The Bible with Commentary: Abram (Genesis 12)

“The Lord had said to Abram, “Go from your country, your people and your father’s household to the land I will show you. “I will make you into a great nation, and I will bless you; I will make your name great, and you will be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse; and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you.” – Genesis 12: 1-3

Abram is no ordinary human being, he has been chosen for a very specific task.

The Lord has chosen Abram to become a great nation, but not any nation, but a nation established with the blessings of the Lord Himself.

I’ll say it now and I’ll probably say it again, Abram is not an ordinary man.

The story of Abram is one of the greatest and darkest stories of human history, which one it is, depends on which side of history you currently stand.

If you are from among those who read the story literally and understand the Bible from an entirely literal standpoint, then there is nothing good about the story of Abram.

This is what I will prove to you, as I have done with all the Biblical stories before this one.

Interpreting from a literal standpoint instead of a mystical one, always distorts and corrupts the entire message of the story.

The Biblical stories are written in such a way that they’re meant to be understood only by a certain spiritual elite.

The masses of ignorant people are not meant to grasp the esoteric mysteries hidden within the Biblical narrative.

This is what Jesus meant when He said:

“Do not give dogs what is sacred; do not throw your pearls to pigs. If you do, they may trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you to pieces.” – Matthew 7:6

Jesus spoke about the mysteries that have been established among the Hebrews, since the coming of a man we nowadays know as Abraham.

“So Abram went, as the Lord had told him; and Lot went with him. Abram was seventy-five years old when he set out from Harran. He took his wife Sarai, his nephew Lot, all the possessions they had accumulated and the people they had acquired in Harran, and they set out for the land of Canaan, and they arrived there. Abram traveled through the land as far as the site of the great tree of Moreh at Shechem. At that time the Canaanites were in the land.” – Genesis 12: 4-6

There it is, the land of Canaan from where all the stories about the Hebrew God we call the LORD, have descended.

Take note that this is where the entire Biblical story really starts.

It starts with Abram’s arrival in the land of Canaan after he left his homeland of Harran.

“The Lord appeared to Abram and said, “To your offspring I will give this land.” So he built an altar there to the Lord, who had appeared to him.” – Genesis 12: 7

The Lord directly appears to Abram, which brings us back to something which I’ve kept saying before; when we were discussing God, while He was walking and talking with Adam in the Garden of Eden.

In the story of Noah for example we never read any details about God’s direct presence or appearance, merely that He inspires Noah to build an Ark.

While Noah was most likely only communicating with the Lord through dreams, visions and inspirational hunches; Abram communicates with the Lord on a whole other level.

The Lord directly appears to Him and just plainly says things to Him, like a man to man conversation.

This gives Abram the creativity to build altars to the Lord, He literally knew what the Lord looked like.

This is what I’ve been telling you from the beginning.

Yahweh, Jehovah, Elah, the LORD, Elohim or plainly said the God of the Hebrews is a physical being with a form.

Therefore He is forced to directly influence the lives of His people, because He is part of the world’s programming, like a part of Nature.

A powerful collective mental force which we do not fully comprehend yet.

“From there he went on toward the hills east of Bethel and pitched his tent, with Bethel on the west and Ai on the east. There he built an altar to the Lord and called on the name of the Lord. Then Abram set out and continued toward the Negev.” – Genesis 12: 8-9

Calling on the name of the Lord basically implies that Abram was proclaiming to the people in the region that he was a prophet sent by the Lord.

This is what the Lord demands of His chosen ones.

Abram has to become a great nation and in order to do so, he needs many followers.

He basically needs an army of loyal servants ready to do the Lords hard bidding.

Abram is merely the first of many, or the first among equals.

“Now there was a famine in the land, and Abram went down to Egypt to live there for a while because the famine was severe. As he was about to enter Egypt, he said to his wife Sarai, “I know what a beautiful woman you are. When the Egyptians see you, they will say, ‘This is his wife.’ Then they will kill me but will let you live. Say you are my sister, so that I will be treated well for your sake and my life will be spared because of you.” – Genesis 12: 10-13

Here we are starting to notice for the first time what a twisted man Abram really is.

He is willing to part with his own wife for a while and ready to give her to other men, only to save his own skin from starvation.

Abram is a hustler and a schemer, showing again that Yahweh the Hebrew God does not choose human beings out of their personal goodness and achievements, rather if the story is taken literally; He chooses the most flawed human beings out there.

“When Abram came to Egypt, the Egyptians saw that Sarai was a very beautiful woman. And when Pharaoh’s officials saw her, they praised her to Pharaoh, and she was taken into his palace. He treated Abram well for her sake, and Abram acquired sheep and cattle, male and female donkeys, male and female servants, and camels.” – Genesis 12: 14-16

The first thing Abram expected when he entered Egypt, is that he would be able to prostitute his own wife under the guise of being “his sister” to the Pharaoh.

What kind of a degenerate man would ever allow such a despicable thing to occur?

What kind of man would allow his own wife to be raped for personal gain?

But that is what I keep telling you, the Hebrew prophets were all degenerates and despicable beings, not worthy of praise, not worthy of being followed and neither examples of correct moral behavior in daily life.

More than often their lives serve as examples of what NOT to do.

Abram the exalted father of nations did not really exist, I simply can’t believe that such a literal interpretation can EVER be true.

Such a degenerate man has NEVER existed, and if he did, he would not have been chosen by God.

I honestly believe that the entire story of Abram MUST have a deeper meaning.

Otherwise the Bible is nothing but a perverted story for the mentally insane.

“But the Lord inflicted serious diseases on Pharaoh and his household because of Abram’s wife Sarai. So Pharaoh summoned Abram. “What have you done to me?” he said. “Why didn’t you tell me she was your wife? Why did you say, ‘She is my sister,’ so that I took her to be my wife? Now then, here is your wife. Take her and go!” Then Pharaoh gave orders about Abram to his men, and they sent him on his way, with his wife and everything he had.” – Genesis 12: 17-20

Am I the only one that sees this?

The Lord inflicts punishments upon the Pharaoh even though it was Abram that lied!

The Pharaoh literally asks Abram why he just didn’t tell him that Sarai was his wife… implying he would not have touched her if he knew this beforehand.

Abram simply used his own wife as a prostitute, like a pimp, trying to earn a quick buck.

It is one big money scheme that Abram pulled here and he obviously did not care about the ethics behind it all.

We’ve already established that Yahweh is not All-Knowing, so we can’t blame Him for cursing Pharaoh.
