Abram and Nimrod (Part 3 of 3)

This blog is continued from Abram and Nimrod (Part 1) and Abram and Nimrod (Part 2).

Many times Yehovah says of Himself, “What I say, I will do!

“Elohim (lawmaker, judge)(God) is not a man, that He should lie, nor a son of man, that He should repent. Has He said, and will He not do? Or, has He spoken, and will He not make it good? (Num 23:19)

I Yehovah have spoken this. I will surely do so to all this evil congregation who are gathered together against Me. In this wilderness they shall be consumed, and there they shall die.’ (Num 14:35)

Abram, who has walked with Yehovah since 3 years old is a “chip off the ol’ block” and has many of the same characteristics that his Father has. Being a man of his word, is one of them. Abram said these words to Lot:

Jasher 15:42 But I pray thee separate from me, go and choose a place where thou mayest dwell with thy cattle and all belonging to thee, but keep thyself at a distance from me, thou and thy household.
43 And be not afraid in going from me, for if any one do an injury to thee, let me know and I will avenge thy cause from him, only remove from me.
44 And when Abram had spoken all these words to Lot, then Lot arose and lifted up his eyes toward the plain of Jordan.

Abram promised Lot that he would avenge his cause, and he made good on his promise. When Abram heard that Lot had been taken by the 800,000 men with Chedorlaomer, Nimrod and two other kings, Continue reading Abram and Nimrod (Part 3 of 3)

Abram and Nimrod (Part 2)

This blog is continued from Abram and Nimrod (Part 1).

The animosity between Abram and Nimrod is a shadow picture of what we can expect in the coming last days. At Abram’s birth the stars proclaimed the destruction of rebellious Nimrod and his Babylonian kingdom.

Jasher 8:2 And when all the wise men and conjurors went out from the house of Terah, they lifted up their eyes toward heaven that night to look at the stars, and they saw, and behold one very large star came from the east and ran in the heavens, and he swallowed up the four stars from the four sides of the heavens.
3 And all the wise men of the king and his conjurors were astonished at the sight, and the sages understood this matter, and they knew its import.
4 And they said to each other, “This only betokens the child who has been born to Terah this night, who will grow up and be fruitful, and multiply, and possess all the earth, he and his sons for ever, and he and his seed will slay great kings, and inherit their lands.

This event has both short-term and long-term ramifications; and is a shadow picture of things to come.

Two years after Abram was once again delivered miraculously, this time from Nimrod’s furnace, Nimrod has a dream. Continue reading Abram and Nimrod (Part 2)
