The idea that "I will be your God, and ye shall be my people" is indeed the core of the Covenant, repeated frequently in Scripture, including twice at the end of John's Revelation.In this passage, the promise is first expressed in general language: "Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God." (Rev 21:3)Then it is reiterated in language that is very personal and individual: "He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son." (Rev 21:7) This is the culmination of the Covenant, for those who are faithful.
