What happens if we violate the terms of a contract? As adults we all know that if we enter a contract to rent a home, or purchase a house both parties agree to specified terms. The Renter or Buyer and the Owner or Seller are under obligation. A covenant relationship is born! If a Renter breaks his word and does not pay rent, the Owner can post an eviction notice. Likewise, a bank can post a foreclosure notice. For sure and certain we would not want to lose our home, so we obey the rules of the contract. Is it true that we ONLY BELIEVE Scroll down to the Bible Study on Jeremiah.
When we enter into a covenant relationship with God Almighty, we cannot keep on sinning and expect not to hear Him say “I never knew you.” Thank God for the cross of Christ, we are no longer obligated under the law, as we are saved by grace, however, God’s Word does keep us accountable. Protestors did try to renegotiate “Did I not heal the sick, cast our demons in Your name?” We who know the Word, know how God responded. We can always “confess our sins” and be restored. Thank God! —- Another teaching by Pastor Gary 2023 Pride Year
This is a Bible Study that convicts the heart to fear the Lord and continue to obey. Conviction is better than eviction! “Hear the words of this covenant” Jeremiah 11:2 – There are terms in every contract. Our Creator, our Owner always keeps His part, He is faithful and His word does not change. The terms of the covenant require us to keep our part. “Cursed is the one who does not obey the terms of the covenant.” Jere 11:3 – which truly means, as long as you keep your end of the covenant “You will be My people, and I will be your God.” The word “broken” translated is “parar. Parar does NOT mean to transgress against or to violate — it means “to annul: or to “nullify” which means the contract is cancelled – eviction is complete. WHAT? God must keep His word. “I will bring on them a disaster” Jere 11:11 Then God’s Word says “Although they cry out to Me, I will not listen to them.” God actually has Jeremiah report “Do not pray for this people.” Jere 11:14 While the new covenant is by grace instead of law, obedience is still a factor. After all we are His Bride

❤️ A Scripture early each day, keeps our thoughts ruminating on the JOY of our salvation. “It is my eager expectation and hope that I will not be ashamed, but that with full assurance now as always, Christ will be honored in my body, whether by life or by death.” Philippians 1:20 ESV Lord Jesus, we desire to serve and honor You with our whole life. Give us courage as You direct our steps and give us the best words to speak. AMEN
