Genesis 23. Three words

Okay give me a few words to get you to read genesis 23. Wow.

Word one- tears
Word two- death
Word three- kingdom minded.

Just read it and see if you see what I do. Ask questions and I will answer them.

God and Abraham

Wow what a morning. As a stand in line at the DMV I am reading the end of Genesis 21 and started Genesis 22.

Already I can see that Genesis 22 is going to be a glimpse of who Jesus Christ is. Look at Genesis 22:1-2 and you see that God temps Abraham to offer his only son. Wait. Stop. You typed that wrong Abraham has two sons. Well the way God works is he wipes away our sins and I call it as I read it, Abraham's first son was conceived out of Gods will. Causing him to be cast out because of sin.

So we have here God asking Abraham to give up the son he had been waiting for for many years.

Again I believe that it is a picture of what had happened to Jesus. God gave his only son who he loved and raised him up so the world would see his death on the cross.

Read on. Read up. Keep the Word of God in your hearts alive.

Genesis 22 is just the start of what God is doing in the life if his people.

What's your story? Is it perfect? Is it sad? It is your story will you share it?

Leave a comment about what God has done in your life.

I can see that God is with you.

Wow it has been a few days. My wife and I went up to OR for a week and saw what God had created and set aside as a place to run into his creation. It was a great trip and I am glad to have gone and come back.

Today I read Genesis 21. There are a few things that stand out and so I am going to just say read it and ask me questions about it.

One thing Abrahams two boys are about 17 and 3 years of age.

I can't wait to hear what you have to say.
