“ The Promise of Abraham Remains”


BIBLE READING: Ezekiel 38-39
                Centuries before Ezekiel ever existed, God made a promise to Abram as He was leaving Ur of the Chaldees on a journey of self-discovery and providential purpose.  That Promise that God made to Abraham has served as the core of Jewish theology ever since. During the famine of Jacob, God’s promise remained.  Through the slavery of Egypt, God promise remained.  All the while, during the conquest of Canaan by Joshua, the promise remained.  During the glory days of King David and Solomon, the promise was still remembered.  During the day of the wicked kings of Judah and Israel, the cries of God’s prophets and the destruction of their Temple and city, for that small remnant, the promise remained.  As God describes this battle within the two difficult chapter in Ezekiel, there is one theme that remains and is found in Ezekiel 39.25-29; the promise remains.  Even as we see the sinless life of Christ as He lived and died for our sins, paying the way that we can become His children, making us “heirs according to the Promise” (Galatians 3.26-27).  The promise remains! We must remember the words of the Apostle Peter, “The Lord is not slow to fulfill his promise as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance.” (2 Peter 3:9)
