My Bible Blog Genesis 17

       In chapter 17, Abram is 99 years old. God tells him to “walk before Me and be blameless,” and establishes a covenant with him—that He would multiply him exceedingly. Abram didn’t say, Yeah, yeah. I’ve heard it all before. No. Abram fell on his face before God, and never lost faith that God would carry through withContinue reading “My Bible Blog Genesis 17”

Revelation 2:12-17

The beginning of Revelation consists of letters written to the seven churches. After these letters, begin the prophecies of the end times. It’s almost as if Jesus is writing us these letters to give us one last chance before the tribulation takes place.  Though these letters were written to the churches of long ago, they sureContinue reading “Revelation 2:12-17”

My Bible Blog Genesis 13 and 14

In Genesis 13 & 14, Abram left Egypt, taking his wife, his nephew Lot, and all of their livestock, silver, and gold.  He went back to the place where he had built an altar then called on the name of the Lord.  Lot also had livestock, so much so, that the land could not sustain them both,Continue reading “My Bible Blog Genesis 13 and 14”

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”

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”

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”

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”
