a stupid mistake or is it a simple choice of
No, this one is a stupid one. Why? Because the whole subject is about
- not testimony. This is not a simple choice of terms. It is a key to
the entire Bible. It is mind boggling that our understanding of the
studied book in history is so lacking. And this is the reason the truth
needs to be documented. Otherwise, the Word will never be correctly
Without a clear definition of the parts of the Bible, it is nothing
more than a data base of scriptures or a collection of articles on
subjects. The writers of the King James Bible did one good thing for
They labeled each verse with a number. Of course, they got the numbers
wrong; but, at least, we have a common numbering standard that all of
can follow. We'll stick with the verse numbering standard for now; but
the translation has to go.
The Covenants are the key the dispensationalists (I'm one too) have
overlooked. Scofield used seven dispensations because (after all) that
is the number for the completion of a category; so Scofield guessed
there must be seven dispensations. There is only one problem with this.
When God numbers something, all the numbers are important - not just
summation. The first, second, third, etc., all had to be correct also.
The Bible and its application must always be consistent in terms of
- words, colors, numbers, time, sequence. The only person who can make
everything fit perfectly is God. So when we find His truth, it's like a
prime number. It stands out.
So I have defined the Plan of God in terms of God's Covenants with
The Covenants are listed in scripture; they are correctly ordered; and
they contain the contractual obligations between God and man, which is
the purpose of scripture. This approach has many advantages: The
is simple, covers all of creation, includes all of human history, is
correct, and fulfills the criteria for experiential sanctification.
I better explain this last one.
The Word of God is alive - not a piece of literature about ancient
or brilliant observations. The Bible is applicable to the computer
as well as to the unemployed native of the bush. It is for the scholar
as well as manual laborer. It is for all mankind. Those who went to
and those who didn't. The scholar can't refute it and its content will
not be too difficult for the uneducated. The Bible is designed to be
Yet, if there is one field that is a disaster, it is the correct
of Bible Doctrine to experience - i.e. experiential sanctification.
sanctification means vindication of our faith application. Perhaps this
shouldn't be too surprising, since most people study academically
their means of application. Most people never use on the job the
they studied in school. Most people are educated beyond their
So, when someone sees "Old Testament" and "New Testament", it doesn't

And they are content in their ignorance or falsely secure in their
Ah arrogance! As Shakespeare would say, "There's the rub." We fail
apply doctrine because of our arrogance. We fail to perceive because of
our arrogance. We fail to apply because we either lack doctrine or lack
the humility to believe it. We see a list of terms under a big word
dispensations and we don't stop to think, "Does it all line up?" The
of covenants that I have given purports to line up. The numbers are
The application fits the strategy for the Bible and for human history.
A covenant has the following defining characteristics: A covenant is a
contract between two parties, and breaking a covenant may be a
of law that brings judgment.
- Covenant - a. a written agreement or promise usually under seal
two or more parties, especially for the performance of some action b.
common-law action to recover damages for breach of such a contract.
Man was created to resolve the prehistoric Angelic Conflict. When Satan
sinned and was sentenced to the Lake of Fire (eternal judgment), he
the decision. Mankind was created to prove that God was just. Adam and
the woman were created as perfect specimens of humanity and placed in a
perfect environment in the Garden of Eden. They were given a volitional
test, the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil, so they could
the choice of good or evil. After they sinned, they needed someone to
for their sins and provide salvation. The Plan of God did this by the
Jesus Christ, the perfect man, and His substitutionary spiritual death
on the cross. The Mosaic Law provided a clear definition of sin and the
necessary redemption by means of the ritual of the Tabernacle. The
sacrifice of the animal was a ritualistic symbol of the spiritual death
of the Saviour, who would be given to provide salvation for mankind.
At the right time in human history, Jesus Christ came and went to
cross to purchase our salvation. When Jesus Christ was hanging on the
God the Father poured out the sins of the world on Him and judged them.
All that separated God from man was removed through the substitutionary
spiritual death of Christ on the cross. Anyone can be saved by simply
in Jesus Christ. This is a volitional choice. Those who want salvation
can have it. Those who do not choose it will receive the consequences
evil along with Satan - i.e. condemnation to the Lake of Fire - eternal
On the cross Jesus Christ provided all the payment necessary for
to be saved. This proved that God's Plan could handle everything -
sin. Satan had been faked out. He instigated the death of Christ on the
cross not knowing that it would bring about the fulfillment of the Plan
of God in the payment for the sins of the world. The death of Christ on
the cross was a victory over Satan, the ruler of the world. The Lord
Christ died on the cross and was resurrected. After three days, he

