Scripture: Hebrews 6:10-20
God is just, but He is just according to the standard of covenant. Verses 13-18 explains what God did in covenant with Abraham between Genesis 15 and again in Genesis 22. This Blood Covenant is to be an anchor of our soul. It enables us to enter the Presence behind the veil, in the Holy of Holies, and do business with God on a personal basis. Jesus entered and He made the way possible, according to the order of Melchizedek. Melchizedek was a very different Priest from Aaron. Aaron was a Priest of salvation. Melchizedek was a King and a Priest. When it says, “According to the order of Melchizedek…”, it means we enter into the veil for one of two purposes – for salvation or, as a King for judgment, as the situation requires. As a New Testament Priest to the King of Kings, we are going behind to veil to obtain salvation or judgment. Both are available by covenant and both are guaranteed because Abraham obeyed God. In the New Testament, Hebrews 6 explains what God accomplished and offered to people in the Old Testament through His interaction with Abraham in Blood Covenant. Everything that God offered to Abram in the Old Covenant is now guaranteed and bought for us in the Blood of Christ in the New Testament. It is the same! Jesus guaranteed it by His own Blood. We are either in covenant or we are violating it, based on how we choose to live. Isn’t it time we chose to live according to covenant? When we do, it opens what we ask for behind the veil to come as it compliments God’s will. We can ask for deliverance for our nation. We can ask for forgiveness for members of our family. We can move forward Priestly or we can move forward Kingly. It is already bought and paid for by covenant. Sometimes God waits on us to initiate action. We are the arbitrators for covenant in the earth representing the Lord. Do we know what the covenant promises? It certainly does help to ask according to God’s will if we wait on the Holy Spirit to highlight His will!
