  • Yeshua/Jesus Speaking on Future Events
    this passage contains what happened to the apostles after Yeshua/Jesus went back into Heaven and the Holy Spirit came down
    1. An Intresting Thought
      Our Heavenly Father is merciful yet this word seems harsh after being told this why would you as mother go on and enter the city knowing that when you do your child will die .....would not a better response be to repent and send a messenger instead
      1. Good thoughts! I'm sure they thought it a more powerful plea and less offensive to send the wife of the king rather than just a messenger. And as we see, the messenger probably wouldn't have gotten the message back in time before the child would die, if he would die as soon as even the messenger entered the city. Maybe she obeyed the prophet out of fear for herself if she disobeyed, or that she hoped she could somehow get back in time to change it, or also even that if the child would die no matter what, she would rather he die and be buried as the prophet said than to risk that he die like the others and be eaten by dogs or birds as the prophet said. Interesting indeed!
    2. Becoming Holy
      In this passage we see the removal of the hindrances of idol worship being removed so that they can walk Holy (this also includes the idols taken from Labans house )
      1. i would like to try studying like this. how do you do it on your computer?
        1. Hello . I think these are the steps you'll need to do: 1) Get Logos basic which is free, but you have to "purchase" it so the system knows you as a user: https://www.logos.com/basic 2) Get this course, also free: https://www.logos.com/product/122790/lt271-study-the-bible-with-logos-jonah-1 2) Install Logos: https://www.logos.com/install 3) Launch Logos on your computer or laptop and let it download the LT271 course and other library resources. 4) Come back here and click on the "Join Reading Plan Banner" at the top of the page. I think that should do it. Hello , did I leave anything out? Please correct me as needed. Thanks!
      2. In the Greek Paul uses a repetition play on the word “hyper” (above, beyond) with “ὑπὲρ...ὑπερεκπερισσοῦ“ so that some early manuscripts left out the first occurrence, thinking it was an accidental repeat. Paul was actually emphasizing just how far beyond our imagination God’s abilities are.
        1. Faith In The Fight
          Here in this Passage an interesting twist is noted an armor bearer normally goes first ,because they carried the shield ....in this fashion Yeshua/Jesus is our armor bearer yet we also wear armor and carry a shield to fight , Johnathan and his armor bearer worked together just as the Father,Son, and Holy Spirit work together with us to defeat our enemies
          1. being careful on judgement
            Hannah was crying from the depths of her heart and Eli thought she was drunk yet in the passages before we see how Eli's sons were drunk ,stealing,raping and yet He did nothing and here is a woman who is pouring out her heart and he calls her drunk then tells her to go in peace
            1. A Hard Word
              This was a hard thing to hear and also speak ,I cannot even think what Ezekiel was going trough upon hearing this word yet He chose to still walk in obedience so that Israel would hopefully turn and repent (which they did do eventually )
              1. Yet its still shows how much GOD loves us and will do whatever is needed to reach us
              2. Make sure you are reading and interpreting the Old Testament through Jesus and New Covenant eyes. Yes God does not change BUT His covenants did.
              3. Amen
            2. A Question
              Not trying to be disrespectful ,because I agree with a lot of what you have written yet on this part I have to strongly disagree 1 because GOD never changes,2 the gifts of the Holy Spirit are still in full swing and 3 i have seen many of these things happen personal y thank you for your time

                I think the caution is that just because God did something one way doesn’t make that a “magic formula” for us to try to repeat to make it happen again. The author is emphasizing looking for the principle rather than repeatable formula or specific means, as God can do anything in any way and usually does in different ways rather than the same way every time. To your point, I don’t know if the author believes miracles have ended, but I think he’s cautioning against those who may fall into the trap of the 7 sons of Sceva (Acts 19).
              2. In that I agree if GOD is not with you do not play with fire
