DE CE UN ALT MESIA ?


In timpul guvernarii lui Pilat din Pont, cand poporul a avut posibilitatea sa aleaga intre Baraba si Domnul Yeshua Ha Mashiach , evreii au facut o alegere gresita . De atunci a trecut mult timp, dar din pacate, nici in zilele noastre atitudinea omului nu s-a schimbat prea mult .

 Preotii cei mai de seama si batranii au induplecat noroadele sa-l ceara pe Baraba , iar pe Isus sa-L omoare ( Matei 27: 20 ).

Baraba, talharul de odinioara , simbolizeaza o lume pregatita sa primeasca orice,  si pe oricine,  in locul lui Yeshua Ha Mashiach . Ea doreste putere politica, infiintand in acest scop o noua religie, o noua ideologie  care propaga ura, razvratirea, terorismul, razboaiele si anarhia. Societatea in care traim este hotarata sa Il inlature cu tot dinadinsul  pe Adevaratul si Unicul Mesia  si sa isi aleaga un Baraba antichristic. Oamenii au nevoie de un Eliberator, dar Il resping pe Domnul, adica pe Singurul care le-ar putea aduce adevarata slobozenie. ( Mai departe , AICI )

  6. Rodica zice:

    Salom. Draga Otniela , va admir mult ca poeta si prozatoare. Scrieti foarte frumos, cu o minte clara, echlibrata , se vede ca sunteti o erudita. Insa eu nu cred , si va rog sa ma credeti ca am citit despre Orientul apropiat, ca templul evreilor se va reconstrui . Nu vad cum moscheea aceea , bat-o vina ! , s-ar putea darama. Am auzit destule pe tema aceasta. In familie , eu sotul si fiii nostri dezbatem aceasta problema, dar cu toata animozitatea din zona aceea , cred ca vorbim totusi doar despre supozitii. Sa fiti iubita !

  7. Valentina Radu zice:

    Pt. d-na Rodica.
    Dar de ce ar trebui moscheea sa fie data jos ? Nu prea inteleg. Fara ea nu se poate ? Eu cred ca templul ar putea fi construit oriunde la Ierusalim, numai sa zica Dumnezeu : acum ! Sa aveti parte de Shalom.

    Shabbat Shalom !

    As the Shabbat was coming in, just a few minutes ago, and the sky was getting dark here in Israel, all of a sudden, there were bright shining lights and loud kabooms. One might think that missiles were raining down, or Yeshua was coming in the dark cloudy sky – but no, it was lightning like we have never seen before and torrential rain.

    This is a great start to the Shabbat as we really need the rain here in the Holy Land to fill the Sea of Galilee (Kinneret), as most of Israel’s drinking water comes from this source.

    Welcome to this week’s Torah portion, which is called Lech Lecha – God’s call to Abraham to „Go Forth!”

    This Parsa (Portion of Scriptures) which will be read in synagogues around the world during the Shabbat (Saturday) service. Please read along with us today. We know you will be blessed!

    LECH LECHA (Go Forth!)
    Genesis 12:1–17:27; Isaiah 40:27–41:16; Romans 4:1–25

    “The Lord had said to Abram, ‘Go [lech lecha] from your country, your people and your father’s household to the land I will show you.’” (Genesis 12:1)

    Last week, in Parsha Noach (Noah), God instructed Noah to build an ark (tievah) and coat it inside and out with pitch. That ark would save Noah–the only righteous man left in the world–and his family, as well as a pair of each kind of animal.

    This Shabbat’s Parsha (Torah portion) is about journeys–specifically journeys that take us home.

    Lech Lecha, roughly translated as “Go!” or “Leave!” or “Go ye,” carries one of the most exciting messages in the Bible – God’s call to His people to aliyah (literally to go up or to ascend) –to leave country, kindred, and home and go to the Promised Land.

    Today, the word aliyah in Hebrew means to immigrate to the Land of Israel. A person who ‘makes aliyah’ (immigrates to Israel) is called an oleh (m) or olah (f) – one who goes up. Abram was the first oleh in Biblical history.

