Daily Bible Reading 24 May 2018

5/24/18 Daily Bible Reading: 1 Chronicles 28-2 Chronicles 1, Acts 15, Proverbs 24

1 Chronicles 28:20 (NKJV)
And David said to his son Solomon, “Be strong and of good courage, and do it; do not fear nor be dismayed, for the LORD God–my God–will be with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you, until you have finished all the work for the service of the house of the LORD.

Book: 2 Chronicles

Author: Not stated but traditionally attributed to Ezra the priest.

Date: Covers the history of Israel from about 970 BC (the accension of Solomon) to about the 500s BC (when exiled Jews returned to Jerusalem).

In ten words or less: The history of Israel from King Solomon’s reign to division and destruction.

“From Know Your Bible, published by Barbour Publishing, Inc. Used by permission”

2 Chronicles 1:10-12 (NKJV)
Now give me wisdom and knowledge, that I may go out and come in before this people; for who can judge this great people of Yours?”  And God said to Solomon: “Because this was in your heart, and you have not asked riches or wealth or honor or the life of your enemies, nor have you asked long life–but have asked wisdom and knowledge for yourself, that you may judge My people over whom I have made you king– wisdom and knowledge are granted to you; and I will give you riches and wealth and honor, such as none of the kings have had who were before you, nor shall any after you have the like.”

For those still debating that we are spiritual Jews and come under the law of Moses read Acts 15 for yourself and see what the dispute was about and what the Christian Church elders said about it.

Acts 15:22-29 (NKJV)
Then it pleased the apostles and elders, with the whole church, to send chosen men of their own company to Antioch with Paul and Barnabas, namely, Judas who was also named Barsabas, and Silas, leading men among the brethren. They wrote this letter by them: The apostles, the elders, and the brethren, To the brethren who are of the Gentiles in Antioch, Syria, and Cilicia: Greetings. Since we have heard that some who went out from us have troubled you with words, unsettling your souls, saying, “You must be circumcised and keep the law”–to whom we gave no such commandment– it seemed good to us, being assembled with one accord, to send chosen men to you with our beloved Barnabas and Paul, men who have risked their lives for the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. We have therefore sent Judas and Silas, who will also report the same things by word of mouth. For it seemed good to the Holy Spirit, and to us, to lay upon you no greater burden than these necessary things: that you abstain from things offered to idols, from blood, from things strangled, and from sexual immorality. If you keep yourselves from these, you will do well. Farewell.

Daily Bible Reading 23 May 2018

5/23/18 Daily Bible Reading: 1 Chronicles 25-27, Acts 14, Proverbs 23

Acts 14:23-28 (NKJV)
So when they had appointed elders in every church, and prayed with fasting, they commended them to the Lord in whom they had believed. And after they had passed through Pisidia, they came to Pamphylia. Now when they had preached the word in Perga, they went down to Attalia. From there they sailed to Antioch, where they had been commended to the grace of God for the work which they had completed. Now when they had come and gathered the church together, they reported all that God had done with them, and that He had opened the door of faith to the Gentiles. So they stayed there a long time with the disciples.

5/22/18 Daily Bible Reading: 1 Chronicles 22-24, Acts 13, Proverbs 22

1 Chronicles 22:6-13 (KJV)
Then he called for Solomon his son, and charged him to build an house for the LORD God of Israel. And David said to Solomon, My son, as for me, it was in my mind to build an house unto the name of the LORD my God: But the word of the LORD came to me, saying, Thou hast shed blood abundantly, and hast made great wars: thou shalt not build an house unto my name, because thou hast shed much blood upon the earth in my sight. Behold, a son shall be born to thee, who shall be a man of rest; and I will give him rest from all his enemies round about: for his name shall be Solomon, and I will give peace and quietness unto Israel in his days. He shall build an house for my name; and he shall be my son, and I will be his father; and I will establish the throne of his kingdom over Israel for ever. Now, my son, the LORD be with thee; and prosper thou, and build the house of the LORD thy God, as he hath said of thee. Only the LORD give thee wisdom and understanding, and give thee charge concerning Israel, that thou mayest keep the law of the LORD thy God. Then shalt thou prosper, if thou takest heed to fulfil the statutes and judgments which the LORD charged Moses with concerning Israel: be strong, and of good courage; dread not, nor be dismayed.

Acts 13:2-3 (KJV)
As they ministered to the Lord, and fasted, the Holy Ghost said, Separate me Barnabas and Saul for the work whereunto I have called them. And when they had fasted and prayed, and laid their hands on them, they sent them away.

