    Lot sowed in the flesh and reaped trouble; Abraham sowed in faith and reaped righteousness. This study looks at how these two men reflect our choices today.

  • Confronting Mammon

    Contributed by Robert Grey on Nov 4, 2002
    based on 19 ratings
     | 3,119 views

    Mammon is a very powerful force in the world today that ties people into a financial system that prevents the people of God from effectively preaching the Gospel. The story of how Abraham tithed after rescuing Lot gives some important principles.

    Background. Abraham had two brothers, Nahor and Haran. They and their father Terah lived in Ur of the Chaldees. This city, famous for the worship of the Moon God, was located on the banks of the Euphrates near the Persian Gulf, just before the Tigris River enters into it. In Ur, the Stela of ...read more

    Abraham followed God in faith.

    Stand and greet others who are either (leave your comfort zone) three or more rows directly in front or behind them, or at the opposite side of the worship area.

    How Abraham’s trials in Egypt led him to wisdom in Canaan

    “Most lessons in life are learned the hard way.” You can be warned and taught about a danger or encouraged to do the right thing, but personal failure can be the most powerful teacher.

    Abraham and Sarah’s disbelief in God’s promise of a son.

    Have you ever made a bold prediction or set a high goal, only to have someone laugh at you and say: “you’re joking, right?” I believe the modern colloquialism used by teens today is “Yeah, right” with more than a hint of sarcasm. When Joe Namath made his fearless prediction of a ...read more

    This begins with the historical evidence from the ancient kingdom of Ebla that validates the life of Abraham and then I will look at God’s call. How He used Abram’s humanity, weakness and faith to open the door of God’s purpose.

    God’s Call Genesis 11 ends with the genealogy leading up to Abram (later Abraham). Terah took his son Abram and his wife Saria, and grandson Lot and headed toward Canaan. They did not get to Canaan, but dwelled in the city of Haran (which is probably named after Abram’s brother who died after he ...read more
