God took Abraham’s name as part of His name! He called Himself the “the God of Abraham!” The Almighty identified Himself with a man. It meant that the reputation of God rested on Abraham. What God was like – a new God to the world in general – would be assumed from what Abraham was like. God risked His name by joining it with Abraham. Abraham believed in the Lord, the Lord believed in Abraham. Something similar is reflected in what Jesus said in Matthew 10:32, “Whoever acknowledges me before men, I will also acknowledge him before my Father in heaven.” That is the inner truth about faith. It is not merely for getting things or doing things or being something. It relates us to God. Faith is fellowship and is always the condition for our relationship with God. God bless you and greetings from Mexico. REINHARD BONNKE
Those whom I love I rebuke and discipline. So be earnest and repent. Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me.
To the one who is victorious, I will give the right to sit with me on my throne, just as I was victorious and sat down with my Father on his throne.
Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches.
