So then, they are no longer two but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let not man separate (Matthew 19:6).
We often hear these words spoken in a marriage ceremony, which admonishes the witnesses present that no one should attempt to separate or come between the married couple because God has joined them together. did you know that God requires the same joining between Himself and His children? Bishop Terrell L. Murphy, in these insightful messages of Covenant, reveals how the New Covenant, cut by the shed blood of Jesus on the Cross, not only joins us to God, cut through the power of love and unity also joins us to other believers and even to the nations. This joining eliminates self will and desire, and replaces it with God’s Kingdom agenda. Covenant represents God’s wisdom (understanding) and is found throughout the bible between God and the nations, His servants, and between fellow Kingdom Citizens.
Covenant requires us to embrace the leader and leadership structure that God has set over the local church; have a unified relationship with the vision and the direction of the ministry; and show genuine love by not giving up on our fellow brothers and sisters in Christ. Covenant Keepers cover the ministry and promise to support, love, serve, and be pillar protectors. Our joining together in unity forges a similar identity, perception, judgement, vision, and agenda to advance God’s Kingdom. In this series, Bishop Murphy expounds on the writings of Apostle John Tetsola whereby it is clearly articulated that true covenant that fulfills the will of the Father will manifest in a community of love and unity that cannot be broken.
