    THE ABRAHAMIC COVENANT

    The blessings of the Abrahamic covenant embraced all that was lost in the fall of Adam.BSA 24.3

    The dominion of the earth. Genesis 1:26, 28; Micah 4:8; Genesis 12:7; 13:14-17; 17:16-18; 24:7; 26:3, 4; 28:3, 4, 13; 35:9-12; Psalm 37:11; Matthew 5:5; Romans 4:13.BSA 25.1

    It is identical with the gospel, otherwise termed the New and everlasting Covenant. Galatians 3:7, 8, 16-18, 29; Acts 26:6, 7; Hebrews 6:11-20; Romans 4:1, 11, 12, 16; Luke 19:9, 10; Galatians 4:22, 26-28.BSA 25.2

    Its basis or condition is the law of God. Comp. Genesis 26:3-5, and 1 Chronicles 16:15-17, with Deuteronomy 4:12, 13; Galatians 3:13, 14; Comp. Romans 4:11, and 2:25; 2 Corinthians 5:19, 20; Romans 8:7.BSA 25.3

    It is evident that the gospel was called the new Covenant, because it was second in order as made with the children of Israel, and it was ratified or confirmed by the blood of Christ after the Sinaitic. But it existed in promise (to Abraham) and its blessings were secured by faith before the Sinaitic covenant was made.BSA 25.4
