In the bible from the old to the new testaments, 3 unique individuals are close to satisfying this quality of life, state of being or condition in their walk with the Almighty God.
These three individuals could also easily qualify by mortal standard and human judgement to be unstoppable during their lifetime.
Quickly for the sake of time, let us look at the following individuals in the bible and see what set them apart from others mentioned in the entire bible. These individuals must be people of exceptional characters and personalities.
(A) Abel - Genesis 4:1-5
God had respect unto him as a person and also for his generous gift offered as a result of his love, respect, and honor for the Living God.
My question to us this evening from Abel's life is that
(1) How much does my gifts (Offerings and Tithes) unto the Lord my God reflect my love for Him daily.
Even after he was wickedly killed by his own blood brother for doing what is right in the sight of God, it was recorded in Genesis 4:10 that his blood or biblically his eternal life still speaks better and glorious things concerning Him to the Lord. He was unstoppable and unbeatable even in his earthly death.
My second questions to us from the life of this unstoppable patriarch of faith is that,
(2) Would your life become unstoppable and blood (life) cried unto the Living God after your passage from this world?
(3) What would your blood (life) cry for? Better promises or evil consequences?
What distinguish Abel from men and women of his generation,
He loves God more than the treasures of this life.
