December 4: God’s Promise to the World

God’s Promise to the World

God promised Abraham that his descendants would be a blessing to all the families of the world.  Of course, that means, all the Gentiles of the world! From the beginning of the nation of Israel God made His intentions clear, that Yeshua would be the Savior of the world!

Genesis 12:3c

“And in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.”

Isaiah prophesied how that would happen.  Actually, the blessing wouldn’t come through a “how” but “Who.”

Isaiah 9:2, 6-7

2The people who walked in darkness
Have seen a great light;
Those who dwelt in the land of the shadow of death,
Upon them a light has shined.

6For unto us a Child is born,
Unto us a Son is given;
And the government will be upon His shoulder.
And His name will be called
Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
Of the increase of His government and peace
There will be no end,
Upon the throne of David and over His kingdom,
To order it and establish it with judgment and justice
From that time forward, even forever.
The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.


John explained the mysterious description of a “child,” versus “a son.”

John 3:16

For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.
