Call it the First or Rainbow Covenant, the Noahide or Universal Covenant,
or the Golden Covenant (after the Golden Rule).

Whatever you call the great pact between God and the human race, it starts with Him putting us all on notice: every individual human being is sacred; He made us rather like Him, "in His 'image'" (Genesis 1:26, 1:27, 5:1). Besides being rather like the One holy Maker of all things, who gives our race dominion over this blessed planet Earth, we all live connected to His sanctity and infinity.

"Love your neighbor as yourself" (Leviticus 19:18) and "love the stranger" (Leviticus 19:34), the so-called Golden Rule - "do unto others as you would be done by" - follows clearly, logically and directly. So too do all the Seven Commandments that apply to all humanity - the "Rainbow Covenant" laws, or Noahide laws - that make the Universal Revelation operational, which lie at the root of ALL Hebrew Scripture.

This wisdom exists to guide us all to grace, higher consciousness, and power.

It greatly rewards study. Contrary to popular belief, it's not the Ten Commandments from God's Covenant with the Jewish People at Mt. Sinai that's the Universal Teaching - with its laws, addressed to the Hebrews, to "keep the [seventh day] Sabbath holy," not to "covet," not to "envy," and not "take the Name of the Lord God in 'vain'" (Exodus 20; Deuteronomy 5) - but the Seven Commandments, the "Noahide Law."

These are the "logical laws," the "social laws," that arise - along with the Golden Rule - from the much more ancient Revelation, of the Godliness of humankind, to all the descendants of Adam and Noah.

These brilliant laws bear divinity on their face. A mere seventeen syllables encapsulating a complete criminal law code and utterly reliable standard for all human morality and government and ethics, applying justly and equitably to all people at all times, and correcting injustice...

Whatever your religion - or even if you dislike religion - you will find this study eye-opening.