God Shine through me

Daily Service – GOD SHINE THROUGH ME

 A song we sing in church was running through my mind this morning during my devotions, so I went looking for the passage the song was written on.  What I found was so much more.  Why are we persecuted? Why are we maligned?  Because we show the Love of Christ (or at least we should) in these frail human vessels, so that God’s Glory shines out of us to a dark world. The job for you is to be the vessel worthy of this task. I don’t own this light, I am not worthy to hold this light, but Christ died for me, so I can hold this light inside of me. The light is the Holy Spirit (Christ in me).  So, I shine forth the Love of Christ so that you see Christ and not me.

 

2 Corinthians 4:7-11 (AMP)
However, we possess this precious treasure [the divine Light of the Gospel] in [frail, human] vessels of earth, that the grandeur and exceeding greatness of the power may be shown to be from God and not from ourselves. We are hedged in (pressed) on every side [troubled and oppressed in every way], but not cramped or crushed; we suffer embarrassments and are perplexed and unable to find a way out, but not driven to despair; We are pursued (persecuted and hard driven), but not deserted [to stand alone]; we are struck down to the ground, but never struck out and destroyed; Always carrying about in the body the liability and exposure to the same putting to death that the Lord Jesus suffered, so that the [resurrection] life of Jesus also may be shown forth by and in our bodies. For we who live are constantly [experiencing] being handed over to death for Jesus’ sake, that the [resurrection] life of Jesus also may be evidenced through our flesh which is liable to death.

2-corinthians-47_2466_1024x768

2 Corinthians 4:7-11 (KJV)
But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us. We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair;
Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed; Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body. For we which live are alway delivered unto death for Jesus’ sake, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our mortal flesh.

2 Corinthians 4:7-11 (GenevaBible)
But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of that power might be of God, and not of us. We are afflicted on every side, yet are we not in distress: we are in doubt, but yet we despair not. We are persecuted, but not forsaken: cast down, but we perish not. Everywhere we bear about in our body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life of Jesus might also be made manifest in our bodies. For we which live, are always delivered unto death for Jesus’ sake, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our mortal flesh.

Daily Bible Reading 21 May 2018

5/21/18 Daily Bible Reading: 1 Chronicles 19-21, Acts 12, Proverbs 21

1 Chronicles 21:17 (NKJV)
And David said to God, “Was it not I who commanded the people to be numbered? I am the one who has sinned and done evil indeed; but these sheep, what have they done? Let Your hand, I pray, O LORD my God, be against me and my father’s house, but not against Your people that they should be plagued.”

Pray for those oppressed for the name of Jesus.  Ask God to intervene and He will send his angels.

Acts 12:5-7 (NKJV)

Peter was therefore kept in prison, but constant prayer was offered to God for him by the church.
And when Herod was about to bring him out, that night Peter was sleeping, bound with two chains between two soldiers; and the guards before the door were keeping the prison. Now behold, an angel of the Lord stood by him, and a light shone in the prison; and he struck Peter on the side and raised him up, saying, “Arise quickly!” And his chains fell off his hands.

What’s in a name?

DAY 46

What’s in a name?

Isaiah 9:6 NKJV

For unto us a Child is born, Unto us a Son is given; And the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

Philippians 2:10 NKJV

that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth,

Acts 4:10-12 NKJV

let it be known to you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom you crucified, whom God raised from the dead, by Him this man stands here before you whole. This is the ‘stone which was rejected by you builders, which has become the chief cornerstone.’ Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.”

Acts 2:21 NKJV

And it shall come to pass That whoever calls on the name of the LORD Shall be saved.’

Acts 2:38-39 NKJV

Then Peter said to them, “Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. For the promise is to you and to your children, and to all who are afar off, as many as the Lord our God will call.”

I am proud to be a Christian. To be known as a follower of Christ is the highest calling in the world.

What’s in a name? Praise the name of Jesus, name above all names.

Daily Bible Reading 19 May 2018

5/19/18 Daily Bible Reading: 1 Chronicles 16-18, Acts 11, Proverbs 19

1 Chronicles 16:11 (KJV)
Seek the LORD and his strength, seek his face continually.

GiveThanks1Chron

 1 Chronicles 16:36 (NKJV)
Blessed be the LORD God of Israel From everlasting to everlasting! And all the people said, “Amen!” and praised the LORD.

Praise Him

Acts 11:15-18 (NKJV)
And as I began to speak, the Holy Spirit fell upon them, as upon us at the beginning. Then I remembered the word of the Lord, how He said, ‘John indeed baptized with water, but you shall be baptized with the Holy Spirit.’ If therefore God gave them the same gift as He gave us when we believed on the Lord Jesus Christ, who was I that I could withstand God?” When they heard these things they became silent; and they glorified God, saying, “Then God has also granted to the Gentiles repentance to life.”
