America Is Warned! Choose you this day…

10/22/14  http://www.westernjournalism.com/billy-graham-america-just-wicked-sodom-gomorrah-ever/ Graham’s commentary, entitled “Turning the Tide of History,” offers a simple solution to the nation’s many woes. “The problems of the world will never be settled unless our national leaders go to God in prayer,” he writes.

 Rev. Graham then noted numerous instances from the Bible where people “turned the tide of history by prayer.”  For example, he notes, Elisha prayed and a young man was raised from the dead; Jesus prayed and Lazarus rose from the dead; the thief on the cross next to Jesus prayed and Jesus told him he would go to paradise that day; John Wesley prayed and religious fervor grew in England, and the same happened with Johnathan Edwards in Northampton.

“I tell you, history could be altered and changed again if people went to their knees in believing prayer,” said Rev. Graham.

 

http://barbwire.com/2014/10/22/natural-marriage-idaho-give-arrest/  Sodomites have been recently emboldened as lower courts lawlessly have been ruling in their favor and as more of them get in positions of power. Recently, the city of Houston has pushed a “bathroom bill,” which was spearheaded by their queer mayor, Annise Parker, to allow men who are gender confused to use women’s bathrooms. Now, the city of Coeur d’Alene, Idaho is skipping towards Gomorrah in a move that would force Christian pastors to perform same-sex “marriages” or face a violation of unlawful non-discrimination laws.

BUT AS FOR ME AND MY HOUSE, WE WILL SERVE THE LORD!!

Josh 24:15 And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.

10/22/14  http://www.foxnews.com/opinion/2014/10/21/isis-threat-what-team-obama-doesnt-want-to-know/  First, the number of ISIS “jihadis” in Iraq and Syria is much greater than we are being told. According to multiple sources in Baghdad, Irbil and elsewhere “down-range,” there are upwards of 40,000 IS fighters in Syria and an equal or greater number in Iraq.
10/21/14 http://www.reuters.com/article/2014/10/22/us-mideast-crisis-iraq-anbar-idUSKCN0IA1PY20141022  Now Anbar’s largest airbase Ain al-Asad, the Haditha Dam – a critical piece of infrastructure – and surrounding towns are encircled by Islamic State to the west from the Syrian border and to the east from militant-controlled sections of Ramadi.
The current events in America are so disturbing! A total rebellion against the constitution by those who hate God and all Christians, could turn so quickly into a change in the world! Be in prayer, be ready!

Zecharia 12:3 And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it.

Dan 11:40And at the time of the end shall the king of the south push at him: and the king of the north shall come against him like a whirlwind, with chariots, and with horsemen, and with many ships; and he shall enter into the countries, and shall overflow and pass over. 41He shall enter also into the glorious land, and many [countries] shall be overthrown: but these shall escape out of his hand, [even] Edom, and Moab, and the chief of the children of Ammon.

Rev 13:2  Now the beast which I saw was like a leopard, his feet were like the feet of a bear, and his mouth like the mouth of a lion. The dragon gave him his power, his throne, and great authority.  Rev 9:2,11; 13:1,5,12-15; Eze 26:7; 38:6; Dan 2-3; 

The coalition of ISIS, Iraq, Syria, Iran, Turkey, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, PLO (West Bank, Gaza), and Babylon will attack Israel.

The woman, Rev 17:3 and I saw a woman – a great and mighty city, reigns over the kings of the earth, a whore, to be destroyed in one day by the ten horns 18 And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth. (Rev 18:10 that great city Babylon, that mighty city!) Rev 17:16 And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire. “Look up for your redeemer is coming soon.” “And those of the people who understand shall instruct many;” “But you, Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book until the time of the end; many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall increase.” And he said, “Go [your way], Daniel, for the words [are] closed up and sealed till the time of the end.” “and none of the wicked shall understand, but the wise shall understand.” Daniel 11 – 12
 
 Christians will be raptured. The anti-christ will be revealed. Israel will be over-run. Israeli remnant will be placed in safety. The wrath of God will be poured upon all mankind. Then ‘IT IS DONE’! The Kingdom of our Lord will be revealed. The marriage supper of the Lamb. Thousand year reign of our Lord!

“Babylon the great, mother of prostitutes and of earth’s abominations.” Revelation 17:3 And he carried me away in the Spirit into a wilderness, and I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast that was full of blasphemous names, and it had seven heads and ten horns. 4The woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet, and adorne with gold and jewels and pearls, holding in her hand a golden cup full of abominations and the impurities of her sexual immorality. 5And upon her forehead [was] a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. 6And I saw the woman, drunk with the blood of the saints, the blood of the martyrs of Jesus. When I saw her, I marveled greatly. Rev 18:16 And saying, Alas, alas, that great city, that was clothed in fine linen, and purple, and scarlet, and decked with gold, and precious stones, and pearls!
 
