February 29, read through the Holy Bible in a year in Power-point, with comments.

Today is leap day, February 29, and we could take the day off, but the Holy Bible is the most important book ever written and too important to ignore, even for a day. It is the word of God.

May I suggest we go back to the beginning.

The three chapters chosen for today are   Genesis 1 ,John 1 and  1 John 1 (click on the chapter to begin reading)

Both Genesis 1 and John 1 start with the words “In the beginning”. , Genesis 1 deals with the physical creation, but with a spiritual emphasis, laying the groundwork for spiritual understanding of how and why we exist. The gospel of John then deals with creation spiritually.

We are existing in time and space. The question is: What was there before time and space existed, before the beginning?

Answer: God, existing in three persons, God the Father, God the Son (the Word) and God’s Spirit, (the Holy Ghost).

They alone are eternal, everything else, including time and space, is created.

1 John 1 then starts from the beginning and deals with how we should live today, in time and space, with an eternal perspective.

November 26, read through the Bible in a year.

Today we read the first chapter of first John, one chapter of Proverbs and the last chapter of Daniel.

November 26: 1 John 1, Proverbs 25, Daniel 12 (click on the chapter to begin reading).

1 John 1.  From the Beginning, what was heard, seen and touched we proclaim, that is the Word of Life. How can we have fellowship with God and with one Another? The Apostle John tells us how.

Proverbs 25, a collection of more proverbs of Solomon collected after his death during the reign of Hezekiah.

Daniel 12. This chapter deals with the end times.  Many have tried to make a final timeline out of this and out of Revelation, but the book is sealed until the time of the end. As Jesus himself said: “Only the Father in heaven knows.”

1 John 1, From the Beginning, What was Heard; Seen and Touched, Fellowship with Him, Fellowship with one Another.
