Jesus Through the Bible – Isaac the Promised Seed

“And God said, ‘Sarah thy wife shall bear thee a son indeed; and thou shalt call his name Isaac: and I will establish My covenant with him for an everlasting covenant, and with his seed after him.”  Genesis 17:19 (KJV)

Yes!  Abraham had other children.  His first was Ishmael; due to the impatience of Sarah and himself, thinking to take things concerning the promise of God into their own hands.  God had better things in mind.  Sarah was to have a son of promise.  It was and is through God’s promise of a Saviour that the covenant was made with Isaac as the son of promise.

Just at the time you think it cannot happen; with God nothing shall be impossible.  Jesus is the Son of the covenant of promise and grace.  Paul the apostle has written by inspiration of the Holy Spirit…

“Not as though the word of God hath taken none effect. For they are not all Israel, which are of Israel: neither, because they are the seed of Abraham, are they all children: but, In Isaac shall thy seed be called. That is, They which are the children of the flesh, these are not the children of God: but the children of the promise are counted for the seed.”  Romans 9:6-7

It is by the promise of Jesus, and no other way that one will be forgiven all sin, cleansed, and imputed all righteousness and have fellowship with God.

  1. To the impatience of Sarah ? What did Sarah do that she should have been blessed as the “Mother of many nations”, as Abraham is blessed. For the head of the Woman is the Man & the head of man is Christ & the head of Christ is God. Now Sarah in her love for her Man set aside her sex(which must be productive- Be fruitful & multiply- as commanded by God) so that Abraham may carry his seed forward even by the maid servant. This is pure sacrifice even in today’s standards however unthinkable to the modern woman. Her’s was a case of “Love over Self”. So much that she did it for her husband(her head) so much so she did it unto God.(his head). This very act of Sarah was carried forward by her grand daughters Leah & Rachael , by their maids into forming “The Twelve Tribe tribes of Israel”

    1. She is not commended for this being faith however. Her act, nor Abraham’s was considered faith concerning Hagar. It was in Isaac who was the promised son.

      1. Indeed Tim, By her act of Love for him, His faith became hers too. To the crown of the Glorious Woman in Revelations Ch 12, that of 12 stars are the Twelve tribes in this case Spiritual, which includes.the seed of Sarah & Hagar, To say her crown of twelve stars is the heart of Jesus, to the Elect of God/ the first fruits of the lamb/ the remnant seed of the Woman with the lamb itself the first- These are them following the lamb where ever He goes who keep the commandments of God & have the testimony of Jesus, for they care not for their own lives – The Prophets, Saints & Martyrs, they who now move in the Spirit to which I be a witness in the Spirit, for testings by them for each of the 2 commandments is unto the point of death, for sure & upon their open revelation would be the Kingdom of God on earth even unto Rom 8: 19. Is that not what we pray for by “The Lords Prayer”. Forget not, for God is the God of all of Heaven & Earth, even unto His inheritance.

        1. Let’s be careful that we do not perfect that which God has not perfected.
          Sarah was a woman of faith, no doubt about that. Abraham was a man of faith, no doubt about that; but let us be careful to assume that God commends stepping ahead of Him. The act of Sarah and Abraham, concerning Hagar, has brought trial and judgment on the world.

        2. Issac the promised seed to the birth of Jesus from the old Covenant through the Physical seed of Abraham & the New Covenant by the Christ through the Spiritual seed of Abraham by Faith, for it was that Faith that was/is blessed. Moreover the truth is than no Jew today can claim to be of Pure Physical descent of Abraham for them having mixed with the heathen from the very beginning against the instruction of God For if there be, then known to God only. To this is the reason that the hope comes through the Spiritual, to the new Covenant by the Spirit open unto all of man, be off Sarah & Hagar Therein lies the wisdom in Sarah’s act , even though not known to her then, other than by her love for her man, but known to God. God is never wrong anyway which ever way He who sees the end from the beginning, but unto man the way is Christ. Beware of the great deceit from the west indulging in far east Spirituality from the seat of satan demonizing the Muslim & now Christians. Its revelations forthcoming.
