ISAIAH 51
1
"Listen to me, all who hope for deliverance--all who seek the LORD! Consider the quarry from which you were mined, the rock from which you were cut!
2
Yes, think about your ancestors Abraham and Sarah, from whom you came. Abraham was alone when I called him. But when I blessed him, he became a great nation."

NOTE:
Abraham was called to be “a separate one”, “a called out one”. This is very clear in the Torah. This is verified by how God later called Abram (later Abraham) to leave his land to go do where God was leading him.

Galatians 3 is true, and we are called to follow our spiritual father, Abraham’s, example:
29
And if you belong to Christ [are in Him Who is Abraham's Seed], then you are Abraham's offspring and [spiritual] heirs according to promise.

See note below on meditation of the word “Hebrew”:

The original name for the people we now call Jews was Hebrews. The word "Hebrew" (in Hebrew, "Ivri") is first used in the Torah to describe Abraham (Gen. 14:13).

One tradition teaches that the word comes from the word "eyver," which means "the other side," referring to the fact that Abraham came from the other side of the Euphrates, OR REFERRING TO THE FACT ABRAHAM WAS SEPARATED FROM THE OTHER NATIONS MORALLY AND SPIRITUALLY.

***

We are called to make choices. No one else can make these choices for us. Not our mother, father, husband, or wife.

“….Abraham was alone when I called him. But when I blessed him, he became a great nation."

Jesus wants to demonstrate His Full Glory in the Body, as He prayed that we may be one even as He and the Father are one:

John 17 (Amplified)
21
That they all may be one, [just] as You, Father, are in Me and I in You, that they also may be one in Us, so that the world may believe and be convinced that You have sent Me.
22
I HAVE GIVEN TO THEM THE GLORY AND HONOR WHICH YOU HAVE GIVEN ME, THAT THEY MAY BE ONE [EVEN] AS WE ARE ONE

Yet… it all starts with an individual surrender and relationship with the Lord! Never underestimate the power of “the choice of one—surrendered to the One”.
