So, now that we have a grasp on what defines a covenant, how representation works within three God-ordained covenant institutions, and the undeniable presence of grace – we have to ask ourselves an important question. What are the implications? What are the implications of men and women keeping covenant in history through the power of the Holy Spirit?
Are there random consequences for obedience and rebellion? Are covenant-keepers blessed over time? Or, are covenant-breakers actually rewarded with victory in history?
Can and will the Holy Spirit work through the church to visibly extend the rule of Christ, or will the church have to wait on Christ’s return for him to do what the Holy Spirit could not or would not do?
These questions help connect our covenant theology to our view of the future. We cannot separate the two. It is a package deal.
