Genesis 12-50: Beginning of Israel (Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Joseph) The Four Acts of Genesis: 1. Creation 2. The Nation 3. Blessing 4. Salvation Act One: Creation • The omnipotent God creates all things • C.S. Lewis quote from Mere Christianity “When you argue against Him you are arguing against the very power that makes you able to argue at all: it is like cutting off the branch you are sitting on.” Act Two: The Natio • The sovereign God selects a people for His own • God selects a specific nation 1 Corinthians 1:26-29 Act Three: Blessing • The righteous God blesses the good and curses the evil Genesis 12:1-3 Act Four: Salvation • The gracious God saves His desperate people • Two people come to mind here: Andrew Murray and A.W. Tozer “Be assured that if God waits longer than you could wish, it is only to make the blessing doubly precious.” “It is doubtful whether God can bless a man greatly until he has hurt him deeply."
