Abram's Child

The Word of God endures.

Spoken recently by the great grandchildren of Abram and Hagar:
“We hate the Jews”, “We hate the Christians”, “The Christians and Jews are our enemies, you too because you're a Christian”

2,000 years ago Paul wrote:
Now you, brothers, like Isaac, are children of the promise. But just as then the child of the flesh persecuted the child of the spirit, it is the same now.
Galatians 4:28-29

4,000 years ago this was spoken to Hagar on the road to Shur.
"He will be a wild donkey of a man; his hand will be against everyone and everyone's hand against him, and he will live in hostility toward all his brothers."
Genesis 16:12

After 4,000 years we still see a hand raised against everyone, living in hostility toward his brothers; the other children of Abraham, the Jews by Sarah, and the adopted children in Christ.

The word of God endures.