BABYLON: Someone once said America is the new Babylon. Since that was said there are more choices:
 
Dubai  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dubai  Dubai (/dˈb/ doo-BYArabic: دبيّ‎ DubayyIPA: [dʊˈbæj]) is a city in the United Arab Emirates, located within the emirate of the same name. The emirate of Dubai is located on the southeast coast of the Persian Gulf and is one of the seven emirates that make up the country. It has the largest population in the UAE (2,106,177) and the second-largest land territory (4,114 km2) after the capital, Abu Dhabi.[4] Abu Dhabi and Dubai are the only two emirates to have veto power over critical matters of national importance in the country’s legislature.[5] The city of Dubai is located on the emirate’s northern coastline and heads up the Dubai-Sharjah-Ajman metropolitan area. Dubai is often misperceived as a country or city-state and, in some cases, the UAE as a whole has been described as ‘Dubai’
 
Abu Dhabi houses important offices of the federal government, and is the seat for the UAE (United Arab Emirates Government) and the home for the Abu Dhabi Emiri Family and the President of the UAE from this family. Abu Dhabi has grown to be a cosmopolitan metropolis. Its rapid development and urbanisation, coupled with the relatively high average income of its population, has transformed Abu Dhabi to a larger and advanced metropolis. Today the city is the country’s center of politicalindustrial activities, and a major cultural, and commercial centre due to its position as the capital. Abu Dhabi alone generated 56.7% of the GDP of the United Arab Emirates in 2008.
 
Saudi Arabia, an absolute monarchy ruled by six kings.    http://www.debka.com/newsupdate/7535/    Is this emirate playing the Babylon roll???  http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/183979#.U-pJVfldWSo  8/12/14 Saudi Arabia told Israel on Tuesday that it must reach a peace agreement with the Palestinians if it is to survive as a nation, and criticised Muslims for being divided and failing to stop the Jewish state attacking its Arab neighbours.  Saudi Arabia[b] ( i/ˌsdi əˈrbi.ə/ or  i/ˌsɔːd əˈrbi.ə/), officially known as the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA),[c] is the largest Arab state in Western Asia by land area (approximately 2,150,000 km2 (830,000 sq mi), constituting the bulk of the Arabian Peninsula) and the second-largest in the Arab world after Algeria. It is bordered byJordan and Iraq to the north, Kuwait to the northeast, QatarBahrain and the United Arab Emirates to the east, Oman to the southeast, and Yemen in the south. It is the only nation with both a Red Sea coast and a Persian Gulf coast.Before the inception of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, modern-day Saudi Arabia consisted of four distinct regions: HejazNajd and parts of Eastern Arabia (Al-Hasa) andSouthern Arabia (‘Asir).[12] The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia was founded in 1932 by Ibn Saud; he united the four regions into a single state through a series of conquests beginning in 1902 with the capture of Riyadh, the ancestral home of his family, the House of Saud. The country has since been an absolute monarchy governed alongIslamic lines, namely under the influence of Wahhabism.[13] Saudi Arabia is sometimes called “the Land of the Two Holy Mosques” in reference to Al-Masjid al-Haram (inMecca), and Al-Masjid an-Nabawi (in Medina), the two holiest places in Islam http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saudi_Arabia  http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-4558024,00.html Saudi Arabia told Israel on Tuesday that it must reach a peace agreement with the Palestinians if it is to survive as a nation, and criticised Muslims for being divided and failing to stop the Jewish state attacking its Arab neighbours.

Bahrain, the King, Shaikh Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa; the head of government is the Prime Minister, Shaikh Khalīfa bin Salman al Khalifa a constitutional monarchy  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bahrain .   Bahrain – Kingdom of the Two Seas. Bahrain is a constitutional monarchy headed by the King, Shaikh Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa; the head of government is the Prime Minister, Shaikh Khalīfa bin Salman al Khalifa, who presides over a cabinet of twenty-five members, where 80% of its members are from the royal family. In a region experiencing an oil boom, Bahrain has the fastest growing economy in the Arab world, the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia found in January 2006. Bahrain also has the freest economy in the Middle East according to the 2011 Index of Economic Freedom published by the Heritage Foundation/Wall Street Journal, and is tenth freest overall in the world.

BASRA has a major role in H.G. Wells‘s 1934 future history “The Shape of Things to Come” “where the Iraqi city is at the center of a world state emerging after a collapse of civilization and becomes in effect the capital of the world.” Basra is home to all of Iraq’s six ports; Umm Qasr is the main deep-water port with 22 platforms, some of which are dedicated to specific goods (such as sulfur, seeds, lubricant oil, etc.) The other five ports are smaller in scale and more narrowly specialized. Fishing was an important business before the oil boom. The city also has an international airport, with service into Baghdad with Iraqi Airways—the national airline.
 
Qatar Since 1995, Emir Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani has ruled Qatar, seizing control of the country from his father Khalifa bin Hamad Al Thani while the latter vacationed in Switzerland. Under Emir Hamad, Qatar has experienced a notable amount of sociopolitical liberalization, including the endorsement of women’s suffrage or right to vote, drafting a new constitution, and the launch of Al Jazeera, a leading English and Arabic news source which operates a website and satellite television news channel.The International Monetary Fund states that Qatar has the highest GDP per capita in the world, followed by Luxembourg. The World Factbook ranks Qatar at second, following Luxembourg.
 
America –  is not mentioned in the Bible. It would be reasonable to assume then America has no role in the ‘last days’ playing out. Thus, if America were to prosper and continue affecting the governments, politics and wars it would never play out the way God purposes it to be. Therein the results of American politics has well played into the purpose of God. Americans must take joy in knowing the return of our Lord Jesus Christ is imminent.  Pray for strength, courage and each other to endure whatever plays out till our Lord Jesus Christ returns. America use to be a Christian country! Is POTUS/Russia right? http://www.foxnews.com/world/2014/09/27/russian-minister-says-us-must-abandon-claim-to-eternal-uniqueness/  
 
The current events in America are so disturbing! A total rebellion against the constitution by those who hate God and all Christians, could turn so quickly into a change in the world! Be in prayer, be ready!

