God has a plan for Sarah’s life, and the betrayal by Abram cannot destroy that plan.

Turn to GEN 12:14

Since Sarah as the wife of Abram is included in the Abrahamic covenant, logistical grace demands her protection.

All women, whether they honor the call of God upon their right man or not are given logistical grace to help him fulfill that calling, GEN 2:18, 1CO 11:7.

1CO 11:7 “the man is the image and glory of God; but the woman is the glory of man.”

GEN 2:18 to be a helper [ezer = someone to aid, help, and to respond to the man] suitable for him.

JER 31:22 “The LORD will create a new thing on earth a woman will surround a man.” (NIV)

will encompass = cabab to revolve around, to surround, to walk round about, be about on every side, to encircle, to change direction.

JER 31:22 “The LORD will create a new thing on earth a woman will surround a man.” (NIV)

Logistical grace demands that the beneficiaries of the promises of God be protected for the fulfillment of the promise.

Until the promise is fulfilled nothing can happen to Abram and nothing can happen to Sarah.

In reversionism you actually contend with two factors of judgment instead of one, self-induced misery and divine discipline.

The weakness and cowardice and deception of reversionistic Abram does not remove Sarah from divine protection.

Abram turned against Sarah, but God never turns against the believer.

Turn to ROM 5:8 ROM 8:26 ROM 8:31-32 ROM 8:34

Even the mistakes the Old Testament saints made are for our advantage – 1CO 10:6 “Now these things happened as examples for us, that we should not crave evil things, as they also craved.”

The difficulties and the trials of life are for us or for our own benefit – 2CO 4:17 “For momentary, light affliction is producing for us an eternal weight of glory far beyond all comparison,”

HEB 9:24 “For Christ did not enter a holy place made with hands, a mere copy of the true one, but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us;”

HEB 11:11 “By means of doctrine resident in the soul Sarah considered Him faithful who had promised;”

When believers betray you or turn against you, like Abram did to Sarah, God remains faithful to you and sustains you with His logistical grace.

God has a plan for Sarah’s life, and the betrayal by Abram cannot destroy that plan.

2CO 13:8 “For we can do nothing against the truth, but only for the truth.”

Human weaknesses and failures do not change the plan of God nor do they hinder protection from the Lord, and that even includes divine discipline.

History works for God – not God for history.

Abram in reversionism has treated Pharaoh unjustly while the unbelieving Pharaoh does not treat Abram unjustly.

When life is more important than honor and integrity, than freedom, than the will of God and the word of God, then you are a walking reversionist.

Abram left Ur of the Chaldees as a noble man.

He left Haran and arrived at Shechem, GEN 12:6, the place of spiritual advance and momentum.

He went to Moreh, GEN 12:6, the place of basic doctrine.

He went to Bethel, GEN 12:8, the place of advanced doctrine.

You can be honorable and great one day as a believer, and in a very short time thereafter, disciplined and dishonorable through reversionism.

To make sure that nothing more happened to Abram or Sarah. To make sure that weasel Abram left his country.

Turn to PSA 105:9-15

PSA 121:7 “The Lord will protect you from all evil; He will keep your soul.”

ECC 7:12 “For wisdom is protection {just as} money is protection. But the advantage of knowledge is that wisdom preserves the lives of its possessors.” 2TH 3:3 “But the Lord is faithful, and He will strengthen and protect you from the evil.”

1PE 1:5 “You are protected by the power of God through faith for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.”
