Abdul Hakeem Omalay CANNOT ACCEPT the WILL of GOD when GOD REJECTED ISMAEL as a "SON" of ABRAHAM. (GENESIS 17:18-19)
So, Abdul Hakeem is trying to cite the BIBLICAL TEXTS referring to the FIRST-BORN CHILD.
Abdul Hakeem is INSISTING that ISMAEL is the FIRST-BORN CHILD of ABRAHAM.
But the question is: WHO WANTED ISMAEL as the "FIRST CHILD" of ABRAHAM?
WAS it GOD?
ISMAEL was BORN NOT because GOD WANTED HIM but BECAUSE SARAH and ABRAHAM CHOSE to HAVE HIM.
Now Sarai, Abram's wife, bore him no children. She had an Egyptian slave-girl whose name was Hagar, and Sarai said to Abram, "You see that the LORD has prevented me from bearing children; go in to my slave-girl; it may be that I shall obtain children by her." And Abram listened to the voice of Sarai.
So, after Abram had lived ten years in the land of Canaan, Sarai, Abram's wife, took Hagar the Egyptian, her slave-girl, and gave her to her husband Abram as a wife.
WHO WANTED ISMAEL?
SARAH and ABRAHAM. NOT GOD.
So, IN THE PLAN of GOD, ISMAEL CANNOT BE A PART because HE WAS BORN NOT OUT OF HIS WILL but OUT OF THE WILL of MERE MEN.
YOU will also SEE in GENESIS 16:3 that IT WAS NOT GOD who "GAVE HAGAR" as a "WIFE" of ABRAHAM.
Again, it was ONLY SARAH who GAVE HER SLAVE as her HUSBAND'S "WIFE."
So, ALL THIS is the WILL OF MERE MEN and NOT THE WILL of GOD.
And since YOU BELIEVE in ISMAEL, it shows that YOU ONLY OBEY the WILL OF MEN and NOT the WILL OF GOD. (MATTHEW 15:8-9)
