« Abraham ou le ciel étoilé », lavis d’encre de François-Xavier de Boissoudy, 100 x 125cm.

I was glancing through my journal and came across this quote: “God will test you with obedience, He will not test you with evil.” As I’m pondering that and considering all of the excuses we humans come up with not to obey it’s absolutely astounding. I have to hand it to us; we really are great at convincing ourselves that it’s ok, it’s ok this time, —I already committed to something else— the timing just isn’t right— I will next time— but I’m serving this person over here— but that doesn’t make any sense— I tried that before it didn’t work— I have to do this or that— people will think I’m... —I’m not worthy— I don’t have time— I’m not good enough— I’m not gifted there— I’m not a people person — what will people say— 
STOP!! Let’s stop listening to ourselves and start listening to the Lord. That means seeking His will, reading His word, waiting on Him and acting as soon as we are led to do so. It means doing what we are called to do in life, if your a mom, mother, if your a dad father, if your an employee work diligently as unto the Lord. But in all of that let us have ears to hear, let us be tuned in, waiting to hear from Him always. He will not test us with evil, but He will ask for obedience. 
I imagine Abraham had a lot of words he could have told himself. A lot of reasons not to take Isaac and head up to sacrifice him. But he chose obedience and he passed the test. Let us endeavor to truly walk in obedience to our mighty King. Let us choose the hard things when He asks, let us take up our crosses. Our lives are hidden in Him. He is worthy of our very lives. Let us walk as living sacrifices!

“I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.”
‭‭Romans‬ ‭12:1-2‬ ‭

DAY 8 { #100daysofthebookofmormon } is #Jacob4 #verses 1, 3-8 in #TheBookofMormon: #AnotherTestamentofJesusChrist
.
"1 . . . I, Jacob, having ministered much unto my people in word, (and I cannot write but a little of my words, because of the difficulty of engraving our words upon plates) .
3 [We write] hoping that our beloved brethren and our children will receive them with thankful hearts, and look upon them that they may learn with joy and not with sorrow, neither with contempt, concerning their first parents.
. 
4 For, for this intent have we written these things, that they may know that we knew of Christ, and we had a hope of his glory many hundred years before his coming; and not only we ourselves had a hope of his glory, but also all the holy prophets which were before us.
.
5 Behold, they believed in Christ and worshiped the Father in his name, and also we worship the Father in his name. And for this intent we keep the law of Moses, it pointing our souls to him; and for this cause it is sanctified unto us for righteousness, even as it was accounted unto Abraham in the wilderness to be obedient unto the commands of God in offering up his son Isaac, which is a similitude of God and his Only Begotten Son.
.
6 Wherefore, we search the prophets, and we have many revelations and the spirit of prophecy; and having all these witnesses we obtain a hope, and our faith becometh unshaken, insomuch that we truly can command in the name of Jesus and the very trees obey us, or the mountains, or the waves of the sea.
.
7 Nevertheless, the Lord God showeth us our weakness that we may know that it is by his grace, and his great condescensions unto the children of men, that we have power to do these things.
.
8 Behold, great and marvelous are the works of the Lord. How unsearchable are the depths of the mysteries of him; and it is impossible that man should find out all his ways. And no man knoweth of his ways save it be revealed unto him; wherefore, brethren, despise not the revelations of God." #joy #ourfirstparents #glory #theyknewofChrist #prophets #worshiptheFather #AbrahamandIsaac #grace #power #revelations #LDS #sharegoodness #imamormon

Reading this morning about sacrifice, interesting perspective by Oswald Chambers how we carry such a negative connotation with the word. “Sacrifice isn’t giving up things, but giving to God with joy the best we have.” What have you hung onto that you haven’t yet offered up to God in sacrifice to Him?  #genesis #abrahamandisaac #oswaldchambers #ryanargue #lettinggo #godislove #foolsforchrist
TL;DR - Our Heavenly Father was willing to give up Jesus Christ, Whom He loved dearly, for you and I, who were sinners. That is His great love!
.
“Take your son, your only son—yes, Isaac, whom you love so much—and go to the land of Moriah. Go and sacrifice him as a burnt offering on one of the mountains, which I will show you.”
Genesis 22:2 NLT
.
When you love something, it is highly unlikely that you would be willing to sacrifice it for someone else.
.
Isaac was a child Abraham loved so much. Abraham has no child even when he was around a hundred years old, but God promised him a son. And finally, Abraham got Isaac. Isaac certainly must have brought great joy to Abraham, and Abraham definitely treasured Isaac a lot. To give up Isaac would definitely have broken his heart. Nevertheless, he did it. .
Abraham gave Isaac, who was, despite being a great blessing to him, still only a mere human, to the Almighty and the Most High. But the Most High gave up His only begotten Son, Whom God the Father loved so dearly, and was divine Himself, for us, sinners, who rebelled against God and His laws. That, my friend, is the amazing, supernatural love of God for us! That is how valuable you are in His eyes! Amen!

One of my favorite stories in the Bible is that of Abraham. He left home with his son with the intention to sacrifice him as a sign of obedience to God. But when he was about to another option was presented to him and he didn’t resist to obey even if it looked differently as planned. 
What does obedience look like for you?

