September 16, read through the Holy Bible in a year.

Philippians 2:1-11. The Apostle Paul urged the believers to imitate the humility of Christ. Verses 7-11 are in the form of a hymn and shows how Jesus, even though he always is God, emptied himself and became obedient to the cross, even unto death.

Isaiah 61. This is the year of the Lord’s favor. Jesus started his ministry finding this prophecy in the scroll of Isaiah and read it but stopped mid-sentence. It also gives “beauty for ashes” and proclaims the good news of salvation.

Isaiah 62. Zion’s new name will be called Hephzibah and the land will be called Beulah, salvation is coming.

April 28: Read through the Holy Bible in a year

Luke 4:1-21, Jesus ministry started with his Temptation in the wilderness, from which we get the 40 days of Lent. At every temptation initiated by Satan Jesus quoted scripture to show his total reliance on God and His word. Satan also used scripture, so watch out! Going to his hometown of Nazareth Jesus fulfilled the prophecy of Isaiah 61.

In 1 Samuel 28 David was among the Philistines and Saul consulted a woman with a familiar spirit, the witch at En Dor. The medium did bring up Samuel!

1 Samuel 29. The Philistines rejected David.

Luke 4:1-21, the Temptation of Jesus, Isaiah 61 prophecy fulfilled.

Luke 4:1-21, the Temptation of Jesus,  Isaiah 61 prophecy fulfilled.

 

The devil is good at using scripture to tempt the believer!

The Dead Sea Scroll of Isaiah is 54 segments long. Jesus had to scroll down for quite some time before he found the passage, even though he knew where it was!

Notice, Jesus ended the reading of Scripture in the middle of the sentence. We now still live in the time between “the acceptable year of the LORD and the day of vengeance of our God”!

Luke 4. Jesus ministry starts with his Temptation in the wilderness, from which we get the 40 days of Lent. At every temptation initiated by Satan Jesus quotes scripture to show his total reliance on God and His word. Satan also uses scripture, so watch out! Going to his hometown of Nazareth Jesus fulfills the prophecy of Isaiah 61, but in his hometown he is rejected. Going forward, Jesus casts out an Unclean Spirit and heals many.

Deuteronomy 28 specifies blessings for obedience and lots of curses for disobedience.
