The LORD Brought The Fear Of Him Upon All Nations

"And the Philistines yet again spread themselves abroad in the valley. Therefore David enquired again of God; and God said unto him, 'Go not up after them; turn away from them, and come upon them over against the mulberry trees. And it shall be, when thou shalt hear a sound of going in the tops of …

Day Twenty Eight – David, Solomon, and the Temple

Our Scripture reading for today is 1 Chronicles 23 - 2 Chronicles 4. I know as I read through this this morning there were names of the Levites, soldiers, mighty men, artisans who would make the designs and so on, and so on. I did mark a few verses that stood out to me as …

Day Twenty One – The Rise and Fall of Kings and Commoners

The reading today was from 1 Samuel 30 thru 2 Samuel 11.  Quite interesting reading of wars, strife, the death of one king and his family; the rise of a new king, and his fall. We see battles where people are killed.  People of Israel are destroyed by foreign kings, and by their own people.  …

Day Eighteen – Life Decays Without God

Today's reading is Judges 14 - 1 Samuel 3. For me it was and is a very rewarding experience; as it usually is reading the Word of God.  Reading the Judges chapter 14 through 21 you will find a common phrase in it in the latter chapters. “In those days there was no king in …

Let Me Fall Now into the Hand of the LORD

"And Satan stood up against Israel, and provoked David to number Israel.  And David said to Joab and to the rulers of the people, 'Go, number Israel from Beersheba even to Dan; and bring the number of them to me, that I may know it.' And Joab answered, 'The LORD make His people an hundred …

What One Nation on Earth is Like Israel?

"And David the king came and sat before the LORD, and said, 'Who am I, O LORD God, and what is mine house, that Thou hast brought me hitherto?  And yet this was a small thing in Thine eyes, O God; for Thou hast also spoken of Thy servant's house for a great while to …

When a King, a Man, Suffers the Consequences of His Sin
