I Samuel 15: 1—16: 23 God decides to deliver judgement and is going to Saul to carry it out.  However, remember we talked about if you are going to be God’s judgement rod you must follow his orders.  Saul and his men spared everything that appealed to them.  Good Call Saul strikes again.  My favorite verse might be when Samuel says, “Oh you did … Read More 5/14/19 One Year Bible Recap

Guys! Something momentous has happened in a small way in my house.  I have actually set up a real writing space.  Which means I have now for real invested actual money in my “writing.”  Don’t be alarmed, I will not let it go to my head.  I will not show up to events wearing an ascot, smoking a pipe and carrying a brief case.  … Read More 5/13/19 One Year Bible Recap

I Samuel 10: 1—11: 15 Don’t forget that any prophet or person with message from God will have to be legitimized by near and far prophecy.  The near prophecy that Samuel gives Good Call Saul is that very specific things will happen on his journey home.  The far prediction is that he will become king. Bible Nerd Moment:  I am so sorry but I … Read More 5/11/19 One Year Bible Recap

I Samuel 8: 1—9: 27 It’s totally ok for Israel to ask for a king.  God told them that they would have a leader like that.  The problem is the timing.  The kingdom that God would institute in his own good timing would be a Kingdom, like the kind that happens after the cross, when Jesus comes back for the second time.  The Israelites … Read More 5/10/19 One Year Bible Recap

I Samuel 5: 1—7: 17 What a great story today!  God is in the business of setting people free of their fake idol worship.  It is up to them to acknowledge Him as God.  The Dagon worshippers take the Ark and set it before their fake god, and God’s like, “Hahahah, LOL, watch this.” The breaking of Dagon by God is followed up by … Read More 5/9/19 One Year Bible Recap

I Samuel 2: 22—4: 22 In the Levitical Priesthood of Israel, if you knew a priest was sinning and you did nothing to stop it you were just as much to blame as them.  We see in this passage that Eli placed more value on his son’s than he did on the Lord.  Eli had turned his son’s into idols and let them do … Read More 5/8/19 One Year Bible Recap

1 Samuel 1: 1—2: 21 We start another book today!  Look at us go!  Samuel I & II are most likely mostly written by Samuel.  He probably had help later in his life.  All of it was divinely inspired so don’t worry too much about it.  It covers the historical account for the judgeship to the monarch.  The purpose of these books is to … Read More 5/7/19 One Year Bible Recap

5/6/19 One Year Bible Recap

Ruth Oh man guys, I love this story so much.  It is a story of hope to illustrate God’s character in the midst of total anarchy.  On one side you have people who have completely syncretized the Lord with the total anarchy and debauchery of the Canaanite culture, on the other you have a man who is devoted to the Lord and living out … Read More 5/6/19 One Year Bible Recap

Judges 19:1—20: 48 Do you remember how a few days ago we talked about syncretism?  Well the syncretism of the Israelite’s covenant with God and the surrounding nation of Canaan is complete.  This story, that reminds us of Sodom, is the proof that Israel has done what the Lord warned them not to do.  Instead of reflecting God to the surrounding nations, they have … Read More 5/4/19 One Year Bible Recap – May the 4th be with you…

5/3/19 One Year Bible Recap

Tuck in, I had a lot of words to use on you today.  Sorry, not sorry. Judges 17: 1—18: 31 What a rollercoaster of emotions today.  I got so hopeful when Micah confessed to taking the money and mom said, “The Lord bless you….,” then crushed when she took the money and commission idols.  Then I was excited that this young Levite came because … Read More 5/3/19 One Year Bible Recap

Judges 15: 1—16: 31 What a Romeo Samson is!  I know my dream was to get married and have my husband show up about a year later with a goat and say, “You ready? I’m coming into your room.” Shockingly, because of his absence our girl has moved on.  Samson retaliates and a tit for tat war is born. Thus, ending this delightful Rom-com. … Read More 5/2/19 One Year Bible Recap
