Did Yeshua do away with his Father's laws? He said, “I did not come to abolish the law or the prophets!  
 (Matt 5:17; 18; 19; 20)
The Son obeyed his Heavenly Father's commandments and glorified the way of the law.              
 (Ps 1:2; 40:7-9; 10;   119:142; Is 42:21)   
 Yeshua emphasized the weightier matters of the law by connecting justice, mercy, and faithfulness. 
(Matt 23:23; Ho 4:6; 8:12; Hab 1:4; Mic 7:6; Zec 7:12; Mal 4:4-5; 6; Is 5:24; 8:16-17; 18)   
Law is the recognition of the truthful and unchanging moral character of Eloheyem the Creator and Life giver.
    Two complementary facets of law are demonstrated within justice and mercy. Justice protects lawful agreements and corrects inequities. Mercy demonstrates judicial restraint by limiting punishment for lawbreaking and offering an opportunity for reconciliation. Showing mercy is justified if the disobedient are restored to lawful compliance.
 (Hosea 6:6-7)
  The third facet of law is faith. Trust is essential to build a foundation for a faithful unifying relationship within a covenant agreement. The invisible attributes of law are revealed in the dynamic structures of nature, the inter-relationship of life and the sensitivity of moral conscience.

   The law existed before the physical creation and is established by the governing authority of the Eternal Father of Spirit. 
(Deut 4:35; 36; Mk 12:29; 30; 31) Eloheyem forms the human family by uniting a man and woman in a marriage covenant.. The covenant agreement is beneficial for a loving bond and the conceiving and raising of children. 
(Ge 1:27; 28; 2:24; Mal 2:15; Psa 94:12) Parents are naturally invested with the responsibility to train every child with reflective insights discerning right from wrong. Law is essential for inter-relational behaviors that require rules of respect and equity within human relationships. 
(Pr 1:7; 8; Rom 13:9; 10)
  Accompanying the superseding authority of Elohim the Father is the essence of free will within each person. The freedom of personal choice reveals the intent of the heart and mind by accentuating the corporeal limits of self awareness or extend the spiritual conscience to include a growing sensitivity for human companionship.  
(Rom 8:5; 6-8; 9; 1Cor 1:9; Psa 55:14; 2Cor 13:14; Phil 2:1; 2; 3; 4-5; 6-7)The mature conscience is intently aware of law and the governing authority of the Father of the Elohim family. 
(Heb 5:8-9; Pr  10:17)
  The responsibility of parenting begins by mirroring the desired behaviors.  
(1Cor 9:27; Deut 6:4-5; 6-7) Emulating self-control through introspection and the heart felt longing to observe the influential effects intended by communicating life protecting morals. 
(Pr 6:23; Eph 6:4) Parenting may precipitate a flood of judgments when instructing an inattentive or unresponsive child.
 (Pr 13:24; 15:5; 32; 22:15) Correcting or punishing disobedience is a necessary act of justice for the purpose of teaching the reality of cause-and-effect.  
(Pr 23:13; Heb 12:5; 6-7; 8-9; 10; 11; Rev 3:19) Approval of right behavior encourages a child to continue in seeking the desired will of the parent. 
 (Pr 19:20;  23:15-16; 2Ti 1:7; Jas 2:8) The goal of parenting is a mature and loving relationship united by shared virtues of justice, mercy and the faithfulness of True Love that abides forever in the Eloheyem Family.
 (Pr 3:1-2; 3-5; 6-8; Matt 19:19)

 TRUE LOVE: UNCONDITIONAL or COVENANT ?


