“A Type”

Blessings folk!

By faith!

It is by faith that we live.

We continue through Hebrews.

Read the next passage.

Note what happened to whom?
Note what he rest in.

Heb 11:17-19

By faith Abraham, when he was tested, offered up Isaac,
and he who had received the promises was offering up his only begotten son;

it was he to whom it was said, “IN ISAAC YOUR DESCENDANTS SHALL BE CALLED.”

He considered that God is able to raise people even from the dead,
from which he also received him back as a type.

Abraham had received the promised son from God - Isaac.
But now, a test.
A test beyond any we can comprehend.
We will examine the account later…for now…a test…related to offering up Isaac.

Isaac would be the one through whom the promise of descendants would come.
But now?

God was requiring Isaac as a sacrifice.

Abraham’s response?
If God required it, it will be done.
If God took Isaac, then He could raise him from the dead to fulfill the promise.

A type.
A picture of the Lord Jesus.

Rejoice in the life that we have been given.
