BIBLE VERSE STUDY ON THE
BIBLE VERSE MEANING WITH THE
BIBLE VERSE MESSAGE
Hello again and welcome back! As you recall, we were talking
about Abram and the blessings that God had promised him if he would, in
faith alone, go to a land where God would take him. Did they pack up
and go? Indeed they did. Abram, his wife Sarai, his nephew Lot, and all the people who belonged to their “clan” in Haran, formed a caravan and
headed out for the unknown.
They headed south, and they came to the land of Canaan. Then
when they got to a place called Sichem, God appeared to Abram and told him
he would give this land to his children's children. From this point on, it became known as
the “Promised Land.” So Abram built an altar for
God there and kept going until they came to Bethel. Abram built another
altar there, and they pitched their tents and settled for a while.
PROMISED LAND BIBLE VERSE LESSON WITH THE PROMISED LAND BIBLE VERSE EXPLANATION
AND THE PROMISED LAND BIBLE VERSE SUMMARY
There was a terrible famine and shortage of food at the time. They
headed for Egypt because there was food there. Abram remembered a custom
that the Egyptian pharaoh had of abducting beautiful wives and killing the
husbands and the wife became one of pharaoh's harem
and Abram was afraid that when the Egyptians saw that Sarai
was a beautiful woman, they would kill him. So Abram told Sarai to say
that she was his sister, that way, they would let him live. As it happened, the princes of the
Pharaoh (the name for the
ruler of Egypt) saw Sarai and told the Pharaoh about her. She was
taken to live in the pharaoh’s house.
angered God of course and God caused the Pharaoh and his family to have awful plagues
on account of Sarai. When the Pharaoh figured out why he was being plagued,
he called Abram and told
Abram to take his wife and all that he had come with to Egypt and to leave, and he ordered his
men to get rid of them. Sarai had a handmaid during her time with Pharaoh
named Hagar and she too left with them.
