How the Abrahamic covenant relates to the problems in the Middle East and the attacks upon America.

This is the system used so commonly in Jewish writing called retrospective exposition.

GEN 12:1 Now JHWH [Jesus Christ] had spoken to Abram, “Go with reference to yourself from your land, and from your relatives, and from the place of your birth, to a land which I will cause you to see;”

Abrahamic covenant = an unconditional covenant between God as party of the first part in favor of Abraham and his descendants as the party of the second part.

The temporal and eternal aspects of this covenant guarantee Israel a permanent national existence, a perpetual title to the land of promise, and material and spiritual blessings through Christ.

This covenant also guaranteed Gentile nations a share in these blessings, GEN 12:3.

It all began when Abraham became a Jew at age 99; circumcision was the sign, GEN 12:1-3; GEN 13:15-16;GEN 15:18; GEN 22:15-18; GEN 26:3-4; EXO 6:2-8.

Surah 2:140 Or do ye say that Abraham, Ishmael, Isaac, Jacob and the Tribes were Jews or Christians? Do you think ye know better than Allah. Ah! who is more unjust than those who conceal the testimony they have from Allah.

Abraham became a Jew at age 99, GEN 17:1.

Hadith -Mohammed’s teaching: Allah hath commanded me to fight against the Christians, the Jews, and the pagans until they submit to Islam or be killed.

2PE 1:21 was not made by an act of human will, but men moved by the Holy Spirit spoke from God.

Surah 2:124 And remember that Abraham was tried by his Lord with certain commands, which he fulfilled: He said: “I will make thee an Imam to the Nations. He pleaded: “And also (Imams) from my offspring!” He answered: “But My Promise is not within the reach of evil-doers.”

ECC 1:9 So, there is nothing new under the sun.

The Abrahamic Covenant also defines the Jewish race as the citizens of the first and last client nation in history.

Abraham’s adjustment to the justice of God and the fact that God is pleased.

Abraham had believed in TLJC as his personal Lord and Savior in Ur of the Chaldeans, but he also believed that what God had promised (he and Sarah would have a son), God was also able to perform.

The demonstration of Abraham’s faith was submission to the ritual of circumcision.

GEN 15:6 “Then he believed in the Lord [Jehovah]; and He [the Lord] reckoned or credited it to him as righteousness.” LUK 20:37 “Even Moses showed, in the passage about the burning bush, where he calls the Lord the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob.”

Surah 2:126 – Abraham believed in Allah and those who don’t will be driven to the torment of fire – an evil destination (indeed)!

GEN 12:1-3 – in setting up the contract, a specific people were involved; the original presentation of Abraham’s paragraph included both race and nation.

A part of the real estate promise is given for the first time in the Abrahamic Covenant, GEN 13:14-16; 15:18-21.

During the Millennium, the land of Israel will extend from Turkey to Syria in the north, west to the Mediterranean Sea, south to East Africa, to include all of Saudi Arabia, and east to the Euphrates River.
