Unto Thy Seed Will I Give This Land

Good day once again. The title, “Unto thy seed will I give this land,” was a statement made to Abram. In all practicality, this was, has to be, must be, speaking of a specific landmass.

Everyone reading has an imagination. Let us all imagine for one moment that the Almighty was speaking to our great, great, great, great, great grandfather. The Almighty promised him land, the land of Canaan. As “Christians,” would we, should we, overlook this because we are focused on all things spiritual?

That would not make sense. That would be very irrational, imbecilic even. Yet, in a serpentine way, this is exactly what the average and below-average “Christian” biblical person and religious man and woman does.

We send all things biblical into a spiritual line dance and dance the time away.

In the statement, “Unto thy seed will I give this land,” a few important things stand out. First off, Abram was in the land of Canaan at the time. To your seed is the beginning of the statement. Abram’s seed, and once again, I’m not attempting to be rude or divisive, but it does not say, “Unto thy ‘spiritual’ seed will I give this land.”

The land is promised to Abram’s seed (I almost wrote his physical seed, but it does not say that either). Abram’s seed. Who was the seed of Abram?

There is Ishmael, born in Genesis 16:15; then there is Isaac, born in Genesis 21:5. Then Abram had Zimran, Jokshan, Medan, Midian, Ishbak, and Shuah in Genesis 25:2. That would be a total of eight sons, by three different women, Hagar, his wife’s maid, Sara, his wife, and Ketura, his wife after the passing of Sara.

These sons are the seed of Abram.

The Melchizedek Priesthood Order was passed through his son Isaac, the son of the covenants. Nevertheless, all of these would be his sons. They are the ones who possess the birthright to the statement by the Almighty. “Unto thy seed will I give this land,” they have a stake in “this land,” the land of Canaan.

As one continues to read the Book of Genesis, specifically the stories about Abram and the covenants, especially the covenants about the land are repeated.

Genesis 13, verse 12, “Abram dwelled in the land of Canaan…

14, And the Almighty said unto Abram, after that Lot was separated from him, Lift up now thine eyes, and look from the place where thou art northward, and southward, and eastward, and westward: 15, For all the land which thou seest, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed for ever.

Once again, the reiteration of the land of Canaan being given to Abram and his seed as an everlasting possession is once again stated.

Abram did not respond like a so-called American slave in the 1800s saying, “Sorry Lordie, I’s going to heaven, and won’t be needing no land hea, Lordie!”

Sorry, to whomever my comic relief offended.

The land Abram saw from Canaan to the north, south, east, and west is for him and his seed in perpetuity. The Almighty also promised to make his seed as plenteous as the dust of the earth.

Some years had passed and Abram still did not have any children, just servants. Once again, I think it is fair to say, the Almighty should have addressed Abram’s childless concerns by saying something to this degree:

My son, it doesn’t matter about actual children, what’s important are spiritual children. These spiritual children can come from any nation, it doesn’t matter. Do you understand?

Well, Abram still has not had children from his bowels as of yet. The Almighty again, in chapter 15 of Genesis, promised him as many children as the stars in the Heavens. These children will come from Abram’s own bowels. At that same time, the Almighty made a covenant with Abram.

This is what was said:

Unto thy seed have I given this land, from the river of Egypt to the great river, the river Euphrates.”

There is so much land promised and many children. For a world filled to the brim with participants from the “Abrahamic” religions, it is amazing the lands and people of Abram’s seed are not extensively sought after or sought for.

Genesis chapter 16 invites a child of Abram, Ishmael. He has a seed from his own bowels now. However, a distinction is made in chapter 17!

Genesis 17:6 And I will make thee exceeding fruitful, and I will make nations of thee, and kings shall come out of thee. 7, And I will establish my covenant between me and thee and thy seed after thee in their generations for an everlasting covenant, to be a God unto thee, and to thy seed after thee. 8, And I will give unto thee, and to thy seed after thee, the land wherein thou art a stranger, all the land of Canaan, for an everlasting possession; and I will be their God.

Abram’s offspring will be very fruitful, having babies like rabbits.

His offspring will be broken up into nations with their own kings, all of which come out of Abram. These are things the average “Christian” Muslim or “Jew,” could care less about or are not emphasizing enough in their teachings.

The Almighty established His covenant between Abram and Himself, also with Abram’s offspring (from his bowels) who came after him. The covenant is an everlasting covenant between those three parties: the Creator, Abram, and Abram’s seed. The part of the covenant that recipients will receive from the Almighty is the land where Abram was a stranger. This is all the land of Canaan, and it will be theirs as an everlasting possession. On top of this, the Almighty will be their Ruler.

The practicalness of owning land (called real estate) and having children enough to fill the land into a nation is what we are talking about.

Do you read the Bible this way or another way?

One last thing before I put the pen down and allow my thoughts to simmer in for the evening. In chapter 22 of Genesis, when Abram nearly killed Isaac, an angel of the Almighty called from Heaven and said, and I paraphrase:

“I will bless you and in multiplying, I will multiply your seed like the stars of heaven and like the sand on the sea shore. Your seed will possess the gate of his enemies, and in your seed will all the nations of the earth be blessed because you have obeyed my voice (Genesis 22:17).”

In addition to the land of Canaan, the seed of Abram will also take possession of the gates of their enemies. Christianity, Islam, and Judaism sprang from these foundations.

Are we supposed to overlook these and move on to the by-and-by?

And if we are supposed to look into it, is this a light matter we brush across? And are we supposed to take anyone’s word that they are the children of “Abraham” or Abram? Or should we cause people to “bring receipts?”

The way I’m reading it, it appears very serious, and I would want receipts. Let’s hang it up for now.

Power be with you.
