As God has worked through various individuals throughout history, so He has related to human beings in different manners during different dispensations under different covenants. When God called Abram from his home, He gave Abram a promise. Later God would take that promise and seal it into an everlasting covenant while giving Abram a new name, Abraham. The consummation and consequence of the covenant of God with Abraham has profound application to the lives of believers who a part of the New covenant. The covenant must be accepted by the recipient. The covenant must be seal with a blood sacrifice. The covenant would be accompanied by a seal, or sign. We are told that Abraham believed YHWH and YHWH accounted it to him for righteousness. In this covenant with Abraham, we see the soteriological plan of God being developed further ... salvation would be by the grace of God through faith, not by works!
