The Blesings Of Abraham.
Christians are beneficiaries of the blessing of Abraham. On accepting Jesus' death
on our behalf we were put into a New Covenant with God which is totally different
to the Law Covenant that the Children of Israel brought on themselves. As Christians

Galatians 3:11 Now it is evident that no one is justified

Acts 1:8 But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit
