STATEMENT:
“Abram threw himself on his face; and God spoke to him further: “As for Me, this is My covenant with you: You shall be the father of a multitude of nations. And you shall no longer be called Abram, but your name shell be Abraham, for I make you the father of multitude of nations.”
I wish that “multitude of nations” see in my self
portrait all people, because we have only ONE father, and He see everything from our ayes. We have three religions, different countries or different languages, but we are SAME in ayes of God.
