Venom Removal Series- Gospel in Genesis-8

After Abraham, we see Isaac’s life recorded in scriptures. Just like the events in the life of Abraham showcased good news of salvation through Jesus Christ, so also events in the life of Isaac illustrates the salvation plan of God. There is no character in the Old Testament, which is more known among Christians as the prototype of Savior, than young Isaac being led to be sacrificed by his Father. Let us meditate on events mentioned in scripture concerning the life of Isaac.

Isaac – Heir of Abraham

A son born to the king, makes him legal heir to father’s throne, just because of his birth. Similarly, the birth of Isaac made sure that he is the heir of promises made to Abraham. Allow me to expound this a little more.

The land which thou see, to thee, will I give and to thy seed forever” was an unconditional promise made to Abraham (Gen 13:15, cf. Heb 11:8-10).

This was an unconditional promise (See examples of conditional promises in Deut 7:12, 28:2). This particular promise never depended on the behaviour of Abraham or his progeny. It was a promise based on God’s faithfulness alone (cf. Rom 3:3-4). God’s faithfulness means God had to be true to his words and change not in the future, – if this promise to Abraham had to be fulfilled! This alone was required. Nothing more! Abraham’s descendants contributed nothing to the fulfillment of the inheritance promised to them.

We are the children of Abraham by faith in Jesus (Gal 3:26), just like Isaac became the son of promise to Abraham. Abraham knew he was promised heavenly Canaan, and he was looking for a city, not on earth, but a city whose builder and maker is God (Heb 11:8-10). So the message is simply that God himself was promising heavenly city to Abraham’s descendants, based on his own faithfulness, and did not mention any condition to grant heavenly city to descendants of Abraham. Is it not this gospel?

We don’t have to earn heaven, Zion or Jerusalem by hard labour, hard rules & regulations or disciplined life of consecration. It is a gift. It is an inheritance! There was no law set on tables of stone for Isaac, that if he obeyed he would get promised inheritance or if he failed he would not get it. If this would have been the case, then this would not be called inheritance but as a reward of law.

For if the inheritance be of the law, it is no more of promise:  God gave Abraham a promise, not law to be obeyed Galatians 3:18 (Paraphrased) Law was introduced much later for a time period (Gal 3:19).

Note: TPM makes people set their gaze on what happened in the temporary period of law. They ensure people focus on children of Israel in the wilderness, and their failure to inherit the land. This is evident from the comments of Koilmani Stephen Daniel. Galatians 3 mentions that the law was for a temporary time. If you make events occurring in a temporary time period as foundational to reality then you err.

So the conclusion is that the promise made to Abraham, about the heavenly city (Heb 11), and to his descendants, was to be realized through inheritance. Not by law! Not by rules – obedience or failure to which, would grant or remove them from the promise. Like Isaac, you only need to be born. You need a new birth experience! You then become the legal heir of the heavenly land. That’s the beauty of inheritance. This is the gospel. I hope you will realize the difference in the gospel and false gospel by the episode of Isaac’s birth.

Isaac’s childhood

All of us are aware of Isaac’s childhood persecution by Ishmael. It is the prophecy of the persecution of spiritual children in the hands of earthly children. It is clearly revealed in the book of Galatians (Gal 4:29). Yet we observe how TPM has brainwashed people to believe that they are going to escape tribulation by the secret rapture.

Isaac’s offering up as a sacrifice

Isaac’s offering up as a sacrifice to God, as we said earlier is the most renowned prototype example of sacrifice of Jesus on the cross. When Isaac was being led to slaughter, he asked his father, “We have fire and wood, but where is the lamb for burnt offering (Gen 22:7)?,” then Abraham’s response, that God will provide the lamb for himself, was stark and vivid pointer to Jesus as the lamb of God, which God himself provided.  Two thousand years later, John the Baptist reminded us about this lamb when he showed us Jesus (John 1:29,36) – Behold the Lamb of God. It appears that ages and centuries came together in minutes. One hand we have Isaac asking “fire and wood, but where is the lamb” and we read John answering “Behold the lamb of God” looking at Jesus. Amazing! Isn’t it?

