  1. 1. Isaac 16 KNOWING
  2. 2. - What is the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah teaching us? - Can we abuse the freedom given to us without consequences? - Does God have limits? - What happened with God’s promise to Abraham?
  3. 3. Genesis 21:1-8 Sarah conceived and bore Abraham a son in his old age, at the set time of which God had spoken to him. And Abraham called the name of his son who was born to him—whom Sarah bore to him—Isaac. Then Abraham circumcised his son Isaac when he was eight days old, as God had commanded him. Now Abraham was one hundred years old when his son Isaac was born to him.
  4. 4. Genesis 21:1-8 And Sarah said, “God has made me laugh, and all who hear will laugh with me.” She also said, “Who would have said to Abraham that Sarah would nurse children? For I have borne him a son in his old age.” So the child grew and was weaned. And Abraham made a great feast on the same day that Isaac was weaned.
  5. 5. - Is there anything to difficult for God? - Is He faithful to His promises? - Was Sarah happy? Did Abraham celebrate? - Was Isaac taught in the knowledge of God?
  6. 6. Genesis 22:1-2 Now it came to pass after these things that God tested Abraham, and said to him, “Abraham!” And he said, “Here I am.” Then He said, “Take now your son, your only son Isaac, whom you love, and go to the land of Moriah, and offer him there as a burnt offering on one of the mountains of which I shall tell you.”
  7. 7. - Does God Test us? - Why was God testing Abraham? - Did he know he was being tested? - Does God have the right to test us?
  8. 8. - How would we respond if God ask for our child? - Could a terminal illness strike a loved one? - Do we ever think that one of our children could die? - What did Abraham do? - Did he ignore God?
  9. 9. Genesis 22:3-4 So Abraham rose early in the morning and saddled his donkey, and took two of his young men with him, and Isaac his son; and he split the wood for the burnt offering, and arose and went to the place of which God had told him. Then on the third day Abraham lifted his eyes and saw the place afar off.
  10. 10. - Why did Abraham rise early in the morning? - What was Abraham thinking during the three day journey? - Didn’t God ask Abraham for his ONLY son?
  11. 11. - Was it that Abraham loves his son too much? - What did he believe?
  12. 12. Hebrews 11:17-19 By faith Abraham, when he was tested, offered up Isaac, and he who had received the promises offered up his only begotten son, of whom it was said, “In Isaac your seed shall be called,” concluding that God was able to raise him up, even from the dead, from which he also received him in a figurative sense.
  13. 13. - Did Abraham trust in God’s promise? - Is obedience the result of unwavering faith? - Was Abraham thinking in God’s capacity to fulfill His promises?
  14. 14. - If God had Isaac killed, Whose problem was it then? - Did Abraham follow through the command all the way?
  15. 15. Genesis 22:5 And Abraham said to his young men, “Stay here with the donkey; the lad and I will go yonder and worship, and we will come back to you.”
  16. 16. - Did Abraham lie to his servants? - What language was Abraham talking? - Is he talking faith when he told them ‘we will come back’?
  17. 17. Genesis 22:6-8 So Abraham took the wood of the burnt offering and laid it on Isaac his son; and he took the fire in his hand, and a knife, and the two of them went together. But Isaac spoke to Abraham his father and said, “My father!” And he said, “Here I am, my son.” Then he said, “Look, the fire and the wood, but where is the lamb for a burnt offering?” And Abraham said, “My son, God will provide for Himself the lamb for a burnt offering.” So the two of them went together.
  18. 18. - Why was Isaac carrying the wood? - How old was he? Was he a teenager already? - Did Isaac know what was going to happen? - Did Abraham lie to Isaac?
  19. 19. - For whom is the sacrifice of the lamb? - What is the meaning of God providing for himself? - Did Isaac doubt his father? - Is there trust in their relationship?
