Book Chapter 17

Satan has convinced Christendom groups that its sufficient to “believe God is” opposed to “believing IN God.” To believe IN God is to know His every command and oracle is for our good and know He’s exactly who and what He’s manifested to be. He manifest Himself as, “Re-Creator, Creator, Sustainer, Mediator, God of love and justice.”  (He’s the very same Re-Creator, Creator, Sustainer and Deliverer “Lord God Jesus” who set aside the seventh day for reflection and rest, “commanding His created people do the same.” From the beginning He designated a time to offer sacrificial worship of Himself. At Genesis 4:3-4, we find Cain and Abel sacrificially worshiping. “Abel obediently offering the fattest of the firstborn from his flock, while Cain offered what seemed right to himself, “fruit of the ground.” The Lord God Jesus was pleased with Abel’s offering but wasn’t pleased with Cain’s. Cain yielded to the demonic thinking of doing what seemed right to his fleshly nature, “became jealous of Abel and killed him.” If we aren’t sure about whether Abel’s sacrifice was of choice clean animals, “it’s made clear when God was having Noah save the clean and unclean.”  (See Heb 13:8)

(Gen 7:1-4; The Lord said to Noah, “Come into the ark, you and all your household, for I consider you godly among this generation. You must take with you seven of every kind of clean animal, the male and its mate, two of every kind of unclean animal, the male and its mate and also seven of every kind of bird in the sky, male and female, to preserve their offspring on the face of the earth.)

After water receded  (Gen 8:18-21; Noah went out along with his sons, his wife, and his sons’ wives. Every living creature, every creeping thing, every bird, and everything that moves on the earth went out of the ark in their groups. (20) Noah built an altar to the Lord. He then took some of every kind of clean animal and clean bird and offered burnt offerings on the altar. And the Lord smelled the soothing aroma and said to Himself, “I will never again curse the ground because of humankind, even though the inclination of their minds is evil from childhood on. I will never again destroy everything that lives, as I have just done.”)

Noah’s building an Ark for the saving of family, clean - unclean animals - fowl etc. was an act of obedience as is setting aside the seventh day for reflection and rest. Eating and sacrificing clean animals and keeping God’s set aside Sabbaths, “acknowledges we’re God’s sanctified people” God found Noah to be righteous among his generations and set him aside for His purpose. We find the same loving obedience in Abraham and his descendents, “particularly his spiritual descendents to this day.” (Obedience out of Godly gifted loving respect, “not from a doing or keeping law for gain.”)

Satan doesn’t want people believing IN God’s awesomeness in preplanning. “Believing IN is absolute knowing” where “believing that God is” allows for condoning.” It’s hard for we Believers IN to refer to people attempting to be equal with Jesus’ apostles as believers; “they’re only “believers that.” (Because they put smatterings of Baal, Goddess Dianna, Judaism, various pagan mixtures and planet worship together and “called it Christ like.” An abomination to God the Father and God the Son.

These counterfeiters thought to change customs, times and incorporate the very ways of people groups whose lands God took because of their sins and gave to Israel. They persecuted disagreeing factions and caused friction between Israelites and non-Israelites. They caused Believing IN Jesus people to flee for their safety. Out of this apostasy grew the so called Holy Roman Empire that flourished for more than one thousand years and is still a world wide ideology as are all major denominations.

God’s calling faithful Abraham made His predestining more apparent.

Choosing a people who’d Believe IN Him and obey out of loving respect.

The whole world had long before turned pagan as God led Abraham “to live in but separate from the world at large.” Though more upright than most families, Abraham and Sarah’s extended families were using idols for worship. That truth is brought forward when Jacob’s wife “Rachel” stole her father “Leban’s figurine gods.” God’s timing was then and is now in motion for when He’d come as “the Lamb of God to bring salvation” and when “He’d come again as king of kings to rule with His chosen.” (Remember Jesus manifesting Himself in radiant white and speaking to Moses and Elijah in the presence of three of His apostles? It‘s worth review and meditation.) Until these pre-planned events come to pass, “much was to be demonstrated and God’s people’s history established for our “we latter day Believers IN’S learning.” Jesus gave His apostle Paul the following overview for our consideration.

(Romans 15:1-6; “But we “Christians” who are strong ought to bear with the failings of the weak, and not just please ourselves. Let each of us please his neighbor for his good to build him up. For even Christ did not please Himself, but just as it is written, “The insults of those who insult You have fallen on Me.” (4) For everything that was written in former times was written for our instruction, so that through endurance and through encouragement of the scriptures we may have hope. Now may the God of Endurance and Comfort give you unity with one another in accordance with Christ Jesus, so that together you may with one voice glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.”)

