A New Look at the Abrahamic Covenant

Part 3 – The Abrahamic Covenant

GENESIS 17:7

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.

Here we see that this covenant is an “everlasting covenant” notice, “to be a God unto thee and to thy seed after thee.” Now if it was God’s plan ‘down the road’ for Him to ‘open this up’ to every other nation and people, why would He even say this to Abraham? Why do the Scriptures say over and over again (Old and New Testaments) that He is “the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob”? Because they and their descendants are the only ones God has made this covenant with.

With God making it an everlasting covenant, it did not end when Abraham died, and it has never changed. This covenant was only for the seed of Abraham and it will never end. God told Abraham, “and thy seed after thee in their generations for an everlasting covenant, to be God unto thee and to thy seed after thee.” And then He gives him the promise again concerning the land and institutes the sign of the covenant, circumcision.

GENESIS 17:15-17

15 And God said unto Abraham, As for Sarai thy wife, thou shalt not call her name Sarai, but Sarah shall her name be. 16 And I will bless her, and give thee a son also of her: yea, I will bless her, and she shall be a mother of nations; kings of people shall be of her. 17 Then Abraham fell upon his face, and laughed, and said in his heart, Shall a child be born unto him that is an hundred years old? and shall Sarah, that is ninety years old, bear?

Yahweh then changes Sarai’s name to Sarah to reflect that she will become the mother of many nations. Then Abraham was laughing so hard he fell on his face, because of how much more ridiculous this was becoming as they were both getting older, not having children. But God keeps adding more and more details, and making it more and more impossible. For remember already, Abraham with the okay of his wife Sarah previously had a child by her Egyptian handmaid Hagar (Genesis chapter 16) since his last encounter with Yahweh. Hagar was an Adamite, for the Egyptians are in the Genesis 10 Adamic nations through the line of Noah’s son, Ham thru “Mizraim” (Genesis 10:6). Much later, God would give Egypt up (Isaiah 43:3) to the Nubians (or blacks). But at this point and even beyond the days of Joseph and Moses, Egypt was still a pure branch of the Adamic nations.

GENESIS 17:18

18 And Abraham said unto God, O that Ishmael might live before thee!

So here we go again with Abraham trying to help God out. Ishmael was from a bondwoman, but Yahweh’s perfect plan was that the promise would come through the freewoman, Sarah.

GALATIANS 4:22-23

22 For it is written, that Abraham had two sons, the one of the bondwoman, and the other by the freewoman. 23 But he who was of the bondwoman was born after the flesh; but he of the freewoman was by promise.

Once again, its going to be exactly God’s way and Abraham is finding that out. God’s ways are not our ways, His thoughts are not our thoughts. But His ways and His thought are always right and perfect. The Scriptures express to us His thoughts and His ways. If our ideas conflict with the Scriptures then our ideas are what’s wrong. We can’t squeeze anyone else into this covenant, any more than the Friend of God Abraham could squeeze his own son Ishmael into it from the very beginning.

GENESIS 17:19-22

19 And God said, Sarah thy wife shall bear thee a son indeed; and thou shalt call his name Isaac: and I will establish my covenant with him for an everlasting covenant, and with his seed after him. 20 And as for Ishmael, I have heard thee: Behold, I have blessed him, and will make him fruitful, and will multiply him exceedingly; twelve princes shall he beget, and I will make him a great nation. 21 But my covenant will I establish with Isaac, which Sarah shall bear unto thee at this set time in the next year. 22 And he left off talking with him, and God went up from Abraham.

Do you see that? This covenant was so particular and exclusive, it not only had to come thru the bowels of Abraham, but from the womb of Sarah! Once again confirming evidence, that all of this pertains to a literal, physical seed and offspring. Ishmael will not be the heir, nor can he even be a partaker of this covenant, though he was an actual son of Abraham. For he was not a son of the promise: the heir would be named Laughter the Hebrew meaning of the name Isaac. Even the name of the heir to these promises, would reflect that this was a covenant that dealt with a physical seed. Everytime they would hear the name Isaac it would remind them of how Abraham and Sarah brought forth this son under the most peculiar of circumstances. It all had to be done exactly God’s way and He has not changed. Your Father did it this way so that you would recognize how much He loves you, to go to all of this trouble to preserve you and to help you understand. And notice God didn’t hang around as if to say: “This is not up for discussion”- He departed, leaving Abraham with a lot to think about.

Let’s recap: It appears out of nowhere God comes to this man; Yahweh initiates this whole thing with Abraham. Abraham is having personal, one-on-one conversations with the God Who created this universe. First Abraham tries to squeeze his steward in, now he tries to squeeze his son by the bondwoman in, and God refuses any changes to His foreordained perfect plan. God tells Abraham how it is and now He’s gone.

