Genesis 17: The Covenant with Abraham and Sarah

Genesis 17: The Covenant with Abraham and Sarah: When Abram was 90 years of age, the LORD visited him with a proposal; GOD gave the Covenant of the Circumcision on the 8th day to Abram. His name was changed; he went from Abram to Abraham as well as Sarai to Sarah.

He was promised to have a multitude of kings and nations come through him, he would receive the land of the strangers he was living with (Canaan), and mostly it would be an everlasting covenant. The token or signature of the covenant was and is the physical circumcision of the man rod, and spiritual circumcision of the heart of every male.

Sarah would also be blessed, she will become the mother of nations and the mother of kings. The covenant with Abraham was announced to be passed through Isaac and not Ishmael. Ishmael would be blessed, but the covenant belonged to Isaac; everyone in Abraham’s house was circumcised that day (Genesis 17).

Genesis 17: The Covenant with Abraham and Sarah

Takeaways:

Principle: Covenants, especially covenants of GOD are solid and will be kept by GOD if we keep our side. The covenant of circumcision is still a necessity today.

History: Abram is the father of the faithful who lived in a land he was a stranger, and the land was promised to him. His very own son Isaac was promised as a child for his posterity.

Prophecy: The children of Abraham are all blessed. They will benefit from the blessings and covenants made with their forefather. The Ishmaelites are a lineage of kings to Abraham, but more prominently, the Israelites are the covenanted lineage of kings and priests to Abraham and Sarah.

From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand. The disciples asked, “Lord, wilt thou at this time restore again the kingdom to Israel?” And ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests and a holy nation. These are the words which thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel.
