Passage: Hebrews 11:17-21       Series Great Cloud of Witnesses
  Description: Great Cloud of Witnesses: Passing the Test! Hebrews 11:17-21 Purpose: People of persevering faith pass God’s tests 1. Abraham believed God could raise the dead! (17-19) Genesis 17:7, 19, 21 God’s promise about Isaac Genesis 22:1-18, especially v 1 “God tested Abraham” 2. Isaac passed on the blessing to the next generation (20) Genesis 27:1–40; 28:1–9 3. Jacob/Israel blessed Joseph’s children, worshipping (21) Genesis 48:1–20 Conclusion: Five Generations, and counting, of God keeping covenant with His people to bring salvation to the nations because Abraham passed the test! God tests His people for His purposes: Genesis 22:1; John 6:1-7; 1 Peter 1:6-9 James 1:1-4; James 1:13 “Faith which is not tested is no faith at all.” Will you pass the test?

Passage: Hebrews 11:13-16       Series Great Cloud of Witnesses
  Description: Great Cloud of Witnesses: God Unashamed! Hebrews 11:13-16 People of persevering faith live for Jesus with focus on heaven “All these witnesses...” (11:13) 1. Died in faith without receiving the promises! (11:13) 2. Welcomed the promises from afar! (11:13) 3. Confessed they were strangers and exiles on earth! (11:13) 4. Why? They were seeking & desiring what? (11:14-15) - a country not of their own - a better country - a heavenly country - a country prepared for them by God Himself Conclusion: People of persevering faith suffer the temporal trials of this life because they are seeking the eternal glories of heaven, and therefore God is unashamed of them! Matthew 10:32; Hebrews 10:35-39; 1 Corinthians 1:25-29 How then shall we live? *Mark 8:34-38 Psalm 73:25-26 2 Peter 3:11-13 Philippians 3:8-10 Colossians 3:1-4 Keep your eyes fixed on Jesus! (Hebrews 12:1-2) Biblical faith in Jesus Christ carries you your whole life long! Ask yourself: “What is my faith really in?” “What is my faith really about?”
