    THE TEMPTATION OF TERAH Genesis 11:31-12:4 Hebrews 11:8-19 Resolutions are made and broken. Diets are begun and ended. Home improvement projects lie around our houses half completed.

     | 288 views

    Abraham' first appears in Scripture as Abram, son of Terah, born in Ur of the Chaldees. He received a message from the LORD and obeyed Him. His journey from Ur to Canaan wasn't the end of the journey!

    Introduction: One of the most important human figures in the entire Bible is Abraham. We know more of his later years than his early years, but even so, his story is fascinating. He had no written copies of the Scriptures, as far as we know, but he had faith and for him that was enough. These ...read more

    How Terah's partial obedience cost him dearly

    There is a popular saying that goes “It is better to travel hopefully than to arrive”. We often hear it quoted in various circumstances. But is it true? Is it sometimes better to arrive than to travel hopefully? Terah lived in the great city of Ur. This was a large, important and ...read more

    God calls Abraham out of paganism and leads him to the Promised Land.

    We’re working through Genesis and we’ve covered a lot of ground from creation to the fall to the flood and to the scattering of the nations. We’ve gone through nearly 2,000 years of world history in only 11 chapters, but now things slow way down as the next 39 chapters cover the ...read more

    Like Terah, we too, can find ourselves Delayed on a Parched Road and die there if we are not careful.

    Delayed on a Parched Road Introduction: There is nothing more frustrating than setting out on a trip and having car trouble.

    Contributed by Ross Cochrane on Mar 9, 2010
    based on 30 ratings
     | 4,270 views

    Some criticize him for staying in Haran saying that he fell short of the promises of God, distracted by the attraction of wealth. I don’t think he was saying, OK, HE’S DEAD! WHAT HAVE I INHERITED? But he did stay in Haran until his father died.

    Part 1 - Genesis 12:1-20 (NASB) - OK, HE’S DEAD. WHAT HAVE I INHERITED? I understand the upheaval of moving to a different city. Packing endless boxes of books, dismantling beds and throwing out all the junk we have accumulated over time - big job. Then watching a huge truck back into our ...read more

    The Call of Abraham

    Don’t be a loser Genesis 11:27 to 12:8 We tend to overlook the Old Testament – and we do so at our peril.
