God knows your every thought and can see everything that is in your heart.
Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Genesis and explains that if you are fearful about God’s ability to know everything you keep from others, you’re not alone. In our passage we’ll see that even Sarah felt this way when God rebuked her while she was laughing in her heart. But what we’ll also see is that God’s ability to see into our heart is actually part of the Gospel, part of the good news of God’s love poured out in the work of Jesus Christ.
Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for by this some have entertained angels without knowing it. (Heb 13:2)
Know therefore that the LORD your God, He is God, the faithful God, who keeps His covenant and His lovingkindness to a thousandth generation with those who love Him and keep His commandments; (Deu 7:9)
Description: Genesis Chapter 10 is often skipped over. Most of us struggle through these long and ancient genealogies. Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our Study in the book of Genesis in which he takes us through the descendants of Noah in Chapter 10… and shows us that while genealogies are often tedious to move through, God always has a purpose for what He reveals in His Word. Oftentimes to see His purpose, though, we need to view a passage through the eyes of redemptive history. And when we do this with Genesis 10, we see more than a genealogy: what we see is a picture of God’s judgment, grace, and Gospel.
Description: The last five verses of Genesis Chapter 3 give us a glimpse into the work that Christ would accomplish and a picture of substitutionary atonement. We are left with a picture of a God who is a Savior and who will bring about good in the midst of man’s sin and rescue Adam’s fallen race from their sin and misery.
Description: God placed Adam and Eve in a holy temple we call the Garden of Eden. There they would enjoy unrestricted access and fellowship with God as God covenanted with them and gave them the world. And in all of God’s creation, there was only one thing He forbid and that was the eating of a single fruit. How could Adam and Eve throw it all away? How angry God must have been by there disobedience, and yet even as God pronounced a curse upon the wayward couple, He announced His plan to rescue them.
Description: Israel fails to take the land and this sets off 350 years of rapid decline. It’s a downward spiral of depravity as things go from bad to worse. God hears the cries of His people and over and over He sends a judge to rescue them. But when the judge dies, the people fall back into idolatry and rebellion…and so the cycle continues.
The anticipation is for a judge that will rule righteously and not die. And whose righteous rule will bring a time of peace and the possession of the land. That anticipation has been met in Christ who is the only righteous king and who alone obeyed the covenant for the prospering of His people.
