We’re *teaching* on the *subject* of the *Blood Covenant*.
The *Blood Covenant* is a *very important part* of the *Word* of God, even though *many don’t teach on it* *or* *know much about it*.
*Blood Covenants* are *not* something that we *practice* in the *western world*.
The *Blood Covenant has so much to do with **WHO WE ARE IN THE LORD JESUS CHRIST*.
*I) *(*2TIM 2:10* ) Says, *“Salvation is in Christ.”*
*A) **(ROM 3:24)* Says, *“Redemption is in Christ.”*
*1) **(ROM 8:1)* Says, *“There is NO CONDEMNATION to them which are IN CHRIST, who walk after the Spirit.”*
*2) **(ROM 8:39)* Says, *“NOTHING CAN SEPARATE US FROM THE LOVE OF GOD, who are IN CHRIST JESUS.”*
*3) **(2COR 2:14)* Says, *"God will ALWAYS cause us to TRIUMPH, for those who are IN CHRIST.”*
*4) **(GAL 2:4)* Says, *“We have LIBERTY IN CHRIST.”*
*5) **(EPH 1:3)* Says, *“We are BLESSED WITH EVERY SPIRITUAL BLESSING if we are IN CHRIST JESUS.”*
*6) **(EPH 2:13)* Says, *“But now IN CHRIST Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are MADE NIGH BY THE BLOOD of Jesus.”*
*B) **The blood of Christ* *has made ours* *all the things that we have in Christ* *and* *that's part of the blood covenant*.
*II) *All right we *left off last time* *talking about* *there being 3 main reasons **why someone would enter into a covenant* with another person.
*A) **1st* reason would be for *PROTECTION*.
*1) **One person* *or* one *tribe* would *take* of the *strength of another* *if* they would *enter into a covenant* together.
*2) **In the blood covenant* *you had to fight for your covenant partner*, and *even die* for them *if* it was *necessary*.
*B) *The *2nd* *reason* for *entering into a covenant* with someone would be for *BUSINESS PURPOSES*.
*1) *This would be a *guarantee* that *neither* *business associate* *would cheat the other*.
*C) *The *3rd* reason was for *LOVE*.
*1) **Love* is the* **# 1 reason* *for 2 people* *entering into a covenant* together.
*2) **Love* was the *reason* that *Jonathan and David **entered into a covenant*.
*a) **Do you remember* that I *said last time that*, *when you enter into a covenant with someone* that *all they have** **is now yours** **and** **all that you have** **is now theirs?*
*b) **That’s exactly what Jonathan and David did*.
*(i) **Jonathan* was the *heir to the throne*, *but* *because of the covenant* that they entered into, *the throne also belonged to David*.
*3) *I *also* made *mention* *last time* that *when 2 people* *entered* into *a covenant*, that *covenant never ended*.
*a) *It would *even **go on **with the descendants* of the original covenant partners, *as long as they remembered* the covenant.
*b) *In *(2 SAM 4:4)* it *says* that *Jonathan had a son*, named *Mephibosheth*, but *David didn’t know about it*.
*(i) **2 SAM 9:1-3*.
*(ii) *Then *David sent for Mephibosheth*.
*(iii) *Now look at *2 SAM 9:6–10a, 13*.
*(iv) **Why did David do this for Jonathan’s son?* *Because he was in a covenant with Jonathan **and **all his descendants.*
*c) **DEUT 5:6–10*.
*(i) *The *NIV* says, *“Unto a thousand generations.”*
*III) **In a Blood Covenant* *there are* *8 **ways or steps **to be followed* *when entering into a covenant* with someone.
*A) **In the O. T.* *people* *usually only followed **2 or 3* of these *steps*.
*Jesus actually complied with all 8* when He entered into a covenant with us.
*1) *The *1st* *step* would be to *EXCHANGE COATS or** **GARMENTS*.
*a) **This was a very important step*.
This act *symbolized **that all I have is yours **and **all that you have is mine*.
*(i) **David and Jonathan did that* and you can *read it* for your self *later* in *(1SAM 18:1–4)*.
*b) **Didn’t Jesus also do that with mankind?*
*(i) **JOHN 19: 1,23–24*.
*(ii) **But Jesus gave us more than His earthly garments*.
*(iii) **ISA 61:10*.
*2) *The *2nd* step would be to *EXCHANGE WEAPONS*.
*a) **Jonathan and David did that* (*1SAM 18:4*).
*b) **Jesus gave us a weapon*, the *sword of the Spirit* that is the *Word* of God.
*(i) *The *WEAPONS* (pleural) *of our warfare* *are not carnal* *but mighty through God to the pulling down strongholds*.
*Prayer* (*all the different kinds*), the *authority of the believer*, *praise and worship* *just to mention a few*.
*c) **This step **signifies* that *all their strength **belongs to you*.
*3) *The *3rd* step was to *EXCHANGE NAMES **in some way*.
(Take *1st* *name* *and* *use it as the last name*.)
*a) **This would give you* the *power of attorney* *to all that belonged* *to your covenant partner*.
*(i) **You* would *have* a *legal right to use that name*.
(Bill Gates)
*b) **Jesus gave us His name to use*.
*(i) *He said in (*JOHN 16:23*) *“Whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, he will give {it} you.”*
*(ii) **He also said* in (*MARK 16:17–18*) “And these signs shall follow them that believe; *In my name* shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.”
*4) *The *4th** *step in entering into a covenant *is called the **BLOOD CUTTING*.
*a) **A cut was made **on the wrists or palms* of 2 people’s hands.
They would then *Shake hands **or **mix the blood together*.
*(i) **From that point* on you became *blood brothers*.
*b) **When Jesus shed His Blood **on the cross **we began to enter into a covenant relationship **with Him*.
*(i) *But *when did Jesus’ blood **mix with ours?*
*(ii) **John 6:53–56*.
*c) **Jesus was saying* in these Vs that *If you want to have eternal life, **you must enter into a Covenant with me*.
*(i) **How do we partake of the Blood of Jesus?*
*(ii) *Look at *JOHN 6:35*.
*(iii) **Never thirst **means **having your thirst quenched*.
*(iv) **Having* our *thirst quenched **is referring to partaking of the blood of Jesus*.
*But*, according to this V, *how are we going to have the Blood of Jesus applied to our lives?*
*(v) **By believing on Him*.
*d) **When you put your faith in** the Lord **Jesus**, **you have entered into a Blood Covenant** **with Him** **and** **the very Blood of Jesus flows through your vines**, **with resurrection power*.
