I originally taught this at a Bible study in a room filled with Jewish lawyers. One of them asked me what I was going to teach on. I replied, “Seeing the hand of God move through the fulfilling of the Abrahamic covenant, a timeline of Israel’s history and current events in the Middle-East.” He asked, “What is your text?” My answer was, “Genesis 12:1-3.” He sharply responded with, “I don’t see how you’re going to get all that from this text!” When we were done, they were all flabbergasted and convinced!
One look at Israel in prophecy and you can see the hand of God move through the fulfilling of the Abrahamic covenant, a timeline of Israel’s history and current events in the Middle East. All of that and more is found in Genesis 12:1-3. All that in three verses? Yes. And a lot more.
Israel in prophecy and the Abrahamic Covenant is one of the most encouraging, enriching, inspiring, and fascinating studies the child of God can engage in! Why? Because you can see the hand of God moving through history and bringing the world to its climax. What is the point of history? Jesus Christ, the creator, sustainer, and the redeemer of the world. And, it’s all happening right now before our very eyes!
The return of Jesus Christ is coming, burning like a furnace and nothing can stop Him. The gates of hell cannot prevail against the church. Prophecy proves the Bible is true since no mere mortal can predict the future with perfect accuracy-that is unless you’re one of God’s ancient Hebrew prophets!
