So then, those who rely on trusting and being faithful are blessed along with Avraham, who trusted and was faithful.
It has often been said that the Almighty of the so-called Old Testament was a wrathful and angry god. However that can not be true because the Holy One never changes or contradicts Himself. More to the point, faith and trust were always part of the equation, there is nothing new about it. As time went on people lost sight of that, but it is now as it has ever been. The Father desires that we love and fear Him and faithfully keep his commandments, for they are the path to life and peace.
