The Heavenly Father is Your Shield and Great Reward
Noah had a son named Shem and Shem had a son named Elam. Elam later became a tribe. They built cities and vanquished Babylon, and later became the Persian empire. Iran’s history is traceable through Elam.
Abraham was ten generations from Noah’s flood. During this time, many left the truth of God. Less than four hundred years after the flood, God spoke to Abram on a one-to-one basis and told him to leave Ur of the Chaldees, where many had become worshippers of idols and demonic spirits. Abram’s father also worshipped idols. Abram moved to the land of Canaan where he continued to serve the true God of Noah and Adam.
God brought Abram from the Ur to move him to Canaan to fulfil the plan God had for the redemption of mankind. Besides Jesus, the greatest plan was fulfilled by Abraham. God could not find another person in the land of Canaan itself nor anywhere else. God always has a man or a woman somewhere who will fulfil His plan. Abraham never strayed away from God but was a worshipper of the Almighty God.
