We're a Bible believing Church meeting at Barncroft Primary School, Havant, Hampshire, UK Simply teaching the Bible, simply Barry Forder Barry Forder pastor@calvaryportsmouth.co.uk clean GENESIS 50 Pastor Barry Forder This teaching is our 36th and final session in our verse-by-verse study of the Book of Genesis by pastor Barry – given as part of our family service on 28th January 2018.

At the close of this study, we briefly look at the panorama of history, from the wonder of God’s original creation to the time when God’s walk with man will be restored inRevelation 21-22.

All that we have seen, as we have journeyed through this book, has been the introduction to God’s amazing plan of Salvation that came from the heart of God before time began.

This book begins in Divine glory, as the Godhead create the heavens and the earth, but ends in a coffin in Egypt – the result of sin and the curse.

The important lesson we learn from this chapter is that we, like Jacob and Joseph are just sojourning in a strange land. Egypt was not their home and they knew that one day God would deliver them and taken them back to their land. We too, are just sojourning here. This world is not our home, our citizenship is in heaven (Phil 3:20).

I will hold on to the hand of my Savior And I will hold on with all my might I will hold loosely to things that are fleeting And hold on to Jesus, I will hold on to Jesus for life

GENESIS 48-49 Pastor Barry Forder This teaching is our 35th session in our verse-by-verse study of the Book of Genesis by pastor Barry – given as part of our family service on 21st January 2018.

In this study, we look at the prophecy and final blessings Jacob pronounces over his sons before his death.

It is important to note that the blessings pronounced on them are dependant on how they have lived their lives. Judah, for example, defiled his father by sleeping with Bilhah – Rachel’s handmaid and Jacob’s third wife. As a result, he lost out on the blessings of inheritance that should have gone to the firstborn.

For Christians also, we will have a day when we will stand before the Bema Seat of Christ (see 2 Cor 5: 10) and be rewarded depending on how we have lived as Christians (See also 1 Cor 3:11-15). This has nothing to do with our salvation, but everything to do with our eternal rewards and the positions we will be given in Christ’s millennial kingdom.

Do we live for the temporary pleasures of this world? Or are we putting our treasures in heaven, looking for what will be in the ages to come?

GENESIS 46-47 Pastor Barry Forder This verse by verse teaching on Genesis chapters 46-47 was given by pastor Barry Forder and was recorded at our family service on 14th January 2018.

These chapters see Jacob move the family down to Egypt to escape the famine in the land of Canaan. It had been in a time of famine that Abraham had gone down to Egypt many years before – a move that ended up costing him dearly. God had specifically warned Isaac not to go down to Egypt, so it is no surprise to find Jacob somewhat apprehensive at the prospect of leaving the land he had been promised. However, God assures Jacob that He will be with him and that in Egypt his family will become a nation.

God sometimes allows us to go through situations that seem a million miles away from His promises for us, but God is always faithful and knows the plans He has for us, to bless us and prosper us if we walk in obedience with Him. Faith is trusting God in the trying circumstances, holding on to His promise that all things work together for good for those who love Him.

In this study, we look at the faithfulness of Joseph when faced with temptation, and consider what a great witness Joseph was in the workplace! Joseph’s obedience serves as a great role model for us all.

GENESIS 38 Pastor Barry Forder This teaching is our 31st session in our verse-by-verse study of the Book of Genesis by pastor Barry – given as part of our family service on 5th  November 2017.

In the previous, session we noted how Satan had engineered a genetic problem with the potential to wipe out humanity (as recorded in Genesis ch6). Satan’s intention was to stop the Seed of the Woman (the Messiah) from being born, thus condemning mankind to an eternity separated from God. It was this that led to the Flood as God cleansed the world from this evil menace. However after the flood, Satan tried again (Gen 6:4), this time focussing on the land of Canaan – the very land that God had promised to Abraham as his permanent possession. It was because of this that God had called Abraham and his descendants to remain completely separate from the people inhabiting Canaan.

However, in Genesis 38 we see Judah, as a young 20 yr old, falling for that same old lie… “has God really said?”. “Does it really matter?” “Is it really that important?”. Judah then goes and takes a Canaanite wife and has three sons with her.

How many people – even Christians – fall for the same lie continually?

YES IT DOES MATTER! The details ARE important. You cannot pick and chose which parts of God’s WORD you take! You are fallible, God is not. God’s ways and thoughts are higher than yours! You do not know enough about the eternal consequences of your actions to simply ignore even the smallest detail in God’s Word!

But because God is a God of grace, He steps into the situation and Judah’s ‘corrupted’ offspring are taken out of the way.

Judah (inadvertently) then ends up having a child with his daughter-in-law, also a descendant of Shem (of the same uncorrupted family line that came down to Abraham).

Their son, Pharez, although born out of wedlock, becomes the subject of a remarkable prophecy found in the book of Ruth, which points to David as God’s choice as king of Israel, and as we know, it will later be one of David’s descendants who will not only sit on his throne, but wil be the Messiah and Saviour of the World!

…and to think, all of this hinges on the events of Genesis 38!

Just as Isaiah records:  “When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the LORD shall lift up a standard against him”. (Isaiah 59:19)

GENESIS 36-37 Pastor Barry Forder This teaching is our 30th session in our verse-by-verse study of the Book of Genesis by pastor Barry – given as part of our family service on 29th  October 2017.

Critics of the Old Testament will often point to the ‘genocide’ (as they see it) that God apparently condones. Chapter 36 of Genesis serves as a reminder that God’s blessings come, not from embracing and intermarrying with the world and its systems, but by remaining separate from them! Unlike his brother Jacob, Esau didn’t see the need to remain ‘set-apart’, he didn’t see the danger – at least at first! He happily takes two Canaanite wives (which were a grief of mind to Isaac and Rebecca – Gen 26:35), and a third wife, the daughter of Ishmael.

But chapter 36 focuses on Esau’s children, and the families he (and his sons) had married in to.

The inhabitants of Mt Seir (aka Edom) were not your average neighbours! They were the descendants of the Nephilim that we read about in Genesis 6:

“And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them, That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose. And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years. There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown”. (Gen 6:1-4).

What the critics (and sadly many Christians) simply don’t get is that there was a genetic problem with the potential to wipe out humanity, and at the very least, stop the Seed of the Woman from being born (that, of course, was Satan’s real intention in all of this!). This is the reason our God, who is a God of Love, sent  the flood; and this is the reason Israel destroyed these giant tribes in Canaan, and after what must have been a brief honeymoon period, Esau set about destroying the very people he had unwittingly married into, by now, surely beginning to realise the danger they posed!

Deuteronomy chapter 2 states: “The Emims dwelt therein in times past, a people great, andmany, and tall, as the Anakims; Which also were accounted giants, as the Anakims; but the Moabites call them Emims. The Horims also dwelt in Seir beforetime; but the children of Esau succeeded them, when they had destroyed them from before them, and dwelt in their stead; as Israel did unto the land of his possession, which the LORD gave unto them”. (Deut 2:10-12).

GENESIS 34-35 Pastor Barry Forder One reason we know the Bible is true is that it never just seeks to flatter its heroes. No attempt is made to gloss over their imperfections and mistakes; in fact, the opposite is true! The Bibles gives it ‘warts and all’ We see this in the life of Jacob, on one hand, the great patriarch of the nation, on the other, a scheming, conniving man who struggled to keep his house in order.

In Genesis 34 we are given the sad account of Jacob’s daughter Dinah’s flirtation with the world. It started off as simple curiosity, maybe with so many brothers in the house, Dinah wanted some female company for a change! But when we are not content with our circumstances, when we think the lot we have been given isn’t enough, or that it won’t satisfy, we leave ourselves open to temptation.

The tribe of Dan in the book of Judges were not content with the land – the boundaries God had set for them. Instead, they took a piece of land right at the top of Israel, but because of this they fell into idolatry through the influence of the surrounding nations. When we're not content with the boundaries God sets for us, it will inevitably lead to compromise and idolatry.

We see in Psalm 1, Dinah started off by just ‘walking’ past, then find’s herself ‘standing’ and observing. Soon she is found ‘sitting in the seat of the scornful’. That is not to say for a moment she deserved what happened, Shechem’s treatment of her was despicable! But if she had just realised – as so many young people need to know today – that the bright lights of the city do not bring the love and acceptance people crave. There will be a city, one day, whose Bright light we will be drawn to – when Christ is The Light in the New Jerusalem – but until then we need to understand that ‘all our fresh springs are in Christ’. All that we are looking for and longing for is found only in Christ. Never in this world.

Dinah ends up staying in Shechem, as many do, mistaking lust for love.

Jacob could have acted, he didn’t. There are important parenting lessons to be gleaned here! But that is not the end of the story:

“Then Jacob said unto his household, and to all that were with him, Put away the strange gods that are among you, and be clean, and change your garments: And let us arise, and go up to Bethel; and I will make there an altar unto God, who answered me in the day of my distress, and was with me in the way which I went. And they gave unto Jacob all the strange gods which were in their hand, and all their earrings which were in their ears; and Jacob hid them under the oak which was by Shechem.” (Gen 35:2-4)

We may have failed, we may have not done what we should, we might have been a little too attracted to the world, but the LORD is gracious, and if we are willing to humble ourselves under the mighty hand of God (1 Peter 5:6), if we are willing to confess our sin (1 John1:8-9) – the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes and the pride of life (1 John 2:16) – we can pack up, bury our false gods at the foot of Calvary’s Tree, and make the short journey to Bethel – the House of God.

GENESIS 32-33 Pastor Barry Forder This teaching is our 28th session in our verse-by-verse study of the Book of Genesis by pastor Barry – given as part of our family service on 15th October 2017.

In 2 Corinthians 5:7 Paul reminds us that, as believers, we should walk by faith, not by sight.

If we walk by sight we begin to reckon with the actual problems of life as we perceive them. The enormity of the challenges facing us can be overwhelming and we can even start to blame God for allowing the circumstances in the first place. Most of the world exists on this level, and life spirals down into just trying to make it through the day.

For the Christian however, we are told that we are citizens of Heaven and that we are seated –above the storm – in the heavenly places with Christ.

Have you ever been on an aeroplane? There may be a storm or dark clouds on the ground, but when you soar up above the clouds, the Sun is still shining and the world seems so very different! That should be the experience of each believer.

In Genesis 32-33 we see a great lesson in the simplicity of trusting God and walking by faith in stark contrast to the emotional turmoil we put ourselves in when recon on things without God.

Jacob had left Laban and there was now no way back. The line had been drawn and that chapter of Jacob’s life was most definitely at an end!

But he was afraid to go forward, despite God’s promises and assurances, because he now faced the wrath of his brother Esau whom he had not seen for 20 years. His mum, Rebekka, had promised to send word when Esau’s wrath had abated, but no word had come.

Jacob sought for a way to buy grace, but nothing could seemingly take away the deep fear and apprehension he felt!

But God had already given Jacob the assurance he needed, and reminded him that there is an unseen world around us, ordained of God to care for us. “Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?” (Hebrews 1:14)

When Jacob finally met Esau there was no wrath, just tears of reconciliation. God had gone ahead of Jacob and softened Esau’s heart. All of the stress Jacob had brought upon himself and his family was proven to be unwarranted.

GENESIS 31 Pastor Barry Forder This teaching is our 27th session in our verse-by-verse study of the Book of Genesis by pastor Barry – given as part of our family service on 8th September 2017.

In Genesis 31 we see Jacob begin his journey back to the promised land after 20 years with Laban. The catalyst was the attitude of Laban’s sons who were starting to blame Jacob for stealing from their father Laban. The problem wasn’t that Jacob stole; it was that Laban’s sons were filled with envy. Envy will distort the truth. Jacob had not taken anything of Laban’s, but it seems from the text that Laban also started to believe this lie, and Jacob quickly realised he had outstayed his welcome in Haran!

It would have been easy to panic or blame God in a situation like this, where everything seemed against him, but Jacob goes to God who confirms that He was in this situation. It was now time for Jacob to go back to the land of promise. God had prepared him for this time. First, God gave him the desire to go back home, then the circumstances became unbearable, and finally, the Lord gave personal direction to Jacob. God leads each of us in ways that, at the time, might seem haphazard, but we later look back and realise that God had been engineering the circumstances all the time.

Oswald Chambers says: “It is only the loyal soul who believes that God engineers circumstances. We take such liberties with our circumstances, we do not believe God engineers them, although we say we do; we treat the things that happen as if they were engineered by men. To be faithful in every circumstance means that we have only one loyalty, and that is to our Lord. Suddenly God breaks up a particular set of circumstances, and the realisation comes that we have been disloyal to Him by not recognising that He had organised them… If we learn to worship God in the trying circumstances, He will alter them in two seconds when He chooses.”

Jacob’s first challenge would be to convince his wives! Whenever we step out in faith it is good to be surrounded by people who are like-minded and share our vision. Both Rachel and Leah are easily persuaded, although this is largely due to the feeling they weren’t going to get anything from their father in terms of inheritance. As an aside Donald Barnhouse comments: “Rachel and Leah were wrong to look to their father Laban for their portion or inheritance once they were married to Jacob. He now was their portion and inheritance. “Since you are saved and joined to Christ, appraise the world and ask, ‘Is there yet any portion for me?’ If you think there is, you are mistaken.”

Jacob leaves – unannounced. Laban discovers and pursues after Jacob but once again God intervenes and warns Laban not to harm Jacob. Jacob had been an ‘unconscious witness’ to Laban who eventually suggests a covenant between them appealing to “The God of Abraham, and the God of Nahor, the God of their father”.

However the world treats us, we should seek to be a witness in every part of our lives, that they might see beyond us to our God.

GENESIS 30 Pastor Barry Forder This teaching is our 26th session in our verse-by-verse study of the Book of Genesis by pastor Barry – given as part of our family service on 24th September 2017.

In this study, we see the birth of the children of Jacob and discover how their names tell the history of the nation in advance!

We also see both Rachel and Leah desperate to satisfy a desire. For Rachel, it was the desire to have children; for Leah, it was the desire to be loved by Jacob. Both thought if they could just get that which they desired, everything would be alright. In reality, only God Himself can satisfy. We can search for happiness and satisfaction from many things – a relationship, career, material possessions, family – but ultimately all will disappoint and leave you empty, bitter, resentful or maybe all of these and more.

We have been created to have a relationship with our Creator, it began in Genesis 1 and concludes with God and man walking in harmony in Revelation 21:3. Everything in between reveals how God has gone to unfathomable lengths to make it possible.

GENESIS 28-29 Pastor Barry Forder In chapter 28 we see two departings: Firstly, a 77-year-old Jacob leaves home because 1) dad & mum tell him it’s time he finds a wife! & 2) because Esau wants to kill him!

The second ‘departing’ is a spiritual departing as Esau tries to impress Isaac and Rebecca by ‘doing that which seemed right in his own eyes’. There are many, even within churches who have the appearance of godliness; they seem to be doing right as you look from the outside, but inwardly their heart is hard to the things of God and, like Esau, they are only seeking the blessings, the ways that their lives will be enhanced. To them, God is more of a Mastercard than a Master!

En route to Uncle Laban (450 miles away in Padan-aram), and after just (approx.) two days of his journey, Jacob lays down to rest in the remains of the town that was once called Luz. He finds a suitable stone to use as a pillow and beds down for the night – all alone, and no doubt apprehensive at what his future might now hold.

But then, in the depth of night, Jacob has a dream that was so real and vivid it would change his life forever. Up to now, others had been pulling the strings in his life, that was all about to change!

From John 1:45-51 we understand that Jacob comes face to face with Jesus. Jesus is the one taking hold of heaven on one hand and reaching down to fallen humanity on earth with the other. He is the mediator between God and man. It is significant that God the Son reiterates the promises given to Abraham & Isaac, and now them to Jacob personally. Significant, because the promises have to do with the Land of Israel and the descendants of Abraham – through whom the whole earth will be blessed. Jesus is the descendant of Abraham through whom those blessing will come, and He is the one who will ultimately rule over the Land of Israel during His Millennial reign! Jacob is here being given the keys just for a while!

When He awakes, Jacob does what we so often do! He wants to mark the place and names it Bethel “The House of God” – as if the place itself had any significance! Jacob will later return to this place, but it will never live up to his expectations. Of course, it couldn’t, for it was never about Bethel, but about the God Jacob met there. It is the same God who promises to never leave us or forsake us!

For us today, it is our hearts that have become Bethel. The living God has chosen to dwell in each one who has placed their trust in Jesus.

 “Thus saith the LORD, The heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool: where is the house that ye build unto me? and where is the place of my rest? For all those things hath mine hand made, and those things have been, saith the LORD: but to this man will I look, even to him that is poor and of a contrite spirit, and trembleth at my word”  (Isaiah 66:1-2).

“Jesus answered and said to him, “If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our home with him”. (John 14:23)

When Jacob arrives in Padan-aram he ‘happens’ to ‘bump into’ Rachel! What a coincidence! (Ed. A  coincidence is when God chooses to work anonymously!)

Over the next 14 years Jacob will end with two wives and two concubines and in so doing learn some lessons about the right (and responsibility) of the first-born – a role he himself has assumed without considering all it might entail.

GENESIS 26 Pastor Barry Forder This teaching is our 23rd session in our verse-by-verse study of the Book of Genesis by pastor Barry – given as part of our family service on 30th August 2017.

In Genesis 26, we see Isaac come to a moment of decision brought about by a famine in the land. God specifically tells Isaac not to go to Egypt, so in obedience, he stays in the land and moves to Gerar, the area inhabited by the Philistines.

Famines always bring us to a point of decision (cf the Prodigal Son. Luke 15:11-32), whether it be a famine of food or another type of ‘famine’ in our lives. Often God will engineer circumstances to cause us to step out on faith and trust. Chuck Missler said: “We can’t conceive of a holy God wanting anything less than His very best for His children, and the very best He can give us is a holy character”. This is why God will allow ‘famines’ in our lives, in order that (as with the prodigal son) we might turn to seek our Father.

As we noted in our study, there was a custom in Mesopotamia to make a wife a ‘legal’ sister. This came to light with the discovery of the Nuzi tablets in 1925-33 in Northern Iraq. Abraham ‘applied’ this in Gen 12:13 / 20:2, and Isaac now seemingly follows suit. By doing so the wife was elevated to joint-heir with her husband. In this see a wonderful model as this is what Christ has done with his wife (the Church), for we have been made ‘joint heirs’!

We also saw how Isaac (just as Abraham had done) strived with the Philistines trying to dig wells to find water.

What a difference the Cross has made!

We no longer have to strive for that life-giving-water. It is freely available in Christ for anyone who comes!

As we saw God do for Isaac, may God richly bless you as you walk in obedience by grace through faith!

GENESIS 22 Pastor Barry Forder This teaching is our 20th session in our verse-by-verse study of the Book of Genesis by pastor Barry – given as part of our family service on 23th July 2017.

Genesis 22 is one of those incredible ‘stand-out’ chapters in the Bible. On the surface we have the account of Abraham being asked by God to go and offer up his ‘only’ son as a burnt offering. Under the surface though, we have a model laid down some two thousand years in advance of the greatest event in human history, when another Father willingly offered up His only begotten Son, so that whosoever believes in Him would not perish, but have everlasting life!

This model becomes even more remarkable when we realise that the place that Abraham was told to offer up Isaac (on top of Mount Moriah), was later to be known as Golgotha, the very spot where Jesus was to be crucified. Abraham renamed the place:  “Jehovah-jireh”which means, “In the mount of the LORD it shall be seen” (Gen 22:14). Thus it would seem that on this occasion Abraham actually realised he was acting out prophecy, anticipating what was to come.

This is confirmed in Hebrews 11:17-19: “By faith Abraham, when he was tried, offered up Isaac: and he that had received the promises offered up his only begotten son; of whom it was said, That in Isaac shall thy seed be called: Accounting that God was able to raise him up, even from the dead; from whence also he received him in a figure.”

From the account in Genesis 22, we know that an innocent ram was eventually sacrificed in the place of Isaac, and again in this we see a model in anticipation of Jesus who, like that innocent ram, was sacrificed in our place so that like Isaac, we too could go free.

GENESIS 20-21 Pastor Barry Forder Please note: we had technical problems in the audio recording for this study

After the destruction of Sodom & Gomorrah (which Abraham would have observed at a distance), Abraham ups and goes to the land of the Philistines, and spends a year or more with Abimelech. Once again, Abraham omits to mention Sarah is his wife, for fear he might be killed because of her beauty. Proverbs 29: 25 tells us that fear of man brings a snare!

Seemingly, despite the promises and assurances God had given him, to bless and prosper him (“I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing: And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee” – Genesis 12:2-3) – Abraham had become more focussed on the current circumstances and allowed them to take his eyes of his Lord. We do the same! What makes God’s promises so ‘exceedingly great and precious’ is that it's God who gives them. But if we forget, if we allow the ‘present sufferings’ to cloud our minds, we don't have the peace that comes from knowing the glory that shall be revealed in us (seeRomans 8:18).

It wasn’t wrong to say Sarah was his sister, but it's wrong to hide the fact that she is his wife! Abraham had allowed the ‘covering’ that he should have been for his wife to be removed. Something he shouldn't have done.

Dr Bill Cooper points out in ‘The Authenticity of Genesis’, the discovery of the Nuzi tablets have shed some interesting insight on the actions of Abraham in the chapter. There existed at this time a law whereby a woman could be made both a sister and a wife – thereby elevating her status. As Bill Cooper states: “such legal transactions were a newly-established feature of the law which governed much of Mesopotamia where Abraham and his forebears came from. This is why the pharaoh was flummoxed by it, as Egypt knew no such provision; and so was Abimelech or Gerar, a Philistine king. Thier puzzlement was doubtless due to the comparative novelty of the sister-wife law at that time, again attesting to the antiquity of these events. But it also explains why Abraham was sent away from both kings loaded with gifts. Abraham, no doubt, was able to demonstrate his lawful integrity by the presentation of the contracts under which Sarah had become first his sister, and then his wife, even as Isaac would have been able to do at a later date. Kings who discover that they been duped by a rascal, do not usually send him away the richer for his lies. He’d be lucky to escape with his life!”

What is the real point?

Abraham’s time with Abimelech ended up serving an object lesson for Abraham and Sarah. The result of Abraham’s omission that Sarah is his wife led to Abimelech taking Sarah into his harem. The result being God closed up the wombs of Abimelech’s wife, his maidservants and of the other women ‘in his house’. When everything came to light – probably after three months of Abraham being there – God told Abraham to pray for Abimelech and God opened their wombs that they conceived.

The lesson is simple but profound: God can open closed wombs! God promised to do his part for Abraham and Sarah and bless them with a son, but they needed to do their part! Surely it's no coincidence that after this demonstration of God’s miracle working power that Sarah conceived, and 9 months later gave birth to Isaac! Sometimes God uses circumstances around us to get our attention back on to Him, and remind us He is able!

GENESIS 18-19 Pastor Barry Forder This teaching is our 18th session in our verse-by-verse study of the Book of Genesis by pastor Barry – given as part of our family service on 25th June 2017.

In Genesis 18, we find Abraham sitting in the doorway of his tent, minding his own business, seemingly not thinking about anything in particular, when he looks up and sees three ‘men’ in the distance coming toward him. We’re not told what Abraham saw, but he very soon realised that these were not ordinary sojourners, for at the age of 99 he immediately gets up, runs toward them, then falls down and worships them!

In our study we see that these three ‘men’ were actually God Himself accompanied by two angels.

For 25 years Abraham had been looking – and it’s fair to say, longing for – the fulfilment of God’s promise that he would have a son.

Now, after all of Abraham’s striving, when he has given up on his own ability to fulfil God’s plan for him, God comes to him when he is resting and gives him this overwhelming news: “By this time next year, you and Sarah will have a son!”

 

“Drop Thy still dews of quietness,

Till all our strivings cease;

Take from our souls the strain and stress,

And let our ordered lives confess

The beauty of Thy peace”

 

God then reveals to Abraham what He is going to do regarding Sodom & Gomorrah.

What follows is a practical and powerful lesson in intercessory prayer. Abraham appeals to God on the basis of God’s character, because He is Just and Faithful. Abraham comes humbly before God, appeals for God’s mercy, and believes by faith.

As a fellowship the LORD has laid on our hearts the need and desire to pray for our unsaved loved ones and friends. Just as Abraham, God  has visited us in person (through Jesus) and allowed us the opportunity to pray for those we know who are currently dwelling in the world facing God’s judgment – their eyes being blinded to the truth of the Gospel.

“It came to pass, when God destroyed the cities of the plain, that God remembered Abraham“(Gen 19:29) – that is, God remembered Abraham’s petition.

God will remember you petition to if you come to Him “believing that He is, and that He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him” (Hebrews 11:6).

GENESIS 16-17 Pastor Barry Forder This teaching is our 17th session in our verse-by-verse study of the Book of Genesis by pastor Barry – given as part of our family service on 18th June 2017.

In this session, we continue to look at the life and walk of Abraham, and consider some of the trials he experienced. As with us, so many of the problems Abraham wrestled with were of his own making, because he acted independently of God’s will for his life. In short, he walked by sight on a number of occasions and not by faith. In chapter 17 God will call Abraham to ‘be perfect’ – that is, not without sin, but perfect in his intentions, in his desire to seek and serve God above all else – including his own natural inclinations!

GENESIS 15 Pastor Barry Forder This teaching is our 16th session in our verse-by-verse study of the Book of Genesis by pastor Barry – given as part of our family service on 11th June 2017.

In this session, we look at the unconditional covenant that God makes with Abraham. God promised him the Land of Canaan to be a possession for his descendants. This has been one of the most contested ‘land-grants’ in history. Assyria, Babylon, Persia, Greece, Rome, the Byzantine Empire, the Ottoman Empire, the Roman Catholic Church, the UN and EU have all tried to claim ownership of this relatively small and insignificant piece of real estate. There is no oil to speak of, no natural resources, no real reason for the ownership of this land to be so hotly contested – yet it is!

Stephen R. Haynes, in his book “Reluctant Witnesses”, stated, “The survival of the Jewish people is the greatest proof of the existence of Almighty God. If there were no God in Heaven, there would not be one Jewish person on the earth”. Yet, despite the endless persecutions and threats of annihilation, despite being dispersed around the world for the best part of 1900 years, Israel are today a nation in the land promised to Abraham. The governments of the world can say and do what they will, God’s promises are sure and His covenants are immutable.

GENESIS 13-14 Pastor Barry Forder This teaching is our 15th session in our verse-by-verse study of the Book of Genesis by pastor Barry – given as part of our family service on 4th June 2017.

In this session, we look at the walk of Abraham and his growing in knowledge and grace, from the first altar he built to the Lord at Shechem, to the place of ultimate sacrifice.

Abram continued his journey away from the things of this world and to the place of fellowship with God. This is what God wants for us all.

In Chapter 14 we see the LORD use pagan kings to start to cleanse the promised land from the ‘giant’ problem that existed in Canaan – the result of Satan’s plan to stop the Seed of the woman (the Messiah) being born. We also see in type how the ‘king from below’ tried to offer Abram worldly goods in exchange for the souls of the people – nothing changes!

GENESIS 11 Pastor Barry Forder This teaching is our 13th session in our verse-by-verse study of the Book of Genesis by pastor Barry – given as part of our family service on 21st May 2017. In this study, we look at one of the pivotal events in history – the Tower of Babel. After the flood, the families of Shem, Ham and Japheth traveled west and settled in the area of modern-day Iraq, on the plain of Shinar. From what the Bible reveals and from historical accounts, the grandson of Noah, Cush, led the people in rebelling against God and building a huge tower for two reasons: firstly, to act as a landmark to try to keep from spreading out around the world (contrary to God’s command); secondly, to be used as an astrological viewing platform. Cush’s son, Nimrod founded Babel and established the first world government (Gen 10:10), but Cush himself seems to have been the ringleader behind this rebellion. One might easily ask how man could so quickly depart from the worship of God to follow after idols? And, why did these ancient cultures have such a fascination with the planets etc? In this study we look at some compelling conjectures that may have been the reason for both the tower of Babel and the ‘high places’ that we read so much about in the Old Testament. We also note that from this, almost all false religion has come, including astrology and the corruption of the Hebrew Mazaroth, which may well have once told the gospel story in the stars, but now, since Babel, has become the distorted into the Zodiac. We will see that, when we look at history through the lens of scripture, there is incredible clarity and so much of history then makes sense!

In this study, as we look at Chapter 4 of Genesis – The Second Murder. The first pre-meditated murder took place inside the Garden of Eden when Satan intentionally deceived Eve, knowing full well that the result of her action would lead to her death. What Satan did not realise was the God would then use death as a way to bring new life. The second murder took place outside the Garden of Eden. Eve had given birth to two boys. As far as Adam, Even and Satan knew, one of them could be the promised Seed of the last chapter. Satan, not willing to take any chances used his same lie again. “Has God really said…”. This time, the question was directed toward Cain. “Do you really have to offer a blood sacrifice? Why not offer God some of that wonderful produce you have grown?” Whatever it was that was whispered in Cain’s ear, he decided to approach God on his terms and not God’s. He brought God the best he could produce, but the problem was, to make atonement for sin there had to be the shedding of blood. God had instigated the first blood sacrifice in the Garden of Eden when He had made two coats of skin for Adam and Eve from two innocent substitutes. In all probability, this would have been done in front of Adam and Eve so that they would have been brought face to face with the real cost of sin. This pointed forward to the sacrifice that would one day be offered – once and for all – on a cross at Calvary. Jude tells us that Cain denied the Lord Jesus Christ (Jude 4, 11). How so? By refusing to offer a sacrifice acceptable to God for his sin he denied the atonement through the shedding of blood that foreshadowed the death of Christ to atone for sin. Cain’s path then descends into darkness as he and his descendants turn away from the light of God’s revelation toward the darkness of a life given over to sin. It is amazing how ‘the way of Cain’ that Jude speaks of reads like a checklist for today’s world. You can listen to the audio on this web page, or save it for listening to later.
