God’s Word is Absolute: Abraham's faith

2021-03-28 12:43
Sometimes, we feel difficult to follow some words of God, even if they were given by God. The reason is that our own thoughts take precedence over God’s words. So, we should remember that God’s word is absolute, and there can be no exception. And God’s word should not be judged by common sense.
As you know, God gave Abraham a special blessing and the honorable title of the “father of faith.” Because he had absolute respect for God’s command and believed that God’s word would bring forth a gracious result without fail.
Abraham granted Isaac as his heir according to God´s promise when he was 100 years old. But God again commanded him to offer Isaac, whom he love more than his life, in order to test whether or not he loved God absolutely.

Genesis 22:1-10 “..Take your son, your only son, whom you love ;Isaac; and go to the region of Moriah. Sacrifice him there as a burnt offering on a mountain I will show you..”

If Abraham had insisted on a common sense viewpoint, he would say “O God, why did You give me Isaac?” or “Why do You cause me pain by taking away my son?”. But he absolutely believed that life, death, fortune and misfortune of men depended upon God. So, he did not complain and was determined to offer Isaac as a sacrifice. On the instant, God gave him a tremendous blessing and the honorable title, saying “Do not lay a hand on the boy”.

Genesis 22:11-18 “..and through your offspring all nations on earth will be blessed, because you have obeyed me”

Absolute respect for God’s word brought him tremendous blessing.
Sometimes we turn away from the word of God because it is different from what we expect. However, if we realize that when God asks us to prepare something and put it into practice, it is for our own good, we can follow the absolute word of God, without insisting on our own thoughts or opinions.
Today, some arrogantly insist “It doesn’t matter whether we worship on Sunday or Saturday” or “God will be pleased with us, although we do not celebrate the Passover.” What do you think about this?
We need to understand God, who has given us commands to grant us His absolute blessing, and should obey God absolutely. Don’ t forget God always prepares beneficial results for us and grants them to those who believe and follow Him.

    We have to obey all the words of God!! Look at the Abraham. He obeyed all the words of God and receive the title, 'Father of the Faith'!! 🙂

    In the past, I thought that God's words are too difficult to keep them in my life. But, now, i want to be so faithful to them with all my heart. I am nothing but a heavenly sinner, who is doomed to face death in the lake of fire. Nevertheless, God wanted to save me into the heavenly kingdom. The way to be saved from this world is to be found out when I listen to God's word. Forefathers were all saved when they were so faithful to God's words. Indeed, God's words is the living water to our souls. When I acknowledge God's words in all circumstances, God will lead me to His kingdom.

    We should understand the will of God who gives us blessings for the glory of the Kingdom of heaven.
    I'll follow the word of God with a firm faith like Abraham.

    There was many time that my own thoughts take precedence over God’s words. Like abraham, I will believe that God’s word would bring forth a gracious result without fail.

    Those who believe God with their own thoughts will never be saved!!

  • 2021-03-30 13:05

    Amen. I want to be blessed with the same faith as Abraham by obeying God's word wholeheartedly.

  • 2021-03-30 13:06

    The word of God will be truth to those who believe, and test to those who do not.
    The word of God is given to us in love.
    But how I accept it depends on my state of mind and belief.
    I should always prepare and maintain my faith so that I can obey whatever God says.

  • 2021-03-30 13:07

    Like Abraham, the ancestor of faith, I will become a child who completely obeys all the words of God! When we obey God's Word, I trust God to grant overflowing blessings! The reason is that all of God's words and commands are for our salvation.

    In any age, when he absolutely believed and obeyed the Word of God, God gave him a great blessing beyond imagination. These past works have been left as lessons for us, and all of us living in the age of the Holy Spirit are obeying the word of God Elohim. We must realize that we can receive many blessings and salvation when we are absolutely obedient, and we must become heavenly children who can regard and follow Heavenly Father and Mother's words most absolutely.

    Some people keep the Sunday, Christmas and Thanksgiving day as their thoughts. But our thoughts are not important isn't it?
    We should focus only God's words whenever and wherever. We must abandon all our thoughts and follow only the words of God recorded in the Bible. And then we can receive the promise of salvation from God.
    I hope all God's people obey the Words of God absolutely.

    God's blessing is absolute. In order to obtain that, we need to have absolute faith as the forefather of faith had done. we who received Elohim God, God the Father and God the Mother, are the most blessed man who the angels envy. let's remember this fact.

    Amen!! The words of God are absolute. In every age, those who regarded God's word as absolute and obey it were blessed and saved. All of the history written in the Bible teach us how can we receive blessing of God. We should not add or subtract a word of God in our thoughts. We should absolutely obey God's word to enter the kingdom of heaven.

    Through the Bible's history, we can learn obedience toward God. It is a basic and essential attitude for God. So we must follow God's words with obedience by keeping Sabbath day and Passover. And lets follow more what God taught for us.