The Lord God Jesus told Abraham about his future descendents being enslaved to a foreign people for four hundred years, “then He’s deliver them and give them rich flowing lands; “taking from a people whose sins hadn’t reached punishment stage.” (My words.)

(Gen 15:12-21; “When the sun went down, Abram fell sound asleep, and great terror overwhelmed him. Then the Lord said to Abram, “Know for certain that your descendants will be strangers in a foreign country. They will be enslaved and oppressed for four hundred years. But I will execute judgment on the nation that they will serve. Afterward they will come out with many possessions. But as for you, you will go to your ancestors in peace and be buried at a good old age. (16) In the fourth generation your descendants will return here, for the sin of the Amorites has not yet reached its limit.”

(17-21; When the sun had gone down and it was dark, a smoking firepot with a flaming torch passed between the animal parts. That day the Lord made a covenant with Abram: “To your descendants I give this land, from the river of Egypt to the great river, the Euphrates River – the land of the Kenites, Kenizzites, Kadmonites, Hittites, Perizzites, Rephaites, Amorites, Canaanites, Girgashites, and Jebusites.”)

God’s predestined descendents of Abraham are yet going to occupy these lands and the world is yet going to look to them for guidance.

Because of people’s transgressions toward God’s Belief IN Way “the way Abraham, Isaac and Jacob yielded to out of loving respect” He added written rules of conduct ‘the Law” for His people’s good. That law serves as a guardian “schoolmaster” to live by “until a gifted atOnement faith in God” would be imputed to Believer’s minds. That believing IN faith wouldn’t abolish nor replace God’s law, “but magnify it making it’s recipients spiritual upright and live as Abraham did. For example Jesus said; “You have heard that it was said, ‘Do not commit adultery.’ But I say to you that whoever looks at a woman to desire her has already committed adultery with her in his heart.”) Matt 5:28)

Jesus’ apostle Paul had the task of explaining that the law was added because of people’s transgressions. Once Jesus’ deity and loving characteristics are revealed to our minds, “we love His law.” Recipients of God’s spirit of truth “His spirit of love” have His loving way ingrained to the mind. Thus no longer under the result of, “penalty of” the law. Which is eternal death.

(Gal 3:22; “But the scripture imprisoned everything and everyone under sin so that the promise could be given – because of the faithfulness of Jesus Christ – to those who believe.”) There’s the difference regarding those who’re gifted to  believe IN and those who aren‘t? Believers IN are made atOne with Jesus, “they desire obedience because of the oneness in love.” People who aren’t gifted with Believing IN faith, remain under the law and it’s penalty. We’ll all be judged by Jesus’ word.

(Gal 3:18; “For if the inheritance is based on the law, it is no longer based on the promise, but God graciously gave it to Abraham through the promise.”) Thus the need to review, “If you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham’s descendants, heirs according to the promise.” Galatians 3:29) Promises to Abraham include immortality, heirs numbering beyond our ability to count and territory with indisputable boundaries.

(Rom 4:13-23; For the promise to Abraham or to his descendants that he would inherit the world was not fulfilled through the law, but through the righteousness that comes by faith. For if they become heirs by the law, faith is empty and the promise is nullified. For the law brings wrath, because where there is no law there is no transgression either. For this reason it is by faith so that it may be by grace, with the result that the promise may be certain to all the descendants – not only to those who are under the law, but also to those who have the faith of Abraham, who is the father of us all. (as it is written, “I have made you the father of many nations.”(See Gen 17:5)

Abraham is our father in the presence of God whom he believed – the God who makes the dead alive and summons the things that do not yet exist as though they already do. Against hope Abraham believed in hope with the result that he became the father of many nations according to the pronouncement, “so will your descendants be.” (19) Without being weak in faith, he considered his own body as dead (because he was about one hundred years old) and the deadness of Sarah’s womb. He did not waver in unbelief about the promise of God but was strengthened in faith, giving glory to God. He was fully convinced that what God promised He was also able to do. So indeed it was credited to Abraham as righteousness. (23) But the statement it was credited to him was not written only for Abraham’s sake, but also for OUR sake, to whom it will be credited, those who BELIEVE IN the One who raised Jesus our Lord from the dead. Jesus was given over because of our transgressions and was raised for the sake of our justification.”)

Paul understood that the promises to Abraham, included himself and each believing IN, “follower of Jesus.”
