    They tried to worship the most high god, which created the heavens and the earth which created us out of all images, And it came to pass that abram was one of the servants of the most high god. God has blessed abram all ready but he was not done yet.

    "Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even we also should walk in newness of life. For if we had been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection: knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin. For he that is dead is freed from sin. Now if we be dead with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with him: knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more; death hath no dominion over him. For in that he died, he died unto sin once: but in that he liveth, he liveth unto God. Likewise reckon ye also to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord."

    Verse 12-Lot may have moved to Sodom because it was a prosperous place materially. He faced the threat of losing all his good here. We want to make sure that we choose to put spiritual things ahead of material things.
  • Marion jackson on Genesis 14
    Which line of descendants from Noah is the most fully described or talked about why
  • Chris - in Reply on Genesis 14
    Without dispute, the line of Shem is the one that is constantly referred to in the Bible. Shem was the middle brother, with Japheth being the eldest & Ham, the youngest of Noah's sons. It was through Shem's descendants that Abraham came & from Abraham, the branch of the Hebrews (later Israelites & Israel) & of the Ishmaelites (later Muslims) split. You can see Shem's line in Luke 3:23-38 which leads to our Saviour, Jesus Christ.

    And of course, this line of Shem is most "talked about" since God had called this line of people to be His very own, setting His Love upon them (Deuteronomy 7:6-8) & through which He would one day bring forth His Son to be the one & only Sacrifice as payment for mankind's sins.
  • Pam Chatman on Genesis 14
    Melchezdec is God appearing with bread and wind representations of the coming of Jesus, the Baptizing of Believers, the shedding of Jesus's blood. The unyielding of man's dependency on GOD, The demonstration of GOD being everything we need (in war, trouble, time of peace and times of food needed for our health and our Everything} No matter what may come or go GOD is our answer in Prayer. Abram respected GOD to the Highest. He has manifested HIMSELF many times directing man to his awesome Powers and Protections. We serve the most High GOD, there is no one before HIM, no one beside HIM no one with HIM, HE is GOD all by HIMSELF. HE can be whatever HE wants to be when HE wants to.

    I'm not confused here. I don't believe in war, but in this case they started it and I think they got what was coming to them. Don't mess with my kin.
  • Stanjett on Genesis 14
    18 And Melchizedek king of Salem brought forth bread and wine: and he was the priest of the most high God. This is not Jesus.
  • A disciple on Genesis 14
    Dear BG; You wrote, "You can clearly see Abram's growing dependence upon God to throughout his life. He wasn't perfect but he was learning to trust the Lord more and more." While it is so popular to take up this kind of talk, and apologizing to the ungodly for the Saints; it does not describe Abram! Genesis 6:3 Excusing one's self for failure because of the weakness of the flesh is disobedience!
  • A disciple on Genesis 14
    What a world of danger and disaster do the ungodly have to endure! Just a glimpse into the kind of world going on all around "God's Friend Abram;" in which his nephew Lot was accidentally caught up in, because he was not as keen on this life of a pilgrim like his uncle was determined to live. Abram and his 318 men chased and destroyed five Nations' armies, and delivered the captives and the spoil!
  • BG on Genesis 14
    Day 5 of the KingJamesBibleonline reading the Bible through in one year. Had to play a little "catch up" but that is ok. You can clearly see Abram's growing dependence upon God to throughout his life. He wasn't perfect but he was learning to trust the Lord more and more.

    Verse 14: Abraham took great measures to go rescue his nephew Lot. Lot chose a dangerous place to live, but Abraham loved Lot and wanted to do all he could to save him.
  • Irene123 on Genesis 14
    To Victor on Melchisedec/Jesus - Melchisedec was a theophany of God/Jesus. Jesus is God's N.T. name, just as Jehovah was His O.T. name. I think it's Jn. 1:14 that says God was manifest in the flesh, and the angel in Lk. 2 to Mary said His name was to be Jesus.
  • Victor on Genesis 14
    ......but (!!!!) was appearance of Jesus taking place in the Old Testament???!!!
  • Irene123 on Genesis 14
    Melchizdek brought out bread and wine when he met Abraham (Gen. 14:18). His action was a prophetic foreshadowing of the memorials of the body and blood of Jesus in the last supper.
  • Irene123 on Genesis 14
    God had many 'manifestations' in the O.T. Melchisedec was one, the burning bush another, Jacob's wrestling partner, and many more. God later, in the N.T. manifested Himself as Jesus Christ.

