The Campaign of Israel only occurs twice per year and is the greatest Campaign of Faith. Its purpose is to conquer the promises of God, by placing one’s all on the altar.
Many people ask “What is my all?”
Your all means obedience and self denial. This is where most people fail. The Bible says in 1Samuel 15:22 “…..obedience is better than sacrifice.” For most persons complete obedience to anything is hard.
God demands complete obedience from his people. Abraham was completely obedient to God in any circumstance.
Imagine being asked to sacrifice your child…….in fact your only child, because Abraham had only Isaac with his wife. Would you be able to deny yourself and obey?
Abraham didn’t question God. “By faith Abraham, when he was tested, offered up Isaac, and he who had received the promises offered up his only begotten son… He reasoned that God was able to raise him up, even from the dead” (Hebrews 11:17-19).
This was the faith of Abraham. He obeyed unconditionally. Abraham knew that God was great so he denied himself as a parent and was prepared to sacrifice Isaac.
Today in order to see the promises of God fulfilled in our lives we need to have that Abrahamic faith.
As we experience hardships and difficult periods in our lives, let us not give up. Instead exercise that Abrahamic faith and obey God’s commands in the same way Abraham did.
Sacrifice our desires for the will of God as Abraham did. There is no doubt that we will be as blessed as he was.
Those who participate in this campaign will transmit all their trust to the altar of God.
