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.

But the land could not support them while they stayed together, for their possessions were so great that they were not able to stay together.

HEBREWS 11:11-16

By faith Abraham, even though he was past age—and Sarah herself was barren—was enabled to become a father because he considered him faithful who had made the promise.

And so from this one man, and he as good as dead, came descendants as numerous as the stars in the sky and as countless as the sand on the seashore.

All these people were still living by faith when they died. They did not receive the things promised; they only saw them and welcomed them from a distance. And they admitted that they were aliens and strangers on earth.

People who say such things show that they are looking for a country of their own.

If they had been thinking of the country they had left, they would have had opportunity to return.

Instead, they were longing for a better country—a heavenly one. Therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God, for he has prepared a city for them.

ROMANS 4:13-25

It was not through law that Abraham and his offspring received the promise that he would be heir of the world, but through the righteousness that comes by faith.

For if those who live by law are heirs, faith has no value and the promise is worthless,

because law brings wrath. And where there is no law there is no transgression.

Therefore, the promise comes by faith, so that it may be by grace and may be guaranteed to all Abraham’s offspring—not only to those who are of the law but also to those who are of the faith of Abraham. He is the father of us all.
