Character determines how a man will interpret God's Will.
~Mr. Chambers, this morning
Take now thy son . . and offer him there for a burnt-offering upon one of the mountains which I will tell thee of.
Abraham could only leave this tradition behind by the pain of a tremendous ordeal.
God could purify his faith in no other way.
God will break us from those traditions that misrepresent Him.
There are many such beliefs to be got rid of, e.g., that God removes a child because the mother loves him too much – a devil’s lie! and a travesty of the true nature of God.
If the devil can hinder us from taking the supreme climb and getting rid of wrong traditions about God, he will do so
but if we keep true to God, God will take us through an ordeal which will bring us out into a better knowledge of Himself.
To the faithful you show yourself faithful,
to the blameless you show yourself blameless,
to the pure you show yourself pure,
but to the crooked you show yourself shrewd.
~Psalm 18: 25 - 26
