Book 2: Zephaniah

Posted on

Okay, I may seem behind in my post, but I have been reading a book a day. So far, only one day behind but Saturday is my catch up day. 🙂

Zephaniah, another minor prophet whose book is near the end of the Old Testament. It is another call of judgement to Israel for not obeying His commandment and interesting enough, a call of judgment for those who act and even speak against Israel. (Look up Zep 2:8-10)

Now the part I do like is found in the last chapter of the book. (By the way only 3 chapters) Chapter three talks about the second coming of Jesus. I find this part so amazing. God had Zephaniah write about the 2ND coming about four hundred years before His first…so cool!

My favorite verse is the one I posted today as verse of the day. Here it is again if you missed it.

The Lord your God in your midst,
The Mighty One, will save;
He will rejoice over you with gladness,
He will quiet you with His love,
He will rejoice over you with singing. – Zep 3:17

Hopefully I find time to post about book three soon. This one is part of the Trailblazer Series…

Book 1: Nahum

Posted on

Okay…so where is Nahum in the Bible. Well, its found in the Old Testament and is after the book of Micah. Now, if you are really lost…just look towards the end of the Old Testament and you will find it.
It was fun to speed read it and I was able to make notes about what I read. In summary, the book of Nahum is a warning to the people of Nineveh. Nineveh is the city in the story of Jonah and the Whale…but that is an another book for another day.
Anyway, Nahum is God’s second warning to the people of Nineveh to repent of their sins. I think why I like this book. It shows that God always provides a second chance when we make mistakes. Unfortunately, the people of Nineveh are not going to listen to God, and this book talks about how they will be destroyed. I think this book can serve as a lesson for us to heed. We must repent from our sins, before it is too late…..

My Favorite verse found in Nahum….
Nahum 1:7 – The LORD is good, a strong hold in the day of trouble; and he knoweth them that trust in him.

Tomorrow is Sunday so I will not be posting….but I will have two books to write about on Monday.

Have a great day worshiping our Heavenly Father.

An interesting challange….

How To Read 365 Books A Year | CollegePlus!.

When I saw this link in my Feed Reader, I thought this would be impossible. Then I began to realized that my interest in reading has been the same since High School. Now that I am in my 20s, I realized that my reading genes have not improved with age. True, more responsibilities have been added since finishing High School, but my love for reading has not changed. So…this is what I’m going to TRY to do…read a book a day, and since books of the Bible do count as books. I am going to give it a try…

How about you??? Let me know what you think….also, this will also keep me accountable to post on a regular basis.
