Wherein God, being minded to show more abundantly unto the heirs of the promise the immutability of his counsel, interposed with an oath. Hebrews 6.17.

The Scriptures show us that God’s covenant is God’s promise; except that God’s promise is what He says whereas God’s covenant is further interposed with an oath. If promise is binding to God, covenant is much more binding.

To those who have been deeply taught by God’s grace and who know Him well, God’s promise and God’s covenant do not make much difference; for they know He is as faithful as He is righteous. They believe that once God has promised, it shall be done. There is no need for His promises to be put into legal form. They look upon God’s promise as being just as good as His covenant. But to those whose faith is weak, God’s covenant is quite different from His promise, in that covenant seems to guarantee the fulfillment of promise.
