An Historical Defense Of Covenanting And The Solemn League And
Covenant # 11

Zechariah 2:11
March 22, 2009
Rev. Greg L. Price

We come to the conclusion of our present series in defending national
covenanting and in defending in particular the descending obligation of
the Solemn League and Covenant to all posterity (whether familial,
ecclesiastical or national). Today we will consider a concluding objection
and some concluding questions. But first, let us turn to our text from the
inspired pages of Holy Scripture.

l. A Most Glorious Time Of Worldwide National Covenanting Is Coming
To Planet Earth (Zechariah 2:11).

A. The Historical Context.
1. The meaning of the name “Zechariah” is God

remembers—God remembers the Covenant with His people. People may
forget that Covenant, may ignore and neglect that Covenant, may despise
and hate that Covenant, but God always remembers the Covenant made
with His people and the Covenant they have made with Him. The
meaning of Zechariah’s name (God remembers) bears directly upon the
theme that we find in this prophecy which should cause the heart of
every Christian to leap for joy; for the only reason we are not destroyed
for our many violations of Covenant with God is because we have settled
our case once and for all upon the perfect Covenant-keeping of Christ
rather than upon our own Covenant-breaking (Titus 3:5-7). In judicially
forgiving us all our sin when we trust alone in Christ as our only hope of
eternal salvation, the Lord remembers the Covenant-keeping of Christ in
fulfilling all righteousness for us and remembers not our many Covenant
violations against us any longer.

2. As Zechariah begins this prophecy, God’s people have
been delivered from captivity by the decree of Cyrus (Ezra 1:1) and have
returned to the land promised to them by God. The first building project
initiated in Jerusalem was to rebuild the Temple that had been destroyed
by the Babylonians. God’s people made a great start in laying the
foundation of the Temple and building the brazen altar under the
leadership of Ezra, Zerubbabel, and Joshua the High Priest, but soon
found their hearts pulled away from the primary work of building the
Kingdom of God to the secondary work of building their own kingdoms
(as they increasingly used their time and resources to focus primarily on
building bigger and more comfortable homes). The House of God lay in
ruins, the ordinances of the Church were incomplete, and the people of
God fell into apathy and indifference.

a. Some fell into apathy due to the small beginnings in
laying the foundation of the Temple that was once one of the greatest
wonders of the world at that time. Why try to rebuild the Temple when it
will never look like the glorious Temple that Solomon built?

b. Others fell into apathy because those who returned
to Judah were ruled by the Persian Kings who could stop the Temple
building project (and this did happen for a period of time) just as easily as
Cyrus had commanded the Temple to be built. Why try to rebuild the
Temple when we are ruled by a government that may snatch away in a
moment all the labor we employ in seeking to rebuild the Temple?

c. Others fell into apathy because there were enemies
like the Samaritans who had perverted the true worship of God and
outnumbered the Israelites who sought to worship the Lord God in spirit
and in truth. Why try to rebuild the Temple when we are comparatively
such a small remnant of people in comparison to all of our enemies
around us?

d. Others fell into apathy because the things of this
world, their own homes, their own kingdoms, their own dreams, and
their own desires for the things of this world were far greater than their

love and desire for the faithful ordinances of God and the promotion of
the Kingdom of God in rebuilding the Temple at that time. Why should
we worry about rebuilding the Temple at this time when we have so
many other things on our mind? There will be plenty of time later to
rebuild the Temple when we have completed the projects at home that
are taking so much of our time.

e. The people of God said (according to Haggai 1:2):
“The time is not come, the time that the LORD’S house should be built.” It
was inconvenient, time consuming, and required sacrifice to rebuild the
Temple. It was not comfortable and there were so many obstacles to
overcome. So they said, “Why try to rebuild the temple at this time? Let’s
wait until a better time when it’s not so difficult.”

f. The excuses offered by God’s covenant people at the
time of Zechariah remind us of the excuses we have offered or have
heard others offer so often as to why it is not the right time to pray for
and invest our time and resources into rebuilding the Temple and Church
of Jesus Christ that has fallen into such a state of disrepair that the
Ordinances of Christ are few and are not administered purely by so many
and the faithful Ministers who will stand for the truth of Christ before
friend or foe are so few. Dear ones, let us not be like those who made
excuses as to why the rebuilding of God’s Church could not move
forward, but rather let us put away all excuses and press forward in this
day of small beginnings knowing that it is “not by might, nor by power,
but by my Spirit, saith the LORD of hosts” (Zechariah 4:6).