Isaac’s marriage

Venom Removal Series- Gospel in Genesis-8Then we read about Isaac’s marriage with Rebecca. Again, we need no further endeavours to realize the truth which we know by our spiritual instincts that ‘Isaac’s marriage with Rebecca’, is a type of marriage of Christ and church. Like Abraham requested Eliezer to seek a wife for his son Isaac from Abraham’s own kin, so also Church is nothing but rib taken out of the rib of Last Adam. We are all resurrected to a new man along with the resurrection of Christ (Rom 6). As Isaac was seen meditating in fields when Rebecca arrived  (Gen 24:63), so is Jesus sitting at the right hand of God and interceding with the Father for his bride.

Encounter with Abimelech

Isaac’s encounter with Abimelech appears to be a reenactment of Abraham’s story in Egypt. There is a clear repeating pattern showcased to readers. As Abraham lied to Pharaoh, that Sarah his wife is his sister, so does Isaac lie to Abimelech, that Rebecca his wife is his sister (Gen 12:18-19, 20:9-10, 26:9). In both cases, kings set their eyes on brides. God preserves the virginity of brides from being defiled, threatens kings (Gen 12:17-20,   20:7, 26:10-11), and rescues brides eventually. The pattern of the lie, the bride in enslavement, preserving her chastity, and ultimate redemption, cannot be mistaken for coincidence. It is a clear manifestation of God as the grand designer weaving gospel story in the lives of his chosen vessels in sacred pages. Neither Abraham nor Isaac nor any biblical character ever knew that whatever was occurring in their lives was actually a work of God’s finger, working out a gospel story on a larger scale.

See the artwork video below.

From one angle it is a collection of various objects, but from another angle, it makes up a beautiful portrait intended by the designer. So also individual stories and events in the bible have their individual identities, but on a larger scale, they are predestinated by God to form the image of his son.

And we know that all things work together for good to them ….. to be conformed to the image of his Son….. (Rom 8:28,29).

Individual stories and events in the life of Abraham, Isaac and all biblical records are similar in nature. If God opens our eyes, we should be thankful to him for making us aware of his great handiwork and henceforth we should not seek in God’s handiwork that which God has not intended.

Conclusion

I would like to end this by reiterating that there is no character in the Old Testament, which is more clearly known among Christians, as the prototype of Savior, than young Isaac. Here is the Christocentric summary of the life of Isaac.

Isaac Jesus
Son of Promise (Gen 15:4) Son of Promise (Luke 1:31,2:6-7)
Beloved of his Father (Gen 22:2) Beloved of his Father (Matthew 3:17)
Sacrificed on a hill (Gen 22:2) Sacrificed on a mount (Matt 27:33)
Carries wood on his back (Gen 22:6) Carries a wooden cross on his back (Jn. 19:17)
Obedient till death (Gen 22:9-11) Obedient till death (Philippians 2:8)
On the ‘third day,’ Abraham got his son alive (Gen 22:4). All three days he was as though dead to him On the ‘third day’ Jesus arose from the dead.
Was praying in the field before Rebecca arrived  (Gen 24:63) Jesus is sitting at the right hand of God and Expecting the time of his receiving his bride

    “So also individual stories and events in the bible have their individual identities, but on a larger scale they are predestinated by God to form the image of his son.”

    This is a beautiful statement indeed that every believer in Christ has to undergo and maintain his/her individual status quo /experiences with the Lord no matter whatever how many road blocks ( like being slaves under the fellowship with these CULTS in their past faith life…but are totally reieved now), it is God who is faithful to bring them up to the heavenly Canaan as He promised to the seed of ABRAHAM . We are so much privileged class of people ,the royal priesthood as per His promise .But we must be faithful unto Him till the end.
    Kudos to ADMN brother for bringing newer revelations through this 334 th EPISODE.
    Remembering him in our daily prayers ,may God bless him and his team members evermore.