After His resurrection, before He ascended into Heaven, the Lord
to His disciples to explain what had happened:
After the cross, human history had not been fulfilled because the
of the Millennial reign of the Messiah were still future. Further, the
King did not have a royal family because He came to His own (the Jews)
and they rejected Him (John 1:11). They crucified Him. Therefore, the
was called out to be the Royal Family for the King. So human history
to continue after the cross.
- All authority has been given to Me in Heaven and on earth. Matt.
Here is the very key to unlock the mystery of human history and the
of God in scripture. It is what He told his disciples in Matthew 28:18:
"All authority has been given to Me in Heaven and on earth." Jesus
had authority in Heaven before the cross, but after the cross, He also
had authority on earth. The devil had been the ruler of the world; but
after the cross, the authority over the world as well belonged to
He didn't kick the devil out; but He is free to give us all things
8:32), the spoils of victory.
All of human history is under the authority of the Lord Jesus
All of creation is under His authority:
So this is the key: All things are under the authority of the Lord
Christ. Periodically, through history He provides Covenants to
all creation. He writes the Covenant, gives it to a man, and those
who are alive during that era are under the Covenant. They are under
Covenant if they are willing to obey it; and if they choose to disobey
it, they will suffer the judgment. So here is the key: Jesus Christ
the Plan of God through the Covenants. He writes the contract, gives it
to us in scripture, and we must obey it or suffer the consequences.
- Colossians 1:16 For by Him all things were created, both in the
and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or
or authorities—all things have been created by Him and for Him. 17 And
He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together.
If the Covenants are the key outline of the Plan of God and human
there are far reaching ramifications. If this is really true, then all
things have to line up with them - not just scripture, but human
and all of creation. Yes, the stars have to line up, the planets have
line up, the Sun and Moon have to line up. The animal kingdom has to
up. The plants have to line up. Human life has to line up.
1. Edenic Covenant
- Gen 2:16 And the Lord God commanded the man, saying, "From any
the garden you may eat freely; 17 but from the tree of the knowledge of
good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat from it
shall surely die." (NAS)
The first man was created perfect with a body, soul, and spirit. Adam,
and later his Right Woman, were created without sin and placed in a
environment, the Garden of Eden. They were both very beautiful
of humanity as well as geniuses. They had a perfect marriage, perfect
perfect happiness. It doesn't get any better in this life.
- Number 1 - Meaning: Unity, sovereignty,
The Covenant between God and man was the tree test. There was only
way they could sin: By eating the forbidden fruit of the Tree of the
of Good and Evil. In perfection, they didn't have a conscience and
need one, since there was no need to recognize sin. They didn't have
or arrogance or any other craving of the Old Sin Nature. They had to
the forbidden fruit to sin.
When they sinned, they would suffer the consequences of violating
Covenant. When they ate of it, they would die twice - spiritually and
The original Hebrew has a doubling of the word for death, which means
"dying you shall die," i.e. "dying (spiritually), you will die
Now Satan was very crafty, and he enticed them into sin. This proves
that perfect environment is not the answer to man's problems. Anyway,
sinned and suffered the judgment for it: First, spiritual death
from God); and then physical death.
2. Adamic Covenant
- Gen 3:15 And I will put enmity Between you and the woman, And
seed and her seed; He shall bruise you on the head, And you shall
him on the heel." (NAS)
After Adam and the Woman sinned, the Lord Jesus Christ pronounced their
judgment in the form of another Covenant. From mankind would come a

