​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​ III. The "blueprint" begins with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob
           The journey (i.e. the Covenant line) begins with God calling Abraham
[3] out of Ur of the Chaldees.
 (Gen.12:1-3; 15:1-21; 17:1-8; 22:15-19) "Now the Lord had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country,
           and from thy kindred, and from thy father's house, unto a land that I will shew thee: And I will make of
           thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing."  
 (Gen.12:1-2)  We begin  our journey with Abraham (Acts.6:8-15; 7:1-48, Gal.3:1-29, Rom.9:1-20; 4:11)
and ends with Solomon's Temple. (Review: Stephen's model sermon Acts.7:1-48)

        A. Abraham (type of the Father, God)
                 Abraham (Abram, 
Gen.17:5) is a type of the Father. (Rom.4:11, John.8:33-44) "he received the sign of
                 circumcision, a seal of the righteousness of the faith which he had yet being uncircumcised: that he
                 might be the father of all them that believe."

        B. Isaac (A type of the only begotten Son, Jesus)
                 Isaac is acknowledged as a type of the only begotten Son who was offered up as a sacrifice. (Gen.22:2,
                  Heb.11:17-19 / Gen.22:1-14, John.3:16)


        C. Jacob (becomes a type of the Holy Spirit)
                The question arises, "How can Jacob be a type of the Holy Spirit, because his name means a
                "supplanter" and he cheated Esau out of his birthright?"

  1. Reasons why Jacob becomes a type of the Holy Spirit

a. Because God identified Himself with these three   
                           God "said, I am the...God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob,"
(Exod.3:6-7, 15;
                             4:5, Mat.12:26; 22:32, Acts.3:13; 7:32)


b. Because God is triune
 Jesus said 
there is "The Father...the Son, and the Holy Ghost." (Matt.28:19) Jesus said, "Father,
                           glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was."

                           (John.17:1-26, Note:5) Jesus said, "when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all
                           truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he
​                           will shew you things to come. He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it
                           unto you. All things that the Father hath are mine: therefore said I, that he shall take of mine,
                           and shall shew it unto you."
(John.16:12-15) The Godhead (Father, Son and Holy Ghost) The
                           Trinity or the triune God.

(1)  John (The apostles that Jesus, the Word made flesh, taught Luke.24:44-45)

                                "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 
                                 The same was in the beginning with God."
(John.1:1-2) There are "three that bear record in
                                 heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one
The Word was made flesh, (Matt.1:18-25) and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the
                                 glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth."
                           (2) Paul ( the revelation of Jesus Christ. Gal.11-12)

                           And "without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the
, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the
                                world, received up into glory."


                                Note: Abraham (typifies God The Father) and Isaac (typifies God the Son) which points 
                                to Jacob as a type of God the Holy Spirit.
[4] This is the "Godhead" (trinity Rom.1:20,
being revealed "in the mouth of two or three witnesses." (Gen.41:32, Deut.17:6;
                                  19:15, Eccl.4:12, Matt.18:16, 2Cor.13:1)  
               1. (Cont.) Reasons why Jacob becomes a type of the Holy Spirit 
       c. Because the Covenant goes through Abraham, Isaac and Jacob

                          The Covenant begins with Abraham,
(The Father Gen.12:1-2; 15:1-21; 17:1-14) then to Isaac
The only begotten SonGen.21:1-12; 25:5), then to Jacob, Whose name was changed to Israel.
(Gen.28:3-4This is seen in the NEW Covenant. Jesus told His disciples when He, "the Spirit of
                          truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever
                          he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come. He shall glorify me: for
                          he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you.
 All things that the Father (typified by
                          Abraham) hath are mine: (Jesus the only begotten Son, typified by Isaac) therefore said I,
                          that he (The Holy Spirit, typified by Jacob) shall take of mine, and shall shew it unto you." 

                          God did NOT say, "I am the God of Abraham, Ishmael and Esau" because Ishmael and
                          Esau were both cut off from the Covenants of promise. 
(Gen.21:1-13; 25:19-34) 


                    1. (Cont.) Reasons why Jacob becomes a type of the Holy Spirit (Continued)  
           d. Because the "birthright" went from Abraham to Isaac to Jacob / Israel
                              What is the Birthright? It is the Law of the firstborn. (Birthright)
[32] There were "special
                              privileges and advantages belonging to the first-born 
(Num 3:12,13; 8:18). The first-born son 
                              had allotted to him also a double portion of the paternal inheritance 
(Deu 21:15-17, Gen 49:4; 
                                1Chron. 5:1).
 The first-born inherited the judicial authority of his father. (2Chron.21:3).

