The Lord made a covenant with Adam, the head of the first dispensation, and renewed that covenant in successive dispensations with Enoch and Noah. Next came Abraham, who sought after the knowledge, blessings, and promises “belonging to the fathers” (Abraham 1:2). The Lord renewed the same covenant with him and told him that through his seed all the nations of the earth would be blessed (see Genesis 18:18; Abraham 2:9). The same covenant was made with Abraham’s son Isaac (see Genesis 26:1–4, 24) and with Isaac’s son Jacob (see Genesis 28:14; 35:9–13), who was given a new name: Israel (see Genesis 35:9–13). Thus, Israel is not just a country but the name of a man and his posterity. The house of Israel is the great big family of Jacob.

I still remember the day I was called to be a patriarch. The stake president came and sat on the stand just before I began conducting sacrament meeting. After the closing song, he asked if my wife and I would meet with him.

Through the ages, God has made covenants with His children. His covenants occur throughout the entire plan of salvation and are therefore part of the fulness of His gospel. For example, God promised to send a Savior for His children, asking in turn for their obedience to His law.
