Now the LORD said to Abram, “Go forth from your country, And from your relatives And from your father’s house, To the land which I will show you; And I will make you a great nation, And I will bless you, And make your name great; And so you shall be a blessing; And I will bless those who bless you, And the one who curses you I will curse. And in you all the families of the earth will be blessed.” (Gen 12:1-3)
Now the promises were spoken to Abraham and to his seed. He does not say, “And to seeds,” as referring to many, but rather to one, “And to your seed,” that is, Christ. (Gal 3:16)
And if you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham’s descendants, heirs according to promise. (Gal 3:29)
And you brethren, like Isaac, are children of promise.
Like a parable or riddle, unlock this promise and you will capture the heart beat of God. Do you dare to understand Him and His purposes?
