  • 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

  • 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 Elmer Towns on Apr 22, 2017

    Breaking old habits

    A. INTRODUCTION: BREAKING OLD HABITS 1. Why is it hard to teach old dogs new tricks? Because old dogs go back to old habits. “As a pig returns to it squalor” (2 Peter 2:22, ELT). Why Old Habits? • Recessive memory • Reinforces our values and attitudes • The old way worked • We don’t more

  • Regaining Trust Series

    Contributed by C. Philip Green on Jul 28, 2016

    In order to regain your integrity after it is lost, let God reveal your sin, rebuke you for it, and then restore you wholly and completely just like He did for Abraham.

    Contributed by Mark A. Barber on Feb 13, 2014

    How good a witness was Abraham to the pagans? How well do we witness?

    The Life of Abraham, Part 12: Abraham’s Witness to Abimelech Genesis 20:1-18 Introduction Last week we learned of the terrible destruction of the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah for their gross wickedness. From the destruction, the LORD graciously delivered Lot and his two daughters. The more

  • Genesis 20:1-18 Series

    Contributed by John Shearhart on Jul 24, 2013

    God saves Abraham and Sarah from Abimelech.

    Last time we saw Abraham he was watching the smoke rise from what was left of Sodom (19:28). God has called him to live as a stranger in the land of Canaan, but He’s promised to make him the father of many nations. Abraham’s waited for many years, living in tents on someone else’s more

    based on 1 rating

    We are a long ways from the days of “Leave it to Beaver” and “The Brady Bunch”! What does God have to say to the “Modern Family”?

    Modern Family Pt. 1 – Give and Get I hate to be the bearer of bad news but “Leave it to Beaver” has left, Mayberry is a distant memory, and the Waltons have said, “goodnight!” The day we live is different. The climate has changed. This modern age has impacted and more

    based on 1 rating

    Today we will talk about lying. Our goal is to go beyond the obvious instruction that we should not lie. Our goal is to learn what our lies teach us about the condition of our hearts.

    Sermon Notes May 20, 2012 FBCam “What Lies Beneath a Lie?” Genesis 20:1-18 One of the many pieces of advice we received before our wedding was to save the top tier of your wedding cake and eat and eat it on your first anniversary. We had a tiny little freezer. For one full more

  • Studies In Genesis: Chapters 20 Series

    Contributed by Edward Hardee on Oct 15, 2011

    This is a study of the book of Genesis. Genesis and Revelation are two of the most disputed books in the Bible. The premise of this study is the foundation of creation.

    Note: When doing a study on a book in the Bible you use a lot of resources. The major influence for me on this study of Genesis is The Genesis Record by Henry Morris. Genesis 20 1. And Abraham journeyed from thence toward the south country, and dwelled between Kadesh and Shur, more
