Dwell with Him
God promised Abram, later known as Abraham, that He would make of him a great nation and that all families of the earth would be blessed through him. That great nation was Israel, and the human race would be blessed by Jesus Christ, Who came into the world through Israel’s tribe of Judah, of the household of David. To be an Israelite was to be a descendant of Abraham, though Paul the apostle wrote at Galatians Three that all they that belong to Christ are the spiritual descendants of Abraham and are heirs according to the promise that God had made to him. Just as surely as God fulfilled His promise to make of Abram a great nation, He has fulfilled also His promise of blessing to the race of humanity. As surely as Israel came ultimately to Canaan, the faithful of God’s own will ultimately dwell with Him.
