The Kingdom of Ur

Five thousand years ago
In the Kingdom of Ur
God speaks to Abraham
Isaac's death seems assured
"Sacrifice your son
Just like other God's say
I own you now Abe
To please you must slay".

But God in distinction 
To the culture of Ur
Where favors are won
By sacrifice not love
On top of Moriah
Gives resurrection life
Tells Abraham to stop
And withhold his knife.

The Kingdom of darkness
Is the Kingdom of Ur
Shows us it's death
How that Kingdom works
Nothing has changed
It's the same today
One Kingdom gives life
The other takes away.


Note: atheist John Dawkins says one reason he is an atheist is because when he was a child, he heard the story of Abraham. He thought how can a God of love tell a faithful servant to sacrifice his child to test his faith. 

Fact: in the culture of the Ur, the father owned the child, and the god of that man owned the man. So child sacrifice was the norm. God was showing us the different between Himself, and other gods; the kingdom of darkness, and the Kingdom of God; law and grace. How ?. In Ur, there was death to please a god. In Abraham we see A God who wants to give resurrection life. 2 kingdoms in contrast.

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
