Does "Begat" Mean Skip Ahead?

Word of the Day

If you are like me when you run into a chapter that has genealogies you might have a temptation to skip ahead or at least skim through (I would NEVER do that, can you smell the sarcasm). Well Genesis chapter 5 has all the descendants of Adam down to Noah. Now I will confess I was doing a little bit of skimming until I got to the last verse, 32 Noah was five hundred years ...

The Man and His Wife Were Both Naked and Felt... Shame?

Word of the Day

Well I first must confess that I am not on the same reading plan as the rest of our church is on, so I do apologize that these posts probably won't be from the same passages you are in. This morning God used Genesis 3:7 to convict me of some specific "guilt" and remind me that in Him there is no condemnation. (Romans 8:1) Genesis 3:7-87 Then the eyes of both of them were...

Show Me the Pattern

Pray

When Moses was receiving the instructions for building the tabernacle they were very detailed as to the measurements, layout, materials etc. Envious of Moses, I was wishing that the Lord would give me such clear direction in my life. Then I read this verse: Exactly as I show you concerning the pattern of the tabernacle, and of all its furniture, so you shall make it.Exodu...

Getting Seized By the Hand

Walk with Jesus

A couple weeks ago something happened to Val and I that was significantly difficult. We were put into a situation where we needed to make a decision about something that seemed impossible. After I came home from work and we discussed things, the weight of our discussion was upon me like a heavy blanket that I couldn't deal with. It was so heavy that I couldn't wait until t...

Word of the Day: Genesis 23, 24 Matthew 7

Word of the Day

Genesis 23, 24 Matthew 7 I was finishing my quite time this morning moving a head in the daily reading so when you read the blog it would be where the daily reading is that we are going through as a church body and not a day behind. I received a message to call my dad which at that time of day is unusual unless something is wrong. My dad informed me that Becky my sister ...

Word of the Day: Genesis 20, 21, 22 Matthew 6:19-34

Word of the Day

Genesis 20, 21, 22 Matthew 6:19-34 Can you imagine being promised to be the father of a great nation through your wife in an old age. Then to see this promised fulfilled by the birth of a son but then be asked to sacrifice your only son. Why? Was this son now an idol and more important than the Lord? Was this incredible faith knowing God had bigger plans than what we huma...

Word of the Day: Genesis 18, 19 Matthew 6:1-18

Word of the Day

Genesis 18, 19 Matthew 6:1-18 Is anything if possible for God? I know the answer to that question. Do I live life consistent to that answer when faced with difficult situations. I would like to say yes but being honest I struggle with it just as Abraham and Sarah did with the promise they have been hearing for years. God is faithful and is going to bring us to that realit...

Word of the Day: Genesis 16, 17 Matthew 5:27-48

Word of the Day

Genesis 16, 17 Matthew 5:27-48 It is so easy to read and wonder what were people thinking. God had just promised Abram a child and that he would be blessed and be the father of many. Then we see how Abram an Sarai take matters into their own hands. Then I reflect back and see how I take matters into my own hands without even praying. I forget the promise just as quick as ...

Word of the Day: Genesis 13, 14, 15 Matthew 5:1-26

Word of the Day

Genesis 13, 14, 15 Matthew 5:1-26 Abram understood where his blessing came from. Abram's righteousness came from believing in God's promises. His worship of God was evident as he built altars and sacrificed to the Lord. People knew God was with Abram. In Matthew 5 we see Jesus giving the sermons or beatitudes. Can people see that I am a true follower of Christ? Do I get p...

Word of the Day: Genesis 10, 11, 12 Matthew 4

Word of the Day

Genesis 10, 11, 12 Matthew 4 Genesis we are now introduced to Abram. Here we see his obedience to the Lord when called to leave his home and family. Then in Matthew we see Jesus being led by the Spirit to the wilderness where He will fast for forty days and nights then be tempted by Satan. Later in the chapter we see the calling of the Disciples. The Disciples immediately...

Word of the Day: Genesis 7, 8, 9 Matthew 3

Word of the Day

Genesis 7, 8, 9 Matthew 3 We just read about the flood. I often wonder when I am in this part of Scripture why God did not just start all over. Why did He save Noah? We see that Noah was considered to be righteous before the Lord. His faith is remarkable in the fact God told him to build a ark and he does. There is only one way into the ark and God shuts Noah and his fami...

Word of the Day

Genesis 4, 5, 6, & Matthew 2 Cain an Able present offerings to the Lord. I have not seen any instructions on what the offering is suppose to be but we see that the Lord was pleased with Abel's offering and not Cain's. Then we we see Cain's countenance change. The Lord then visits with Cain about the sin that is crouching at his door. God has just given Cain away out o...

Word of the Day

Genesis 1,2,3 & Matthew 1 As we start a new year I will be joining the rest of wvBc in the reading plan announced on Sunday of reading the Bible through in the year. I like the fact we start in Genesis for a new start to the year. We start a new year with the book known as the origin or beginning. Chapter 1 has the creation account. As I was sitting eating breakfast w...

Is Fiction Stranger Than Truth, Or?

Walk with Jesus

Among those that belong to Him I will assume that we can agree that there is nothing that God cannot do! He can raise people from the dead, He can send a great fish to secure a Prophet, He can rain down fire, send various plagues; flood the entire world, etc… If the co-authors of the New Testament (breathed by God, written by man, with the human authors personality...

Reading: Genesis 13:1-13 'Stop the Strife' "So Abram said to Lot, "Please let there be no strife between you and me,Nor between my herdsmen and your herdsmen, for we are brothers." (Gen 13:8) The magnanimity of Abram was clearly evident when strife became apparent among family members. The moment of decision took place near Bethel where he had built an altar and first c...

Then let us see what will become of his d...

Reading: Genesis 3 'Eyes Wide Open' "For God knows that in the day you eat from it your eyes will be opened and you will be like God, knowing good and evil." When the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was a delight to the eyes, and that the tree was desirable to make one wise, she took from its fruit and ate; and she gave also to her husband with her...
