  • Abraham: Same Lie, Different Country Series

    Contributed by Jonathan Spurlock on Jan 22, 2021

    Abraham and his household moved to another area. What happened when they met this new king looks very similar to something they had tried many years before. It didn't work in this new location, either.

    Introduction: After the events of Genesis 19, Abraham left Mamre/Hebron and journeyed southwest towards the Mediterranean Sea. He entered the land of the Philistines and settled at Gerar, between Kadesh and Shur. While there, he told the same lie about Sarah; only to a different king (compare this more

    Contributed by Jonathan Spurlock on Apr 21, 2020

He was sentenced to grind (grain?) in the prison house. Even worse, he was blind—the Philistines had put out his eyes more

  • Took Sarah

    Contributed by Bala Samson on Mar 8, 2019

    Life is tough, somehow it never turns out the way the movie pictures it, be wise and smart. The agenda of the enemy is to stop growth, multiplication and progress.

    Took Sarah…… Genesis 20:2”…..Abimelech king of Gerar sent and took Sarah.” “The enemy comes to steal, kill and destroy” (John 10:10). Life is tough, somehow it never turns out the way the movie pictures it, be wise and smart. The agenda of the enemy is to stop growth, multiplication and more

  • Just Like Us (Part Two)

    Contributed by Derrick Tuper on Feb 22, 2019

    We all make mistakes. None of us are perfect and that includes those in the bible. Those great men and women of faith did some remarkable things but they had their flaws too. Today we'll look at Abraham and Joshua and see how they are just like us.

    JUST LIKE US (part two) Recap: Last week we looked at the fact that although we all make mistakes it isn't easy to admit it. Sometimes we make the mistake of looking at celebrities in an elevated way that portrays them as larger than life and almost too perfect. Therefore we conclude that they more

  • Old Habits Are Hard To Break Series

    Contributed by David Owens on Aug 7, 2017

    In this sermon, we witness Abraham falling back into the same sinful pattern of lying and we are forced to wrestle with our own struggle against sinful habits that are hard to break.

When the nuns realized the fire was blocking the exit, they took their habits off, tied them together to make a rope, and climbed out the window. 2. After they were safely on the more

  • Embarrassing Reruns

    Contributed by John Gaston on Apr 28, 2016

    Sometimes when you've made the same dumb mistake again, you get a vague sense of déjà vu. That's what Abraham got when Abimelek rebuked him for lying about Sarah being his sister. Let's don't keep falling into the same sins!

  • Pep Talk

    Contributed by Bala Samson on Dec 14, 2015

    None in this world can pat you on your back and cheer you, coax you, urge you, push you, embolden you, support you and stir you like the way our Heavenly dad does!
