 MORNING  | HISTORICAL BOOKS

BOOK 11 of 66  | 1 Chronicles 6

Signpost Words | ‘NO DEAD PROPHETS SOCIETY’

Highlight Verses | 1 Chronicles 6:4-15

Eleazar begot Phinehas, and Phinehas begot Abishua; à Johanan begot Azariah (it was he who ministered as priest in the temple that Solomon built in Jerusalem); Azariah begot Amariah, and Amariah begot Ahitub; Ahitub begot Zadok, and Zadok begot Shallum;  Shallum begot Hilkiah, and Hilkiah begot Azariah; Azariah begot Seraiah, and Seraiah begot Jehozadak. Jehozadak went into captivity when the Lord carried Judah and Jerusalem into captivity by the hand of Nebuchadnezzar. (NKJV)

Some Observations | 

Here are the sons all rightly listed. The Patriarchal lineage of the Bible is unquestionable and it is men who lead the people of God in worship, song,  preaching and teaching. Commenting on the lineage of Eliezer, Matthew Henry observes, “The successor of Aaron--- begins with Eleazar, who came out of the house of bondage in Egypt, and ends with Jehozadak, who went into the house of bondage in Babylon. Thus, for their sins, they were left as they were found, which might also intimate that the priesthood did not make anything perfect, but this was to be done by the bringing in of a better hope.”

Final Reflections  |

It seems it was brave Azariah who gets ‘mentioned in dispatches’ here, for he alone put his life on the line in confronting King Uzziah concerning his ‘crossing of lines,’ (2 Chronicles 26:17,18). All our present leaders are either in bed or in dread of Anti-Christ and are thus complicit in the sins of the nation and especially of it leaders. The only prophets we have seem to be non-confrontational liars, all singing girl-songs whilst looking for adulation and a quick buck.

EVENING | POETRY

BOOK 19 of 66  | Psalms 81,88

Signpost Words | ‘OF DERISION AND OF PROVISION’

Highlight Verses | Psalms 81:6-16

"I removed his shoulder from the burden; His hands were freed from the baskets.  You called in trouble, and I delivered you; I answered you in the secret place of thunder; I tested you at the waters of Meribah. Selah  "Hear, O My people, and I will admonish you! O Israel, if you will listen to Me! There shall be no foreign god among you; Nor shall you worship any foreign god. I am the Lord your God, Who brought you out of the land of Egypt; Open your mouth wide, and I will fill it. "But My people would not heed My voice, And Israel would have none of Me. So I gave them over to their own stubborn heart,  walk in their own counsels. "Oh, that My people would listen to Me, That Israel would walk in My ways! à He would have fed them also with the finest of wheat; And with honey from the rock I would have satisfied you."  (NKJV)

Some Observations | 

We would remove the burden from the shoulder, the heavy basket from the hand. God, however, removes the shoulder and the hand. This is not wordplay, but a focus on the person rather than the problem. God delivers more people from problems, rather than problems from people. Thus often times, our prayers are answered in our personal removal from situations and relationships. This is not counsel for divorce, but is counsel for peace, for safety & for health.

Final Reflections  |

God is our deliverer. God is our protector. God is our provider. Surely Israel should say, “If we have God, then we have everything!”
