THE MESSAGE

ENJOYING MULTI-GENERATIONAL FAMILY BLESSING : THE COVENANTAL BLESSING OF ABRAHAM

****************************************************************************************************************************

1. ABRAHAM

The Lord wants us to learn from the life of Abraham the secrets of enjoying multi-generational family blessing. In these times of uncertainity and instability many people are worried and anxious about their future and the future of their children and grandchildren. The life of Abraham teaches us how to enjoy the blessings of God from generation to generation. Abraham had faith in God and was obedient to God. He believed in the promises of God and was willing to leave all his familiar surroundings to go where the Lord wanted him to go. The Lord was faithful to His promise and blessed Abraham abundantly. Abraham demonstrated his faith in God again when he beleived God for the birth of his promised son Isaac even when was hundred years old. He also showed his supreme love for God when he was willing to sacrifice his deeply loved son Isaac in obedience to God. As a result he entered into a covenant of blessing wth God which blessed all his descendants. We must follow the example of Abraham to enjoy such a blessing on our families.

SCRIPTURE REFERENCES

*******************************

ISAIAH 51:1-2

"Listen to me, you who pursue righteousness and who seek the LORD : Look to the rock from which you were cut and to the quarry from which you were hewn;

look to Abraham, your father,and to Sarah, who gave you birth. When I called him he was but one, and I blessed him and made him many.

HEBREWS 11: 8-10

By faith Abraham, when called to go to a place he would later receive as his inheritance, obeyed and went, even though he did not know where he was going.

By faith he made his home in the promised land like a stranger in a foreign country; he lived in tents, as did Isaac and Jacob, who were heirs with him of the same promise.

For he was looking forward to the city with foundations, whose architect and builder is God.

GENESIS 12: 1-4

The LORD had said to Abram, "Leave your country, your people and your father’s household and go to the land I will show you.

"I will make you into a great nation and I will bless you; I will make your name great, and you will be a blessing.

I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse; and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you."

So Abram left, as the LORD had told him; and Lot went with him. Abram was seventy-five years old when he set out from Haran.

GENESIS 13: 2, 5-6

Abram had become very wealthy in livestock and in silver and gold.

Now Lot, who was moving about with Abram, also had flocks and herds and tents.