He knows with whom he is dealing, that Caliph. http://www.israelnationalnews.com/Articles/Article.aspx/15789#.VDwl9fldWSp  Cynical lies are good only for a strategic flight. Caliph Abu Bakr al Baghdadi deserves our respect. The European governments, mirror of the idle self-righteous conscience, are reluctant to act against the Islamists of the Caliph Abu Bakr al Baghdadi and his terrorista, who want to scar the society in which they lived and that gave them birth, who take pride in fighting for the Prophet and who are trying to sweep away any sign of civilization through the imposition of a regime of submission.

“Come, everyone who thirsts, come to the waters; and he who has no money, come, buy and eat! Come, buy wine and milk without money and without price.” (Isa 55:1)   Jesus Christ is the Son of God.

(1)Babylon (Scofield, C. I. “Scofield Reference Notes on Isaiah 13″. “Scofield Reference Notes (1917 Edition)”. <http://www.studylight.org/com/srn/view.cgi?book=isa&chapter=013&gt;. 1917.) The city, Babylon is not in view here, as the immediate context shows. It is important to note the significance of the name when used symbolically. “Babylon” is the Greek form: invariably in the O.T. Hebrew the word is simply Babel, the meaning of which is confusion, and in this sense the word is used symbolically. (1) In the prophets, when the actual city is not meant, the reference is to the “confusion” into which the whole social order of the world has fallen under Gentile world-domination. (See “Times of the Gentiles,” Luke 21:24Revelation 16:14Isaiah 13:4 gives the divine view of the welter of warring Gentile powers. The divine order is given in Isa. 11. Israel in her own land, the centre of the divine government of the world and channel of the divine blessing; and the Gentiles blessed in association with Israel. Anything else is, politically, mere “babel.” (2) In Revelation 14:8-1116:19 the Gentile world-system is in view in connection with Armageddon; Revelation 16:1419:21 while in Rev 17, the reference is to apostate Christianity, destroyed by the nations Revelation 17:16 headed up under the Beast ; Daniel 7:8Revelation 19:20 and false prophet. In Isaiah the political Babylon is in view, literally as to the then existing city, and symbolically as to the times of the Gentiles. In the Revelation both the symbolical- political and symbolical-religious Babylon are in view, for there both are alike under the tyranny of the Beast. Religious Babylon is destroyed by political Babylon Revelation 17:16 political Babylon by the appearing of the Lord Revelation 19:19-21. That Babylon the city is not to be rebuilt is clear from ; Isaiah 13:19-22Jeremiah 51:24-26,62-64. By political Babylon is meant the Gentile world-system. (See “World,” ; John 7:7Revelation 13:8) It may be added that, in Scripture symbolism, Egypt stands for the world as such; Babylon for the world of corrupt power and corrupted religion; Nineveh for the pride, the haughty glory of the world. (Scofield, C. I. “Scofield Reference Notes on Isaiah 13.″)

The Red Sea Parts Again

This is the way I think it looked when God called Israel out of Egypt. Only I believe the Sinai was not as wide as it is today. Fun isn’t it.

Everlasting Gospel, Secret of God, His Oath. God Swore to Abraham

Oath of God: The Everlasting Gospel Revelation 14:6 And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people

God swore to Abraham, made an oath:

THE OATH / PROMISE / COVENANT
Gen 12:1 Now the LORD had said to Abram: “Get out of your country, From your family And from your father’s house, To a land that I will show you. 2 I will make you a great nation; I will bless you And make your name great; And you shall be a blessing. 3 I will bless those who bless you, And I will curse him who curses you; And in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.”

The Complete Green Letters by Miles J. Stanford; Zondervan Publishing House, Grand Rapids, Michigan; Chapter 32 In-Law, page 151

(1) Four hundred and thirty years before God introduced the law (the ten commandments), He gave Abraham the covenant of promise. This covenant had to do with faith, and with Christ.

Faith“Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness…So then they which be of faith are blessed with faith, and with Christ. (Gal. 3:6,9). Gal. 3:7 Therefore know that [only] those who are of faith are sons of Abraham.

Christ – “Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ” (Gal. 3:16). The Father’s Old Testament expression of His one and only way of salvation was by grace through faith in the coming Messiah.

(2) Four centuries after Abraham received the covenant of promise. God presented the law to the Jews. “The law was given by Moses” (John 1:17). The law was not meant to replace the principles of promise, grace, and faith, but was brought in alongside. “The law, which was four hundred and thirty years after, cannot disannul, that it should make the promise of none effect. For if the inheritance be of the law, it is no more of promise: but God gave it to Abraham by promise” (Gal. 3:17, 18).

(3) God’s “law is holy, and the commandment holy, and just, and good” (Rom. 7:12). But it has to do with sin and death, not righteousness and life. “For by the law is knowledge of sin” (Rom 3:20). The law reveals man’s condition and intensifies his need. “But sin, that it might appear sin, working death in me by that which is good; that sin by the commandment might become exceeding sinful” (Rom. 7:13).”

The law did not abrogate the Abrahamic Covenant Galatians 3:6-9,15-18 but was an intermediate disciplinary dealing “till the Seed should come to whom the promise was made”;

The New Covenant (Prophecy) of Jeremiah 31:31-40 and 32:40ff. is one of the significant covenants of Scripture, and is remarkably full, stating: (1) the time of the covenant (vv. 31,33); (2) the parties to the covenant (v. 31); (3) the contrast in covenants – Mosaic and New (v. 32); (4) the terms of the covenant (v. 33); (5) the comprehensiveness of the covenant (v. 34); (6) the basic features of the covenant (v. 34): (a) knowledge of God and (b) forgiveness of sin; (7) the perpetuity of the people of the covenant (vv. 35-37; and (8) the guarantee of the covenant (the rebuilt city) (vv.38-40). See Heb. 8:8, note. Although certain features of this covenant have been fulfilled for believers in the present Church Age, e.g. (6) the covenant remains to be realized for Israel according to the explicit statement of v. 31.

