Our Shield and Great Reward

Our Shield and Great Reward

Today I am sharing with you some insight from Henry Morris’ book The Genesis Record.  His commentary on the story that ends chapter 14 of Genesis and begins chapter 15 includes a train of thought that blew me away.  I hope you are as amazed by this as I am today. Chapter 14 ends with… Continue Reading

Lessons from Nimrod and Babel

Lessons from Nimrod and Babel

Digging deep into those four verses in Genesis 10 about Nimrod set the stage for the story of the Tower of Babel in Genesis 11.  But, so what.  What does understanding the culture and the people of those days mean for us today and how can we apply it to our lives here in 2015?… Continue Reading

Nimrod and The Tower of Babel

Nimrod and The Tower of Babel

Have you ever wondered the point of the factual list-type passages in scripture?  I always did too and usually just skimmed them over enough to say I had read them.  In Genesis 10 we find what is known as the Table of Nations and that gives us a basic introduction and understanding into how the… Continue Reading

The Gift of Peace

The Gift of Peace

I never in a million years thought the gift of peace and healing would come to me through a familiar old testament story, but as I read through the story of Joseph’s life, God touched me deep inside. All along, I have clung to the fact that God is sovereign and in control; that nothing… Continue Reading

The Foundation of Faith

The Foundation of Faith

Faith.  Everyone has it.  As we read in Hebrews 11, “faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.”  The question becomes from where does our hope and assurance come? John Whitcomb, Jr so eloquently makes this contrast about faith in his book, The Early Earth: By faith… Continue Reading

Jacob’s Journey

Jacob’s Journey

Nestled in Jacob’s journey back to Caanan is the story where Jacob prepares to meet Esau, and in this story Jacob is scared.  Maybe a better phrase is full of fear.  He had sent word to Esau that he was passing through only to find that Esau was still desiring to kill him for what… Continue Reading

Talking with God

Talking with God

In Genesis chapter 15 we are privileged to “overhear” Abram talking with God. It is in this chapter that God establishes his covenant with Abram that will essentially be for the Israelite nation and this happens after Abram rescues Lot from the King of Sodom and refuses to take any material possessions back with him… Continue Reading