3. Dear ones, this is the historical situation in which
Zechariah is called to prophesy that God remembers His Covenant with
His people and that none of the excuses the people have raised have
merit in light of the Covenant obligations that they owe to the Lord who
has redeemed them and in light of the Covenant faithfulness of God to
save them and deliver them from all their enemies.

4. Through the faithful preaching and prophesying of Haggai
and Zechariah (two contemporary prophets in Judah at this time

according to Ezra 5:1) and through the faithful service of the magistrate
(Zerubbabel) and through the faithful ministry of the High Priest (Joshua),
the Lord caused His people to cast aside all of their vain excuses for why
they could not devote themselves to rebuilding His Kingdom and caused
them rather to renew their National Covenant with the Lord on two
different occasions (Ezra 10:3; Nehemiah 9:38). As a result the temple
was rebuilt and completed with great rejoicing and praise to God for His
faithfulness to them in remembering His Covenant (Ezra 6:14-15,20-21).

B. The National Covenant of Israel (Zechariah 2:10,11b,12).
1. In order to encourage the returned captives, the Lord

reminds His people Israel that there is coming a time of much greater
rejoicing in the future for Israel in which the blessings of the Lord will
extend to them to such a far greater degree. The time of rejoicing that
occurred when the Temple was rebuilt in the time of Zechariah will be
only a foretaste of the much greater rejoicing that shall be theirs when
God will supernaturally draw many Gentile Nations into covenant with
Him. For this time of future unparalleled blessing promised to Israel will
occur according to Zechariah 2:11 “in that day.” In what day? “In that
day” when “many nations shall be joined to the Lord” and “shall be my
people” declares Jehovah God. We will look more closely at the Gentile
Nations in a moment, but understand at this point that Zechariah has
moved forward in prophetic time to a future day of great spiritual
blessing to come upon Israel as Jehovah will again remember His
Covenant with His people and draw them unto Himself even after they
had rejected, hated and pressed the Roman Governor to crucify their
Messiah, Jesus Christ, God’s only begotten Son. Even after thousands of
years of rejecting God’s Covenant, God remembers His Covenant with
them (“For this is my covenant unto them, when I shall take away their
sins” Romans 11:27). We will have more to say about this passage in a
future sermon.

2. This period of time of God’s unparalleled blessing upon
Israel to which Zechariah prophetically points has not yet occurred for we
have never witnessed both Israel as a Nation in covenantal union with
Jehovah at the same time that “many Nations” are joined by way of
National Covenants to the Lord to become God’s people. Thus, the time
in which these prophecies are to be fulfilled yet awaits us in that glorious
millennial period of time of worldwide reformation as Christ reigns from
heaven and pours out His Spirit upon the Nations of this world to a
degree that we have not yet witnessed.

3. The presence of the Lord in coming and dwelling in the
midst of Israel that is mentioned here in Zechariah 2:10,11 does not refer
to the bodily coming of Christ to the earth during the future millennial
period anymore than the Lord’s presence in coming and walking in the
midst of Israel at the time of Moses referred to the bodily coming of
Jehovah (Exodus 20:24; Leviticus 26:11-12). For God comes to His New
Testament Church and dwells in their midst, not bodily but spiritually and
covenantally (2 Corinthians 6:16), and the Lord Jesus comes to the Seven
Churches of Asia and walks in their midst, not bodily but spiritually and
covenantally (Revelation 1:13), and likewise in our midst spiritually and
covenantally as those Churches represent the Church visible and
universal (Revelation 2:1). This prophecy in Zechariah 2 foretells the
Covenant renewal of Israel with her God as is clear from verse 12 where
clear covenantal language is used (as we likewise see in Isaiah 19:24-25).

