God’s Covenant

Deut 7:9 Know therefore that the LORD thy God, he is God, the faithful God, which keepeth covenant and mercy with them that love him and keep his commandments to a thousand generations;

Most Bible scholars believe that Moses wrote these words as directed by Holy Spirit about 1500 BC, which would be approximate thirty five hundred years ago. If we were to assume twenty years as a generation that would mean about 170 generations ago. However many Bible scholars see 1000 as meaning forever (eternity). Regardless of our thoughts on the length of a generation, you can see that we are no where close to a 1000 generations since that revelation.

As we study God’s covenant relationship we will see that His relationship with Adam and Eve was considered a covenant. Hosea 6:7 states “As at Adam, [fn] they have broken the covenant; they were unfaithful to me there.” (niv)

Also you might be surprised that the Bible refers to the covenant revelation‎ to Noah, Abraham, Moses (Israel), David and Christ as an “Everlasting Covenant“. [Gen 9:16, Gen 17:7, Lev 24:8, 2 Sam 23:5, Hbr 13:20]