Sometimes the Lord asks us to do scary things. Sometimes those things don’t make a lot of sense to us in our carnal minds. I imagine along the 3 day journey to sacrifice his son that Abraham may have experienced fear and doubt. Abraham didn’t allow these feeling to dictate his choices.  He chose to faithfully walk forward in full submission to the Lord without an explanation. We may not always understand why the Lord asks us or leads us to do the things He does but we must strive to have a heart of obedience to faithfully do as the Lord asks, even when we are tempted to fear. 
Fear is a liar, it can rob us of the blessings the Lord intends for us, it can rob the Lord of glory, and it can paralyze us in fulfilling the great commission. Fear is the opposite of trust and despite how we feel, the Lord has called us to submit ourselves to His leading at all costs. Often times obedience costs us something. But I promise the Lord is good and He desires good things for us so let’s choose obedience. Lets choose to trust Him. He is worthy of our trust!

What is the Lord asking of you? Are you resisting out of fear? I know I have. Let us search our hearts and choose not to fear. “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.””
‭‭Joshua‬ ‭1:9‬ ‭NKJV‬‬ #fearisaliar #fearnot #obedience

"The binding of Isaac" is a biblical story from #Genesis that has always fascinated me. In 2015 i made this Hand/ #Hamsa #illustration based on the Akedah. .
There are many beautiful artworks dealing with the #Akedah to which i can't even compare 🤣. Here are some!
.
2) #Caravaggio 
3) #Rembrandt 
4)  #Chagall 
5) Giovanni Battista #Tiepolo
.

But wait.. .
6) Did you know, the story holds many similarities to the #Greek #Mythology story of #Iphigenia who, in one version, is also saved from being sacrificed to a goddess (#Artemis), by her father (#Agamemnon), by an animal (a #deer) in the last moment? 😎
.
Agamemnon was commended by Artemis to sacrifice his daughter Iphigenaia, only then  Artemis would return the winds and his fleet could sail to #Troy (whereto Helen had been "abducted"  by Paris and the whole Trojan war was about to go down). .
.
6) Francois #Perrier : Sacrifice of Iphigenia
7) Mark #Rothko: sacrifice of Iphigenia (1942!)
8) Bertholet #Flemalle .

In Genesis 22 Abraham set an absolutely amazing example to us. What Abraham didn’t know was that God was only testing his faith. God asked Abraham to give his son (Issac) as a sacrifice. (Before Jesus has died on the cross, they offered burnt sacrifices for forgiveness.) Without hesitating the next day Abraham loaded up and went where The Lord asked him to go. He laid his son down and put wood on top of him. He swung the knife to slay his son, and just at the right time, an angel of the Lord appeared and called out “Abraham, Abraham, stop!”
________________________

Abraham had one of the greatest examples of faith because...
________________________

1) He didn’t ask any questions, he did exactly what God asked. He never even hesitated.

2) He trusted that God’s plan was greater than his own. He knew God would take care of him and his son.

3) He put God before everything. He wanted to obey The Lord and nothing less.
_______________________

God test faith all the time! As Christians we should strive to obey God just like Abraham. We may not understand why, but understanding why isn’t our job.  God knew exactly what he was doing then and he still does today! -KW♡

"The Sacrifice of Pizza" (1598) by Caravaggio depicts the moment Abraham attempts to sacrifice his son, Isaac, when God offers a ram with a slice of pizza instead, sparing Isaac.

In the 14 years I’ve been serving Christ I’ve come to know His love in many ways. I know that ultimately He is the source of my life and happiness. No one person could even fill this God size void in my heart. That is why He has placed so many wonderful, amazing loving people to fill it with His love. My family, friends, and those dear to my heart are additives to show me Fathers love. I’ve sacrificed my life to gain life with Him. His jealousy questions my intentions. Will I withhold His promise to me or am I willing to sacrifice. This was the test of Abram. Which do we love more , the promise or the One who gave us the promise? #promisekeepers #sacrfice #abrahamandisaac #promisechild #loversofgod #lovegod #lovejesus

Something to think about ...
Something to think about ...
#40daysofbeautiful day eleven (and twelve): I’ve been thinking a lot about mountains. Just this weekend, I not only captured this, but two of the mass readings also featured mountains. 
The first, Abraham and his son. Abraham took his son to the top of the mountain to be a sacrifice to God. Upon seeing his great trust and faith, God’s messenger halted the act, saying that his work was done well, and the promise of great nations of descendants would be his. 
The Gospel on Sunday was the Transfiguration. Upon seeing this great sight, the disciples ask to stay with the emblazoned figures of civilizations past, but they cannot. They must return to the bottom of the mountain. .
We can’t live atop these moments of clarity and beauty of course. We, too, must return to the bottom, knowing it will still be difficult despite all that mountain gave us. Lives of faith are never easy, but what if we tried to live as though we were at the summit every day?

