FATHER, SON COVENANTS

Covenants: Grace, Redemption

Both the covenants of grace and redemption are strictly between God the Father and God the Son. Both covenants regard the salvation of mankind, and both covenants are far beyond our meager comprehension. Only the Bible and the Holy Spirit can give us a faint idea of this mystery.

We serve a Triune God; God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. They are indeed three distinct and separate Persons but they have the same mind, the same will, the same power, the same wisdom, the same glory and are always in agreement and harmony. This is something we cannot possibly understand, but must believe. Even though the Father sent the Son to do a special work, and will send Him again in the future, the Father and Son are ONE! John 10:30 I and my Father are one. (KJV)

There is a parallel between Adam and Christ (Rom.5:12-21). Just as Adam was the head and representative of all those who followed him (his offspring), so too was Christ Jesus the Head and representative of His people. And, just as God the Father entered into a covenant with Adam, so too did He enter into a covenant with Christ Jesus. Our fall was with Adam, our salvation is with Christ.

When one person assigns a certain work to another person, with a promise of a reward or payment at the completion of that work, that is a covenant. And, this certainly is true concerning the Father and the Son. The Father gave Jesus, His Son, a specific and very difficult work to do. He sent Jesus into the world to do this work. Since Jesus the Son and the Father are one, and always in agreement and harmony, Jesus never even thought of refusing the task. He accepted the job. It is in this, that we find the contracting parties, the promise and the condition . . . resulting in a contract or covenant!

Psalm 40:7-8 Then said I, Lo, I come: in the volume of the book it is written of me, [8] I delight to do thy will, O my God: yea, thy law is within my heart. (KJV) This Passage speaks of this covenant. Christ came to carry out God’s purpose and plan, to fulfill the work assigned to Him.

John 17:4 I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do. (KJV) Here Jesus speaks of Himself as being sent to perform a work for the Father. 1 John 4:9-10 In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him. [10] Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. (KJV) This is what true love is all about! God loved us so much that He sent His Son as a sacrifice to take away our sins, and Jesus loved us so much that He willingly came. We as humans, do not know, nor can we understand what this kind of love is! The responsibility was accepted by Jesus to complete this amazing work that the Father sent Him to do.

The Work of Christ

Jesus, the Son of God, came from Heaven, taking on the nature of mankind. The incarnation is a specific act of grace whereby Christ took our human nature into union with His Divine Person, and became Man. Christ is BOTH 100% God and 100% Man. Human attributes and actions are predicated of Him in the Old Testament, and He of whom they are predicated is God. A Divine Person was united to a human nature.

Gal. 4:4 But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law, (KJV)

1 Tim. 3:16 And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory. (KJV) The union is personal. His two natures cannot be not mixed or confused, and the union is eternal. Jesus, the Man was sinless; the only sinless Person ever to exist.

2 Cor. 5:21 For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him. (KJV)

Hebrews 4:15 For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. (KJV)

Since Jesus was a Man, He knows what we go through, He knows what we feel . . . BUT, He never sinned in any way. He never gave into temptation like we do.

Gal. 4:4 But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law, (KJV) When the exact and right time came, God sent His own Son. Jeses came as the Son of a human and virgin mother (Isaiah 7:14; Mat.1:18; Mat.1:21, 1:25; Luke 1:34-35) and lived under the Jewish Law. He was born as a Jew, and He was subject to God’s law and fulfilled it perfectly (1 Cor.1:30; 5:21).

Christ died for our sins, in our place, so we would not have to suffer the punishment we deserve. This is called substitutionary atonement.

1 Peter 2:24 Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed. (KJV)

Christ Himself carried our sins in His body to the cross, so that we might die to sin and live for righteousness. It is only by His work on the cross that we you can be healed.

Between the 6th and 9th hour, deep darkness came over all the earth. Luke 23:44 And it was about the sixth hour, and there was a darkness over all the earth until the ninth hour. (KJV) It was during this time that Jesus cried out in extreme agony. Not once in all the previous hours before He was nailed to the cross, did He ever cry out in pain.

Not once in all the hours of beatings and physical abuse did He ever cry out (Isa.53:7).

But He did at this time. Matthew 27:46 And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? that is to say, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? (KJV) Jesus was NOT questioning God; He was quoting Psalm 22:1. He felt a deep sense of anguish when He took on the sins of the world; which caused Him to be separated from His Father, for God CANNOT stand to look on sin, any sin! This was what Jesus so dreaded as He prayed to God in the garden to take the cup from Him (Mark 14:36; Mat.26:39). The Father actually turned His back on Jesus because He was loaded down with the sins of the world. The physical agony was horrible, but even worse was this time of spiritual separation from God, His Father. This was actually a double death! Jesus suffered this double death so that we would never have to experience eternal separation from God. Our loving, caring Lord Jesus gave Himself a Ransom for the whole world (1 Tim. 2:6). It is a mystery to me why people simply ignore Jesus and reject His work on the cross, when they could be assured of eternal salvation simply by believing God and accepting Jesus.

The Promises to Christ

John 1:14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth. (KJV) "The Word (Jesus)" became human, taking on an uncontaminated body, without spot or blemish (1 Pet. 1:19). Jesus is God’s only and unique Son, and knew that He would receive this Promise from God. Before Christ came, people could only know God in part. After Christ came, people could know God fully because He became visible and touchable in Christ. Christ is the perfect expression of God in human form.

Jesus would be empowered by the Holy Spirit (Luke 2:40; 4:14,18).

Genesis 3:15 And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel. (KJV)

Romans 16:20 And the God of peace shall bruise Satan under your feet shortly. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen. (KJV) Satan’s repeatedly attempted to defeat Christ during His life on Earth. "He will crush your head" foretells Satan’s defeat when Christ rose from the dead. A strike on the heel is not deadly, but a crushing blow to the head is. Satan would lose the battle and in the end be bruised beneath His Feet.

Jesus would be delivered from the power of death, and He would be exalted in Heaven at God’s right Hand. Luke 24:46 And said unto them, Thus it is written, and thus it behoved Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day: (KJV)

Acts 10:40 Him God raised up the third day, and shewed him openly; (KJV)

1 Cor. 15:4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures: (KJV)

Hebrews 1:3 Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high; (KJV)

John 15:26 But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me: (KJV) Jesus had power to send the Holy Spirit to whosoever He desired, to renew, comfort and qualify them for serving God.

All given to Him by the Father would be kept safe. John 6:39 And this is the Father's will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day. (KJV)

John 17:12 While I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy name: those that thou gavest me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition; that the scripture might be fulfilled. (KJV) (Psalm 41:9).

John 18:9 That the saying might be fulfilled, which he spake, Of them which thou gavest me have I lost none. (KJV)

A multitude whom no man can number would be made partakers of His redemption.

Rev. 7:9 After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands; (KJV)

Rev. 19:6 And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thunderings, saying, Alleluia: for the Lord God omnipotent reigneth. (KJV)
