Abraham's SEED

If you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise. Galatians 3:29

What does it mean to be the seed of Abraham? Biblically it has a deeper meaning than simply being his literal descendants. The Heavenly Father made a promise with Abraham, that all nations would be blessed through him Gen 12:3. Any earthly man or woman can lay claim to the blessings of Abraham (see Gen. 18:18; Gal. 3:8; 3 Ne. 20:25, 29). By accepting the Gospel, they become Abraham's seed and heirs to the promised blessings. Then through faithfulness he becomes an heir to the fulness of eternal life.

However, a
s the seed of Abraham, we have some obligations. We are commanded to come to Christ by doing “the works of Abraham” (John 8:39; see also John 8:32–50). These works include obeying God, preaching the gospel, building a family unit and teaching our children, and being faithful to the end.

It is interesting that the Lord used the word seed in His promise to Abraham. It has a fuller meaning than posterity because it means to multiply the blessings of the covenant of Abraham “unto all nations”. The Lord promised Abraham a posterity “as innumerable as the stars” or “the sand upon the seashore”.

When did the conflict between the Jes and the Arabs Start?

The Bible teaches that the
Arab nations and the Israelis have been fighting since time immemorial over that tiny plot of land called Israel. Their battle is not one of flesh and blood, but of spiritual things. The Bible states that the last great battle will pit Israel against the rest of the Middle East and its allies. How did it all begin and why have they remained mortal enemies for thousands of years?
