Hello, My friends. This 'series' will hopefully help you to - PRAY/PRAISE. We miss so very much, waste so much time, worrying and planning and re-planning, and worrying, blah. blah. blah. There must be a better way, right? Well, some good news. There is a God in Heaven who is - listening for the prayers of the saints and others.
Continuing here in 'Sanctuary' this month, from Wednesday, April 4, 2018, Sunday, April 8, 2018, let us continue with our focus on 'Prayers in the Morning', 'Praises in the Evening'. Enjoy every opportunity to be 'focused' when in the presence of the Lord. Amen. Amen.
So, let's see how people prayed in the past, and how the Good Lord heard and answered their prayers. Why? Simply because God does not change. What we see, what is revealed to us in the Bible, is what can happen for each of us. God wants us to 'know' that 'He is', and, that 'He is there to hear', and 'to answer our prayers'.
[Psalm 110:4;Malachi 3:6; Hebrews 1:12] audio-bible.com/bible/bible.htlm
Pray - To talk with God, and, to listen to God talk to us. Be prepared 'to hear and to obey'. [James 1:19-25]
POST 1, JONAH, APRIL 4, 2018, POST 2, 'Eve'. APRIL 8, 2018. Continuing today, Wednesday, April 11, 2018, Sunday, April 15, 2018, and Wednesday, April 18, 2018 POSTS 3A-B-C, let us look over a few posts at Abraham and Sarah, and God's promise to them about a 'son', even in their old age, Then, we will also check out God's answered prayer to another older couple, Elisabeth and Zachariah. For you see, God has definitive plans for each child born, and, nothing is impossible with God. [Genesis 18:14] Amen. Amen.
ON THE FIRST PART 3A OF OUR POSTS, IT WILL HELP YOU GET A FIRM FOUNDATION ON THE 'PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP' 'GOD INITIATED' AND 'DEVELOPED WITH ABRAM'. FURTHER, YOU WILL SEE HOW THE GOOD LORD 'WORKED WITH ABRAM THE MAN', AND 'DEVELOPED' HIM FOR THE CHILD HE WAS TO HAVE WITH HIS WIFE, SARAI. TO ACCOMPLISH THIS, PLEASE READ GENESIS CHAPTERS 12-22. THE LORD GOD 'CHOOSES' ABRAM OF UR OF THE CHALDEANS.
If you have never read Genesis 1-11, that would be advised, as well. For up until Abram, the Good Lord was dealing with the entire world. However, after the 'tower of Babel' of Genesis 11:1-9, then the Good LORD began to single out and deal with one man - Abram. The Good Lord begins to 'fine tune' His plan for His One and Only Begotten Son, Jesus Christ. And, He chose, Abram of Ur of the Chaldeans in furtherance of His plan for 'the promised Seed of the Woman'. [Genesis 3:15] God will protect the genealogy for Jesus Christ, and build a 'nation', a 'type' of His Eternal Plan and 'family' for the 'Kingdom of God'.
The 'history' of the Good LORD'S dealings with Abram/Abraham and Sarai/Sarah began after hundreds of years had passed from Creation. [Genesis 1-2]; after the Fall [Genesis 3], after the Flood [Genesis 6-8]; after Noah, [Genesis 8-10]; and after the Tower of Babel,[Genesis 11:1-9. [Man's Rebellion - God's Mercy and Judgment]
Beginning at Genesis 11:9 through the end of Genesis God works with ONE FAMILY. That family began when The LORD GOD 'singled out' one man, again, as He had done with Adam, and Noah. He was about to change the course of His dealings with 'Fallen Man', to ultimately 'redeem' him.
In this 'beginning', He called to Abram, the son of Terah, the son of Shem, the son of Noah, in the land of Ur of the Chaldeans. His call was for Abram to 'Get out of your country, from your family and from your father's house, to a land that I will show you. I will make you a great nation; I will bless you and make your name great; and you shall be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you; And I will curse him who curses you; And in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.' [Genesis 12:1-3] This is known as 'the Abrahamic Covenant'. It pertains to the rule of God and is unconditional, based solely on the 'grace of God' to bring it about. ['I will'] It is unchangeable.
God's covenant with Abraham provides specifically that there will be blessings in three areas - a. national; b. personal; and c. universal - through one man, Abraham, [a great nation, a great name, and all the families of the earth will be blessed].
As you read [on your own] the 'dealings of God with Abram', from Genesis Chapters 12-14, you will see how closely the 'personal relationship' is developed between God and Abram. You also see that when God spoke, Abram knew that this was 'God', and exactly what God was telling him to do. And, Abram adjusted and obeyed God each step of the way. When he 'got ahead of the Lord', [loss faith]. he repented and the relationship continued, as God was patient and merciful. The Good Lord is the same, today.
Then, when you get to Genesis Chapter 15 at verse 6, when almost ten years had passed since the original promise of Genesis 12:1-3, and after Abram had obeyed the LORD, you see that the Good LORD came to Abram in a vision and in discussion, reassuring and promising again, saying, 'This one [Abram's slave Eleizer] shall not be your heir, but one who will come from your own body shall be your heir.' [Genesis 15:4] Notice how the LORD is always 'present', just as with Adam and Eve in the 'Garden', anticipating what is on the heart and mind of Abram. [Genesis 2] Further, the Good LORD promised Abram that his 'descendants' would be as numerous as the stars of the heavens. [Genesis 15:5]. Thankfully, to Abram's credit - '..he believed in the LORD and He accounted it to him for righteousness.' [Genesis 15:6] The 'covenant' was 'cut' with sacrifices. [Genesis 7-20]
AN IMPORTANT - SIDE NOTE: This is 'faith', that is 'saving faith'. We take God at His Word. [For more, see Romans 4:1-4; 9-25 for a fuller explanation of why Abram/Abraham is known as 'the father of the faithful' - all who believes just as he did - taking God at His Word.
For this post, take your time to read all the chapters, and on Post 3B on April 15, 2018, we will continue to look at a couple whose lives exemplify - a 'biblical marriage', with both, the husband and the wife, walking in 'faith' with the Living and Loving LORD. May you hear Him speak to you, as you study Genesis Chapters 1-11; 12-22. Amen. Amen. ]