          What edifying? Edifying means some good fruits should come out from message. But these articles only bring our anger and curses out of our mouths. When we tpm believers, read article in fromtpm, our blood boil and our teeth gnash upon each other. Only curses and anger come out. Is this you call Edifying ?

    Thanks for your compimennts.
    Let me put a straight farward query to you.
    Have you gone through the wilderness experiennce?
    I mean you and your Lord should be there in that journey and noone else.
    All round you there would be full of wild jungle like.You are going through a severe hot /humid climate
    like in the desert. You get through the solitary experience.
    Now at this stage you must experience the presence of the Lord.
    Once in 2016,I made a bicycle expedition from HYDERABAD to COIMBATTORE,via B’LORE
    (distance :995 kms )
    The journey was on a hot and humid weather.Hyderabad to B’lore ,the road is on a high gradient,not easy to peddle. And from B’lore to Erode ,one has to pass through a jungle like high way.Midway on the way trucks and vehicles pass through you while you bicycle on the highway.
    In that such humid weather connditions I experienced a cool cloud ‘SEHKEENNA’ presence of God.
    God enabled me complete the expedition of covering 995kms journey in a most successful manner even as the youth became so much envious of me .( I am not going to reveal my age here but sure I am no more youth stage now.)
    So my dear friend Binu, what I wish you is before you prepare yourself to pass comments on others, think yourself whether you have had passed through the SEKHEENA exp of the Lord.If you have had any of that kind ,I am sure you would not have passed such comments like that.
    Write down your EXPERIENCES if you any, and post them in this site. We will rejoice along with you in the Lord.We will glorify the Lord.
    Even now our Lord is able to give you the typical experience of OT Israelies provided if you choose to have a typical exp of that kind.
    As for me ,there was, no tiredness I felt.My Lord took complete care of me.He bore all my burdens.
    Think always yourself as a PILGRIM in this world of wilderness.
    Wishing all the best,dear ,

    “I heard from one of Nancy’s batchmate that once when she met Venus in IRUMBULIYUR, she asked her, “Akka, why do you torture Nancy so much?” This wicked woman replied saying, “such kind of treatment or torture is imperative to subdue her.”

    I am sure that a question might be springing up in the mind of a sensible reader, “WHY THE SUPERIORS DON’T TAKE ACTION AGAINST SUCH OPPRESSORS?” Here is a fact that even you will be amazed at. There are some Centre Pastors who like Pharaoh use such oppressors to torture who they dislike. I don’t understand why, when such oppressions and oppressors are exposed to the white-clad insiders and their followers (TPM believers), they remain tight-lipped as though everything is OK. First of all, the God of the Bible doesn’t allow anyone to oppress others. “You shall not oppress a hired servant who is poor and needy, whether he be of your brothers, or of your foreigners who are in your land within your gates” (Deuteronomy 24:14).
    Does the Bible teach us to remain silent spectators of the atrocities & oppressions inside?”
    ———————————————————————————————————————–
    Does our dear friend Binu open up his/her eyes even as the more shocking revelation has come now?
    That Katta Venus has been transfered to ANDAMANS,her new safe haven now and the fresh WATERS of ANDAMAN get now…………………..by her presense there.

    Thank you brother Vik G for rescuing me. In fact our dear brother NMSTF has done his bit by giving a mild dose even before you ‘ve in.I could not imagine because of that mild dose our BOTH (EE& NMSTF) comments flew to skyrocketing. quite unusual—–all most 10+ hits from the reader community which include fence sitters. May be your hit is also there.Now let me turn to Binu dear.

