Scripture: Genesis 15:9,10
God said to Abram, “’Bring Me a three-year-old heifer, a three-year-old female goat, a three-year-old ram, a turtledove, and a young pigeon.’ Then he brought all these to Him and cut them in two, down the middle, and placed each piece opposite the other; but he did not cut the birds in two.” So there they are. Abram, standing in the midst of death, in the animals he had cut in two. He knows what is coming – it is called a Blood Covenant. Why did God say, go get the animals? Because Abram asked for a cultural covenant in blood where he knew God was locked into bringing to pass what was promised. Now once they enter into this because it is a two-way street. It means God can ask Abram for anything he has and he must cough it up. Blood Covenants have eight steps to fulfillment because eight is the number to new beginnings and every time a person entered into one they were given a new beginning. Every believer who wants to renew the covenant can have a new beginning.
