A Covenant Keeping God

A Covenant Keeping God

The covenants and promises of God simply cannot be broken. As stated earlier, the Bible states that it would be easier for the sun to fail to shine – than for God to turn His back on His chosen, covenant people, Israel. [Jer 33:20-21]

If it were possible for God to break any of His promises to Israel, how then can any covenant – “old” or “new” be assured?

Apparently some were wondering if Paul’s new message or “gospel”, replaced God’s covenants and plans for Israel. Paul addresses this concern by asking; “What advantage then hath the Jew? or what profit is there of circumcision?” He then solidly affirms the promises of God; “Much every way: chiefly, because that unto them were committed the oracles of God.” [Rom 3:1-2]

By this we can be assured that the covenants God made with Israel were never replaced by Christianity. [Rom 3:2, 9:4, 15:8]. On that basis then we see how important Israel's restoration is - including the rebuilding of the Temple. Through these evnts, God's plan of redemption to restore Israel with the coming of Messiah - will be fulfilled.
