God's promise to Abram is Fulfilled is lesson 6 in the first quarter of a year of Preschool Bible Study that I assist with on Wednesday evening. We continued learning about the promises that God made to Abraham. God always keeps His promises and Abraham and Sarah had Isaac.
Last week we learned about Abram and lot. They had so many animals, the herdsmen were arguing about the land. They each wanted the best land for the food and water to take care of their animals. Abram told lot (nephew) that he could pick the land he wanted. Lot decided which land he wanted and Abram moved the other direction. God was happy that Abram let Lot pick the land.
We are learning about Abram. He found in the book of Genesis (17-22). Genesis is the first book of the Old Testament. There are 2 parts of the Bible: Old & New Testament.
Abram believed the promises that God told him. God told Abram that he would be the father of all nations. He would have so many descendants (explain) like the sand on the seashore. Or, the stars in the sky (15:5-6). You can’t count the stars in the sky! God told Abram that now he would be called Abraham and his wife would be called Sarah.
Many years later, God talked to Abraham told him that He would bless Abraham and Sarah with a son and they were to name him Isaac.
Later, Abraham was sitting by the door of his tent. When he looked outside, there were 3 men. Abraham ran out to meet them and offered them water, rest, food and feet cleaning. Abraham fed them bread and meat.
The 3 men asked Abraham where his wife was and Abraham told them “She is here in the tent.” Sarah was listening by the tent door and heard one of the men say that she would have a son. Well, she knew she was old and she laughed to herself.
Now the man asked why Sarah laughed because God do anything! The men rose and Abraham went with them to send them on their way.
The next year, Sarah had their son just as God promised and Abraham and Sarah named him Isaac just as God told them to.
