Wesley's Notes for Genesis 15:18


15:18 In that same day, the Lord made a covenant with Abram, saying, Unto thy seed have I given this land - He had said before, To thy seed will I give this land, but here he saith, I have given it; that is, I have given the promise, the charter is sealed and delivered, and cannot be disanulled. The possession is as sure in due time, as if it were now actually delivered to them. In David's time and Solomon's their jurisdiction extended to the utmost of these limits, #2Ch 9:26|. And it was their own fault that they were not sooner and longer in possession of all these territories. They forfeited their right by their sins, and by their own sloth and cowardice kept themselves out of possession. The present occupants are named, because their number and strength and long prescription, should be no hindrance to the accomplishment of this promise in its season; and to magnify God's love to Abram and his seed, in giving to that one nation the possession of many nations.

    Cole:Matthew 24:29 is The Sixth Seal in Revelation/ the four seals have been opened: Revelation6:8--- and power was given unto them over one fourth of the earth,to kill with sword, hunger and death and beast of the earth. That's what's going on the other side of the world. Tribulation and persecution of believers and nonbeliever,jailed,tortured,starved,beheaded
    Wars and rumors of wars! Birth pain

    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.
