O happy day, O happy day, when Jesus washed my sins away. Today on The Message of The Cross, Brother Swaggart and panel discuss the blessing and the curse as they delve into the Abrahamic Covenant. God’s everlasting Covenant was through Isaac, birthed from Sarah. Abraham asked God that Ishmael not be left out. Ishmael was the work of man’s hands; Isaac was the promise of God. The Covenant was made to the Jewish people and the generations to come through Abraham’s seed which was the lineage of the Redeemer to come.