    The prophet Isaiah also foretold a day in the end times when many people from the nations would say, “‘Come, let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, to the Temple of the God of Jacob. He will teach us his ways, so that we may walk in his paths.’ The law will go out from Zion, the word of the Lord from Jerusalem.” (Isaiah 2:3)

    Leaving the Security of the Comfortable

    “So Abram went, as the LORD had told him; and Lot went with him. Abram was seventy-five years old when he set out from Harran.” (Genesis 12:4)

    God called Abram to leave all that was familiar, secure, comfortable and beloved, in order to go to an unknown land where he would dwell as a stranger.

    This parallels the call of God to many in our generation to ‘come home’ to the Land of Israel.

    God promises in His Word to bring His people home from all four directions of the earth and He is fulfilling His Word in our very day – and it’s so exciting! God is bringing back to His Land the exiles of Israel, never again to be uprooted from the land that He has given us!

    “‘I will bring back the captives of My people Israel; they shall build the waste cities and inhabit them… I will plant them in their land, and no longer shall they be pulled up from the land I have given them,’ says the Lord your God.” (Amos 9:14-15)

    The call to Abraham is a call to each and every Jewish person in this hour: Lech lecha! Go forth! This very much is the heart of God, and always has been.

    In fact, Yeshua’s (Jesus) last words to His disciples before His ascension were also ‘go forth!’

    “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations….” (Matthew 28:19-20)

    This doesn’t mean that we must all become missionaries. Obeying the call of Lech Lecha may not necessarily require a geographical change either, but God is calling each of us to step out of our comfort zones and be willing to follow His Spirit on a journey to a place that He will show us.

    Leaving behind everything that is familiar and heading straight into an unknown future certainly stretches our faith in the Almighty, but He is faithful.

    Will we trust Him enough to take this leap of faith as did Abram in order to receive the reward?

    A Torah scroll is held up for all to see at the Western Wall in Jerusalem.

    Goy Gadol (Great Nation)

    “I will make you into a great nation [goy gadol] and I will bless you; I will make your name great, and you will be a blessing.” (Genesis 12:2)

    In Genesis 12:2, God promises Abraham that he would become a great nation –a ‘goy gadol’ in Hebrew. The word gadol means either big or great and the word goy is used for nation, but can also mean a Gentile (non-Jew).

    We can keep in mind, however, that at this point, Abraham was in fact, not a Jew. He was a man living in Babylonia, who entered into covenant with His Creator. The important part of the equation is the covenant, not our lineage.

    Abraham, through this covenant with God, was to be blessed and to be a blessing to all humanity.

    Interestingly enough, the Hebrew word for blessing (brakha) may be changed to spring of water (breikha) with just one minor vowel change.

    God is the source of all blessing, and Yeshua is the fountain of springs of living water (John 4:14).

    Blessings and Curses

    “I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse; and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you.” (Genesis 12:3)

    In Genesis 12:3, God makes a profound promise to Abraham that whoever blesses him will be blessed and whoever curses him will be cursed. This promise, which was extended to Isaac and then Jacob (Israel) and his descendants, has proven true throughout history and still holds true today.

    The totality of European history throughout the centuries teaches one lesson: those nations which have dealt fairly and mercifully with the Jews have prospered; however, the nations which have oppressed and mistreated the Jewish people have come under a curse through their own actions.

    Is anyone seeking God’s blessing? A sure way to receive His blessing, according to the Word, is by blessing Israel and the Jewish people.

    How would all the families of the earth be blessed through Abraham? The Bible foretells that through Abraham would come the Messiah, a light shining in the spiritual darkness of this world.

    “The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light… For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given….” (Isaiah 9:2, 6)

    The Messiah was not sent only to save Israel, but all of mankind!

    “It is too small a thing that You should be My Servant to raise up the tribes of Jacob, and to restore the preserved one of Israel; I will also give You as a light to the Gentiles (goyim), that you should be My salvation to the ends of the earth.” (Isaiah 49:6)

    The Blessing of Abraham

    “There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Messiah Yeshua. If you belong to Messiah, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.” (Galatians 3:28)

    There is another aspect of the blessing of Abraham that Believers need to comprehend: anyone who is in the Messiah is considered the ‘seed of Abraham’ and an equal heir to the blessings of Abraham as well.

    That means that one does not need to be the physical seed of Abraham to receive the blessings!

    The book of Galatians declares that because of what Yeshua (Jesus) did, the blessing of Abraham can be ours, whether Jew or Gentile, male or female, bond or free, through our faith in Yeshua haMashiach (Jesus the Messiah).

