(Deuteronomy 30:6)
And the LORD thy God will circumcise thine heart, and the heart of thy seed, to love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, that thou mayest live.

***************************************************************************

This entire set of chapters is really all about the establishment of the nation of Israel, through whom the Messiah Jesus Christ would come to save all mankind from their sins. Israel was given the Law and the Church was given Grace. The Law could not save, as is evident in the verse given above, combined with many others in the Old Testament.

To the Jews, the circumcision was something you just did to a male child at eight days to be obedient to God's command in order to have fellowship, presuming that this keeping of the Law was the means of justification with God. God here is stating that they missed the real point of that circumcision: The heart.

Deuteronomy 30:4
If any of thine be driven out unto the outmost parts of heaven, from thence will the LORD thy God gather thee, and from thence will he fetch thee:

(Genesis 13:1)
And Abram went up out of Egypt, he, and his wife, and all that he had, and Lot with him, into the south.
  • Can read he "escaped with his life and his wife"
  • Abram had gone "down into Egypt" earlier
  • Everything he had was a lot to move, and it all was always with him
  • His wife Sarai's names is not mentioned, but his nephew is called by name
(Genesis 13:2)
And Abram was very rich in cattle, in silver, and in gold.

  • A man's wealth (Abram's here) was, in those days, also measured in cattle, livestock-not just precious metals
  • That said, Abram was very wealthy in earth's goods
(Genesis 13:3-4)
And he went on his journeys from the south even to Bethel, unto the place where his tent had been at the beginning, between Bethel and Hai; Unto the place of the altar, which he had made there at the first: and there Abram called on the name of the LORD.
  • Bethel =BETH+EL or "House of God"
  • He returns to the same spot as earlier
  • To the altar and back to worship the LORD
  • Perhaps this is because God showed him his power and lack of faith in Egypt?
  • Perhaps he recognized that God spared his life in Egypt?
Genesis 12:8
And he removed from thence unto a mountain on the east of Bethel, and pitched his tent, having Bethel on the west, and Hai on the east: and there he builded an altar unto the LORD, and called upon the name of the LORD.

(Genesis 13:5)
And Lot also, which went with Abram, had flocks, and herds, and tents.
  • The flocks are provisions of eggs and meat
  • The herds provide meat, skins and milk
  • The tent is shelter for temporary,nomadic living
  • So........flock+ herds+tents=wealth, food, clothing and shelter
  • This may also imply things are greener there than today, so that they did not have to haul the provender (food) for the animals also.
  • Lot had a wealthy uncle, and himself was not of mean measure
  • Just missing..... what? W-A-T-E-R
PROV'ENDER, n. [L. vivo, to live, and from vivanda; Eng.viand.]
  1. Dry food for beasts, usually meal, or a mixture of meal and cut straw or hay. In a more general sense, it may signify dry food of any kind.
  2. Provisions; meat; food. [Not used of food for man in New England.]
(Genesis 13:6)
And the land was not able to bear them, that they might dwell together: for their substance was great, so that they could not dwell together.
  • God's power and sovereignty would have to be demonstrated
  • Green as it may have been, the limit of the land was reached by their wealth of livestock
  • This is by divine design. Had God not allowed them to have too much for the land, they may not have separated
  • Had they not separated, Lot would not have been living in the land of God's future judgment
  • Therefore, had he not dwelled there, God would not have shown Himself as strong when He destroyed it because the sin is clearly seen, plus the salvation of Lot
  • Today, we can live on one lot with two large houses and have a ton of money in the bank
  • The flocks and herds take up lots of space so, as wealthy men, their combined wealth was apparently too massive
(Genesis 13:7)
And there was a strife between the herdmen of Abram's cattle and the herdmen of Lot's cattle: and the Canaanite and the Perizzite dwelled then in the land.
  • Too many people and livestock on one resource=strife, because of man's sin
  • This is caused by man's heart and lack of faith, not by the lack of the resources
  • There was enough space, so it was really about the quality of the land
  • God simply used this to perform His will
  • Again. Ultimate goal is to judge Sodom and Gomorrah and create Israel.
  • Overcrowding brings out the flesh (sin nature) in all of us.
  • It is not the overcrowding that is the problem, nor is it the lack of resources, nor the competition for them either. It is S-I-N, and natural to mankind.
(Genesis 13:8)
And Abram said unto Lot, Let there be no strife, I pray thee, between me and thee, and between my herdmen and thy herdmen; for we be brethren.
  • "Blessed are the peacemakers"........
  • Fact: The ONLY way that Abram can say to Lot (his nephew) "we be brethren" was if they were both believers.
(Matthew 5:9)
Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.

(Genesis 13:9)
Is not the whole land before thee? separate thyself, I pray thee, from me: if thou wilt take the left hand, then I will go to the right; or if thou depart to the right hand, then I will go to the left.
  • The only way to solve strife with this many different personalities is often to just go separate ways
  • This is true of relatives and friends alike
  • Abram humbles himself and lets Lot choose his location
  • Abram wants peace before seniority with his brother/nephew
(Genesis 13:10)
And Lot lifted up his eyes, and beheld all the plain of Jordan, that it was well watered every where, before the LORD destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah, even as the garden of the LORD, like the land of Egypt, as thou comest unto Zoar.
  • The grass is greener on the other side of the fence, but only the grassis, and that is always temporary
  • Flock, herds, tents=wealth, food, clothing and shelter
  • Just missing..... what?WATER!
(Proverbs 14:12)
There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.

