THE SEVEN LETTERS
An overview how God dealt with mankind since creation.
There are 4 types of relationships/covenants:
1] Servanthood /Blood
The first 3 can be split into 2 sub-
A] God initiating a covenant.
B] Man responding.
That makes room for 7 covenants in the space of 4.
1A] Servanthood initiated. God on behalf of Adam
1B] Servanthood response. Noah as thanks for saving from flood.
The thanks component was the base of friendship (salt).
2A] Salt initiated. God initiated friendship with Abraham
2B] Salt response. Jacob gave birth to the founding members of Israel.
His sons was the base of the Sandal/Inheritance (of the state Israel) covenant.
3A] Sandal initiated God raised up Moses to lead his people to Israel
3B] Sandal response David defended the inheritance at all cost while guided by God.
4] Marriage Jesus came to marry Israel.
Below ‘proof’ the churches are parallel to the patriarchs. Also notice that with each patriarch the (potential) reward increases. Believers come in the 7 classes shown above. The reward increases with the class. Also see the spreadsheet.
Each church symbolically spans a millennium.
