Abraham's Seed:

"The Stars of the Heavens"


The Spirit being the blessing of the promise by faith in Christ made to Abraham. Christianity, Judaism, and Islam are taught to be rooted in the Abrahamic covenant.

I believe we are all one body in Christ, the head and not the tail; set apart.

 

Abraham, often referred to as the patriarch of numerous nations, is a figure of immense importance in both religious and historical narratives. His life story is a tapestry of divine promises, unwavering faith, and abundant blessings. One of the most striking promises made to Abraham was that his descendants would be as countless as the stars in the sky. In this blog post, we delve into the profound symbolism of Abraham's progeny and its connection to the blessing of the promise through faith in Christ.



The Divine Assurance to Abraham

Abraham, a paragon of faith, was the recipient of a divine assurance from God. In Genesis 15:5, God led Abraham outside and said, "Look up at the heavens and count the stars—if indeed you can count them. So shall your offspring be." This assurance was not merely about physical progeny but also carried a deeper spiritual connotation. The word, the promise, the covenant are the gospel that was preached to Abraham. The gospel is the covenant, the covenant is the promise, and the promise is the word spoken by God. The gospel is a matter of the New Testament. It is important to realize the New Testament is a continuation, or repetition of Gods promise to Abraham. This promise is permanent.


God's promise to Abraham was given first [Genesis]. The law came 430 years later [Exodus]. The law was intended to be temporary and cannot annul the promise. The law was added because of mans transgressions and was not in the origination of God's economy. The law is secondary to God's economy. The law kept Gods chosen people in bondage under its custody until faith came. Faith was not revealed until Christ came.



The Symbolism of Stars

Stars have perennially captivated mankind, symbolizing beauty, guidance, and awe. In the context of Abraham's progeny, the stars signify the enormity and abundance of his descendants. Just as the stars light up the night sky, Abraham's descendants were destined to bring illumination and blessings to the world. God's new economy is love, tender care, compassion, and sympathy. Christ is divine righteousness; inner law of divine life and the capacity of this life to know God.



Faith in Christ

The Apostle Paul, in his epistle to the Galatians, elucidates the significance of Abraham's progeny in relation to faith in Christ. He asserts that the promise made to Abraham was ultimately actualized through Jesus Christ. Galatians 3:16 states, "The promises were spoken to Abraham and to his seed. Scripture does not say 'and to seeds,' referring to many, but 'and to your seed,' referring to one, who is Christ."



Inheritance through Faith

Paul further underscores that through faith in Christ, believers become part of Abraham's spiritual progeny and inherit the blessings promised to him. Galatians 3:29 states, "If you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise." This implies that anyone who places their faith in Christ becomes part of the spiritual lineage of Abraham and partakes in the blessings of the promise.



The Blessing of the Promise

The blessing of the promise made to Abraham extends beyond physical descendants to all who have faith in Christ. This promise encompasses salvation, forgiveness, reconciliation with God, and the hope of eternal life. It is a blessing that transcends temporal, cultural, and national boundaries, enveloping all who believe.



Living as Abraham's Progeny

As believers, we are called to live as Abraham's progeny, embracing the promises and blessings conferred upon us through faith in Christ. Just as the stars radiate brightly in the night sky, we are called to be a beacon in the world, reflecting God's love, grace, and truth. We are to disseminate the good news of salvation and extend the blessings of the promise to others.



Abraham's progeny, symbolized by the celestial constellations, representing the enormity and abundance of his descendants. Through faith in Christ, believers become part of this spiritual lineage and inherit the blessings of the promise. As we live in Abraham's progeny, we are called to be a beacon in the world, sharing the blessings and promises of God with others. May we embrace our identity as children of Abraham and shine brightly, illuminating the world with God's love and grace.
