#019 – Covenant Meal (Blood Covenant Pt 12) [Podcast]

We gather with our people—this company of lost prodigals now found, forgiven, made new, and crazy with joy at the thought of His love—to worship and give Him thanks. In our gathering and encouraging one another, the Spirit is present, establishing us in the reality and causing the unreality to increasingly be seen for what it is.

Covenant Meal

At the center of this worship is the meal of the covenant, where we meet with the eternal God, partake of His death-conquering life, are embraced by His love, and participate in the covenant promises. It is known by many names: the Holy Communion, the Eucharist (or the great thanksgiving), the Lord’s Supper, or the Mass.

#018 – Entering the Covenant (Blood Covenant Pt 11) [Podcast]

The covenant, above everything else, means union, the coming together of two parties to make a functional one. In the making of the old human covenants, the parties took each other’s name to indicate that they were united as one. But in the new covenant we do not merely take His name, but His Spirit actually joins us to Him and we are made truly one. But he who is joined to the Lord is one spirit with Him (1 Corinthians 6:17). The miracle of the new birth, by which we pass from the death of sin into the eternal life of the new covenant, is to be understood as our being actually joined to Christ.

Union with Christ is not to be thought of as an advanced mystical experience, a higher life reserved for the elite, but the common experience of the whole body of believers. To become a Christian is to enter into Christ and partake of His life and be His vehicle of living on earth.

#017 – The Oath of God (Blood Covenant Pt 10) [Podcast]

We have taken note that covenants in Bible times were sealed with an oath taken by both of the parties to the covenant. Their taking oaths and calling on God to be their witness was the guarantee of the covenant. In the new covenant that God makes with us, He swears by Himself; He is the guarantee both of the human and divine side that the covenant shall be made and kept.

The Oath of God

This is the absolute certainty that we have of the covenant: It is made and guaranteed by God. If the covenant had been made with us, then it would have depended upon our oath for its fulfillment and would have been broken within hours of being sworn to. But sworn to by God, it is as sure and unchangeable as God is.

#016 – SPECIAL – Jesus and the Pharisees (Blood Covenant Pt 9) [Podcast]

I have a special treat for you this week. While I was researching Chp 9 of Malcolm Smith’s Power of the Blood Covenant, I came across a RARE message Malcolm gave nearly 25 years ago! This is not available anywhere!

Jesus and the Pharisees

Jesus and the Pharisees

This is a very long message though. Just over one hour! Malcolm loves to talk!! But I think you will be blessed by it, and it really makes a lot of sense to listen to this where we are in our study on the blood covenant.
