    And he lift up his eyes and looked, and, lo, three men stood by him: And one of the three, I think was Jesus. He was the one that answered all of Abrahams questions. The other two were angels, because only two angels entered into Sodom.

    The three men are God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit.

    Verses 4,5~Hospitality was a very important custom in ancient Israel. Hospitality should be important to us today.

    vs 19 - God's foreknowledge of Abraham's dependence upon God for good works is shown here. Abraham, will by faith, act upon the promises and truth God has given him.

    This chapter highlights Jehovah God's patience in dealing with Abraham. He allowed him to question him multiple times and he gave him an answer each time.

    Dear Jonathan; Why do you not spell out the word God? He is not offended or challenged by our unworthiness; but He rather loves us and seeks to save us! (John 3:16-17) There is a prophecy in Amos about the disobedient Jews at one point being no longer allowed to mention the LORD's Name; but it is not for us who believe and love the Name of our God and Saviour! What are your thoughts? Please write!

    To Marty's comment 2/2016; How does one open the Bible, and not be afraid to think and say what you said? The episode with Noah is glaringly apparent; Ham had no compunctions about looking on his father's nakedness, and no respect or fear to talk about it out loud! He was a filthy rebel in his heart, and it manifested in his descendants after him! Japheth and Shem loved and honored their father!

    Dear Ron; I'm so sorry to read about your sickness. I will pray for you to be healed also, and for the Lord to help you with all the strength and comfort you need. There are things I think are too hard for us in this life, and we just want to be strong and feel like we were before. It may be unbelief; it may be that we have to search our hearts and give account to God; it may be we have to wait?

    Ron,'what will it take for him to heal me." God wounds us and heals us for many different reasons. There is no set formula, He heals the wicked as well as the righteous, as it pleases him. Psalms;"I know that it is good for me to be afflicted, that I might learn your statutes."Read chapter 2 Cor. 12, V.7 Paul asked him 3 times to remove the pain (thorn) in his side. Job 13:15 ,Job 23:12-16.

    Ron: Without His Spirit Living within,You can Read The Bible a 1000-x. Not much will happen. Only when You ask Forgiveness:1John 1:9-2:2. You will be Washed by His Blood:Revelation 1:5. You will be Baptized with The Holy Ghost:Mark1:8. You will be Changed:2Corinthians 5:17 You will Know!/ This happens when You are Called,a Tug in Your Heart:John 6:44. His Word will Open to You a New Life!

    Ron; Sorry to hear about your crippling accident. The LORD has a purpose for all things and will work them out for good. WE can only pray and wait on the LORD to do what HE has on HIS mind. Like I said sorry to hear about your accident but I will be praying with you in your time of need.
  • Ron

    Hello Saints!

    In Genesis 18-1, it is truly amazing how our father Abraham, recognize, Yahweh, and the two Cherubs instantly. I wonder how many time have Lord Jesus, approach us in homelessness, or any other basic human need and we did not recognized, or help!

    Marty, I hope that you will never lose a desire to read God's word. I pray you would have a burning desire to know Christ and the power of His resurrection. God can only work in hearts that are open and willing to be moldable in His hands. The more i read God's word and memorize it and meditate upon it the more I learn about how mighty and powerful God really is.
  • BSP
    Abraham was being hospitable in the opening verses. This is a good quality to have.
  • Nyani
    Its interesting how i have read this verse several times, but just came to this epiphany; It is not God's will for the righteous to perish with the wicked. That's injustice in God's sight. Supplementary prayer is key. I bless God for such a revelation.

    Marty, If you are trying to find God I suggest you first start in prayer. Second get into a good church where the elders can help lead you. When I first read the Bible I read the new testament first then the old testament. Jesus Christ is who your looking for. I'd suggest you first read about him then come back and read what lead up to our Savior. May God bless you with wisdom and understanding and may you except your gift of life eternal. I love you and Jesus does to.

    Marty: Something that you may be missing is the grace of God. The men of the bible were most certainly not perfect. They were sinners, tempted just as you and I are. However, through studying their lives, we can make corrections to our own. There is nothing new under the sun and their problems are often our own problems. Through the bible you can find salvation through grace (Eph. 2:8-10)

    Marty, God gives understanding.
    When you reject God's word, you reject him.
  • Marty
    Have read the first 18 chapters of Genesis, and it genuinely seems to be an account of some wandering desert tribe. What's the Freudian thing about Noah's nakedness? A man sees another man naked! So what? Sorry this is so negative, but I don't even begin to see how this could make me a better person. And Abram having a child with his wife's handmaid? It sounds like a sordid soap opera sub-plot.
  • G.E. Buchanan
    I pray this example will be used when people blame God for the countless death of many of this world. From children to elderly. God proved not to destroy the righteous with the wicked.As Abraham interceded so faithfully.
  • Sonja
    Abrham's intercession was amazing,desiring for the city to be spared if even there were ten righteous.
  • Jim normandin
    That as righteous as God is, that he will provide away to escape his judgement, if we will repent and turn to Him. Just as Abraham's plea for the righteous to be saved,even greater Was Christ's willingness to go to the cross for the sinner.
  • Lynn
    God is gracious and merciful! I pray he will save many in the churches from error.
  • Simon
    It 's seems God worth each and everyone in his presence that 's he said if I got ten I will not destroy may his name b praised.
  • Anonymous
    and really especially Americans should hold God well because the devil is really aiming for their downfall because the accuser will not stop
  • Bill
    I need to read my bible more,but I realize now that I AM a sinner and need all the prayers I can to ask GOD 'S forgiveness for my sins, I am fighting the gay life style, I know better but am tempted, and need help with my fight. Please pray for me.
