Description: The long awaited reunion of father and son is here. Joseph finally gets to see his dad again! But surprisingly this get together is only allotted two verses.
Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Genesis and shows us that while you’d expect the reuniting of Joseph and Jacob to receive more airplay, the bulk of chapter 46 is focused on the entrance of Israel into Egypt and the fulfillment God’s promises. But we also see, how in the Almighty’s providence, this entire turn-of-events is by God’s governing over the affairs of men to bring about His purposes.
Description: But He Promised! It’s been 23 years since God brought Abram to Canaan. Where’s the land? Where are the children? Did He forget? What was God doing??? And why does He always make us wait and wait and wait?
It may seem that God is never on our time-frame. But, rest assured, He has His reasons. Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Genesis where we find out in Abraham’s case, God wasn’t dragging His feet…
He was busy making the improbable, the impossible.
… so He could reveal Himself as God Almighty, the All-Sufficient One, who can do anything and everything He has promised.
Description: Are you resting in the promises of God? Abram did.
He gave his nephew, Lot, choice of the land. His nephew looked around – and even though the people who lived there were exceedingly wicked – his choice was clear: the fertile valley. It was lush, and it pleased him.
Abram gave up his preference of the land and instead rested in the promises of God.
Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Genesis and shares with us that, oftentimes, the way of the Christian may not seem as profitable as the way of the world. Lot’s way was fertile, and the people lived in cities. Abram’s way was arid, and he lived in tents. But while one way sees the “fertile valley” and a future of possibilities, the other is the sure way. …For it sees the living God who owns the cattle on a thousand hills.
Description: The Apostle Peter, in 1 Peter 3:13-17, tells his readers that they should not fear men and any suffering they might encounter. Quoting Isaiah 8:11-13, Peter writes that they should have a reverence for Jesus and be always ready to tell others why they have hope.
