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

Book Of Genesis – Lesson #19

Lesson 19:  Genesis 27 & Genesis 28

Read  Genesis 27:1-22

Approximately thirty-seven years have passed since the events of the previous chapter. Isaac is now 137, his sight has failed, and he thinks he is about to die, perhaps because his brother Ishmael had died at that age (Gen. 25:17). But he will live forty-three more years.

When Isaac craved some venison from Esau, promising a blessing in return, Rebekah plotted to deceive her husband and to get the blessing for Jacob, whom she loved. Her trickery was unnecessary because God had already promised the blessing to Jacob (Gen. 25:23b). She cooked goat’s meat so that it tasted like savory venison, and put the goat’s skins on Jacob’s arms to impersonate the hairy Esau. Isaac made the mistake of trusting his feelings; the hairy arm “felt” like Esau’s. We should not trust our emotional feelings in spiritual matters. As Martin Luther observed: Continue Reading Here

Book Of Genesis – Lesson #17

Lesson 17:

Read Genesis 24:1-67 (Hold cursor over link to view text)

This is a very wonderful love story. It reveals that God is active and involved (when WE allow Him to be) with the man or woman whom you marry.

There are two institutions that God has given to the human family: one is marriage, and the other is human government (God permits man to rule himself today). These are two universal and very important institutions. When these are broken, a society will fall apart. The home is the backbone of any society—God knew that—and He established marriage, intending that it give strength and stability to society. Continue Reading Here
