One God and One God Only
Abraham's Example of Putting God First
Sermonette; #FT02-05s; 22 minutes
Mike Ford, focusing on the first 19 verses of Genesis 22 (the account of Abraham offering Isaac) emphasizes that God is a jealous god and will not tolerate any other gods. The message further substantiates that (1) God has a plan,(2) God will provide, and (3) Our continues participation in the plan, and receipt of blessings from God hinges on our having only one God. Isaac in this account becomes a type of Christ while Abraham becomes a type of God. Isaac having an implicit faith in his father, willingly submitted himself to be sacrificed. This test proved to God that Abraham had no other gods before God.
