In the Beginning – The Abrahamic Promise

God’s Covenant Promise – Abraham, Isaac, Jacob

Four thousand years ago, God chose Abraham, a man of faith, through whom God would fulfill His intention to bless “all the nations of the earth.” Three ages of God’s Plan are used in the process: the Jewish Age, the Gospel Age, and the Millennial Age. In these three ages God develops the nation of Israel, the Heavenly Church Class, and restores the World of Mankind to everlasting life…. read more

Abraham, Isaac and Jacob

Deliverance – Joseph, Moses, Joshua

At its core, the Abrahamic Promise and covenant is a story of deliverance: Abraham’s deliverance from the idolatry of Ur, the deliverance of Abraham’s family into a land of their own, and eventually, mankind’s deliverance from the reign of sin and death. But to accomplish this deliverance required a deliverer. God, through the Abrahamic Covenant and its subsequent covenants (Law, New) provide a wealth of information about both this deliverer and the deliverance they would provide… read more

Words, Life, and Work – Isaiah, Micah, Joel, Amos

When Abram obeyed God’s call to come out of Ur of the Chaldees into a new land, God promised him that his willing obedience would lead to a blessing for all people on earth (Genesis 12:3). Almost 2,000 years later, Matthew’s gospel uniquely associated Jesus with Abraham and therefore to this unconditional promise: “The book of the generation of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham” (Matthew 1:1). … read more

Daniel, A Prophet of Hope – An Israelite in Captivity

Examining the book of Daniel in the context of God’s promise to Abraham is an exciting study. His life spanned an extraordinary period in the history of Israel. When taken captive into Babylon, Daniel found himself living his Jewish faith in a Gentile world. This captivity created many challenges for Daniel and his three companions, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah. … read more

Them That Fear My Name – Hosea, Zephaniah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, Zechariah, Malachi

Promises from God such as this are the fact-based evidence that we may use to test our assumptions and to support our commitments to Him. God’s desire expressed by Malachi is that we reverence His name. God invites us to engage him as a scientist (reverence) and then as a child (playfully jump). … read more
