Now it came to pass after these things that God (God Almighty) tested Abraham, and said to him, “Abraham!” And he said, “Here I am.” Then He (God Almighty) said, “Take now your son, your ONLY son, Isaac, whom YOU (Abraham) Love, and go to The Land of Moriah, and offer him (Isaac) there as a burnt offering on one of the mountains of which I (God Almighty) shall tell YOU (Abraham).” So Abraham rose early in the morning and saddled his donkey, and took two of his young men with him, and Isaac, his son; and he (Abraham) split the wood for the burnt offering, and arose and went to the place of which God (God Almighty) had told him (Abraham). Then on the third day, Abraham lifted his eyes and saw the place afar off. And Abraham said to his young men, “Stay here with the donkey; the lad (Isaac) and I (Abraham) will go yonder and worship, and We (Abraham and Isaac) will come back to YOU.” So Abraham took the wood of the burnt offering and laid it on Isaac, his son; and he (Abraham) took the fire in his hand, and a knife, and the two (Abraham and Isaac) of them went together. But Isaac spoke to Abraham, his father, and said, “My father!” And he (Abraham) said, “Here I am, my son.” Then he (Isaac) said, “Look, the fire and the wood, but where is the lamb for a burnt offering?” And Abraham said, “My son, God (God Almighty) will provide for Himself the lamb for a burnt offering.” So the two (Abraham and Isaac) of them went together. Then they (Abraham and Isaac) came to the place of which God (God Almighty) had told him (Abraham). And Abraham built an Altar there and placed the wood in order; and he (Abraham) bound Isaac, his son, and laid him (Isaac) on the Altar, upon the wood. And Abraham stretched out his hand and took the knife to slay his son (Isaac). But The Angel of The LORD (God Almighty) called to him (Abraham) from Heaven and said, “Abraham, Abraham!” So he (Abraham) said, “Here I am.” And He (The Angel of The LORD) said, “Do NOT lay your hand on the lad (Isaac), or do anything to him (Isaac); for now I (God Almighty) know that YOU (Abraham) fear God (God Almighty), since YOU (Abraham) have NOT withheld your son (Isaac), your only son (Isaac), from Me (God Almighty).” Then Abraham lifted his eyes and looked, and there behind him (Abraham) was a ram caught in a thicket by its horns. So Abraham went and took the ram, and offered it up for a burnt offering, instead of his son (Isaac). And Abraham called the name of the place, The-LORD-Will-Provide; as it is said to this day, “In The Mount of The LORD (God Almighty) it shall be provided.”
For the law, having a shadow of the good things to come, and NOT the very image of the things, can never with these same sacrifices, which they offer continually year by year, make those who approach perfect. For then would they NOT have ceased to be offered? For the worshipers, once purified, would have had no more consciousness of sins. But in those sacrifices there is a reminder of sins every year. For it is NOT possible that the blood of bulls and goats could take away sins. Therefore, when He (Jesus Christ) came into the World, He (Jesus Christ) said: “Sacrifice and offering YOU (God Almighty) did NOT desire, but a Body, YOU (God Almighty) have prepared for Me (Jesus Christ). In burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin YOU (God Almighty) had no pleasure. Then I (Jesus Christ) said, ‘Behold, I (Jesus Christ) have come, in The Volume of The Book (The Holy Bible) it is written of Me (Jesus Christ), to do Your Will, O God (God Almighty).’” Previously saying, “Sacrifice and offering, burnt offerings, and offerings for sin YOU (God Almighty) did NOT desire, nor had pleasure in them” (which are offered according to the law), then He (Jesus Christ) said, “Behold, I (Jesus Christ) have come to do Your Will, O God (God Almighty).” He (God Almighty) takes away the first, that He (God Almighty) may establish, The Second. By that (God Almighty’s) Will, We (Believers) have been Sanctified, through The Offering of The Body of Jesus Christ, Once for All. And every priest stands ministering daily and offering repeatedly the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins. But this Man (Jesus Christ), after He (Jesus Christ) had Offered One Sacrifice for sins, Forever, sat down at The Right Hand of God (God Almighty), from that Time, waiting till His (Jesus Christ’s) Enemies are made His (Jesus Christ’s) Footstool. For by One Offering, He (Jesus Christ) has Perfected, Forever, those (Believers) who are being Sanctified.
Abraham was willing to sacrifice, his one and only son, Isaac, to show his complete Faith, in God Almighty. In turn, God Almighty did Sacrifice His One and ONLY Son, Jesus Christ, to show His (God Almighty’s) Unconditional Love for His Creation, Mankind. Did YOU happen to notice, this is a great analogy, between Abraham and his son, Isaac, compared with God Almighty and His One and ONLY Son, Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ, The Lamb of God Almighty, The Lamb which was Slain. Just as the ram was sacrificed, in place of Isaac, Jesus Christ was Sacrificed, in place of sinners, Once for All. On the third day, God Almighty Raised Him (Jesus Christ) from the grave, Alive! Jesus Christ, The Lamb, God Almighty’s Sacrifice, Once for All, Our (Believers) Bridge to return, into God’s Immediate Presence, Forever, for Eternity!
Our (Believers) Faith, requires complete submission to The Will of God Almighty. This requires, acknowledging God’s Amazing Saving Grace AND accepting God’s Free Gift of Salvation. This requires, Repentance, asking God Almighty for Forgiveness of Our sins, with the full intent of turning away from sin and back towards Him (God Almighty). This requires, accepting Jesus Christ, as Our personal Lord and Savior. This requires, giving full and complete control of Our lives, over to Jesus Christ. This requires, welcoming Jesus Christ, to come abide within Us, through The Holy Spirit. Finally, this requires, We (Believers) share with others, what this means to Us, and for Us All.
May We (Believers) All, have The Faith, show Our Faith, and demonstrate Our Faith, with the same fullness of Abraham.
