SEEKING MY FAR OFF HOME
 
THE ABRAHAM STORY  pt 1

                                DID ABRAM BELIEVE?  REALLY??
While Abram was still in idol worshipping country, Yahweh called him out, and told him to leave his country and his relatives.  Yahweh said, "you start travelling and I will show you where your destination is to be."  How's that for adventure?!  Anyone want to sign up with that travel agent!?!?  Evidently Abram believed Yahweh was totally trustworthy because he obeyed and went out not knowing where he was going.  (Heb 11:8)  He probably prayed more than once 'Show me your path Yahweh'!! 

When he came to the land of Canaan Yahweh said "walk around in the land (all up and down, and all the way across) its length and its width."
(Gen 13:17)  THIS is the land I will give to your descendants.  (Gen 13:15)  So Abram traveled all around in the promised land, setting up his temporary tent, considering it a foreign country.  He received no inheritance in it. (Acts 7:5) 

Why did he consider it a foreign country?  Didn't he believe what Yahweh told him?  If believing is to be so convinced that you live differently, then Abram certainly believed.  In fact he believed so firmly, that he was considered righteous.  And evidently Yahweh was so pleased with the obedience of his faith, because His testimony of Abram was "he is my friend."  (Jam 2:23 & II Chron 20:7) 

Evidently Abram, Isaac, and Jacob were ALL wise enough to see beyond this earthly life, and SEEK a better country, NOT the one they came from.  They all lived in temporary dwellings (tents) declaring they were strangers here and LOOKING FOR a City with foundations, whose builder and maker is Yahweh/God. (Heb 11:8-10)  [By the way -- tents have no permanent foundation do they?!?!?]  They were so convinced that God had prepared a better country for them.  And since they believed, and DESIRED a heavenly country, the Bible says, Yahweh is not ashamed to be called their God; for He has prepared for them a city. (Heb 11:13-16)  By the obedience of their faith they pleased Yahweh (Heb 11:6) 

Then about 2000 years later when Yahshua humbled Himself, became a man and lived among us, what did He say?   "I am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob"!!  (Mat 22:32)  Sounds like He was pleased to be called their God!!   And still to this day, after another 2000 years, how do we know Yahweh our God?   As the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.  This is what Yahweh said, "But you, Israel, are my servant, Jacob, whom I have chosen, the seed of ABRAHAM MY FRIEND. 
(Isaiah 41:8)

Now what about you and me?  Are we going to believe so firmly that Yahweh is totally trustworthy, and prove it by our obedience?  What will Yahweh's testimony be of me?  Would He want to be called my God?  II Chronicles 16:9 tells us that the eyes of Yahweh run to and fro through the whole earth, to show Himself strong in support of those whose heart is perfect toward, whose heart is completely His.

Wouldn't it be exciting to go on a journey of faith with an all-powerful, all-wise, Friend who created you and loves you with such pure live, so that you could totally trust Him, and return to Him joyful obedience?  Oh what a witness you could be to everyone around you, of His salvation, His love, His instructions for this life, and the promise of eternal Life in Heaven.   Well, I say, let's all sign up with that travel agent!!!  Make ME to go in the path of Your COMMANDMENTS f
or therein do I DELIGHT (Psa 119:35)

HERE IS YAHWEH'S TESTIMONY OF.....
ABEL -- offered to God a sacrifice, and obtained the testimony that he was righteous, God testifying of his gift.  Hebrews 11:4         
JOB -- my servant Job, a perfect and an upright man, one that feareth God, and avoids evil.  Job 1:8          
MOSES -- My servant Moses...is faithful in all My house.  Numbers 12:7 and Hebrews 3:2
DAVID -- ...He gave testimony, and said, I have found David, a man after My own heart, who will fulfill all my will.
Acts 15:8  And Yahweh/God, who knows the heart, bore witness to them,  giving them the Holy Spirit, just as He also did to us.

If Yahweh, who knows MY heart, was on the witness stand, what would His testimony be of ME?

