“GOD ‘Tested’ Abraham & ‘You’ – 101” …Blog.
*** (Gen 22:1-to-18) And it happened after these things that God tested Abraham, and said to him, Abraham! And he said, Behold me.
(Gen 22:2) And He said, Take now your son, your only one, Isaac, whom you love. And go into the land of Moriah, and offer him there for a burnt offering upon one of the mountains which I will name to you.
(Gen 22:3) And Abraham rose up early in the morning, and saddled his ass, and took two of his young men with him, and Isaac his son. And he split the wood for the burnt offering, and rose up and went to the place of which God had told him.
(Gen 22:4) Then on the third day, Abraham lifted up his eyes and saw the place afar off.
(Gen 22:5) And Abraham said to his young men, You stay here with the ass. And I and the boy will go on to this way and worship, and come again to you.
(Gen 22:6) And Abraham took the wood of the burnt offering and laid it on Isaac his son. And he took the fire in his hand, and a knife. And they both went together.
(Gen 22:7) And Isaac spoke to Abraham his father and said, My father. And he said, Here am I, my son. And he said, Behold the fire and the wood. But where is the lamb for a burnt offering?
(Gen 22:8) And Abraham said, My son, God will provide Himself a lamb for a burnt offering. So they both went together. [1Cor 5:7 Christ our Passover]
(Gen 22:9) And they came to the place which God had told him of. And Abraham built an altar there and laid the wood in order. And he bound his son Isaac and laid him on the altar, on the wood.
(Gen 22:10) And Abraham stretched out his hand and took the knife to slay his son.
(Gen 22:11) And the Angel of the LORD Jehovah called to him from the heavens and said, Abraham! Abraham! And he said, Here am I.
(Gen 22:12) And He said, Do not lay your hand on the lad, nor do anything to him. For now I know that you fear God, since you have Not withheld your son, your only one, from Me.
(Gen 22:13) And Abraham lifted up his eyes, and looked. And, behold, a ram behind him was entangled in a thicket by its horns. And Abraham went and took the ram and offered it up for a burnt offering instead of his son.
(Gen 22:14) And Abraham called the name of that place the LORD Jehovah Will See; so that it is said until this day, In the mount of Jehovah it will be seen. [Jehovah-Jireh… “The Lord will provide”… Genesis 22:13-14.]
(Gen 22:15) And the Angel of Jehovah called to Abraham out of the heavens the second time,
(Gen 22:16) and said, I have sworn by Myself, says Jehovah; because you have done this thing, and have not withheld your son, your only one;
(Gen 22:17) that in blessing I will bless you, and in multiplying I will multiply your seed like the stars of the heavens, and as the sand which is upon the seashore. And your Seed shall possess the gate of His enemies.
(Gen 22:18) And in your Seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed, because you have obeyed My voice.
*** (1Peter 4:12-13-14) Beloved, do Not be astonished at the fiery trial which is to try you, as though a strange thing happened to you,
(1Pe 4:13) but rejoice according as you are partakers of Christ's suffering, so that when His glory shall be revealed, you may be glad also with exceeding joy.
(1Pe 4:14) If you are reviled for the name of Christ, you are blessed, because the Spirit of God and of glory rests on you. Truly according to them, He is blasphemed, but according to you He is glorified. [Romans 8:9]
*** (1Corinthians 10:11-to-17) And all these things happened to them as Examples; and it is written for our warning on whom the ends of the world have come.
(1Cor 10:12) So let him who thinks he stands take heed lest he fall.
(1Cor 10:13) No temptation has taken you but what is common to man; but God is Faithful, Who will Not Allow you to be tempted above what you are able, but with the temptation also will make a way to escape, so that you may be able to bear it.
(1Cor 10:14) Therefore, my dearly beloved, flee from idolatry.
(1Cor 10:15) I speak as to wise men; you judge what I say.
(1Cor 10:16) The cup of blessing which we bless, is it not the communion of the blood of Christ? The bread which we break, is it not the communion of the body of Christ?
(1Co 10:17) For we, the many, are one bread and one body; for we are all partakers of that one bread. [Ephesians 4:4-to-7]
*** (Exodus 20:19-20) And they said to Moses, You speak with us, and we will hear. But let NOT God speak with us, lest we die.
(Exo 20:20) And Moses said to the people, Do not fear, for God has come to TEST you, and so that His fear may be before your faces, so that you may NOT Sin.
*** (Luke 12:5) But I [Jesus] will warn you of Whom you shall fear: Fear Him [GOD] Who, after He has killed, has authority to cast into hell. Yea, I [Jesus] say to you, fear Him [God].
*** (Job 28:28) And to man He said, Behold, the fear of the Lord; that is wisdom! And to depart from evil is understanding!

