The covenants of God all have a five-point structure:

1. Transcendence/Immanence (sovereignty)
2. Hierarchy/Command (representation)
3. Ethics/Law (dominion)
4. Oath/Sanctions (judgment)
5. Succession/Inheritance (perseverance)

The acronym is THEOS.

If you want proof of this statement, read Ray Sutton's book, That You May Prosper. You can download a free copy here:

That You May Prosper

In economics, this covenant structure is as follows:

1. Ownership
2. Stewardship
3. Law
4. Profit and Loss
5. Economic Growth or Contraction

Applying these five principles, we get this:

1. God Owns the World
2. Man is a Steward
3. Theft Is Immoral
4. Edenic Scarcity Has Been Cursed
5. Covenant-Keepers Inherit in History
