"Faith Regarding Things to Come"

“Faith Regarding Things to Come”

Blessings folk!

The great “Gallery of Faith” - Hebrews 11.

Much is said about Abraham in this passage…brief synopsis of some things in his life.

Less is said about others, though equally important.

Isaac, Abraham’s son of the promise, is mentioned in Abraham’s story.

One verse is stated related to Isaac…

Heb 11:20

By faith Isaac blessed Jacob and Esau, even regarding things to come.

A succinct synopsis of the passing of Isaac.

Isaac was blessed of God…

Gen 25:11-12

It came about after the death of Abraham, that God blessed his son Isaac;
and Isaac lived by Beer-lahai-roi.

Now Isaac sowed in that land and reaped in the same year a hundredfold.
And the LORD blessed him,

Isaac’s family had their “issues”…many chapters of Genesis recount it.

Yet, according to Hebrews, Isaac blessed both sons regarding the things to come.

Both would prosper.
Both would have descendants.
Only one, Issac, would be the line of the descendants of the Promise.
Yet, both were blessed.

Often, the blessings of the Lord are not seen now, but are regarding things to come.

Fear not over what you “see” now.
Have faith regarding the things to come.
