Genesis 22 Observations
Genesis 22:14 YAHUAH is Provider.
Genesis 22:5 Abraham equated worship with sacrifice.
Genesis 22:9 Abraham had an appointment with YAH. “And they came to the place which Elohim had told him of; and Abraham built an altar there.”
Abba told Abraham how and where to worship Him. He has also told us how and where to worship Him. We can find these instructions in His righteous Torah, His Law. He has told us what He wants and what He doesn’t want. He is not obligated to accept anything from us that He has not sanctioned or approved of.
YAHUSHA, when He came, followed YAH’s instructions to the jot and the tittle (Matt. 5:17-19). Are we better, more privileged in the eyes of YAHUAH than the Word Made flesh?
This time of the year, many will offer Xmas to YAHUAH, stating that they are offering remembrances and honoring the birth of our Elohim when He clothed Himself in flesh and dwelt among finite man (Jn. 1).
Yet, YAHUAH, clearly said in His Word that He does not want this holiday and all its pagan paraphenella to be associated with Him, much less attributed to Him in any way, shape, form or fashion.
If we are truly grafted into Israel through the blood of YAHUSHA the Messiah, then we are adopted into the seed of Abraham. We are Israel. So, then, if Abraham, the first Hebrew worshipped Abba according to Abba’s instructions, should we not also?
Can we truly say that we are YAHUAH’s children when we practice pagan idolatry while ignoring, neglecting and negating His clear instructions to worship Him in His appointed times that He has given to us? (Lev. 23).
I invite you to comment below with additional observations from your reading.
Please, please comment below if you see ANYTHING that is contrary to Scripture that I have presented in these Scripture Observations. I want Truth and when I see that I have made a mistake, I want to correct that. No chips on my shoulders here.
I also ask one thing, though. Please, please present your thoughts in the context of two or three Scripture references, not just one (see Deuteronomy 17:6; Matthew 18:16; 2 Corinthians 13:1). One verse (especially one verse out of context) will not be received as evidence. I am just not one to interpret Scripture or accept other’s interpretation of Scripture apart from the written Word of YAH found in the whole counsel of His written Word.
I try my best to limit the use of the precursor words of “I think” or “I believe” without Scripture to back up my “I thinks” and “I believes.” Not only on this site, but be on the lookout anywhere else for excessive “I think” and “I believe” statements presented as Truth, with no Scriptural evidence to back up the statements.
The written Word of YAHUAH is the standard, the vanguard against deception which as you know is quite rampant these days.
