2 – A Faithful Witness and Being Set Apart
5 – The Grace of God

Zechariah 2:5 (NKJV) – ‘For I,’ says the Lord, ‘will be a wall of fire all around her, and I will be the glory in her midst.”


God is a covenant-keeping God. In Deuteronomy 7:9 (NKJV), we are told, “Therefore know that the Lord your God, He is God, the faithful God who keeps covenant and mercy for a thousand generations with those who love Him and keep His commandments.” We Gentiles were branches from a wild olive tree until God grafted us in.

God also speaks to us through numbers and confirms his plans for his people. Let’s look at Deuteronomy 7:6-8 (NKJV):

6 “For you are a holy people to the Lord your God; the Lord your God has chosen you to be a people for Himself, a special treasure above all the peoples on the face of the earth. 7 The Lord did not set His love on you nor choose you because you were more in number than any other people, for you were the least of all peoples; 8 but because the Lord loves you, and because He would keep the oath which He swore to your fathers, the Lord has brought you out with a mighty hand, and redeemed you from the house of bondage, from the hand of Pharaoh, king of Egypt.

Looking at the meaning of the numbers involved in Deuteronomy 7:6-8 you can see how God keeps His covenant with you. The number seven is The Spirit of God. Seven is the number that marks where God is doing something by His Spirit apart from any other source. The number denotes His rest and where He rules over all things created. Seven is the perfection of the Spirit. God is always doing something in your life.

Now, the number six means The Flesh of Man. Without God, you are constantly walking in opposition against Him. Finally, the number eight means New Beginnings. Eight is the number God uses to illustrate resurrection. It has to do with new birth, new life, and new creation. When God preaches on redemption and makes things alive again; He likes to use the number eight in His Language.

Let me encourage you to be in covenant with God and find favor in His sight. Put God first in all things; bring the whole tithe into the storehouse and serve Him always.

Declaration: My family will be blessed for a thousand generations. I will love the Lord and serve Him with all of my possessions and all that I am.
