Days 15-21 Review

It's never too late to start reading.. Today could be your day...

--------------------------------------------------------

This week's reading was finishing up the book of 1 Samuel and then completing books 2 Samuel, and 1 and 2 Kings...

In the first page of this week's reading I came across a passage that stopped me in my tracks and I needed to do some research on.. 1 Samuel 28:14-15 In this passage Saul is speaking to a medium and wanting to find answers about his fate as King and this is what happens...

"....then Saul knew it was Samuel, and he bowed down and prostrated himself with his face to the ground. Samuel said to Saul, "Why have you disturbed me by bringing me up?"

Bringing him up? That's what got my attention when reading this passage.. Samuel was a man of God. Followed His teachings and was buried with his ancestors upon his death. Why then would he be coming up from the earth and not down from heaven?

In Deuteronomy 18:10 God specifically asks his people not to confront mediums as it is written...

"Let no one be found among you who sacrifices their son or daughter in the fire, who practices divination or sorcery, interprets omens, engages in witchcraft, or casts spells, or who is a medium or spiritist or who consults the dead."

That's what Saul did here. If you go back a little in the passage before Saul sees Samuel you can see that the medium is playing him. She states she doesn't know him until he says he is the King but she did and wanted to lie to him on purpose. This is all the works of Satan and not God.

Before the end of this book Saul ends up taking his own life during battle since his armor-bearer wouldn't do it, he fell on his own sword in death.

In 2 Samuel, David finds out about the death of Saul and mourns him and then becomes King. There was a war between both houses of David and Saul...

2 Samuel 3:1 "The war between the house of Saul and the house of David lasted a long time. David grew stronger and stronger, while the house of Saul grew weaker and weaker."

After David became King he brought the Ark back to Jerusalem. David walked with the Lord until he met Bathsheba. He deceived her husband into battle to kill him so she may become his wife. God was not pleased with him. God sent Nathan to speak to David in 2 Samuel 12. God didn't allow David to die but He did tell David through Nathan that his son will for sure die..

After the death of David's son, Bathsheba had another son... Solomon. Solomon will be the one person to rein after David and will build a house for the Lord God.

Solomon spoke to God and asked him for a discerning heart to govern God's people in 1 Kings 3:9. God was pleased by his request in 1 Kings 3:10-14 by giving him a wise and discerning heart, and that their will be nobody else like Solomon. He will also bless him with wealth and honor and God says in verse 14 "And if you walk in obedience to me and keep my decrees and commands as David your father did, I will give you a long life."

Solomon was so wise that people would come to him from everywhere to hear his wisdom including two women fighting over a baby in 1 Kings 3:23-27 as well as the Queen of Sheba visits him in 1 Kings 10.

Did you know that Solomon had seven hundred wives of royal birth and three hundred concubines as written in 1 Kings 11:3? WOW! With that many wives, unfortunately they led him astray and was not fully devoted to the Lord his God like his father David. He ended up doing evil in the eyes of the Lord as written in verses 4-6.

Solomon reined in Jerusalem over all of Israel for 40 years before he rested with his ancestors and buried in the city of David.

In 1 and 2 Kings we got to learn about the Kings of Israel and Judah... There were 20 noted Kings of Israel. Out of all 20 Kings, one did right by the Lord and it wasn't his entire rein did he and that was Jehu.

There were also 20 noted Kings of Judah. Out of all 20 Kings, 8 did right by the Lord.. Asa, Jehoshaphat, Joash, Amaziah, Azariah (Uzziah), Jotham, Hezekiah, and Josiah.

We are looking at 40 Kings and not even 1/4 believed in God...

Before finishing up this week's review I wanted to end on a scripture that is very similar to a time in the future when Jesus walks on the Earth..

In 2 Kings 4: 42-44 you will read "A man came from Baal Shalishah, bringing the man of God twenty loaves of barley bread baked from the first ripe grain, along with some heads of new grain. "Give it to the people to eat," Elisha said. "Who can I set this before a hundred men?" his servant asked. But Elisha answered, "Give it to the people to eat. For this is what the Lord says: "they will eat and have some left over." Then he set it before them, and they ate and had some left over, according to the word of the Lord."

If you've read the Bible at all, you will recognize this story with one told in the book of Matthew 15 where Jesus feeds four thousand people...

We leave off this week's reading at the finish of 2 Kings and to start on the books of 1 and 2 Chronicles...

Bible in 90 Days in Review- Days 15-21


Finished up the third week of Bible in 90 Days.. WOW!

How did your reading go?
Did you give yourself time each day to read, or did you get behind?

