...and we can ride, go cars and we canplay Arcade Games and we can go bowling and we can play laser tag. There'se, somuch fun. We're going to have a glance, and on that day I left work early and Igot home and and we got Gavin and all the other kids and we wet picked up hisfriends and off. We drove to phenopolits and we got there and wepulled into Penopolis an we noticed and there's more cars here than normaltoday. There's a flagmen outside and he waped us down, and he said, are youwith so and so company Andi said no, he said. Well, I'm sorry. This is a private party for the UNTONO. I said on a Friday night at Pinopolis,a private party said: Yes, they rented it out and I just was devastated because I'mknew even though it wasn't intentional. I lived T my little boy.

I told him, we do something and wedidn't do it. One of the truths that I found in that is that I'm a center, even when I don't Monto be even when Ihave good motives. I miss the lar. I make mistakes, as do we all see im, and this is areminder that God teaches us in Genesis to day where, in Genesis ChapterFifteen, our reading for the day was genesis twelve through fifteen, buthere in Genesis, fifteen God reveals to Abre this incredible truth that even with the purse of hearts, weall see we all make mistakes. I want to read versus five through seventeen ofGenesis: Chapter Fifteen, the Bible says, and he took him outsideand said now, Look Toward The heavens...

...and count the stars. If you are able tocount them, they send to him so Shal your descendants bee. Then he believed in the Lord God Reckon it to him for righteousness,and he said to him. I am the Lord who brought you out of Erh of the Caldis togive you this man to possess, and he said Oh Mor God. How may I know I willpossess so. I said the y bring me a three yearold hepper, a three year old female go to three year old Ramna Turtle, Dov anyoung pigeon. Then he brought all these to him and he cut him into and Lai eachhalf opposite of one another. They could not cut the birds, the birds ofpray came down from the carcases or upon the carcasses, but ABRAAM drovethem away. When the Sun was going down on a deepsleep, fellon ebor and the whole terror...

...in great darkness fell. Poni. God saidAbram not for certain that your descendants will be strangers in a landthat is not theirs where they will be enslaved in a press four hundred years, but I will also judge the nation whomthey will serve and afterward. They will come out from with manypossessions. As for you, you shall go your fathers and peate. You will beburied at a good old age. Then in the fourth generation they will return. Youfor the iniquity of the Amerites is not yet complete and it came about when thesun had said that it was very dark and behold there appeared a smoking, ovenand a flaming torch which passed between these pieces. On that day, the Lord made a covenantwith Abrap what a powerful passage first readingwe don't understand, what's going on, God says Abram Abram. Basically I'mgoing to be your God and your and...

...your dessinnants will be my people and you're going to possess this lanand abraam says in verse e Ou Lord. How will this happen now? The question in verse is not aquestion of. Can you do it? God were already told that Abrambelieved God wasnit a question of Cango. Do it. It was a question of how can I have a relationship with you, I'm SIP? How can I experience a relationship with theonlife and to answer that question Lov saysAbril go get these ATS COMD of into now. This would have been known as a bloodcovenant of that day. Thet was a covenant where two individuals couldmake with each other. Abraham would...

...have been familiar with it and you'.Take these animals and you'd cut them in half and you'd, lay one on one sideand one on another side and allow that blood to kind of drain into a littleditch. If you will- and you stand on one end and the person that you weremaking the blood covenant with Wul stand on the other and then Youd start walking towardseach other through the bood and as you're walking towards eachother. You would say if I break this covenant with you maywhat happened to these animals happened to me and you meet in the middle andyou'd agree to each other. We're not going to break this Cupe! That'sexactly what God was doing here. He was giving a blood covenant with a and God was saying to April Abrel, I'm going to make this covent with you,and this is how I'm going to have a...

...relationship with, and then we see there in verse.Seventeen that God passes through walks through in between these deadanimals through the blood Abram, doesn't move. There's no meeting in the Middle God goes all the way through to meetApril, where he is, God is saying very clearly: Abrem you're not going to be able tokeep this copanant Abram you're, going to see it AbramYoure right, there's! No way you can have a relationship with me on your andbecause you're going to fail over and over again you're going to se, but I'll tell you what I'm going to do, I'm going to walk through and I'm going to keep my work because Ican't break it and when you break your word to me,...

...may what happened to these APPs happened to me. How was it that God could have arelationship with Abram? How was it that God could have a relationship withsimple man very clearly by saying April, you can on your Lin, but I will I can'tbreak my word and when you break your word I'll die so that we can have this fellowship.What an amazing truth from the word of God. God reveal that the waysinful mancould dwell in the presence of God in the promiseen was through God's Pole, blood. There's no such thing as it's false. There's, no such thing as a tiny lik every scene wee an in calls Jesus his precious Blod.

Oh, what I SAM! Oh, what a God that brings us togetherto have this amazing relationship with don't you join MOU in just thankyiu himfor that butther. We think you for Jesus.
