Studying Genesis in the series Lesson 8, may the Holy Spirit be the speaker to your heart.

The Topic today is: "Rebekkah's freedom of choice as wife for Isaac".

The Opening Hymn will be 229 "Spirit of the Living God"

The Sabbath School Quarterly, downloadable from in the Teacher's Edition is on page 102 and for the laymen edition or Standard Edition, on page 68.

The site allows anyone, anywhere to read the lesson in their own language. Choose your own language to see God speaking also to your heart.

---Again dr. Doukhan outlines the role of the Freedom of Choice of a woman in Ancient times.

---Gone is the accusation of pro-woman ordinationists and femninine activists saying that in Ancient times under the patriarchal system the women had no power for themselves.

---Rebekkah did. Isaac is going to find out about that.

---Doukhan thought that God is still in control even though we do not choose Him.

---Ultimately yes, it might be better to bring Satan and his role also in.

---Anyone who is not obedient to God's wishes in their lives, opens the way for another force to take control of their events. The evil ones.

---There is no mid-way where one can be neutral. You cannot say, I do not live for God fully but I do not want Satan either.

---Hell is going to be a reality and one better open the eyes about that reality sooner than later.

---There are many Adventists kids who are living currently semi-agnostic lives.

They come to church on "high festivals" with mom and dad, but the rest of the year they live the same as the world.

---It would be irresponsible to say that "God understands" and is in control anyway because of His love and mercy.

---What flows from the cross is not honey, but precious suffering blood. One has to be worthy of the price He paid for us.

---That is God's will. It is a contested will. He also honors Freedom of Choice but the opposition does not.