    God actually swore by His own self, for there was none greater, promising to bless and multiply Abraham, who patiently endured and received the promises. (Hebrews 6:13-15)

    “And so, after he had patiently endured, he obtained the promises.” (Hebrews 6:15)

    So, too, if we will also patiently endure and continue believing in faith, God will bring to pass His promises of blessing, increase and multiplication, just as He did for Abraham.

    “Abram had become very wealthy in livestock and in silver and gold.” (Genesis 13:1)

    It’s also noteworthy that Lot prospered simply because he went with Abraham.

    Both Abraham and Lot had livestock. When an argument arose among
    their herdsmen, Abraham found a solution that resulted in Lot having the
    better pasture land.

    Blessed are the Peacemakers

    “There was a strife between the herdsmen of Abram’s livestock and the herdsmen of Lot’s livestock: and the Canaanite and the Perizzite lived in the land at that time.” (Genesis 13:7)

    In chapter 13 of Genesis, we see that there was strife between the herdsmen of Lot and the herdsmen of Abraham.

    Because Abraham understood that strife would destroy the blessing of God on his life, as lover of peace, he sought a solution.

    He decided that he and Lot must separate. The fact that Abraham was such a radical peacemaker could very well be one of the reasons why God chose him to be the Father of our faith.

    Abraham was willing to give up anything Lot asked for, just to have peace (shalom) restored in his life.

    “Better a dry morsel with quietness, than a house full of feasting with strife.” (Proverbs 17:1)

    Sometimes separation is the only answer, as it was for Abraham and Lot.

    Abraham passed on this heritage of peacemaking to his son, Isaac, as well. When the Philistines unjustly challenged him over his father’s wells, Isaac chose just to walk away for the sake of peace.

    This wasn’t weakness on either Abraham or Isaac’s part. It was humility.

    It was also the wisdom to know that we absolutely must have peace in order to walk in the blessing and anointing of God! We must treat strife as we would the plague.

    Arguing, bickering and contention bring in confusion and every evil thing! (James 3:16)

    In order to restore peace, however, like Abraham, we may need to sacrifice something important to us and even be willing to accept an unjust situation, trusting God to make it up to us in His way and time.

    Also, we see here the principle about being careful in choosing our companions. Do we follow those who are walking with God, or those who are ‘walking curses’? As someone once said, “If we want to fly like an eagle, we had better stop hanging around with turkeys!”

    Living by Faith

    “I am giving all this land, as far as you can see, to you and your descendants as a permanent possession.” (Genesis 13:15)

    Abraham gave Lot first pick of the land and accepted whatever was left over. Lot chose according to his natural sight.

    The land he chose looked lush and green and fertile. He gave Abraham the leftover brown, barren, dry land.

    Abraham, however, walked by faith and not by sight. He was unmoved by the appearance of the land leftover because he trusted in God.

    The land that Lot chose ended up completely destroyed due to its depravity (Sodom), but Abraham prospered in the Land because he believed God’s promises.

    The Promised Land was Inhabited

    “At that time, the area was inhabited by Canaanites.” (Genesis 12:6)

    When God promised the Land of Israel to Abram, the land was inhabited. So too today, the fact that some Arabs may have been living in the Land that God promised Israel is no reason for Believers to doubt that the Land still belongs to the People of Israel.

    The very fact that the Bible starts with the account of creation establish God as the Creator of the heavens and the earth. The whole earth belongs to the Lord.

    God, the Creator of every inch of land on this earth, has every right to give a portion of His land to whomever He pleases, no matter who happens to be living in the land at the time.

    Likewise, although Shechem, the place where Abraham offered a sacrifice (Genesis 12:6), is now in the ‘Palestinian Arab occupied territory,’ the area still Biblically belongs to the People of Israel.

    God’s promise to Abraham for the land is forever, and God is faithful to His covenant. God’s promise to Abraham, clearly an everlasting covenant, is still in effect today.

    To believe otherwise calls into question the very nature of God.

    God is a covenant keeper!

    He did not break His promise to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob (Israel). Yes, He punished Israel for her sins, but once the time of the punishment was over, He kept His promise to restore the Land and bring His people home.

