Abel Ebens Memorial Service

Part of series Life Stream 2023

We give thanks to God for the life of my father, Abel Ebens. His laughter, his energy, his honesty, his hard working attitude and respect of his parents flowed out of him like a fountain from which we have been blessed to drink.

It was a personal delight for me that my father accepted the truth of the begotten Son in 2008. In 2008 he wrote

God is love
1. 1 John 4:8
2. He loves me as His son (1 John 3:1)
3. Jer 31:3 I have loved you with an everlasting love Abel. Thank you Father.
4. Isa 43:4. You are precious in my sight and I love you Abel. I will protect you. Thank you Father. , Ps 121:8 The Lord will watch over you as long as [you] live Abel.

6. Mark 12:29. God is the only Lord
7. 1 Cor 8:4 There is no other God.
8. John 17:3 This is eternal life to know you the only true God and Jesus Christ whom You have sent
9. Isa 9:6 Jesus is called God but He is God to the glory of His Father. (Phil 2:11)
10. He is equal with God (Phil 2:6 but not co-equal)
11. He has the full nature of God (Col 1:19)
12. But God is the One Who is ultimately in charge of everything (1 Cor 15:27) and
13. Jesus will be subject to His Father as He was before He came, verse 28.
14. 1 Cor 11:3 The head of Christ is God
15. Matt 28:18 I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth. Jesus says,
16. John 5:19 Jesus does everything by the Father’s consent.
17. Luke 24:30 Jesus says “Look at my hands and my feet and feel them, a spirit does not have flesh and bones like you see my have.

As soon as you believed (trusted) that Jesus is the Son of God (not just a role player) and accepted Him as your Lord and Saviour you were given eternal life. Amen Col 1:15

He is the visible likeness of the invisible God (not God Himself)
Ex 34:6 God is merciful, forgiving iniquity and sin, will by no means clear the guilty.
1 John 5:12 Abel if you believe in the Son of God you have eternal life. And I do Lord, thank you for letting me in. John 17:1

Jesus looked up to heaven and prayed “Father the hour has come for you to honour me as your son so that I may honour you as my Father.
