How God delivered Abram to become Abraham
Abraham was born from a particular tribe of the 3 sons of Noah. He came from the tribe of Shem which was blessed by Noah but along the line idolatry entered the lineage.
In the house hold of Terah, Abraham’s father, idolatry took over so God had to command deliverance through Abraham. So Isaiah had this revelation;
Therefore thus saith the LORD, who redeemed Abraham, concerning the house of Jacob, Jacob shall not now be ashamed, neither shall his face now wax pale. But when he seeth his children, the work of mine hands, in the midst of him, they shall sanctify my name, and sanctify the Holy One of Jacob, and shall fear the God of Israel.
Abraham was redeemed because the idol worship in his father’s house had given Satan legal right over him to ensure that Abram never became Abraham.
God has an agenda for your life no matter your age or circumstance.
Blessings for the Next Generation
It is not everything that God has blessed you with that you will see with your eyes. Some are reserved for the next generation after you and no matter what it takes, God is faithful.
He told Abraham that I have seen your faithfulness and walk with me. You go and be with your fathers, I will take care of the next generation. Your descendants will go into captivity for 400 years after which they will be delivered.
And he said unto Abram, Know of a surety that thy seed shall be a stranger in a land that is not theirs, and shall serve them; and they shall afflict them four hundred years; And also that nation, whom they shall serve, will I judge: and afterward shall they come out with great substance.
And thou shalt go to thy fathers in peace; thou shalt be buried in a good old age. But in the fourth generation they shall come hither again: for the iniquity of the Amorites is not yet full.
God is Faithful
God is faithful that even after your death, he is able to perform what he has promised.
Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us, Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.
He will do what he has promised even beyond your wildest imagination.
There are people who robbed you before your life begun but I declare that you will recover everything in the name of Jesus.
It is on earth and not in heaven that the power and faithfulness of God is made manifest so don’t think that it is only in heaven that you will enjoy good things from God. The enjoyment starts here.
The deliverance of Abraham affected Generations after him. You will be released to go and bless the people you must bless in the name of Jesus.
Why is this deliverance important?
Now the LORD had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father's house, unto a land that I will shew thee. And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing:
And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.So Abram departed, as the LORD had spoken unto him; and Lot went with him: and Abram was seventy and five years old when he departed out of Haran.
And Abram took Sarai his wife, and Lot his brother's son, and all their substance that they had gathered, and the souls that they had gotten in Haran; and they went forth to go into the land of Canaan; and into the land of Canaan they came.
Inside Abram was Abraham. Abram was a name given by Terah but Abraham is the original name that God has prepared for him. So God wanted to show him that because of the territorial powers at where he was staying that were holding him from releasing what is inside of him so he should come out.
The enemy can reduce you to nothing but God will restore you.
I know of a man who lost his business and 117 million dollars overnight. He struggled to even eat so he called me to come to his aid and by the grace of God he has risen again. Now I have access to his house including his bedroom.
The Power of Grace.
There are places Grace can take you to that qualifications cannot take you.
As a person there are things you need to be free from. Abraham had an encounter with Grace and the direction and the condition that came with it was to leave his country. he had nothing to leave with except his wife.
Your success is lying in your hand but your inability to take certain decisions is why you are going in circles.
God knew Abraham had no camel or horse but he told him to leave his country and he did.
You need to make a move and stop giving excuses when God commands you to do something.
