Genesis 24:2 (c) In this passage Abraham is a type of the Father who sent His servant (the Spirit) to obtain a bride (Rebecca) for his son Isaac. The servant represents the Holy Spirit, and Isaac represents the Lord JESUS CHRIST. Of course, Abraham represents GOD the Father. Rebecca. represents the Church. The Holy Spirit knocks at the heart's door, tells of the loveliness, the riches and the glory of the Son of GOD, and thus wins the stranger and makes him willing to leave his old haunts and companions to live for and with JESUS CHRIST, the Son.

Romans 4:3 (c) He is a type of the true believer from the standpoint of "faith."

GOD revealed His secrets to Abraham, the man of faith, and so He does today to those who believe His Word.

Abraham was the father of the faithful, and we too who believe GOD should have spiritual children who have faith as we have.
