2013 Men’s Conference Revelation 1

Being a Covenant Man

Ps Shane Baxter

Consider the cost of being a Covenant Man

  • Jesus paid the price
  • Man up
  • Suck it up and be the man

Let His kingdom come in marriages, families, churches, communities, the State

Men, we need to go to another level of Kingdom life

Joshua 1:
No one will be able to stand against you as long as you live. For I will be with you as I was with Moses. I will not FAIL YOU or ABANDON YOU.

Does your family, wife, friends have confidence:

  • that you have their back … 
  • they are safe …

The Spirit of love and commitment.

In a fallen world, we live under a Spirit of Abandonment

Men abandon people cause they are only interested in their own wellbeing.
Abandonment …

Young men

  • abandon their parents …
  • abandon their wives …
  • abandon their children …

The Spirit of the World 

  • don’t like the wife … leave
  • don’t like the church … leave
  • pastors abandon churches
  • people abandon pastors

From the family unit to the PMs office is the Spirit of abandonment …

The Labor Party abandons the Prime Minister twice

Spirit of Abandonment is part of the world … you don’t like it, you just leave …

But it is not the Spirit of Christ

Our challenge is to follow the example of Jesus:

The Heart and Spirit of Covenant

I will be with you …

When a man finds Christ and a calling and position.

Be a covenant man …

Not led by the Spirit of abandonment but of covenant …

I will not fail you …

Grab your wives … I will not fail you … I will not turn my back on them …

I will not abandon my Pastor …

Selah … think on that


Scriptural examples:

2 Samuel 15:2

I vow by The Lord and by your own life that I will go wherever my lord the King goes, no matter what happens – whether it means life or death.

Eli the Gittite … to David …

You are with the people you are meant to be with …

Jonathon’s armour bearer

1 Samuel 14:7 do what you think is best, I’m with you completely, whatever you decide.

Ruth 1:16-17
Don’t ask me to leave you and turn back. Where you go, I will go; whereever you live, I will live. Your people will be my people, and your God will be my God. Where you did, I will die, and there I will be buried. May The Lord punish me severely if I allow anything but death to seperate us.”

Men, let us make a commitment before God and man, we will be Covenant Men and not live by the Spirit of Abandonment.
