The BIRTH of ISAAC and the DEPARTURE of HAGAR and ISHMAEL

This HPP is about the birth of Isaac and the departure of Hagar and Ishmael, her son. The LORD came back to visit Sarah as He said He would, and He kept His promise to her. At exactly the time GOD said it would happen, Sarah became pregnant and gave birth to a son for Abraham in his old age.

Abraham named his son Isaac. The father of Isaac did what GOD commanded and circumcised Isaac when he was eight days old. He was 100 years old when his son Isaac was born. Sarah said, “GOD has made me happy, and everyone who hears about this will be happy with me.”

“No one thought that I, Sarah, would be able to have Abraham’s child. But I have given Abraham a son, even though he is aged.” Isaac continued to grow, and soon he was old enough to begin eating solid food. Thus Abraham gave a big party as was the custom and tradition.

I Want Isaac to Have Everything!

Sarah saw Hagar’s son playing with Isaac (Hagar was the Egyptian servant woman who gave birth to Abraham’s first son, Ishmael). Sarah said to Abraham, “Get rid of that slave woman and her son. Send them away! When we die, our son Isaac will get everything we have. I don’t want that servant woman’s son sharing these things with my son Isaac!”

This upset Abraham very much. He was worried about his son Ishmael. But GOD spoke to Abraham, “Don’t worry about the boy and the servant woman. Do what Sarah wants. Your descendants will be those who come through Isaac. But I will also bless the son of your bondwoman. He is your son, so I will make a great nation from his family also.”

Early the next morning Abraham took some food and water and gave them to Hagar. She carried them and left with her boy. She left that place and wandered in the desert of Beersheba.

The Wilderness of Paran


17 And God heard the voice of the lad; and the angel of God called to Hagar out of heaven, and said unto her, What aileth thee, Hagar? fear not; for God hath heard the voice of the lad where he is.

18 Arise, lift up the lad, and hold him in thine hand; for I will make him a great nation.

19 And God opened her eyes, and she saw a well of water; and she went, and filled the bottle with water, and gave the lad drink.

20 And God was with the lad; and he grew, and dwelt in the wilderness, and became an archer.

21 And he dwelt in the wilderness of Paran: and his mother took him a wife out of the land of Egypt.


HISTORY

History: Abraham had two major sons, and a total of eight sons. Isaac was the son GOD promised to Abraham, and by whom the promises were given. Nevertheless, Hagar, Sarah’s bondwoman’s son, Ishmael, was sent away by Abraham at his wife’s charge.

GOD still blessed them and today we still have the Hagarenes and the Ishmaelites (known today collectively as Arabs). They are real people who came from the body or loins of father Abraham. Ishmael went on to also have twelve sons; Nebajoth, Kedar, Adbeel, Mibsam, Mishma, Dumah, Massa, Hadar, Tema, Jetur, Naphish, and Kedemah.

They had towns, castles, and were known as twelve princes according to their nations. As anyone knows today, the Arabs play a monumental role in today’s society and the world!

PROPHECY

Prophecy: Much like in our previous posting on the children of Lot, the Moabites and the Ammonites, the Ishmaelites are written in prophecy also, including “end-time” prophecy. While the Ishmaelites were not as harshly against the children of Israel (in Biblical history), they have participated in the demise of the house of Jacob from the beginning.

Remember, Joseph was sold by his brothers to Ishmaelites, who sold him into Egypt. Again, in Psalm 83, a list of nations or peoples who secretly consulted to remove the name of Israel from remembrance was presented.

Among the top four (Edom, Ishmael, Moab, Hagar), was Ishmael and his mother’s people, the Hagarenes. Most people (and by people, we mean end-time prophesy ministers) believe the world will topple over in a third world war.

They believe a third world war will be between the Arabs and the Jews and Christians; nothing could be further from the truth. You can enroll in our Kingdom of Priests Institute to get a deeper insight into prophetic history, prophecy, and principles of the peoples of the earth.

PRINCIPLE

Principles: There are many in this chapter, primarily, the principle of faithfulness and obeying the ALMIGHTY. When Abraham and Sarah came up with the idea to have a seed through Hagar, the scriptures don’t tell us if GOD was consulted.

Now, years later, Sarah does not want Ishmael to be raised together with her son, Isaac. This desire now pulled Abraham into an uncomfortable position and he sought the LORD. He was commanded to listen to his wife as he did when she presented the idea of having a child via Hagar.

Had they been faithful and obedient to the ALMIGHTY, maybe we do not have an Ishmael today (or in a different form or manner). Another principle is GOD’s word is solid. Sarah had Isaac at the exact time the LORD said she would. We can go to the bank once the ALMIGHTY issues a word.

The LORD also said HE would bless and multiply Ishmael, and today we can see that done on many fronts! Ishmael has been blessed to be very wealthy in oil.

  1. Mensah Mensah

    God does not interfere in our choices because He has given us free will. In the book of Genesis Adam and Eve disobeyed God as a result of the wrong choice and mankind has born the consequences up to now. The same thing happened to Abraham and Sarah after waiting for a very long period of time with no results, they decided what was good for them and the effect of Ishmael coming into this world has become a thorn in the flesh of Christians currently.

    So why will an all-knowing God watch and allow us to make choices knowing surely that the end will bring more harm than good to mankind?

    • That is a great question and observation Mensah. The deeper answer Mensah is that the ALMIGHTY knows the end from the beginning. HE already knows the decisions and outcomes we chose. We’ve already made our life’s decision in the spirit. The human manifestation of life is to show us the decisions we made.

      Our lives are a tape or video of the decisions we made so GOD is blameless in that HE gave us free will and we made these decisions ourselves, good or bad; we overcame or succumbed to the situations and circumstances life presented to us.

      Did we fall to temptation?
      Did we give up before the end?

      Our lives will tell. The LORD will only judge according to HIS law if we did good or evil based on our works. We will have no one to blame, including the LORD.

      Now, why would GOD watch and allow us to make choices knowing surely that the end will bring more harm than good to mankind? Simple!

      Genesis 1
      26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.

      GOD gave man dominion, it is HIS will that man makes and live with the ruling decisions he makes in the earth.

      Genesis 3
      6 And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.

      Man sinned or rebelled and gave that power and dominion to the serpent. Therefore the ALMIGHTY GOD has little choice but to let or allow Adam (mankind) to suffer in HIS decisions until he prays for help, repents, and chooses to follow the GOD of Abraham, Isaac, and Israel via CHRIST.

      I certainly pray this gives some level of clarity for you Mensah.

      Elder Ishe
