Day 56: 309 days left…88 books to go!

Numbers 29-36  End of the Book
  •  "...and you may be sure that your sin will find you out."  Numbers 32: 23
Finished with the book of Numbers...on the whole, neither Leviticus or Numbers had a lot of content that I found enlightening...but they do serve an important historical purpose and they do shed light on what life looked like for the believer before Jesus came to earth...

Acts 17-18:23
  •   One of my dad's favorite passages..."Now the Bereans were of more noble character thatn the Thessalonians, for they received the messag with great eagerness and examined the Scriptures every day to see if what Paul said was true."  Chapter 17, 11
  • POWER CHAPTER:   "The God who made the world and everything in it is the Lord of heaven and earth and does not live in temples built by hands.  And he is not served by human hands, as if he needed anything, because he himself gives all men life and breath and everything else.  From one man he made every nation of men, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he determined the times set for them, and the exact places where they should live.  God did this so that men would seek him and perhaps reach out for him and find him, though he is not far from each one of us.  For in him we live and move and have our being.  As some of your own poets have said, 'We are his offspring.'  Therefore since we are God's offspring, we should not think that the divine being is like gold or silver or stone- an image made by man's design and skill.  In the past God overlooked such ignorance, but now he commands all people everywhere to repent.  for he has set a day when he will judge the world with justice by the man he has appointed.  He has given proof of this to all men by raising him from the dead."  Chapter 17, 24-31