C. The National Covenant of Many Gentile Nations (Zechariah
2:11a).

1. We have considered briefly the prophesied time of
Covenant blessings to be brought upon Israel, now let us consider the
prophesied time of Covenant blessings to be brought upon Gentile
Nations. Note carefully here what we find likewise in Romans 11 (and
many other places in Scripture) that when Israel as a Nation is recalled to
her Covenant with God, likewise many Gentile Nations will have been and

will be brought into National Covenants with God (Romans 11:25-27;
Isaiah 19:24-25). This is what Zechariah here prophesies as well.

2. Notice the covenantal language used in regard to the
Gentile Nations by Zechariah in Zechariah 2:11.

a. “Shall be joined to the LORD.” How is an entire Nation
and its national representatives joined to the Lord? A Gentile Nation is
joined to the Lord in the same way that Israel is joined to the Lord i.e. by
way of a National Covenant (Jeremiah 50:5—the same Hebrew word for
“join” that is used in Zechariah 2:11 in the case of Gentile Nations is also

used here in Jeremiah 50:5, ‫) ָל ָוה‬. If for Israel and Judah to be joined to

the Lord is to be joined in a perpetual and everlasting National Covenant
to the God of their salvation, then likewise for the many Nations here
mentioned (in Zechariah 2:11), it is for them to be joined in a perpetual
and everlasting National Covenant to the God of their salvation.

b. “Shall be my people.” There is not a more clear
expression of covenantal union between God and a people than this
language where we find it used often of God’s covenantal relationship
with Israel (Leviticus 26:9-12). And yet that same covenantal language is
used here in reference to God’s Covenant with Gentile Nations by way of
National Covenants (see also Isaiah 19:25 where Egypt as a Nation will
covenant with God, and God shall say of Egypt as a Nation at that future
time, “Blessed be Egypt my people”).

3. Finally, carefully observe that in that millennial worldwide
reformation a National Covenant shall not only exist between God and
Israel or only between God and Egypt, but rather will exist between God
and “many Nations” (according to Zechariah 2:11; Isaiah 2:1-4; Psalm
72:8-14). Dear ones, we have the exciting prospect that what we
presently see by way of much Covenant-breaking in this nation will not
long continue, but this Nation will (in the near future we pray) be turned
by God’s almighty power and by the outpouring of His Spirit upon us into
a Nation which owns the Solemn League and Covenant of their
forefathers. Just as God gave this prophecy of national covenant renewal

to Israel of old in Zechariah 2 in order to encourage them to rebuild the
Temple that had fallen, so the Lord encourages us today by this prophecy
of National Covenant renewal among the Gentile Nations which is to
come in order to encourage us to work in faith and hope in rebuilding the
Church that has fallen, casting aside all excuses we might use to delay the
work of building God’s Kingdom (beginning in our own families in times of
family worship and times of corporate worship with God’s people).

ll. One Objection. “There are no Reformed Church Courts in the United
States that have owned the Solemn League and Covenant as “our
Covenant”, thereby showing that the Solemn League and Covenant was
viewed as merely an example to be followed in covenanting, but not a
Covenant that by way of descending obligation bound families, Church or
Nation in the United States.” Let’s consider what both Church Courts in
the United States and Ministers in the United States have said about the
Solemn League and Covenant being “our covenant” and binding the
posterity in the United States.

A. First, the Reformed Presbyterian Church of North America.
1. In 1807, the Reformed Presbyterian Church of North

America (RPCNA) adopted as a Term of Communion the following
testimony to that Church’s belief in the descending obligation of the
Solemn League and Covenant to those in the United States:

and that the obligation of these covenants extends to those, who were represented in the
taking of them, although removed to this or any other part of the world, insofar as they bind to
duties not peculiar to the church in the British Isles, but applicable in all lands.