  20. 20. Genesis 22:9-10 Then they came to the place of which God had told him. And Abraham built an altar there and placed the wood in order; and he bound Isaac his son and laid him on the altar, upon the wood. And Abraham stretched out his hand and took the knife to slay his son.
  21. 21. - What was Isaac thinking now? - Could Isaac have save himself? - Did he deserve to die?
  22. 22. Genesis 22:11-13 But the Angel of the LORD called to him from heaven and said, “Abraham, Abraham!” So he said, “Here I am.” And He said, “Do not lay your hand on the lad, or do anything to him; for now I know that you fear God, since you have not withheld your son, your only son, from Me.” Then Abraham lifted his eyes and looked, and there behind him was a ram caught in a thicket by its horns. So Abraham went and took the ram, and offered it up for a burnt offering instead of his son.
  23. 23. - Was Abraham determined to kill his son? - Why did God wait until the last instant to stop him? - Who is learning? Abraham or God?
  24. 24. - Who placed the ram in the thicket? - Why was the ram caught by the horns? - Was the ram hurt in any way before the sacrifice? - How must be our sacrifice to God?
  25. 25. Genesis 22:14-19 And Abraham called the name of the place, The- LORD-Will-Provide; as it is said to this day, “In the Mount of the LORD it shall be provided.” Then the Angel of the LORD called to Abraham a second time out of heaven, and said: “By Myself I have sworn, says the LORD, because you have done this thing, and have not withheld your son, your only son—
  26. 26. Genesis 22:14-19 blessing I will bless you, and multiplying I will multiply your descendants as the stars of the heaven and as the sand which is on the seashore; and your descendants shall possess the gate of their enemies. In your seed all the nations of the earth shall be blessed, because you have obeyed My voice.” So Abraham returned to his young men, and they rose and went together to Beersheba; and Abraham dwelt at Beersheba.
  27. 27. - Why did God swear by himself? - Is there anyone bigger than Him?? - Was God reiterating his promise to Abraham? - Did Abraham understand the scope of God’s promise? - Who is the seed that will bless all the nations?
  28. 28. Galatians 3:16 Now to Abraham and his Seed were the promises made. He does not say, “And to seeds,” as of many, but as of one, “And to your Seed,” who is Christ.
  29. 29. - Is the seed of Abraham (and Eve) Jesus? - How big was Abraham’s faith? - Is it important the size of our faith? - Or is it God who supports His word? (promises) - What is the purpose of trials?
  30. 30. 1 Peter 1:3-7 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His abundant mercy has begotten us again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to an inheritance incorruptible and undefiled and that does not fade away, reserved in heaven for you, who are kept by the power of God through faith for salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.
  31. 31. 1 Peter 1:3-7 In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while, if need be, you have been grieved by various trials, that the genuineness of your faith, being much more precious than gold that perishes, though it is tested by fire, may be found to praise, honor, and glory at the revelation of Jesus Christ.
  32. 32. - How does God strengthen our faith? - How is gold purified? With fire? - What is faith? Is it to believe God? - Is it necessary to test our faith? - Does anyone like the trial of their faith?
  33. 33. James 1:2-3 My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience.
  34. 34. - What does the testing of our faith produce? - What should be our attitude in the face of trials? - How do we get this kind of joy? - Can we produce it ourselves?
  35. 35. Galatians 5:22-23 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law.
  36. 36. - Whose fruit is joy? Ours or the Spirit? - How many fruits do we get from the Spirit? - Can we control the Spirit of God? - How can we explain peace in the face of trials?
  37. 37. Philippians 4:7 and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
  38. 38. - Is peace another fruit of the Spirit? - Do we need faith to obtain God’s promises? - Can we overcome without the help of the Spirit?
  39. 39. WHAT DID WE LEARN TODAY? - God tries our faith and He strengthen it through our trials. - Our obedience to God is related to our faith in Him. - The sacrifice that we offer God has to be perfect. - We should desire the fruit of the Spirit in our lives. - Without the help of God and His spirit it is impossible to get the victory.