The law did not abrogate the Abrahamic Covenant Galatians 3:6-9,15-18 but was an intermediate disciplinary dealing “till the Seed should come to whom the promise was made” ;

This is why Christians support Israel!

Hebrews 8:8

The New Covenant, the last of the eight great covenants of Scripture (as Scofield defines them), is (1) “better” than the Mosaic Covenant (Ex. 19:5, note), not morally but efficaciously (Heb. 7:19; cp. Rom. 8:3-4). (2) It is established upon “better” (i.e. unconditional) promises. In the Mosaic Covenant God said, “If ye will” (Ex. 19:5); in the New Covenant He says, “I will” (Heb. 8:10,12). (3) Under the Mosaic Covenant obedience sprang from fear (2:2; 12:25-27); under the New it issues from a willing heart and mind (8:10). (4) The New Covenant secures the personal revelation of the Lord to every believer (v. 11). (5) It assures the complete oblivion of sins (v. 12; 10:17; cp. 10:3). (6) It rests upon an accomplished redemption (Mt. 26:27-28; 1 Cor. 11:25; Heb. 9:11-12, 18-23). Bear in mind that the same Greek word (diatheke) is rendered both as “testament” and as “covenant” in the N.T. And (7) it secures the perpetuity, future conversion, and blessing of a repentant Israel, with whom the New Covenant will yet be ratified (10:9; cp. Jer. 31:31-40; see also Kingdom (O.T.), Zech 12:8, note; and 2 Sam 7:8-17 with notes).

Covenants: Pg vii, Scofield Reference Bible. Oath of Everlasting Gospel

Covenant / Oath

The Abrahamic Covenant/Oath / Promise as formed Genesis 12:1-4 and confirmed; Genesis 13:14-17; Genesis 15:1-7;Genesis 17:1-8 is in seven distinct parts:

(1) “I will make of thee a great nation.” Fulfilled in a threefold way:

(a) In a natural posterity–“as the dust of the earth Genesis 13:16; John 8:37, viz. the Hebrew people.

(b) In a spiritual posterity–“look now toward heaven. .. so shall thy seed be” John 8:39; Romans 4:16,17; Romans 9:7; Romans 9:8; Galatians 3:6; Galatians 3:7; Galatians 3:29 viz. all men of faith, whether Jew or Gentile.

(c) fulfilled also through Ishmael Genesis 17:18-20

(2) “I will bless thee.” Fulfilled in two ways:

(a) temporally Genesis 13:14; Genesis 13:15; Genesis 13:17; Genesis 15:18; Genesis 24:34; Genesis 24:35 (b) spiritually; Genesis 15:6; John 8:56

(3) “And make thy name great.” Abraham’s is one of the universal names.

(4) “And thou shalt be a blessing” Galatians 3:13; Galatians 3:14

(5) “I will bless them that bless thee.” In fulfilment closely related to the next clause.

(6) “And curse him that curseth thee.” Wonderfully fulfilled in the history of the dispersion. It has invariably fared ill with the people who have persecuted the Jew–well with those who have protected him. The future will still more remarkably prove this principle Deuteronomy 30:7; Isaiah 14:1,; Joel 3:1-8; Micah 5:7-9;Haggai 2:22; Zechariah 14:1-3; Matthew 25:40; Matthew 25:45.

(7) “In thee shall all the families of the earth be blessed.” This is the great evangelic promise fulfilled in Abraham’s Seed, Christ Galatians 3:16; John 8:56-58.

It brings into greater definiteness the promise of the Adamic Covenant concerning the Seed of the woman Genesis 3:15

NOTE.–The covenant/oath of the land is modified by prophecies of three dispossessions and restorations Genesis 15:13; Genesis 15:14; Genesis 15:16; Jeremiah 25:11; Jeremiah 25:12; Deuteronomy 28:62-65;Deuteronomy 30:1-3. Two dispossessions and restorations have been accomplished. Israel is now in the third dispersion, from which she will be restored at the return of the Lord as King under the Davidic Covenant; Deuteronomy 30:3; Jeremiah 23:5-8; Ezekiel 37:21-25; Luke 1:30-33; Acts 15:14-17

the other seven covenants:

EDENIC “Genesis 1:28″) ADAMIC “Genesis 3:15″ NOAHIC “Genesis 9:1″ MOSAIC “Exodus 19:25″ PALESTINIAN “Deuteronomy 30:3″ DAVIDIC “2 Samuel 7:16″ NEW “Hebrews 8:8″

Rom 9:7 nor [are they] all children because they are the seed of Abraham; but, “In Isaac your seed shall be called.” 8 That is, those who [are] the children of the flesh, these [are] not the children of God; but the children of the promise are counted as the seed.

