SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 28
Scripture: Genesis 15:18, Galatians 3:29
The Lord cut a covenant with Abraham. He held Abraham to that covenant in Genesis 22 and it resulted in Abraham possessing the gate of his enemies. When we go to the New Testament, we are told in Galatians 3:29, if we be Christ’s then we are Abraham’s seed and are heirs according to the promise. Are we heirs according to the promise? Are we Abraham’s seed? Galatians 3:29 says, “And if you are Christ’s, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.” If we are Abraham’s seed, then we can possess the gate of our enemy. We can stand in the gate of the enemy, we can declare the Word of the Lord and we can watch God perform it especially when it is a Judicial Word. The important issue is not whether God will perform it, but whether we will declare it! Are we ready to possess the gate of our enemy?
