A Covenant Relationship With God

Be ye mindful always of his covenant; the word which he commanded to a thousand generations; Even of the covenant which he made with Abraham, and of his oath unto Isaac; And hath confirmed the same to Jacob for a law, and to Israel for an everlasting covenant, (1 Chronicles 16:15-17 KJV)


A Covenant with God is an eternal binding promise from God to man lasting forever.  God never forgets or takes lightly any promise He made.  God made a covenant with both David and Moses and confirmed them with other patriarchs in the Old Testament.  Mankind can count on every ancient promise made of God today.  

A covenant marriage relationship between man and God meant to be a binding agreement lasting forever.  God clearly set forth His commandments and precepts for marriage relationships to be between man, woman, and God.  A marriage has always been a relationship woven together between a man and a woman providing a great and sturdy foundation mingled with the supernatural power of God to bring spiritual stability in both the marriage relationship and the home.  

The truth is marriage has always consisted of a biblical relationship and based firmly upon a binding covenant of one flesh between God and a man and a woman.  

And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man. And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man. Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh. (Genesis 2:22-24 KJV)


The Genesis account of the first marriage was a godly ceremony of a relationship with God firmly planted in the center.  This first relationship was not just to be preeminent in ancient biblical times but was to be the basis for which all marriages founded throughout time on this earth.

Sadly, as this world wanes closer to the end of time and the darkness of the god of this world increases in activity the sanctity many marriage and family relationships have been wounded, hobbled, and weakened by the presence of the dark nature of the god of this world hovering in the midst of them, rather than the presence of God dwelling within them.  This speaks loudly of the darkened heart condition of many people who are living according to the god of this world rather than the Truth of God.  The devil has been hard at work in the middle of many relationships based in this world.

Marriage was always a relationship designed by God with a promise from both the man and woman to God creating a spiritual relationship triangle with God but has since been spiritually hijacked by the god of this world into creating unbiblical relationships between two men or two women standing as an abomination to the holiness and righteousness of God.

This is not our own opinion of the sanctity of marriage relationships but is based solely upon the absolute authority of God’s Word.
