Morning Message of Motivation – The Shift 14

By Rev. Robert Ampiah-Kwofi
Some things about father Abraham stretch across both the Old Covenant and the New Covenant.
Abraham, of course lived many hundreds of years before the giving of the Law through Moses.
God made a first covenant with Abraham before making another covenant with his descendants several centuries later.
Genesis 15:18 NKJV
“On the same day the Lord made a covenant with Abram, saying: To your descendants I have given this land, from the river of Egypt to the great river, the River Euphrates—”
The Abrahamic covenant required Abraham to obey every instruction God gave to him.
The first instruction was to leave his relatives and his hometown and go to a new land.
Genesis 12:1 NKJV
“Now the Lord had said to Abram: “Get out of your country, From your family And from your father’s house, To a land that I will show you.”
Then God gave Abraham some unique promises and blessings.
Genesis 12:2 NKJV
“I will make you a great nation; I will bless you And make your name great; And you shall be a blessing.”
God promised to make a great nation out of Abraham and make his name great.
He would be blessed and become a source of blessing to multitudes.
Genesis 12:3 NKJV
“I will bless those who bless you, And I will curse him who curses you; And in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.”
God promised to bless anybody who blessed Abraham and curse anybody who cursed Abraham.
No enemy could oppose Abraham successfully.
This blessing of Abraham was transferred upon his descendants through the Old Covenant.
Deuteronomy 28:7 NKJV
“The Lord will cause your enemies who rise against you to be defeated before your face; they shall come out against you one way and flee before you seven ways.”
Israel would be invincible.
Every enemy of Israel would be scattered.
May every enemy arrayed against you also be scattered.
May every attempt to curse you, backfire and fail totally.
May you win every battle, in Jesus’ name
