You shall make no covenant with them nor show mercy to them. Nor shall you make marriages with them. You shall not give your daughter to their son, nor take their daughter for your son. (Deuteronomy 7:2-3)

There is a passage in Isaiah addressing the fact that certain members of God’s people decided to make a “covenant with death” (Isaiah 28:15). As Isaiah continued, through the prophet, God told His people that He would not allow this covenant to stand and that, as a result of this terrible decision, they would suffer severely. So then, God was very serious about what He told His people through Moses: Don’t make a covenant with those marked for destruction. Don’t enter into such an intimate agreement with those who seek your destruction because He will not permit it to stand.

In fact, there is a principle recorded in the Torah that says, if a woman still living in her father’s house, or if she is married and makes a vow, her father or husband (depending on the circumstance) can overrule her and not allow the vow or oath to stand (Numbers 30:3-6). So in a manner of speaking, as Father and Husband, God is determined to overrule any covenant or oath His people have made with death and destruction. Though they may suffer because of it, by not allowing it to stand, He paves the way for reconciliation and deliverance.

There was a time in our lives when we had made such an errant covenant. We had made an agreement with Hell, even though we didn’t realize it at the time, because we had determined to go our own way, or so we thought. But many of us had mothers, fathers, spouses and other loved ones petitioning Heaven on our behalf. Thankfully, our Heavenly Father did not allow that covenant with death to stand; He overruled it and we were released from that faulty agreement. We were not only released but were reconciled to the God of the Living who, through His Son, gave us eternal life. Let us then be glad that the covenant with the death has been annulled and, now, we have entered into a covenant of life everlasting.

Blessings and Shalom,
