APOSTLE PAUL EXPLAINED THE SPIRITUAL DIFFERENCES BETWEEN ISHMAEL AND  ISAAC.

Apostle Paul taught the Galatian believers about the differences between the Law of Moses and Faith in Jesus. Using an allegory, he compared Abraham’s two sons Isaac and Ishmael to show the differences. Ishmael pertained to bondage and Isaac to liberty in Christ.  Mohamed and his followers continue in the pattern of Ishmael, just as satan intended from the beginning.

TABLE 1:   SPIRITUAL DIFFERENCES BETWEEN ISHMAEL AND ISAAC


Ishmael Isaac Notes
Son of the bondmaid Son of the free woman  

 

Born after the flesh – by Abraham’s and Sarah’s desire and not the will of God. The son that God promised to Abraham and Sarah. He is called the son born after the spirit 

 

 

 

Ishmael represents Mount Sinai or Agar in Arabia. Mount Sinai answers to Jerusalem. Isaac represents Jerusalem Mohamed was born in Saudi Arabia. 

Faith supersedes legalism.

 

Sinai represents bondage/the Law. Islam is based on legalism.
 

Ishmael persecuted Isaac, the son born after the Spirit.

Islam persecutes Jews and Christians. http://thepersecuted.com 

Ishmael was put out of the home because Sarah said that the son of the bondwoman would not be heir with her son The son of the free-woman became Abraham’s heir Believers in Christ are children of the freewoman, through whom Christ came.
