Isaac’s Altar Call

Isaac’s Altar Call. On this episode, Abraham’s faith and obedience are tested again with a heart-wrenching request by God.Episode #7: Isaac’s Altar Call

 

Last week, we saw how God is faithful in keeping His promises but that God’s timing may be much different than OUR timing. And, we learned that the Lord keeps His word, even when we try to get ahead of Him and “help” Him out a bit. The Lord’s plan will always prevail.

Abraham was 100 years old and Sarah was 90, when Isaac, the promised and long-awaited son, and heir, was born. Can you imagine being that old and becoming parents? No wonder Abraham and Sarah struggled to believe that God would indeed fulfill what He had promised so many years before and when they were both much younger!

On this episode, we are going to see that Abraham’s faith and obedience are tested again with a heart-wrenching request by God. We will also to explore how Isaac’s faith and obedience were also tested, something not often explored with this story in Scripture. You’ll want to stay tuned for the entire episode because today there is a surprise twist at the end!

Next week- We hope you will join us next time when we are introduced to Isaac’s son, Jacob, and how his act of deception in his youth comes back to him in spades later on.
