I have been putting together these happenings to compose an email to send to my companions in this journey. I am going to insert in that email the most revealing writing I have read so far, (LAZARUS AND THE RICH MAN.). I don’t know exactly who wrote it but, that’s just the beauty of it, it comes from the Father Himself! Quote:
Excerpt From Lazarus And The Rich Man: Father Of The Faithful
If YHWH cannot accomplish and fulfill His own will, what hope is there for us? It is a gross lack of faith to believe that YHWH will not accomplish His own will. And whatsoever is not of faith is sin.
The reason Abraham is in this parable, is because Abraham is the “father” of the faithful.
Abraham BELIEVED YHWH.
By unbelief are they [the Jews] broken out, yet you stand in faith” (Rom 11:20). Now listen to Paul’s admonition very carefully:
“Be not haughty, but fear” (Ver. 20). YHWH parts to each the measure of faith (Rom. 12:4). Yet most Christians think faith is the one thing, for sure, that they must contribute on their own to be saved. To believe such a thing is not only unscriptural, but vane as well.
All of the haughty arrogance of Christendom would vanish over night if they would just believe and comprehend this one beautiful and profound verse of Scripture:
“Now what have you which you did not obtain? Now if you obtained it also, why are you boasting as though not obtaining?” (I Cor. 4:7).”
We must be thankful that YHWH is calling us (the Gentiles), and to not be haughty.
Does any think that we are special but the cast-off Jews are not? No! The Jews are very special to YHWH. The Rich man asked for “mercy,” and he will yet receive mercy. “…YHWH is able to graft them in again.” (Rom. 11:24).
