Abraham Staggered Not

Romans 4:20-22 (KJB)   He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God;  21 And being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform.  22 And therefore it was imputed to him for righteousness.

Only The Righteous Will Be Spared

And the thing was very grievous in Abraham’s sight because of his son. (Genesis 21:11 KJV)

From Sarai to Sara

Sarai was born in Babylon; home of the proliferation of all false religion.  It is not clear what beliefs and practices both Sarai and Abram had been taught growing up.  Abram, Sarai, and extended family members of Abram left Babylon heading to Canaan to dwell after the marriage of Abram and Sarai.  This journey forth was in a time of severe famine and great difficulty as they made their way to the land of Canaan.

Because of the severe famine Abraham changed ...

To sojourn in a place means to exist in a temporary status ...

The Flesh of Ishmael The Promise of Isaac

Abraham was elderly, in his eighties and still yearning for a son, for an heir to carry on His namesake.  Sara was still barren these many years and Abraham had not yet received the son God had promised to provide.  The only child to have grown up in their household was Eliezer, who was born to a servant, not of Abraham’s loins.

Both he and Sara became impatient, living by sight, losing all faith in this promise of God ...