2. In 1839, the Reformed Presbyterian Church of North
America (RPCNA) published a document in overture entitled “Testimony
For Public Covenanting” in which the descending obligation of the
Solemn League and Covenant to them in the United States is stated in
these words:

The Solemn League and Covenant was one vow in which the members of the church and
citizens of the state were bound inseparably, though distinctly; and whom any principle of the
covenant binds, the whole binds; because it cannot be divided. "What God hath joined
together, let no man put asunder."

As God is one party, the Covenanter who emigrates, is after emigration, still within the
dominions of him "who is King of Kings and Lord of Lords." Those who have come into the
United States, since the taking of the covenants, are as really under the kingly authority of
Christ, as they were in Great Britain; for he is "the Lord of the whole earth."

The colonies, at the time of entering into the Solemn League and Covenant, were an integral
part of the British nation. They held their lands under the crown, and were governed by
deputies of the throne, whom they acknowledged as their governors.

The old Congress of 1774, solemnly claimed for themselves, and for the people of the colonies
whom they represented "all the rights and immunities of British Citizens." (See Marshall’s Life
of Washington.) The most excellent part of their birthright and immunities, was, that they
inherited a title to the covenant blessings of their ancestors, who entered into federal
relations with the God of Israel. It may be said in reply to this, that they did not intend to claim
the covenant birthright. It is admitted that they did not, and that in doing, so, they committed
a great sin. Men often do things, when they do not understand their own transactions, as the
Assyrian king fulfilled the counsel of the Lord, although "he meant not so, nor did his heart
think so." Isa. 10:7.

B. Second, the Associate Synod of North America likewise testified
of the descending obligation of the Solemn League and Covenant to
themselves though living in the United States in a document entitled, A
Display of the Religious Principles of the Associate Synod of North
America, Revised in 1813, pp. 220,223.

To allege that those who adhere to the Solemn League in a suitableness to our circumstances,
in these United States, are bound to the king and parliament of Great Britain, is as ridiculous as
to say, that because we adhere to the Old Testament, therefore we are bound to the
ceremonial law.

So we acknowledge these engagements [i.e. the National Covenant and the Solemn League and
Covenant] still binding upon us.

C. Third, the Reformed Presbytery in the United States likewise
testified of the descending obligation of the Solemn League and
Covenant to themselves though living in the United States.

1. A Short Vindication Of Our Covenanted Reformation, 1879.

Also, our Covenants, National and Solemn League, may and ought to be renewed—not that
they have become old, as many say; but that they are to be owned as obligatory upon us, and a
sense of their permanent obligation deepened upon our own souls, and exhibited to others by
the solemnity of an oath.

2. Minutes Of The Reformed Presbytery, June 1st, 1887.

And, finally, we can never be sufficiently thankful to God for permitting and honoring us as a
Presbytery, unitedly and publicly, with our hands lifted toward heaven, to pledge anew
adherence to our Covenants, National and Solemn League at North Union, Butler Co., Pa.,
1881.

D. Rev. Alexander Craighead renewed the National Covenant and
Solemn League and Covenant as a remnant of faithful Covenanters in
Middle Octorara, Pennsylvania (November 11, 1743) making it clear that
they did not cease to be bound though now living in the his Majesty’s
dominion in North America (Renewal Of The Covenants, p. 12).

And thus our holy Covenants, National and Solemn League, discover themselves to be
perpetual and of constant obligation upon this Realm [the Realm of the British Colonies as the
posterity of Britain—GLP].

One of Craighead’s first actions in his new association was to lead the American Covenanters in
a renewal of the covenants on November 11, 1743. This service was a tangible expression of
their belief that the obligation of the covenants rested on them in America as it had on their
ancestors in Scotland…. By 1743, few people, even in Scotland, took this covenant seriously.
But the society people continued to believe that the promise in the covenants, made as it was to
God as well as to men, was binding on the continuing church and state. This they termed the
“descending obligation of the covenants.” They carried this belief in the “descending obligation”
of the covenants with them across the Atlantic to the colonies (David Melville Carson, A History
Of The Reformed Presbyterian Church In America To 1871 [A Doctoral Dissertation], 1964, pp.
27-28).
.

