Genesis 26 Observations
Genesis 26:3, 23 YAHUAH is the covenant keeper. YAHUAH is covenantal.
Genesis 26:12-14 YAHUAH is Provider.
Genesis 26:3, 12 Compare Mark 10:30 “…with persecutions.” Notice the connection. YAH said to stay “in this land.” Then He went on to say, “I will be with thee, and will bless thee.” He also spoke of Isaac’s seed. So, what Isaac did—obedience—affected his children and his children’s children and so forth (cp. Ex. 20:4,5).
For us, YAH’s blessings are in the place appointed for us. Our objective is to be where He says. Many of us are in place that YAHUAH did not tell us to be and because of our choices and situations, we cannot be anywhere different. In this case, we acknowledge our sin and seek to be obedient to YAH wherever we are now.
During Judah’s captivity in Babylon, Jeremiah wrote to them saying to seek the peace of the city where they were carried away captive because of their disobedience. Yet, Abba promised to bless them if they began again to obey Him and to honor Him where they were at that time.
The same is for us. Our situations may not be ideal. Yet, we can obey His Word and be righteous representatives of YAH right where we are.
Though in ways that we may not expect, YAH will bless us in the place of obedience (Jer. 29:11).
I invite you to comment below with additional observations from your reading.
Please, please comment below if you see ANYTHING that is contrary to Scripture that I have presented in these Scripture Observations. I want Truth and when I see that I have made a mistake, I want to correct that. No chips on my shoulders here.
I also ask one thing, though. Please, please present your thoughts in the context of two or three Scripture references, not just one (see Deuteronomy 17:6; Matthew 18:16; 2 Corinthians 13:1). One verse (especially one verse out of context) will not be received as evidence. I am just not one to interpret Scripture or accept other’s interpretation of Scripture apart from the written Word of YAH found in the whole counsel of His written Word.
I try my best to limit the use of the precursor words of “I think” or “I believe” without Scripture to back up my “I thinks” and “I believes.” Not only on this site, but be on the lookout anywhere else for excessive “I think” and “I believe” statements presented as Truth, with no Scriptural evidence to back up the statements.
The written Word of YAHUAH is the standard, the vanguard against deception which as you know is quite rampant these days.
