Who Gets the Promise?

Who is the promise?

When God makes a promise the faithful cling to it. When the promise is not understood our life of faith can be a struggle. Legal promises are called contracts made between people. They cannot be changed unless all parties agree, but they can be broken. God will never break His promises. So, let’s see who His promises were given to and why.

“Then the angel of the Lord called to Abraham a second time from heaven, and said, ‘By Myself I have sworn, declares the Lord, because you have done this thing and have not withheld your son, your only son, indeed I will greatly bless you, and I will greatly multiply your seed as the stars of the heavens and as the sand, which is on the seashore; and your seed shall possess the gate of their enemies. And in your seed, all the nations of the earth shall be blessed, because you have obeyed My voice.” (Genesis 22:15-19 NASB)

Apostle Paul explained that Abraham’s seed is Christ.

“Now the promises were spoken to Abraham and to his seed. He does not say, ‘And to seeds,’ as one would in referring to many, but rather as in referring to one, “And to your seed,’ that is, Christ.” (Galatians 3:16 NASB) 

Guess who the promise is

“I will greatly multiply your (descendants) seed.” To believe in Jesus is God fulfilling His promise to Abraham. Believers are his descendants. Rejoice in your salvation, God will never ever break a promise.
