God’s word 02/01/2022.
Hi viewers, so today would continue the teachings on God’s word, and you all remember that I stopped at Genesis 24, and still on chapter 24, and you all still remember that I talked about Abraham’s servant who went in search of a wife for his master, and then he found Rebecca, the daughter of Laban, and then Laban, I have talked about him before, and you all remembered the story of the ringstrained spotted and speckled goats, ok so wouldn’t go there now, and then I would begin from vs 57.
Genesis 24 vs 57.
And they said, we will call the damsel and enquire at her mouth. And they called Rebekah and said unto her, oh ! I love this part, wilt thou go with this man? And she said, I will go, and this is the question that is always asked before giving a daughters hand in marriage, and then it is asked because if you say yes, and then you go with this man, you wouldn’t come back and give complain, and then when Rebekah answered and said, I will go.
Vs 59, and they sent away Rebekah their sister, and her nurse, and Abraham’s servant and his men and so it was.
And so the next part of the scripture that I want to talk about is Genesis 25, but I wouldn’t read vs 1, 2, 3 and 4, because it talked about Abraham taking another wife, and then she had children for him, it’s the begat, this begat this, and that begat that hahaha, you guys wouldn’t like to read it, now let me show you why it was written, in vs 5, and Abraham gave all that he had to Isaac, this was why the begat was talked about, inorderwards, the bible is trying to explain that even though Abraham married another woman, and that Egyptian woman had the first son for Abraham, still all of Abraham’s wealth was for Isaac, none of his wealth was for any of the women.
Then vs 6, but unto the sons of the concubines, which Abraham had, Abraham gave gifts, and sent them away from Isaac his son while he yet lived Eastward unto the east country.
Now when we read the history of Abraham, Isaac was the only son that he had in the sight of God, he had no other children, and that was why we had the beginning scripture which was Genesis 25 from vs 1, 2, 3, talking about the begat from another woman, and then even with all of these children that was given to Abraham, none of them had the inheritance. But still today, we have people maybe their wives didn’t give birth early, and then they go for another woman who gave them a fist child, maybe a son, and then when eventually their wives give them a child, still they give very major things or wealth that they have to this first son or child from another woman, all because of their tradition, well the bible is saying that Abraham gave all that he had to his son Isaac because this was the son of his inheritance. So would stop here.
