How To Have The Unwavering Faith Of Abraham by Jesse Hendley

HOW TO HAVE THE UNWAVERING FAITH OF ABRAHAM
Jesse M. Hendley
Romans 4:20

Now, friends, if you have your Bibles, turn with me,
please to the fourth chapter of the Epistle to the
Romans, and we are studying today, HOW TO HAVE THE
SAME, UNWAVERING FAITH OF ABRAHAM, how to have the
same, saving, unwavering faith that Abraham had, faith
in God which Abraham had. We read the amazing
statement in verse 20 that "Abraham staggered not at
the promise of God through unbelief." He staggered

also with the Sadducees came and tempting desired Him
that He would show them a sign from heaven. He
answered and said unto them, When it is evening, ye

the morning it will be foul weather today, for the sky
is red and lowering. 0 ye hypocrites, ye can DISCERN
the face of the sky, but can ye not DISCERN the signs
of the times?" They could read the physical sky and
DISCRIMINATE and tell what was coming tomorrow, be
able to see all the whole material, look it over, and
pick out what was true and stick to that and make a
prediction. So many people are NOT that way
