Book Of Genesis – Lesson #21

Lesson 21:  Genesis 31 and Genesis 32

Read Gen. 31:1-18

After Jacob discovered that Laban and his sons were growing jealous and resentful, the Lord told him that the time had come to return to Canaan. First he called Rachel and Leah and discussed the matter, rehearsing how Laban had cheated him and changed his wages ten times, how God had overruled so that the flocks always bred in his favor, how God had reminded him of the vow he had made twenty years earlier (Gen. 28:20–22), and how the Lord had told him to return to Canaan. His wives agreed that their father had not dealt honestly and that they should leave.

There are several several interesting principles for discerning God’s guidance here. First, Jacob had a desire (Gen. 30:25). Secondly, circumstances necessitated a change of some sort. Thirdly, God’s word came strongly to him. And finally, there was confirming support from his wives, despite their natural ties to Laban.   Note that the Angel of God (Gen. 31:11) is the God of Bethel (Gen. 31:13). Continue Reading Here

So perfect was God’s timing that Rachel was just arriving with her flock when Jacob was talking with the shepherds. Continue Reading Here

Book Of Genesis – Lesson #2

Lesson 2:  Genesis Chapter 2

Things introduced in Chapter 2:

The basic cycle of time (week), and the SANCTIFYING of a day (Sabbath)

SABBATH  — the practice of observing one day in seven as a time for rest and worship. This practice originated in creation, because God created the universe in six days and rested (literally “ceased”, since God did  not suffer from physical exertion) on the seventh day (Genesis 1). By this act, God ordained a pattern for living—that people should work six days each week at subduing and ruling the creation and should spend the seventh day both resting AND honoring the Creator.  This is the understanding of the creation set forth by Moses in Exodus 20:3–11, when he wrote the Ten Commandments at God’s direction.