For me this week, it was a bit more of a challenge to get my reading in each day. We had a hard blow to our family this past week, hearing of the death of my daughter's grandmother. I ended up not reading for three days straight as we prepared my daughter for a flight to the East Coast for the funeral. On Sunday I started doubling up on my reading and now just a day behind so I'm getting caught up..

----------------------------------------------------------
Haven't started reading yet? No problem... You can start right now by going to the GETTING STARTED Link below... If you have already started your Bible in 90 Days journey I would love to have you join me. You can find your place and follow along right where you are at the following links:

GETTING STARTED
Days 1-7 Review
Days 8-14 Review


It's never too late to start reading.. Today could be your day...

--------------------------------------------------------

This week's reading was in the books Deuteronomy, Joshua, Judges, Ruth, and 1 Samuel


We started off our reading this week in the end of Deuteronomy. In this book God shares over and over the importance of following His laws and reminding them of the consequences if they fail to do so.  He not only shares the importance but reminds the Israelites that He is true, and faithful and does what He says..

In Deuteronomy 29: 5-6 it says "Yet the Lord says, "During the forty years that I led you through the wilderness, your clothes did not wear out, nor did the sandals on your feet. You ate no bread and drank no wine or other fermented drink, I did this so that you might know that I am the Lord your God."

He explains the blessings they will have if they stray from the Lord and return as spoken in Deuteronomy 30:2-3 "and when you and your children return to the Lord your God and obey him with all your heart and with all your soul according to everything I command you today, then the Lord your Go will restore your fortunes and have compassion on you and gather you again from all the nations where he scattered you."

The end of Deuteronomy shares the death of Moses and how he doesn't get to travel to the Promised Land with the other Israelites. He helps appoint Joshua, son of Nun to bring them into the land that God promised them.

We enter the book of Joshua with God sharing with Joshua the directions in entering the promised land. The miraculous power of God crossing the Jordan river and even God made the Sun and Moon stand still in Chapter 10 verses 12-14...

"On the day the Lord gave the Amorites over to Israel, Joshua said to the Lord in the presence of Israel; "Sun, stand still over Gibeon, and you, moon, over the Valley of Aijalon." So the sun stood still, and the moon stopped, till the nation avenged itself on its enemies, as it is written in the Book of Jashar. The sun stopped in the middle of the sky and delayed going down about a full day. There has never been a day like it before or since, a day when the Lord listened to a human being. Surely the Lord was fighting for Israel!"


Finishing up the Book of Joshua by God allotting the Tribes of Israel to their land and Joshua being buried with his people.

We then move onto the book of Judges. This book is full of the Israelites rebelling against God, forming new gods and worshipping them instead of the One True God. God chose at this point to no longer place His hand upon the Israelites and keep them out of harm as you can read in the 2nd Chapter..

Judges 2: 13-16 "They aroused the Lord's anger because they forsook him and served Baal and the Ashtoreths. In his anger against Israel the Lord gave them into the hands of raiders who plundered them. He sold them into the hands of their enemies all around, whom they were no longer able to resist. Whenever Israel went out to fight, the hand of the Lord was against them to defeat them, just as he had sworn to them. They were in great distress."

We get to read the story of Deborah, Gideon, Abimelek and Samson. 

Judges 13:24-25 "The woman gave birth to a boy and named him Samson. He grew and the Lord blessed him, and the Spirit of the Lord began to stir him while he was in Mahaneh Dan, between Zorah and Eshtaol."

We then had the opportunity to read the book of Ruth.. Just 3 1/2 pages long but packed with a lot to read. The love of Ruth to her mother in law Naomi, and there journey to the house of her mother in law's family and then to find Ruth a husband..

Ruth 1: 16-17 "But Ruth replied, "Don't urge me to leave you or to turn back from you. Where you go I will go, and where you stay I will stay. Your people will be my people and your God my God. Where you die I will die, and there I will be buried. May the Lord deal with me, be it ever so severely, if even death separates you and me."

WOW! That is true devotion and a very powerful message spoken by Ruth to Naomi before their journey to Bethlehem. At the end of Ruth we get a wonderful glimpse of the Genealogy of David..

We finish this week's reading in the book of 1 Samuel...

It starts off with the birth of Samuel.  Samuel's mother was unable to conceive so she prayed to God that if she became with child, she would dedicate him to the Lord..

1 Samuel 1:20 "So in the course of time Hannah became pregnant and gave birth to a son. She named him Samuel, saying, "Because I asked the Lord for him."

After he was weaned his parents dedicated him and brought him to Eli, the priest where he was raised. The Lord used Samuel while living in the house of Eli and his wicked son's. During the time of Samuel, the Israelites wanted a King. Samuel tried to tell the people they had a king, God, but they wouldn't listen..

