– – – therefore know that only those who are of faith are sons of Abraham.. And the Scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the nations by faith, preached the Gospel to Abraham beforehand, saying;
“In you shall all the nations be blessed.” So then those who are of faith are blessed with believing Abraham – – -” (Gal 3:7-9 NKJ)
Called of God
Abraham had been called of God, to leave his land & people at the young age of 70, At least we might be able to say so, for although he was 70 he had taken the Lord on His Word, So we can safely say his youth, had been renewed as that of an eagle’s.
Our Lord instructed Abraham. Accordingly when he acted, upon the Lord’s instructions. The Lord blessed him!
Abraham, acted on the Lord’s will in faith. Paul comments about this act of Abraham’s, as an act of faith.
Because he acted in faith, Abraham becomes the father of our faith; the father of a multitude,and the father of nations.
From scripture, we understand that Abraham, was one of the earliest missionaries(called out ones). Our Lord, called him(Abraham); from out of Ur of the Chaldees(present day Iran).
During the day of Abraham, Ur of the Chaldees, had been the centre of moon worship.
Chaldee(Ancient Mesopotamia) was largely known as one of the centres of ancient civilisation, and a centre of baal, idol and pagan worship..
According to historians, archaeologists & their like, they believe Mesopotamia had been the cradle of these ancient civilisations.
It had also been known in the ancient world, as the centre of education and trade. It was at the centre, of some of the most important, major trade routes.
It had been; during the ages of those peoples, where & when we read of Abraham.
The Impossible Made Possible
It’s been recorded in Scripture;
Abraham believed in the Lord, and He accounted it to him for righteousness.(Gen1 5:6 & Rom 4:16-22).
