Messiahship,Covenant and Sovereignty

God is the Lord which means God is the sovereign. The remarkable fact about the covenant is that it places God on both sides of the covenant. The covenant began with an unequal relationship, God and man. But God in His grace gives us God the Son so that now there is an everlasting covenant because Christ can never break it and all that are in Christ have an eternal security because of that fact. It is a covenant of equals between the father and the son and man’s place in that covenant is still all of grace but a marvelous one.

About the author

R. J. Rushdoony

Rev. R.J. Rushdoony (1916–2001), was a leading theologian, church/state expert, and author of numerous works on the application of Biblical law to society. He started the Chalcedon Foundation in 1965. His Institutes of Biblical Law (1973) began the contemporary theonomy movement which posits the validity of Biblical law as God’s standard of obedience for all. He therefore saw God’s law as the basis of the modern Christian response to the cultural decline, one he attributed to the church’s false view of God’s law being opposed to His grace. This broad Christian response he described as “Christian Reconstruction.” He is credited with igniting the modern Christian school and homeschooling movements in the mid to late 20th century. He also traveled extensively lecturing and serving as an expert witness in numerous court cases regarding religious liberty. Many ministry and educational efforts that continue today, took their philosophical and Biblical roots from his lectures and books.