Now think about the things that are being taught today. Who do these experts think they are, coming along thousands of years later saying God’s plan has changed? Look at the shape things are in! Wouldn’t we be better off if we’d shut our mouths and listen to God?! “Yea let God be true and every man a liar” the Apostle Paul said. This is the way it is whether we want to accept it or not; it’s the nature of this covenant. Abraham could have tried to argue with God, “Well that’s not fair, Eliezer’s a good Adamite” or “Well, all you said was that the heir had to come from my bowels, why isn’t Ishmael good enough, he’s my own flesh and blood?” but Abraham didn’t do that. He kept his mouth shut and believed Yahweh. He repented of his ‘bright ideas’ and God called him His friend. This is what t comes down to: do we want to be a friend of the world, or do we want to be a friend of God.

GENESIS 18:1-2, 9-15

1 And the LORD appeared unto him in the plains of Mamre: and he sat in the tent door in the heat of the day; 2 And he lift up his eyes and looked, and, lo, three men stood by him: and when he saw them, he ran to meet them from the tent door, and bowed himself toward the ground,

9 And they said unto him, Where is Sarah thy wife? And he said, Behold, in the tent. 10 And he said, I will certainly return unto thee according to the time of life; and, lo, Sarah thy wife shall have a son. And Sarah heard it in the tent door, which was behind him. 11 Now Abraham and Sarah were old and well stricken in age; and it ceased to be with Sarah after the manner of women. 12 Therefore Sarah laughed within herself, saying, After I am waxed old shall I have pleasure, my lord being old also? 13 And the LORD said unto Abraham, Wherefore did Sarah laugh, saying, Shall I of a surety bear a child, which am old? 14 Is anything too hard for the LORD? At the time appointed I will return unto thee, according to the time of life, and Sarah shall have a son. 15 Then Sarah denied, saying, I laughed not; for she was afraid. And he said, Nay; but thou didst laugh.

The attention, seems to be shifting toward Sarah. In verse 11 we recognize, Sarah was no longer having her menstrual cycle. But God had appointed the specific time for all of this to take place and nothing could stop it. Sarah laughed, then denied it, but God knew she laughed; that’s what He wanted her to do, as you will see.

GENESIS 21:1-12

1 And the LORD visited Sarah as he had said, and the LORD did unto Sarah as he had spoken. 2 For Sarah conceived, and bare Abraham a son in his old age, at the set time of which God had spoken to him. 3 And Abraham called the name of his son that was born unto him, whom Sarah bare to him, Isaac. 4 And Abraham circumcised his son Isaac being eight days old, as God had commanded him. 5 And Abraham was an hundred years old, when his son Isaac was born unto him. 6 And Sarah said, God hath made me to laugh, so that all that hear will laugh with me. 7 And she said, Who would have said unto Abraham, that Sarah should have given children suck? for I have born him a son in his old age. 8 And the child grew, and was weaned: and Abraham made a great feast the same day that Isaac was weaned. 9 And Sarah saw the son of Hagar the Egyptian, which she had born unto Abraham, mocking. 10 Wherefore she said unto Abraham, Cast out this bondwoman and her son: for the son of this bondwoman shall not be heir with my son, even with Isaac. 11 And the thing was very grievous in Abraham’s sight because of his son. 12 And God said unto Abraham, Let it not be grievous in thy sight because of the lad, and because of thy bondwoman; in all that Sarah hath said unto thee, hearken unto her voice; for in Isaac shall thy seed be called.

God always keeps His Word! That’s why it’s so important that we learn and understand this Abrahamic Covenant. God is not one bit concerned about keeping all these ‘wack-job’ interpretations we find going on in modern ‘Christianity’ today. He’s made it plain what we must do; learn the Scriptures and agree with Him. If this means nothing to you then you will remain in ‘left field.’ Remember, II Thess. 2:1-11 tells us that those who do not love the truth will be sent a strong delusion by God Himself.

100 is an easy number for us all to remember- that’s exactly how old God decreed Abraham would be when Isaac would be born, at the end of verse 2: “at the set time of which God had spoken to him.” Yahweh will always have His way! And the more impossible and ridiculous it seems, the more glory it brings Him! We can’t help but get tickled when we hear of a hundred-year-old man and a ninety-year-old woman having a baby- but it happened. And it happened that way so that you would recognize that this was the beginning of something special. And the white race is the result of it, even thousands of years later. Don’t settle for some second-hand, manufactured ‘faith’. Receive the truth, love the truth of Almighty God Who keeps all His promises. God brought forth Isaac, God brought forth ‘Laughter,’ through the hundred-year-old Abraham and the ninety-year-old Sarah. Why did He do it this way? Because He’s God and His plan is perfect.

