Abraham’s family and Heavenly Mother
The bible calls God’s people who will be saved ‘children of promise like Isaac’.(Gal 4:28) It tells us that there is prophetical thing between the son of Abraham, Isaac and God’s children who will be saved. To tell you the conclusion, They are children of Heavenly Mother.
Relationship of God and Abraham
God often said ‘I am the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob’. This expression means that God thinks Abraham’s family specially. And Jesus told us Abraham represents God through the parable. Let us find out the qualification to be children of promise through the relation with God and Abraham, God’s children and Isaac.
When Lazarus died, The Angles carried him next to Abraham. If we are saved and enter the kingdom of heaven, whose side will we be carried to? God. But it is recorded that Lazarus who should be carried God’s side, was carried Abraham’s side. And only God can be called “Father” in heaven. But the rich man called God “Father Abraham” instead of “Father God”. We can understand Abraham represents God the Father through this parable.
If Abraham represents God, his heir who inherited his estate represents God’s heir who will inherit the kingdom of heaven of course. Therefore, it is very important that ‘who would be the Abraham’s heir because it tell us ‘who will be the God’s heir who will inherit the kingdom of heaven’. So God has been deeply involved in the matter of defining the heirs of Abraham’s family.
Candidates for Abraham’s inheritance
In Abraham’s family, there were three candidates who could inherit Abraham’s estate. The first was Eliezer, the loyal servant of him. The second was lshmael who was born of maidservant Hagar. And the third was Isaac who was born of Sarah, his wife.
Abraham was old and had no children over the age of eighty. So he asked God to allow Eliezer a loyal servant who was raised in his house as his heir.
God said that Eliezer was not Abraham’s heir but a son coming from his own body would be his heir.
2. Ishmael and Issac
The second candidate Ishmael was firstborn son who was born of Hagar. Hagar was a maidservant of Sarah who was the wife of Abraham. He wanted to make Eliezer his heir. God said he could not become his heir.
God appeared to Abram ,ninety-nine years old, and changed their name, Abram and Sarai into Abraham and Sarah. God blessed that Abraham will be the father of nations and Sarah will be the mother of nations. And God said that “Sarah will bear you a son. and you will call him Isaac. I will establish my covenant.“
Eventually, Sarah bored a son Isaac and He became a heir of Abraham as God said.
The condition of Abraham’s heir
What makes Isaac become a heir of Abraham? Let us confirm the conditions of three candidates.
|Father Abraham||Mother Sarah||Result|
Why Eliezer could not inherit and Who will receive the inheritance as God said?
The one coming from Abraham’s own body will be a heir, God said.
Eliezer could not inherit because he is not a son of him.
First condition of Abraham’s heir was being a son of him.
Second, Who would be a heir, not Ishmael?
When Sarah bear a son called Isaac, God promised He will establish a covenant with Issac.
Even though Ishmael is a son of Abraham, he couldn’t inherit because he was not from Sarah. Second condition of inheritance was being a son of Sarah.
Only Isaac was a qualified heir of Abraham and Sarah.
At that time there was a first son’s succession system.
It means that All the inheritance of the father is inherited by the firstborn. If only father’s line is considered, Ishmael must be Abraham’s heir. What is the decisive reason why Isaac became a heir of Abraham, not Ishmael, the firstborn son?
It was the mother’s presence. Isaac was the son of Sarah, the liberator.
The condition of God’s heir, Heavenly Mother .
The history of Abraham’s family is not just a personal family history. It is an important prophecy that shows who can inherit the kingdom of God, Heaven.
If it is not important problem that related with God’s redemption work, There is no need for God to engage in such a private household.
Abraham represents God the Father, and of course Sarah, his wife, represents Heavenly Mother .
Considering the history of Abraham’s family, the mirror, Let’s see who is going to inherit the heir of the kingdom of heaven.
First, Who are like Eliezer?
Eliezer’s father was not Abraham, and his mother was not Sarah. In means that those who are like Eliezer are unbelievers who do not believe in God the Father or Heavenly Mother. What does the kingdom of Heaven have to do with them If they don’t believe in God?
Second, Who are like Ishmael?
Ishmael’s father was Abraham but his mother was not Sarah. Those who believe in God today are as numerous as the sand of the sea. And Most of them believe in God the Father only but don’t admit Heavenly Mother.
Just as the maidservant Hagar and his son Ishmael were driven out, if they deny Heavenly Mother and do not believe in, they will eventually be forced out of heaven without inheritance.
Third, Who are the promised children like Isaac?
Isaac ‘s father is Abraham, and his mother is Sarah, who is free. In order to inherit the kingdom of God, we must believe and accept not only God the Father but also Heavenly Mother.
As children of promises like Isaac, children who inherit the kingdom of heaven have a mother who is free.
Children of Heavenly Mother, the promised children.
Why is Isaac called a promised child? Before Isaac was conceived, God has said “Sarah shall have a son by birth.” and has promised to make a covenant with him.
As Isaac gained heritage through her mother Sarah, The heir of God, who is saved, can not be promised without Heavenly Mother Jerusalem, who is free.
God’s word to Abraham, “Listen whatever Sarah, your wife says,” it means that God the Father who is Abraham will follow will of Heavenly Mother who is Sarah absolutely to give us inheritance of Heaven.
“Joshua followed Moses,
Elisha followed Elijah,
Peter followed Jesus,
And I follow Heavenly Mother. ”
The will of God the Father is following Heavenly Mother.
Let us become the children of God who obey the words of Heavenly Mother according to the will of God the Father, to inherit the kingdom of heaven as children of promise.
