We’ve reached the end of the book of Genesis, and it ends with death…
…the death of Jacob and Joseph. It’s a stark reminder that the curse of Genesis chapter 3 is still upon mankind, even those called by God.
Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao concludes our study in the book of Genesis and shows us that though it ends with the reminder of the curse, it also ends, like Genesis 3, with hope as well… Hope that the promises of God will one day be fulfilled, and that this dreadful curse will ultimately be destroyed at the consummation of Christ’s kingdom.
Description: As we come to the last pages of the book of Genesis, we see Jacob – the father of Reuben, Simeon, Levi, Judah, Dan, Naphtali, Gad, Asher, Issachar, Zebulun, Joseph, and Benjamin – performing his last great act as Patriarch, blessing his sons.
Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao shows us how in this fatherly act of Jacob for all his sons, we also see a blessing for all mankind… a promise of a King who will one day come and vanquish all of our enemies and create a safe land of prosperity and godly rule.
Description: Christians are called to be discerning. We are called to be able to discern truth from error and to take every thought captive to the Word of God. In our passage this morning, John gives the Christian the foremost test concerning all matters of life and doctrine. It is a test that can be seen as a question; a question that becomes for the Christian a dividing line. Christians have died answering this question for it is indeed, the only question that matters!
Description: John recounts the beginning of Jesus’ public ministry when He attends the Passover at the Temple in Jerusalem. What He finds ignites His righteous anger and His zeal for the House of God is revealed in His actions.
Description: Jesus is calling His first followers; those with whom He would spend three years, teaching them all they needed so to know God. They would be the authority to be the foundation that Christ used to form the Church to worship Him and proclaim the new age of the Kingdom of God.
Description: Jesus is calling His first followers; those with whom He would spend three years, teaching them all they needed so to know God. They would be the authority to be the foundation that Christ used to form the Church to worship Him and proclaim the new age of the Kingdom of God. Jesus transformed their lives from fisher-men to fishers-of-men, from the rough and dirty to the pure of heart with a bold purpose and mission. They would be transformed by grace and be the bearers of grace and the prime instruments by whom others would be transformed too.
