The Abrahamic Covenant, Part 7. The silence of Sarah supporting her man.
Thursday, April 18, 2002
One of the greatest tests ever given - two men are involved concerning their relationship to the Lord and the women just hang around for the blessing.
The silence of Sarah illustrates her tremendous poise and trust in her husband as well as in TLJC.
GAL 6:5 For each one shall bear his own load.
They become ugly in their souls and then live in the curse of GEN 3:16, trying to usurp authority over the man.
When it comes to any great issue the man must decide.
The best thing you can do is be there when he gets back and not try to head him off from the pass.
Sarah is as noble as Abraham in her very own way by not even being mentioned in this passage.
The very absence of her name is indicative of the fact that she passed the test on her part.
In Abrahams most difficult hour she was not a burden to him.
When a man is called by the Lord to do something, he is going to have enough obstacles to deal with as it is; he doesnt need extra burdens from the woman.
When Abraham was first called by God he was told where to go but what to do was not brought into focus then!
This time what to do is very clear, where to go is obscure and will be brought into focus as he closes in on the target.
The lucid part of the command = kill your son in the land of Moriah on top of a mountain and burn his body.
You can rationalize and say, “Well, perhaps the Lord doesnt really want me to do this because Im clear on one aspect but not the other.”
The Lord deliberately makes some things obscure to test your attitude toward divine essence.
PSA 97:2 Righteousness and justice are the foundation of His throne.
PSA 119:137 Righteous art Thou, O Lord, And upright are Thy judgments.
