ELECTION of RACE
BY: RAY PRINZING
“Walk before Me, and be thou perfect, And I will make My covenant between Me and thee, and will multiply thee exceedingly. And Abram fell on his face: and God talked with him, saying, As for Me, behold, My covenant is with thee, and thou shalt be a father of many nations.”
This is solely done by God, He chose the man to become the father of a race, a race that He had purposed to use to bless all mankind. What a testimony of this man who was so tested and tried, found worthy of his calling, to become the father of many nations, and through his seed all nations to be blessed.
But as a nation, Israel was called while yet in the loins of Abraham, and not because of their own greatness, even as we read,
Having been so chosen, bringing this people out of Egypt and into a land of promise, God worked many processes of testing, proving what was in their heart, and as a nation Israel failed to fully qualify. They turned to serve other gods of the heathen about them. So He had to severely punish and discipline them, scattering them among all nations.