This exclusive, everlasting, irrevocable, unconditional covenant that God made with Abraham by swearing an oath was a covenant that pertained only to the physical seed of Abraham and Sarah, alone. God went out of His way for us to know this. This establishes the overall scope of God’s plan of salvation; there’s nothing like this in all of the Scriptures. After Sarah dies, Abraham will marry Katurah, and have other children. But even they are not any part of this covenant, “for (only) in Isaac shall thy seed be called”, once again the Anglo-Sax-sons, Isaac’s sons (Genesis 21:12). This is exactly what the Apostle Paul re-iterates all the way down to Jacob:

ROMANS 9:1-13

1 I say the truth in Christ, I lie not, my conscience also bearing me witness in the Holy Ghost, 2 That I have great heaviness and continual sorrow in my heart. 3 For I could wish that myself were accursed from Christ for my brethren, my kinsmen according to the flesh: 4 Who are Israelites; to whom pertaineth the adoption, and the glory, and the covenants, and the giving of the law, and the service of God, and the promises; 5 Whose are the fathers, and of whom as concerning the flesh Christ came, who is over all, God blessed for ever. Amen. 6 Not as though the word of God hath taken none effect. For they are not all Israel, which are of Israel: 7 Neither, because they are the seed of Abraham, are they all children: but, In Isaac shall thy seed be called. 8 That is, They which are the children of the flesh, these are not the children of God: but the children of the promise are counted for the seed. 9 For this is the word of promise, At this time will I come, and Sara shall have a son. 10 And not only this; but when Rebecca also had conceived by one, even by our father Isaac; 11 (For the children being not yet born, neither having done any good or evil, that the purpose of God according to election might stand, not of works, but of him that calleth;) 12 It was said unto her, The elder shall serve the younger. 13 As it is written, Jacob have I loved, but Esau have I hated.

If none of this matters now, why is it practically the main point of what the Apostle Paul has to say in his letter to the Romans?! All of this only pertains to Israel. Paul anticipates that there would be those who would say, “Well, that’s not fair”:

ROMANS 9:14-16

14 What shall we say then? Is there unrighteousness with God? God forbid. 15 For he saith to Moses, I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion. 16 So then it is not of him that willeth, nor of him that runneth, but of God that sheweth mercy.

Stop questioning God and start being more thankful for His mercy. Here are more Scripture concerning this special relationship Yahweh God only has with Israel:

PSALMS 105:6

6 O ye seed of Abraham his servant, ye children of Jacob his chosen.

PALMS 130:7-8

7 Let Israel hope in the LORD: for with the LORD there is mercy, and with him is plenteous redemption. 8 And he shall redeem Israel from all his iniquities.

ISAIAH 54:5

5 For thy Maker is thine husband; the LORD of hosts is his name; and thy Redeemer the Holy One of Israel; The God of the whole earth shall he be called.

JEREMIAH 3:14

14 Turn, O backsliding children, saith the LORD; for I am married unto you: and I will take you one of a city, and two of a family, and I will bring you to Zion.

The truth will never be popular, it will never be marketable, especially in this multicultural society. God has allowed the world to become the way it is to test us, to see if we love Him most, to see if we will remain faithful. Our goal must be to agree with the Scriptures and trust Him over everyone else, just like, in a marriage relationship. Just like a husband chooses his bride and makes an oath of love and faithfulness to her alone, Yahweh God chose Israel as His Bride, and He will not marry another, no matter how hard judeo Christianity tries to force others in. God has kept His vows regardless of what lies men may invent.

ISAIAH 41:8-9

8 But thou, Israel, art my servant, Jacob whom I have chosen, the seed of Abraham my friend. 9 Thou whom I have taken from the ends of the earth, and called thee from the chief men thereof, and said unto thee, Thou art my servant; I have chosen thee, and not cast thee away.

To what extent was Yahweh God obligated to keep this covenant?

HEBREWS 2:16-17

16 For verily he took not on him the nature of angels; but took on him the seed of Abraham. 17 Wherefore in all things it behooved him to be made like unto his brethren, that he might be a merciful and faithful high priest in things pertaining to God, to make reconciliation for the sins of the people.

God was so adamant about keeping this covenant, that He was willing to make reconciliation for His people thru the shedding of His own blood, through His own death in Adamic flesh, in the body of an Israelite seed of Abraham. It’s not the New Covenant but the Renewed Covenant. It’s the renewing of the same everlasting covenant Yahweh made with Abraham. Who are our fathers? If you are white, more than likely, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. For where you come from does affect where you’re going, according to the Scriptures.

REFLECTION

All we have presented, is the Scriptures. What the Old Testament conceals, the New Testament reveals. Yahweh God never made any similar covenant with anyone in the world except Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and his descendants. We cannot change God’s plan, and as Israelites, we shouldn’t want to. God says, He wants our hearts to be turned to our children and for the hearts of our children to be turned to their fathers. Therefore this message needs to be spread to our people, far and wide.
