In Mid Air:

God had asked Abraham to take his only son Isaac and offer him as a sacrifice to God on Mount Moriah. You'll find this story in the book of Genesis Chapter 22. Abraham obeyed God and took his journey to Mt Moriah with his only son Isaac. The journey took three days to get there. When they arrived at the place, Abraham and Isaac left the men who traveled with them and proceeded up the mountain. Upon arriving Isaac said to his father "Behold the fire and the wood: but where is the lamb for a burnt offering?" I like how Abraham answered him, "My son, God will provide himself a lamb for a burnt offering:" Abraham knew what God had told him to do but Isaac did not. But Abraham trusted God in spite of the ongoing situation at hand. As Isaac was bound on that altar that day and as Abraham had begun to bring the knife down upon his son Isaac, an angel of the Lord stopped him. And folks, I believe without a doubt that the angel stopped Abraham while his hand was in mid air and on its way down. Abraham and Isaac had been coming up one side of the mountain while a ram was coming up the other. This story was a picture of Jesus being offered as God's only Son on the cross for you. Have you put your faith in the Lord Jesus Christ? He loves you and yes he died for you. Will U trust Him today?
