The Abrahamic covenant is essential to rightly understanding all that comes after it in Scripture. It is important that we understand it in its context in Genesis and in its wider canonical context. This is, Lord willing, the first of two weeks on God's covenant with Abraham. You can watch the message here.
In today's message we are going to learn something about that mighty city called Babylon, which symbolically, and cryptically, and prophetically, stands for the consummation and the distillation of all evil. And pay attention, because “The Rise and Fall of Babylon” is not something that just happened in the dark, musty past, or something that's going to happen way off yonder in the future. It deals with realities that we are facing every day. And we're going to find out something about the person and work of the devil as we study here in Genesis chapters 10 and 11. We are going to learn about this wicked city of Babylon, which was both the cradle and the grave of all false religion, and the devil's kingdom. Click on the link below to hear a message on how Babylon is destined to fall. Just as this ancient tower of Babel crumpled so long ago, we find that the final full-blown Babylon is coming down; it is crashing down. And I want to tell you something: You may not have ever realized this, but the first time that the word “alleluia” is used in all the New Testament is after Babylon falls. You won't find the word “alleluia” used any other time. But it is after Babylon falls that the “Alleluia Chorus” begins. Rev 19:1-3 1 And after these things I heard a great voice of much people in heaven, saying, Alleluia; Salvation, and glory, and honour, and power, unto the Lord our God: KJV Rev 19:6 6 And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thunderings, saying, Alleluia: for the Lord God omnipotent reigneth. KJV This is a live recording of The Master's Class Bible Study at LifeChange Church Wichita, KS. Amen.
Continuing our series on Genesis, in today's message Pastor Nathaniel uncovers the problem, the hope, the opportunity and the promise revealed to us in Genesis 11 & 12. Here the story of tower of Babel concludes and we encounter God's promise to Abraham and his response.

"Thy kingdom come, thy will be done" is a prayer almost everyone knows. What we often ignore is that we are building our own kingdoms in direct opposition to God's. When our little kingdoms come into conflict with God and His will, there is only ever one outcome. The Almighty God, even for our own benefit, will not let any kingdom stand against His. This week Pastor Taylor Gabbert talks about the tower of Babel in Genesis 11:1-9. Get Connected! https://linktr.ee/reachtulsa
In the coming weeks we will embark on a journey into Genesis 12-25 and trace Abraham's life. Abraham is the Patriarch for the world's three major religions: Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. Abraham is called the “man of faith” because he believed God and it was counted to him as righteousness. Abraham believed the promises of God enough to leave his place and people to go to the place God promised to show him. It wasn't easy, though. Throughout Abraham's journey we see times marked by fear and failure, long-suffering anticipation and sorrow, and times when he tried to make God's plan happen in his own strength. For all who follow Christ, Abraham's story is our story. Abraham is a key figure in Redemptive History, the one God called to be the father of nations, and through whom all people would be blessed. Scripture often calls him “the man of faith,” and he is the father for all who believe (Gal. 3:7-9). And so, Father Abraham is our shared ancestor we are sons and daughters of the man of faith. On Sunday we begin with Genesis 11:27-12:20. As our story begins, we meet Abram and Sarai (their names get tweaked later on). In a major step of faith, Abram and Sarai heard God's call to leave all they had and all they knew to go to a place that God would show them, with the promise that God would do great things through them. Their faith in following God's initial call didn't hold up perfectly, though. When famine hit, Abram spiraled into a series of bigger and bigger mistakes. Right at the top of this Journey of Faith, we are confronted with the competing tension of faith and fear. Like Abram and Sarai, we have heard God's promises, but reality can make it hard to believe.

The whole head is sick, and the whole heart faint. From the sole of the foot even to the head, there is no soundness in it, but bruises and sores and raw wounds; they are not pressed out or bound up or softened with oil.—We have all become like one who is unclean, and all our righteous deeds are like a polluted garment.—I know that nothing good dwells in me, that is, in my flesh.—You were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.—All glorious is the princess in her chamber.—“Perfect through the splendor that I had bestowed on you, declares the Lord God.”—Let the favor of the Lord our God be upon us. “They have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.”—So that he might present the church to himself in splendor, without spot or wrinkle or any such thing, that she might be holy and without blemish.—You have been filled in him.

