While WLC continues to uphold the observance of the Seventh-Day Sabbath, which is at the heart of Yahuwah's moral law, the 10 Commandments, we no longer believe that the annual feast days are binding upon believers today. Still, though, we humbly encourage all to set time aside to commemorate the yearly feasts with solemnity and joy, and to learn from Yahuwah’s instructions concerning their observance under the Old Covenant. Doing so will surely be a blessing to you and your home, as you study the wonderful types and shadows that point to the exaltation of Messiah Yahushua as the King of Kings, the Lord of Lords, the conquering lion of the tribe of Judah, and the Lamb of Yahuwah that takes away the sins of the world.

Abraham was Very Rich and Generous

The King James Version (KJV) is mostly used in these lessons. Click here to access the KJV online.

Genesis 13:2 says that Abraham or at that time he was called Abram was very rich. It doesn't just say he was rich, it says he was very rich, in cattle, in silver and in gold. Abraham is the father of faith, he's a righteous man, he'll be in the kingdom, we'll dine at the table with Abraham. He was rich yet he was called a friend of Elohim - Isaiah 41:8, James 2:23. Abraham was generous with his wealth. One of the strongest characteristics of Abraham was that he was a generous man. He was always giving, looking out for other people and helping other people. In Genesis 13 the herdsmen of Abraham and the herdsmen of his nephew Lot were arguing about who would get what parcel of land. Abraham saw that the argument was getting heated and he gave Lot the first choice and settled for was left over.

In Genesis 14 Abraham gave a tithe to Melchizedek the priest. That tithe wasn't commanded - even if you read the codified Law of Moses. It wasn't commanded because it was on spoils of war and there are different regulations for what you give to Yahuwah from spoils of war. It was when Abraham went to war with these heathen kings that had kidnapped Lot. He rescued Lot and took spoils of war and then when Melchizedek the priest came out he gave him a tenth of everything from the spoils of war. He was a giving man.

In Genesis 21 we see possibly the greatest gift Abraham ever was willing to give to Yahuwah Who didn't let him go through with it. Abraham was willing to give his beloved son Isaac. Yahuwah said, I want you to offer Isaac up as a sacrifice to me. Abraham did not argue. Then Yahuwah produced a ram in the thicket for the sacrifice instead and Abraham named that place ‘Yahuwah will provide’.

In Genesis 18 Abraham saw three men coming to his house from a distance. He went got some water and he washed their feet. He told Sarah his wife to quickly make some bread and his servant to kill the calf and prepare a meal for the travelers. Some Bible versions say they were angels.

Hebrews 13:2 says - don't forget to show hospitality to strangers for in doing so some have entertained angels without knowing it. We’ve got to be discerning brothers and sisters. Yahuwah may be sending us an angel, seeing if we're going to help out or we're going to be stingy – if we're going to have an evil eye or we're going to have a good eye.

Abraham had a good eye - he was wealthy he was rich but he was generous. He had much silver, gold, articles of clothing, plenty of food but he did not serve money because he was willing to give it away. Riches were not his master, he served Yahuwah over money, that was shown in the giving away of wealth.
