    You are correct. God richly blessed Abraham and his descendants. Not only Issac, and Jacob. But God also blesses Ishmael and his seed.
    Genesis 17:20
    And as for Ishmael, I have heard thee: Behold, I have blessed him, and will make him fruitful, and will multiply him exceedingly; twelve princes shall he beget, and I will make him a great nation.


    But we know the promise came thru Jacob. He foretold this to Abraham, saying:
    Genesis 22:18
    And in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; because thou hast obeyed my voice.


    We know the seed (being one) was Christ Jesus. And Ishmael was a descendant of Abraham also who was blessed in the seed.

    Right. Just like the rich man, Israel is "thriving". Material wealth is the only thing that matters and spiritual well being not mattering. I understand now.
    James 4:10 Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up.

    It's unfortunate you fail to see beyond your personal agenda. I take nothing away from spiritual wellbeing, however, my focus here is God's promise to bless Abraham and his descendants materially. Perhaps, you should avail yourself with Bro TMarcum's post #1231?

    Very true indeed. Thanks for the scriptures.