    But you, O mountains of Israel, will produce branches and fruit for my people Israel, for they will soon come home. I am concerned for you and will look on you with favor; you will be plowed and sown, and I will multiply the number of people upon you, even the whole house of Israel. The towns will be inhabited and the ruins rebuilt. (Ezekiel 36: 8-10)

    The fulfillment of this prophetic Scripture is happening in our very generation. The land is now blossoming and its cities inhabited as He promised, but 99% of the Jewish People do not know that Yeshua (Jesus) is the promised Jewish Messiah.

    “You will arise and have compassion on Zion, for it is time to show favor to her; the appointed time has come.” (Psalm 102:13)

    Shabbat Shalom and Shavua Tov (have a good week) from all of our ministry staff.

    Welcome to Vayera (And He Appeared), this week’s Parsha (Torah Portion). This is the portion of Torah that will be read in synagogues around the world during the Shabbat (Saturday) service. Please read along with us as we dig deep into the Word of God. We are certain that you will be blessed!
    https://www.messianicbible.com

    VAYERA (And He Appeared)
    Genesis 18:1–22:24; 2 Kings 4:1–37; Luke 1:26–38, 24:36–53
    „The Lord appeared to Abraham near the great trees of Mamre while he was sitting at the entrance to his tent in the heat of the day.” (Genesis 18:1)

    Last week, in Parsha Lech Lecha (Go!), God commanded Abraham to leave his native land and go to the Land He promised.
    Parsha Vayera opens with the Lord appearing to Abraham as he sat in his tent door in the heat of the day.
    The rabbis believe that this visit from the Lord occurred while Abraham convalesced after his circumcision at 99 years old.
    It is obvious by his reaction to seeing three unfamiliar men approaching him that Abraham delighted in offering hospitality to these strangers. Even though Abraham did not know who these strangers were, he gave them his best!
    The Word of God promises that as we give, so shall it be given unto us in good measure.

    When we bless others, we plant seeds of blessing that will return into our own lives.

    “The soul who blesses will grow fat [be made rich], and he who waters [satisfies, refreshes] will also be watered [satisfied, refreshed] himself.” (Proverbs 11:25)

    Jewish teenager praying at the Kotel (Western Wall) in Jerusalem. His
    head is bowed low, and he is holding a pen and paper to write a prayer request
    which he will then crumble up and push into a crevice between the large stones.
    All of the white areas in the photo are prayers which people have left.
    Hospitality seems to becoming a lost art in some cultures, especially in the West, where the pace of life doesn’t easily lend itself to making time for all that is involved in caring for people in our homes.
    The culture here in Israel is one in which people may drop over at any time, and you need to be prepared to offer them hospitality. It is a given in this society.
    Even the Brit Chadashah (New Testament) encourages us to show hospitality to strangers: “Be hospitable to one another without grumbling.” (1 Peter 4:9)
    We might even entertain angels unawares!
    The book of Hebrews exhorts us to “Let brotherly love continue. Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for by this some have entertained angels without knowing it.” (Hebrews 13:1–2)

    And in fact, the three men that Abraham entertained were angels. Although the word used in Hebrew is anashim (men), it is clear from the context that two are angels and one is the Lord.

    Extra-Biblical Rabbinic Dietary Laws
    “He then brought some curds and milk and the calf that had been prepared, and set these before them. While they ate, he stood near them under a tree.’” (Genesis 18:8)
    It’s interesting to note that the food which Abraham and Sarah prepared—bread, curd, milk, and a calf—seemed to eaten together at the same meal (Genesis 18:8).

    Anyone who is familiar with today’s Orthodox Rabbinical traditions knows that a separation of dairy and meat products is prescribed. This, of course, is based on the command in Deuteronomy 14:21: „Do not cook a young goat in its mother’s milk.”

    This separation is an extra-Biblical tradition that observant Jews follow as a way of preventing the actual commandment from being broken.

    For that reason, at Kosher restaurants in Israel and around the world, meat and milk products are strictly separated, to the point where some Jewish restaurants do not serve any dairy products whatsoever, and some do not serve meat.

    Sarah and Abraham Hosting Three Angels, the Providence
    Lithograph Company
    But here we read that even Abraham and the Lord Himself, as well as angels ate milk and meat together!
    The separation of milk and meat is only one of hundreds of extra-Biblical traditions or man-made rules (called Halakhah) that many Jews believe they must obey.

