The “Abrahamic Covenant” is an eternal covenant which GOD HAS MADE WITH MAN, and is contingent on his unfailing character, and the submission and obedience of a believer. It is a promise which depicts the grand love of an almighty Father, weaving and guiding his children to the fullness of his revelation and blessings. God in his unconditional goodness and favor clearly reveals that he is at work in every aspect of his promise to make it come into fulfillment. Thus, reflecting in his promise, we also see an intangible substance embedded within the fiber of his covenant which is “faith”. Faith as stated in Hebrew 11 states “Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see. 2This is what the ancients were commended for”. In Hebrew 11:6 states “and without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.” And finally Genesis 15:6 states “Abram believed the LORD, and he credited it to him as righteousness.”

Faith was the substance that drove Abraham from Ur to Canaan, from Bethel to Negev, from Negev to Egypt, from Egypt back to Bethel and so on……. We are all considered “children of faith (Abraham)” for those who believe (Romans 10, Romans 4:16). It is my contention, and food for thought, that this unconditional Covenant is revealed and dispersible to those who believe and who are people of faith. Could this then be a condition? :))))
