As Abraham responds to his servant’s question as to whether he should take Abraham’s son, Isaac from the land where he was dwelling, should the woman whom he sought as the bride of Isaac, refuse to come back with him to their land, Abraham, tells his servant that the LORD God who took him out of his father’s house, from the land of his family (kindred) had promised to give unto him the land and that the LORD God would send his angel before his servant so that the servant will be successful in his mission.
The Seed of Abraham is identified to be non other than Jesus Christ himself (Galatians 3:16) and the Bible records that the LORD God made Jesus ruler over all (the lands – not only in this world but in the world to come) and put all things under his feet (Ephesians 1:22). The promise to Abraham comes true in Jesus.
Points to ponder:
Unto the Son of God, the Seed of Abraham, is given all the land and his commission to each one of us who believe is, “Go ye therefore, into ALL THE Land (for it is his), and preach the good news of the gospel of Salvation, found in no other name, except in his name – the Name above all names, the Name Jesus Christ.”
Genesis 24:7-8 (KJV)
7 The Lord God of heaven, which took me from my father’s house, and from the land of my kindred, and which spake unto me, and that sware unto me, saying, Unto thy seed will I give this land; he shall send his angel before thee, and thou shalt take a wife unto my son from thence.
8 And if the woman will not be willing to follow thee, then thou shalt be clear from this my oath: only bring not my son thither again.
