Lunch With The LORD
Plain, factual statements by Jesus Christ, centuries after Abraham lived:
"1:18 No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him" (John 1:18 KJV)
"And the LORD appeared unto him ... in the heat of the day ... And he took butter, and milk, and the calf which he had dressed, and set it before them ... and they did eat"
The Son of God authoritatively stated that "No man hath seen God at any time" and yet through ancient times, right from the garden of Eden, numerous humans (e.g. Adam and Eve, Moses, Jacob and others - including in this example, Abraham and Sarah) have seen and spoken directly to "the LORD God," the One who would later be born as Jesus Christ e.g "10:1 Moreover, brethren, I would not that ye should be ignorant, how that all our fathers were under the cloud, and all passed through the sea; 10:2 And were all baptized unto Moses in the cloud and in the sea; 10:3 And did all eat the same spiritual meat; 10:4 And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ" (1 Corinthians 10:1-4 KJV; see also Christ The Creator).
The day before the LORD (i.e. Jesus Christ) incinerated Sodom, Abraham and Sarah (see the Fact Finder question below) had a mid-day meal with the LORD and two angels that accompanied Him. Elderly Abraham and Sarah were at that time given the news that they would become parents; a son, Isaac, would be born to them.
"18:1 And the LORD appeared unto him in the plains of Mamre: and he sat in the tent door in the heat of the day; 18:2 And he lift up his eyes and looked, and, lo, three men stood by him: and when he saw them, he ran to meet them from the tent door, and bowed himself toward the ground, 18:3 And said, My Lord, if now I have found favour in thy sight, pass not away, I pray thee, from thy servant: 18:4 Let a little water, I pray you, be fetched, and wash your feet, and rest yourselves under the tree: 18:5 And I will fetch a morsel of bread, and comfort ye your hearts; after that ye shall pass on: for therefore are ye come to your servant.
