Tangle, I was going to list some archaeological discoveries
that highly supports places and people mentioned in the
However, I am going to post some promises made to
Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob (whose name was changed
by God to Israel), as well as these promises and blessings
God promised Abraham that he would become the father
of many nations, ant that his kings would come out of him.
He was promised that hisdescendants would be as numerous
as the dust of the earth, and as the stars in the heavens. Also
that his descendants would be as numerous as the sand.
Abraham was also promised that a great and mighty
nation would come through him. And that through him
all nations would be blessed.
Abrahams's descendants were to spread to the East,
West, North and South.
Genesis 13:14-17; 15:4-5; 17:1-8; 18:18 & 22:16-18.
God promised Abraham's son Isaac that He would keeps
through him the oaths that He made to his father. This
was because Abraham had kept God's Commandments,
statutes, and laws. Genesis 26:2-5.
Issac's son, Jacob (Israel) was blessed by his father that
his descendants would enjoy the dew from heaven and
the fatness of the earth.
Israel was to receive the blessings of his grandfather,
Israel was to be the father of a multitude of people, as
numerous as the dust. And that his descendants would
spread to the East, West, North, and South.
Israel was also promised that his descendants would
become a great nation and a company of nations.
Genesis 27:26-29; 28:3-4, 13-14; 35:9-15.
These promises by God to Abraham were to be
fulfilled through Isaac, not Ishmael.
Likewise the promises made to Isaac were to come
through Jacob (Israel), not Esau.
This is going to be somewhat lengthy. I must post it
throughout the day during my breaks.
I am trying to make a very important point.