the Cross, where Satan will bruise the heel of the Lord Jesus Christ
where Christ will crush Satan's head (the only way to kill a snake).
3:16 judges the woman as the bearer of children and places her under
authority of her husband.
- Number 2 - Meaning: Division, separation,
3. Noahic Covenant
8:21 - 9:17)
- Gen 9:8 Then God spoke to Noah and to his sons with him, saying,
behold, I Myself do establish My covenant with you, and with your
after you; Gen 9:17 And God said to Noah, "This is the sign of the
which I have established between Me and all flesh that is on the earth."
After Adam sinned, the human race got progressively worse. Satan knew

he attacked the human race. The fallen angels came down (Gen. 6) and
with women and produced a race of gods and goddesses. So there is some
truth to mythology. When God sent the flood, only Noah's family (8
in all) were free from genetic defect. God delivered them along with
that had not been contaminated.
- Number 3 - Meaning: The Trinity; justice
After the terrible catastrophe, which is reported in every major
God gave a Covenant to Noah and promised never to destroy all flesh. He
put a rainbow in the sky to verify this. The rainbow then becomes a
of the end of judgment. The ramification of the Noahic Covenant would
occur: Nationalism would appear. The Tower of Babel was a counterattack
upon nationalism. God destroyed it and confused the languages to
nationalism. This was the only way to insure freedom in the devil's

Jewish race but not until age 100 when he and his wife were past the

The Abrahamic Covenant provided a new race, the Jewish Race, to be
chosen people. The Covenant promised a new nation, a theocracy, and
upon Abraham and his descendants along with cursing upon their enemies.
The new race was to be set apart for a relationship with God. The race
would be special, the keepers of God's commandments, and the means
the world could be evangelized.
Additional provisions of God's covenants with Abraham included a
grant. This is usually referred to as the Palestinian Covenant. All the
land of Canaan all the way to Africa and Turkey was deeded to Abraham
his descendants. Anyone else who touches this land will be cursed per
5. Mosaic Covenant
(Ex 24:4-8; 34:27; Deut. 29:1; Heb. 9:19)
- Ex 34:27 Then the Lord said to Moses, "Write down these words,
with these words I have made a covenant with you and with Israel."
- Heb 9:19 For when every commandment had been spoken by Moses to
people according to the Law, he took the blood of the calves and the
with water and scarlet wool and hyssop, and sprinkled both the book
and all the people, 20 saying, "This is the blood of the covenant which
God commanded you."
God made a Covenant with Moses. The provisions of this Covenant are
the Law. They include:

Christ in the form of the Shekanah Glory dwelt in the Tabernacle.
1. The Commands - The Ten Commandments and more designed to protect
human freedom under the Laws of Establishment.
The Mosaic Law defined sin and prepared man for the Savior. The nation

nation was the salt of the earth that was the focal point of human
from 1440 BC until the coming of Christ. In the Mosaic Law we see the
of God in preparing human history for the coming of Christ.
2. The Social Code - The regulations for diet, medical care, and
social relationships, and agriculture.
3. The Spiritual Code - The ordinances and ritual of the
and spirituality in Israel.
During the period of the Law the Davidic Covenant was given to
This Covenant, which is listed under the New Covenant to Israel

would sit on the throne in the Millennium.

