THE HAZARDS OF QUICKSAND
 
In Acts 27 the apostle Paul was a prisoner on a ship heading towards Rome. They set off at a time of year that was known for unfavorable sailing conditions. In spite of this, the captain of the ship took his “passengers” and sailed anyway. A tempestuous wind called Euroclydon came up and the ship was caught in it. It must have been like being in a hurricane. The ship got caught up in that fierce storm and they couldn’t control it. They were about to be caught in quicksand (27:17) and that would be the end of the ship and the passengers. They had to make a quick decision. 
 
Quicksand is not a place that anyone wants to get stuck in. It “quickly” sucks in its “prey” and there is no getting out. Knowing this, they struck sail and let the ship go with the wind to avoid being destroyed in the quicksand. They threw much of the cargo overboard to lighten the load so the ship could sail without sinking. As the story goes, Paul prayed, and God revealed His plan to him. Paul, in turn, told the centurion in charge to cut the ropes and let the ship go “with the wind” or the ship would be destroyed, and they would all die.
 
Imagine, a prisoner telling the captain what to do, but nothing else had worked.   So, they listened to Paul and when the ship was in shallow water the back part broke off. They wanted to kill all of the prisoners, but the centurion wanted to save Paul, since his godly advice had saved the entire ship. Paul and the rest of the prisoners were allowed to swim ashore and were all saved.
 
Sometimes God allows storms in our lives and we are close to being sucked into the “quicksand” of circumstances. We may not realize that hanging on to things may “take us under.” We must get alone with God at this point and see if there is anything that we need to “throw overboard” to lighten our load. Perhaps it is a bad attitude or bad habit, or a sin we know we need to repent of. Regardless, God allows storms to take us safely to our destination. Just like Paul and the ship if they had stayed where they were at, they would have been swallowed up in the quicksand, we too must steer clear of those things that will bring us to destruction. 
 
Talking with God in prayer is the best way to know what to do in these rough situations. He is waiting on us to come to him in repentance, and then He will help us through the storms. Don’t hang on to things that will suck you into quicksand. Get rid of them before it is too late.
 
By the way, when Paul and the rest of the prisoners and crew were safe on an island full of barbarians, God used him in a mighty way there. It was not the plan of the ship’s captain for that to happen, but it was God’s plan. When we go with God’s plan we can never fail! He will guide us around the hazards of quicksand.

ABRAHAM PART 35
A WIFE FOR ISAAC
 
Sarah had passed away, and Abraham now 140 years old determined to find a wife for his son Isaac. He wished to preserve the integrity of his bloodline. His brother Nahor had remained in his native country of Chaldea in Mesopotamia, the southernmost part of Babylon. Abraham was aware that his brother had twelve sons, who each had children of their own. He should be able to find Isaac a wife of his brother’s lineage.
 
Abraham called his eldest servant and charged him with the mission to travel to Chaldea and find a wife for his son. It is a truly remarkable story. I will not go into detail, but you should read it for yourself in Chapter 24 of the Book of Genesis.
 
The servant set out from Canaan (Hebron) with a caravan of ten camels. Gifts (dowry) of gold, silver, gems, and fine raiment (exquisite garments) were loaded on them. Upon arriving at Nahor’s place, he stated his mission. God had by “divine appointment” already had the servant meet the chosen maiden, Rebekah, as she acted as a servant before arriving at Nahor’s place. She was Nahor’s granddaughter, the daughter of Nahor’s son Bethuel, and she was very beautiful. They made an agreement, received the dowry, and sent Rebekah with the servant along with her nurse and her damsels.
 
As they arrived back home, Isaac was out in the field in meditation. He saw the caravan approaching and went out to meet it. After the servant related the trip to him, Isaac took Rebekah as his wife. 
 
It is noteworthy that Abraham wished to keep his father’s bloodline. We see from scripture that “blood” is of utmost importance in more ways than one. Abraham did not wish his son to have a wife of the pagan Canaanites where he lived. Abraham, Chaldean by birth, would only take a wife from among his kindred. This is the bloodline that 2,000 years later would lead to the birth of Messiah, Jesus of Nazareth, the Christ.
 
It is also interesting that it was solely the Chaldeans who had a long legacy of spiritual understanding of the creator God. They understood “the times and the seasons.” We see them 1,500 years later in the court of the great Babylonian king Nebuchadnezzar as his advisors.
 
Hebrews (Jews, Israelites) Joseph and Daniel were renown for their supernatural God-given ability to interpret dreams. Daniel was the wisest man in the Bible, and he became the chief administrator of Nebuchadnezzar’s kingdom. 
 
Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob all had Chaldean wives, true to Abraham’s bloodline. Jesus descended from it and His blood has now become our bloodline by faith in His redemptive act of sacrifice on the cross at Calvary (Golgotha). His blood cleanses the sin of all who accept Him by faith, a choice of their will, and we now have life eternal through Him.
