Discussion for Genesis 15

    Bro Timothy has a lot of questions. I think he needs to read more of his bible. This story of Abram is just one of GOD'S promises being fulfilled. God is an awesome God and He can not lie. He always keeps His promises. They are on His time not ours. 1 day for us can be a 1000.00 yrs for him. Just keep the faith and know It's Jesus Christ that's coming back for us and only God knows when.

    In verse 6 it says Abram believed God and God counted it to him for righteousness. In verse 8 Abram is questioning the Lord, how is to know of this inheritance, the Lord is very faithful in keeping His promises and showing us when we ask Him things. Praise God:)
  • Jeff, I do not believe the stars are infinite and the bible does not indicate this, it says that they cannot be numbered. Even with our technology today we cannot number the stars or the descendants of Abraham.

    i believe it has one of the greatest promises God gave to man and it teaches us to have faith and hold on to the lords promises for our lives regardless of how hopeless our situation might be
