In the Beginning
The Abrahamic covenant and the understanding of it are vital. The Christian movie, In the Beginning, expresses the relationship between our creator and humankind. It is a binding agreement that is eternal. In the beginning, the covenant was made with Abraham. The blessings of God or the covenant was ratified when Abraham was put into a deep sleep.
Genesis 15:12 And when the sun was going down, a deep sleep fell upon Abram; and, lo, an horror of great darkness fell upon him.
The animals were not burned for the sacrifice to ratify the agreement but;
17 And it came to pass, that, when the sun went down, and it was dark, behold a smoking furnace, and a burning lamp that passed between those pieces. 18 In the same day the LORD made a covenant with Abram, saying, Unto thy seed have I given this land, from the river of Egypt unto the great river, the river Euphrates:
We have to have faith like Abraham and walk according to God’s word. Abraham and his wife Sarah were so old that it would take a supernatural event to take place so that God’s promise would be fulfilled. Abraham’s name is still highly recognized in Christianity today.
The Promises of God
In the beginning, God’s Promises were and are still being fulfilled through the birth of Isaac and Jacob. The descendants of Abraham which God promised he would have. The twelve tribes of Israel were born unto Jacob as you will see during this Christian movie. The bible says that God made us in His image and that we were made for His pleasure. Rev 4:11 Worthy art thou, our Lord and our God, to receive the glory and the honor and the power: for thou didst create all things, and because of thy will they were and were created.
Finding Your Purpose
At the beginning of the heritage, Abraham’s great-grandson, Joseph, was the most loved by his father Jacob. In the Joseph movie, you will see how he was separated from his family and sold as a slave for God’s purpose. You and I are set apart for God’s purpose as well, it’s part of His plan for mankind. We just have to walk by faith and not by sight.
God had a plan for man in the beginning. It’s up to us to study, be obedient to His word and seek after Him will all our heart, our soul and strength. He will reveal to us the things that He only shares with His friends, like Abraham whom he called His friend.
You have always been with God since at the beginning of time. We are just here on earth for a short while. The movie, “In the Beginning” covers a lot in the bible but I encourage you to also watch the other Christian movies to get even more of an understanding of the scriptures and about what God has for us.