Galatians 3:6 just as Abraham “believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness.” 7 Therefore know that [only] those who are of faith are sons of Abraham. 8 And the Scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the Gentiles by faith, preached the gospel to Abraham beforehand, [saying], “In you all the nations shall be blessed.” 9 So then those who [are] of faith are blessed with believing Abraham. 14 that the blessing of Abraham might come upon the Gentiles in Christ Jesus, that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith. … 16 Now to Abraham and his Seed were the promises made.’ He does not say, “And to seeds,” as of many, but as of one, “And to your Seed,” who is Christ. … 18 For if the inheritance [is] of the law, [it is] no longer of promise; but God gave [it] to Abraham by promise. – Galatians 3:7-9, 14, 16, 18 NKJV

Dispensations: dealings with humanity, the increasing purpose which runs through and links together time-periods during which man has been responsible for specific and varying tests as to his obedience to God, from the beginning of human history to its end. Although not all Bible students agree in every detail of the dispensational system presented in this Reference Bible, it is generally recognized that the distinction between law and grace is basic to the understanding of the Scriptures.

Deut 29:29 “The secret things belong to the LORD our God, but those things which are revealed belong to us and to our children forever, that we may do all the words of this law.

Eph 3:5 which in other ages was not made known to the sons of men, as it has now been revealed by the Spirit to His holy apostles and prophets:

 

THE OATH

Gen 12:1 Now the LORD had said to Abram: “Get out of your country, From your family And from your father’s house, To a land that I will show you. 2 I will make you a great nation; I will bless you And make your name great; And you shall be a blessing. 3 I will bless those who bless you, And I will curse him who curses you; And in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.”

And also, the land, Gen 13:14 And the LORD said to Abram, after Lot had separated from him: “Lift your eyes now and look from the place where you are–northward, southward, eastward, and westward; … 16 “And I will make your descendants as the dust of the earth; so that if a man could number the dust of the earth, [then] your descendants also could be numbered.

Gen 15:2 But Abram said, “Lord GOD, what will You give me, seeing I go childless, and the heir of my house [is] Eliezer of Damascus?” 3 Then Abram said, “Look, You have given me no offspring; indeed one born in my house is my heir!” 4 And behold, the word of the LORD [came] to him, saying, “This one shall not be your heir, but one who will come from your own body shall be your heir.” 5 Then He brought him outside and said, “Look now toward heaven, and count the stars if you are able to number them.” And He said to him, “So shall your descendants be.” 6 And he believed in the LORD, and He accounted it to him for righteousness. 7 Then He said to him, “I [am] the LORD, who brought you out of Ur of the Chaldeans, to give you this land to inherit it.” 8 And he said, “Lord GOD, how shall I know that I will inherit it?” 9 So He said to him, “Bring Me a three-year-old heifer, a three-year-old female goat, a three-year-old ram, a turtledove, and a young pigeon.” 10 Then he brought all these to Him and cut them in two, down the middle, and placed each piece opposite the other; but he did not cut the birds in two. 11 And when the vultures came down on the carcasses, Abram drove them away. 12 And when the sun was going down, a deep sleep fell upon Abram; and, lo, an horror of great darkness fell upon him. 13 And he said unto Abram, Know of a surety that thy seed shall be a stranger in a land [that is] not theirs, and shall serve them; and they shall afflict them four hundred years; 14 And also that nation, whom they shall serve, will I judge: and afterward shall they come out with great substance. 15 And thou shalt go to thy fathers in peace; thou shalt be buried in a good old age. 16 But in the fourth generation they shall come hither again: for the iniquity of the Amorites [is] not yet full. 17 And it came to pass, that, when the sun went down, and it was dark, behold a smoking furnace, and a burning lamp that passed between those pieces. 18 In the same day the LORD made a covenant with Abram, saying, Unto thy seed have I given this land, from the river of Egypt unto the great river, the river Euphrates: – Genesis 15:2-18 KJV

Genesis 17:19 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. … 21 But my covenant will I establish with Isaac, which Sarah shall bear unto thee at this set time in the next year.

This child of Oath / Promise  God has made, ‘My covenant with him for an everlasting covenant, [and] with his descendants after him’. 

Genesis 17:1 When Abram was ninety-nine years old, the LORD appeared to Abram and said to him, “I [am] Almighty God; walk before Me and be blameless. 2 “And I will make My covenant between Me and you, and will multiply you exceedingly.”3 Then Abram fell on his face, and God talked with him, saying: 4 “As for Me, behold, My covenant is with you, and you shall be a father of many nations.5 “No longer shall your name be called Abram, but your name shall be Abraham; for I have made you a father of many nations.6″I will make you exceedingly fruitful; and I will make nations of you, and kings shall come from you. 7 “And I will establish My covenant between Me and you and your descendants after you in their generations, for an everlasting covenant, to be God to you and your descendants after you.8″Also I give to you and your descendants after you the land in which you are a stranger, all the land of Canaan, as an everlasting possession; and I will be their God.” 9 And God said to Abraham: “As for you, you shall keep My covenant, you and your descendants after you throughout their generations. 10″This [is] My covenant which you shall keep, between Me and you and your descendants after you: Every male child among you shall be circumcised; 11″and you shall be circumcised in the flesh of your foreskins, and it shall be a sign of the covenant between Me and you. 12 “He who is eight days old among you shall be circumcised, every male child in your generations, he who is born in your house or bought with money from any foreigner who is not your descendant.13 “He who is born in your house and he who is bought with your money must be circumcised, and My covenant shall be in your flesh for an everlasting covenant.14 “And the uncircumcised male child, who is not circumcised in the flesh of his foreskin, that person shall be cut off from his people; he has broken My covenant.”15 Then God said to Abraham, “As for Sarai your wife, you shall not call her name Sarai, but Sarah [shall be] her name. 16 “And I will bless her and also give you a son by her; then I will bless her, and she shall be [a mother of] nations; kings of peoples shall be from her.”17 Then Abraham fell on his face and laughed, and said in his heart, “Shall [a child] be born to a man who is one hundred years old? And shall Sarah, who is ninety years old, bear [a child]?” 18 And Abraham said to God, “Oh, that Ishmael might live before You!”19 Then God said: “No, Sarah your wife shall bear you a son, and you shall call his name Isaac; I will establish My covenant with him for an everlasting covenant, [and] with his descendants after him.20 “And as for Ishmael, I have heard you. Behold, I have blessed him, and will make him fruitful, and will multiply him exceedingly. He shall beget twelve princes, and I will make him a great nation.21″But My covenant I will establish with Isaac, whom Sarah shall bear to you at this set time next year.”22 Then He finished talking with him, and God went up from Abraham.23 So Abraham took Ishmael his son, all who were born in his house and all who were bought with his money, every male among the men of Abraham’s house, and circumcised the flesh of their foreskins that very same day, as God had said to him.24 Abraham [was] ninety-nine years old when he was circumcised in the flesh of his foreskin.25 And Ishmael his son [was] thirteen years old when he was circumcised in the flesh of his foreskin. 26That very same day Abraham was circumcised, and his son Ishmael; 27 and all the men of his house, born in the house or bought with money from a foreigner, were circumcised with him.

