In this frequently asked question (FAQ), we are going to answer what is God’s covenant with day and night?
But before we answer this question, let us outline the bible verse where we have this FAQ.
Bible verse about God’s covenant with day and night.
‘thus says the LORD: ‘ if you can break My covenant with the day and My covenant with the night, so that there will not be day and night in their season, then My covenant may also be broken with David My servant, so that he shall not have a son to reign on his throne, and with the Levites, the priests, My ministers. ‘as the host of heaven cannot be numbered, nor the sand of the sea measured, so will I multiply the descendants of David My servant and the Levites who minister to Me.’”(Jeremiah 33:19-22).
As we have all witnessed what God says in the bible verse above; that unless one can break the covenant He has with day and night, they cannot break the covenant He has with His people.
What is God’s covenant with day and night?
God’s covenant with day and night is that the sun will shine every day on earth; while the moon will bring forth its light every night on earth.
For years that no one can ever count, the sun and moon have not for once stop giving their light on the earth.
Imagine yourself in a dark room, and think about how the world would have been; if there were no sun and moon to light it.
Why God enter into a covenant with human beings.
David is not the only human being that was able to enter into a covenant with God; people like Abraham, Noah, etc were also partakers of God’s covenant.
And even down to the present generation, lots of human beings are unknowingly into a covenant with God.
Now what makes God to enter into a covenant with human beings is the ability of those humans to keep His laws and commandments.
For example, in Genesis chapter 12, Abraham was told by God to leave his father’s house and go to a land he is going to show him; and even without a road map, Abraham obeyed the word of God.
And because of that God entered into a covenant with him, as we can see in Genesis chapter 15.
Now David, who is used as an example in our today’s scriptural text was a man after God’s heart.
And what made him be so?
Because He was always quick to take the corrections of God.
In 2 Samuel chapter 12, we see how David repented in sack clothes after the Prophet Nathan warned pointed out his sin of killing Uriah to take his wife Bathseba.
So, therefore, any human being that is able to obey God; and also turn at His reproof, will be pleased by God to the point of entering into a covenant with Him.
No one can break God’s covenant.
The illustration or example of how long-lasting or everlasting the covenant of God is in the sun and moon; which bring about the day and night.
And we can all get the evidence in the fact that it is the same sun and moon that have been around for billions of generations we cannot even comprehend.
Putting this into God’s covenant with human beings means that that human being will live on forever, even after he passes away from this earth.
Although you will never be able to see or hear God pronouncing His covenant with you; if you endeavor to obey God’s commandment, you will attract a covenant with Him.
