However, Abraham, like David later, did some horrible things in his life: To start with, Abram.(name changed later to Abraham).was told by Creator-God to get out from where he was and go somewhere else. Abraham did not want to go alone so he took someone with him. God gave him no instructions to take anyone else:.Genesis 12:1,4. But the Creator did not say not to either. Abraham knew that and used it to his advantage. Good for him! He also didn't ask whether or not it was ok. Ha! ha! He was no fool in getting what he wanted within the framework of Creator's will. 

But he does do some things that reveal his character is much like the rest of us. Abraham lies to protect himself and gets his wife involved in the little scheme too:.Genesis 12:9-20

Then Abraham, urged on by his woman, has sex with her maid Hagar and then this brings its own set of problems:.Genesis 16:1-4

Then Abraham did not believe his Creator.(in this regard).when Creator told him that he, being 99 years old, was going to have a son:.Genesis 17:16,17

Abraham lies to protect himself again. Hey! It worked the first time, so why not he figures. Abraham involves his woman in it again and she even goes along with it the second time!.Genesis 20:2-13.(notice in verses 12 and 13 how Abraham worms around trying to justify himself).

As father Abraham was, so also is his son Isaac.(Genesis 17:19), one of many children he had. Isaac.(Matthew 22:32).lived in circa.B.C.E. 1896-1705. Most of his life was spent in the southern part of Canaan.(map).and its vicinity. He lived to be 180. His brother was Esau

Isaac does similarly to Abraham, his father:.Genesis 26:7-17. But Creator-God blesses him nevertheless, just as he did Abraham, Isaac's father. Why? They both, like Rahab the prostitute, had that higher form of righteousness, that of belief. They knew the Creator was real and they had some of the high consciousness attributes of the Creator.

Jacob, B.C.E. 1836-1689, was Isaac's son and Abraham's grandson. He also had an interesting life. Jacob's name was changed to Israel for a reason:.Genesis 32:28 "And he said, Your name shall be called no more Jacob, but Israel, for as a prince have you power with God and with men and have prevailed.".What led to this? Here's the story:.Genesis 32:24-28.

The ancient world was to be blessed through the peoples that came through the lineage of Abraham, Isaac.(Genesis 17:19),.Jacob, and Joseph, the people who believed in God back then:.Genesis 12:2.

The modern world is also to be blessed through those who believe what it means that Emmanuel came to reestablish.(this time in the physical).a relationship with God the Father.

I mean, the Creator talked to Abraham and Abraham knew who it was he was conversing with. Didn't he think that his Creator would protect him? No! And this even after the Creator had told him this:.Genesis 15:1

After all the wrong Abraham did, it sure took faith to believe that he was still a friend of his Creator; again, James 2:23

In spite of all his shortcomings, the Creator inspired scriptures to be written about him and why?.Romans 4:3,7.

The lesson of Abraham is that doing things apart from what the Creator wants cannot separate you from Him. There is never a reason anymore to ever feel hopeless

Abraham does trust his Creator that things will work out the best for his life though and Abraham would go to any length to create peace:.Genesis 13:8,9. He gave the other guy the first choice, seeing his Creator working all things out for the benefit of all, at least at this juncture, he saw the Creator guiding things behind the scenes:.Romans 8:28.

Genesis 25:7,8 "And these are the days of the years of Abraham's life which he lived, an hundred threescore and fifteen years. Then Abraham gave up the ghost and died in a good old age, an old man and full of years and was gathered to his people."



About Moses

If you have not seen the old movie The Ten Commandments, which beautifully follows the story of Moses.(and the ancient Israelites exodus from Egypt), you can read about him here.

Moses was born about B.C.E. 1571, 85 years after the flood in 1656 when Noah was 600 years old:.Genesis 5:32. Moses was the son of Amram and Jochebed, of the tribe of Levi and the younger brother of Miriam and Aaron.

Before Moses, other important personages were the patriarch.Abraham, then Issac, Abraham's son, then Jacob who was Issac's son and then Jacob's son Joseph. And the geneology carries on.

The woman Moses had was Zipporah.(who was an Ethiopian woman, so she probably was of the black race:.Numbers 12:1), the daughter of a man named Hobab, the son of Reuel:.Exodus 2:18.

Moses had trouble believing his Creator even when he was spoken to directly by Him:.Exodus 4:11-16. It shows here that the Creator greatly regards our feelings about things and changes His mind to accomodate one's feelings, even though the Creator's patience really was tried in this case with Moses. Moses was a person who felt deeply for others he was leading.

Never be hesitant to make your thoughts known to the Creator. Be open and forthright. If you have something against Him, tell Him. The ancient Israelites and Judahites had much against God, so much so, that they didn't want God around at all:.Jeremiah 44:16,17.

They despised the over 600+ Mosaic laws and who in his right mind wouldn't? The Mosaic Law with its many rules, regulations, offerings and sacrifices was onerous, complicated and burdensome. In addition, the religious people who adhered to it throughout history added even more to it! It was a disaster. It was just too much for people, especially so as the people had no heart for it. Who would? It has been completely abolished.along with the ancient religious system that perpetuated it for their own advantage.

Moses had great problems bringing all the children of Israel out of Egypt and toward a better life in a different land. He was a little over 80 years of age at this time:.Exodus 32:6; Nunbers 25:1-9; Exodus 15:24; 16:2,3; 17:2-7.

Moses, upon finding out from the Creator how fed up He was with the corruption of the ancient.Israelites, gets God to change His mind on what He was going to do:.Exodus 32:7-14,31,32. And this happened time and time again:.Isaiah 19:20,21.

Meek Moses.(Numbers 12:3).cared deeply for others, but had an angry streak that cost him dearly. He was not to go over the river Jordan into the land of Canaan God had promised to the children of those who came out of Egyptian bondage. The adults, because of their constant carping and complaining could not go into the land either. Only their children, now adults, could go.

Moses died at 120 years old:.Deuteronomy 34:1-7.
