THE MYSTERY OF FATHERLESS NATIONS (PART 1)

17195. EVERLASTING FATHER, WE THANK YOU THIS DAY FOR NOURISHING OUR SOULS

17196. GENESIS 17:1-8:
1. And when ABRAM was ninety 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 more be called ABRAM, but thy name shall be ABRAHAM; for A FATHER OF MANY NATIONS HAVE I MADE THEE.

6. And I will make thee EXCEEDING FRUITFUL, and I will make nations of thee, and KINGS SHALL COME OUT OF THEE.

7. And I will establish my covenant between me and thee and thy seed after thee in their generations for AN EVERLASTING COVENANT, to be a God unto thee, and to thy seed after thee.

8. And I will give unto thee, and to thy seed after thee, the land wherein thou art a stranger, ALL THE LAND OF CANAAN, FOR AN EVERLASTING POSSESSION; and I will be their God.

17197. HIS FATHER, TERAH, NAMED HIM ABRAM. EVERYONE CALLED HIM ABRAM. EVEN WHEN GOD CALLED HIM AND BEGAN TO EXCEEDINGLY BLESS HIM, FROM CHAPTER 12 TO 16, GOD STILL CALLED HIS NAME ABRAM

SOMETHING HAPPENED IN CHAPTER 17 THAT FOREVER CHANGED THE NAME OF ABRAM TO ABRAHAM, BUT FIRST, LET UNDERSTAND THE MEANING OF THAT BEAUTIFUL NAME: “ABRAM”

THE NAME ABRAM MEANS: EXALTED FATHER

17198. LISTEN 👂 TO ME, THERE WAS NOTHING WRONG WITH THE NAME “ABRAM”, IN FACT, IT IS A MORE GLORIOUS NAME THAN “ABRAHAM”.

ABRAM IS THE ATTRIBUTE NAME OF GOD HIMSELF! GOD IS EXALTED! IT MEANS TO PRAISE AND RAISE HIGH, TO GLORIFY AND ELEVATE, AND LIFTED HIGH.

TWO THINGS I WANT YOU TO PONDER TONIGHT ARE:

1. WHY DID TERAH GIVE THE NAME ABRAM TO HIS SON, WHEN HIS OWN NAME IS AN UNDIGNIFIED ONE?

TERAH MEANS WANDERER, YET HE GAVE THE NAME EXALTED FATHER, ELEVATED FATHER, DIGNIFIED FATHER, PROMINENT FATHER, HIGH-RANKING FATHER, EMINENT FATHER, PRESTIGIOUS FATHER, ESTEEMED FATHER, SUPERIOR FATHER, LOFTY FATHER, DISTINGUISHED FATHER, VENERABLE FATHER, ILLUSTRIOUS FATHER, THOSE ARE THE MEANINGS OF ABRAM.

WE ALL KNOW PARENTS GIVE NAMES TO THEIR CHILDREN TO REFLECT THEIR CIRCUMSTANCES AND THEIR HOPES. BUT WHY DID A FATHER WHOSE NAME IS MR. FAILURE OR MR. VAGABOND, GAVE A VERY SUCCESSFUL NAME “ABRAM” TO HIS NEWBORN SON?

2. THE SECOND THING I WANT YOU TO PONDER ON IS: ABRAM MET WITH GOD AT AGE 75. AND GOD CHANGED HIS NAME AT AGE 99.

WHY DID GOD WAIT FOR 24 YEARS AFTER PROSPEROUSLY BLESSING ABRAM BEFORE CHANGING HIS SUCCESSFUL NAME TO “ABRAHAM”? WHY???

17199. “ABRAM” WAS A VERY GOOD AND EXCELLENT NAME. IT WAS AN INVESTMENT OF HOPE OF A BANKRUPT MAN (TERAH), IN A GREAT AND GLORIOUS FUTURE SUCCESS OF HIS SON. HE HAD TWO OTHER SONS, HARAN AND NAHOR, BUT NONE OF THEIR NAMES COULD MATCH THE GLORY AND PREEMINENCE OF “ABRAM”.

THE NAME OF A PERSON SPEAKS VOLUMES ABOUT THAT PERSON IN LIFE. ABRAM WAS A SERVANT OF GOD. AND HE HAS BEEN EXCEEDINGLY PROSPERED BY GOD. HE HAD LIVED UP TO HIS NAME. HE HAD BECOME EXTREMELY WEALTHY AND EXALTED. HE WAS ELEVATED, PROMOTED, EXALTED AND GLORIFIED! BUT GOD WAS NOT DONE WITH HIM.

GOD HAD A GREATER VISION FOR ABRAM. GOD WANTED TO SPREAD THE EXCEEDING PROSPERITY OF ABRAM TO “MANY NATIONS” (GENESIS 17:4). SO, HE FIRST CHANGED HIS NAME FROM “ABRAM” EXALTED FATHER TO “ABRAHAM” – “FATHER OF MANY NATIONS” OR “FATHER OF MULTITUDES” (GENESIS 17:5)

YOUR HIGH NAME RECOGNITION, GLOBAL BRAND, OR FAME, IN LIFE, IS NOTHING IF YOU CANNOT IMPACT THE WORLD AROUND YOU!