In the Beginning: LAW, JUSTICE and FAITH
  
  The human family began when Adam and Eve were created in a Covenant relationship with their Heavenly Father. Their bond of peace and love was broken because of sin. (Isa 43:26-27)  Their 1st son Cain listened to the spirit of Satan and followed the way of sin and lawlessness by killing his righteous brother Abel 
(Heb 11:4; 1Jn 3:12). Adam and Eve's 3rd son Seth cried out to Logos for guidance 
(Ge 4:26; 2:9; Pr 3:13-15;16-18; 11:30; Re 2:7; 22:1; 2). Seth desired the promised restoration of the Covenant Tree of Life. Seth and his son Enosh began a family that pursued righteousness and obedience to the Way of the Eternal.  In the 6th generation from Seth; Enoch became a preacher of righteousness 
(Ge 5:24; Heb 11:5; Jud 14; 15) 
  In the 10th generation;Noah continued the teachings of righteousness and feared the Eternal's judgment against lawless and rebellious mankind 
(Ge 6:9;11-12; 13; Heb 11:7; 1Pe 3:19; 20; 2Pe 2:5). Noah listened to Logos warning and saved his family from the flood. From the Beginning to the flood's end the Genesis of mankind extended 1567 years.  Logos remembered the promises made to Adam and Eve by renewing His Covenant with Noah and his family.
 (Ge 1:27; 28;  9:1-2; 6; 11; 12-13)
 Noah's son Shem honored his father and followed the teaching of righteousness. But Ham followed the way of Cain's sin and rebellion and caused division and injustice.
(Ge 9:22-23; 24-25; 26-27; 28-29)


UNITY for GOOD or EVIL ?


Ge 8:4; After the flood, Noah and his family traveled eastward from the mountains of Ararat. 
(Ge11:1-2; The families of Noah's sons shared a common language and gradually dispersed throughout the fertile Euphrates valley. Noah's son Ham had a  grandson named Nimrod. 
Ge 10:8-9; 11:3; 4) Nimrod was a mighty hunter and desired to unite all the families under his leadership. Nimrod influenced many families to trust him for protection instead of looking to logos for guidance and security. The name of Nimrod would be great if he could construct a city to honor himself. Many families joined in the project of creating a towering wonder that would reach to the clouds.


Ge 11:5-7; 8-9; The Eternal  Logos realized that the people were being drawn away from faithful obedience to their Heavenly Father's commandments. So the Eternal confused their language and scattered the people across the earth according to their family groups. This prevented the world from being united together for one great project of evil. Later Nimrod continued to build cities and expand his conquests to form a world ruling empire. 
(Ge 10:10-12; 1Chr 1:10; Na 1:2; 8; 11; 14; 3:1; 4; 8-9; 19) Nimrod developed the worship of idols formed like humans and animals. He also used the observance of the sun, moon and stars to manipulate people into believing in astrological influences. Human ancestors were deified and worshiped as gods with the help of demonic deceptions!!! Many false religions trace their  origin to Mesopotamia and Babylon.
(Da 7:1; 2-3; 4; 5; 6; 7; 8; Re 6:2;  17:1; 2; 3; 4; 5; 6; 12:3; 7-8; 9; 13:1; 2; 3; 4; 11; 12; 13; 14) The succeeding empires of the Medo Persian, Greek, and Roman dominions promoted their own variation of the Babylonian religious mythologies. The mysterious deceptions and distorted beliefs corrupted the minds of people that no longer accepted the knowledge of the true Creator Yehawah. The prophet Daniel envisioned animals portraying these Empires with Beast like nature and their pagan religions are the seductive deceptions of a harlot.

 (Ps 119:53; Pr 28:4) Shem's descendants must resist Nimrod's Satanic influence that would cause many future battles between good and evil . The sons of Noah would guide their families to form the great nations. Japheth was Noah's oldest son and his descendants traveled to the far East and even sailed the oceans. The ancestors of Noah's youngest son Ham occupied Central Asia and North Africa. 
(Ge 10:1-2; 6-8)

The families of Shem populated the Medo-Persian and the future European territory. Shem lived 500 years after the flood and his 5 sons, grandson and great-grandson lived over 400 years. They were men of renowned and heroic figures that became mythological folklore because of their great age. 
(Ge 10:21-23; 24-25; Shem's great-grandson Eber became the father of the Hebrew speaking people. 

(Ge 11:16-17; 14:2) Eber lived 464 years and his name means: to move beyond.  As the populations increased so did the lawlessness and barbarism of mankind.

