(The Angel of the Lord)

Sunday, May 29, 2022


“The Angel of the LORD found her by a spring of water in the wilderness, the spring on the way to Shur. And he said, “Hagar, servant of Sarai, where have you come from and where are you going?” She said, “I am fleeing from my mistress Sarai.” The Angel of the LORD said to her, “Return to your mistress and submit to her.” The Angel of the LORD also said to her, “I will surely multiply your offspring so that they cannot be numbered for multitude.”

And the Angel of the LORD said to her,

“Behold, you are pregnant

and shall bear a son.

You shall call his name Ishmael,

because the LORD has listened to your affliction.

He shall be a wild donkey of a man,

his hand against everyone

and everyone’s hand against him,

and he shall dwell over against all his kinsmen.”


So, she called the name of the LORD who spoke to her, “You are a God of seeing,” for she said, “Truly here I have seen him who looks after me.” Therefore, the well was called Beer-lahai-roi; it lies between Kadesh and Bered. And Hagar bore Abram a son, and Abram called the name of his son, whom Hagar bore, Ishmael. Abram was eighty-six years old when Hagar bore Ishmael to Abram. (Genesis 16:7–16).


Review: Here are four Scriptures four our study.

I will make all my goodness pass before you and will proclaim before you my name ‘The LORD.’ And I will be gracious to whom I will be gracious and will show mercy on whom I will show mercy. But,” he said, “you cannot see my face, for man shall not see me and live.” (Exodus 33:19–20).


No one has ever seen God; the only God, who is at the Father’s side, he has made him known. (John 1:18).


No one has ever seen God; if we love one another, God abides in us and his love is perfected in us. (1 John 4:12).


Philip said to him, “Lord, show us the Father, and it is enough for us.” Jesus said to him, “Have I been with you so long, and you still do not know me, Philip? Whoever has seen me has seen the Father. (John 14:8–9).


He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. (Colossians 1:15).
