Receive Your Covenant Promises by the Blood of Jesus

Receive Your Covenant Promises by the Blood of Jesus


KELLIE: Hello, I’m Kellie
Copeland, welcome to the Believer’s Voice of Victory.
For the past few days, my dad, Kenneth Copeland,
has been laying out the foundation so that we can
understand our covenant with God. Understand what it is
that we stand on, that firm ground, and today
he shares from the word what to do when a
contradiction to that word challenges something that your
covenant has promised you. When we get this, we are able to live
in victory. It doesn’t mean things don’t come, it doesn’t
mean hard times and challenges don’t come, but when we grasp
that we have a savior and he’s made us promises and we can
stand on those, then our life changes. You can be encouraged
and get ready for this message, that’ll change your life with
Kenneth Copeland. KENNETH: Let’s go to the
book of Hebrews. Praise God. Hebrews chapter
six, oh I tell you what, I get over into the book
of Hebrews, oh my, my, my, my. Thank you Lord Jesus. What,
a rich, rich, rich book, Hebrews chapter six. Now
we’re talking about becoming fully, fully, completely,
absolutely, fully persuaded, no wondering about it. I mean, you
get to worry, you just know it like you know, two plus two is
four. Glory to God, I mean this is just the way it is. From now,
that’s just it. Verse 12 “that you be not slothful but
followers of them who through faith and patience inherit the
promises.” Now we know what he’s referring and talking about when
he talks about promises, he’s talking about covenant-sworn
oath of God. “For when God made promise to Abraham, because he
could swear by no greater, He swore by himself, saying,
“Surely blessing I will bless the, multiplying I will multiply
thee.” And so, after he had patiently endured, he obtained
the promise. For men verily swear by the greater, with an
oath for confirmation is to them an end of all strife.” An oath,
a covenant promise of blood sworn oath is the end of the
argument. Blood is involved here. The arguments over. We’re
western-minded people, covenants are just something neighborhoods
make. Well you can’t have, your house can’t have wood and
shingles. No, we’re talking about blood here. Blood
agreements, blood of animals and the first, and the blood of God
in the second. Verse 17 “Where in God, willing more abundantly
to show under the heirs of promise, the immutability or the
unchangeableness of his counsel, confirmed it by an oath.” I have
written in my, my Bible confirmed it by a blood sworn
oath, “that by two immutable things, in which it was
impossible for God to lie, we might have a strong
consolation.” One translation says a strong inner strength,
fully persuaded, right? “Who have fled for refuge to lay hold
upon the hope that is set before us,” which hope we have as an
anchor of the mind, the will and the emotions. That’s where the
questions occur, is in the mind, they must be renewed. “Both sure
and steadfast, which entereth into that within the veil; where
the four runner for us is entered, even Jesus, made a high
priest forever after the order of Melchizedek.” Now, who was
Melchizedek? No, it wasn’t. It was not Jesus. Noah had three
sons, you know their names? Shem, Ham and Japheth, Ham and
Japheth, and God said the same thing to them that he said to
Adam, he pronounced exactly the same blessing that he did to
Adam in the garden. Ham and Japheth did exactly the same
thing that Adam did. They just blew it off and went on their
own way and really caused a lot of trouble. But Shem didn’t,
Shem according to Jewish records was, Melchizedek. Now you have
to remember, there’s only something like 10 generations
between Abraham and Adam. Oh, that stuff really starts getting
good doesn’t it? When you, when you, do some studying. Study the
Chumash and you learn these things in the Chumash. Well
anyway, so he, he blessed Abraham after the slaughter of
the Kings. Now when you know, ole Chad came down there, he and
two other Kings, I mean the largest military expeditionary
force at the time, but he tied into a covenant man, didn’t
work. Abraham armed 318 men out of his own household, 318 men,
and the blessing of the Lord taught them tactics, night
tactics. Nobody had fought at night. Remember the Army slogan;
we own the night. Well that started a long time before the
US army. It started with Abraham and his household. They owned
the night, and I mean, they took care of business. They kicked
the slats out of that bunch. I mean, they ripped into them.
Listen to what Abraham said, I mean, there’s dividing up the
spoils and, and you know, there’s one Knothead came up,
said, uh, uh, yeah, you, you, you, you keep all the, you keep
all the good goods, I’ll take the people. Abraham said, no, I
don’t want any of it. Never let it be said, any man made Abraham
rich. One translation said “no man made Abraham rich, but
almighty God. CONGREGATION: Hallelujah. KENNETH: El Shaddai
made him rich. Amen. Are you listening to me? He’s a covenant
man. Here came Shem, what did he have in his hands? The blood,
the wine and the body, the bread. See covenant has not
changed, it just changed bloods. He came with the elements of
covenant, blessed be Abraham of the most high God, possessor of
heaven and earth. He was not calling God possessor of heaven
and earth. He’s calling Abraham of God, covenant with the
possessor of heaven and earth. Since he’s God’s very covenant
brother, then he also is possessor of heaven and earth.
Start to doubt and you come over here and you see it in the book
of Romans. How did he become it? Because of faith. Heir of the
world, because of faith, a covenant faith fully persuaded.
If God said, take 300 men and go down there and do business, they
intended to do that. Amen. And that’s the kind of war where you
don’t lose anybody. Oh, hallelujah. Thank you Lord. I
said thank you Lord. CONGREGATION: Hallelujah. Thank
you Lord. KENNETH: Well Brother Copeland you know how it is, win
a few lose a few, not if you play the game right.
