January 26: Messianic Prophecies

God was very specific about the physical genealogy of Yeshua. Each person in Yeshua’s line, while inclusive of both Jews and Gentiles, was chosen according to God’s standards. 

There are some who are descendants of Abraham who are trying to claim God’s promises to Israel.  But being a child of Abraham was not sufficient, the descendants had to also come from Isaac and Jacob!

Furthermore, God specifically states, that even descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob was not enough.  The Israel of God had to also be redeemed by faith in Yeshua.

Genesis 17:18-19*

And Abraham said to God, “Oh, that Ishmael might live before You!”

 Then God said: “No, Sarah your wife shall bear you a son, and you shall call his name Isaac; I will establish My covenant with him for an everlasting covenant, and with his descendants after him. 


Romans 9:6-7

But it is not that the word of God has taken no effect. For they are not all Israel who are of Israel, nor are they all children because they are the seed of Abraham; but, “In Isaac your seed shall be called.” 


*Also: Genesis 21:12, 22:18