    Of course, the rabbis will state (depending on which one you speak with) that Abraham waited either four hours, two hours, or 30 minutes between serving the milk and meat. Still, Scripture is silent on this point.

    Yeshua (Jesus) taught against following traditions that contradict the word of God or would cause us to disobey it.
    Nevertheless, He in all likelihood kept this particular tradition, since it does not contradict the Word of God, and failure to follow this tradition would have set Him apart in an entirely unfavorable way, making it difficult for people to receive Him.

    Supporting our ministry work will make a huge difference in the lives of Jewish people.

    Mo’adim – God’s Appointed Times and Promises Fulfilled

    “Is anything too hard for the Lord? I will return to you at the appointed time (mo’ed) next year and Sarah shall have a son.” (Genesis 18:14)

    After sharing a meal together with Abraham, the angel made an outrageous promise to Abraham and Sarah: next year, at the appointed time (mo’ed), they would have a son.
    The word mo’ed (or mo’adim in the plural form) is used to describe the appointed festival and remembrance times in Leviticus 23. In English these times are loosely translated as ‘feasts of the Lord,’ but this is a poor translation since one is actually a fast.
    The mo’adim are special times that God has chosen or appointed for a specific purpose. In this case, that purpose is the fulfillment of God’s promise to give Abraham and Sarah a son.
    Sarah’s initial reaction to this promise was to laugh to herself because she was well beyond childbearing age.
    To this God responded, “Is anything too hard for the Lord?” (Genesis 18:14)

    There may be promises that we have received from the Lord that perhaps seem impossible; however, we should be encouraged by the words of Yeshua who reminded us, “Everything is possible for him who believes.” (Mark 9:23)

    The birth of Isaac and the birth of Yeshua were both at set times (mo’adim).
    In the Brit Chadashah (New Testament), we see another important mo’ed or set time.

    An angel came to a young, Jewish woman named Miryam (Mary) to tell her that she would conceive without having known a man intimately, by the power of the Ruach HaKodesh (Holy Spirit). Furthermore, her son would be called Yeshua (Salvation), and He would reign eternally over the house of Jacob from the throne of His father David.

    While this may seem outside the realm of possibility, the angel told Miryam that “nothing is impossible with God.” (Luke 1:37)

    The same God who parted the Red Sea can truly make a way where there is no way – if we will only believe. But it has to happen in His way and His time, not our way on our schedule. Our job is to wait in hope, faith, and expectation until the set time (mo’ed) arrives.

    And we can also look forward to yet another set time (mo’ed) when God—who allowed a temporary blindness to come upon His Jewish People so that the fullness of the Gentiles may come in—will remove that blindness. Then all Israel will be saved. How we long for that day!

    The person reading the Torah scroll is following along with a beautifully
    crafted pointer called a yad, which means hand.

    The Minyan: For the Sake of Ten
    “May the Lord not be angry, but let me speak just once more. What if only ten can be found there? He answered, For the sake of ten, I will not destroy it.” (Genesis 18:32)

    The name Abraham means exalted father or father of nations.
    Indeed, we see his compassion extend beyond his own family when he pleaded for the people of Sodom and Gomorrah very much in the way a father would plead for his children.

    Abraham entreated God, asking Him not destroy them if 50 righteous men were found there. But when 50 could not be found, he petitioned on behalf of 40, then 30, then 20, and finally 10.

    God promised Abraham that for the sake of 10 righteous, He would not destroy Sodom.

    This is why a minimum of 10 Jewish men, called a minyan, must be gathered to hold religious (prayer) services in the synagogue.

    Ten is an important number corresponding to the tenth Hebrew letter yud, which was originally the word yad, meaning hand.
    We see this word yad used quite often in Scripture metaphorically to refer to the hand of God – His hand of power and authority and covenant (1 Chronicles 29:12; Isaiah 59:1; Exodus 13:3-16; Numbers 33:3; Psalm 37:24, etc.).
    The number 10 is also significant in the tithe. A tenth of what our fields produce is to be set aside for the Lord (Deuteronomy 14:22). Furthermore, every tenth animal of the herd belongs to the Lord (Leviticus 27:32).
    For the sake of ten, a tenth of our income, God promises to rebuke the devourer on our behalf. He will not allow destruction of our material goods for the sake of a tenth (Malachi 3:6-17).