Just 352 years after the flood; in the Chaldean city of Ur near the Euphrates Delta and during troubled times a son was born named Abram. 
(Ge 11:27-28; 29-30; 31)


WAY to the TREE of LIFE (Ge 3:22; 23; 24)
and the PROMISED SEED (Ge 3:14; 15)


The path to eternal life is now spiritual warfare. (Eph 6:11; 12) 
The great patriarch Noah; "the preacher of righteousness",  died 3 years before Abram's birth. When Abram is 75 yrs. old; his father Terah died in Haran.  
Ge 12:1; 4; 5; Logos spoke to Abram and walked with Abram on the journey to the land of Canaan. Now it is 2,084 yrs. after the covenant with Adam.  Logos renews His covenant of Life with Abram. 
Ge 12:2-3; Abram reached Shechem at the great tree of Moreh; which means Teacher.
 (Ge 12:6; 7; 1Jn 2:13; 14; Ro 12:21; Lk  10:18-19; Re 12:9; Ge 3:14; 15; Re 3:21; 1Jn 5:1-2; 3-4; 5; Ga 3:16; 29) Logos promised Abram that his seed would inherit the land. Abram's future seed would be the Savior and conquer Satan's evil reign over mankind.
 Ge 12:8; Abram traveled further and camped near the House of Eloheyem at a distance from a heap of mankind's ruins named Ai. 
  (Ps 116:17-19; 18:3; 31:17-18; 19; 23-24; 80:18-19; 145:18-20; Isa 55:6-7; 8-9; 11; Jer 29:11; 12-13; Pr 2:1-3; 4-6; 7-9; 10-12) Abram worshiped the Eternal and walked with Logos; calljng out to Him for guidance. 

Abram, Sarai and their accompaniment went to Egypt. Abram learned that he could trust Logos to prtect his family from the dangerous Pharaoh .
Ge  12:10; 11-13; 14-15; 16; 17-18; 19-20; Everyone in Abram's company left Egypt and returned to camp near Bethel the House of Eloheyem.
 (Ge 13:1-2; 3-4; Pr 3:1-2; 3-5; 6-8; 11-12; Heb 12:9; 10; 11; 14) Abram continued to call out to Logos for guidance. 
    Ge 13:5-6; 7-8; 9-10; 11; 12-13; At that time Abram's nephew Lot parted company. Lot moved his family east to the Jordan plain and camped on the pastures near Sodom. Abram continued to sojourn in the land Logos promised as a future inheritance.
     Ge 13:14-15; 16-17; 18; Abram honored Logos by living righteously and peacefully associated with the people of Hebron. 


MELCHIZEDEK  KING of PEACE...(Ge 14:18-19)  

Ge 13:13 ; Now the men of Sodom were wicked and were sinning greatly against Logos the Eternal.
Ge 14:1; 2; 3;  The hope of world dominance led to the alliance of four kings; Amraphel (fall of the sayer and king of Shinar = country of two rivers), 
Arioch (iron like and king of Ellasar = god is chastener), 
Kedorlaomer (handful of sheaves and king of Elan = eternity) and 
Tidal (great son and king of Goiim = nations) 
went to war against the five kings; 
Bera ( son of Evil and king of Sodom = Burning), 
Birsha ( Iniquity and king of Gomorrah = submersion), 
Shinah (splendor of the father and king of Admah = red earth) ,
Shemeber (lofty flight and king of Zeboiim = gazelles), 
and the king of Bela = destruction and later called Zoar = insignificance). 
3 All these latter kings joined forces in the Valley of Siddim (the Salt Sea).
Ge 14:11–12;  The four kings seized all the goods of Sodom and Gomorrah and all their food; then they went away. 12 They also carried off Abram’s nephew Lot and his possessions, since he was living in Sodom.
Ge 14:13; 14; 15; 16;  One who had escaped came and reported this to Abram the Hebrew.  Abram assembled 318 of his mighty men and pursued the 4 kings. Abram's faith and wisdom from Logos guided the victory over the 4 kings; "that thought they were the armies of god". 
Ge 14:17; Abram returned Lot and all the people after defeating Kedorlaomer and his allies.  Abram met Melchizedek in the Valley of Shawah (means: to become alike). Melchizedek king of Shalom (Peace) greeted Abram and Blessed him. 
(Ge 14:18-19; 20; Jn 8:56; 58; Heb 7:1; 2; 3-4; 7-8; 15-16; 17; 22; 24-25; 26; 8:1; 10;11-12)  Abram gave a tenth of the captured treasure to Melchizedek and did not covet the wealth of the people that had been freed. 
(Ge 14:21; 22; 23; 24)

