January 9, read through the Holy Bible in a year in Power-point, with comments.

The three chapters chosen for today all deal with sin, its consequences and God’s forgiveness

January 9: John 8, Genesis 18, Genesis 19, (click on the chapter to begin reading)

John 8 begins with the sinful woman who was about to be stoned for adultery. Jesus last words to her was “Go and sin no more”. Jesus did not condemn her for the past but forgave and pointed to the future. The he got into an argument with the religious powers about his and their ancestry. They claimed to be descendants of Abraham, and they questioned the legitimacy of Jesus. Jesus answered “Before Abraham, I am”. Jesus claimed to be God. This was of course blasphemy, unless it is true.

Which brings us to Genesis 18 with Abraham still waiting for his promised offspring. He was visited by three angels that promised him he will have a son within a year. God confirmed this promise, but was also proclaiming the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah. Abraham tried to bargain with God, at no avail.

So in Genesis 19 Sodom and Gomorrah are destroyed. There is ample evidence this is a historical true event, the Bible is verified true even here. God provided for Lot, his wife and two daughters to escape.They did, but Lot’s wife looked back towards the city and was no more. After that is recorded the strange story about Lot and his two daughters, and all I can say about that is that it is not good to take matters in our own hand rather than listen to God and let Him guide.
