Wesley's Notes for Genesis 15:14


15:14 That nation whom they shall serve, even the Egyptians, will I judge - This points at the plagues of Egypt, by which God not only constrained the Egyptians to release Israel, but punished them for all the hardships they had put upon them. The punishing of persecutors is the judging of them; it is a righteous thing with God, and a particular act of justice, to recompense tribulation to those that trouble his people. 3. The deliverance of Abram's seed out of Egypt. And afterwards shall they come out with great substance - Either after they have been afflicted 400 years, or, after the Egyptians are judged and plagued.

    Verse 6: Jehovah God viewed Abraham's trust and faith in him as something righteous. We must have a strong faith in God in order to be considered righteous in his eyes.

    Hi Lisa, I am praying for you immediately, but when you pray talk to your god in private as him to give you wisdom and try praying at least three times. and fast off something you love one to three days, so the enemy will flee from you and the most high can have the space in you to do his work, this is why this scripture says no man can serve two masters, stay strong. Love peace and happiness.

    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.