                                (a) God made Covenant with Abraham 

Now "to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to the
                                   seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ."
(Gal.3:1-17) This was
                                   the  "Birthright" (the inheritance, authority, double portion, 
privilege) that would be passed
                                   on to Isaac.

                          (b) This Covenant continued through Isaac (the only begotten son)

                                   Isaac is prophetically pointing to JESUS, THE ONLY BEGOTTEN SON. (Rom.9:6, Gal.4:28,
                                      2Cor.5:17-18, Heb.11:17-19)
 Review: III. C. 1. a-c

                           (c) Then Covenant continued through Jacob / Israel

                                    There was Abraham, "the father of them thath believe" who gave us the only begotten

                                    Son Isaac who produced Jacob. Jacob had twelve sons. (Gen.49:1-33) From these

                                    twelve sons there came the twelve Tribes of Israel, (Gen.49, Num.1-4) which was called

                                    "the Church in the wilderness." (Acts.7:38, 1Cor.1:1-11) God, the FATHER (Abraham) gave

                                    us THE ONLY BEGOTTEN SON, JESUS (Isaac), which sent us the HOLY GHOST,

                                    which produced THE CHURCH (JacobIsrael
                                    (Review of III. C. 1. a, b, c.)   

Remember, "our thoughts are not His thoughts." (Isa.55:8, Dan.4:35, Rom.9:20, 
                                       1Cor.1:19-29; 2:1-14) 
Note: Saul / Paul 

         D. As in the "blueprint" our journey begins with the "Godhead"[24]
                 If we deny His triune being, (foreshadowed by Abraham, Isaac and Jacob) then our journey has
                 not begun. This is why leaving scriptures out or
changing the Greek (God's inspired Word) concerning
                 the Divinity of Christ and the Godhead is a serious error with eternal consequences. It is a heaven
                 or hell issue, because 
if Jesus is not God manifest in the flesh, we are yet in our sins and bound for
                 Hell! You have not left the sin / bondage of Egypt. (Note:
1Cor.15:1-58, v.17)
      1. Only those in the genealogy of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob

                are heirs to the promise
                      If you "be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise."
(Gal 3:29)
Before this you were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel and strangers
                      from the covenants of promise, (foreshadowed by Israel's journey) having no hope, and without
                      God in the world. But now in Christ Jesus, you are "made nigh (included) by the blood of Christ."   
(Eph.2:12-13) "Now we, brethren, as Isaac was, are the children of promise" (Gal.4:21-31, Note:v.28 /
on "the way" (John.14:6) toward God's fullness in our lives. (Foreshadowed by Solomon's

       E. The "model" ends in the land, at Solomon's Temple
                God told Abraham to go "unto a land that I will show thee."
(Gen.12:1; 15:13)  This promise continued
                through Isaac and Jacob.
(Gen.21:12; 25:5; 28:3-4)  This was confirmed by God to the children of Israel
                after their deliverance from Egypt,
(Deut.12:1-12) and realized by David and Solomon. (1Chron.17:1-15;
 This is the "model" (ensample) for our journey before the Lord.  As in the "type," the
                Church will NOT stop UNTIL ("Till we all come"
Eph.4:13) to what Solomon's Temple foreshadows for
(Heb.3:7-19; 4:1-11, Eph.2:22, 1Peter.2:5-9) Jesus said He would build His Church. (Matt.16:18) This
                is what the Prophets Isaiah (Isa.2:1-4) Jeremiah () Ezekiel () Hosea () saw

                Note: Now the beginning of the "ensample" has been established in Abraham, Isaac and
and the end with Solomon's Temple. The events in between are an Old

                Testament "ensemble" for us today about the First Century Church,the Restoration of the Church

                since the Reformation and now about our personal lives and the future of the Church, the

                Bride of Christ.
                NEXT:Abraham through to Solomon's Temple shows the foreshadowing of our being born
                 again (delivered out of Egypt) through to our full maturity in Christ. (Solomon's Temple)
