June 25, I Kings 1:5-9
Saturday, June 25, 2016      0 comments

June 25, I Kings 1:5-9 Adonijah is setting himself up as king but there is a difference between this and what Absalom did. Adonijah was apparently the eldest living son and by logical succession would be the next king, David was old and... Read more

June 24, I Kings 1:1-4 There's a certain level of humor in this and a level of practicality, not that it was right. I hope that if I ever get so old that a pretty young lady cant turn me on I just die. With David's history concerning wome... Read more

June 23, Joel 3:17-21 This is obviously a prophecy of times to come, a time when Israel will worship God and not have dealings with those who do not. A time when the enemies of Israel will be brought low and judged for their actions. Israe... Read more

June 22, Joel 3:9-16 In Isaiah 2 God says turn your swords to plowshares, here He says the opposite. There will someday be a time of universal peace but that time won't come until Christ returns. There will also be times of war when every... Read more

June 21, Joel 3:1-8 There's a lot here in these 8 verses. A prophecy of God judging all nations, this could refer to the end of days, when God judges all of mankind or it could be any one of a number of times when God brought His people ba... Read more

June 20, Joel 2:28-32 This prophecy is quoted by Peter in Acts 2:17 and he refers to the Holy Spirit filling the people on Pentecost. In all of the translations I looked at, verse 28 says 'afterward', but after what? After the people repe... Read more

June 19, Joel 2:18-27 This is one of the places where God gives us an if-then promise. If His people will return then He will bless the land. It says they will have all of the crops that the locusts ate, God will restore the lost years. ... Read more

June 18, Joel 2:12-17 The word for the ages is and I suppose will always be repent. But most people don't know what that actually means. We usually associate repent with a change in behavior and in most cases that's true but the real mean... Read more

June 17, Joel 2:1-11 Sound the alarm for an enemy is invading the land, it's army is so large it can not be compared to any other in history nor will it be again. Whatever is before it will be destroyed, like a fire it consumes, like locus... Read more

June 16, Joel 1:13-20 This second half is a picture of a land that was once great now impoverished. The priests lament from a lack of worshipers, offerings and prayers are not being made. He calls for an assembly of the elders to put asi... Read more

June 15, Joel 1:1-12 The book of Joel was probably written between the time that Israel, the northern kingdom, and Judah the southern were captured. Much of this is literal and much is figurative. There were in fact locusts that destroyed... Read more

June 13, II Samuel 24:10-17 We do no know the extent of David's sin, we can surmise that it had something to do with numbering his men. Whatever it was I believe it was something that caused the people to sin also, hence the judgments from ... Read more

June 12, II Samuel 24:1-9 This chapter has a parallel in 1 Chronicles 21 and they appear to disagree on a key point. Here it says that the anger of The Lord was kindled against Israel and in Chronicles it says that Satan rose up against Is... Read more

June 11, II Samuel 23 It says these are David's last words, perhaps the meaning is last words of advice, he begins the chapter with some wisdom, men should live according to God, pretty basic really. The second part is almost like a eulogy... Read more
