Today, I will start a series of programs about the history of mankind as the Bible reveals it to us. The church was very gracious in housing us in a beautiful location in Lake Shastina, where we always enjoy a gorgeous view of Mount Shasta from our porch. The mountain reminds me of mountains in the Bible from where God often revealed himself and his Word to man.

We begin today with the account of creation in Genesis Ch. 1-3. In these chapters, we are told that God created the universe and man himself. It was a “very good” creation, perfect in everything. Even the man and woman he created were perfectly holy and righteous. They had no sin. They were placed by God in a lush garden called Eden, where they had pleasure in all kinds of trees, plants, fruits and animals. In short, it was a literal paradise. Also, Eden sits on a mountain, since there are four rivers flowing down from it.

    REply to your “8 things I learned from…”

    I can’t seem to leave a reply on that older post, so I’ll just leave it under this one.

    I found a great depth to this article, and felt I should say this, just in the hopes you continue to write comparable deep insights.

    I believe your analysis on why God was going to kill Moses strongly illustrates the image of “God bending low” to save man. Reading your own insights, I was also driven to understand, that the covenant God had made through circumcision, was already Him showing mercy. By not recognizing the covenant with Moses, and moved to kill Moses as result, shows that the covenant is more of a “reminder” to God, or a “sign” of His people; similar to the reminder of the blood sprinkled on the, later, High Priests in the Holiest of Holies. The need for reminders illustrates the vast distance separating God and His people, a distance that is not remotely appreciated, especially (obviously) in most churches today.