(Matt 26:26-29; 1 Tim. 2:5; Heb. 8:6; 9:15; 12:24)
- Matt 26:27 And when He had taken a cup and given thanks, He gave
them, saying, "Drink from it, all of you; 28 for this is My blood of
covenant, which is poured out for many for forgiveness of sins. 29 "But

may receive the promise of the eternal inheritance.
The New Covenant to the Church was predicted in the Last Supper before
Christ died on the cross (Matt. 26:27-29). The Royal Messiah had come
earth, but His chosen people, the Jews, had rejected Him. The Royal
died and was resurrected with a new body but He had no Royal Family.
New Covenant to the Church is all about the calling out of a Royal
of God. The New Covenant to the Church was intercalated into human
(not foretold by the Prophets of the Old Covenant (Law)), and the New
to the Church is different from the New Covenant to Israel (which is

have a Royal Family, which was required to complete Him.
In His substitutionary spiritual death on the cross, Christ as the
man was the mediator of the New Covenant to the Church. As a perfect
without sin, He was able to bear the sins of all mankind. In His
for sins, He reconciled all mankind to Himself. He satisfied all the
of the perfect justice of God due to His perfect Righteousness. In His
deity He mediated for God; and in His humanity He mediated for mankind.
He satisfied all the demands of both.
But the Royal Messiah needed a Royal Family, and the Church Age is
to fulfill that. Everyone born again in the Church Age is indwelt by
Father, Son and Holy Spirit. This one becomes a new spiritual species
never before existed in history. Christ is the head, and the Church is
the body. Every believer in the Church Age can achieve a higher
that any other time in history. The Seventh Covenant is all about every
believer being completed as well as the rest of the body, the Royal
the Bride of Christ.
- Part 1 (Evangelism) (Rev 11:2-3)
The Tribulation is the fulfillment of Daniel's 70th week - the
of the Age of Israel. Daniel foretold that there would be a week of
(7 years) left in Jewish History. Technically, the Law is operational;
but something new exists. That is why this is given as the Covenant
governs the Tribulation (in two parts). The Tribulation commences
following the Rapture of the Church, when the Church is caught up to
the Lord in the air and taken to Heaven.
- Rev 11:3 "And I will grant authority to my two witnesses, and
prophesy for twelve hundred and sixty days, clothed in sackcloth."
- Number 8 - Meaning: New birth, born
Just as 7 completes the category; 8 is the beginning of the new.
The Jews who are left behind will suddenly wake up. There will be
(Rev. 7:4) great evangelists running around; and two great prophets
Moses and Elijah) to evangelize (Rev. 11:3). They will be on national
and many will be saved. Thus, the first half of the Tribulation will be
a time of world wide revival. So the 8th Covenant, where 8 is the
for new birth, fits perfectly.
- Part 2 (Great Tribulation): Breaking the Covenant (Dan 7:25; 9:27;
12:7, 11; 13:5; Joel 2:31; Zech 14:5; Matt 24:15-26; Rev.6:12; 12:14)
- Dan 9:27 "And he will make a firm covenant with the many for one
but in the middle of the week he will put a stop to sacrifice and grain
offering; and on the wing of abominations will come one who makes
even until a complete destruction, one that is decreed, is poured out
the one who makes desolate."
- Dan 11:30 "For ships of Kittim will come against him; therefore
be disheartened, and will return and become enraged at the holy
and take action; so he will come back and show regard for those who

fortress, and do away with the regular sacrifice. And they will set up
the abomination of desolation.
In the middle of the Tribulation, the bottom falls out. The Dictator of
the Revived Roman Empire will set up a statue of himself in the Temple
in Jerusalem and demand that the Jews worship him. This is called the
of Desolation (Daniel 11:31). This Dictator (also called Antichrist)
try to get believers to come out of hiding so he can kill them. The
Jesus Christ prophesied that everyone should flee to the mountains at
time (Matt. 24:15-26). This is the time of the devil's desperation. He
realizes he has lost his appeal trial; so he tries to annihilate the

The Baptism of Fire is the judgment of unbelievers at the end of the
The whole earth is purged with fire to get it ready for the perfect
of the Millennium. The believers (Jewish and Gentile) will go through
fire into the Millennium, but the unbelievers will be burned up. Unlike
the Rapture, in this case the believers stay and the unbelievers are
off the earth. So the Baptism of Fire is the Judgment for breaking the
previous Covenant of the Tribulation. In this case, a person has only
and a half years to believe in Christ or he will be burned alive!

up in prison for 1,000 years. Even perfect environment does not solve
