B. Holy Echad Marriage & the Elohim Principle
11. Elohim as Covenant
11.1 There is, however, more to love than these qualities.
11.2 Scripture is replete with the idea that true love is resident in the idea of covenant.
11.3 Yahweh is described as an Elohim of Covenant and that true love - the love which comes from Him - cannot have its fullest expression unless it is rooted in a covenant agreement with Him.
11.4 This is true today as it was anciently.
11.5 According to Scripture we abide under a New Covenant which replaces the Old (Mosaic) one, and resembles an even earlier Covenent known as the Covenant of Abraham.
11.6 There are actually many kinds of covenant in the Scriptures with the New one that we live under actually being a compound of, and including, many others.
11.7 When love is expressed through covenant it is called Covenant Love and is ranked as the highest form of love in Scripture.
11.8 It is the love that agrees to behave and act towards others in a Elohim-ordained certain way irrespective of how others behave and act towards us.
11.9 The Covenant is a contract which we enter into as believers to follow the rules set down by Yahweh for the orderly and happy running of the Universe.
11.10 When Yah'shua said: "If you love Me, keep My commandments" (Jn.14:15, NKJV) this is the kind of love He was talking about.
11.11 These commandments are contained within the Torah.
