February 14, 1 Samuel 5:1-5

Sunday, February 14, 2016      0 comments

February 14, 1 Samuel 5:1-5 The Philistines have captured the ark and although they did not die from touching it I believe it's because God is about to teach them some important lessons. They realize that the ark represented Israel's God s... Read more

February 13, 1 Samuel 4:12-22

Saturday, February 13, 2016      1 comments

February 13, 1 Samuel 4:12-22 A lot of people die in this chapter and the primary reason is because Israel was disobedient. God totally eliminated Eli's immediate family. It's a sad situation that Israel is now without a priest and the ar... Read more

February 12, 1 Samuel 4:5-11

Friday, February 12, 2016      0 comments

February 12, 1 Samuel 4:5-11 A few different thoughts here. First I've often wondered how they were able to move the ark from the most holy place. According to the Law, only the Levites could move the ark when Israel moved the tabernacle.... Read more

February 11, 1 Samuel 4:1-4

Thursday, February 11, 2016      1 comments

February 11, 1 Samuel 4:1-4 Just looking at these first four verses but there's a lot here. Israel again is at war with the Philistines and can't understand why they're losing. To begin with they were supposed to wipe out the philistines ... Read more

February 10, 1 Samuel 3:15-21

Wednesday, February 10, 2016      1 comments

February 10, 1 Samuel 3:15-21 Yesterday I said there was just one item I wanted to look at in chapter 3 but I was wrong. Look at Eli's reaction to what Samuel tells him from God. He does nothing, he's just going to accept the consequences... Read more

February 9, 1 Samuel 3

Tuesday, February 09, 2016      2 comments

February 9, 1 Samuel 3 There's really only one item in this chapter but it's so powerful. Samuel hears from and speaks directly with God. There's an audible voice, not just a feeling from the spirit. The text says that The lord came and ... Read more

February 8, 1 Samuel 2:27-36

Monday, February 08, 2016      1 comments

February 8, 1 Samuel 2:27-36 We're not told who this prophet was that came to Eli, I suppose that if we were supposed to know God would have told us. I am curious though if this was a man continually communicating with God or just a single... Read more

February 7, 1 Samuel 2:22-26

Sunday, February 07, 2016      0 comments

February 7, 1 Samuel 2:22-26 Eli's sons are pretty bad, again I say that power corrupts and it certainly corrupted these men. Isn't it interesting how the evils don't change through time? These men abused power, coveted wealth, had sexual... Read more

February 6, 1 Samuel 2:12-21

Saturday, February 06, 2016      0 comments

February 6, 1 Samuel 2:12-21 The law established that a portion of each sacrifice was to go to the priests, that did not include the fat. God commanded that the fat was His to be burned on His altar. Eli's sons preferred roasted meat and t... Read more

February 5, 1 Samuel 2:1-11

Friday, February 05, 2016      1 comments

February 5, 1 Samuel 2:1-11 Hannah prays, or more specifically she praises and prophecies. Her prayer has a certain beauty to it. The best prayers are those that don't involve a lot of thought, simply spoken from the heart. Hannah begins... Read more

February 4, 1 Samuel 1:20-28

Thursday, February 04, 2016      4 comments

February 4, 1 Samuel 1:20-28 Hannah brings Samuel to The Lord with the required sacrifice. A bull three years old and an ephah of flour. So what is an ephah you ask, seven and a half gallons. That's a lot of flour. Hannah has kept her vo... Read more

February 3, 1 Samuel 1:9-20

Wednesday, February 03, 2016      0 comments

February 3, 1 Samuel 1:9-20 Hannah makes a vow and in this case she actually keeps it which we'll see later. It's dangerous to make vows, most all of us have done it at times and probably failed to keep them. Jesus told his disciples not ... Read more

February 2, 1 Samuel 1:1-10

Tuesday, February 02, 2016      0 comments

February 2, 1 Samuel 1:1-10 Beginning a deeper study today, starting with the book of Samuel. I hope to look more at the person and his character than on simply the book. Elkanah is a descendant of Ephraim, which was one of the tribes ado... Read more

February 1, Deuteronomy 34

Monday, February 01, 2016      1 comments

February 1, Deuteronomy 34 Moses has died and Joshua takes his place. I think it important to note that no-one knows where Moses was buried and I think the reason is that people would worship his bones or 'stuff' as idols if they knew. An... Read more

January 31, Deuteronomy 33

Sunday, January 31, 2016      0 comments

January 31, Deuteronomy 33 This is fairly straight forward, Moses prays and prophecies over the tribes of Israel. Some of significance, for Levi to be teachers with wisdom as they were to be a tribe of priests. For Judah, who was the mili... Read more