    „The entire tithe of the herd and flock–every tenth animal that passes
    under the shepherd’s rod–will be holy to the LORD.” (Leviticus 27:32)

    The Depravity of Sodom
    „Then the Lord rained down burning sulfur on Sodom and Gomorrah—from the Lord out of the heavens. Thus he overthrew those cities and the entire plain, including all those living in the cities.” (Genesis 19:24-25)
    Since even 10 righteous men could not be found in Sodom, God proceeded with his plans to destroy the wicked cities of Sodom and Gomorrah.

    Two of the men, angels in disguise, who visited Abraham went down to Sodom to bring out Lot and his family.

    In Lot, we also see the trait of hospitality, for he insisted that these strangers spend the night with him rather than in the open square (Genesis 19:1-3).

    This portion of Scripture directly confronts the sin of homosexuality.
    Although practically accepted as an ‘alternative lifestyle’ in our day, the Bible is clear that it’s an abomination to God.

    The men of Sodom practiced this depravity and called for Lot to send the ‘men’ outside that they could have perverted relations with them (Genesis 19:4).
    We are horrified to read that Lot instead offered to send out his daughters to these men rather than endanger his guests who were strangers.

    Obviously Sodom had infected Lot rather than Lot affecting Sodom.
    We need to be so careful about the environment where we choose to dwell. Lot had a house while Abraham had only a tent; however, it was Abraham’s flimsy but righteous tent that endured and Lot’s solid house in Sodom that was destroyed.

    This is such a clear picture of the truth that “Unless the Lord builds a house they labor in vain who build it.” (Psalm 127:1)

    We see later that Lots’ daughters commit incest with their father to become impregnated by him; they were true daughters of Sodom. Not surprising, given that they had been brought up in such a wicked place.

    Where are we raising our children? May the Holy Spirit give us wisdom and lead and guide us to a good place to train up our children in the ways of righteousness.

    Lot hesitated to leave Sodom, even though he knew it was going to be destroyed. The angels took hold of him, his wife and daughters, and pulled them out of the city. Incredibly, the angels said they could not do anything until they were at a safe distance.

    “‘But hurry! Escape to it, for I can do nothing until you arrive there.’ (This explains why that village was known as Zoar, which means ‘little place.’)” (Genesis 19:22)

    May we be obedient to follow the leading of the Holy Spirit and not resist or delay, since all of heaven may be waiting on us to carry out God’s will in a certain circumstance.

    Once Lot came to Zoar, the Lord destroyed the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah with brimstone and fire He sent out of heaven.

    We cannot see all the ‘natural disasters’ that come upon cities and regions as simply that – natural disasters. For God is Lord over the heavens and the earth; He controls even the weather patterns, and He will judge the wicked if they do not repent. We must warn people to repent even if they laugh and mock at us, just like Lot’s sons-in-law.

    Forget the Former Things

    “But Lot’s wife looked back, and she became a pillar of salt.” (Genesis 19:26) “Remember Lot’s wife.” (Luke 17:32)

    Lot’s wife, in defiance of the angel’s words, looked back at Sodom and Gomorrah and consequently, became a pillar of salt (Genesis 19:26).

    When driving to the Dead Sea, there is still a pillar there that is called ‘Lot’s wife’. It stands as a sober reminder to all of us that when God leads us out of a place, we must look forward to the new thing He is doing in our lives and not look back at the place we have left, lest we be paralyzed.

    It’s hard to drive forward if we keep looking in the rear view mirror.

    The Word of God says to forget the former things and focus on the new thing God is doing. (Isaiah 43:18)

    Further on in this Torah portion, we read that Sarah actually does conceive and bear Abraham a son at the ‘set time’ (mo’ed) of which God had spoken (Genesis 21:1-3).
    Although they had to wait some time for the promise to come to pass, it was fulfilled at God’s set time. He makes all things beautiful in its time. Will we patiently wait with faith for God to bring fulfillment His promises in our lives?

    Let us not waver in faith or nullify the promises through unbelief but be fully convinced, as was Abraham, that God will bring forth His promises, even those that seem not only unlikely but absurd, in His appointed time.

    “He did not waver at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strengthened in faith, giving glory to God, and being fully convinced that what He had promised He was also able to perform.” (Romans 4:20-21)
