Lesson 6 Review: Abraham’s Seed

Lesson 6 Abraham’s Seed

Introduction

Memory Text: “But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should show forth the praises of Him who hath called you out of darkness into His marvelous light” (1 Peter 2:9).

Ancient Israel was meant to be like the clock in the jeweler’s window to the world, they were the strategic bridge-land between Asia, Europe and Africa. However, as the Jewelers clock in the story failed, Ancient Israel failed at a point but not completely because we have new Israelites in every generation that perform that same duty.

What were the criteria for choosing the Israelites?

The Israelites did not meet any criteria to have been chosen as God’s people it was just a matter of grace. God saw them in the time of love, chose them and made a covenant with them.

What obligations were the Israelites to keep despite the fact that they had the promise of the covenant?

The part the Israelites had to play in the covenant is to obey the voice of the Lord and to observe carefully all His commandments (Deuteronomy 28:1). However, disobedience would only bring curses as stated in Deuteronomy 28:16-68.

Why is it so important to control our thoughts?

The knowledge of the fact that God is our husband should make us guide our thoughts in such a way that our thoughts are far away from evil (Genesis 6:5). Ancient Israel’s apostasy did not begin with disobedience but a broken relationship that resulted in disobedience which brought about punishment.

What hope is found in these texts for those who hold fast to their faith despite the apostasies?

Amidst the apostasies, there are still remnants, although they still have to face the punishment of disobedience as a nation, but there is still hope for those remnants, the hope of eternal life.

John 10:27-28 helps us to know that there are still remnants among apostasies in Israel in the last day, God will call them out.

What makes us the spiritual Israel and heirs to the promise?

Christ as son of Abraham, was heir to the covenant promises, by baptism we acquire kinship to Christ and we participate in Abraham’s promises found in Christ through faith.

In Conclusion,

Everyone who is baptized of Christ are Abraham’s seed, spiritual Israel and heirs according to the promise by faith. As spiritual Israelites, we have a function to spread the gospel of saving grace. I pray that God gives Us the grace to perform this function all to His glory in Jesus’ name.
