7-6-2017 The Seed Promised To Abraham

“For they are not all Israel who are of Israel, nor are they all children because they are the seed of Abraham; but, ‘In Isaac your seed shall be called.’ That is, those who are the children of the flesh, these are not the children of God; but the children of the promise are counted as the seed” (Romans 9:6-8 NKJV). Everyone who thinks Jews, or Muslims, are physical descendants of Abraham and entitled to promises made to them are seriously mistaken. First, no one can prove that they are physical descendants, since all the genealogical records were destroyed when Romans destroyed Jerusalem in A. D. 70. Secondly, God’s promise was not about Jews or Muslims, but to Christians. “For you are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus. For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ…And if you are Christ’s, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise” (Galatians 3:26-29 NKJV).
