My Bible Blog: Genesis 12:4-20

Genesis 12:4-20 At age seventy-five, Abram took his wife Sarai and his nephew Lot and went into Canaan.  The Lord appeared to Abram and said,  “To your descendants I will give this land.”  With gratitude, Abram built an altar to the Lord in the same place He had appeared to him.  Abram proceeded on and built another altarContinue reading “My Bible Blog: Genesis 12:4-20”

My Bible Blog Genesis 11:10-12:3

Hundreds of years and nine generations passed from Shem (son of Noah) to Abram.  In fact, Shem was still alive and kickin’ when Abram was born, and if I did my math correctly, they were actually both alive at the same time for 110 years.   Terah came from the line of Shem.  He was the father ofContinue reading “My Bible Blog Genesis 11:10-12:3”

My Bible Blog Genesis Chp. 10-11:9

The Generations of the Sons of Noah and The Tower of Babel: The sons of Japheth and their sons settled on the shores of the Black and Caspian Seas.  Some Biblical scholars believe this is modern-day Turkey.  The sons of Ham and their sons established Babel, Nineveh, Canaan, Sodom and Gomorrah, and others.  These places did notContinue reading “My Bible Blog Genesis Chp. 10-11:9”

My Bible Blog Genesis 9:18-29

Genesis 9:18-29 The three sons of Noah were Shem, Ham, and Japheth. They were all blessed by God.  Ham apparently was the troublemaker, the black sheep of the family.  He embarrassed and humiliated his father, and in return, Noah cursed Ham’s son Canaan. Ouch.  Noah was found righteous by God, but Noah wasn’t perfect and neither was his son.  Continue reading “My Bible Blog Genesis 9:18-29”

My Bible Blog: Genesis 8:20-9:17

Genesis 8:20-9:17 The first thing that Noah did when he left the ark was build an altar to the Lord.  He took of every clean animal and offered burnt offerings to God.  The Lord smelled the soothing aroma and said that He would never again destroy every living thing.  God was faithful to Noah, and Noah was faithfulContinue reading “My Bible Blog: Genesis 8:20-9:17”

My Bible Blog Genesis 8:5-19

Genesis 8:5-19 After the great flood, the waters finally receded.  While Noah was waiting, he sent out a raven and it flew here and there.  Then he sent out a dove, but with no place for it to land, it returned to him.  He waited seven days then sent the dove out again.  It returned with a freshly pickedContinue reading “My Bible Blog Genesis 8:5-19”

My Bible Blog: Genesis 6:5-22

In Genesis 6:5-22, God revealed to Noah that He would destroy the earth because it was filled with violence.  He saw that the wickedness of man was great and that his heart was continually evil; however, God saw goodness in Noah and spared him, his family, and the animals two by two.   God told Noah toContinue reading “My Bible Blog: Genesis 6:5-22”

My Bible Blog: Genesis Chp. 6:1-13 (Tricky Tricky)

Genesis Chp. 6:1-13 (Tricky Tricky)             Genesis Chapter 6 describes wicked times in the bible and contains verses which are controversial due to the differing views of educated bible scholars.  Some bible scholars believe that the sons of God mentioned in verse 2 are actually fallen angels who, with Satan, were thrown out of Heaven.  Other bible scholars believeContinue reading “My Bible Blog: Genesis Chp. 6:1-13 (Tricky Tricky)”

My Bible Blog: Genesis 5

Genesis Chapter 5 covers the generations from Adam to Noah.   I will never forget the time my son called me and asked (without even a “Hi Mom.”), “What happened to m’ man Enoch?”   My response:  “Huh?” I soon realized he was talking about Enoch in the bible.  The bible is very brief about Enoch’s demise.  In fact, it’s soContinue reading “My Bible Blog: Genesis 5”

My Bible Blog: Genesis 4:16-26

Genesis 4: 16-26 Cain has killed his brother Abel, and God sends him out to wander the earth. Cain ends up in the land of Nod, which is east of Eden.  This verse always seems to stump people.  If Adam and Eve were the first people, and they only had two children (sons) and one was alreadyContinue reading “My Bible Blog: Genesis 4:16-26”

My Bible Blog: Genesis 4:9-15

Genesis 4:9-15 Cain has just killed his brother Abel, apparently, over petty jealousy.  In verse 9 God questions Cain, and Cain lies to God.  Can you imagine lying to God?  God asks you a question; you know God knows EVERYTHING, but you still lie to Him? What kinda sense does that make? Reminds me of my teenage years…but I digress.  Anyway,Continue reading “My Bible Blog: Genesis 4:9-15”

My Bible Blog: Genesis 4:1-8

Genesis Chp. 4:1-8 Adam “knew” his wife Eve and she gave birth to Cain.  Again she gave birth – to Abel.  Abel kept flocks of sheep, and Cain was a tiller of the ground.  Cain brought an offering to the Lord of the fruit of the ground.  Abel brought of the “firstlings” of his flockContinue reading “My Bible Blog: Genesis 4:1-8”

My Bible Blog: Genesis 3:8-24

Genesis 3:8 – 24 After Eve was deceived by the serpent, and she and Adam disobeyed God, they must have known right off that they had done something horrible.  They were afraid or feeling guilty or both, and they hid from God.  My guess is that at one time or another, we’ve all wanted toContinue reading “My Bible Blog: Genesis 3:8-24”

Genesis 2:8 –Genesis 3:7 My Bible Blog

Genesis 2:8 –Genesis 3:7 In these verses, God plants a garden toward the east in Eden and tells Adam to cultivate it.  God caused the trees to grow for food, for life, and for-bidden (the tree of the knowledge of good and evil).  There are rivers to water the garden.  He creates Eve to beContinue reading “Genesis 2:8 –Genesis 3:7 My Bible Blog”

Hello everyone out there in Cyberville. I hope your day is starting off well. Mine, with a cup of coffee and a bible in my lap (now a laptop though). My first bible blog pointed out that God had already formed the earth (which is made of dust) before the first day, leaving us toContinue reading “Genesis 1:1-Genesis 2:7 (NASB): My Bible Blog”

Genesis 1:1-2: My Bible Blog

Genesis 1:1-2 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. And the earth was formless and void, and darkness was over the surface of the deep; and the Spirit of God was moving over the surface of the waters. (NASB) I wonder how many bible readers actually notice that all of this happenedContinue reading “Genesis 1:1-2: My Bible Blog”
