ABIMELECH BIBLE MESSAGE
Good day to you and welcome back again. In our last few stories, we
focused mainly on the life of Lot, Abrahamís nephew, and now itís time to
pick up where we left off in the life of Abraham and Sarah.
It happened that shortly after Sodom and Gomorrah and the surrounding area
was destroyed by God, Abraham and Sarah left Hebron and settled in the north
part of the Sinai Peninsula of Egypt. Abraham visited a city called
Gerar and found that the people there werenít very godly and Abraham feared
that they would kill him for his wife Sarah.
So, as he did once before to protect Sarah, Abraham said that she was his
sister. The king of Gerar whose name was Abimelech sent for Sarah to
be brought to him.
God appeared to Abimelech in a dream one night and said to him, Youíre as
good as dead because the woman that you took is a manís wife. But
Abimelech hadnít been with her yet. He explained to God, Iím
innocent, didnít he tell me she is his sister? And she told me that he
is her brother.
ABRAHAM AND ABIMELECH BIBLE STORY LESSON WITH ABRAHAM AND ABIMELECH BIBLE
God told Abimelech, I know that you did this in the honesty of your heart
and I kept you from sinning against me, so I didnít allow you to make her
your wife. Now give the man his wife back. He is a prophet
and he will pray for you and youíll live. If you donít give her back,
you and all your family will die.
God is so gracious. He always gives people the opportunity to CHOOSE
to do the right thing.
Abimelech got up early the next morning and told all his servants what God
said to him in his dream and they were all very afraid. Then he called
Abraham, and said, What have you done to us? What made you do such a
Abraham said, I did it because I thought, surely the fear of God isnít in
this place; and theyíll kill me to get my wife. And truly, she is my
sister; we have the same father, but not the same mother; and I married her.
And when God told me to leave my fatherís house I told her, Please do me
this favor; wherever we go, say you are my brother.

AND ABIMELECH BIBLE STORY MEANING
Abimelech gave sheep and oxen and men servants and women servants to
Abraham, and returned Sarah to him. He told Abraham to live anywhere
in his kingdom that he pleased. And he told Sarah that he gave Abraham
a thousand pieces of silver.
Apparently, Abimelech had heard about when God plagued the house of Pharaoh
for the same reason. This time the Lord closed up all the wombs of the
house of Abimelech because of what happened. But when Abraham prayed
to God, He healed Abimelech and his wife and his maidservants; and they were
able to have children again.
