THE SONS OF HAM

Gen 10:6-20    The sons of Ham - a good study, of his seed and their evil ways as they exist in the world today! We see the continent of Africa beginning with Ethiopia and Egypt.

                        Out of the seed of Shem, came the father of faith - Abraham and his righteous seed Isaac, to whom God gave the promises.

Summary        The time of new beginning – in many ways this is what it is like to be born again. The old man is crucified with Christ and buried in the waters of baptism, and we have a new beginning.

We can see how the choices we make affect everything in our lives and generations to come.
