The only scriptural reading of Wednesday 7-06-2017 culled from Genesis 21:8-18 talks about the story of Abraham, Sarah and Hagars, the slave who brought into life Ishmaels for Abraham before the birth of the covenant child, Isaac.
The coming in of Hagar into Abraham’s covenanted life was as result of a human arrangement brought about by Sarah. Unfortunately for Sarah, the idea backfired! The mission of an Hagar in the life of an Abraham is to use her Ishmael to mock a Sarah’s Isaac.
Just like Jesus Christ increased in wisdom and stature, and in favour with God and man so did Isaac grow and was weaned. As a son of the kingdom, student, worker, minister etc, you must grow and be weaned. Weaning symbolizes growing out of a stage of life into another stage. When you experience a weaning in the kingdom, education/academics, office, ministry etc, it is worth a celebration just like Abraham made a great feast for Isaac.
For every purpose (Isaac) of Abraham, a competitor/oppressor (Ishmael) could surface to share in the benefits of the Isaac. Ishmael does not just surface, it needs an Hagar to come produce it.
The earthly CCC has been politically hijacked by Hagars, and Ishmaels are ruling because Abrahams have compromised. The covenant is floating. Until Sarah arises to recover Isaac’s right for him, nothing good may happen to this fold.
Let’s us all come together and cast out the Hagars and Ishmaels in CCC!
