Joshua 14, 15 In our reading today we have the inheritance of Judah’s geographical boundaries  listed (Joshua .15:20-63). Notice carefully that Gaza and Hebron are included (Joshua 15:47 and 15:54). Now because of today’s political environment that would be a much disputed fact, but according to the promises that God made to Israel, it will […]

Joshua 11-13 In our reading today we have the combined Kings and kingdoms that Moses and Joshua conquered with the children of Israel. A total of 31 kings and kingdoms (Joshua 12). Some Bible scholars have taught erroneously that Israel going into the land of Canaan is a type and foreshadow of us going to […]

Joshua 4-6 In our reading today we have not the “parting” of the Jordan River, as what happened forty years earlier in the “parting” of the Red Sea. No, in this case the Jordan river was literally emptied out. The Jordan river valley was emptied from the city of Adam all the way to the […]

Joshua 1-3 In our reading today we have one of my favorite verses. Joshua 1:8 “This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way […]

Deuteronomy 33, 34 In our reading today we get another nugget concerning the blessing of Moses upon the tribes of Israel, in this case Zebulon. “They shall call the people unto the mountain; there they shall offer sacrifices of righteousness: for they shall suck of the abundance of the seas, and of treasures hid in […]

Deuteronomy 31, 32 In our reading today we have an interesting phrase concerning Israel in the Song of Moses (Deuteronomy 32:1-43). In this song Moses mentions about Israel getting “oil out of the flinty rock”. Israel has recently discovered 250 billion barrels of oil shale reserves. Shale is rock, and the way to remove the […]

Deuteronomy 29, 30 All through the Bible there are passages of Scripture separated by other whole books of the Bibles and sometimes by centuries in time, but they all speak about the same event and fill in missing pieces of information. For instance, you have the “tree of life” in Genesis 3:22-24, and in Revelation […]

Deuteronomy 28 The first 14 verses of Deuteronomy 28 deal with the blessings of obedience, while the next 54 deal with the curses of disobedience. Just about every horrible thing that could happen to a person is given in this list. Many of the verses deal with sickness and disease, some deal with financial ruin, […]

Deuteronomy 26, 27 In Deuteronomy 27 we see Moses giving Israel instructions for building an altar for burnt offerings and peace offering once they got into the Promised Land. After the sacrifices, six tribes were to be on one mount speaking the blessings and six tribes on another mount speaking the curses, to charge the […]

Deuteronomy 23-25 The last three verses in the reading today is the account of Amalek, Israel’s desert enemy after leaving Egypt and as they trekked to Mount Sinai. Amalek was an enemy who did not face you head on, but snuck around behind and picked off the weak ones bringing up the rear. That is […]
