Why Abraham is part of the “God>Abraham>Moses>Jesus>Catholic Church>us Connection.”

Abraham passed “God’s Obedience Test”.  He is one of the Living Links that connect God>Abraham>Moses>Jesus>Catholic Church>us.


Question 1:  “When and where did God give Abraham ‘God’s Obedience Test’?”

Answer:  “The First Book of The Bible tells about ‘God’s Obedience Test’ in Genesis 22:1-18.   ‘God put Abraham to The Test.  He called to him, ‘Abraham!’  Abraham heard God, and answered:  ‘Here I am!'”

Then, God gave him ‘The Test’‘Then God said:  Take your son, Isaac, your only son, whom you love and go to the land of Moriah.  There, you shall offer him up as a holocaust on a height that I will point out to you.’


Question 2:  “Did Abraham pass ‘The Obedience Test’ God gave him?”

Answer:  “‘When they came to the place of which God had told him, Abraham built an altar there and arranged the wood on it.Then he reached out and took the knife to slaughter his son.’


Question 3:  “Did God let Abraham kill his son, Isaac?”

Answer:  “His willingness to obey God was all he needed to ‘pass The Test’‘Do not lay your hand on the boy,’ said the messenger.  ‘Do not do the least thing to him.  I know now how devoted you are to God, since you did not withhold from God your own beloved son.’


Question 4:  “What was the result of Abraham’s ability to ‘pass The Test’ and love God more than anything on earth?”

Answer:  “‘Again The Lord’s messenger called to Abraham from heaven and said:  ‘I swear by myself, declares The Lord, that because you acted as you did in not withholding from me your beloved son, I will bless you abundantly and make your descendants as countless as the stars of the sky and the sands of the seashore;  .  .  .’


Question 5:  “Did the fact that Abraham ‘passed God’s Obedience Test’ help other people on earth?”

Answer:  “This is where God’s Prophecy becomes staggering!  ‘.  .  your descendants shall take possession of the gates of their enemies, and in your descendants all the nations of the earth shall find blessing — all this because you obeyed My command.’


Question 6:  “How will Abraham’s ‘descendents’ let ‘all the nations of the earth find blessing’?”

Answer:  “‘all the nations of the earth have found blessing’ through Catholic priests and religious.  Those ‘obedient descendants of Abraham’ have taken Holy Vows of Poverty, Celibacy, and Obedience.  They are Ordained with The Power to Provide The Catholic Communion that Jesus told us 14 times what we must have for ‘life’.

‘If you do not eat My Body and drink My Blood you do not have life in you.’


Question 7:  “If Abraham had not obeyed, would God’s Son have been able to come to earth by The Grace of Mary and give His Life to Speak One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic Church Into Being with His Word:

‘And I say unto you thou art Peter and on this rock I build My Church and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.  I give you the keys to The Kingdom of Heaven.’?

Answer:  “The Son of God, The Second Person of The Holy Trinity, made it possible for Catholic priests to be Ordained in the Only Church He Spoke Into Being with His Church-Creating Word.  They have brought ‘life’ to hundreds of billions of people ‘in all the nations of the earth’ for 2,000 years.”


The Catholic Church and Her ‘keys to The Kingdom of Heaven’ are here because Abraham ‘passed God’s Obedience Test’.  Hundreds of billions of Catholics who are ‘descendants’ from Abraham’s obedience ‘find blessing’ by striving to pass our ‘Obedience Test’.

Hundreds of billions of Catholic souls rejoicing eternally in Heaven are ‘blessings’ we owe to Abraham for “passing God’s Obedience Test”.  He is an important link in “The God>Abraham>Moses>Jesus>Catholic Church>us” connection.