Genesis 21:12 But God said to Abraham, “Do not let it be displeasing in your sight because of the lad or because of your bondwoman. Whatever Sarah has said to you, listen to her voice; for in Isaac your seed shall be called. 13 “Yet I will also make a nation of the son of the bondwoman, because he [is] your seed.” 14 So Abraham rose early in the morning, and took bread and a skin of water; and putting [it] on her shoulder, he gave [it] and the boy to Hagar, and sent her away. Then she departed and wandered in the Wilderness of Beersheba. 20 So God was with the lad; and he grew and dwelt in the wilderness, and became an archer. 21 He dwelt in the Wilderness of Paran; and his mother took a wife for him from the land of Egypt.

Genesis 22:16 and said: “By Myself I have sworn, says the LORD, because you have done this thing, and have not withheld your son, your only [son]– 17 “blessing I will bless you, and multiplying I will multiply your descendants as the stars of the heaven and as the sand which [is] on the seashore; and your descendants shall possess the gate of their enemies. 18 “In your seed all the nations of the earth shall be blessed, because you have obeyed My voice.”

Genesis 25:23 And the LORD said to her: “Two nations [are] in your womb, Two peoples shall be separated from your body; [One] people shall be stronger than the other, And the older shall serve the younger.”

Genesis 26:2 Then the LORD appeared to him and said: “Do not go down to Egypt; live in the land of which I shall tell you. 3 “Dwell in this land, and I will be with you and bless you; for to you and your descendants I give all these lands, and I will perform the oath which I swore to Abraham your father. 4 “And I will make your descendants multiply as the stars of heaven; I will give to your descendants all these lands; and in your seed all the nations of the earth shall be blessed; 5 “because Abraham obeyed My voice and kept My charge, My commandments, My statutes, and My laws.” … 24 And the LORD appeared to him the same night and said, “I [am] the God of your father Abraham; do not fear, for I [am] with you. I will bless you and multiply your descendants for My servant Abraham’s sake.” – Genesis 26:2-5, 24

Genesis 28:11 So he came to a certain place and stayed there all night, because the sun had set. And he took one of the stones of that place and put it at his head, and he lay down in that place to sleep. 12 Then he dreamed, and behold, a ladder [was] set up on the earth, and its top reached to heaven; and there the angels of God were ascending and descending on it. 13 And behold, the LORD stood above it and said: “I [am] the LORD God of Abraham your father and the God of Isaac; the land on which you lie I will give to you and your descendants. 14 “Also your descendants shall be as the dust of the earth; you shall spread abroad to the west and the east, to the north and the south; and in you and in your seed all the families of the earth shall be blessed. 15 “Behold, I [am] with you and will keep you wherever you go, and will bring you back to this land; for I will not leave you until I have done what I have spoken to you.” 16 Then Jacob awoke from his sleep and said, “Surely the LORD is in this place, and I did not know [it].” 17 And he was afraid and said, “How awesome [is] this place! This [is] none other than the house of God, and this [is] the gate of heaven!” … 20 Then Jacob made a vow, saying, “If God will be with me, and keep me in this way that I am going, and give me bread to eat and clothing to put on, 21 “so that I come back to my father’s house in peace, then the LORD shall be my God. 22 “And this stone which I have set as a pillar shall be God’s house, and of all that You give me I will surely give a tenth to You.” – Genesis 28:11-17, 20-22

 

Genesis 35:11 Also God said to him: “I [am] God Almighty. Be fruitful and multiply; a nation and a company of nations shall proceed from you, and kings shall come from your body. 12 “The land which I gave Abraham and Isaac I give to you; and to your descendants after you I give this land.” – Genesis 35:11-12

 

Acts 2:30 “Therefore, being a prophet, and knowing that God had sworn with an oath to him that of the fruit of his body, according to the flesh, He would raise up the Christ to sit on his throne, – Acts 2:30

 

Deut 7:6 “For you [are] a holy people to the LORD your God; the LORD your God has chosen you to be a people for Himself, a special treasure above all the peoples on the face of the earth. 7 “The LORD did not set His love on you nor choose you because you were more in number than any other people, for you were the least of all peoples; 8 “but because the LORD loves you, and because He would keep the oath which He swore to your fathers, the LORD has brought you out with a mighty hand, and redeemed you from the house of bondage, from the hand of Pharaoh king of Egypt – Deut 7:6-8

 