The LAND COVENANT and FUTURE KINGDOM



Ge15:1; 2-3; After these events, Logos spoke to Abram in a vision, Logos assured Abram, " Do not fear "," I am a shield, your reward is very great." Abrams faithfully obeyed the Spirit of Logos and grew in his knowledge of righteousness as he reflected the Eternal’s Way of life. 

[Abram has sojourned the land of Canaan for 10 years and at the age of 85 he longs for the promised birth of his heir.] 

Ge 15:4; 5-6; Abram's thoughts were refreshed with the promises of Logos, “a child  coming from your body will be heir and your offspring will be like the stars of heaven.” Abram believed and trusted Logos' promises and Abram's faith was considered righteousness. 
(Ga 3:16; 17; 18; 19; 20-21; 23;   Heb 11:1-2; 8-9; 10-11; 12; 13; 14; 15-16; Isa 2:2; 3; 4; 5; Rev 21:2; 3)


Ge 15:7; Abram obediently journeyed from Ur of the Chaldeans and walked with Logos to the promised land. Logos planted a vision of the future in Abram's mind and the assurance of the things hoped for.

Abram asked Logos, “how may I understand the promised land inheritance.” 
(Acts 7:1-2; 3-4; 5; 6; 7)

Ge 15:8-9; 10-11; 12;  Logos instructed Abram in the way of presenting an acceptable sacrifice that would be symbolically significant and representative of a Covenant bond and agreement between Abram and Logos. 

Ge 15:13-14; 15; 16  Abram faithfully obeyed Logos' command and as it grew dark, Abram was overwhelmed by a deep sleep. Abram experienced a vision of the awesome and terrifying power of Logos and the Eternal' authority to direct the future of mankind by restoring His justice and establishing the government of Eloheyem Yehawah on earth for those who Love the Logos of Truth. The Spirit of Logos moved within Abram's heart. Abram witnessed the wicked lawlessness of sinful mankind and the assurance of Logos' compassionate restorative justice. 

Ge 15:17-18; 19-21; Logos accepted Abram's offering and drew him close in spiritual confidence by creating a Covenant agreement with His friend. In the evening of; that day Logos confirmed the “Land Covenant,” that would form the future territory for the nation of Israel, Abram's descendents. Logos symbolically signed the land covenant by passing between Abrams animal sacrifices with a cooking pot and a torch that represents approval and agreement. 
(Ex 12:40-41; 42; Psa 105:6-7; 8-9; 10-11; 42-43)


[The day Abram offered a sacrifice; is the appointed time for Passover and when evening came, Logos spoke to Abram about the future Exodus of the children of Israel and their departure from Egypt on the evening of the 1st day of Unleavened Bread.] 
(Ge 4:3-4; 18:14;  Ex 13:10; 23:15; Nu 9:2-3;             Ps 103:13; Ga 3:17; 18; 19-20; 21; 22; Heb 8:6;       7; 8; 9; 10; 11; 12-13; 9:15; 20-21; 27-28;    10:16-17; 12:22; 23; 24; 25; 13:20; 21 ;                  Lk 22:20; Isa 49:6; 7; 8; 9; 56:6; 7; 59:21; 61:7; 8; 9; Jer 31:32; 33; 32:40; 41; Ro 9:4;       5; 11:26; 27)


ONE MiSTAKE and a LONGER WAIT...


