A wife for Isaac

Abraham was of the family of Noah, And Abraham was white. God called Abraham and told him to leave the family where he was and people of all of his race, his family, or his color or whatever you want to call it and go to a land where he would show him.

In that land were people poaching there that didn’t belong there and God had never given it to them and God intended to give him that land, because it is the geographical center of the Earth, and it’s marvelous for climate. And once again, when God restores it like it used to be, it’ll be a land of milk and honey, which it is not exactly today. But it’s marvelous what has happened to it since the Israelis went back there. And the part that they have is rich in agriculture already. Whereas other parts that are occupied by Arabs are not.

But Abraham went to a land that God showed him and it was a Promised Land that God was going to promise to him. Now God said to Abraham in that land, that he would give it to his children forever. That is the Promised Land but at that time, there were the Canaanites there. And they were black not white. All right. Abraham finally had a son of his own through Sarah and the time came to select a wife for Abraham’s son. So he sent this older servant, which was really, the manager of all of his properties and over all his other servants, of which he had many, he sent him to his own family, where his family lived, to select a wife for Isaac. “Isaac must not,” he said. Well, let me read that. Let me see. I think I have that marked here. I guess I didn’t. It’s Genesis 24, in the first four verses.

Genesis 24:1-4 And Abraham was old, and well stricken in age: [and if you chase the genealogy, Abraham was of the same strain as Noah, from Shem, right on down] and the LORD had blessed Abraham in all things. And Abraham said unto his eldest servant of his house, that ruled over all that he had, Put, I pray thee, put thy hand under my thigh: And I will make thee swear by the Eternal, the God of heaven, and the God of the earth, that thou shall not take a wife unto my son of the daughters of the Canaanites, among whom I dwell: But thou shall go unto my country, and to my kindred, [of his family or of his race, they were all of the same race] and take a wife unto my son Isaac.

Because of the Wrong Religion?

Now some people will say that when Ezra and Nehemiah caused people, who had intermarried with another race, to send their wives and even the children born back away from them, and divorce them, and put them away, they said, “Yeah, but that was because of their wrong religion.” Oh no, it wasn’t. Abraham sent over to his kindred, to his color, but they were of a different religion. So a little later, you will find, Abraham’s grandson, Jacob, who had worked for Laban for a long time you know, and when he left Laban, his wife Rachael stole the idols from her father Laban and carried those little idols with her. And Laban came out to find them. They were his gods. So they were worshipping a different god over there. But Abraham sent to get someone of that race, of that color, of that family, for a wife for Isaac, even though they were of a different religion. But I think they got God’s religion, once Rebecca came over. She got God’s religion through Abraham and through Isaac. So you can say that the only reason for not marrying another race is because it means that you’ll be going into a different religion. That’s not the reason! Rachael was of a different religion than knowing God and she stole those gods when they fled.