Deut 29:12 “that you may enter into covenant with the LORD your God, and into His oath, which the LORD your God makes with you today, 13 “that He may establish you today as a people for Himself, and [that] He may be God to you, just as He has spoken to you, and just as He has sworn to your fathers, to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. 14 “I make this covenant and this oath, not with you alone, 15 “but with [him] who stands here with us today before the LORD our God, as well as with [him] who [is] not here with us today – Deut 29:12-15

1 Chronicles 16:16 [The covenant which] He made with Abraham, And His oath to Isaac,

Nehemiah 10:29 these joined with their brethren, their nobles, and entered into a curse and an oath to walk in God’s Law, which was given by Moses the servant of God, and to observe and do all the commandments of the LORD our Lord, and His ordinances and His statutes:

Psalms 105:6 O seed of Abraham His servant, You children of Jacob, His chosen ones! … 8 He remembers His covenant forever, The word [which] He commanded, for a thousand generations, 9 [The covenant] which He made with Abraham, And His oath to Isaac, 10 And confirmed it to Jacob for a statute, To Israel [as] an everlasting covenant, … 26 He sent Moses His servant, [And] Aaron whom He had chosen. – Psalms 105:6, 8-10, 26 NKJV

 

Isaiah 45:22 “Look to Me, and be saved, All you ends of the earth! For I [am] God, and [there is] no other. 23 I have sworn by Myself; The word has gone out of My mouth [in] righteousness, And shall not return, That to Me every knee shall bow, Every tongue shall take an oath. – Isaiah 45:22-23 NKJV

 

Jeremiah 11:5 “that I may establish the oath which I have sworn to your fathers, to give them ‘a land flowing with milk and honey,’ as [it is] this day.” ‘ ” And I answered and said, “So be it, LORD.” – Jeremiah 11:5 NKJV

 

Acts 2:25 “For David says concerning Him: ‘I foresaw the LORD always before my face, For He is at my right hand, that I may not be shaken. … 30 “Therefore, being a prophet, and knowing that God had sworn with an oath to him that of the fruit of his body, according to the flesh, He would raise up the Christ to sit on his throne, – Acts 2:25, 30 NKJV

 

Daniel 9:11 “Yes, all Israel has transgressed Your law, and has departed so as not to obey Your voice; therefore the curse and the oath written in the Law of Moses the servant of God have been poured out on us, because we have sinned against Him. – Daniel 9:11 NKJV

 

Luke 1:72 To perform the mercy [promised] to our fathers And to remember His holy covenant, 73 The oath which He swore to our father Abraham: – Luke 1:72-73 NKJV

 

Hebrews 7:20 And inasmuch as [He was] not [made priest] without an oath 21 (for they have become priests without an oath, but He with an oath by Him who said to Him: “The LORD has sworn And will not relent, ‘You [are] a priest forever According to the order of Melchizedek’ “), … 28 For the law appoints as high priests men who have weakness, but the word of the oath, which came after the law, [appoints] the Son who has been perfected forever. - Hebrews 7:20-21, 28 NKJV

 

Rom 4:16 Therefore [it is] of faith that [it might be] according to grace, so that the promise might be sure to all the seed, not only to those who are of the law, but also to those who are of the faith of Abraham, who is the father of us all 17 (as it is written, “I have made you a father of many nations”) in the presence of Him whom he believed–God, who gives life to the dead and calls those things which do not exist as though they did; 18 who, contrary to hope, in hope believed, so that he became the father of many nations, according to what was spoken, “So shall your descendants be.” … 20 He did not waver at the promise of God through unbelief, but was strengthened in faith, giving glory to God, 21 and being fully convinced that what He had promised He was also able to perform. 22 And therefore “it was accounted to him for righteousness.” … 24 but also for us. It shall be imputed to us who believe in Him who raised up Jesus our Lord from the dead, – Romans 4:16-18, 20-22, 24 NKJV

 

Gal 3:13 13 Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us (for it is written, “Cursed [is] everyone who hangs on a tree”), 14 that the blessing of Abraham might come upon the Gentiles in Christ Jesus, that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith. 15 Brethren, I speak in the manner of men: Though [it is] only a man’s covenant, yet [if it is] confirmed, no one annuls or adds to it. 16 Now to Abraham and his Seed were the promises made. He does not say, “And to seeds,” as of many, but as of one, “And to your Seed,” who is Christ. 17 And this I say, [that] the law, which was four hundred and thirty years later, cannot annul the covenant that was confirmed before by God in Christ, that it should make the promise of no effect. 18 For if the inheritance [is] of the law, [it is] no longer of promise; but God gave [it] to Abraham by promise. 19 What purpose then [does] the law [serve]? It was added because of transgressions, till the Seed should come to whom the promise was made; [and it was] appointed through angels by the hand of a mediator. 20 Now a mediator does not [mediate] for one [only], but God is one. 21 [Is]  the law then against the promises of God? Certainly not! For if there had been a law given which could have given life, truly righteousness would have been by the law. 22 But the Scripture has confined all under sin,  that the promise by faith in Jesus Christ might be given to those who believe. 23 But before faith came, we were kept under guard by the law, kept for the faith which would afterward be revealed. 24 Therefore the law was our tutor [to bring us] to Christ, that we might be justified by faith. 25 But after faith has come, we are no longer under a tutor. 26 For you are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus. 27 For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ. 28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus. 29 And if you [are] Christ’s, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise. – Galatians 3:19-29 NKJV

 

