Today I was reading in Genesis 12 and Abram went down into Egypt. And Jon talked about how everytime we see people Go into egypt it is always down. In the Bible Egypt is a picture of the world. Now the father of faith was heading to the promise land and heard that a famine was coming. What does he do he take things into his own hands and goes into the world.
Where are you right now are you heading to the land God has called you to. Or are you heading to the world.
May the God of our fathers bless you while you answer that.
Need I say more. Genesis 6:8-10. Noah found Grace in the eyes of the lord. Not that Noah was the only one that God showed his grace to. It was the fact every one had 120 years(Genesis6:3) and Noah was the only one who found it.
Look at other religions and philosophies and you have to work or do good deeds in order to earn blessings or find favor from their gods. But with Biblical Christianity grace is given to those who call on the name of the Lord. Wow. Grace
Where are you today? Have you found Grace? I have and it is yours to have just call out to Jesus and ask him to be your Lord and savior from your sins.
As I was reading today I was kinda hit in the face with this statement. I know I have heard that God lives out side of time but our day is one thousand years and one thousands years is one day. God told Adam in Genesis 2:17 that if he was to eat from the tree that he would surly die. Now lets look at what happened.
That day Adam hid from God and was moved out of the garden. Then his life moves on and on Adam has kids, he grows old until Adam is nine hundred and thirty years old and he dies. I think I missed this every time I have read it.
Adam Dies. Okay I knew that part. But what I did not grab was that Adam dies the same day that he ate of the fruit according to God's time. Can you say Wow.
Also in today's reading we see that Adam before he dies has a son who brings the family back to God named Seth.
Seth means appointed.
Seth has a son named Enos.
Enos Means subject to death.
Enos has a son named Cainan which means sorrowful.
Today is a good day to know this. I now understand that Jesus will return in his timing. Think back to when Jesus was here and he said Only the father know when I will return. Well Jesus has only been gone about two maybe three days. No one will know the time or place of his return. I am waiting in exception for that day, Are you?
