God Speaks Beofre He Does

God Speaks Beofre He Does

This Sermon was preached by Pastor Joseph Thomas on Sunday, January 15, 2018. He continues in our study of the Old Testament with scripture found in Genesis 15.

Intro: The context of chp 14 forms the backdrop

1. God Speaks to Abram’s Concern (vs 1 – 6)

2. God’s Words are Displayed in Action (vs 7-21)

“Covenants” formally bind two parties ~ it has expectations, commitments, consequences, and may have witnesses. The ‘proof’ or sign of the covenant varies (9:12, 17:11, Ex. 31:12-17, etc.). Depending on the nature of a covenant (example: between warring nations/kings), often the right is given to the other to take the life of the one who violates the covenant – also known as a self-curse.

When it comes to all of God’s covenants, you can take it to the bank!

• It’s God’s Word and He swears it on His own life!
• He is the One who is committed to make it work! (Jer. 31:31-33)
