    To Abraham and to his Seed

    “In the same day the Lord made a covenant with Abram, saying, Unto thy seed have I given this land,” 7Genesis 15:18. etc. The making of this covenant is recorded in the preceding verses. First we have the promise of an innumerable posterity, and of land. God said, “I am the Lord, that brought thee out of Ur of the Chaldees, to give thee this land to inherit it.” (Verse 7.) This verse must be kept in mind while reading verse 18, lest we get the wrong impression that there was something promised to Abraham’s seed, which did not include him. “Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made.” 1Galatians 3:16. Nothing was promised to the seed that was not also promised to Abraham.EVCO 69.2

    Abraham believed the Lord, yet he said, “Lord God, whereby shall I know that I shall inherit it?” 2Genesis 15:8. Then follows the record of the dividing of the heifer and the she goat and the ram. This is referred to in Jeremiah 34:18-20, when God reproved the people for transgressing the covenant.EVCO 70.1
