Into the Blessings of the Covenant of Succession (Genesis 26:1-5)                  10/4/2020


Last week, we confirmed the fact that God has called us individually within the same covenant and blessings as those of Abraham. The word 2 Corinthians 15:17, “If anyone is in Christ, the creation has come,” has at least three spiritual meanings.

First, it means that from the moment you accepted Christ, God’s seed of life has been planted in you (Isaiah6:13 “holy seed”). It may seem like nothing has changed, but that seed will grow and bear fruits that will save the world (John 15:16).

Second, it means that through you, who is in Christ, God will begin new works for the sake of your family, family line, and the world (Isaiah 43:18-19). Even if you lack in every way (Nobody, Nothing), you will be the ones to save and bless all people (Everybody, Everything). Is there a kind of pain, weakness, or failure that only you know? God will make all of that into evidence that will allow you to save people just like you.

Third, it means that it will be the beginning of God’s work, which will be to relay this absolute covenant and absolute blessings to our posterity and the world. It is confirmed in Genesis 18:18-19. Abraham becomes great, and through him, all nations are blessed. God says that he has chosen him, so that “he will direct his children and his household after him to keep the way of the Lord by doing what is right and just, so that the Lord will bring about for Abraham what he has promised him.”

God takes Abraham through his last test on Mount Moriah, and promises him, “through your offspring, all nations on earth will be blessed” (Genesis 22:17-18). “Your offspring” means three things. First, it is Christ who will come as Abraham’s descendant (Galatians3:16). Second, it is Isaac, who is his biological offspring. Third, it indicates all saved people of God (Galatians 3:29). All of this is about the blessings of our posterity (biological posterity, church posterity, field posterity). This is the blessing of raising remnants. This is God’s absolute blessing.


  1. Make this covenant of posterity entirely your own. That is God’s greatest interest.

Within prayer (worship, scheduled, continuous, 24, concentration), this covenant will become your imprint, root, and nature as it becomes fulfilled.

1) When we received salvation, God has chosen and called us as the ones to relay this covenant and blessing (Genesis 18:18-19).

Abraham received his calling at the city Ur of Chaldea. It is a region concentrated with the Babel Tower’s idols and demonic culture (like Korea). It is where the best of the best were gathered (like the United States). That was where Abraham was raised, with many spiritual problems. When he headed for Canaan, he was empty-handed (Isaiah 51:2).

Abraham renewed himself countlessly, ultimately raised 318 soldiers, and his descendants became a great nation. Just like Abraham, we only need to hold onto God’s absolute covenant, continuously renew ourselves, and challenge ourselves (prayer challenge, financial challenge, missions challenge)

2) Go all-in on how you will relay this covenant and blessings to your children. You will find your all-change and all-out.

Pray as you contemplate on holy worries that will make God happy (2Corinthians 7:10)

You must do this as you age, and when you do this while you are young, you will be able to enjoy the blessing of raising many remnants.

In the passage, Isaac faces a very difficult time in Canaan. However, God makes everything into tremendous answers and blessings, just as He had promised Abraham. Every time, there is something God said to remind Isaac. “I will confirm the oath I swore to your father Abraham” (3). “Because Abraham obeyed me and did everything I required of him” (5). “For the sake of my servant Abraham” (24).

3) The resolution and absolute faith of Isaac, who will succeed this covenant and blessing.

A famine hit the land just as it did in Abraham’s time (1). Why was this emphasized?

It may seem like a spiritually inherited problem. Do not be deceived. We have been completely freed.

Isaac holds onto the sure covenant, listens to God and does not leave Canaan.

He transcended his parent’s spirituality (Genesis 12:10). That is why remnants must hold onto the covenant of saving the adult generation. It does not matter even if your parents are non-believers. Be thankful for bringing you into this world. You are the one that will be used importantly.


  1. All remnants must find your CVDIP in terms of how much you will receive answers and devote yourselves.

The 1st generation is there to help the remnants discover their dreams, visions, and missions within the absolute covenant that God gave them. This is why we must help them see ahead, possess ahead, enjoy ahead, conquer ahead, and challenge ahead (planting missions, internships, life forum). From this comes the blessing of “platform.” It is beyond making a living for yourself. People, finances, and disciples will gather around you.

1) Isaac planted crops and reaped a hundred-fold because the Lord blessed him (12-13).

He had so many flocks and herds and servants.

Even the flocks and the servants were blessed through Isaac. This is also that Joseph enjoyed (Genesis 39:5).

Blessings regarding everything you do (studies, jobs, businesses). This blessing is called “platform for saving businesses.”

As Obadiah worked as a public official, he hid and supported a hundred prophets that the king was trying to eliminate. That is how blessed he was (1King 18:4). Simon, who provided a place for Peter to pray, was a leatherworker. Lydia, who supported Paul, was a seller of purple cloth. All of Romans 16’s protectors, coworkers, and supporters received this blessing and were used for the work of saving Rome.

2) God gave Isaac the blessing of discovering a well wherever he went (19-22).

Isaac yielded to everyone who grew jealous, but God gave him the blessing of a well everywhere he went (source of wells, Esek, Sitnah, and Rehoboth).

Water is a source of life. Wherever he went, the work of saving lives arose. This is evangelism and missions.

Joseph saved people even in prison. This is called the “platform for saving the field.”

Deacon Phillip went into Samaria to preach the gospel, and such works arose (Acts8:4-8).

3) God raised Isaac as someone who received the King’s blessings (26-31).

The king came to Isaac and acknowledged that he was blessed by the Lord. Isaac was even able to have a feast with the king.

Obadiah was King Ahab’s secretary of state. It was his faith in God that he hid a hundred prophets that the king wanted to kill, but he was also someone that the king could not get rid of. He deemed even the non-believer king precious.

God led all the remnants of the bible in front of the king through these blessings. It was to save that age. This is called the “platform for saving the age.”

Just like Abraham from last week (King of Egypt, Sodom, Philistine), this is the blessing of the summit that will save the summit.


Conclusion – To someone who has the absolute covenant, problems and crises are an opportunity. Through prayer, challenge yourself to see ahead, possess ahead, enjoy ahead, conquer ahead, an fulfill ahead. May you stand as the successor and courier of this covenant and enjoy the blessing of the platform of this age.
