. it is vital that we hear this Word of God by the Spirit of God.

. two brothers. Isaac and Ishmael. Ishmael was the natural firstborn.

. the firstborn of the flesh.

. Sarah told Abraham: “Cast him out”.

. Abraham was very grieved. (he would have given the firstborn blessing to Ishmael).

. Abraham went to the Lord about it.

. the Lord said: “Do what she said”.

. Abraham did what Sarah said and cast out Ishmael.
