Don’t settle in haran-6
Genesis 11:31 “And Terah took Abram his son, and Lot the son of Haran his son’s son, and Sarai his daughter in law, his son Abram’s wife; and they went forth with them from Ur of the Chaldees, to go into the land of Canaan; and they came unto Haran, and dwelt there.”
Genesis 11:32 “And the days of Terah were two hundred and five years: and Terah died in Haran.”
What ever is in your life that is contrary to heaven can be changed by God. Rise up and fight the spirit of Haran. Confront it with the mandate of heaven and the integrity of the word of God.
Haran also represents temporality, fleeting or ephemeral. It may look attractive or beautiful but the issue is that, it doesn’t last. That is the major deception of Haran; it can easily convince a man that it is the real deal, whereas it is just temporal. Don’t be deceived by her beauty and temptations.
Haran is always the fake of the original. Many times it looks so much like the original that we may easily get carried away. As a matter of fact nobody will go for something fake if it doesn’t have the semblance of the original. Watch out for this deception!
Terah died in Haran but the question is; What killed him? The Bible says: “…and they came unto Haran, and dwelt there.” (Genesis 11:31)
The major issue was not getting to Haran but dwelling there! The word “dwelt” as used here means; “to remain”, “sit”, “abide” and “to marry”.
On our journey to Canaan we will often get to Haran but as long as we don’t dwell there, we won’t die there! Terah didn’t die because he got to Haran, he died because he “dwelt” there.
Dwelling connotes; remaining there, abiding and sitting there. It means becoming at ease in Haran. Don’t ever get comfortable in Haran, use it as a campsite if need be, but never as a permanent place of abode.
