The Faith of Abraham: Part 1 The Bigger Question

“For this reason it depends on trust, so that the promise according to grace might be guaranteed to all the offspring—not only to those of the Torah but also to those of the faith of Abraham. He is the father of us all” Letter to the Romans Chapter 4 Verse 16

What if most of our debates were caused by asking questions that are too small, and finding answers that are the same?

What if the bigger picture answered the lesser debates?

So if the Sabbath and the Biblical Feasts (both in Genesis at Creation Week before Adam was crafted) and the Biblical Diet (given before Noah in Genesis) were ALL given before Abraham, would these then be for ALL Mankind?

Since they were given thousands of years before Abraham, the grandfather of Judah the first Jew, was ever even born. Abraham was also of course born nearly 500 years before Moses stood on Sinai in Exodus.

Even if not everyone agrees on Sinai, we should all be able to agree that what was given to all of mankind THEN should apply to all of mankind NOW.

Even more so if they will apply to ALL of mankind FUTURE when the Messiah returns (Zechariah 14, Isaiah 56 and 58, Isaiah 66) in the future Kingdom described in Revelation.

Much of the arguments we see on Facebook between believers concern the place of Moses and the Levitical Priesthood in regards to Christians and Jews, but not the place of The Creator and Melchizedek Priesthood for all Mankind.

Also a misuse and mistranslation of the term “Torah” into “Law”, when it was really ALL of the Instructions given to ALL of Mankind from Genesis to Revelation. “Every Word” that proceeds from the mouth of God, instead of just the Words given through Moses, as that is actually a separate word in Hebrew.

What if the Bible is entirely consistent after all when we look at Abraham instead of just to Moses or just to Paul?

Abraham had Faith in the Coming Messiah (Yeshua-Jesus) and Fellowshipped with Him at an early Passover Meal. Abraham also had Dreams and Visions led by the Spirit. Abraham was also living by a set of Instructions He had received previous to the Lawgiver Moses and the Prophets and to the Apostle Paul.

It truly is the “Faith of Abraham” that we must have, instead of the “Faith of -insert denominational/religious founder here-“

And Yeshua -Jesus (among other reasons such as paying our penalty ) came to show Humanity HOW to live it out, as The Creator intended.

Then He gave us His Spirit to lead us in the HOW in our individual lives.

The Written form being to keep us from going off the rails with the wrong Spirits.

Genesis will repeat in Revelation, the Kingdom of the 2nd Adam having the same instructions as the Kingdom of the 1st Adam. Selah and Shalom To Your Hearts.

What If The Truth And The Master Plan

Have Always Been Far Bigger Than Your Religion And Your Tradition???

God of salvation
You chased down my heart
Through all of my failure and pride

You’re the One who never leaves the one behind

“So Will I” Hillsong Worship

God of creation
There at the start
Before the beginning of time

With no point of reference
You spoke to the dark
And fleshed out the wonder of light

And as You speak
A hundred billion galaxies are born
In the vapour of Your breath the planets form
If the stars were made to worship, so will I
I can see Your heart in everything You’ve made
Every burning star
A signal fire of grace
If creation sings Your praises, so will I

God of Your promise
You don’t speak in vain
No syllable empty or void

For once You have spoken
All nature and science
Follow the sound of Your voice

And as You speak
A hundred billion creatures catch Your breath
Evolving in pursuit of what You said
If it all reveals Your nature so will I
I can see Your heart in everything You say

Every painted sky
A canvas of Your grace
If creation still obeys You, so will I

So will I
So will I

If the stars were made to worship, so will I
If the mountains bow in reverence, so will I
If the oceans roar Your greatness, so will I
For if everything exists to lift You high, so will I
If the wind goes where You send it, so will I
If the rocks cry out in silence, so will I
If the sum of all our praises still falls shy
Then we’ll sing again a hundred billion times

God of salvation
You chased down my heart
Through all of my failure and pride

On a hill You created
The Light of the world
Abandoned in darkness to die

And as You speak
A hundred billion failures disappear
Where You lost Your life so I could find it here
If You left the grave behind You, so will I
I can see Your heart in everything You’ve done
Every part designed in a work of art called love
If You gladly chose surrender, so will I
I can see Your heart, a billion different ways
Every precious one, a child You died to save
And if You gave Your life to love them so will I

Like You would again a hundred billion times
But what measure could amount to Your desire?
You’re the One who never leaves the one behind
