Discussion for Genesis 13:15

  • Timothy Wayne George on Genesis 13:15
    Abram is given the promise that all the land that he can see, Jehovah God will give it to his seed forever. The promise was to Isaac, as he was the promised child to Sarah. In Christ we are the seed of Abraham by faith, and thus decedents of the promise. So this alone is the basis to resolve the Arab and Israeli conflict. When we are born again in the Lord Jesus Christ we are joint heirs with Him, and will receive the blessings that God promised to Abraham. The blood of Christ has made us alive, to a new hope, and covenant. This will come to pass will the kingdoms of this world, will become the kingdoms of our Lord, and Savior Jesus Christ.
