August 13, read through the Holy Bible in a year in Power-point, with comments.

Today we read the first chapter of The Apostle Paul’s letter to the Philippians and three chapters of Isaiah.

August 13: Philippians 1, Isaiah 11, Isaiah 12, Isaiah 13 (click on the chapter to begin reading).

Philippians 1. After the customary greeting Paul gave a heartfelt prayer for the believers. “Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ:” (This was the verse given to my wife and me when we joined the church after our salvation). Paul was in prison and this worked in favor of the Gospel. He also encouraged them to behave worthy of the Gospel and follow Christ and be partakers with him in suffering.

Isaiah 11 speaks of the Branch from Jesse, containing this gem “and a little child shall lead them”.  Even the animals will make peace.

Isaiah 12 is a hymn of praise to finish up the first part of Isaiah, the future of Israel.

Isaiah 13 is a prophecy against Babylon.
