September 10, read through the Bible in a year.

Today we read Second Thessalonians 3 and two chapters of Isaiah.

September 10: 2 Thessalonians 3, Isaiah 64, Isaiah 65 (click on the chapter to begin reading).

2 Thessalonians 3. Paul requests prayer, then he warns against idleness. Finally the letter ends with a benediction.

Isaiah 64. A prayer of petition and penance: “All our righteousness are as filthy rags”

Isaiah 65 is rich. It tells of judgment and salvation, the new creation and the new Jerusalem.

Isaiah 65, Judgment and salvation, the New Creation, the New Jerusalem

 

 

The new Jerusalem is as a dream. Many have imagined it different ways. Here is the Salvation Army singing a capella “I have heard of a City” with the melody of a Russian fold song.
