I am still reading along with you, and if I have this figured right, it looks like we will be done with Leviticus on Wednesday. I didn't realize how many offenses were capital crimes! I knew there was more than murder, but under the Old Testament, people were put to death for many things.
For those reading through the Bible, as 777 already pointed out, we should now be finished up with Leviticus, and now we start in Numbers. I know there are a lot of Bible reading programs that jump all over the place, but I have always found that it is better to read straight through. There is no problem with reading additional parts of the Bible as we read through, like reading in Psalms and Proverbs or New Testament books, but I have never seen the sense in jumping back and forth and calling that reading the Bible in a year. You may get through it in a year, but it is piece meal. I just don't think you learn the Bible as well that way, but that is just me. It is just how I have always done it.
But anyway, for those who are reading through with us, we are now in Numbers, and continuing at 3 chapters per day. If anyone would like to join us late, I would suggest you read 4 chapters a day until you catch up or something like that. As a matter of fact, if you start now and read 4 chapters per day all year, you will finish ahead of us. We are scheduled to finish at the end of December, and if someone goes at a pace of 4 chapters per day starting now, you will finish up in November. It is not to late to read through the Bible in 2020.
One thing that really stood out to me is how unhappy God is when we constantly complain about our circumstances and are unthankful. God provided the people with manna and they complained. Then there was the matter of unbelief that led to 40 years of wandering in the wilderness. I have trouble understanding why Aaron and Miriam murmured against Moses.
Just a reminder, that for those going through the Bible, we should be finishing up the book of Numbers this evening, and starting in Deuteronomy tomorrow morning.
I guess I got ahead . I finished chapter six of deut last night . I do have a reminder to give us all today . HANDS UP and REJIOCE N THE LORD and KEEP FEASTING EVER MORE on those bibles . And in all that we do may it please HIM . AND since we know that the very fruit of the SPIRIT does this , then let me remind us of what paul once said , WALK after the SPIRIT and not the flesh . FOR if we mind the SPIRIT we would not fulfill the vile evils of the flesh . We got our way OUT of every temptation . And as I have long said HIS NAME IS JESUS CHRIST . But let all remember this next reminder too , WE are the servants of whom we obey . I promise GOD will not be mocked if folks follow the flesh , then prepare to be destroyed . IF we confess our faults , THEN HE IS FAITHFUL and just to forgive us , but if we walk in willfull sin prepare to wail on the DAY of the LORD . For in truth this meant we never loved HIM , we loved OUR SIN more than HIM and we will be told DEPART from me , you who worked your inquity in my name , for I NEVER KNEW YOU . the pattern is , build the church up with pure bible reminders , if any does err , rebuke them fast , if any does err , confess and forsake those sins . FOR if one has the SPIRIT , the SPIRIT would not let a lamb have peace and rest while in error , and if we don't HEED that unction but continue on in that error PREPARE to have That heart hardened and destruction at that end .