Why will you continue to rebel?

(ESV) Isaiah 64:6 (Listen) 6 We have all become like one who is unclean, and all our righteous deeds are like a polluted garment. We all fade like a leaf, and our iniquities, like the wind, take us away. (ESV) Ezekiel 16:14 (Listen) 14 And your renown went forth among the nations because of your beauty, for it was perfect through the splendor that I had bestowed on you, declares the Lord GOD.

The Jordan Valley was well watered everywhere like the garden of the Lord…. Now the men of Sodom were wicked, great sinners against the Lord.—And I applied my heart to know wisdom and to know madness and folly. I perceived that this also is but a striving after wind. For in much wisdom is much vexation, and he who increases knowledge increases sorrow.—I made great works. I built houses and planted vineyards for myself…. I also gathered for myself silver and gold…. Then I considered all that my hands had done and the toil I had expended in doing it, and behold, all was vanity and a striving after wind.—“If anyone thirsts, let him come to me and drink.”—He satisfies the longing soul, and the hungry soul he fills with good things. Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth.

(ESV) Genesis 13:10–11 (Listen) 10 And Lot lifted up his eyes and saw that the Jordan Valley was well watered everywhere like the garden of the LORD, like the land of Egypt, in the direction of Zoar. (This was before the LORD destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah.) 11 So Lot chose for himself all the Jordan Valley, and Lot journeyed east. Thus they separated from each other. (ESV) Genesis 13:13 (Listen) 13 Now the men of Sodom were wicked, great sinners against the LORD.

7/23/23 Living Stones Church - Pine Trees: Our passion at Living Stones Church is to be the kind of church described in the Bible: A Culture of Faith. Together we love to actively pursue Spirit and Truth.
We frequently fail to seek God's guidance. As a result, we make poor decisions and find ourselves in difficult situations. Even when we are serving God, we are frequently distracted by earthly things and deviate from the path that God has set for us. Pastor Mark explains in today's message how God desires your complete devotion while serving Him. God has a plan for your life that He wants to see through. While the enemy may send you many distractions in the form of friends, earthly desires, or even family members. But you can put all of those distractions aside and make God your top priority, fully committing to His plan for us.
Even though we have our own plans and goals that we want to achieve, God has a different opinion of us. He has a brighter future plan for us that exceeds our ultimate dream. However, due to various distractions, we frequently fail to see God's plan in our lives. Something always seems to hold us back. Because the enemy does not want you to succeed, He brings distractions in the form of friends, earthly desires, and even family members. Pastor Mark tells you in today's message how God wants you to leave all your distractions behind and follow Him with all your heart. Do you wonder who or what's holding you back today?
We all have goals in life as humans. Some of us aspire to pursue our passions as careers, while others choose to follow in the footsteps of someone they admire. And in the pursuit of our dreams, we frequently make mistakes in our lives as a result of bad decisions that we made. We frequently fail in the trials of life. Pastor Mark tells you in today's message how God sees the best in us and how He has the power to change you and make you an entirely different person. Your dreams and desires will be limited, but God sees the best version of yourself in you. He intends for your life to serve a purpose. All you have to do is allow God to transform your life and make you whole again.
We, humans, are very concerned with preserving our legacy and lineage. Parents frequently worry about having a son to carry on their family name. We are often so focused on maintaining our reputation that we fail to see the bigger picture. Pastor Mark tells you how you can carry on the greatest name in the world, Jesus, in today's message! When you decide to follow Jesus, you forget about keeping your name and instead work to spread the name of Jesus to those who haven't yet met Him. How can you, as a believer, lift up the greatest name on the planet and let others know what Jesus has done for you and for them on the cross?
