Abraham and Isaac Lesson

There was a good man named Abraham. And God told Abraham, Leave your father's house and go to a place where I will show you. You will have children and they will have many children and grandchildren and you will all be blessed.

So Abraham left, as God told him. He took his wife named Sarah and his brother's son, named Lot, because he had no children of his own, and they took all that they owned along with all the people who wanted to go with them. They went to a place called Canaan.

Abraham had a lot of gold, silver, and animals and many people that had followed him to Canaan, and Lot had his own animals and people who had followed, too.

After a while, there wasn't enough food and water in Canaan because Abraham and Lot each had so many people and animals to take care of. They even started to fight with each other. So Abraham said to Lot, There's plenty of land here. Let's move apart a little bit and live in peace.

Then God made a promise to Abraham. God said, Look all around you as far as you can see. I will give you and your family all this land, forever, and you will have so many children and grand children and great grandchildren, that you won't be able to count them all.

Soon after that, there was a war where Lot lived, so Abraham took his friends and saved Lot from danger until there was peace again. Lot and his family lived in the city of Sodom. There was another city nearby called Gomorrah. There were a lot of bad people in Sodom and Gomorrah.

One day the Lord visited Abraham! It was Jesus with two of his angels! What would you do if Jesus came to your house to visit you? Well, Abraham and Sarah made a nice meal for them. While they talked, Jesus told Abraham that Sarah would have a son, but they were both very old, and when Sarah overheard what Jesus said, she laughed to herself. Then the Lord asked Abraham, Is anything too hard for the Lord?

The Lord and the two angels were getting ready to leave, and they were headed to Sodom and Gomorrah to burn it all down because of all the bad things that people did there. Abraham was afraid because he knew Lot and his family lived there and he knew that they were good people.

So Abraham stopped the Lord and asked that if there were 50 good people there, if He would change His mind. And the Lord said yes. Abraham asked again, If there are 45 good people, will you change your mind? And the Lord said, Yes. Again, Abraham asked about 40 people, then 30 people, then 20 people and finally, Abraham asked one last time. Lord, what if there are 10 good people there? And the Lord said, I will not burn it if there are 10.

The two angels went to Sodom, and Lot invited them to his house. Before long, the bad people from the city knocked on Lot's door and wanted to hurt the angels. The angels told Lot that if he wanted to save his family, to sneak them out of the city because the Lord was going to burn it down. The angels said, Run for your lives and don't look back or you will die too.

So Lot did as he was told. And as Lot and his wife and his two daughters were running from the city, Lot's wife turned her head and looked back at the city that was burning with fire from Heaven, and she turned into a pillar of salt.

Abraham and Sarah were getting even older now. Sarah was sure that she was too old to have babies, even though God told Abraham that one day he would have so many children, grandchildren and great grandchildren that you wouldn't even be able to count them. When Abraham was 99 years old he saw God again. God promised Abraham that Sarah would still have a baby, and to name him Isaac.

The Lord didn't forget Sarah, just as he had promised, and Sarah and Abraham had a son. They named him Isaac, which means laughter, because Sarah laughed when she heard the Lord tell Abraham that they would have a son in their old age.

One day, God tested Abraham to see how much Abraham loved God. He told Abraham to give Isaac to God for a present. If Abraham did this, he knew he would never see his son Isaac again. Abraham loved Isaac, but he loved God more. Just as Abraham was about to give Isaac to God, an angel said ... Stop!

God saw that Abraham loved God more than his own son, so God let Abraham keep Isaac. Abraham, Isaac and God were all very happy.

Abraham was a very old man now. He didn't want Isaac to marry anyone from Canaan, so he told his favorite servant to go back to the place where he grew up and find a wife for Isaac. Abraham told his servant that the Lord would send an angel ahead of him to lead him to the woman that God wanted Isaac to marry.

So Abraham's servant went where Abraham told him to go. When he got there, he went to the well where the women of the city go to get water. And he prayed that the woman he asked to get water for him would ask him if she could get water for his camels too, and that she would be the one that God wanted Isaac to marry ... And before he was even finished with his prayer, a girl named Rebekah came out with a pitcher on her shoulder and asked him the very thing he asked for in his prayer! Rebekah and her family agreed that she should go with him. Isaac loved Rebekah the moment he saw her, and they were married.

The Abraham and Isaac Lesson story teaches us that God wants us to believe in Him and make our choices based on that faith.

There is a force out there that is attempting to overtake us all; it is Satan. There is another force that is protecting us from him; it is the Holy Spirit. It is a battle for souls. This battle is called Spiritual Warfare, and like it or not, you are right in the middle of it.