Do You remember the “FEAR”… caused by the Terrorist Attack of “9-11”…? Churches were FILLED with all sorts of People… Fearing another Attack! The USA “Nest Teams” were on High Alert… expecting a Nuclear Attack! The Public was “NOT” told about this possibility. The National Guard Troops were at… “Every Airtport Nationwide”… “Without Any Ammunition”… in their weapons: as only a “Show of Force!” Somehow that was supposed to give the American Public: some sense of… “False Security!” Even when traveling some 12+ years later, the “Airport Security Screening” is just a “Hollow Jester & A LIE” to the Public. “WHO” really protects a Nation or People…? It is the GOD of the Bible… “ALONE”…! Without His protection… “No Person or Nation”… has any security! GOD even keeps His Covenant People… ISRAEL… so that the Muslim Arabs… do NOT over run Jerusalem…!
(Psalms 121:4) Behold, He [God] Who keeps Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep.
Psalms 121:4 הנה לא־ינום ולא יישׁן שׁומר ישׂראל׃

[Isaiah 53:1-to-12]
re Me forever.
(Jer 31:37) So says the LORD Jehovah; If the heavens above can be measured, and the foundations of the earth below can be searched out, I will also cast off all the seed of Israel for all that they have done, says the LORD Jehovah.
*** (Ezekiel 37:26-27-28) And I [God] will cut a ‘covenant of peace’ with them. It shall be an ‘everlasting covenant’ with them. And I will place them, and multiply them, and will set My sanctuary in their midst forever.

Do You meet with HIM… “Daily”… in His Holy Word: and allow HIM to speak to You: through His Holy Word…? Please answer… “Yes or NO”…? Before You get upset with Me… are You OFFENDED: by such Questions…? Are You a Disciple of Christ, sharing His Truth: from His Holy Word… with Others..?

*** (2Corinthains 13:5) Examine yourselves; whether you are in the Faith; Prove your own selves. Do you not know your own selves; that Jesus Christ is in you [Romans 8:9]; unless you are Reprobates? [Ephesians 4:30]

Did “Christ JESUS”… Say… “Some”… “Few”… or… “MANY”… ?
He Christ, said… “MANY”…!
*** (Matthew 7:21-22-23) NOT Everyone = who says to Me [Jesus], Lord! Lord! shall enter the kingdom of Heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in Heaven.
(Matt 7:22) “MANY” = will say to Me in that day, Lord! Lord! Did we not prophesy in Your name, and through Your name throw out demons, and through Your name do many wonderful works?
(Matt 7:23) And then I [Jesus] will say to them = I never knew you! = Depart from Me, those working Lawlessness!

*** (2John 1:9-10-11) Everyone transgressing and Not abiding in the doctrine of Christ; does Not have God. He who abides in the doctrine of Christ, he has ‘Both’ the Father and the Son.
(2Jn 1:10) If ANYONE comes to you and does Not bring this doctrine; Do NOT receive him into your house; Nor speak a greeting to him.
(2Jn 1:11) For he who Speaks a greeting to him; Is “Partaker” of his EVIL deeds.
