That really required pananampalataya

Totoo po yon, Ed! It boils down to pananampalataya sa Panginoong AMANG DIYOS, HESU KRISTO at BANAL na ISPIRITO; pananampalataya na tayo ay naligtas dahil lang sa biyaya/grasya ng Panginoong Diyos.
This verse definitely shows there’s a lot going on with Abraham offering Isaac up to sacrifice than at first appearance! Abraham had faith in God!
True, Jim! Abraham has unwavering faith in GOD from the beginning (bar telling Pharaoh that Sarah is his sister instead of trusting GOD). He has a solid notion of who GOD is along the way and what He will fulfill. Based on the account of the Hebrews writer, Abraham believes that GOD will raise Isaac if he proceeds in sacrificing him (Hebrewsa 11:19). Strong trust/faith indeed. I’m still working on it. Trivia, it took time for me to look for the ram–whose horns got caught in the bushes. I found one but I opted to use this picture instead of the ram.
He indeed have unwavering faith! Good picture choice brother!
Oh, you are awake already? I just updated my response after remembering a detail i.e. Abraham told Pharaoh that Sarah is his sister. Really? Actually, I kind of like the ram. Maybe it will come in handy if someday there will be a series on old testament stories.
I stayed up late. A series on OT stories would be neat!
You definitely have an unfading crown of glory, Jim, among other promises of GOD in heaven.
Aww thanks for the encouragement
That is what we do as GOD’s own. We all face a spiritual battle, we should encourage.
Indeed. God bless you with your blogging for the Lord
Thank you, Jim!
You’re up and awake already…
Yes and no. I went back to sleep until 11am.
Glad you went back to sleep!
Thank you, pastor! We have to strengthen you know, although, ideally by 12:00 AM, one should be sleeping already. A blessed Sunday ahead, Jim!
Have a blessed day! Still working on sermon prep at night here lol
Sometimes, it is better to write at night.
What faith Abraham had. He knew God and was confident in the outcome although he did know what that would be. He knew God would keep His promise.
At times I wonder how Isaac felt ?
True, Crissy! Such solid faith Abraham has. His faith to GOD solidified further along the way. Due to Isaac’s parents’ experiences with GOD, they probably told him several stories on trusting GOD. The first few minutes might be frustrating for Isaac after being betrayed but he probably understands there after. And we can’t discount the work of GOD in him. We will know the exact feeling he has when we chat with him in heaven.
Aww lovely explanation Clark ! Thank you 🙏
All praises to the Triune GOD who opens our minds, Crissy! A blessed Sunday ahead my friend! Good night! 🙂
The witness of Abraham’s devoted faith in God shines as a living example for our lives. Imagine our world filled with the faith of Abraham.
True, Bigsky Buckeye, it is a model to strive for and with the HOLY SPIRIT’s guidance, our faith in the Triune GOD will be strong. A world like that is already a heaven on earth i.e. the millennial Kingdom of our Lord, JESUS CHRIST.
Now that is faith in God!
True, Allan, a model for us if we deeply put our trust in the Triune GOD (dispite worldy concerns etc). In the end, we are glad that there is saving grace from GOD the FATHER through JESUS CHRIST our Lord and Savior.
Great scenic picture by the way!
Thanking GOD for the free pictures sites.
