FROM THE BEGINNING
THE BOOK OF GENESIS
AND ISAAC BIBLE STORY
In today's Daily Bread story, the promise that God
made to Abraham and Sarah finally arrives. The Lord keeps His promises. Sarah conceived just as He had said. And Abraham had a son from Sarah when
he was 100 years old.
Sarah was 90 years old when Isaac was born. God told Abraham to call the child Isaac. The name
means laughter. Can you guess why?
Then Abraham fell upon his face, and laughed, and said in his heart, Shall a child be born unto him that is an hundred years old? and shall Sarah, that is ninety years old, bear?
Therefore Sarah laughed within herself, saying, After I am waxed old shall I have pleasure, my lord being old also?
Let's not forget that Hagar and
Ishmael are still in the picture. And remember what the angel of the Lord
told Hagar, that Ishmael wouldn't get along with anyone. Ishmael is 14 now
and doesn't like his new little brother already. In
Galatians 4:29 it says
that he that was born after the flesh (Ishmael) persecuted him that was born after the
Spirit (Isaac), even so it is now. It made Ishmael mad that there was a new son and
heir. He was jealous.
Sarah saw that Ishmael made fun
of Isaac and it infuriated her. She couldn't stand it anymore so she told
Abraham to throw Hagar and Ishmael out and exclude them from Abraham's family for good.
What Sarah asked was hard on Abraham,
being that Ishmael was his son also. But God had mercy on Hagar and Ishmael
and told Abraham, Don't let it upset you. Listen to what Sara said to you,
because in Isaac, my promise will be honored. I will also make a nation
through Ishmael because he is your son.
Let's talk a little bit more about
this jealousy of Ishmael's. Do you remember that we said that as this story
unfolds you will find that it isn't just a simple story after all but is
still affecting the world today more than ever? Well here's why.
This jealousy that was Ishmael's
destiny has created an animosity that cannot be compared to anything else in
history. For four thousand years there have been disputes and wars that
trace back to the land that God promised to Abraham's descendants that has
been the root of the conflict between the Jewish people and the Arabs
(Muslims or Islam) up until today. The Islamic people believe that God's
true promise was with Ishmael, not Isaac. So that is what all of the
fighting over Israel, and the conflict between Christians and Muslims
has been about for thousands of years. Now, back to our story.
Abraham got up early the next morning
and comforted by what God told him, sent Hagar and Ishmael away with a
bottle of water and some bread. When the water was gone, Hagar left Ishmael
under a shrub. She went and cried, Let me not see the death of the child.
God heard the voice of Ishmael and the
angel of God asked Hagar, What's wrong? Don't be afraid, God has heard the
voice of the lad. Go and get him, I will make him a great nation. (And this
prophecy was indeed fulfilled ... See the related study on Bible Prophecy below.) God
showed her a well of water and she went and filled the bottle and gave
Ishmael to drink. Ishmael grew up living in the wilderness of Paran (which
is near the middle of the Sinai Peninsula of Egypt) and became an archer.
Hagar, being an Egyptian, chose Ishmael a wife out of the land of Egypt.