E. Rev. James R. Wilson, DD, was Professor of Systematic Theology
at the Seminary for the Reformed Presbyterian Church of North America
(RPCNA). In a lecture he delivered (November 7, 1848) at the Reformed
Presbyterian Theological Seminary (and which was subsequently
published), Mr. Wilson clearly owns the Solemn League and Covenant as
binding upon those living in the United States.

“That our ancestors who first settled these colonies, were, at the time of their emigration from the
mother country, entitled to all the rights, liberties and immunities of free and natural born
subjects, within the realm.” This claim is reiterated in their petition to the crown, in their state
papers and is embodied in the Declaration of Independence, which was responded to by two and
a half millions of people with acclamation. The best of these immunities were these secured by
the great national charter, granted us by the Church’s Head—the Solemn League and Covenant.
We have always recognized the covenants of our godly British ancestry as binding on us and on
our seed forever.

lll. Two Questions.

A. Question #1. Do civil rulers have the lawful authority to bind
people to extra-biblical practices that are not inherently unlawful?

1. Lawful covenants may include matters that are not
explicitly mentioned in the Scripture such as the binding National
Covenant between the Gibeonites and the Israelites (Joshua 9) and the
brotherly National Covenant between Tyre and Israel (Amos 1:9).

2. Such a National Covenant must be agreeable to the Word
of God even if a specific term is not explicitly found in the Word of God.
All such extra-biblical terms in a lawful National Covenant must also
promote the moral good (as again agreeable to the Word of God) of the
Church and Nation and not the moral decline and falling away of the
Church or Nation from God.

3. Such a National Covenant must not deal in matters trivial
wherein the matter of a Covenant simply becomes you will jump when I,
the magistrate, say you should jump and as many times as I tell you to
jump (even though jumping is not expressly forbidden by the Word of
God). To this effect Samuel Rutherford comments in regard to the
Church, but the same thing may be said in regard to the State as well.

No wise man would say that the Church might make a law, that all [people-GLP] should cast
stones in the water.... for what actions have no good, nor lawfulness, nor aptitude to edify in
themselves, these the [mere-GLP] will of man can never make good, lawful, and apt to edify,
because only God, whose will is the prime rule of all goodness can create moral goodness in
actions... Hence it follows that all actions and circumstances of their nature indifferent, must
lose that indifferency, and receive from God some goodness, and aptness to edify, before they
can be the reasonable and nearest matter of any civil or ecclesiastical constitution; because
what rulers can in law and reason command, that they must will as good and apt to edify,

before they can bind others to will it. For a thing indifferent, as it is such, is neither good nor
evil, and the object of the will is always [to be—GLP] good. Rulers command as God’s ministers
for our good, Romans 13:4 (The Divine Right Of Church Government And Excommunication, p.
648).

B. Question #2. Is a Covenant still binding upon the moral person
that has in it not only that which is lawful, but also that which is
unlawful?

1. If we view the Covenant as a whole, then we cannot keep
a Covenant that has in it that which is unlawful and contrary to the Word
of God (“Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain”
Exodus 20:7).

2. However, if the view the Covenant from the perspective of
that which is lawful in the Covenant that we have taken (it being
agreeable to God’s Moral Law), rather than casting away even the lawful
part of the Covenant, it would perhaps be better to restructure the
Covenant we took by disavowing that which was unlawful and only
including in it that which is lawful. This would seem a better approach to
honoring Covenants we took in sincerity, yet in ignorance of some
revealed truth.

That brings us to the end of this present series. May we pray for, teach
our families, and promote in every way we can within our sphere of
influence the blessed and glorious covenanted reformation that Christ is
going to bring to this world. And as we do so, let us seek in our own
individual lives, in our families and in our Churches and Societies remind
ourselves that we are joined to the Lord in Covenant—we are a Covenant
people and a Covenant Nation. And just as we who are parents pray for
our Covenant children that the spiritual promises of the Covenant (made
to us and to our children) may be realized by faith alone and through
God’s grace alone (even when our children rebel and stray from Christ),
so we pray likewise for this rebellious covenanted Nation.
