Genesis 175

Oct 15, 14

Gen 50:15-26. Knowing they had done wrong, Joseph's brothers were overcome by a guilty conscience from which they could not move past. Rather than seeking retribution, Joseph—a type of Christ—treats his brothers in grace, provides for them, and leaves matters to the Supreme Court of Heaven. God worked the brothers' evil for His good purposes. Joseph continued to remain in Egypt until his death, trusting in God's plan that in time He would cause them to leave.

Genesis 174

Is climate change anthropogenic? Jacob's Burial: Gen 50:1-18. The Egyptians demonstrate their respect for Jacob by embalming and mourning for him. He is buried in the promised land by his sons.

Joseph understood that everything was going according to God's plan and purpose; his brothers, on the other hand, failed to understand the spiritual life and fearing Joseph, lied. Feeling sorry for his brothers Joseph weeps.

Genesis 173

Doctrine of Grieving continued. Passages comforting the believer in times of sorrow and distress. God provides for us that we may recover and then be a comfort to others (2 Cor 1:4). With the loss of a loved one, we should not grieve as those who have no hope (1 Thess 4:13ff). There is going to be sorrow and soul pain, but God has provided the solution and the means of recovery and encouragement.

Genesis 171

Sep 10, 14

The Heart-Shield Bible of WW II and President Roosevelt. The Doctrine of Dying Grace. A byproduct of the faith-rest life, dying grace is a special experience of peace and tranquility at death. The time, manner and place of our death is not by chance nor accidental, but determined by God. We can relax; God has numbered our days, and our every heartbeat is in His sovereign, loving hands. Angels guard and care for the believer.

Has their identify remained?

Genesis 167

Aug 13, 14

Doctrine of Suicide. Is suicide a superimposition of human volition over divine volition? While there are times when it is right to take a life (e.g. capital punishment), suicide is always wrong; it is following Satan's plan, not God's. It is the pinnacle of preoccupation with self and arrogance taken to the extreme. Suicide prevention begins by safe guarding your own soul. After the fall, life is not without despair, but we must not lose heart.
