'Abraham you will sacrifice you beloved son instead of the lamb if you have faith in me'
The journey starts
Abraham leaves the servants behind
'stay here with my donkey and dont leave until i return, for the better'
God calles out to Abraham, he tells him to go to the land of Moriah and to sacrifice his only son on the top of a specific mountain, that god will lead him to. This was a test to see if god could trust abraham and if he would do anything for his heavenly father of the land.
Isaac questions his father
'father, where is the sacrifice?'
The next day Abraham collects his son, his two servants and a donkey and sets off. Abraham wasn't feeling his best, as he was still very confused why God will ask him to sacrifice his pride and joy, but he did as God told.
When they reach the chosen mountain Abram sharpens his knife, gathers the wood, while holding the flaming torch. He tells the servants to stay at the bottom of the mountain with the donkey and not to leave until he returns.
Isaac asks his father 'where is the sacrifice' Abraham turns his head quickly and looks away with mixed emotions. He wasn't ready although he new it was right, God will always provide therefore he knew what he was doing.
Abraham finally tells his son that he is the sacrifice, Isaac understood and knew that it was the right thing to do. Abraham lays out the wood and lights the fire. As he got ready to plunge a knife through his sons chest an angel appeared.
Gods angel tells Abraham that he has proven his willingness and faith for god, the angel blesses abraham and tells isaac that he will have as many sons as there are in the night sky. As Abraham unties Isaac, they spot a ram, as you always need a sacrifice for god, they killed it. They thank god and the angel and go back to the village.
'God doesn't want you to sacrifice your son ,it was a test to see if you had full willingness and trust for god, I came here to blesses you both, Isaac because of your father's good deeds you will have as many sons as there are in the sky tonight!