    ” I shall not die, but live, and declare the works of the Lord”. Ps 118:17
    My dear friend Binu ,looks like you ‘ve gone underground..  Why did you go underground, Because of you that my strong TESTIMONY invited 9+ hits in the COMMENTS section. Its just unbelievable .The hits are continuing to grow.Do not worry about it.
    Shall we , my friend Binu,jointly declare the works of the Lord as the Psalmist says there?,  so that  many more TESTIMONIES of that kind may start flowing. from me …..Wish you all the best…

    FLICKERING LIGHT IS BACK

    SHEKINAH glory existed in the Most Holy Place.
    It was the pillar of cloud which was outside. Check

    Right now I am busy with some work will get back later

    1. The Hebrew word שׁכִינה (shekhinah) meaning “God’s manifested glory” or “God’s presence”. This word does not appear in the Bible, but later Jewish scholars used it to refer to the dwelling place of God, especially the Temple in Jerusalem. But many Christian preachers and TPM White clads have used the term without any discretion and has fooled many people into thinking that only the pillar of cloud was associated with it.

      So in the New Testament we see “The Presence of God” is the indwelling of the Holy Spirit within each of us.
      Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? 1 Cor 3:16

      So if EE Felt “A Special Presence of God” when he was in his journey, that is his Testimony. And Testimonies are personal experiences.

    “So if EE Felt “A Special Presence of God” when he was in his journey, that is his Testimony”
    It was exactly so.
    Thank you for providing me the forum in which I could share my TESTIMONY,which
    was actually experienced and seen by myself as a “A Special Presence of God”. Let me explain it in detail.
    When you are travelling on a bicyle,and especially when the out side temperature something unbearable , you could peddle all through the difficult terrain without being felt by any sense of tiredness,which was seen as a sign of the presence of God. One had to solely experience ( inorder to uderstand the feeling) the body feeling when I say this.Within the area of my cycling zone moving from the rear wheel to front wheel,there was cool umbrella spread feeling felt by me.
    That was what I meant a cloud like shadow that followed me. I do not need to lie as I wrote my ‘TESTIMONY’the Heavens are very much watching me,I believe.
    And this site has got many Jewish watchers too, as I already commented in the past.That is another reason why there are so many ‘HITS’ getting added daily.We do not know how many are offing as the days go by.
    All GLORY belongs to God.
    Presently that single comment has got 12+ hits as on date and kept on continuing to grow daily within the span of 3 days.
    All along through another connected comment from NMSTF brother also equally kept on increasing to 9+ hits as on date.This shows there exist a live watching of this site is taking place every day .
    Dear ADMN brother, yours encountering daiily battles . We are with you.Keep continue the good work being done by you every day. I really felt happy when Vik G has sent his comment defending me.It is a welcome sign from him.
    There are other stars like helloof2019 that flicker and vanish away and reappear again and fade away. We keep praising for those flickering stars as well.

    You are telling ur testimony, fine, U can say that u did not feel the heat of the sun and were protected by the clouds. Could have been a cloudy day , and also i don’t say presence of God was not with you, but to attribute this to the SHEKINAH glory is too much.
    So it seems u are a great saint of God and very close to GOD. Can u please tell me how many times has GOD spoken to you like to Moses/Samuel/Saul@Paul.
    IF yes did He not tell you that your website and comments are not in good taste. Or did HE tell you continue I like it.
    At least I have not heard the voice of GOD like Moses/SAMUEL/Paul, So next time GOD talks to you Please recommend me to GOD that he may speak to Helloof2019 also.
    You want to be inside TPM but want to push others out What logic is this?

    I think that this site came up in 2016 or so, have you attended their meeting after that. How you never experienced any blessing from their prayers. It is like making holes in the same plate that u eat.

    I have been scolded by Servants of God many times, but that does not means I abandon the church. I am also not an uneducated person who can be taken for a ride. I am not the spokesperson of TPM but whatever u all are doing, (calling names like wolf, fake etc) does not go well with Christian standards. Someone quoted that YE are the temple of GOD and the spirit of GOD dwells in you. If so how come that Spirit of GOD does not warn u against speaking and publishing such articles.

