The Law, the Covenant & Time Prophecy
God put an end to their schemes by confounding their language, and scattered them upon the earth. Scattering is one of the ways God deals with those in rebellion against Him.
One ancient family settled not far from Babel and built Ur of the Chaldees.
God called Abramout of Ur of the Chaldees, and offered him a Covenant Promise if he would obey God’s command.
“So Abram departed, as the Lord had spoken unto him;” Genesis 12:4He made the choice to OBEY God and acted on that choice.
“And he brought him forth abroad, and said, Look now toward heaven, and tell the stars, if thou be able to number them: and he said unto him, So shall thy seed be. And he believed in the Lord; and he counted it to him for righteousness.” Genesis 15:5, 6
Later his name was changed to Abraham, ‘Father of a multitude’.
The Covenant Promise passed to Isaac:
“And God said unto Abraham, . . in Isaac shall thy seed be called.” Genesis 21:12
In the experience of Joseph, we again see Prophecy and time prophecies.
“And Joseph was the governor over the land, and he it was that sold to all the people of the land: and Joseph's brethren came, and bowed down themselves before him with their faces to the earth.” Genesis 42:6.
“And it came to pass at the end of the four hundred and thirty years, even the selfsame day it came to pass, that all the hosts of the Lord went out from the land of Egypt.” Exodus 12:41
And Moses came and called for the elders of the people, and laid before their faces all these words which the Lord commanded him. And all the people answered together, and said, All that the Lord hath spoken we will do. And Moses returned the words of the people unto the Lord.” Exodus 19:5-8
How quickly people can forget. In such a short time we see the people eager to break the Covenant and make an idol in the shape of an animal and worship it.
“After the number of the days in which ye searched the land, even forty days, each day for a year, shall ye bear your iniquities, even forty years, and ye shall know my breach of promise.” Numbers 14:34
