The Promise Preached...

And, fulfilled...

(Peacock Flamboyant Flower)

Galatians 3:8,9
"And the scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the heathen through faith,
preached before the gospel unto Abraham,
"In thee shall all nations be blessed"
So then they which be of faith are blessed with faithful Abraham."

Galatians 3:13,14
"Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law,
being made a curse for us:
for it is written,
"Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree"
That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ;
that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith."

Galatians 3:16-18
"Now to Abraham and his Seed were the promises made.
He saith not, and to seeds, as of many;
but as of One, and to the Seed, which is Christ.
And this I say,
the covenant, that was confirmed before of God in Christ,
the law, which was four hundred and thirty years after,
cannot disannul,
that it should make the promise of none effect.
For if the inheritance be of the law,
it is no more of promise:
but God gave it to Abraham by promise."

John 8:56
Jesus said,
"Your father Abraham rejoiced to see my day:
and he saw,
and was glad."

John 19:30
"...He said, It is finished:
and He bowed His head and gave up the ghost."

Blessed be the Lord.

May the Lord bless you with the faith of Jesus Christ.
