I set My rainbow in the cloud, and it shall be for the sign of the covenant between Me and the earth. It shall be, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the rainbow shall be seen in the cloud; and I will remember My covenant which is between Me and you and every living creature of all flesh; the waters shall never again become a flood to destroy all flesh.
-Covenant in Hebrew is written as berith & it means alliance, pact, treaty, confederate, convention & treaty. A covenant presupposes two or more parties who come together to make a contract, agreeing on promises, conditions, stipulations, privileges & responsibilities.
There are different types of covenants, that is;
1. Biblical covenants between God & man e.g. Adamic (Gen 2:16-17), Noahic (Gen 9:3-15), Abrahamic (Gen 17:1-27), Mosaic (Exo 20:1-24, 24:3-8), Davidic (1 Sam 7:12-29), New covenant (Heb 8:7-13) & Eternal covenant (Heb 13:20-21). All these covenants were sealed except the Adamic covenant.
2. Biblical covenant between two or more men e.g. covenant between Abimelech & Abraham (Gen 21:22-33), Abimelech & Isaac (Gen 26:26-33), Jacob & Laban (Gen 31:44-49) etc.
3. Covenant between God & man – Stewardship (1 Cor 4:1-2), Serving God (Psa 2:11), Walking in holiness (1 Pet 1:15-16), Humility (Eph 4:10), Making peace (Heb 12:14), Love (Mark 12:30-31) etc.
-The Noahic covenant was a pact between God & Noah with a promise that God will never destroy all mankind & living creatures by way of floods again. It was sealed by the rainbow which was witnessed by Noah’s family to replace fear with faith.
