There are quite a few questions today.  We had a lot to cover and there are so many aspects of these particular Scriptures that need to not go unnoticed.  Many times, we tend to skim over certain details as we are reading and, as a result, we miss out on some important insights and truths.

  3. What promise was given to Hagar?

Day 2 – November 3, 2016

Today's Scripture:

Genesis 5:1 - 6:22

Questions to consider from today's reading:

  1. What do you think the author's purpose was for listing the genealogies?
  2. Who do you think the "Sons of God" and the "Nephilim" are? (See also Numbers 13:33)
  3. What brought you to your conclusions?

Observation:

Notice God's attention to detail in His instructions to Noah.  We truly have a God who is sovereign in all things, even down to the tiniest details.  He knows better than we do about what will keep us safe and out of harms way.  Noah's story would have had a very different outcome had he not heeded the words of God.

Day 1 – November 2, 2016

Introduction to Genesis:

The very foundation of our faith lies in the opening verse in Genesis.  “In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.”  The authority in which Scripture states this indicates that there is no sitting on the fence between belief and unbelief.  Just as Jesus clearly stated that He is the Son of God, this verse shows us the power and majesty of His father.    Either Jesus was a good man who was also telling the truth about who He is OR what he claimed was a fallacy and He could no longer be viewed as a great man.  We put our complete faith in Jesus Christ for our salvation.  Genesis lays the groundwork for every essential doctrine that we believe and WHY we put our faith in Jesus and our loving Creator who sent Him.

Today's Scripture:

Genesis 1:1 - 4:26
