There is a difference between the Covenant and the Promise God gave.
Apostle Paul was rebuking Galatians in chapter 3, that they are foolish going back. We consider ourselves for years to be Covenant people. But before you can have a covenant… let me ask you a question: what made Abraham the father of many nations – the promise or the covenant?
Promise is involved with one individual and depends on only one, but covenant depends on two individuals. If I tell my son, I will take you fishing, it depends only on me, on my integrity. He does not have to do anything. Our walk with God began with the promise. Paul basically says to Galatians,”Who bewitched you to go back to the covenant, when you started out with the promise?” Our fathers proved they could not keep the law.
