September 30, read through the Holy Bible in a year.

2 Thessalonians 1. After the customary greeting and prayer of thanksgiving, the Apostle Paul dealt with God’s final judgment and God’s glory.

Jeremiah 27. The prophecies continue; Babylon will put nations under a yoke , Judah will serve Nebuchadnezzar.

Jeremiah 28. The prophet Hananiah was proven false by events. Rather than defeating Babylon, Judah would go into captivity.

Jeremiah 29. Jeremiah sent a letter to the exiles, a letter of hope, and a promise of return “And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart. And I will be found of you, saith the Lord: and I will turn away your captivity, and I will gather you from all the nations, and from all the places whither I have driven you, saith the Lord“. Then follows a message to Shemaiah, a not so promising message.

Psalm 85, of the Sons of Korah. A prayer of thankfulness.

August 24, read through the Holy Bible in a year in Power-point, with comments.

Today we read the last chapter of The Apostle Paul’s letter to the Colossians, two Psalms  and one chapter of Isaiah.

August 24: Colossians 4, Psalm 84, Psalm 85, Isaiah 39 (click on the chapter to begin reading).

Colossians 4, Paul gave final instructions, final greetings and exhortations  as he bade the Colossians (and the Laodiceans) God’s grace.

Psalm 84, of the Sons of Korah.  The famous 19th century English preacher Charles Spurgeon said this Psalm was entitled “to be called The Pearl of Psalms.” He once preached a whole sermon on verse 3:Yea, the sparrow hath found an house, and the swallow a nest for herself, where she may lay her young, even thine altars, O Lord of hosts, my King, and my God.

Psalm 85, of the Sons of Korah. A prayer of thankfulness.

Isaiah 39 tells of Hezekiah’s folly, how he showed all the riches of Jerusalem to the envoys from Babylon, and he said “There will be peace for our time”, like Neville Chamberlain did before WWII.
