Abraham

Abraham is a patriarch of the twelve tribes of Israel.  His son Isaac and his grandson Jacob both followed in his footsteps by studying and adhering to God’s Word. Abraham was told by God that his descendants would be as the Stars of Heaven.

A Bible Story – Abraham to Moses

Many people are confused about who Israel really is or was. Let’s make the crooked straight! Here is the true Bible Story from Abraham to Moses, grandson of Levi.

Many years ago, the name ‘Israel’ was given to Abraham’s grandson, Jacob. His father was Isaac. Abraham and Isaac loved God and kept His Commandments. Jacob, who had the birthright, was saved by God from his brother, Esau, who wanted to kill him. He loved God and learned of Him and this is why the LORD is called the ‘God of Israel’; ‘The Mighty One of Israel’. Because these three men, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, loved God above all, promises were made to them and a Covenant was made with them.

A Momentous Occasion – 400-Year Anniversary

It is indeed a momentous occasion for America. Four hundred years ago, on November 11, 1620, the Pilgrims came ashore on land. That is now in Provincetown on Cape Cod. The Pilgrims’ story is a central theme in the history and culture of the United States of America. The Pilgrim Fathers were that band of Puritans who founded the colony of Plymouth, Massachusetts in 1620.

A pilgrim is defined a person who journeys a long distance to some sacred place as an act of devotion. They were escaping religious persecution and going to the Promised Land.

The Pilgrims Landing

“PROVINCETOWN – The year 1620 is etched in the annals of world history. It is the year a group of English settlers known as the Pilgrims seeking religious freedom boarded their ship, Mayflower. They braved a hazardous trip across the Atlantic Ocean to establish a new home.”

Seeing this date etched in Plymouth Rock is like seeing the writing on the Wall. “Mene, mene, teckel, upharsin” in the time of Daniel spelled the end for the Babylonian king. It marks an especially important date for the people of God.
