Part 1 of 4. God has already given Abraham some signs to remind him of the promises of the covenant. The stars of the sky represented the promise of the multitudes of descendants Abraham would have. The sacrifice of the animals and the smoking fire pot and torch represented the promise of the land. These were proof and reminders of God’s promises. And now we come to our text today where we find that God is about to give another sign and seal of his covenant with Abraham.
