  • Trusting God

    What a change we see in Abraham from Chapter 12 of Genesis to Chapter 13. In Chapter 12, Abraham (well, Abram) goes down to Egypt because of a famine. There, he becomes concerned that his life is in danger. His wife, Sarai, is attractive and he thinks if Pharaoh knows that they are married, Pharaoh will kill Abram and take Sarai. He gets Sarai to hide the fact they are married, from Pharaoh.

    It is pretty amazing that Abram was so weak in faith, he was willing to allow his wife to be in Pharaoh’s bed. In fact, he got rich from it. Pharaoh thought that they were just brother and sister, so not only did he not kill Abram, but he blessed him with “sheep and cattle, male and female donkeys, male and female servants, and camels.” (Gen. 12:16)

    Yet God’s hand was on Abram. Even in weakness, the Lord protects them both. A plague came on Pharaoh’s house because he had taken another man’s wife. He sends Abram away with his wife and all the goodies he received.

    I always found that part a little strange. Probably because of todays environment. One would think if it was his sister, then she is fair game. Apparently, they liked to kill and take the wife, back in that day.

    Don't panic! Just be Rapture Ready.

    Joel 3:2

    I will gather all nations and bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat. There I will put them on trial for what they did to my inheritance, my people Israel, because they scattered my people among the nations and divided up my land.
