Jennifer,

The bible says in Genesis 21:18 Arise, lift up the lad, and hold him in thine hand; for I will make him a great nation.

This God telling Hajar to lift up Ishmael and God will make him a great nation ,

Can you tell me WHAT IS THIS GREAT NATION GOD IS TALKING ABOUT ?

Now let us look at the following verse from the Bible

Deuteronomy 18:18 I will raise them up a Prophet from among their brethren, like unto thee, and will put my words in his mouth; and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him.

God says he will raise a prophet like unto thee - what does this means???

1) God is talking to Moses

2) Who is the prophet like unto thee?

a. Is it Jesus ???

b. If yes, why Jesus ???

c. IF No, who is he then ???

I will continue according to your reply to above

Submitting....