Hbr 6:15 And so, after he had patiently endured, he obtained the promise. 16 For men indeed swear by the greater, and an oath for confirmation [is] for them an end of all dispute. 17 Thus God, determining to show more abundantly to the heirs of promise the immutability of His counsel, confirmed [it] by an oath, 18 that by two immutable things, in which it [is] impossible for God to lie, we might have strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold of the hope set before [us]. – Hebrews 6:15-18 NKJV

 

Heb 13:8 Jesus Christ [is] the same yesterday, today, and forever. – Hebrews 13:8 NKJV

 

Jer 23:5 “Behold, [the] days are coming,” says the LORD, “That I will raise to David a Branch of righteousness; A King shall reign and prosper, And execute judgment and righteousness in the earth. 6 In His days Judah will be saved, And Israel will dwell safely; Now this [is] His name by which He will be called: THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS. – Jeremiah 23:5-6 NKJV

 

The law did not abrogate the Abrahamic Covenant Galatians 3:15-18 but was an intermediate disciplinary dealing “till the Seed should come to whom the promise was made” ;

Promise –  Abrahamic

Gen 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 shew thee:

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

Gen 12:7  And the LORD appeared unto Abram, and said, Unto thy seed will I give this land: and there builded he an altar unto the LORD, who appeared unto him.

Now the Lord

The Fourth Dispensation: Promise. For Abraham, and his descendants it is evident that the Abrahamic Covenant (See Scofield “Genesis 15:18“) made a great change. They became distinctively the heirs of promise. That covenant is wholly gracious and unconditional. The descendants of Abraham had but to abide in their own land to inherit every blessing. In Egypt they lost their blessings, but not their covenant. The Dispensation of Promise ended when Israel rashly accepted the law Exodus 19:8. Grace had prepared a deliverer (Moses), provided a sacrifice for the guilty, and by divine power brought them out of bondage Exodus 19:4 but at Sinai they exchanged grace for law. The Dispensation of Promise extends from Genesis 12:1 to Exodus 19:8, and was exclusively Israelitish. The dispensation must be distinguished from the covenant. The former is a mode of testing; the latter is everlasting because unconditional. The law did not abrogate the Abrahamic Covenant Galatians 3:15-18 but was an intermediate disciplinary dealing “till the Seed should come to whom the promise was made” ; Galatians 3:19-29; 4:1-7. Only the dispensation, as a testing of Israel, ended at the giving of the law.

Gen 13:15; For all the land which thou seest, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed for ever.  The ‘hub of the Bible’, per J.V.McGee

Gen 15:18  In the same day the LORD made a covenant with Abram, saying, Unto thy seed have I given this land, from the river of Egypt unto the great river, the river Euphrates:

covenant

(2) “I will bless thee.” Fulfilled in two ways:

(a) temporally Genesis 13:14,15,17; 15:18; 24:34,35 (b) spiritually ; Genesis 15:6; John 8:56

(3) “And make thy name great.” Abraham’s is one of the universal names.

(4) “And thou shalt be a blessing” Galatians 3:13,14

(5) “I will bless them that bless thee.” In fulfilment The Abrahamic Covenant as formed Genesis 12:1-4 and confirmed ; Genesis 13:14-17; 15:1-7 17:1-8 is in seven distinct parts:

(1) “I will make of thee a great nation.” Fulfilled in a threefold way:

(a) In a natural posterity–“as the dust of the earth Genesis 13:16; John 8:37, viz. the Hebrew people.

(b) In a spiritual posterity—Gen 15:5; “look now toward heaven . . . so shall thy seed be” John 8:39; Romans 4:16,17; 9:7,8; Galatians 3:6,7,29 viz. all men of faith, whether Jew or Gentile. Gen 15:6; And he believed in the LORD; and he counted it to him for righteousness.

(c) fulfilled also through Ishmael Genesis 17:18-20

closely related to the next clause.

(6) “And curse him that curseth thee.” Wonderfully fulfilled in the history of the dispersion. It has invariably fared ill with the people who have persecuted the Jew–well with those who have protected him. The future will still more remarkably prove this principle Deuteronomy 30:7; Isaiah 14:1,; Joel 3:1-8; Micah 5:7-9; Haggai 2:22; Zechariah 14:1-3; Matthew 25:40,45.

(7) Gen 12:3; “In thee shall all the families of the earth be blessed.” This is the great evangelic promise fulfilled in Abraham’s Seed, Christ Galatians 3:16; John 8:56-58.

It brings into greater definiteness the promise of the Adamic Covenant concerning the Seed of the woman Genesis 3:15

NOTE.–The gift of the land is modified by prophecies of three dispossessions and restorations Genesis 15:13,14,16; Jeremiah 25:11,12; Deuteronomy 28:62-65; 30:1-3. Two dispossessions and restorations have been accomplished. Israel is now in the third dispersion, from which she will be restored at the return of the Lord as King under the Davidic Covenant ; Deuteronomy 30:3; Jeremiah 23:5-8; Ezekiel 37:21-25; Luke 1:30-33; Acts 15:14-17

 

As you see from above there are great musings about the dispensations, covenants, scriptures explaining the land, the covenants, and somehow it seems to be totally missed except by a few.

As Kay Arthur of Precept Upon Precept Ministries, says in Lesson One Overview of “Covenant” Study Series (page i): When studying the Bible use these guidelines!

3 Rules

  1. Observation
  2. Interpretation Use Scripture to interpret Scripture.

2 Pet 1:20,21 = knowing this first, that no prophecy of Scripture is of any private interpretation, (No prophecy is of its own interpretation; i.e. not isolated from what the Scripture states elsewhere.)

  1. Application
