The Year of Isaac | Pastor Chuck Salvo | 1.7.24 | Sunday AM | On Fire Christian Church
The Year of Isaac
The year of Isaac you could say is the year a miracle was born! Isaac is a dream which had come into fruition! It was told Abram that He would be the Father of nations while he and his wife were old. After waiting 25 years they received the promise of God and Isaac was born!
Before we continue we must see what God instructs prior to seeing a vision or dream come to pass! Faith
”Then the Lord answered me and said: “Write the vision And make it plain on tablets, That he may run who reads it. For the vision is yet for an appointed time; But at the end it will speak, and it will not lie. Though it tarries, wait for it; Because it will surely come, It will not tarry. “Behold the proud, His soul is not upright in him; But the just shall live by his faith.”Habakkuk 2:2-4
A promise is made to Abram(father of one)
”And the Lord said to Abram, after Lot had separated from him: “Lift your eyes now and look from the place where you are—northward, southward, eastward, and westward; for all the land which you see I give to you and your descendants forever.“Genesis 13:14-15 NKJV
”And behold, the word of the Lord came to him, saying, “This one shall not be your heir, but one who will come from your own body shall be your heir.” Then He brought him outside and said, “Look now toward heaven, and count the stars if you are able to number them.” And He said to him, “So shall your descendants be.” And he believed in the Lord, and He accounted it to him for righteousness.“Genesis 15:4-6 NKJV
A name change!
”When Abram was ninety-nine years old, the Lord appeared to Abram and said to him, “I am Almighty God; walk before Me and be blameless. And I will make My covenant between Me and you, and will multiply you exceedingly.” Then Abram fell on his face, and God talked with him, saying:“Genesis 17:1-3 NKJV
Romans 4:17 call things that do not exist as though they did
This is the year of Isaac, the birth of a promise!
We have a new covenant promise
Even Abraham and Sarah received new names because there is power in our confession
Visual images take place through our words
”Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. For by it the elders obtained a good testimony. By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible.“Hebrews 11:1-3 NKJV
Conception at the time of prayer!
”And whatever you ask in My name, that I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask anything in My name, I will do it.“. John 14:13-14 NKJV
”So Jesus answered and said to them, “Assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith and do not doubt, you will not only do what was done to the fig tree, but also if you say to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ it will be done. And whatever things you ask in prayer, believing, you will receive.”. Matthew 21:21-22 NKJV
How is your baby developing in the first month?
After conception, the fertilized egg travels along the fallopian tube to the uterus, where it will implant in the uterine lining. The egg divides into a bunch of cells, some of which become the embryo and some of which eventually become the placenta, which will provide nourishment for your baby during your pregnancy.
Your dream, vision, breakthrough needs nourishment or it will die
”Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap. For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life.“Galatians 6:7-8 NKJV
Man shall not live in bread alone
John 8:12 I am the bread of life
Feed your faith
The umbilical cord also forms between the embryo and the placenta, delivering nutrients and removing waste.
The way the truth is delivered is through the Holy Ghost. He will deposit truth and bring conviction in regards to the seed within you
The upcoming month is a time of rapid growth for your little one, as internal organs, bones, and tiny limbs are beginning to form.
Growth is happening in the first month you just can’t see it
Much taking place internally
There must be a change for a healthy baby. Bad habits got to go
Smoking! Drinking, gambling
Gods cleaning you up for this baby
”By faith Sarah herself also received strength to conceive seed, and she bore a child when she was past the age, because she judged Him faithful who had promised.“Hebrews 11:11 NKJV
I waited along time but I’ve conceived and in the process of time I will have a child
