    My point of view on this scripture is that God kept his promise to Abraham even after he went and sinned with Hagar. Now I know that Sarah influence Abraham to go and make a child with her because she could not see how God was going to do it considering her situation and her age. This reminds me of myself and how were compare ourselves to our parents because we think that how it should be but God.

    V. 21 - As many times as I've read this chap. - I just now noticed v. 21 - God named 'Isaac' before he was born.

    It is awesome that we are worshiping a covenant-keeping God and sad that humans falter in keeping their side of the bargain. The redemption plan of God, a further attestation of the covenant, to keep snatching us from the jaws of everlasting death by sending His Son Jesus to shed His Precious Blood for the remission of our sins still avails for whosoever will.

    TO AWAL - GEN. 17:10; GALATIANS 5:2 -- NO CONTRADICTION; THE O.T. WAS A DIFFERENT DISPENSATION OF TIME FROM THE N.T.THE O.T. LAWS WERE PHYSICAL - A 'SHADOW' OF THE N.T. 'GRACE' OF GOD'S SPIRITUAL LAWS. THE O.T. LAWS COULD NOT SAVE US; THEY JUST 'ROLLED BACK' THE PEOPLE'S SINS FOR ONE YEAR, THEN ALL THE SACRIFICISES HAD TO BE DONE AGAIN. BUT THE CIRCUMCISION ONLY ONCE.
