Archives for the month of: June, 2016

An auspicious recognition reserved for all believers:

“Abimelech..spoke to Abraham: ‘No matter what you do, God is on your side.'”

Genesis 21:22 MSG

“Abraham was a hundred years old when his son Isaac was born.”
 
Promise settled; on to the next issue, Ishmael. Can he still believe?
 
Genesis 21:5 MSG
Ever wonder if half-truths are an acceptable answer?
 
• God to Abimelech: “You’re as good as dead—that woman you took, she’s a married woman.
• Abimelech to Abraham: “What have you done to us?” “What you’ve done to me ought never to have been done.”
• Abraham to Abimelech: “…the truth is that she is my half-sister.”
 
Abraham’s half-truth almost got a man killed. Not cool.
 
Genesis 20:12 MSG

Not a bad idea, Abraham.

“Abraham got up early the next morning and went to the place he had so recently stood with God.”

Genesis 19:27 MSG

‘nough said.
 
“Is anything too hard for God?”
 
Genesis 18:14 MSG
Today, I get it. Welcome to So Cal—106.
 
“God appeared to Abraham..he was sitting at the entrance of his tent. It was the hottest part of the day.”
 
Genesis 18:1 MSG
No joke—it really happened that way! That’s faith.
 
“Your wife, Sarah, will have a baby, a son. Name him Isaac (Laughter). I’ll establish my covenant with him”
 
Genesis 17:19 MSG
Some things really need a change.
 
About Ishmael: “He’ll be a bucking bronco of a man, a real fighter, fighting and being fought, always stirring up trouble, always at odds with his family.”
 
Genesis 16:12 MSG
How Abram’s acted.
 
God: “Look at the sky. Count the stars. Can you do it? Count your descendants! You’re going to have a big family, Abram!”
 
Abram: “And he believed!”
 
Genesis 15:5-6 MSG
Poor life choices have a way of catching up.
 
“They captured Lot, Abram’s nephew who was living ‘in’ Sodom at the time, taking everything he owned with them.”
 
He went from living ‘near’ to living ‘in.’ How’s that whole Sodom thing working for ya, Lot?
 
Genesis 14:12 MSG
