1 Chronicles 28: 1—29: 30 Interesting tid-bit today.  God promised the Israelites that the “Scepter would not leave Judah.”  This means that the Savior and Everlasting King, A.K.A Jesus would come from the line of Judah.  God promised David that He would preserve his line because of David’s faithfulness.  By the time we get to the New Testament all that is left of the … Read More 7/19/19

1 Chronicles 26: 12—27: 34 You know what I see in this portion of the scripture reading today?  Order.  Structure and everyone knowing their place leads to peace and prosperity.  It is only when people usurp power, do wars start.  God put order in the nation of Israel to reflect His Character.  He put order in the Church to reflect His Character.  He put … Read More 7/18/19 One Year Bible Recap

1 Chronicles 24: 1—26: 11 “Casting Lots” in the Old Testament is not the same as gambling.  This was the way they determined God’s will in a situation like this were people were assigned jobs or land.  It was not used in situations like, “Should we follow the Lord and adhere to the Law?”  The use of this was in deference to God because … Read More 7/17/19 One Year Bible Recap

1 Chronicles 22: 1—23: 32 There is nothing I love more than seeing someone prepare for the future.  There is nothing more frustrating to me than someone who says, “In the future I am going to _____” but then does nothing to move toward that end.  I am going to sound like a cliché motivational poster, but this principle is true: Achieving desired goals … Read More 7/16/19 One Year Bible Recap

1 Chronicles 19: 1—21: 30 Most of what we read today we have already read in 2 Samuel.  However, just like the gospels record different aspects of the same event because they are written by different men, so too are there different aspects, numbers and motives recorded here.  It all comes out in the wash.  Romans 2:25—3: 8 Yesterday Paul introduced the second witness … Read More 7/15/19 One Year Bible Recap

1 Chronicles 15: 1—16:36 This is life with God right here.  You seek Him, He might have to correct you (Uzziah’s death when David tried to move the Ark how he wanted to), you take the correction and then do things God’s way.  David reveals his character in his actions after being discipline.  He rounds up the Levites and puts the God ordained worship … Read More 7/13/19 One Year Bible Recap

1 Chronicles 12: 19—14: 17 The story that stood out to me today in this section was when king David wanted to bring the Ark back to Jerusalem, and Uzziah was a casualty.  David mistakenly planned all this pomp and grandeur to bring the Ark back and forgot what the Lord had actually ordained for transporting the Ark.  Remember back in Deuteronomy?  Acacia poles, … Read More 7/12/19 One Year Bible Recap

1 Chronicles 11: 1—12: 18 Aaahhhh, I see why people complain that this book white washes history.  The story of David coming to the throne seems to be missing a guy named Abner who decided he was king, not David.  This story makes it sound like Saul died, and everyone looked for David and then they all held hands and sang kumbaya.  Which, if … Read More 7/11/19 One Year Bible Recap

1 Chronicles 9: 1—10: 14 The book is transitioning to narrative with the close of the genealogies in this section.  Also, after the Exile, the focus is really on the tribe of Judah, (including the tribes of Benjamin, Ephraim and Manasseh).  This is because instead of inhabiting the whole Land that was promised to them, Israel will be doing good just to keep hold … Read More 7/10/19 One Year Bible Recap

7/9/19 One Year Bible Recap

1 Chronicles 7: 1—8: 40 The descendants of Issachar, Benjamin, Naphtali, Manasseh, Ephraim, and Asher are listed today.  I was confused when, after we read all of those names it then recorded, ”Benjamin’s first son was…….”  I was like, wait, what?  Is this a new Benjamin?  What did I miss?  So, I picked up my trusty Bible Knowledge Commentary and it said this: Benjamin … Read More 7/9/19 One Year Bible Recap

7/8/19 One Year Bible Recap

1 Chronicles 5: 18—6: 81 The genealogies of Moses and Aaron are important because as the people are setting up worship in the Temple again after the Exile, they needed to know who is a Levitical descendent.  Only descendants of Aaron could serve as high priests.  After the Exile the monarchy is never really ever set up again.  The governing falls to the Priests, … Read More 7/8/19 One Year Bible Recap

I Chronicles 2: 18—4: 4 I am experimenting with making timelines because, as I have documented:  I am the timeline girl.  In yesterday’s reading we saw this timeline: The above timeline is the Patriarch Timeline.  These were the people God worked through to make Himself known to the surrounding nations.  He made Covenants with these guys that defined how God will deal with sin … Read More 7/6/19 One Year Bible Recap
