Notes

We are searching the Scriptures systematically, word by word. Presenting all the verses in which the word 'pass' occurs gives us firstly a snapshot of the lives of Cain and Abel. Cain brought fruit as an offering to the Lord; in the field Cain killed Abel his brother after talking to him; Cain is cursed by God and cries out in anguish that everyone who finds him will kill him.

We then have highlights of the flood story beginning with the appearance on earth of beautiful 'daughters of men' who caught the eye of the 'sons of God' resulting in generations of men who were mighty but bent on evil. God, despairing of the people on earth, sent the floodwaters once Noah's family and the animals had gone into the ark. After the flood had wiped out everything on earth, God sent a wind which helped to dry up the waters. Lastly God promised the rainbow in the clouds as a sign that He would not send such a flood again.

We are then taken briefly to the plain in Shinar where the tower of Babel will be built. Moving swiftly on, we see Abram and his family on the move, at God's command, and reaching Shechem. From there they head for Egypt where Abram pretends that the beautiful Sarai is not his wife but his sister, to protect himself from potential suitors. And we are told of the vision God gave to Abram to convince him that one day he would possess the land of Canaan.

Time passes. We are outside Abram's tent in the heat of the day and hear him speak graciously to the three strangers. What a contrast between this and the behaviour of Lot's daughters who seduce their father. Then Abraham repeats his act of deceitfulness with regard to the relationship between him and Sarah.

Our extract now begins to focus on Isaac, Abraham's son. Firstly God tests if Abraham would be willing to sacrifice Isaac on command. Then we hear that Abraham's brother, Nahor, has a family - a prelude to Abraham's servant finding a wife for Isaac amongst Nahor's granddaughters.

Despite having God's blessing, Isaac tells Abimelech the same lie as his father did before him - that his wife is his sister. And so the cheating goes on, from father to son. Jacob, Isaac's younger son, pretends to be Esau to get the blessing. We move on to Jacob's meeting with Rachel, his cousin and future wife, and his uncle Laban's welcome. But after working seven years for Rachel, Jacob himself is cheated and given Rachel's sister Leah instead.

The word 'pass' usually occurs as part of the phrase 'come to pass'. 'It shall come to pass that...' predicts what will happen. 'It came to pass that...' tells what has already happened. This study reveals that man is constantly pulled between good and evil and we see that every wrong decision has a consequence. In the Book of Revelation, God reveals Jesus, the Messiah, making it plain to His servants what is about to happen to mankind and his world.
