4A7. GOD’S NATURE EXPRESSED:
This was God’s primary purpose for the universe, especially for Earth and its people and specifically for Abraham, in grace
This summarises God’s continuing accomplishing of His primary purpose. In grace He had initiated an agenda of universal blessing through Abraham, in contrast to His universal judgments by the FLOOD and Babel.
God chose and began to make Himself known TO Abraham. God was interacting purposefully with him, both by speaking TO him and THROUGH various circumstances. This was in order to express His own nature THROUGH Abraham, bringing blessing to others by making Himself known TO them also.
God’s declarations and promises to Abraham were to be fulfilled eventually THROUGH the nation of his chosen descendants. Ultimately this would bring blessing to all nations!
