  • Chapter 15—–Abram has a massive supernatural encounter with God
  • Chapter 16-—-verse 3 -It’s been 10 years since the encounter – nothing has happened yet- Since  then God has been silent-? Promise seems to be no more by Human standards-So Ishmael is planned!
  • Chapter 17——-After the birth of Ishmael -God again is (silent) for 13 years! Then HE appeared to Abram renewing his promises-The same promises  He gave him over 20 years ago.—— so 13  + 10 years = 23 years of no recorded chat between God and Abram, the God comes again.
  • Few things are happening in this chapter ( change of name/circumcision)  as we are now getting closer tho chapter 21- the birth of the Promise Son!—
  • As we are approaching the time of fulfillment- God’s silence is broken-Abram is almost 100 years-The promise of Isaac was first made when he was 75 years.
  • Chapter 18- God has gotten very ‘bubbly’, now ,the dry times are over,tangible manifestations of His Presence are pouring- He even involves Abram in a the fate of Sodom and Gomorrah!
  • God is also getting very specific with the promise, he has now given a time of the fulfillment- in a year time……verse 10
  • Chapter 20–Abraham doubts again, moved by fear deceived Abimalech – Fear being the nemesis of Faith- Abram failed – after all that —-in such a simple test – ahh the contradictions found in the heart of men!!
  • Chapter 22- Abraham, greatest and more intimate Test ! and He passes with flying colors!!
  •  He passes this test when less demanding tests he failed—- I found that to be a very recurrent habit in my own life! Or maybe it is that the tests given in waiting seasons are the hardest…..Be still and Know!!!

“What’s been on my mind Today?-My new Series.

Every day we hear ,listen,read, see and think -we get fed by thoughts, ideas, worldviews, beliefs,unbelief ,assertions,theories …. whether aware or not!
This series is about those Random/Intended thoughts – mine and those I hear/read along the day!
They are raw impulsive musings – especially mine- sometimes only making sense in my context ! The wording is often weak! Most are -spontaneous reflections in their ‘embryonic’ form that will eventually get their own post once they reach full term!

SO,What’s been on my mind Today ?-Scroll up!:OD
