Zechariah 7: Obedience Better than Fasting

Published

on

The Mosaic Law required of the Jews on day of annual fasting because of the Day of Atonement.

They, however, added another fast to the religious calendar as a reminder of the destruction of the Temple.

With the construction of the House of God in progress, they argued whether they should continue to fast for the Temple.

The Most High replied saying that the people were more concerned with religious formalities than with pleasing Him.

The fast that please the Lord consists of acts of righteousness, mercy and faith. Later on , the Lord Jesus taught His disciples about that (matt. 23.23) After all, what good are a person’ s prayers, praises, fasting, and the practice of religious tradition if they are living in sin (there is no righteousness), are selfish (there is no mercy), and are independent of God (there is no faith)?

Genesis 22: Abraham’s Faith Confirmed

Published

Although they believe in Jesus, have received a few blessings, and attend church regularly, they continue to contradict God’s will by their actions.

They seem t have a pure faith, and their garments seem perfectly genuine, but the Lord see what no one else can – grudges in their hearts, malice, pride, selfishness, evil intentions, spiritual neglect, emotion faith, unreliability, hypocrisy, and everything else that makes them unworthy to participate in the marriage of the Lamb (Rev. 19.7).

Genesis 21: Isaac Is Born

Published

on

The Lord visited Sarah. The birth of Isaac guaranteed the continuation of the Abrahamic Covenant. The Most High not only cured Sarah’s barrenness, but renewed the organs of her body so that she became young again. Abraham waited 25 years to see the promise fulfilled. This shows that everything happens at the time the Lord God determines. As time passes, one by one His promises will be fulfilled.
