East Countries Of The World Are Part Of Descendants Of Abraham According To Bible

Genesis 25 : 1 - 6.

The word of God made us to understand that the people of East countries of world are parts of the descendants of Abraham. When Sarah, the first wife of Abraham died, He married another woman, called Keturah, this woman gave birth to six children for Abraham, mind you, the only begotten son that Sarah gave birth to in her old age was Isaac, called the son of laughter and promise. The names of the Keturah's children are Zimrah, Jokshan, Medan, Midian, Ishbak and Shaun (Genesis 25 : 2).

When the time came before the death of Abraham, he gave all that he had for Isaac, the son of promise which Sarah bare for him. Mind you, Hagar, Sarah's servant who hailed from African continent, precisely Egypt, also gave birth to a son for Abraham, named Ishmael, no sooner Sarah gave birth to Isaac than Abraham sent away Hagar and her son, Ishmael from home because he was not the promised son, and they went to wilderness of Paran, there they dwelled, when Ishmael matured, he married an Egyptian lady. (Genesis 21 : 9 -21).

Now, let us return to the children of Keturah that she bare for Abraham, I said earlier that, before Abraham's death, he gave all his properties to Isaac, being a promised chid, but all the children of Keturah were given gifts and sent away by Abraham, " And Abraham gave all that he had unto Isaac, but unto the sons of the concubines, which Abraham had, Abraham gave gifts, and sent them away from Isaac his son, while he yet lived, eastward, unto the east country." (Genesis 25 :5 ,6).

One can deduce from the above Bible verses that, Abraham's children which Keturah bare him were parts of the people of the east countries of the world.
