covenant and promise

Yesterday's post on the form of a Biblical covenant has a lot in common with a Biblical promise in the New Testament.

The promises are given unconditionally by a sovereign to his subjects.

The mediator of the promises is the Holy Spirit.

The promises have blessings contingent on the believer's faith or acceptance.

The curse for unbelief is not receiving the promised results.

The sacrifice was Jesus' death.

The sign is Love.
