God’s Unchanging Agenda 8 of 32

What we do with God’s grace does matter. In our age, we should be alert to the offer to accept the “mark of the beast.” Any electronic, halographic, tattoo, or other mark that promises the exclusive ability to buy and sell should be eschewed if we are to avoid even more trouble in life and consequences after life (Rev. 16:2f; 19:20f). Let’s keep trusting in Christ no matter the challenges we face. Nothing we experience is worthy to be compared to the glory that is to be revealed in us.

 

8) SCRIPTURE Gen. 22:1-18 Abraham trusts God during extreme testing and the promise to bless all families of the earth through him is reiterated by God (“Angel of the Lord” in the O.T. signifies the Pre-Incarnate Christ) (Gen. 22:18; Heb. 11:17-19).

 

REFLECT How did Abraham express trust in God during the trip to Mt. Moriah (Gen. 22:5, 8)?

 

REFLECT What did Abraham’s obedience signify to the Angel of the Lord (Gen. 22:12)?
