"Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen." - Hebrews 11 V1

"By faith Abraham, when he was tested, offered up Isaac, and he who had received the promises offered up his only begotten son" - Hebrews 11 V17

When God tested Abraham, he (Abraham) freely offered his son Isaac and he proved his faithfulness even in the midst of the great trial. However, God did not allow Abraham to sacrifice his son, but hundreds of years later, on the same mountain, God sacrificed His only Son Jesus Christ for the sake of you and me. God showed His faithfulness and He let His Son die on the cross for the sins of mankind. By faith are we called to receive the free gift of salvation by believing on the name of Jesus our Lord. Praise the Lord!

"And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work." - Jesus Christ

Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus!
