 Covenant with a man

A covenant is a sovereign pronouncement of God by which He establishes a relationship of responsibility

(1) between himself and an individual

(2) between Himself and mankind in general

(3) between Himself and a nation

(4) between Himself and a specific human family

A covenant in one category may overlap others...Covenants are normally unconditional in the sense that God obligates Himself in grace, by the unrestricted declaration, 'I will' to accomplish certain announced purposes, despite any failure on the part of the person or people with whom He covenants. The human response to the divinely announced purpose is always important, leading as it does to blessing for obedience and discipline for disobedience. But human failure is never permitted to abrogate the covenant or block its ultimate fulfillment." Quote:-C.I. Scofield

With all that said would God today make a covenant with a man today?

 Re: Covenant with a man

Ron Bailey, "Philologos" here in SI, recently wrote a book entitled "The Better Covenant". It is highly recommended for a deeper understanding of this very essential topic.