CONGREGATION: Amen. KENNETH: Particularly when it’s our bat
and our ball and our father is the umpire. CONGREGATION:
Hallelujah. KENNETH: We gonna win this game. We don’t play
nine inning game. We play until we win, you understand that? Oh,
glory be to Jesus, hallelujah. We’re there. Now listen to me.
Go with me now to the 15th chapter of Genesis. Oh Jesus.
Now we’ve been reading from the 17th chapter of Genesis, but now
go back to the 15th chapter and you can see now why Genesis 17
was so monumental and Abram immediately becoming Abraham.
Why this, this, this whole arrangement was so marvelous and
wonderful in his heart and in his mind. “After these things,
the word of the Lord came unto Abram in a vision saying, “fear
not Abram, I am by shield and exceeding great reward.” Abram
said, Lord God, what wilt thou give me, seeing I go childless
and the steward of my house is this Eliezer of Damascus? And
Abram said, behold to me thou has given no seed and lo one
born in my house is mine heir, and behold the word of the Lord
came unto him saying, “this shall not be thine heir, but he
that shall come forth out of thine own bounds or out of thine
own body shall be thine heir.” And he brought him forth abroad
and said, “look now toward heaven and tell the stars if
thou shall be able to number them, and he said unto him, so
shall thy seed be.” Now you know what he’s talking about when he
went into Romans and said, thou so shall thy seed be.
CONGREGATION: Hallelujah. KENNETH: Now he has a base
record. He has a, something with which to refer, to which to
refer. He’s got a base now. Stars. Oh. Wow. Whoa. Amen.
Thank you Lord. He believed in the Lord. Now he did not believe
in the Lord. Go back to Romans chapter four right where we
were. It does not say, let the Bible interpret itself. Amen.
Romans chapter four verse three, for what saith the scripture,
Abraham, doesn’t say Abraham believed in God. No. It said
Abraham believed God and it was counted unto him for
righteousness. So he believed him. He said, look at the stars.
It’s impossible. But he believed it. He can’t have children, but
he believed it because his wife is barren, but he believed it.
And he said unto him, I am the Lord that brought the out of Ur
of the Chaldeans to give thee this land to inherited. And he
said, Lord God, whereby shall I know that I shall inherit it?
And he said unto him, take me a heifer of three years old, a
goat of three years old, a ram of three years old, and a turtle
dove and a young pigeon. He took unto him all these and divided
them in the midst. Now that means this is the ancient way of
cutting the Hebrew covenant and it became the way of covenant in
many, many peoples thereafter they divided, they cut it down
the spine all the way, dropped the two halves, creating with
the different animals end to end. Let me do it this way.
Creating just room enough to walk in that blood. Now look at
it again. A heifer three years old, a goat three years old, a
ram three years old, three animals creating a blood
walkway. Now, the ancient way of walking in that blood was to
walk a figure eight which is today a figure eight on its side
is the sign of infinity. This covenant is for ever, God said a
thousand generations. Yeah, it’s shouting time in the house of
the Lord. He took uno him all these divided them in the midst,
laid each piece one against the other another, but the birds
divided he not and when the fowls came down on the
carcasses, Abraham drove them away. Now when you’re believing
God and you’re standing and you’re saying, I have a covenant
with God and here comes the devil, ah, you don’t think
you’re going to get anything. I’ll tell you the fowler is
there to run him out. Stand guard over that covenant. God’s
not going to run him off. The almighty God does not have
authority in the earth to do anything about the devil. He’s
already done something about the devil. A man defeated him in
hell itself and took his keys away from him and brought him to
know it, Oh God, get the devil off. The apostle Paul tried that
three different times and it didn’t work. He said, my grace
is sufficient. You get him off. I taught you the authority of
the believer. Now you get him off. And he did. Later he said,
I’ve been delivered them all these things, so now let’s
continue with it. When the sun was coming down, a deep sleep
fell upon Abram, and lo a hallow of great darkness fell upon him.
And he said unto Abraham, no of surety that thy seed shall be a
stranger in a land that is not theirs and shall serve them, and
they shall afflict them 400 years and also that nation whom
they shall serve will I judge. And afterward they shall come
out with great substance. Thou shall go to thy fathers’ in
peace. Thou shall be buried in a good old age. Stop right there.
Now, Isaac was born. He said, he considered not his body now
dead. Isaac was born at a hundred years old. He considered
not his body now dead, neither the deadness of Sarah’s womb,
but only the covenant, not the contradiction. Now listen to
this. The sun was going down. A deep sleep fell upon Abram, lo
and hallow and darkness. Come down the 15th verse, thou shall
go to thy father’s in peace, thou shall be buried in a good
old age at 175. But in the fourth generation, they should
come hither again for the iniquity of the Amorites is not
yet full and it came to pass when the sun went down, it was
dark. Behold, look, a smoking furness and a burning lamp, a
lamp of fire that passed between those pieces and the same day
the Lord made a covenant with Abraham saying, unto thy seed,
have I given this land from the river of Egypt under the great
river, the river Euphrates. I am totally, absolutely convinced
because of what it says in Hebrews because of what it says
in the book of Romans. He was completely, totally persuaded,
completely persuaded, and this is when that persuasion began.
Glory to God. I am totally convinced while he is watching a
burning, does that remind you of a pillar of fire by day and a
pillar of cloud or smoke? I mean fire at night and that pillar of
cloud, the pillars smoke, it’s called cloud in someplace it’s
called smoke in others. It’s the glory. It’s the glory, it’s the
glory. And I’m completely convinced he saw God’s
footprint in that blood. ANNOUNCER: We hope you enjoyed
today’s teaching from Kenneth Copeland Ministries, and
remember Jesus is Lord.
