KEY SCRIPTURE: Galatians 3:29” And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.”
Among the many revelations given to Apostle Paul was our relationship to Abraham through our Lord Jesus Christ.
Abraham is the Father of faith. Abraham through his faith took steps and passed through very trying moments; yet he came out very victorious. Abraham received the promise of his son although his age and that of his wife made everything seem impossible. (Romans 14:17-21). He left his homeland and dwelt in strange lands yet in the end He was a blessed man with so much riches. The cream of all these was when God asked him to sacrifice his only laughter (Isaac). He obediently took the boy and was about to slay him but God came and stopped Him (Gen 22:1-20).
Because of his unparalleled obedience the Lord said the following to him Gen 22:18 “And in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed, because though has obeyed my voice”.
In Paul revelations he was made to understand that the seed of Abraham was Christ (Galatians 3:16).
Our faith in our Lord Jesus has made us heirs of the blessings of Abraham. We thank God for what Jesus our Lord has achieved for us. He took us away from the negative and placed us in the positive. He died to do the following for us.
Galatians 3:13 Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree:
This was what his death has done for us. You may look at Deuteronomy 28:16-48 to see what these curses entailed.
On the flip side, to our redemption from the curses, he has placed us right under the blessings of Abraham. We have become direct benefactors of all the blessings conferred on Abraham because of his obedience. These blessings became ours because we believed in Jesus, and have received the promise of the Spirit of God. . Galatians 3:14, “That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through FAITH.
*Beloved you have all that God blessed Abraham with, because all the blessings are packaged in the Holy Spirit who is in you.
(To be continued)
Thank you heavenly Father for giving your son Jesus, by whom I have become a son of Abraham and therefore a partaker of all the blessings of Abraham.
