Did you know Abraham Fell Asleep?

Did you know that in Genesis 15:8-21, when God made the promise to Abraham, he asked for certain animals to be brought to Him?

Abraham brought the animals, cut them into two (except the birds) and they were arranged in 2 rows opposite each other. But Abraham fell asleep during this “promise signing ceremony”. God made His promise and walked between the 2 rows in a blazing torch, WITHOUT Abraham! It goes to show that it was solely left to God to deliver His promise to Abraham and to us today.

Praise the Lord who knew we were going to sin (fall) and arranged a rescue plan and HAS executed His plan through Jesus Christ. We only have to believe what Jesus did as the ultimate sacrifice to receive all the blessings through Abraham and more importantly to be right with God again.

I asked Leong Tien Fook that after all the pain and suffering that Jesus went through on the cross, did God the trinity know all along that it would happen and he said yes. Revelations 13:8 says “…the Lamb that was slain from the creation of the world”.

How awesome is God’s love for us that He still created us to have fellowship with Him despite knowing all that is to come. THAT is love.
