SIGNS OF THE COVENANT OF GOD
Every time God established a covenant, He gives a sign for it. For Abraham it was the sign of circumcision which was to be in their bodies. With the children of Israel it was also the sign of circumcision in their bodies, though they also had to keep the Sabbath Day.
When God made a covenant with Noah, He left a sign in the sky, and it is still there it is the sign of the rainbow [Genesis9:12-16]
Now, for us in the New Testament, it is also the sign of circumcision but different from that at the children of Israel, because ours is the circumcision of the heart – in the spirit – which is carried out by God Himself and not men. We have a new heart because the strong heart of flesh was removed when we came to Christ.
