    faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of god

    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.
  • Bro. Timothy for verse 13
    This is an amazingly beautiful scripture. It is good for us to "KNOW" this for a "surety" Who is talking to Abraham? How can He be so sure that this will and did happen? Who are the descendants of Abraham? Who controls this land? What does strange mean? What's so strange about this land? Who are the ONLY people that have been enslaved to a cruel slave master for 400 years? Who is the slave master? What did they do that was considered "cruel"? Where did the slaves come from? Did the cruel slave master change their names, language, religion, diet, culture, God? Were they allowed to read or write? What year did they become slaves? What year marked the end of the 400 years? Why didn't they just leave? NOW... WHO is suppose to come? Where is HE coming from? What is HE going to do when HE gets HERE?
