Covenants are solemn binding agreements. Pieces of property are often bound by covenants that permit or disallow certain activities. The Bible speaks of God’s Covenant. God permits and disallows certain activity in His world.
God’s Covenant has privileges. “I will make My dwelling among you, and My soul will not reject you. I will also walk among you and be your God, and you shall be My people” (Leviticus 26:11-12). Heaven fulfills this covenant. “I heard a loud voice from the throne, saying, ‘Behold, the tabernacle of God is among men, and He will dwell among them, and they shall be His people, and God Himself will be among them’” (Revelation 21:3).
God’s Covenant has requirements. Moses said to the people regarding God, “He declared to you His covenant which He commanded you to perform, that is, the Ten Commandments; and He wrote them on two tablets of stone” (Deuteronomy 4:13). God extended this covenant to His New Testament people. God promised, “I will put My law within them and on their heart I will write it; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people” (Jeremiah 31:33).
