The Future Intended Seed
The Rabbis and the Old Testament writers agree someone hugely important is coming! The Old Testament spoke of a future King who would reign over the Earth, a future prophet who would be greater than Moses, a future priest who would be greater than Aaron. This person was called the Messiah or the anointed one; the New Testament referred to him as Christ. He was seemingly anticipated in Genesis 22 when Abraham attempted to sacrifice Isaac, an incredible picture of the sacrifice of Christ.
Then the angel of the LORD called to Abraham a second time from heaven, and said, “By Myself I have sworn, declares the LORD, because you have done this thing and have not withheld your son, your only son, indeed I will greatly bless you, and I will greatly multiply your seed as the stars of the heavens and as the sand which is on the seashore; and your seed shall possess the gate of his enemies. In your seed all the nations of the earth shall be blessed, because you have obeyed My voice” (Genesis 22:15-18).
Verse 17 in Hebrew stated that the future Abraham's seed will possess the gate of his enemies. The word his refers to one particular seed and Paul agreed with that in Galatians 3:16 when he said the seed was Christ. All through the Old Testament the Messiah or Christ was anticipated.
