Genesis 22:5 “And Abraham said unto his young men, Abide ye here with the ass; and I and the lad will go yonder and worship and come again to you.”
Genesis 22:6 “And Abraham took the wood of the burnt offering, and laid it upon Isaac his son; and he took the fire in his hand, and a knife; and they went both of them together.”
The third item Abraham went with is fire! Fire in the bible represents the God-head, especially the person of the Holy Spirit.
Acts 2:2 “And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting”
Acts 2:3 “And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them.”
Acts 2:4 “And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost…”
Fire is symbolic of the Holy Spirit and if there is any personality you cannot do without, he is the One. Any attempt to travel the path of life without Him is inviting disaster.
The Holy Spirit is our constant guide and companion. The journey to success will never be complete without Him, because he is the One who knows the way and shows the way.
Remember that God only told Abraham to go worship or sacrifice on one of the mountains:
Genesis 22:2 “And he said Take now thy son, thine only son Isaac, whom thou lovest and get thee into the land of Moriah; and offer him there for a burnt offering upon one of the mountains which I will tell thee of.”
It was the Holy Spirit that eventually pointed the exact mountain to him. In life, we are on a journey and without constant and proper guidance we will miss our way and success will elude us.
Beloved, fall in love with the personality of the Holy Spirit and never make a move without Him.
The final item Abraham went with is “a knife”.
What does a knife represent?
