Faith of Jesus Christ


He (thy seed) who is the only one believed is Jesus

In Genesis 15 verses 5 to 6, according to the original text (see footnote below) the LORD promised/prophesized he who the only one will believe in the LORD and become obedient unto death (his faithfulness) will become (is) thy seed. Thus in the verse Gen 15:6  "he believed in the LORD ...", the "he" is Jesus (thy seed). [Notice "thy seed" in singular not plural, thus the LORD reminds us again in Galatians 3:16 "Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ.")


Gen 15:5 And he brought him forth abroad, and said, Look now toward heaven, and tell the stars, if thou be able to number them: and he said unto him, So shall thy seed* be.
Gen 15:6 And he believed in the LORD; and he counted it to him for righteousness.1

1 15:5-6 and he said... Heb.: and he said unto him: So shall be thy seed, who believed in the LORD; and he (the LORD) counted it (his faithfulness--believing in the LORD and becoming obedient unto death) to him (thy seed) for righteousness.

    Yes! The “he” is the Jesus, thy seed, because only he believes. Only when Jesus lives in us do our eyes truly open.