  • Diane on Genesis 14
    I was amazed at Abrahams deep concern for the souls to be rescued.The material things were of little use other than refresh the men.It was the people who were the most important items to be rescued like unto our Lord Jesus Christs mission to recue the perishing and care for the dying.
  • Carman Lee on Genesis 14
    To comment on Abrahm not receiving goods. because he was content. In this manner. Contentment with Godleness is great gain. He has been blessed by the MOST HIGH GOD. And blessed by someone that is held in high position. Melchisadec. This is enough to both of these men.
  • Evangelist Chatauna Robinson on Genesis 14
    Hello Imrana In addition to my 2 part response to your question, a lot of people do not believe in paying tithes. Some have argued that it was in the Old Testament and not in the New Testament. However, tithes are mentioned in the New Testament as well. Hebrews 7 And verily they that are of the sons of Levi, who receive the office of the priesthood, have a commandment to take tithes of the people according to the law, that is, of their brethren, though they come out of the loins of Abraham Once again Melchisedec is not Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ is God manifested in the flesh, 1 Timothy 3 16 And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory .
  • Evangelist Chatauna Robinson on Genesis 14
    Part 2 of 2 Jesus Christ is God manifested in the flesh. Melchisedec was a type of shadow of Jesus in that Abraham paid tithes unto him. Melchisedec was not Jesus but represented Jesus as both king and priest. We pay tithes and offering to Jesus Christ, who is God manifested in the flesh. We pay a tenth part of every dollar we earn. This is to say one dime out of every dollar. Please read over up under John Chapter 1 my response to Linton concerning paying tithes and offering. Abraham was a type and shadow of us today. He is an example on how we are to pay tithes today. Then you read over in Malachi 3 thru 12. So whoever told you that Melchisedec was Jesus Christ is very much incorrect. I hope this answers your question.
  • Evangelist Chatauna Robinson on Genesis 14
    Part 1 of 2 Hello Imrana No, Melchisedec is not Jesus Christ. One of the significance of the Melchisedec story is that Abraham paid tithes to him as king of Salem. Melchisedec was also the priest of the most high God. Remember God did have priest. Just like he has ministers and other to teach and carry his word to all. The Levites carried the Word of God. Hebrews 7 For this Melchisedec, king of Salem, priest of the most high God, who met Abraham returning from the slaughter of the kings, and blessed him To whom also Abraham gave a tenth part of all first being by interpretation King of righteousness, and after that also King of Salem, which is, King of peace
  • Imrana on Genesis 14
    is the king mentioned in verse 18 is Jesus? as someone told me this
  • Nathaniel on Genesis 14
    Never you denied your subordinates their rights and privileges. Abraham allowed his men to have their "portion " despite his determination not to take anything from King of Sodom. Again, materialism must give way for spiritualism. If you wants to serve God, you must deny yourself of many things.
  • Joseph on Genesis 14
    One of the greatest lessons i learnt from the life of Abraham in this Chapter is 'perfect Christian love '. Even though his nephew, Lot was greedy and ungrateful by choosing first before his benefactor, very few people would have done what Abraham did afterwards when Lot fell into trouble and was captured. At the personal expense and risk to his own life, Abraham went to war on behalf of Lot to rescue him. No wonder the Bible says 'faith works by love ' Galatians 5 , and no wonder Abraham was called the father of faith. True faith indeed works by love. It was the same kind of love that Jesus disclosed in Matthew 5 'Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect. ' As Christians, we must never repay evil with evil but repay evil with good. This is possible as we yield totally to God on a daily basis and are consecrated to God continually. I wonder the kind of great revival that would happen in our local bodies of Christ if we start practising this kind of divine love Abraham exhibited towards his nephew Lot.