(Genesis 13:11-12)
Then Lot chose him all the plain of Jordan; and Lot journeyed east: and they separated themselves the one from the other.Abram dwelled in the land of Canaan, and Lot dwelled in the cities of the plain, and pitched his tent toward Sodom.
  • Lot's needs are all met. He is home....for now
  • He does not build a house, but is in temporary shelter
  • "the plain" must be the Plains of Jordan
  • Does he perhaps suspect he will not be here long? Or perhaps God has that also in His plans

THE PLAINS OF JORDAN

(1 Kings 4:12)
Baana the son of Ahilud; to him pertained Taanach and Megiddo, and all Bethshean, which is by Zartanah beneath Jezreel, from Bethshean to Abelmeholah, even unto the place that is beyond Jokneam:

(1 Kings 7:46)
In the plain of Jordan did the king cast them, in the clay ground between Succoth and Zarthan. (Joshua 3:16-17)
That the waters which came down from above stood and rose up upon an heap very far from the city Adam, that is beside Zaretan: and those that came down toward the sea of the plain, even the salt sea, failed, and were cut off: and the people passed over right against Jericho.
And the priests that bare the ark of the covenant of the LORD stood firm on dry ground in the midst of Jordan, and all the Israelites passed over on dry ground, until all the people were passed clean over Jordan.

(Genesis 13:13)
But the men of Sodom were wicked and sinners before the LORD exceedingly.
  • The mainstream, politically correct pastors in America have fallen for the old lie, "This was not about homosexuality, but lack of hospitality"
  • The completely, purposefully ignored context of the entirety of Scripture demands that it is homosexuality, not "lack of hospitality"

ONE SINGLE VERSE USED TO SUPPORT HOSPITALITY

Ezekiel 16:49-50
Behold, this was the iniquity of thy sister Sodom, pride, fulness of bread, and abundance of idleness was in her and in her daughters, neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy. And they were haughty, and committed abomination before me: therefore I took them away as I saw good.

HAUGHTY, a. hau'ty. [from haught.]
  1. Proud and disdainful; having a high opinion of one's self, with some contempt for others; lofty and arrogant; supercilious.
    His wife was a woman of a haughty and imperious nature.
    A haughty spirit goeth before a fall. Prov 16.
  2. Proceeding from excessive pride, or pride mingled with contempt; manifesting pride and disdain; as a haughty air or walk.
  3. Proud and imperious; as a haughty nation.

Today we say,"Gay Pride" as in "Gay Pride Day", or "Gay Pride Parade"

2 Peter 2:7
And delivered just Lot, vexed with the filthy conversation of the wicked:

Jude 1:7
Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.
  • Fornication: Sex outside of marriage
  • Strange Flesh (Romans 1)
  • "Exceedingly"
EXCEE'DINGLY, adv.

  • None of the countries around her today became nations until the 20th century, and were carved out by U.N. mandates

THE ORIGINAL BORDERS OF ISRAEL

(Numbers 34)
And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, Command the children of Israel, and say unto them, When ye come into the land of Canaan; (this is the land that shall fall unto you for an inheritance, even the land of Canaan with the coasts thereof:) Then your south quarter shall be from the wilderness of Zin along by the coast of Edom, and your south border shall be the outmost coast of the salt sea eastward: And your border shall turn from the south to the ascent of Akrabbim, and pass on to Zin: and the going forth thereof shall be from the south to Kadeshbarnea, and shall go on to Hazaraddar, and pass on to Azmon: And the border shall fetch a compass from Azmon unto the river of Egypt, and the goings out of it shall be at the sea. And as for the western border, ye shall even have the great sea for a border: this shall be your west border. And this shall be your north border: from the great sea ye shall point out for you mount Hor: From mount Hor ye shall point out your border unto the entrance of Hamath; and the goings forth of the border shall be to Zedad: And the border shall go on to Ziphron, and the goings out of it shall be at Hazarenan: this shall be your north border.
And ye shall point out your east border from Hazarenan to Shepham: And the coast shall go down from Shepham to Riblah, on the east side of Ain; and the border shall descend, and shall reach unto the side of the sea of Chinnereth eastward: And the border shall go down to Jordan, and the goings out of it shall be at the salt sea: this shall be your land with the coasts thereof round about.
And Moses commanded the children of Israel, saying, This is the land which ye shall inherit by lot, which the LORD commanded to give unto the nine tribes, and to the half tribe:
For the tribe of the children of Reuben according to the house of their fathers, and the tribe of the children of Gad according to the house of their fathers, have received their inheritance; and half the tribe of Manasseh have received their inheritance:
The two tribes and the half tribe have received their inheritance on this side Jordan near Jericho eastward, toward the sunrising. And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
*********

These are the names of the men which shall divide the land unto you: Eleazar the priest, and Joshua the son of Nun. And ye shall take one prince of every tribe, to divide the land by inheritance. And the names of the men are these: Of the tribe of Judah, Caleb the son of Jephunneh. And of the tribe of the children of Simeon, Shemuel the son of Ammihud.
Of the tribe of Benjamin, Elidad the son of Chislon. And the prince of the tribe of the children of Dan, Bukki the son of Jogli.
The prince of the children of Joseph, for the tribe of the children of Manasseh, Hanniel the son of Ephod.
And the prince of the tribe of the children of Ephraim, Kemuel the son of Shiphtan.
And the prince of the tribe of the children of Zebulun, Elizaphan the son of Parnach.
And the prince of the tribe of the children of Issachar, Paltiel the son of Azzan.
And the prince of the tribe of the children of Asher, Ahihud the son of Shelomi.
And the prince of the tribe of the children of Naphtali, Pedahel the son of Ammihud.

These are they whom the LORD commanded to divide the inheritance unto the children of Israel in the land of Canaan.
