Genesis 12:1-3 (Part 3)

At the end of Genesis 12:2 Abraham is commanded to be a blessing. This marks a shift in the promises of God to Abraham. They are now focused on others. Abraham receives blessings from God that he might bless others. It is through the blessings given to Abraham that the entire world would be saved as in him all the nations of the earth are blessed. Those who bless Abraham throughout the world are blessed and those who curse him…

Revelation 2:12-17

In the letter to Pergamum Christ warns of false teachers who promote idolatry and sexual immorality.

As the culture becomes more antithetical to the faith, we must be aware of both attacks from the devil.

Genesis 12:1-3 (Part 2)

In Genesis 12:1-3 Abraham receives great blessings from the Lord that fall into two parts. The first part deals with the blessings Abraham himself would receive. These include being made into a great nation, being blessed, and being given a great name. The gospel is contained in these blessings with Jesus Christ himself being given the highest name of all.

Revelation 2:8-11

The church at Smyrna was faithful. As with Philadelphia there is nothing bad said about it. They are, however, about to undergo great persecution. It is only through much suffering that we can enter into the kingdom of God. Let us not deceive ourselves but remember the path laid out before us is one where we must pick up our cross and follow Christ.

If you leave all that is dear for sake of Christ, you will receive great blessing from God as you walk in the footsteps of the faith of Abraham.