1 Samuel 8: 6-8 "But when they said, "Give us a king to lead us," this displeased Samuel; so he prayed to the Lord. And the Lord told him: Listen to all that the people are saying to you; it is not you they have rejected, but they have rejected me as their king. As they have done from the day I brought them up out of Egypt until this day, forsaking me and serving other gods, so they are doing to you."

God appoints Saul to be the first King to the Israelites with the help of Samuel but things don't turn out to be all good. God then rejects Saul as King and wants to appoint someone new.. David.. We get to read the story of young David and Goliath and God wanting him to be the new King and the turmoil surrounding the relationship between David and Saul.. and that's where we leave off before starting out next week's reading by finishing up the book of 1 Samuel...

Bible in 90 Days in Review- Days 8-14


Finished up the second week of Bible in 90 Days.. WOW!

How did your reading go?
Did you give yourself time each day to read, or did you get behind?

To make this commitment for 90 days we need to make some time sacrifices. For me, I have limited my time on the internet each day. Reading the Bible each day takes approximately 45 minutes to an hour depending on your speed of reading. By now 2 weeks in, you should have some sort of routine down implementing your Bible reading into your daily life..

If not, there is still time to find a pattern for you. Don't give up!! You can do this! If you ever get behind, just add a few minutes each day until you are caught up. If you get too far behind you may need to take one day and chisel out some time to get caught up.. God wants you to read His word. He wants this relationship with you.. You can do this!!!

GETTING STARTED
Days 1-7 Review


It's never too late to start reading.. Today could be your day...

-----------------------------------------------

This week's reading was in the books Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy


In Leviticus we learned about the five offerings God desires from his people. He goes in great detail on how each one should be done. The Burnt Offering, The Grain Offering, The Fellowship Offering, The Sin Offering and the Guilt Offering. The first 7 Chapters of the Book of Leviticus is devoted to these offerings.

He then goes about describing what is clean and unclean according to food, how to be clean physically and what is clean and unclean as far as your material possessions.  God goes to great lengths to help us understand how important it is to be clean in His eyes in every facet of our lives.

In Leviticus 17 he discusses the importance of not eating the blood of any animal. In verse 11 it says "For the life of a creature is in the blood, and I have given it to you to make atonement for yourselves on the altar; it is the blood that makes atonement for one's life."

The importance of the blood of these animals during this time was to wash away our sin's. Without Jesus Christ's blood these animals were the only way to be forgiven by God for our sin's.. Very powerful verse for me this week to read.

Leviticus is a book of laws and rules so we continue to learn about what is unlawful according to sexual relations as well as what our punishments are for our sins to redeeming what is the Lord's.

We also read the book of Numbers.  Starting out by God asking for a census of all the Israelites clans and families. He then arranged the tribal camps and giving each tribe their appointed jobs. The bulk of this book is about the Tabernacle and how it should be built, who should build what and then goes into the actual building of it including who will be appointed priests.

Since the people rebel to the Lord in Chapter 14, the Lord refuses to let this generation go into the promise land which gives them 40 years in the wilderness wondering until this generation passes.

In Chapter 14, verse 30 it says "Not one of you will enter the land I swore with uplifted hand to make your home, except Caleb son of Jephunneh and Joshua son of Nun." It then goes on to say in verse 34-35 "For forty years- one year for each of the forty days you explored the land- you will suffer for your sins and know what it is like to have me against you. I, the Lord, have spoken, and I will surely do these things to this whole wicked community, which has banded together against me. They will meet their end in this wilderness; here they will die."


Since Moses was unable to go to the Promised Land because when the people rebelled at the waters in the Desert of Zin, both Moses and Aaron disobeyed God.  After Aaron already passed, Moses was to give Joshua, son of Nun his authority over the whole Israelite community before Moses was gathered to his people and Joshua was to bring the Israelites into the Promised Land. 

Deuteronomy was a great book to read. It took all that we've read in Numbers and Leviticus and gave us an overview, like a story read from a first person account and made everything we've read solidify in my mind and easier to understand.

God speaks many times in this book about the importance of obeying Him and not straying. Either by worshiping other gods or personal items. My favorite scripture in the book of Deuteronomy was in Chapter 4 verses 7-9,

"What other nations is so great as to have their gods near them the way the Lord our God is near us whenever we pray to him? And what other nation is so great as to have such righteous decrees and laws as this body of laws I am setting before you today? Only be careful, and watch yourselves closely so that you do not forget the things your eyes have seen or let them fade from your heart as long as you live. Teach them to your children and to their children after them."

God was telling us the importance of the Israelites sharing their personal accounts of God with them along the journey to the Promised Land. As each generation dies and those that have spoken to God directly are no longer living, then how powerful sin can take over the world as we see today since those still living and not knowing the power of God and what He did for His people!

I will finish this week's wrap up with this verse in Deuteronomy Chapter 6 verses 4-9,

"The Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates."

