Genesis 17:19 “And God said, Sarah thy wife shall bear thee a son indeed and thou shall call his name Isaac and I will establish my covenant with him for an everlasting covenant and with his seed.”
Abraham was telling God, “You said you will make me great, You said you will bring out someone through me that will save the world but, I am already old, I am about hundred years old now and Sarah is about ninety years old. Anyway, Ishmael is there You may use him, maybe through him, that seed You are talking about will come to be.”
God said “No, it is not through Ishmael.” God in essence was saying, “The seed I promised in the garden, that will fight the devil and free mankind is not coming through Ishmael, he is coming through a child that thy wife Sarah shall bear and his name shall be called Isaac, through him that seed will eventually come out.
Genesis 17:20-21:"As for Ishmael I have heard thee, behold I have blessed him, and will make him fruitful, and will multiply him exceedingly; twelve princes shall he beget, and I will make him a great nation. But my covenant will I establish with Isaac which Sarah shall bear unto thee at this set time next year.”
As you can see, everything has record. Let nobody come and deceive you. Let nobody send you to hell by bringing a religion God knows nothing about. The Lord has rejected the tribe of Ishmael and his generation when He said the Saviour shall not come out of it. No, it shall come from the generation of Isaac which Sarah thy wife shall bear thee.
As for Ishmael I will bless him, I will multiply him, I will give him twelve princes but the Saviour shall not come from him.
That prophet of God shall not come from him; he shall come through Isaac. The words are very clear, so you can see here that Ishmael is the father of the Arabs where Muhammad came from and the Lord has rejected them right from the beginning.
“The seed of the woman, the Saviour of the world that I am bringing shall not come from the tribe of Ishmael. Ishmael is the son of a slave woman, he is not the son of the original woman. Sarah is your original wife and I the God of all impossibilities, in her old age, I am bringing out a child from her next year and you shall call that child Isaac; it is through him the Saviour of the world shall come.” Hallelujah!
Thought for the day:
Keep hope alive on God's promise. It shall definitely come to pass.
Song for The Day:
Are you weary, are you heavy hearted
