    The Blessing of Abraham !

    What is the Blessing of Abraham ? Its at least twofold, #1 Its the Spirit coming upon his seed and Christs seed from out of all nations. Gal 3:13-14

    13 Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree:

    14 That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.

    #2 The Blessing of Abraham that also comes upon the Gentiles is Imputed Righteousness apart from works Rom 4:1-12, 16-17


    What shall we say then that Abraham our father, as pertaining to the flesh, hath found?
    2 For if Abraham were justified by works, he hath whereof to glory; but not before God.
    3 For what saith the scripture? Abraham believed God, and it was counted unto him for righteousness.
    4 Now to him that worketh is the reward not reckoned of grace, but of debt.
    5 But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness.
    6 Even as David also describeth the blessedness of the man, unto whom God imputeth righteousness without works,
    7 Saying, Blessed are they whose iniquities are forgiven, and whose sins are covered.
    8 Blessed is the man to whom the Lord will not impute sin.
    9 Cometh this blessedness then upon the circumcision only, or upon the uncircumcision also? for we say that faith was reckoned to Abraham for righteousness.

    10 How was it then reckoned? when he was in circumcision, or in uncircumcision? Not in circumcision, but in uncircumcision.

    11 And he received the sign of circumcision, a seal of the righteousness of the faith which he had yet being uncircumcised: that he might be the father of all them that believe, though they be not circumcised; that righteousness might be imputed unto them also:

    12 And the father of circumcision to them who are not of the circumcision only, but who also walk in the steps of that faith of our father Abraham, which he had being yet uncircumcised.


    16 Therefore it is of faith, that it might be by grace; to the end the promise might be sure to all the seed; not to that only which is of the law, but to that also which is of the faith of Abraham; who is the father of us all,

    17 (As it is written, I have made thee a father of many nations,) before him whom he believed, even God, who quickeneth the dead, and calleth those things which be not as though they were.

    So again the Blessing of Abraham shall be imputed righteousness amongst his seed among the nations.

    preaching Christ and him crucified, unless you preach what now-a-days is
    called Calvinism. I have my own ideas, and those I always state boldly. It is
    a nickname to call it Calvinism; Calvinism is the gospel, and nothing else."

    Yes, and we receive that blessing of righteousness when we believe the Gospel of Christ which includes an understanding of all the promises to Abraham centred in his seed Genesis 13:14-15. This faith continues to grow and it continues to be reckoned as righteousness when this faith brings forth as a fruit baptism in identification with the death, burial and resurrection of Christ Romans 6:1-8, Galatians 3:26-29. This faith continues to grow and continues to be reckoned as righteousness when we live the crucified life Galatians 2:20. If we turn aside then we will be rejected.

    Kind regards
    Trevor

    You will need to do better than that, as I was mainly quoting the Scriptures. Would you like to comment on these Scriptures first? Where does belief and baptism fit into your assessment of the blessing of Abraham Genesis 15:5-6?

    The scripture you quoted were fine. It's your false comments.

    That is faith in the milk understanding to all. But remember later Abraham had to prove his faith. Going into the meat understanding.

    [Jas 2:20-22, 24
    [20] But do you want to know, O foolish man, that faith without works is dead?
    [21] Was not Abraham our father justified by works when he offered Isaac his son on the altar?
    [22] Do you see that faith was working together with his works, and by works faith was made perfect? ...
    [24] You see then that a man is justified by works, and not by faith only.

    Perhaps your two brief rebuttals are because you are on the move using only your LGMP260 using Tapatalk. I am not in a hurry, but when you return home tonight or the next few days you may like to answer the Scripture that I quoted and how you understand these. For my part I believe that righteousness is imputed to those who have faith in the Gospel of Christ, summarised as the things concerning the Kingdom of God and the Name of Jesus Christ Acts 8:5,12, and these Samaritans were then baptised, both men and women. So take your time, no need to Tapatalk, as I am patient for a reasonable answer. Your brief rebuttal without any substance give the impression that you do not have a significant answer to these simple, clear verses.

    Kind regards

    Rabbit trail. I'm interested in discussion of the scripture in my op not your evasion and rabbit trail scripture. That over throws the point of the Op.

    Amen ! The Blessing of Abraham is a Spiritual Blessing for a Spiritual Seed Gal. 3:16, 29, given exclusively to God's Elect Sons / Children Eph. 1:3-5 from many nations, whether jew or gentile, the Election of Grace, Chosen in Christ to have remission or non-imputation of sins, and having His Righteousness imputed to them by His being made a curse for them, thus Redeeming them from the curse of the law. And this Blessing of Abraham is received by them at some point after being given the fruit of Faith in New Birth Gal. 5:22, being Born of the Spirit.

    Gal. 4:4-7

    4 But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law,

    5 To redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons].

    6 And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father.

    7 Wherefore thou art no more a servant, but a son; and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ.
    My soul thirsts for God, the God Who Lives Forever:
    when shall I be brought in to see His Face? -Psalm 42:2
