And the LORD appeared unto him the same night, and said, I am the God of Abraham thy father: fear not, for I am with thee, and will bless thee, and multiply thy seed for my servant Abraham’s sake. Genesis 26:24
So now that Abraham has passed away, and Isaac is married to Rebekah. Its time for Isaac to continue establishing the nation God has promised them through his covenant. This is a very interesting scripture as the original Hebrew says “Yah-weh appeared to Isaac”
Now knowing that God is a spirit (John 4:24) and nobody has seen God (John 1:18) We can make the assumption that Isaac is speaking with Jesus who is God in the flesh (John 1:14) This is an interesting moment as we remember Abraham spoke with Jesus face to face in Genesis 18 before the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah
Now you might say, What is the big deal? Well the question has always been how were the Old Testament patriarchs saved? Well as you study the Old Testament closely you see that almost all of them have met Jesus face to face at one time.
And he builded an altar there, and called upon the name of the LORD, and pitched his tent there: and there Isaac’s servants digged a well. Genesis 26:25
Notice Isaacs reaction , he built an altar to Yah-weh to worship there. So obviously Isaac met God and he accepted and worshipped him. How is this possible? Because of God incarnate Jesus Christ
Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. Acts 4:12
There is no other means of salvation then Jesus Christ, our Living Hope! Amen!