Ge16:1; 2; 3-4; 5; 6; 7-8; 9; Abram's wife Sarai is 75 years old and childless. Sarai felt that the Eternal had prevented her from conceding. Sarai offered her maidservant Hagar to Abram as a surrogate wife. Abram accepted Hagar as his wife and loved her and they conceived a son. Abram may have thought that this was the only way for him to receive the promised heir from Logos. This mistake brought sorrow and division between Sarai and Abram and suffering to Hagar and disillusionment to her son Ishmael. 
(Ge 16:10-11; 12; 13; 14-15)


The COVENANT SIGN of CIRCUMCISION


Ge 17:1-2; 3-4; For 13 years Abram tried to raise his son Ishmael. Abram's love for Sarai prevented him from showing affection to Hagar. Ishmael may have resented the humiliation of his mother and doubted Abram's love for him.  Now, Abram is 99 years old and at the appointed time of Passover the Eternal Logos reaffirms His Covenant promise for Abram's future seed. 
(Ge 3:14; 15; 6:9; Deut 18:13; Ga 3:16; Col 2:9-10; 11-12; 13; Ps 1:1-2; 2:1-2; 34:6-8; 40:4-8; 94:12-13; 14-15; 16; Pr 3:1-2; 3-4; 5-6; 7-8; 9; 11-12; 13; 18; 4:23) Logos reminded Abram to live a blameless life and continue to walk obediently with the Eternal. 
(Ge 17:5-6; 7-8; Neh 9:7; Ro 4:16; 17; 18; 19; 20-21; 22) Logos changed Abram's name to Abraham (Father of Nations). Logos instructed Abraham to guard and preserve this covenant relationship with Eloheyem Yehawah  and teach the next generation the way to the Eternal inheritance. 
(Ex 19:5; Ps 105:9-10; Lk 1:55; Ge 26:24; Lev 11:45; 26:12; 45; Deut 29:13; Heb 11:16; Rev 21:7)

Ge 17:10-11; 12; 13; 14; Logos required that Abraham and his descendants must be circumcised in the flesh to maintain a sign for the remembrance of their covenant relationship with Eloheyem Yehawah. 
(Ex 12:48; Deut 10:16; Acts 7:8; Ro 4:11)

Ge 17:16-17;  Logos also remembered Sarai and changed her name to Sarah because she would give birth to Abraham's promised son.   joy filled Abraham's heart and he laughed at the thought of being a father at 100 years old and Sarah giving birth at 90. 
(Heb 11:11-12)


  Ge 17:18; Ge 17:19NASB; Abraham asked Logos, “may Ishmael remain in this covenant?” Logos said, “no, but Ishmael will become the father of 12 princes and a great nation. 
(Ge 17:20NASB; 21-22; Ga 4:21-22; 23; 24; 25-26; 27; 28-29; 30-31) Logos would fulfill his promise to Abraham and Sarah and they would have a son named Isaac (which means laughter). Logos promised to continue His covenant relationship with Isaac and his descendants forever. Logos revealed that Sarah would give birth to Isaac at the appointed time next year. 
(Ge 17:21-22)

Ge 17:23–24; 25-26; 27; On that "Passover Evening", Abraham, Ishmael and all the men were circumcised and dedicated their lives to Eloheyem Yehawah the Logos who spoke to Abraham. 
(Ex 4:25; Lev 12:3; Deut 10:16;Jer 4:2; 3; 4; ; Jn 15:1-2; 3-4; 5-6; 7-8; 9-10; 11-12; 13-14; 15; 16-17; Ro 11:16; 17; 18-19; 20-21; 22; 23; 24; Acts 7:8) 


{logosres:dblhebr;ref=HebrewGK.HGK4909  (lǎlcircumcise, means to, cut off,[ to be removed from a way of life and then Dedicated to another Way of Life ]to dedicate your life to Eloheyem Yehawah the Eternal.}

