Gen.17v1-27:- Corruption in the O.T. How could you make a person your son by buying?
Abraham and the Covenant of Circumcision
1 When Abram was ninety-nine years old the LORD Yahweh appeared to Abram and said to him, "I am God Almighty; walk before me, and be blameless, 2 that I may make my covenant between me and you, and may multiply you greatly." 3 Then Abram fell on his face. And God said to him, 4 "Behold, my covenant is with you, and you shall be the father of a multitude of nations. 5 No longer shall your name be called Abram, but your name shall be Abraham, for I have made you the father of a multitude of nations. 6 I will make you exceedingly fruitful, and I will make you into nations, and kings shall come from you. 7 And I will establish my covenant between me and you and your offspring after you throughout their generations for an everlasting covenant, to be God Yahweh to you and to your offspring after you. 8 And I will give to you and to your offspring after you the land of your sojournings, the Promised Land, all the land of Canaan, for an everlasting possession, and I will be their God Yahweh." 9 And Yahweh demiurge God said to Abraham, "As for you, you shall keep my covenant, you and your offspring after you throughout their generations. 10 This is my covenant, which you shall keep, between me and you and your offspring after you: Every male among you shall be circumcised. 11 You shall be circumcised in the flesh of your foreskins, and it shall be a sign of the covenant between me and you. 12 He who is eight days old among you shall be circumcised. Every male throughout your generations, whether born in your house or bought with your money from any foreigner who is not of your offspring, 13 both he who is born in your house and he who is bought with your money, shall surely be circumcised. This is a corruption. A son is by seed of the man and the covenant is to Abraham and his sons in flesh or water. That is why Abraham took Ishmael and his mother outside the boundary of the Promised Land because inheritance is to the sons and not the slaves. So shall my covenant be in your flesh an everlasting covenant. 14 Any uncircumcised male who is not circumcised in the flesh of his foreskin shall be cut off from his people; he has broken my covenant." Or every plant, person, that my heavenly father, Yahweh, has not planted, shall be uprooted by the roots, supporters.
Isaac's Birth Promised
15 And God said to Abraham, "As for Sarai your wife, you shall not call her name Sarai, but Sarah shall be her name. 16 I will bless her, and moreover, I will give you a son by her. I will bless her, and she shall become nations; kings of peoples shall come from her." 17 Then Abraham fell on his face and laughed and said to himself, "Shall a child be born to a man who is a hundred years old? Shall Sarah, who is ninety years old, bear a child?" 18 And Abraham said to God, "Oh that Ishmael might live before you!" 19 God said, "No, but Sarah your wife shall bear you a son, and you shall call his name Isaac. I will establish my covenant with him as an everlasting covenant for his offspring after him. 20 As for Ishmael, I have heard you; behold, I have blessed him and will make him fruitful and multiply him greatly. He shall father twelve princes, and I will make him into a great nation. 21 But I will establish my covenant with Isaac, whom Sarah shall bear to you at this time next year." 22 When he had finished talking with him, God went up from Abraham. 23 Then Abraham took Ishmael his son and all those born in his house or bought with his money, every male among the men of Abraham's house, and he circumcised the flesh of their foreskins that very day, as God had said to him. It is wrong and corruption. Gentiles were not baptised but the sons of Abraham only. 24 Abraham was ninety-nine years old when he was circumcised in the flesh of his foreskin. 25 And Ishmael his son was thirteen years old when he was circumcised in the flesh of his foreskin. 26 That very day Abraham and his son Ishmael were circumcised. 27 And all the men of his house, those born in the house and those bought with money from a foreigner, were circumcised with him. CORRUPTIONS.
In Jesus, we have been moved from the brick-built Synagogues made by human hands for the Rabbi, a Priest of Moses or teacher of the natural moral laws, to the Temple of God made by Nature where the Christ, our Royal Priest greater than John, the Baptist, Prophet Elijah, called Innerman is sitting in our heart that leads our life to Salvation through Preaching Gospel of Supernatural Father. Thus, with Christ in our hearts, we are solitary capable of entering the Narrow Gate of the Vineyard of our Father where the True Vine Christ Jesus is Planted by our Father. The Narrow Gate is found by the grace of our Father and one in a thousand finds it. In Jesus, we have Fellowship of Royal Priests and those who employ Hireling Dog-Collared Priests in their Churches, they are Anti-Christs annulling the Sacrifice of Jesus as the Lamb of God.