This scripture is not only for those Israelites.. This scripture still holds true today.. Sometimes I feel more than ever before how important it is to share the Word of God to everyone. Our world is corrupt and is turning away from God at an alarming rate.. We need to really hear what God is saying in this scripture and take action as Christian's....

What a great second week of reading. A lot to take in and understand..

Answer some or all these questions to help you along the way. Comment below or join in on my Facebook page HERE where I post daily information regarding the Bible in 90 Days reading...

  •  Are you reading the Bible instead of other things in your life or in addition to other things?
  •  If you're struggling with your reading, are there activities that you can replace with Bible reading rather than reading in addition to your current activities? What activities could you eliminate?
  • In Leviticus there are five main sacrifices, can you name them?
  • What happens to Aaron's sons in Leviticus 10:1-2? What does this tell us about how God expects us to interact with Him?
  • We see in Deuteronomy that Moses dies after seeing the Promise Land but doesn't have the opportunity to actually go to it. Do you think this is unfair/fair? From God's perspective, how might it be considered just?

Bible in 90 Days Days 1-7 in Review


Finished up the first week of Bible in 90 Days.. WOW!

How did your reading go?
Did you give yourself time each day to read, get behind?

No worries... there is always a way to catch up without skipping anything.. Just add 10-15 minutes here and there throughout the days and depending how far behind you are will determine how many increments you will need to get caught up.

Don't let getting behind discourage you. I fell behind one day and was able to chisel time out throughout the following day to make up the pages and to also read that days reading. It's doable so don't give up!

This week's reading was in the Books of Genesis and Exodus.


We got to read about the hand of God designing the World and everything in it. We got to read about the Fall of man and how sin entered the World. How Noah showed favor in the eyes of God and asked him to build an Ark to save his family during the time of the big flood where God destroyed everything but then showed us His promise through the beautiful rainbow in the sky.

The Fall of Sodom and Gomorrah and how Abraham pleaded to God to save those within the city walls if they were not sinning. We got to read about the life of Abraham and his children Jacob and Esau. How the two spend their young lives fighting over birthright and their fathers blessings to find themselves back together again in a powerful reunion. The journey of Jacob and his father in law. How he loved Rachel and needed to marry Leah, Rachel's sister first in order to marry Rachel while working on the land for his father in law.

How God gives Jacob a new name.. The name of Israel. Genesis 35:10-12 "God appeared to him again and blessed him, God said to him, "Your name is Jacob, but you will no longer be called Jacob; your name will be Israel. So he named him Israel." And God said to him, "I am God Almighty, be fruitful and increase in number. A nation and a community of nations will come from you, and kings will be among your descendants. The land I gave to Abraham and Isaac I also give to you, and I will give this land to your descendants after you.".

We continue in the book of Genesis learning about Joseph. His dreams and his brother selling him into slavery. We get to see the hand of God on Joseph throughout his life and how he saves thousands of people through the long famine including Joseph's family that he gets to reunite with before his father dies.

Exodus brings us to the life of Moses.. From him being taken from his birth family down a river and given to the Egyptian's, we get to read the story of his life saving his people from the Egyptian's and leading them in the desert to the promise land. The plagues that God gives to the Egyptian's while Pharaoh's heart is hardened until he finally sets them free but to find they may be running away, he has them chased to then see Moses by God's hand part the sea to save the Israelites from the Egyptian's.

God gives us the 10 Commandments and writes them on stone with his powerful finger. Exodus 31:18 "When the Lord finished speaking to Moses on Mount Sinai, he gave him the two tablets of the covenant law, the tablets of stone inscribed by the finger of God."

He explains the building of the Tabernacle where God will reside so He may be with His people. Appointing Aaron as priest along with his son's. Exodus ends with the completion of the Tabernacle by the specific directions from God.

------------------------------------------------

September 1st. That's today and this month has 30 days.. Perfect amount of days to do a 30 day challenge. Since I've lost 20+ pounds I'm in need of a serious toning challenge. Something to kick me into gear and allow me to do more than walk and run.. I found this wonderful challenge on 30dayfitnesschallenges.com. I've done a few of their challenges in the past..

I'm excited about doing another challenge. This time I want to work two areas that I want to see some results.. Abs and Legs... I really want to tone up my back part of my legs more that running and walking isn't taking care of and to really work on targeting my ab muscles.. Who knows, maybe even work on seeing a six pack for the future.. who knows... This one below was calling to me..

30 Day Ab & Squat Challenge...




Starting TODAY I will be taking this physical challenge.. I plan to take a before picture and post it with my after picture on September 30th... Who's with me??

Let's get into shape together!!!! One plank and burpee at a time.... #30dayfitness