GOD BEGAN A SUCCESSION PLAN FOR ABRAM, SO HE CHANGED HIS NAME TO REFLECT THE GENERATIONAL IMPACT HE PLANNED FOR HIM. THAT SUCCESSION PLAN STARTS WITH CONCEPTION AND BIRTH OF ISAAC, THE CHILD OF PROMISE THAT GOD PROMISED WOULD BE HIS TRUE HEIR!

THAT SUCCESSFUL NAME (ABRAM) WAS INSUFFICIENT FOR THE NEW ASSIGNMENT, SO GOD CHANGED HIS NAME FROM SUCCESSFUL TO IMPACTFUL!

DO YOU KNOW THAT IT’S POSSIBLE TO BE SUCCESSFUL AND BE DETACHED, AND UNCONCERNED, WITH THE PLIGHT OF THE WORLD AROUND YOU?

GOD NEEDED A VESSEL TO IMPACT THE WORLD. THE PERSONAL SUCCESS OF ABRAM WAS INSUFFICIENT, GOD WANTED TO USE ABRAM TO IMPACT THE WORLD. SO, HE CHANGED HIS NAME TO REFLECT THE VISION AND MISSION OF IMPACTING THE WORLD.

INSTEAD OF JUST BEING A SUCCESSFUL FATHER, GOD CHANGED HIS NAME TO BECOME FATHER OF MANY NATIONS. FATHER OF MANY SUCCESSES, FATHER OF MULTITUDE OF SUCCESSES. THAT’S THE MEANING OF THE NEW NAME “ABRAHAM” 

17200. IN OUR JOURNEY TO PROSPERITY, MANY OF US ARE TOO CONSUMED AND DISTRACTED WITH OUTWARD APPEARANCES TO THE UTTER NEGLECT OF INWARD CHANGES AND INTERNAL REVOLUTION THAT ARE MOST IMPORTANT BEFORE TRUE PROSPERITY CAN WELCOME, BEFRIEND, AND EMBRACE US.

THE REASON WHY MANY OF US STILL WALLOW IN CHRONIC POVERTY, DESPITE OUR DESIRES FOR PROSPERITY IS BECAUSE WE KEEP CHASING THE SHADOWS OF OUTWARD CHANGES, WHILE WE NEGLECT TO OUR OWN DETRIMENT, THE SUBSTANCE OF INWARD SPIRITUAL EDUCATION 💡, ENLIGHTENMENT 💡, AND INCREASING THE WISDOM 💡OF THE SOUL!

WE SHOULD BE TIRED AND WEARIED OF THE INSANITY AND RAZZMATAZZ NOISE OF OUTWARD IMPRESSIONISM!

“Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, EVEN AS THY SOUL PROSPERETH (3 JOHN 2)

IF YOU DON’T PROSPER FIRST IN YOUR SOUL, A MILLION TIMES CHANGE OF YOUR NAMES WILL STILL LEAVE YOU WITH GRINDING POVERTY!

WE’RE NOT INVESTING IN SPIRITUAL LITERACY 💡 OF OUR SOULS, WE’RE TOO DISTRACTED CHASING MONEY 💰 AND LAURELS OF THIS WORLD WHICH PIERCES OUR SOULS WITH MANY ARROWS OF SORROWS AND FAILURES (1 TIMOTHY 6:10)

LISTEN 👂 TO ME. I HEARD ONE OF YOU IN THE SPIRIT PRAYING FOR GOD TO CHANGE YOUR NAME. WHAT YOU NEED IS NOT NAME CHANGE, BUT CHARACTER AND MENTALITY CHANGE!

NAME CHANGE IS AN OUTWARD APPEARANCE, BUT CHARACTER AND MENTALITY CHANGE IS INWARD CHANGE! UNTIL YOU CHANGE INWARDLY, ALL YOUR OUTWARD CHANGES ARE BARREN AND EMPTY NOISES!

GOD DID NOT CHANGE ABRAM’S NAME FOR 24 YEARS BECAUSE ABRAM’S NAME WAS A GOOD AND EXCELLENT NAME. THERE WAS NO REASON TO!

BUT WHEN GOD CHANGES THE VISION OF WHAT NEW THINGS HE WANTED TO USE ABRAM TO IMPACT THE WORLD, THAT’S WHEN HE CHANGED HIS NAME TO REFLECT THE NEW VISION AND MISSION OF IMPACTING MANY NATIONS AND MULTITHE CLOUD OF GLORY IS MOVING, COME WITH YOUR PRAYER REQUESTS AND JOIN OUR EFFECTUAL, FERVENT AND RIGHTEOUS PRAYER ALTAR, AND SEND YOUR WHATSAPP NUMBER, NAMES, GENDER AND COUNTRY TO OUR PRAYERSFIRE ALTAR ON WHATSAPP, TO ENLIST YOU IN MIDNIGHT ARMY OF THE LORD, WHERE TEARS ARE TURNED INTO JOY THROUGH PRAYERS EVERY MIDNIGHT!
