Week One Homework | Covenant 1-5 | Kay Arthur

Covenant Works 1-5

Go ahead and read the passages listed on the pages of your homework.
Here's an outline of what discovered today...

1. Moving on to Exodus we find the children of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob in bondage to the Egyptians, as God said they would be for 400 yrs.

2. Ex. 2:23-25 God remembers His covenant with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and took action.

3. Ex. 3 The burning bush appears before Moses. God told Moses he would be the deliverer of the children of Israel. They would be coming out of bondage. Isn't this exciting! God keeps His promises!

4. God made the covenant, it was unconditional. God was keeping the covenant! But we read in Ex 6:9 They did not listen to Moses. Instead of listening to God, believing God, clinging to God and His covenant promise, they were caught in the bondage of their circumstances. Sounds like so many people today doesn't it.

5. Now we move to Ex 15. They were out of Egypt and God drowned Pharaoh and his army in the sea that He had parted. Now they were on their journey to the land promised by God through covenant.

6. In Ex 19 & 20 The Israelities camped at the foot of Mt. Sinai and Moses went up on the mountan to talk with the Lord. Moses came down from the mountain with the 10 commandments. {covenant}

Read Matthew 26:26-29 NASB ... Don't miss a thing...Read it once more!

I am literally out of my chair jumping up and down as I type! I love how the NIV translates vs. 29........"I tell you, I will not drink of this fruit of the vine from now on until that day when I drink it anew with you in my Father's kingdom." I love that word ...anew, to do again in a different way. I can't wait till that day and O what a day it will be! Kay ends this day with 'Fall on your face in awe!' How fitting that statement is.

Now here are some notes that should be on your chart. Feel free to help me out by leaving a comment, It is possible that I missed something. Remember I don't have the answers from a teachers manual, I simple do my homework the same as you. :)

God and Moses

Book of covenant (Words of God)

Moses built an altar and set up tweleve stone pillars representing the twelve tribes of Israel. He offered burnt offerings and sprinkled some of the blood on the altar and the rest in bowls. Moses took the book of the covenant and read it to the people and sprinkled the blood on them and said..This is the blood of the covenant that the Lord has made with you in accordance with all these words.

God and Israel
The 10 commandments

Moses was on the mountain 40 days...go ahead and read Ex 34:29-35 how Moses had a radiant face when he came down from the mountain with the two tablets of Testimony in his hands. The Israelities seen this clearly but Moses was not aware that his face was radiant because he had spoken with the Lord. The Israelities were afraid to come near him. O girls, this is powerful truth! Isn't it still true today, because of covenant we too can display God's radiance.

God and All People
The Messiah
Messenger of the Covenant

Jesus and Disciples
Forgiveness of Sins ... Rememberance of Him...
Communion ...Drink (blood) Bread (body)

"See, I will send my messenger, who will prepare the way before me. Then suddenly the Lord you are seeking will come to his temple; the messenger of the covenant, whom you desire, will come," says the LORD Almighty. NIV

How I admire the Word of the Lord! Isn't He Amazing! The Word of the Lord runs so smoothly doesn't it? Ok, that was a long morning of study. Lots to think about and meditate on. Have a wonderfully awesome day girls. See you tonight! ~Melanie
