There are times of utter darkness when the Holy Spirit will illuminate only one thing, the emblems of the sacrifice, because that is all we need to see.
The sacrifice is the emblem of the covenant
The covenant is Gods final, irrevocable commitment
Man may pass through times when all he can see is the one fact that Jesus died for his sins. That will be all he needs to know. Everything is included in that.
"He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how will He not also with Him freely give us all things?" Romans 8:32
There are times when that is all you can hold onto.
It is the covenant made in the sacrificial death of the Lord Jesus Christ.
That is how the Lord and Abram entered into covenant. Isnt it amazing that Almighty God would choose to do that for man? It staggers my mind that God would leave heaven and come to earth to pass between those pieces of slain animals to make His commitment to Abram. I am amazed to realize that God would go to such lengths to make His personal commitment to me.
