Daily Bible Reading Day 72: Job 42

Job 42

God redeemed Job from all of his sufferings.  He was given livestock, a new family, and many more healthy years of living.

Job was remorseful of doubting God.  God condemned the friends of Job for accusing Job of sin.  God never mentioned Job and sin.  Therefore, Job lived a righteous life before all of that suffering.

There are many things God will do that we will never understand.  Let our faith increase and may we trust in the Lord to carry us through all we encounter.  We may not see the glory in this life, but we will in eternity.  God will redeem all of our hurt.

Daily Bible Reading Day 348: 2 Chronicles 16/ Revelation 5

2 Chronicles 16

Asa was king of Israel.  Asa trusted God, but many times looked to man for the answers.  Asa removed his mother from the throne because that is what God wanted.  In other situations, Asa did not seek the direction of God.  Asa threw the prophet, Hanani in jail, which was the wrong decision.  Asa became ill, when he was older and went to “doctors” who were not real physicians, more like a witch doctor.  Asa did not go to God and he died.  God wants us to trust him wholeheartledly.  It is a sin to trust man more than God.

Revelation 5

Jesus died for our sins, rose again, holds the keys to Heaven and Hell, and is the future.  Jesus is the only one, who was worthy to open the scrolls.

Jesus is the lion and the lamb.  The lion represents the power  and authority.  The lamb represents the ultimate sacrifice of dying for all of our sins.  Share the message of Jesus to everyone.  Christ will welcome those who receive Christ as their Lord and Savior, no matter their ethnicity.  Jesus is not prejudice!

Daily Bible Reading Day 88: Exodus 40/John 19

Exodus 40

Building the tabernacle was truly a group effort.  Moses was the leader but he entrusted all the people to take part some how.  We as Christians are to help to advance the Kingdom of God.  Do something not nothing, no matter how big or small.  All is appreciated and valued by God and the church.

The Israelites endured great hardship escaping Egypt and then they were brought great glory after the tabernacle was built.  Pain then glory/redemption.  This is like our lives today.  We will endure hardship and then God will redeem.

John 19

Jesus was tortured before He hung on the cross.  Pilate tried to talk to Jesus but succumbed to the pressures of the Jewish people that Pilate would be against Cesar.

Pilate gave Jesus to the guards and they prepared Him for the cruxificion.  The stripped Jesus of his clothes and only allowed a small piece of garment to cover Him.  This was all in the prophesies in the books of the Old Testament.

Mary, Jesus’ mother, Mary Magdalene and Mary, the wife of Clopas saw Jesus hanging on the cross.  Jesus asked for his thirst to be quenched and they gave him cheap wine.  Then he said, “It is finished” and his spirit left Him and he died on the cross.

Usually the guards would break the legs of the people who were crucified but they did not with Jesus.  They did pierce his side and blood and water came out.  Jesus did indeed die.  Bones of sacrificial lambs used at Passover were never broken.  Jesus is the ultimate sacrifice.

Joseph and Nicodemus, were secret Jewish  followers of Jesus.  They prepared Jesus’ body for the burial and wrapped Him in linen.  He was placed inside a tomb in a garden.
