Hagar the Horrible blessing

I We sing of Hagar the Horrible, yet she is a brilliant blessing - This late in April 2019; no not for April Fool's Day I must submit (a poem, at least) - here the reason we play II On a certain Sunday, when all true Christians join to pray To a LORD who loves all ("diversity, too, but let's STOP at "gay") Can't extend humanity to the brown and gray! MOST SERMONS: Hagar the Egyptian cannot be any good - Such have been the fare of feeding "my sheep" by a multitude Of professors of faith, theologians, doers of GOOD According to Peter's restoration steps: John, chapter 21 III Yet Hagar was a key to many a blessing An Egyptian, yes, but before there were any Islam or current nation Called Jews, or Israel, or the Twelve Tribes, except Abram - The Pagan from Haran, from Ur of Iraq, before then He and Sarai could not wait for God's Isaac, His time Like the best of us, they HELPED GOD - Tetragrammaton, as in YHWH! What a novel plan, Sarai: Use the womb of the servant, Hagar, To create your heir - no record of prayer, or talking with YHWH [YaHWaH] Before this polygamous deed, then casting her out for a "look"? (Do with your slave as you please, Abe who wifed Hagar,said to Sarai) But on the way back to Egypt - Surely at SHUR, the angelic Wall at Shur, Stopped Hagar the Horrible, because she was a key to AVRAM's goal! She submitted - better than Abe and Sarai - to God's Angel & instruction! The COVENANT (we talk a lot about it) was yet to be sealed ... The self-same day: he was 13 and Abram the Pagan, Ninety-Nine The slave-woman's son, circumcised with Abraham, the self-same day Isaac, The Son of Promise, would only come the next year! Read your Bible (the Twelve Kings first blessed upon Ishmael: God hears! Even the slaves & indentured, all colors, when they trust and obey Poor old Abe always had trust, but he didn't always obey ... Soon it will be the return of LORD of lords & residents: Judgment Day Read Genesis again, - and again - know why Hagar & Ishmael live on!
