The Dangers and Effects of the World Part 1

August 9, 2023

Join us in Genesis 38.  Last time we heard a part of the story of Joseph, and his brothers selling him into slavery.  Today we’ll pay particular attention to the older brother Judah.  As you’ll see he made a series of very bad decisions that would lead to consequences.  But through it all we’ll be reminded of God’s amazing grace.  I think you’ll find it encouraging in light of your sin-stained past.

We’re in Genesis chapter 37 today, where Joseph finds himself in a pit!  But soon he would be in a palace.  And it is a brilliant reminder of how God uses everything in His children’s lives for good.  Keep that in mind the next time your life is in the pits.

We’re about to continue our study in Genesis.  And we’ve just entered into the section about Joseph’s life in chapter 37.  As you’ll hear in a moment he’s about to have a dream that disturbed his brothers greatly.  So much so, they wanted to kill him.  It stands out in scripture as a reminder of what envy can do to us.

This weekend on Sound Doctrine we'll give you a glimpse into the spiritual realm.  Pastor Jeff Johnson is going to begin Daniel chapter ten.  Daniel is about to receive another vision, but before he does he spends a considerable amount of time praying and fasting.  And the vision he received was truly amazing.  Pastor Jeff believes it communicates something about prayer to us today.

Pastor Jeff is leading us on an inspiring and challenging study through the book of Genesis, and today we’re going to look at the vision given to Joseph in chapter thirty-seven.  One might think his family would be thrilled upon hearing what God was communicating to Joseph.  But there was a far different reaction as we’re about to see.  Through it all we see what envy will do to us.

We’ll join pastor Jeff Johnson in Genesis chapter 36 today, as we again take a look at the folly of the flesh.  Pastor Jeff makes some observations about the flesh like how it grows, it’s stubborn, persistent and powerful!  But we won’t stop there.  You’ll soon see what we are to do about it and how to gain victory over it.

Today we enter into Genesis chapter 36.  In this Christian life we’re constantly battling the world, the flesh, and the devil.  But it’s the flesh we want to pay close attention to in our time together today.  Pastor Jeff will draw attention to Esau, who is a type of the flesh.  Through this helpful study you’ll learn what it takes to be victorious in the battle.

Today on Sound Doctrine we get back into Genesis.  We left off in chapter 35, where God told Jacob to go back to Bethel, the place where he met him for the first time.  Jacob made the choice to return to his first love.   But now he’s going to deal with tremendous loss.   Few things in life are as heart-wrenching as the death of your spouse or parent!  Jacob would deal with both in this chapter of his life.

Do you believe God keeps His promises? I think every Christian would answer yes to that question, but do we really live like we believe it? Today we’ll see a shining example of God keeping His promises - even when it involves a man who really blew it. We’ll look at Genesis chapter thirty-five today, as we see more proof of a loving and faithful God.  You’ll also be encouraged to return to your first love when you’ve been drifting.

You’ve heard the term “Hell on earth?”  That’s a pretty accurate way of describing what we’ll look at today on Sound Doctrine.  One day God will say enough is enough, it’s time for judgement to begin for those who have rejected the Messiah.  We hope today’s study helps you obtain an eternal vision, and if necessary receive Christ.

Parents shirking their responsibilities and compromising in their walk… it’s not hard to see what that leads to.  Very often children who do the very same.  Today on Sound Doctrine we’ll take another look at Jacob’s family. It was a mess, and Jacob isn’t leading as he should, raising the kids in deceit.  And the results of this compromise was nothing short of tragic.
