The AbCo was/is a promise made by God
and guaranteed by Him by the passing of his person through the gauntlet of multiple animal halves strewn in a line on the ground. The promise consisted of three parts. 1) Land, 2) Inumerable posterity 3) Blessing to all the inhabitants of the earth via that posterity.

We always should remind ourselves that if God pulls out of that promise, then we are certainly doomed, since we see the promise ultimately consumated in the new heaven and the new earth.

Being a bit tired right now, I will let that sit. Anybody disagree with that outline?

  1. Here’s a great point made recently in the AbCo sermon in our series on the covenants: in order for God to fulfill the covenant, it was necessary for God to accept the punishment for “pulling out” of the covenant (symbolized by the animal halves, realized by Jesus’ sacrifice).

    Also, there should be more than one n in Innumerable (but I would say that you should probably limit the number of n’s you use, lest they become Innnnnnnumerable)

    Otherwise, I’m with you so far!
