“Gather My saints together to Me, those who have made a covenant with Me by sacrifice.” Let the heavens declare His righteousness, for God Himself is Judge. Psalm 50.5-6
This Psalm reveals the judgment of God.
Because, on the day that God begins to judge, He will call upon His saints, those who believed in His Word, not only in theory but who practiced it as well.
But what does it mean to make a covenant with sacrifices?
It is when a person surrenders a worldly and libertine life for a life that is dedicated to the obedience of the Word of God.
When you obey the Word of God, you are stamped with Divine Holiness.
He denied his life to live according to the will of God; this is, He made a covenant of sacrifices.
There is no way to enter the Kingdom of God and take possession of His blessings, beatitudes, security, prosperity, health, without sacrifice, without denying yourself the right to live in this world so that you can live in the Kingdom of God, which is the Kingdom of Justice.
Many people say, “Jesus already sacrificed for me, so I don’t have to sacrifice.” However, Jesus said:
If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself (SACRIFICE), and take up his cross daily (SACRIFICE), and follow Me (SACRIFICE). Luke 9.23
Three levels of sacrifice, meaning you have to make your sacrifice!
To live in peace with yourself and God, you must surrender sin, friends and enemies, and only live for your faith in the Lord Jesus. This is sacrifice, day after day.
… who have made a covenant with Me by sacrifice. Let the heavens declare His righteousness.
Heaven will be a witness of our righteousness, our sacrifices by faith in our Lord Jesus.
This conviction of our covenant with God is glorious!
Because we are sure of the future of our soul.
And today, our life is a reflection, a taste of what will be in the future, because we relish in the joy, peace and safety that the Holy Spirit gives us each day.
But this happens at the cost of daily, constant sacrifice, by faith and from faith to faith.
