This will be a collection of verses from the Bible that I feel I should share or might be of some importance on a particular day. Some instances, because of the message involved, there will be a few verses instead of just one. If there is any explanation or translation corrections, I will do so. This probably won’t be exactly an everyday thing since I have health issues and anything can happen on any particular day.
I do want to thank the Lord God and Lord Yeshua for bestowing upon me a great blessing of understanding completely yhings that were revealed to me many years ago about the struggle I would endure for the next fifteen years and that those days are coming to an end very soon. A blessing for my forty day fast and my works. There was only one path given for me to travel, but finally I’m coming home. Praise God and our Saviour, Lord Yeshua!
2/14/14: Matthew 11:25 & Luke 10:21 “At that time Jesus answered and said, ‘I thank You, oh Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because You have hid these things from the wise and prudent, and have revealed them unto babes.’” -The wise just meant educated. Corrolate this verse with what is going on today. Personal geniuses couldn’t fill a thimble with their wisdom.
2/15/14: Acts of the Apostles 9:5 “And he (Paul) said, ‘Who are You, Lord?’ And He said, ‘I am Jesus, whom you persecute: it is hard for you to kick against the pricks.’” -A prick was a wooden spike part of a plow that would till the ground as an ox walked. If the ox wouldn’t walk, the prick could be angled upward to jab at the ox in order to get it to move. Sometimes, however, the ox would kick behind itself against the prick causing more pain and injury. Jesus saying this meant that He had been calling Paul for a while to come to Him, but instead Paul reacted against the calling, driving him to hunt Christians down. Christ would not let go of bringing Paul to Him because Paul was one of the elect. As I’ve written here, the elect can be hardheaded (possibly due to our nature from time’s past), but God will eventually make them not only answer their call, but also make sure they are where He needs them in every way. Paul became one of the greatest apostles and suffered greatly to spread the Gospel of Christ. Not one of those early Christians that Paul helped condemn, some to death, condemned Paul after his death, including the first martyr Stephen. I guarantee you that. I bless and all should bless Paul for his determination to spread the Gospel that Jesus was Lord through so much suffering, and he’s still teaching disciples today. What a fellowship we have!
2/16/14: “All they that see Me laugh at Me to scorn: they portrude their lips, they shake the head, saying,” “‘He trusted on the Lord, that He would deliver Him: let Him deliver Him seeing He delighted in Him.’”- These two verses were not from the gospels, but from Psalm 22:7-8 written around 1000BC. This whole psalm was written about the Lord on the cross to which He was referring to when He quoted “My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?” He wasn’t speaking to God on the cross, but instead quoting the first part of Psalm 22 to show He was indeed the Son of God.
2/18/14: Isaiah 29:14 “Therefore I will proceed to do a marvellous work among this people, even a marvellous work and a perplexity: for the wisdom of the knowledgeable will be removed and the understanding of the smart shall be hidden.”
2/19/14: 1st Corinthians 7:4 “The wife has no power over her body, but the husband does, and likewise a husband has no power over his body, but the wife does.”
2/20/14: Hebrews 4:14-15 “Seeing then that we have a great High Priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold strongly our profession.” “For we have not a High Priest which cannot identify with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in ALL points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.” -This proves 100% that Jesus, our Christ had the ability to sin, but did not, for anyone who thinks on the contrary.
2/20/14: Isaiah 2:4 “And He shall judge among the nations, and rebuke many people: and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they know war anymore.”
2/22/14: Hosea 6:2 “After two days He will revive us (Israel): in the third day He will raise us up and we shall live in His sight.” -This was when the prophet Hosea was speaking to Israel about their restoration after being scattered by Assyria and Babylon. As it is written, to our Lord a day is as a thousand years. After 2500 years, or during the second day to our Lord, Israel was once again established as a nation. Another prophecy that no atheist or believer in any other religion can explain away.
2/23/14: Leviticus 26:27-33 “And if you will not after all this hearken to Me, but walk against Me;” “Then I will walk against you also in fury: and I, even I will chastize you seven times for your sins.” “And you shall eat the flesh of your sons and the flesh of your daughters shall you eat.” “And I will destroy your high places, and cut down your images, and cast your carcases upon the carcases of your idols, and My Soul shall abhor you.” “And I will make your cities waste, and bring your sanctuaries to desolation, and I will not smell the savor of your sweet odors.” “And I will bring the land to desolation: and your enemies which dwell therein shall be astonished at it.” “And I will scatter you among the heathen, and will draw out a sword after you: and your land shall be desolate and your cities waste.” -This was God warning the Israelites through Moses, so this was predicted well before it happened, and it most certainly happened. Let an atheist explain away this prophecy.
2/24/14: 1st Timothy 5:8 “But if any does not provide for himself, and especially for those of his own house, HE HAS DENIED THE FAITH, AND IS WORSE THAN AN INFIDEL.”
