Abba Father…I have gazed attentively upon You in the Sanctuary and I have beheld Your Power and Your Glory. Formerly, my ears had only heard of You; but now my eyes have seen You and have seen Your Glory. [Ps 63:2; Job 42:5]
5th SARAH: THE TRUST OF FAITH UNTO LIFE. She considered God Who had given her the promise to be reliable and trustworthy and true to His word.
Faith trusts God to bring forth promised life
Sarah believed God to bring forth life from one who was as good as dead. She believed that what was impossible for man was possible with God, and she counted on Him to fulfill His promise in Divine power. What God would teach me from Sarah’s witness is this: she exhibits for me the trust of faith that encourages me to trust God, with an unwavering child-like trust and an unreserved child-like dependence, to bring forth within me that promised new life in the Holy of Holies secured for me by the Blood of Jesus. I myself am hopelessly powerless, hopelessly impotent, hopelessly helpless to bring forth this new life by my own efforts and in my own strength…just as impossible as it was for Sarah to bring forth naturally the life of the son of promise. She was long past the age to conceive a child, and Abraham was physically as good as dead. It was only by the power of God that Sarah was able to conceive; it is only by the power of the indwelling Holy Spirit that the wonderful promised new life in the Holy of Holies, which is my birth-right, can become a reality within me.
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:
