"We see, in many a land, the proudest dynasties and tyrannies still crushing, with their mountain weight, every free motion of the Consciences and hearts of men. We see, on the other hand, the truest heroism for the right and the greatest devotion to the Truth in hearts that God has touched. We have a work to do, as great as our forefathers and, perhaps, far greater. The enemies of Truth are more numerous and subtle than ever and the needs of the Church are greater than at any preceding time. If we are not debtors to the present, then men were never debtors to their age and their time. Brethren, we are debtors to the hour in which we live. Oh, that we might stamp it with Truth and that God might help us to impress upon its wings some proof that it has not flown by neglected and unheeded." -- C.H. Spurgeon . . . "If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free." John 8:31, 32 . . . . .

GENESIS – An Expositional Overview of the Beginning of God’s Revelation: Chapter THIRTY ONE


Contributing commentaries by pastors Sonny Islas, Albert Lopez and James Fire

GENESIS 31 – by James Fire

Introduction: It’s a good thing that the LORD doesn’t treat us the way that we, at times, treat others; because we’re not always as fair and faithful to family and friends as we ought to be, but the LORD is ever faithful and far, far more than fair to us.
There are, however, times when we need to learn valuable lessons in relationships, and so the LORD will deal out to us the same sort of treatment that we deal out to those around us. It’s the same idea as judging – the LORD will judge us with the same standard that we judge others by (MATT 7:1-2). Which is why we should always be merciful, kind, gracious and generous towards others, so that we may reflect our LORD’s character for one; and also that we may receive such blessedness ourselves.

GENESIS – An Expositional Overview of the Beginning of God’s Revelation: Chapter THIRTY

BIGAMY, RIVALRY, TRICKERY AND SUPERSTITION

Introduction: Another way to title this message is Sin, Sin, sin and Sin.

Before we read Genesis 30, I’d like to back track just a bit. In Genesis 29, we find that one of Jacob’s two wives named Leah was unloved, while Rachel was loved. Because of this sad situation, the LORD (who loved Leah and Rachel equally) opens Leah’s womb while keeping Rachel’s barren in order to comfort Leah. (We learn a lesson here: When those closest to use fail to love us, the LORD’s love never fails.)

Here’s a very interesting fact:

Leah the unloved wife gave birth to Levi and Judah. Moses and John the Baptist come from the Tribe of Levi. King David and The King of kings – Jesus the Messiah comes from the Tribe of Judah. So, Leah the unloved is the great grandmother of the God man!  
Rachel the preferred one, gives birth to Benjamin down the road, some more about him in chapter 35. King Saul and the greatest Apostle, in my estimation, the Apostle Paul comes from the tribe of Benjamin.