HERE IS WHAT ELSE YAHWEH SAID ABOUT ABRAHAM....
Gen 18:19  "For I (Yahweh) know him, (Abraham) that he will command his children and his household after him, and they shall keep the way of Yahweh, to do justice and judgment, that Yahweh may bring upon Abraham what he has spoken".
Gen 22:15-18  "Yahweh says because you have not withheld your only son, I will bless you and multiply you.  And in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; BECAUSE YOU HAVE OBEYED MY VOICE."

ABRAHAM TOOK THE TIME AND EFFORT TO MAINTAIN AN INTIMATE RELATIONSHIP WITH YAHWEH

If Yahweh, who knows MY heart, was on the witness stand, what would His testimony be of ME?

     "Here WE have no permanent city, but WE SEEK one to come." Heb 13:14  One thing I HAVE DESIRED of Yahweh, that will I SEEK after; that I may dwell in the house of Yahweh all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of Yahweh, and to inquire in His temple"  Psa 27:4

IT IS IN HEAVEN, THE CITY WITH FOUNDATIONS THAT WE HAVE A BETTER AND AN ENDURING SUBSTANCE, (HEB 10:34)
  
   NEXT TIME ----- ABRAM LAUGHED! CAN YOU BELIEVE IT?!

HEAVEN

1. Heaven is different from earth

Jesus said, "Lay up for yourself treasures in Heaven, where thieves do not break through nor steal. For where your treasure is there will your heart be also. Mat 6:20-21

2. This Heavenly City is the future abode of saints

Jesus said,
"In My Father’s house, are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there you may be also. John14:2-3

3. Heaven, the Holy City of God, is the location of God’s throne.

IN THE CENTER of Paradise, the City of God, there is a majestic edifice of awe-inspiring dimensions, called the Most Holy Place, or Temple of Heaven. Inside this beautiful structure is the very Throne of God, characterized by a glorious rainbow.
 
(Ezekiel 1:26-28 ...upon the likeness of the throne was the likeness as the appearance of a man above upon it. And I saw as the color of amber, as the appearance of fire round about .....it had brightness round about...as the appearance of the bow that is in the cloud in the day of rain, so was the appearance of the brightness round about. This was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the LORD...) 

Isaiah had a vision of God’s throne, high and lifted up and His train (a glorious light came down and) filled the temple. (Isaiah 6:1) John saw souls under the altar that is before (in front of) the throne of God (Rev 8:3)
"The throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it....Rev 22:3
 


When Paul was on the Damascus road (Acts 26:13) he saw a light from Heaven above the brightness of the noonday sun. A Voice from this light said, "I Am Jesus."    In Rev 21:23, we find that the glory of God is the light of Heaven. This means that the city of Heaven is brighter than the sun. It is another visible manifestation of God’s great glory. (Mat 17:2)

4. The Kingdom of Heaven is the place where saints will meet.


"The Lord...will preserve me unto His heavenly kingdom" (II Tim 4:18)
Jesus said,
"...many will come from the east and west and sit down with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, in the kingdom of Heaven." (Mat 8:11)
Jesus also said "Blessed are they who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake; for theirs is the kingdom of Heaven...rejoice and be exceeding glad (persecuted ones) for great is your reward in Heaven." (Mat 5:10 & 12)
Jesus referred to Heaven and the kingdom of Heaven as the same place--the place of eternal glory and reward for those who have entered the spiritual kingdom of God while living on earth.

                           


This vision of Jesus was photographed by Prince Adolph Frederick Wilhelm Van Hapsburg, the 15-year old grandson of the late Emperor of Austria.  It was taken June 1, 1960 as Yahweh appeared to all in the hall of Chichen Itza in the Yucatan Mission of Mexico.



SO WHAT IS HEAVEN?
It is the City of Yahweh’s throne. It is the dwelling place of the Father and Son, the angels, the archangels, the cherubim, the seraphim, the departed saints, and the 24 elders. It is a spiritual yet literal place--very large, very bright, very beautiful and very exciting.
