Gal 3:27-29 For all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free man, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus.

Has abraham received god s promise

Has Abraham Received Gods Promise?

God promised Abrahamall the land which you see, I will give it to you(Abraham) and to your descendants(Jesus Christ & those in him)forever.(Gen.13:14-15)

However, Abraham has NOT yet received this promise:

  • Acts 7:4-5[God] removed him (Abraham) into this country in which you are now living. And He gave him no inheritance in it, not even a foot of ground; and [yet] He promised that HE WOULD GIVE IT TO HIM

  • Hebrews 11:8-13By faith Abraham.. obeyed by going out to a place which he was to receive for an inheritance; By faith he lived as an alien in the land of promise, as in a foreign [land],dwelling in tents with Isaac and Jacob, fellow heirs of the same promise. These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off


God will fulfill his promise to abraham when jesus returns

  • 1 Corinthians 15:20-23But now Christ has been raised from the dead, the first fruits of those who are asleep. (21) For since by a man came death, by a man also came the resurrection of the dead. (22) For as in Adam all die, so also in Christ all will be made alive. (23) But each in his own order: Christ the first fruits, after that those who are Christ's at His coming
