642. You are an heir through belief
You are an heir through belief – Genesis 17:1-7, Galatians 3:4-9
17 And when Abram was ninety years old and nine, the Lord appeared to Abram, and said unto him, I am the Almighty God; walk before me, and be thou perfect.
2 And I will make my covenant between me and thee, and will multiply thee exceedingly.
3 And Abram fell on his face: and God talked with him, saying,
4 As for me, behold, my covenant is with thee, and thou shalt be a father of many nations.
5 Neither shall thy name any more be called Abram, but thy name shall be Abraham; for a father of many nations have I made thee.
6 And I will make thee exceeding fruitful, and I will make nations of thee, and kings shall come out of thee.
7 And I will establish my covenant between me and thee and thy seed after thee in their generations for an everlasting covenant, to be a God unto thee, and to thy seed after thee.
4 Have ye suffered so many things in vain (without purpose, to no purpose)? if it be yet in vain (without purpose, to no purpose).
5 He therefore that ministereth to you the Spirit, and worketh miracles among you, doeth he it by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith?
6 Even as “Abraham believed (to have faith in) God, and it was accounted (imputed) to him for (motion towards) righteousness (to set forth as righteous).“
7 Know ye therefore that they which are of faith, the same are the children of Abraham.
8 And the scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the heathen (nations) through (on the ground of) faith, preached before the gospel unto Abraham, saying, In thee shall all nations be blessed.
9 So then they which be of (out from the origins) faith are blessed with faithful Abraham.
