FATHER ABRAHAM- THE GOSPEL

I hope that you have had a chance to read Genesis 12-20:18 as it will help you to follow more easily on the night we have our Women’s Bible Study Zoom meeting on Monday, 30 November at 7:30pm. Watch this space for details on this site and on Facebook’s Captivated.

This is certainly a big stretch of scripture! The story of Abraham’s life follows the basic order of events as they occurred in his life. The stories begin with him relatively young and under the authority of his father, until his father’s death. The story of Abraham reports events in his life and teaches specific lessons. Moses is commonly accepted as the author of Genesis. And Moses’ original audience are the Israelites (approx 450 years between Abraham and Moses’ births to give you an idea of time). As Moses led the Israelites from Egypt toward the Promised Land, the scriptures had much to teach them as they lived their lives—– just as it has much to teach us as we live our lives today. Sisters, there are years and years to glean from these ancient words.

I encourage you to persevere; to know that we don’t have to understand it all completely in one or two gos, but to reiterate one of the aims of this year’s study— that we will increasingly understand the flow and melodic line of God in His Word, and to grasp the Great I AM, and his plan to rescue us, pointing us to Christ.

There are layers upon layers of foreshadowing through God’s people to Christ. So through this process this year, my prayer is that this will be revealed to us so that will know God better and love Him more.

Even through this uncertainty of these Covid times, I look forward to hearing how our relationships with each other and our Lord God are growing deeper, richer, clearer, and joy-filled as we study the revelation of Him through His word! May His purposes be fulfilled in and through us and we learn to trust Him more!

Lots of love,

FATHER ABRAHAM

In this study we meet Abram(Abraham); a man of faith but also marked with repeated failures. This study will consider God’s call to Abram. This sets the stage for Abram’s descendants-the origins of the nation of Israel. We will also consider how our patient God deals with Abram’s failures and his messy, dysfunctional family to redeem humanity in His chosen way! (Keep in mind while you study: Who is God? Who are we? Where is Christ in all of this?)

You still have lots of time to get with your study buddy by phone, zoom, Whatsapp, or your favourite way to connect. You are in for a feast with Abraham, so don’t miss meeting with your friend.

Our zoom meeting will be on 30 November at 7:30pm. Watch this space and FB Captivated for information as it becomes available.

We are praying for you and cheering you on as we stand shoulder to shoulder through this lockdown,
