Scripture: Genesis 12:1-3
Genesis 12:1-3 comprised the very first Theocratic Covenant in Scripture. ‘Theo’ means God-ruling and ‘cratic’ is God-governing usually with man. God promises governmental rule to Abram if he will begin the process of yielding to Him. God said, “Abram, look – the land that I am taking you to is not your choice, it is Mine. But if you will yield to My purpose, I will make you a great nation. I will bless you and I will make your name great and you shall be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you and curse those who curse you.” This is the very first Theocratic covenant in Scripture and it forms the foundation for all the additional covenants that are layered on top of it. God initiated government with this covenant. Whether we choose to participate in government is a choice that every believer makes and once we make it, then we can enter training for representing the Judicial Christ for He is both Savior of all the Earth and Judge of all the Earth. God is the Ultimate government in the earth. And for those who represent Him, covenant relationship is the foundation for all that we pray and proclaim judicially!