    U calling me flickering star, no problem, but stars always flicker. I don’t mean to condemn anyanyone, who am i to to do that. Ponder on yourselves. U all show signs of frustration at TPM. Simply keep away from the church, if u don’t like it.

    Meet later time permitting

  9. @helloof2019,
    My friend, what ails thee?
    Have you defined your problem because you claim you are not uneducated as to bow down .
    Why do you jump from one issue to the other?
    Did you read Luke 13:32?
    “29And they shall come from the east, and from the west, and from the north, and from the south, and shall sit down in the kingdom of God. 30And, behold, there are last which shall be first, and there are first which shall be last. 31The same day there came certain of the Pharisees, saying unto him, Get thee out, and depart hence: for Herod will kill thee. 32And he said unto them, Go ye, and tell that fox, Behold, I cast out devils, and I do cures to day and to morrow, and the third day I shall be perfected. 33Nevertheless I must walk to day, and to morrow, and the day following: for it cannot be that a prophet perish out of Jerusalem. 34O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, which killest the prophets, and stonest them that are sent unto thee; how often would I have gathered thy children together, as a hen doth gather her brood under her wings, and ye would not! 35Behold, your house is left unto you desolate: and verily I say unto you, Ye shall not see me, until the time come when ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.”
    Please exhort me the above context I ‘ve quoted for you, because you seem to be highly leared shining star.Take your own time. my friend.

  10. ” Galatians 3 mentions that the law was for a temporary time.” – is NOT true.. Such statements stems from failing to understand Paul, Torah, Prophets, Yeshua and The Entire Tanakh (The Old Testament). They all were Torah observant till their death. Thanks to Church for making it convincingly believe for the Goyim (gentiles) that the Replacement Theology is correct (That the Law has been done away with). Paul never taught this false teaching. Replacement theology is predominant in all the churches and their adeherants. check out the following research paper.

    1. Dear Friend,
      You are in a dangerous cult called “Hebrew Roots Movement”. And this site is not addressing the problems of your cult, but a sister cult Called TPM.
      When you read the scriptures with the Hebrew Root lens, you end up in such horrible situation like this. Hope Mike Winger is able to put some sense in you.


      24 Therefore the law was our [a]tutor to bring us to Christ, that we might be justified by faith. 25 But after faith has come, we are no longer under a tutor. Gal 3:24-25

      1. Dear friend,
        I am no less Christ-ian than you are. we both follow the Messiah. So you assuming that I am in a cult is incorrect. I would know if I am associated with a cult. As you knew that you were associated in a cult. By the way cult is important. Culture comes from the word Cult. I am following the Biblical cult not the Christian cult nor the Jewish cult.
        There are so many things that are wrong with his ‘assumptions’ in his video.
        He’s saying that even in the time of Moses gentiles were not supposed to keep the Law. That is simply not true. Even in the Rabbinic Judaism legend says that when Torah was being given to the people at the base of Mt. Sinai, it was orally announced in all languages of earth as there were mixed races among the descendants of Ya’akov. The Israel that got Torah were not only people who were the descendants of Yaakov but also other people as they came out of Egypt.
        There are so many evidence in the scriptures that even the stranger in Israel is supposed to keep the law.
        His other argument or ‘assumption’ is that Rav Shaul (Paul) taught against the tanakh and supported replacement theology. that is simply not true. I have already provided the evidence that Shaul practiced his ‘cult’ and culture. No where in the entire NT does he rejects the Law. He Never spoke or encouraged the early believers who were mostly Jewish to go against the Torah.
        He has very cunningly twisted what 119 ministries said and making his arguments. this is called barnum effect. WOW!
        “Jesus is the walking Bible” is absolutely crap. I agree with him. The only thing that Yeshua came for was to fulfill the prophecy of a Messiah to Israel and the world for the purpose of Salvation. “Jesus never said to imply that he is the Bible” says he. thats absolutely true. But Yeshua definitely said He is the Truth. and guess what else is the Truth. you guessed it right- Torah!