A DAY to REMEMBER
Ge 18:1-2; 3-4; 5; 6-7; 8-9; The next day while Abraham was resting under a tree he noticed Melchizedek Logos and 2 Angels walking towards him. Abraham greeted and invited them to rest and partake of some food. Melchizedek agreed, so Abraham went into his tent and asked Sarah to bake 3 cakes of unleavened bread. Abraham served the bread with milk , curds and roasted meat to their guests. (Ge 18:10; 12) Melchizedek asked, “where's Sarah your wife.  I will return next year at this appointed time (Ro 9:9)  to see Sarah's newborn son.” Sarah was listening and thought how she had missed the joy of cherishing a child and laughter entered her heart. Melchizedek asked, “why did Sarah laugh, is anything too difficult for Eloheyem to accomplish.”
(Ge 18:13-14; 15; Jer 32:17; 27; Matt  19:26; Lk 1:37; Ro 4:21)
ABRAHAM and RIGHT  JUDGEMENT
Ge 18:16-17; 18;  Melchizedek Logos and the 2 angels prepared to leave. Logos considered the importance of Abraham's participation in the Eternal's righteous judgment against wickedness. Logos valued Abrahams righteous character and heartfelt observations. The covenant relationship depended upon Abraham's faithful dedication to teach his children the right and just way to live a life pleasing to the Eternal by keeping the Commandments and instructions of Logos. 
(Ge 18:19; Deut 5:1; 6-7; 8; 9; 10-11; 12-13; 14; 15; 16; 17-19; 20-21; 29; 31-32; 33; 6:1-2; 3-4; 5-6; 7; 10; 13-14; 15; 17-18; 19; 24-25 )

Ge 18:20-21; 22; Melchizedek Logos judges the heart, mind, and behaviors of mankind. Logos is spiritually aware of the sins committed by the people of Sodom and Gomorrah. Logos informs Abraham that He is about to bring judgment upon the wicked. 
(Psa 7:9; Jer 11:20; 17:10; 20:12-13; Eze 16:49-50)

Ge 18:23-24; 25; 26; 27; 28; 29;30; 31; 32-33; Abraham feared that living in Sodom may have corrupted his nephew Lot, his wife and daughters. Abraham asked Logos, “will you show mercy if there is only 10 righteous people in the city?” Logos agreed with Abraham's compassionate request.

Ge 19:1; 2; 3-4; 5-6; 7-8; 9; 10-11; 12; 13; 14; 15; 16; 17-18; 19-20; 21-22; 23-24; 25-26; 27-28; The 2 angels entered Sodom that evening. Abrahams nephew Lot greeted the angelic strangers and welcomed them into his home. The angels protected Lot and his family while the wicked people of Sodom surrounded their house. The 2 Angels warned Lot about the imminent destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah. Only Lot and his 2 daughters would escape the fiery judgment by fleeing to the hills near the insignificant city of Zoar.
(Lk 17:28-29; 2 Pe 2:6-7; 8-9; 10; Ge 19:29)


JOURNEYING : for a HOME


Ge 20:1; 7; 11; Abraham and Sarah journeyed with their accompaniment to the Negev south of Jerusalem near Kadesh and Shur and sojourned in the land of King Abimelech. Abimelech and the people of Gerar learned that Abraham was a prophet and they began to fear the EternalLogos.  


The BIRTH of ISAAC and LAUGHTER


Ge 21:1-2; 3-4; 5-6; 7-8;  Logos remembered His promise to Abraham that Sarah would conceive a son. One year later at the appointed “Passover”, Sarah gave birth to Isaac. Eight days later Isaac was circumcised and dedicated to the Covenant relationship with Eloheyem Yehawah the Eternal. 
(Heb 6:13-14; 15-16; 17)


A FAMILY DIVIDED and NATIONS in CONFLICT


Ge 21:9; At the age of 16, Ishmael began to abuse 1-year-old Isaac. 
(Ga 4:22-23; 29; 30-31; Ge 16:11; 12)

Abraham was sad when Sarah wanted Hagar and Ishmael to leave. 
(Ge 21:10-11) 

Logos reminded Abraham that the Covenant promise would be given to Isaac and his descendants. But Ishmael would become a separate family nation. 
(Ge 21:12-13) 


