We are living at a time of great confusion, we are living at a time of great debate and disagreement on what it means to be a follower of Jesus Christ. Spiritually, it seems like all the armies of the world are gathered together against a spiritual land, referred to in Gal. 4:26 as Jerusalem from above, the mother of us all. It is the Devil himself that has propagated the lie that our issues are with a carnal, earthly kingdom called “Israel” from below, when Gal. ch. 4 clearly says that this carnal earthly kingdom today is in bondage with her children and is compared to Hagar, the mother of Ishmael. Ishmael was not the child of promise, Isaac was the child of promise.
