Bible Talks from Genesis



The Promise Of Blessing

Preached on June 28, 2020
Speaker:
Bible Text: Genesis 12

Since the promise God made back in Genesis 3 that a Saviour would crush Satan’s head by overcoming sin and death, no mention of this Saviour has been heard… till here in this passage. God speaks to a man named Abram to tell him the promise of blessing to the world will come through him. This lands the promise firmly in the world we know, as we locate this promise in a man from Iraq, father of Israel, and ancestor of our Lord Jesus Christ.


The God Who Promises

Preached on June 28, 2020
Speaker:
Bible Text: Genesis 12:1-5

Just as God spoke a certain word during the uncertain times of Abram, God speaks a word of certainty today. The promises he made to Abram in Genesis 12 are still being fulfilled today. What God promises, God does.


Tower of Babel

Preached on June 21, 2020
Speaker:
Bible Text: Genesis 10-11

The end of the flood marks another new beginning for humanity but, all is not well. The human heart remains unchanged by the flood. In these chapters we see the humanity gather collectively in opposition to God, and how God responds to their evil in both judgement and grace.


The Price of Fame

Preached on June 21, 2020
Speaker:
Bible Text: Genesis 11:1-9

By Genesis 11 humans collectively decide to take on God by making a name for themselves in building a tower that reached the heavens and resisted the command to fill the earth. The price for fame is languages which keep us apart.


The Flood – Severe Justice and Divine Mercy

Preached on June 14, 2020
Speaker:
Bible Text: Genesis 6-9

Since mankind fell from the presence of God because of their sin, the world was in a moral free-fall until God stepped in and brought very severe justice. Of all the people in the world, only 8 were saved, and as Noah and his family escape the flood we see a form of mercy that will characterise God’s grace until he acts to save the world in the person of Jesus.


The Flood of Grace

Preached on June 14, 2020
Speaker: ,
Bible Text: Genesis 6-9

Is God on our side? Is He still committed to us? A look at sin, judgement and grace in light of Noah’s flood.


Cain And Abel

Preached on June 7, 2020
Speaker:
Bible Text: Genesis 4

You’d think sin would take some time to settle into people’s hearts and minds before we saw murder, bigotry, racism, arrogance and pride, but that’s not the case. The first family is hit with the first murder as the older brother Cain kills his brother Abel out of jealousy and anger. God’s judgment is felt in this passage but not as much as his grace, which we’ll see is extended to Abel, Cain and now to us.


Adam Raised A Cain

Preached on June 7, 2020
Speaker:
Bible Text: Genesis 4:1-15

In Genesis 4 Cain kills his brother Abel and with it sin spreads and intensifies as does the judgment of God. God's grace is found in the blood of Christ which speaks a better word than the blood of Abel.


The Fall of Mankind

Preached on May 31, 2020
Speaker:
Bible Text: Genesis 3

Have you ever wondered what went wrong in the world? Why there is so much pain, sickness, suffering, and death? Genesis 3 shows us how mankind fell from the presence of God into chaos and disorder, as an enemy is introduced to us in the form of a serpent.


The Fall From Grace

Preached on May 31, 2020
Speaker:
Bible Text: Genesis 3:1-11

In Genesis 3 we see how our first parents, Adam and Eve introduced sin and death in the world. We explore how Satan sowed seeds of doubt resulting in human rebellion and how Christ came to undo what Adam did.