A DISTANT RELATIVE and ONLY MILES APART : ISHMAEL


Ge 21:14; 15-16; 17-18; 19; 20-21; Hagar and Ishmael departed with only the water and food that Abraham had provided. They traveled to the southern border of the land of Canaan and the northern region of the Sinai desert. When they had consumed the food and water a moment of despair overwhelmed Hagar and she cried out to the Eternal who hears. Logos answered Hagar and reassured her that they would live and Ishmael would become the father of a great nation. Logos guided them to an oasis of waters. They lived in the wilderness of Paran Beersheba. Ishmael became a hunter and married an Egyptian maiden. 
(Ge 25:12; 13-15; 16-17; 18)


   WATER, PEACE, and a TREE of LIFE


Ge 21:22; 23-24; 25-27; 28-30; 31-32; 33-34; Abraham's faith grew as he walked in spiritual closeness to Logos the Eternal. The people of the Philistines and Abimelech the King of Gerar live peacefully near Abraham. Abraham offered 7 lambs to settle a dispute concerning his possession of a well. Abraham planted trees near the spring of Beersheba and he lived only a short distance from Ishmael.

LOVE is an OFFERING




Ge 22:1-2; Joy and laughter filled the lives of Abraham and Sarah as they cherished Isaac the, “child of promise.” Every year grew with wonderful experiences that bonded Isaac to his loving parents. Sarah's beauty of heart embraced her son like a garment of life. Abraham spoke the words of Logos as he carefully wrote upon the pages of Isaac's mind the Eternal story of Truth. Day by day Abraham and Isaac grew in unity of heart and mind. Year after year; Isaac witnessed his father worship the Eternal is Yehawah Eloheyem and assisted Abraham in presenting an animal sacrifice at the appointed time of remembrance, “when Logos sacrificed animals to cover the nakedness of Adam and Eve, when they had sinned.” Logos promised that a future seed of a woman would defeat the evil influences of Satan and restore the government of the Eternal and His Sabbath rest to all mankind. As the appointed time of Passover drew near, Abraham considered logos' words, “a son of yours will produce descendants like the multitude of starry host.” 
(Ge 15:5-6;  17:21; 18:14;21:2-3; 4; 21:12) 


OBEDIENCE is a SACRIFICE



Ge 22:1-2 Logos' voice gently whispered as if entangled within Abraham's thoughts, “Abraham.” Only a breath away, “here I am,” said Abraham. Then the unexpected tore the veil from conscious thought and pierced Abraham's heart. Logos said, “take your son, your one and only mirror image, the son whom you love.” And, “offer him as a burnt sacrifice on Mount Mariah the chosen place.” (2 Chr 3:1)

Ge 22:3; 4; 5; 6; 7; 8; Abraham must have thought, “Logos promised, my son?” The early morning mist covered the earth like the secret tears of Abraham's sleepless night. Abraham awoke Isaac and prepared for the three-day journey to the appointed sacrifice. Isaac, and inquisitive but trusting teenager, asked his father, “we have wood and fire, where's the lamb for sacrifice?” Abraham answered, “the Eternal will provide.”

Ge 22:9-10; Upon reaching Mariah, Abraham built an altar and Isaac set the wood bundle in place. For a moment Abraham held Isaac in an embrace that seemed like eternity. Abraham bound his son as he felt chords tightening around his own heart. Isaac's eyes widened with the question, “father why?” But no words were spoken. Abraham lifted Isaacs trembling body and placed him upon the altar like a trusting lamb. In a moment the knife in Abraham's hand would pour out the blood of his beloved son.

Ge 22:11-12;“Abraham, Abraham” cried an angel. “Here I am," recoiled Abraham.

TESTING the HEART



The Angel's command parted the dark clouds of despair and the trembling creation seem to spring forth new birth. “Abraham,” the angel said, “do not harm your only beloved son, now the Eternal Logos knows that you fear him and carefully obey his word.”

Ge 22:13; 14; Abraham saw a goat trapped in a thicket and he offered the goat as a sacrifice instead of his son Isaac. Abraham named that place, “the Eternal will provide.” And on this mountain, the Eternal Logos makes his salvation visible.

Ge 22:15-16; The Angel declared to Abraham, “you have willingly offered your son to the Eternal and the word of Logos will be faithful to you. The Covenant promises Logos made to Abraham will come true.
