The Test

Psalm 32:1-2: NKJV: Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered. Blessed is the man to whom the Lord does not impute iniquity, and in whose spirit there is no deceit.

 

Every person born with the breath of life has an account with our Eternal Almighty.

He is omnipotent with unlimited authority, encompassing power and memory. He holds everyone responsible for their thoughts and actions. ** Hebrews 1:3: Who being the brightness of HIS glory and the express image of HIS person, and upholding all things by the word of HIS power, when HE had by Himself purged out sins, sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high. ** Psalm 139: 12-13: Indeed, the darkness shall not hide from YOU, but the night shines as the day; the darkness and the light are both alike to YOU. For YOU formed my inward parts; YOU covered (wove) me in my mother’s womb. ** The darkness is not dark to YOU and none can escape from HIM. With regularity, HE will test to see if you are worthy to become a part of HIS Eternal Kingdom.  We have all been disobedient descendants of Adam since creation. However, Father God has given each soul a chance for eternal life in the seed of an obedient uncircumcised 75 year old man from Ur of the Chaldeans, a very idolatrous land.

 

 Genesis 12:4: So Abram departed as the Lord had spoken to him, and Lot went with him. And Abram was seventy-five years old when he departed from Haran.  Abram passed the first test. Verse 1: Now the Lord had said to Abram: Get out of your country, from your family and from your father’s house, to a land that I will show you. ** After passing more tests our Almighty God said in Genesis 26:4-5: And I will make your descendants multiply as the stars of heaven; I will give to your descendants all these lands; and in your seed all the nations of the earth shall be blessed; because Abraham obeyed MY voice and kept MY charge, My commandments, My statutes, and MY laws.   ** About 500 years later, as many as 3 million of his descendants departed from Egypt. ** Exodus 12: 37-38: Then the children of Israel journeyed from Ramses to Succoth, about six hundred thousand men on foot, besides children. A mixed multitude went up with them also, and flocks and herds---a great deal of livestock. ** They also were tested in chapter 16 as follows:

 

Exodus 16:4-5: Then the Lord said to Moses: Behold, I will rain bread from heaven for you. And the people shall go out and gather a certain quota every day, that I may test them, whether they will walk in MY law or not. And it shall be on the sixth day that they shall prepare what they bring in, and it shall be twice as much as they gather daily. ** Many failed the test by covetous greed in storing an excess of bread in their tents. ** Verse 19-20: And Moses said: Let no one leave any of it till morning. Notwithstanding they did not heed Moses. But some of them left part of it until morning and it bred worms and stank. And Moses was angry with them. ** Verse 22-23: and so it was, on the sixth day, that they gathered twice as much bread, two omers for each one. And all the rulers of the congregation came and told Moses. Then he said to them: This is what the Lord has said: Tomorrow is a Sabbath rest, a holy Sabbath to the Lord. Bake what you will bake today, and boil what you will boil; and lay up for yourselves all that remains, to be kept until morning. ** The bread from heaven prepared each Friday for forty years did not stink the next morning nor were there any worms in it.  The Apostle John spoke of a more important day of preparation, a high Sabbath day (John 19:31) as follows:

 

John 19:14: Now it was the Preparation day of the Passover, and about the sixth hour (about noon, according to the clock of our Creator).  And he (Pilate) said to the Jews: Behold your King! ** This was truly a day of disgrace, evil and infamy! This is the day our Eternal Creator brought his only Holy Son to the evil infamy level of mankind to shed the only pure and holy blood. The Lamb of God on this day poured out HIS blood to cleanse the sins of many to very soon build a one family of our Almighty God.  Some are branches in the tree of life now building for some that are doers of the will of our Almighty as explained by the Apostle Paul.

 

Romans 11: 19-22: You will say then: branches were broken off that I might be grafted in. Well said: Because of unbelief they were broken off, and you stand by faith. Do not be haughty, but fear. For if God did not spare the natural branches, HE may not spare you either. Therefore consider the goodness and severity of God: on those who fell, severity; but toward you, goodness, if you continue in HIS goodness. Otherwise you also will be cut off. If you continue to sin you will be cut off: John 15:10: If you keep MY commandments, you will abide (continue to walk) in MY love, just as I have kept MY father’s commandments and abide in HIS love. ** Sin is transgression of the law, the Ten Commandments spoken by our Almighty on Mount Sinai. ** Corinthians 15:56: The sting of death is sin, and the strength is the law. But thanks be to God, who give us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. ** Without obedience to abide in all the law in Exodus, chapter 20, Deuteronomy, chapter 5, and Leviticus, chapter 23 we do not abide in the love of the Almighty. The second death at resurrection for most of mankind is eternal as promised to Adam and Eve for not abiding in the love of the Eternal Almighty. (Read Genesis 2:17 and Revelation 20: 14-15).

 

1 Corinthians 11:1: Imitate me, just as I also imitate Christ. ** When we abide in the love of God, we continue to walk as Christ to be a branch attached to the root of which is the love of our Creator. All the Apostles imitated Christ as did the first churches which became a part of Israel as described in Galatians 6:16: And as many as walk according to this rule (a new creation), peace and mercy be upon them, and upon the Israel of God. ** Please do not continue like the whole world to be deceived by the power of the devil: Revelation 12:9:  So the great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was cast to the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. ** Remember the Sabbath day to keep it holy: Genesis 2:3: Then God blessed the seventh day and sanctified (made holy) it, because in it HE rested from all HIS work which God had created and made. ** The Sabbath (Hebrew Shabbat 7676, meaning rest/cease) is a special test for all mankind to see if they will do it.
