Zech 4:2 And said unto me, What seest thou? And I said, I have looked, and behold a candlestick all of gold, with a bowl upon the top of it, and his seven lamps thereon, and seven pipes to the seven lamps, which are upon the top thereof: 4:3 And two olive trees by it, one upon the right side of the bowl, and the other upon the left side thereof.Ps 119:105 Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.Ps 119:130 The entrance of thy words gives light; it gives understanding to the simple.2Sam 22:29 For thou art my lamp, O LORD: and the LORD will lighten my darkness.Psalm 27:1 The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?John 1:4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men.John 1:9 That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.Psalm 104:1 Bless the LORD, O my soul.

Judges 9:6 And all the men of Shechem gathered together, and all the house of Millo, and went, and made Abimelech king, by the plain of the pillar that was in Shechem.9:7 And when they told it to Jotham, he went and stood in the top of mount Gerizim, and lifted up his voice, and cried, and said unto them, Hearken unto me, ye men of Shechem, that God may hearken unto you.9:8 The trees went forth on a time to anoint a king over them; and they said unto the olive tree, Reign thou over us.
But God still promises to make Abram “a father of many nations” and changes his name to Abraham to emphasize his new status. “…and kings shall come out of thee” (Gen 17:6).There was no alternative to God’s plan. No proxy son, no adopted son. God promised Abraham a real, literal son that would “come forth out of” Abraham himself!
When Abram paid tithe to Melchisedec, Levi is given credit for paying tithe as well!So also Jacob paid tithes in Abraham, and Isaac paid tithes in Abraham. Because Isaac, and Jacob, and Levi were all virtually in Abraham. God “calls those things which are not as though they were”! (Rom 4:17).
It’s been nearly a quarter of a century since Abram, now Abraham, was given the first promise of a son. But the time has finally arrived.The LORD pays Abraham and Sarah a visit. God promises to return “about the time of life.”Why did God have to return at the time of Sarah’s delivery? This was a miracle birth. Isaac was born only by God’s direct intervention. Isaac received his life from God. Abraham didn’t have any life to give Isaac, And Sarah had no life to give Isaac.

Abraham and Isaac<br />Genesis 12:2 God promised to make of Abram a great nation, to make Abram’s seed as the dust of the earth.
