Title: The Blood Covenant on Calvary or Adoption and what it really means
Post by: Clio on March 14, 2007, 03:48:27 PM
A blood covenant, so well known throughout the Middle East and the Orient altered lines of inheritance. It was deemed that parties to a blood covenant shared the same "essence, character, or spirit" but inhabited two bodies. Because of this, the tie was deemed closer than natural born siblings. In it's most solemn form, when Abba laid it out for Adam, proxy blood sufficed until the Son of the King could come and pour out His Life in ratification of the Blood Covenant.

You see, it's not the Blood that's important except as the Blood is the vehicle that contains the Divine whatever it is that gives life. The Bible is specific about this. It says in Genesis that the life is in the blood and the blood is life. That is why we are forbidden to eat blood. It's sacred. It is the vehicle which contains that which is of Abba Himself. (Gen. 9:4; Lev 17:11; Lev. 17:14; Deu 12:23)

What was important when Jesus came and ratified the Blood Covenant promised in Genesis 3:16, was the pouring out of His life, voluntarily. You see, a Blood Covenant has no meaning if it is taken, only does it bind and have validity when it is given.  Thus when Jesus tells us when we partake of His Blood and His Body, He will raise us on the last day, He can do so because we partake at that moment of His and Abba's Divine essence. (John 6:54)

The one for whom the Blood Covenant is poured out, then becomes an equal with the one whose blood stands surety for them. Therefore when Paul tells us that we are joint heirs with Jesus, he means it literally. And Abba can no more fail to support us in all the ways He support Jesus because to do so would be to deny Himself, and He cannot do that! (Romans 8:17; Gal 2:20; Gal. 4:1; Eph. 2:5; Col. 3:3; Heb. 1:2; 2 Pet 1:4)

The traditional gifts given at a Blood Covenant ceremony consist of fine clothing suitable for marriage or an adoption ceremony and armor. Jesus gives us garments suitable for a marriage, His fine robes of righteousness. Abba gives us armor. The helmet of salvation, the breastplate of righteousness, the belt of truth, the shoes of the gospel of peace, the shield of faith, and the sword of the Spirit. (Rev. 19:8; Eph 6)

We are adopted into the Family of the King of Kings and promised as a member of His Church as the Son's Covenanted Bride. (A marriage is also a Blood Covenant, but different from the adoptive, redemptive one sealed at Calvary... I can't wait to see how... Abba has not made that plain as the Marriage Feast is yet to be...)

Through the second or "new" covenant we are free from death because we are no longer members of the family of Adam, but members of the Family of the King of Kings, joint heirs with Jesus our Kinsman Redeemer. Thus as it states in Scripture we are truly free.  Free because we are dead to our carnal nature and infused with His Divine Nature from the moment we freely accept the Blood Covenant and all it means.
