Genesis 46:1–7 (ESV)

Joseph Brings His Family to Egypt

46 So Israel took his journey with all that he had and came to Beersheba, and offered sacrifices to the God of his father Isaac. And God spoke to Israel in visions of the night and said, “Jacob, Jacob.” And he said, “Here I am.” Then he said, “I am God, the God of your father. Do not be afraid to go down to Egypt, for there I will make you into a great nation. I myself will go down with you to Egypt, and I will also bring you up again, and Joseph’s hand shall close your eyes.”

Then Jacob set out from Beersheba. The sons of Israel carried Jacob their father, their little ones, and their wives, in the wagons that Pharaoh had sent to carry him. They also took their livestock and their goods, which they had gained in the land of Canaan, and came into Egypt, Jacob and all his offspring with him, his sons, and his sons’ sons with him, his daughters, and his sons’ daughters. All his offspring he brought with him into Egypt.

 

God tells Jacob (Israel): “Do not be afraid to go down to Egypt, for there I will make you into a great nation.”  Our God is not confined to boundaries, cities, states, countries.  Our God is God and the creator of the Universe.  We confess that “I believe in God, the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth.”  His is the Creator of all things.  So the God of Israel is also the God of Egypt, and even America.  For we confess that there is only one God.  And God told Jacob that he will be with him.  That is comforting that God is with us where ever we go.

 

I pray: O Lord, help me to know that I am never alone and that you are always with me.  Amen.

Look at the Words say they "fell away". The had it, but lost it. Just like the Bible says your name can be blotted out of the Book of Life.