2/25/14: 2nd Peter 2:18-19 “For when they speak great swelling words of vanity, they allure through the lusts of the flesh, through much wantonness, those that were clean escaped from them who live in error.” “While they promise them liberty, they themselves are the servants of corruption: for of whom a man is overcome, of the same he is brought into bondage.” -Don’t let anyone entice you that sin is freedom and liberty, because you will be in bondage to it forever.
2/26/14: 2nd Thessalonians 3:10 “For even when we were with you, this we commanded you, that if any man refuses to work, neither should he eat.”
2/27/14: 2nd Thes. 2:3-4 “Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not arrive except there comes a falling away first (from Christ), and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition.” “Who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sits in the Temple of God, showing himself to be God.”
2/28/14: Genesis 45:5 “Now therefore do not be grieved, nor angry with yourselves that you sold me here: for God sent me here before you to preserve life.” -This was what Joseph said to his brothers after he revealed himself to them in Egypt. His brothers sold him into slavery and he wound up being a prisoner for sexual assault of his master’s wife, but was innocent. He was there a long while and suffered greatly. His ability to interpret dreams led him to be in charge of Egypt, second only to Pharoah. Pharoah’s dream that Joseph interpreted foretold a great famine following prosperity. It isn’t written exactly how Joseph was able to combat this famine other than storing food, but there is in Egypt the Bahr Yussef, or “waterway of Joseph” in Arabic. It’s a manmade canal that allowed for the Nile to flow in the lowlands which would allow the Egyptians to grow crops. It is well accepted by historians this waterway was done by Joseph, the son of Jacob.
Joseph for most of this time, and perhaps not until the moment he revealed himself felt anger towards his brothers for what they did to him, but his realization was right. This was God’s plan. Sometimes we don’t know what God has in store for us, but if He’s with you eventually the epiphone of His purpose will come to you.
3/1/14: Matthew 13:57 “And they (Nazarenes) were offended by Him. But Jesus said to them ‘A prophet is not without honor except in his own land, and in his own house.’” -Before they recognized Jesus by His relatives being present also, they listened to Him intently. After they recognized Him, they immediately became offended.
3/2/14: Matthew 22:17-21 “Tell us then, what do You think? Is it lawful to give tribut to Caesar or not?” “But Jesus perceived of their wickedness, and said, ‘Why do You tempt Me, you hypocrites?’” “‘Show Me the tribute money.’ And they brought Him a denarius.” “And He said, ‘Whose is this image and superscription?’” “They said to Him, ‘Caesar’s.’ Then He said to them, ‘Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar’s and unto God the things that are God’s.’” -What man could have come up with this on their own, but the Christ?
3/3/14: Exodus 12:23 “For the Lord will pass through to smite the Egyptians; and when He sees the blood (of the lamb) on the lintel, and on the two side doorposts, the Lord will pass over the door, and will not have the destroyer come into your houses to smite you.” -This is obviously where the term “passover” comes from, when the Lord passed over those who had the blood of a lamb on their houses as He killed the firstborn in the land of Egypt. It is not a coincidence that they were saved by the blood of a lamb, for we are all saved by the blood of the Lamb of God, our Lord Jesus Christ. Through the blood of the Lamb, we will be passed over for punishment when judgment comes. One last tidbit, the “destroyer” here is not Satan as some might think. That term for the destroyer as in Satan is “Abaddon”. The original Hebrew word in this verse was “shaw-KHATH”, which means “to decay”, “to cause ruin”.
3/4/14: Exodus 23:20-23 “Behold, I send an Angel before you, to show the way, and to bring you to the place which I have prepared.” “Beward of Him and hear His voice, and do not provoke Him: for He will not pardon your transgressions: for My Name is in Him.” “But if you do obey His voice, and do all that I speak; then I will be an enemy to your enemies and an adversary to your adversaries.” “For My Angel shall go before you, and bring you into the land of Amorites, and the Hitties, and the Perrizzites, and the Canaanites, and the Hivites, and the Jebusites: and I will cut them off.” – This Angel was Jesus Christ.
3/5/14: Matthew 16:26 “For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?” -Jesus to His disciples after He told them He would suffer at the hands of the scribes, elders, and chief priests and be killed.
3/6/14: Exodus 23:2 “You shall not follow the masses to do evil; neither shall you speak in a way against another to pervert justice.”
3/7/14: Acts of the Apostles 15:20 “But we (apostles) write to them (Gentile Christians) that they abstain from the pollutants of idols, and from fornication, and from things strangled, and from blood.” -James This was after a debate on what to do with the early Gentile Christians. They debated whether to circumcise them, have them stay away from the same foods that Jews abstain from. They were basically debating if they should turn the Gentile into a Jew. This ordinance was agreed upon by the apostles and was then sent to all the churches. There was still afterward by Jews to try to get Gentiles to become like Jews that Paul had to wrestle with basically all of his life.
