Genesis (Program #77) – Having Natural Weakness as Abraham and Living in the Natural Life as Jacob

Today’s life study is going to deal very much with natural life and the weaknesses of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.

When we reconsider these Old Testament “heroes”, we don’t think of their weaknesses.  However, through these life studies we have come to see the real situation.  We have often heard of Abraham as the father of faith.  We have seen how he believed that God was able to call things not being as being, as in the case of the birth of Isaac.  And also believing in God being able to raise Isaac from the dead, after he offered him on Mount Moriah.  And we usually consider everything about Abraham happening to him because he was a good, God-fearing man, strong in the faith.  But if you have being following these life studies of Genesis, you found out that Abraham learned many lessons by his weaknesses and even his naturalness in the way he did things, the way he tried to help God and tried to enter into a clever solution to certain problems that came up as in the case of the birth of Ishmael and in his trying to have Eliezer to be in the place of his son.  These kind of things show that Abraham wasn’t that perfect.  He had some weakness that he acted in a natural way and he did things according to his natural cleverness…

Genesis (Program #76) – Resting and Enjoying

We have more marvelous pictures from the experience of Isaac.   Pictures is appropriate because anyone who has followed these life studies, I am sure has being able to see one picture after another.  And it’s amazing that the Old Testament book of Genesis that we have been in has been so much help to us with our New Testament experience of life.  What is the relationship between the Old and New Testament in the divine revelation?

Genesis (Program #75) – Inheriting Grace

Our life study today in Genesis brings us to somewhat of a transition.  Of course, we have been dealing for many many programs now with Abraham.  Today we begin to look at Abraham’s son Isaac.  Before we get to that I wonder in several places in Scriptures, God is referred to as the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.  What is the significance of this particular title and what is it implied?

Genesis (Program #72) – The Marriage of Isaac – A Practical Living in Oneness with the Lord

With the casual reading, Genesis appears to be a book of creation with some stories of some of the great men of the Old Testament.  But I think during the course of these life study programs we have seen much much more.

The real focus of the book of Genesis is showing God of purpose carrying out His economy for His purpose with mankind.  God is not a God of remedy for mistakes but He is a God of purpose to carry out what He intended from the earliest time.

In our message today, we come to the birth and growth of Isaac, the seed that God promised both to Abraham and to Sarah.  This was a great thing for both of them.  We are going to see that actually there were three potential seeds.   Who are these three and briefly what did each of them signify?
