  1. Word Study

    Hello everyone,
    I have something that may make some of you pull out the Big Book. The question is:

    "How did Abram and Sarai Become Abraham and Sarah?"


    I will give the answer tomorrow night. Let's have some fun with this.

  2. Genesis

    1 And when Abram was ninty years old and nine, the LORD appeared to Abram, and said unto him, I am the Almighty God; walk before me, and be thou perfect.
    2 And I will make my covenant between me and thee, and will multiply thee exceedingly.
    3 And Abram fell on his face: and GOD talked with him, saying,
    4 As for me, behold, my covenant is with thee, and thou shalt be a father of many nations.
    5 Neither shall thy name any maore be called Abram, but thy name shall be Abraham; for a father of many nations have I made thee.



    15 And GOD said unto Abraham, as for Sa'-rai thy wife, thou shalt not call her name Sa'-rai, but Sa-rah shall her name be.


    God made a covenant between HIM and Abraham and promised to establish that covenant forever. And GOD blessed Abraham and Sarah to be a father and mother of nations.
     
  3. Well now... that didn't take long.
     
  4. Actually the name Abram means "Exalted father"
    This is from "Terah" in Genesis 11:27 his father.

    But in Hebrew, The name "ABRAHAM" means the "Father of a multitude"
    (ab-hamon) multitude of nations. (See Genesis 17:4-5)

    His new name implied a look ahead to his descendants.

    Sarai's name change to Sarah may have only been a slight change, but the meaning is "Princess"
    That would be a very fitting name for a woman who produces Kings.

    See, God has had all of this planned since BEFORE the beginning! :)
     
  5. Very Good!!!! That did not take long at all. That is absolutely correct.....

    Thanks,
