GENESIS 12 A GREAT NATION
« on: April 13, 2020, 10:27:48 am »
Genesis 12:1 Now the LORD had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father's house, unto a land that I will show thee:

 12:2 And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing:

 12:3 And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.

 From Abraham, God would form the nation of Israel. The true nation of Israel would be the spiritual nation, the nation of faith (Deuteronomy 32:21 Romans 10:19 Matthew 21:43).

 The world is to be blessed through Israel. This will be accomplished in the millennial kingdom on earth, at the coming of Christ to establish his reign on earth (Psalm 22:28 Isaiah 2:2-3 Luke 1:32-33 Isaiah 9:7). At this time, the Gentile nations will come to God through Israel; Israel will be a holy nation of priests unto God (Isaiah 60:3 Exodus 19:5-6 Isaiah 61:6).

 The gospel was preached unto Abraham in Galatians 3:8. This was not the gospel of grace revealed to Paul, as this gospel was hid; the gospel given to Abraham was that the Gentiles would also be saved by faith. That the world would be reconciled by the cross was a secret not revealed before Paul (Ephesians 3:1-9 2 Corinthians 5:19).

Doug, did not Paul write Galatians in 50 AD..just before the Jerusalem Council mentioned in Acts 15..

Abraham came from an idolitorus family. He believed in what GOD had told him. He had faith and GOD rewarded him....as He did so many others that believed in Him.

Even though the "Gospel of Jesus Christ" was not preached for 2,000 years  before Christ and His Church, Grace was present and all that landed up in Abram's (Abraham's) Bosom had been touched by this grace. (I.e. Lazarus).

Galatians is an epistle of Paul to the churches in Galatia and Paul did preach the "Gospel of Jesus Christ" to those believers and to those that were on the fence.

1 Cor 15:3-4.."For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:"

Acts 17:11.."These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so."
