A New Series

“Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come.” 1Cor. 10:11.

Our world is in a chaotic mess. Who among you wants peace to reign in your life even when life is out of control? It can be done. I hope you will join me for the journey of a lifetime as we discover the Lord God’s plan from beginning to ending to beginning.

“All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable, for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness…God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son…We have also a more sure word of prophecy: whereunto ye do well that ye take heed…Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.” (2Tim. 3:16; Heb. 1:1,2a; 2Pet. 1:19-21).

“Not in the old testament,” challenged the freckled face youngster.

“Yes, even in the old testament,” I answered. “Every book of the Bible shows at least one truth about Jesus.”

My site, Meeting Jesus, introduces the unknowing reader to the truth of Jesus Christ, the Son of the living God. To the reader established in this truth, its purpose endeavors to encourage and challenge you in your personal relationship with Jesus Christ, Redeemer, Savior, and coming King. I hope you will join me as we walk hand in hand with Jesus, meeting Him, and the many who walked with Him, in every book as we move through this new series. The best place to start in any book is the beginning. It introduces the main characters and lays the foundation for the rest of the book. So, that’s where we begin.

GENESIS: THE BOOK REVIEW

Authored through the inspiration of God and believed to be spoken to Moses, His servant, Genesis answers the oldest questions of mankind: How did all this come to be and where did we come from?

“In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth…And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness…So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him: male and female created he them.” Gen. 1:1, 26-27.

Genesis consists mainly as a book of beginnings; the beginning of time, earth, man, sin, war, a revealed plan for victory, and a nation. But another facet exists within these pages not often looked at, the fellowship of the Lord with man, man walking with His God.

“And they heard the voice of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God amongst the trees of the garden.” Gen. 3:8.

Before this fateful day, the Lord freely walked with Adam and Eve speaking with them. We have to imagine what that was like as the Bible doesn’t tell us. But this time, exposed by sin, they hid from God.

As Genesis unfolds, the Lord introduces others who walked with Him and weren’t defeated by sin, but received the blessing of the Lord.

“And Enoch walked with God: and he was not: for God took him… Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations, and Noah walked with God… he{Jacob} blessed Joseph, and said, God, before whom my fathers Abraham and Isaac did walk,” (Gen. 5:24; 6:9; 48:15,16).

Genesis is the account of the beginning of God’s pursuit of a people to call His own and to love throughout eternity. The men and women filling its pages know sin and forgiveness, doubt and faith, death and life. They knew what it meant to walk with God and to be separated from Him. Their story continues in us today.

How does your life story read?  Are you walking with God or against Him? What can you do to walk closer to Him?

Throughout the week I plan to delve into some of the characters of Genesis, some who walked with God, others not so close and ending with Jesus who was from the beginning. Won’t you walk with me as we discover life walking with God?

I need your help to make this series relevant to you and your walk with the Lord. Would you  leave in comments some characters from Exodus you would like explored next week as we travel through the ages? What fascinates you about the choice of character, or what question would like answered about him/her? Thanks for your help.

    1. Love these questions. These are my answers because I love the questions so much, great discussion. I think why not. It would be easy for God to use a man who had no issues. But Moses is perfect. He got angry. He had a stutter. He was not bound to slavery, like his brother. God used Moses for His glory. Moses was humble/ and afraid of his weakness. God uses our weaknesses for His strength. God had him picked from the very start, just like He picked each one of us. Our flaws and our weaknesses, He is sufficient enough to guide us through. Whether giving us someone to help us or helping us find our voice in other ways.

      1. Thank you for your thoughts. And please accept my apology. I was replying to your first comment about Moses’ mother and Pharoah and somehow inadvertently sent it to trash. I’m thinking I may do one day on the antagonists of Exodus, which includes Pharoah, and I have a couple others in mind. I tried to undo my mistake but couldn’t figure it out. So again I apologize. I do appreciate your comments. Thank you.

  1. Nice! I love this series already. Crusty the Christian already said everything I would’ve like to post about Moses so I look forward to it.
