The Covenants-Chapter 4i-The Covenant of Redemption

Let us now, for a moment, consider the promises embodied in the covenant of redemption.

Some of these promises are made exclusively to the Son, as the Messiah:-” The Lord said unto my Lord, sit thou at my right hand, until I make thy enemies thy footstool. The Lord will send the rod [the people] of thy strength out of Zion. Rule thou in the midst of thine enemies. Thy people shall be willing, in the day of thy power.” And again. “Ask of me, and I will give thee the heathen for thy inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession.” And again “His kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and his dominion is from generation to generation.” In view of these and similar declarations, an Apostle says, “God hath highly exalted him, and given him a name above every name; that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things on earth, and things under the earth; and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father”