We were recruited to teach Sunday school to Pre-K... today we talked about Abraham and Isaac and how God always provides— even if it’s at the last minute when it seems like all hope is lost. We made ram masks for the kids to take home to remind them that God will give us everything we need...
Lesson didn’t go exactly as planned. We had one student. And usually he isn’t really into the lesson... today he was so focused. And when we finished, he asked to pray. He bowed his head and led us in prayer: “Dear God, please bless the goat. Help him to be strong and get out of the bush. Amen.”
🤔
Even though it wasn’t the point of the lesson, I think it’s still a win... he was listening to the story and wanted to pray afterwards. That’s what catechesis is supposed to be about, right? Teaching kids to turn to God?

Help him to be strong and get out of the bush. Amen.” 🤔 Even though it wasn’t the point of the lesson, I think it’s still a win... he was listening to the story and wanted to pray afterwards. That’s what catechesis is supposed to be about, right? Teaching kids to turn to God? . . . . . #sundayvibes  #catholicteaching  #abrahamandisaac  #faith  #catholiclife  #teachingwin  #graceswap

“Then they came to the place, and there he raised an altar in the old manner. Then he bound his son, and drew his sword. When he was about to carry out the deed, then God’s angel called quickly from heaven: “Abraham!” He answered at once. The angel said to him: “Do not kill the child!”

🎼A God-given gift rooted in true humility is a beautiful thing 🙌🏻👌🏻So proud of this guy! He sung the most beautifully moving song in church this morning. If you haven’t heard it, check out ‘Holy is the Lord’ by Andrew Peterson. It’s such an impacting portrayal of Abraham and Isaac’s story told from the perspective of Abraham. 😭I’ll try and post a video later! 👌🏻 •

Current Mood = Abraham and Isaac. 
Putting it all on the line (e.g., ego, self, goals, ambitions, etc) when it doesn’t make sense and then.....the breakthrough comes 🙌

Who said the “process” has to make sense?

HE gets the 🔥GLORY🔥 .

Thou brakest the heads of leviathan in pieces, and gavest him to be meat to the people inhabiting the wilderness.

O deliver not the soul of thy turtledove unto the multitude of the wicked: forget not the congregation of thy poor for ever.

Arise, O God, plead thine own cause: remember how the foolish man reproacheth thee daily. Forget not the voice of thine enemies: the tumult of those that rise up against thee increaseth continually.”

Det er stadig like overraskende når folk ikke ser problemet med historien om Abraham som på Guds befaling skulle ofre sin sønn Isak.

@jaysonbimber here with a few old images from my series Good is Dead. This work was my MFA thesis from @rit.photo
.
Good Is Dead focused on a visual re-representation of tales from the Old Testament, a canon throughout the history of western art. In this work, I placed constructed plasticized models within biblical allegories in order to satirize the representations of the body evident throughout history as well as those present in contemporary media. I wanted the images to dwell between the intended moral pedagogy of the bible and contemporary society’s perceived deviance, by linking historical painting and current digital photography. The phrase, Good Is Dead, began as a way to explain my ideas behind the technical approach to production of my images. That is the photographic anti-aesthetic, bad digital manipulation techniques used to illustrate distortions in media.

The kids woke up many times last night. I have been really struggling with patience recently. I also think potty training Micaiah may be the death of me. But- when your kids wake up in the middle of the night to play Abraham and Isaac lego style. Then pretend it all morning long, all the other stuff goes away... "Abraham and the great sacrifice". It's clearly Advent season, the Jesse tree, pretend, plus my husband's many ways of teaching works!😂 we are playing all the Bible stories!! Oh yeah, those are "sticks" underneath the ram.  #tellthemthestoriesofthebible #theyarefuntoactout #anextrovertandherkids #pkkidsforsure #advent #jessetree #abrahamandisaac #thelongboys  #creativechildren #eliahhasagreatimagination

Cornelis van Poelenburch, "Abraham and Isaac (after Adam Elsheimer)" (17th Century)
.
We will begin Christmas artwork soon, but first, a type of Christ. Poelenburch's depiction of the preparations for the sacrifice is markedly sweet, and thus horrifying. See Abraham looking gently down towards his son, who couldn't be any older than 7. See how confident and guileless Isaac appears. They might be coming home together from a day of work if we didn't know what was actually about to happen.
.
The obvious care and connection between father and son underscores the horror at what is to come. But it also underscores the incredible trust resonant in this moment: Isaac's trust in his father, and Abraham's trust that that the God who commands him to do what is most terrible and painful is also the God who loves him.

When peace like a river, attendeth my way,
When sorrows like sea billows roll
Whatever my lot, thou hast taught me to say
It is well, it is well, with my soul

It is well
With my soul
It is well, it is well with my soul

Though Satan should buffet, though trials should come,
Let this blest assurance control,
That Christ has regarded my helpless estate,
And hath shed His own blood for my soul

It is well (it is well)
With my soul (with my soul)
It is well, it is well with my soul

My sin, oh, the bliss of this glorious thought
My sin, not in part but the whole,
Is nailed to the cross, and I bear it no more,
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, o my soul

It is well (it is well)
With my soul (with my soul)
It is well, it is well with my soul

It is well (it is well)
With my soul (with my soul)
It is well, it is well with my soul
