The History of Abraham's Family

God used the life of Abraham to teach God’s people how to enter the kingdom of heaven. Let’s examine:

“The time came when the beggar died and the angels carried him to Abraham’s side. The rich man also died and was buried. In Hades, where he was in torment, he looked up and saw Abraham far away, with Lazarus by his side. So he called to him, ‘Father Abraham, ...’”

Jesus emphasized that no one should be called Father except God (Mt 23:9). However, in the parable of the rich man and Lazarus (Lk 16:12–30), Abraham is used to represent God the Father. Through this, we can see that Abraham’s children are considered God’s children.

“If you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.”

Apostle Paul explained that those who belong to Christ are considered Abraham’s offspring and will inherit eternal life. Therefore, by studying the history of Abraham’s family, we can realize the decisive factor that determined the heir of his estate, in other words, who will inherit the kingdom of heaven.

“And Abram said, ‘You have given me no children’ ... then the word of the Lord came to him: ‘... a son who is your own flesh and blood will be your heir.’”

Abraham was already aged and distressed being without an heir. However, God promised him a son that would be born of his own flesh and blood. After the promise was stated, Abraham had two sons of his own; Ishmael and Isaac. Though Ishmael was his firstborn son, oddly, God made Isaac the heir of his promise. Studying the selection process of Abrahams’s heir, the only distinct difference between the two sons was their mother.

“God said, “… Listen to whatever Sarah tells you, because it is through Isaac that your offspring will be reckoned.”

Genesis 21:12

Despite the patriarchal nature of Abraham’s time, God asked Abraham to listen to Sarah because she would bear the child of promise. This is an important indicator to God’s people who will inherit the kingdom of heaven. If Abraham represents Father, and Isaac represents God’s heirs, who then is Sarah?

“But the other woman, Sarah, represents the heavenly Jerusalem. She is the free woman, and she is our mother.”

The key to God’s people entering heaven is concealed within the mystery of Abraham’s family — She is God the Mother. The ones who are with Heavenly Mother are destined to receive the promised inheritance. Come to the World Mission Society Church of God to learn more about God the Mother.
