Sunrise on Temple Mount in Jerusalem; Back to Previous Devotion

January 11 - Evening

"“The Lord, the God of heaven, who brought me out of my father’s household and my native land and who spoke to me and promised me on oath, saying,
‘To your offspring I will give this land’—
he will send his angel before you so that you
can get a wife for my son from there."

- Genesis 24:7

God Will Send His Angel Ahead of You    

Abraham sent his servant back into the homeland of Haran and Mesopotamia to get a wife for Isaac. This woman will be asked to make a decision similar to Abraham's when he left the homeland to obey God and pursue the future plan of God.

The servant is told explicitly in Genesis 24:6 that under absolutely no condition is Isaac to return back into Haran or to the Land of the Chaldeans. Abraham literally said:

“Take my son back there? Absolutely not!”

Abraham is fully aware of the difficulty of this assignment given to his servant. Abraham realizes there will be obstacles such as family ties, inheritance issues, emotional connections, and much more, but he also knows that God has made a promise and that God is working a plan.  Because of this knowledge of God's promise, Abraham has been able to live his life following God. Abraham recites his life of commitment to God’s promise and then makes a logical conclusion: since God had made this promise - “To your offspring I will give this land" - then, God must surely be planning on Abraham’s son, Isaac, continuing and prospering in the Promised Land.

With that knowledge and confidence (or, faith) Abraham reasons that God will provide the wife for his son and a mother for Abraham’s future generations. Because of this logic Abraham knows that God will make this happen. Abraham says confidently:

“He will send his angel before you so that you can get a wife for my son from there.”

Something to Ponder??
After Alexander the Great conquered the Middle East the Jews outside of Jerusalem soon began to speak Greek as their native language. This resulted in the loss of their ability to read and understand the Jewish scriptures written in Hebrew. Around 250 AD the scribes in Egypt assembled 70 scholars (“septuagint” means “seventy”) to translate the Hebrew Scriptures into Greek. This translation, called the Septuagint, was the scripture for the common Jew of Jesus day. In fact, Jesus used the Septuagint and the Apostles quote most frequently from the Septuagint in the New Testament. Included in the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls were manuscript fragments of the Septuagint from 200 BC. This means we possess manuscripts containing the prophecies about Jesus and his ministry from 200 years before Jesus fulfilled those Old Testament prophecies! Today the Greek Orthodox Church still uses the Septuagint as the official text of the Old Testament.

Pantokrator (Gr) - Almighty (Eng) - pantokrator is a compound Greek word made up
of pas which means “all,” or “every,” and, the Greek word kratos which means “power,”
“strength,” “dominion.” In the Greek Septuagint the Hebrew word shaddai is always
translated pantokrator to communicate the idea of omnipotence and sovereign power.

Do I know God's plans? Do I know God's promises?
