Abba Father…I find my home and my resting place in the shadow of the Almighty, sheltered in the arms of my God. Whom have I in Heaven but You, Father? And Earth has nothing I desire besides You. [Ps 91:1; Ps 73:25]
1st ABEL: THE SACRIFICE OF FAITH. In Abel you see how faith makes death to self the entrance to the path to life. Faith is the primary prerequisite to gain entrance into the Holy of Holies and the abiding Presence of God.
Then ENOCH: THE WALK OF FAITH. The walk of faith brings the blessing of a life of unbroken fellowship with God in the Holy of Holies.
3rd NOAH: THE WORK OF FAITH. Faith saves others from death by the work it does for them. You are now called along with Noah to do the work of faith that can bless and save those around you…this is the fruit of the tree, produced by the work of the Holy Spirit dwelling within you.
4th ABRAHAM: THE OBEDIENCE OF FAITH. Obedience is the very essence of faith. In the very nature of things, it is impossible to receive God without receiving His will.
Now 5th, SARAH: THE TRUST OF FAITH UNTO LIFE
By faith Sarah herself received physical power to conceive a child, even when she was long past the age for it, because she considered God Who had given her the promise to be reliable and trustworthy and true to His word. So from one man [Abraham], though he was physically as good as dead, there have sprung descendants whose number is as the stars of heaven and as countless as the innumerable sands on the seashore. [Heb 11:11-12]
She counted Him faithful Who promised
Sarah’s faith in God to do what was impossible for man found its strength in this: she counted Him faithful Who had promised. She looked to the promise; she considered Him Who had given it; she rested on His faithfulness. Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for He Who promised is faithful. [Heb 10:23]
Friends, brothers and sisters…
There is one absolutely necessary preparation for every living soul on the face of this Earth, for the soon coming and imminent return of Jesus Christ…the one preparation that will irrevocably determine in which neighborhood you will spend all eternity, whether in Heaven or in Hell. You must be a born-again child of God. I tell you the truth, unless you are born again, you cannot be in God’s Kingdom. I tell you the truth, no one can ever enter the Kingdom of God unless you are born of water and the Spirit. Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit gives birth to spirit. You should not be surprised at My saying you must be born again. [Jesus…John 3:3-7]
If you have never been born again,
or you are not sure whether you have been born again,
or you have been living your life as a lukewarm Christian and would now like to recommit your life and enter into a deep and intimate relationship with Christ Jesus in preparation for the soon coming marriage supper of the Lamb…
then I counsel you to get alone with God, read the solemn marriage vows you must make to become the bride of Christ and thereby be born-again, [https://preservechristianfamily.org/2019/01/21/bride-of-christ/], and with sincerity of heart from within the depths of your being, acknowledge before God, “I DO.”
He walks with me and He talks with me:
