The Bibles Faith Hall of Fame (Abraham)

Abraham was inducted into the faith hall of fame. Hebrews 11:11-12 (GWT) 11 Faith enabled Abraham to become a father, even though he was old and Sarah had never been able to have children. Abraham trusted that God would keep his promise. 12 Abraham was as good as dead. Yet, from this man came descendants as numerous as the stars in the sky and as countless as the grains of sand on the seashore.

Even at an old age Abraham was told he was going to have children, and being human he laughed but he knew if God told him it was going to happen than it would. Could you even imagine how Sarah felt when Abraham came in and told her that she was going to have a baby even though she was in her 90’s.

Hebrews 11:17-19 (GWT) 17 When God tested Abraham, faith led him to offer his son Isaac. Abraham, the one who received the promises from God, was willing to offer his only son as a sacrifice. 18 God had said to him, “Through Isaac your descendants will carry on your name.” 19 Abraham believed that God could bring Isaac back from the dead. Abraham did receive Isaac back from the dead in a figurative sense.

Some things to thank about and look up when you get time. Some scholars think that Isaac was close to 33 years old when Abraham took him to be sacrificed, which would have made him the same age as Jesus when He was crucified. The place that Abraham took Isaac to be sacrificed was called Mount Moriah, which is now located just inside the city of Jerusalem next to where Jesus was crucified at the place of the skull which is outside the city. Isaac was Abraham only son at the time, and Jesus is Gods only son to be sacrificed. Abraham told Isaac that God will provide and God did provide a ram that was caught up with a thorn-bush around his head, and Jesus had a crown of thorns placed on his head. The blood of the ram was for the cleansing of their sins and the blood of Christ was shed for our sins. Abraham knew that God could have raised Isaac from the dead if he had sacrificed him and Jesus did raise Himself from the dead, praise God for that.
