- Insight from Butler’s Daily Bible Reading: Psalm 1—Paths. There are just two paths in life. •Path of good: it involves separation from evil, the Scriptures in the heart, and success on the journey. •Path of guile: its value is chaff; its verdict is condemnation.
- Insight from Butler’s Daily Bible Reading: Isaiah 40—Soothing by God. •Comfort from God: the change from condemnation to consolation is evident right at the beginning in this chapter. •Calling for God: this prophecy speaks of John the Baptist calling men to Christ. •Communication from God: it especially tells about the brevity of life and the eternality of the Word of God. •City of God: some encouraging words about Zion (Jerusalem). •Care of God: the care by the Great Shepherd, a reference to Christ. •Character of God: two truths are emphasized about His character—His creating powers and His contrast to idols. •Capability from God: especially for those who wait upon Him.
- Greetings Everyone!!! I just wanted to get a general feel for the over eschatology within the group. Im trying to do a comparative study the book of revelation and would like some real-time input!!!
- Here's this week's Scripture passage as we get closer to the New Year!
- Insight from Butler’s Daily Bible Reading: Isaiah 43—Redemption. Israel’s return to the land is spoken of as redemption. •Reassurance of redemption: Israel is not to fear; God will redeem and preserve them. •Reason for redemption: Israel is precious to and loved by God. •Ransom for redemption: Egypt, Ethiopia, etc. are made a ransom for Israel—they died (in judgment) so Israel could return to the land. •Regathering in redemption: Israel will be regathered from around the world and taken back to Palestine. •Reporting of the redemption: Israel will be witnesses of Jehovah’s redemptive work (the true Jehovah witnesses are the Jews not the cult that claims this name). •Revenge in the redemption: God will take vengeance on Israel’s enemies. •Rebuke for the redeemed: for their lack of devotion to God—“thou has been weary of me, O Israel.” •Removal in redemption: God will blot out their sins and not remember their sins.
- Here’s this week’s Scripture passage! Have a blessed Christmas!
- Insight from Butler's Daily Bible Reading: Isaiah 7—Villains. •Suppression by the villains: Samaria (northern Israel led by their king Remaliah) and Syria (led by their king Rezin) united to attack Judah whose king at that time was Ahaz. •Sign about the villains: the virgin birth (v. 14) was the sign that the villains would not succeed against Judah—this sign was a prophesy of the virgin birth of Jesus Christ as referred to in Matthew 1:22, 23. •Siege after the villains: Judah would be attacked by Assyria because of Judah’s wickedness.
- Due to Internet going down tomorrow with the flooring replacement, posting this early.
- Insight from Butler’s Daily Bible Reading: Psalm 104—Creating by God. The creation Psalm. It is like early chapters of the book of Genesis. •Power for creating (vv. 1–5): “laid the foundations of the earth.” •Partitioning in creating (vv. 6–9): dividing the land from the water. •Provisions in creation (vv. 10–18): providing of water, vegetation, and food for animals and man. •Periods in creating (vv. 19–23): sun and moon for day and night periods. •Ponds of creation (vv. 24–26): the seas and its traffic and inhabitants. •Philanthropy of creation (vv. 27–30): creation is dependent upon the Creator for sustaining of life. •Praise for the Creator (vv. 31–35): praise for God’s perpetuity (He is eternal); power (He looks and the earth trembles; He touches and the earth smokes); preciousness (meditating on Him is sweet); and purity (He consumes the wicked).
- Happy Thanksgiving!

- Insight from Butler’s Daily Bible Reading: Psalm 100—Goodness of God. •Praise for His goodness: in song (v. 1); in service (v. 2); in the sanctuary (v. 4). •Particulars of His goodness: we are formed by God (creation); in the family of God (“his people”); and favored by God (mercy.).
- Insight from Butler’s Daily Bible Reading: Psalm 27—Satisfaction. The Psalmist is satisfied with •God’s salvation: so great he fears no one. •God’s sanctuary: wants to dwell in it all his days. •God’s security: in His pavilion. •God’s steadfastness: parents may forsake but not God. •God’s statutes: teach me thy ways. •God’s strength: wants it.
