The sacrifice required of Abraham in the offering up of Isaac, shows that if a man would attain to the keys of the kingdom of an endless life; he must sacrifice all things. When God offers a blessing or knowledge to a man, and he refuses to receive it, he will be damned. The Israelites prayed that God would speak to Moses and not to them; in consequence of which he cursed them with a carnal law.
Let me tell you a story from the life of Sir Isaac Newton. Among Newton's acquaintances and fellow scientists was an atheist, with whom he would sometimes debate. One morning this man paid Sir Isaac Newton a visit. When he entered Newton's study, he noted a remarkably well-made replica of the universe sitting on his desk. The model was complete with rotating planets, and Newton's associate was quite impressed by its detail and authentic nature.
"This is wonderful!" he exclaimed. "Who made it?"
'Nobody' replied Newton. His friend repeated the question and again Sir Isaac replied, "Nobody made it. It just appeared this morning by itself."
"Stop kidding me. Obviously someone made this. Someone possessed of great intelligence! I'd like to meet the person who made this."
"Where is your logic!' Newton exclaimed. 'You and your atheistic colleagues try to tell me that there
is no Supreme Being. You say that the vast and wonderfully intricate universe, of which this tiny model is but a replica, has created itself, whereas you adamantly deny the same possibility with this model! You say an intelligent person must have created this model, but you deny the Supreme Person behind the universe!"

11 But behold, I will show unto you a God of miracles, even the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob; and it is that same God who created the heavens and the earth, and all things that in them are.
