3 First Inaugural Address This great Nation will endure as it has endured, will revive and will prosper. So, first of all, let me assert my firm belief that the only thing we have to fear is fear itself— nameless, unreasoning, unjustified terror which paralyzes needed efforts to convert retreat into advance.

4 It is not at all uncommon that fear itself, and what it provokes in us, is more dangerous to our lives than what it is we think we’re afraid of.

5 Our fear itself is often more dangerous than what we think we fear.

6 Only the beginning, only just the start… Creation Creation of man The Fall The Flood The Tower of Babel Genesis 1-11 The story of the lives of four men Genesis 12-50

7 The purpose of the Bible To explain God’s attempt to establish His kingdom on earth.

8 Genesis – the Purpose To explain Israel’s beginning and purpose in the establishment of God’s rule on earth.

9 Genesis – The Structure Genesis is divided by markers in different sections, each highlighted by a certain Hebrew word best translated by “What became of…”

10 Genesis – The Structure – 2:4-4:26 We have looked at what became of The heavens and the earth Adam Noah the Sons of Noah and specifically Shem, who brought us to… Terah and now Abram.

11 Genesis – The Structure – 6:9-8:22 The author has led us to understand both how and why Israel was a necessity and why they had to be a separate people in a separate land.

14 The Arrival – Genesis 19:1-3 Where have we seen this before?

15 The Arrival – Genesis 19:1-3 Lot was evidently a judge and was a “righteous” man who was tormented by the sexually immoral conduct of those in Sodom. (2 Peter 2:7-8)

16 The Arrival – Genesis 19:1-3 Lot was a good man, but “it was difficult to get Lot out of Sodom, and Sodom out of Lot’s family’. (BKC p. 60)

17 The Arrival – Genesis 19:1-3 He still preferred to live in Sodom in spite of what the environment. Gen. 13:10-11

18 The Confrontation – Genesis 19:4-11 This bizarre story gets even stranger when, faced with the men of the city sexually assaulting his visitors, Lot instead offers his two daughters.

19 The Reaction of Lot’s Daughters

20 The Confrontation – Genesis 19:4-11 Panic often leads us to dumb solutions. FearPanicAct Dumb

21 The Confrontation – Genesis 19:4-11 Wrong is never a great solution for wrong.

22 The Confrontation – Genesis 19:12-14 Lot’s sons-in-law weren’t buying it… “You’ve got to be kidding…”

23 Reluctant Salvation – Genesis 19:15-22 In spite of Lot’s righteous nature, he had become too attached to city and his situation.

24 Reluctant Salvation – Genesis 19:15-22 For Abraham’s sake, the angels literally had to drag Lot out and God shows His mercy to the righteous.

25 Reluctant Salvation – Genesis 19:15-22 Still, Lot’s attachment to the area and his fear kept him from the urgency he should have had.

26 Reluctant Salvation – Genesis 19:15-22 Lot’s alleged fear of the mountains didn’t keep him from them after the judgment.

27 Reluctant Salvation – Genesis 19:15-22 Why is it believers often want to stay in a corrupt,, fallen, and failed world than experience the freedom of Christ?

28 Reluctant Salvation – Genesis 19:23-29 Lot’s wife stands as an example of disobedience in the face of immediate judgment. Luke 17:31-33

29 Déjà vu – Genesis 19:30-38 Just as the days following the judgment of the flood, we see the reality of human nature.

30 Déjà vu – Genesis 19:30-38 The fearful nature of Lot shows up in his daughters.

31 Déjà vu – Genesis 19:31 Fear often causes us to exaggerate our problems, not think clearly, and act on emotion.

32 Déjà vu – Genesis 19:31 God had just delivered them and now would not be faithful to them???

33 Déjà vu – Genesis 19:31 Sodom is “reborn” in the cave.

34 Déjà vu – Genesis 19:30-38 Their incest created problems for Israel for centuries! Fear of the Ammonites led Israel to reject God as their King – 1 Sam. 12:12 While fighting them, David intead stayed home and got involved with Bathsheba – 2 Sam. 11 Solomon got wrongly involved with Ammonite women – 1 Kings 11

35 Déjà vu – Genesis 19:30-38 Their incest created problems for Israel for centuries! Balak, who tried to get Balaam to destroy Israel, was a Moabite – Num. 22 Solomon also got wrongly involved with Moabite women – 1 Kings 11

36 Déjà vu – Genesis 19:30-38 We often forget that the lifestyles we lead can impact not only our children, but their children after them for generations.

38 Or, #3… Face Everything and Rest !

39 What’s true? Is Scripture true? Is God good? Is He able? Can I trust Him? What do I believe?

40 Our fear itself is often more dangerous than what we think we fear.
