Jesus Christ is present in every single book of the Bible.
God’s precious Word has both the Old Testament and the New Testament .. In the Old Testament Jesus is miraculously concealed and in the New Testament Jesus Christ is magnificently revealed.
.. GOD’S WORD ..
As God’s children there is no doubt that the Bible is our absolute life-life .. but as we spend time meditating in God’s Word, how much do we really know about this priceless treasure and the life-changing Truth it carries ? ..
THE BOOK OF FIRST CHRONICLES :
.. GOD IS FAITHFUL ..
First Chronicles is a book that is simply overflowing with the most beautiful accounts of God's unwavering faithfulness towards His children.
God is faithful to you, and as you read First Chronicles may you be encouraged to forever remain faithful to Him !!
The book of First Chronicles is exactly that .. A Chronicle .. An account of the life of King David.
The first nine chapters chronicle the family line of the godly King David, and the remaining twenty chapters tell the story of his righteous reign over God's people.
FAITHFULNESS .. GOD'S FAITHFULNESS TO HIS PEOPLE .. this is the very precious theme of First Chronicles.
God continues to call on us to be faithful and He strongly advises us against unfaithfulness .. God's faithfulness to us guarantees His blessings in our lives and that is why God is so passionate about faithfulness.
As you spend time in First Chronicles, you will read the story of when David brings the ark back to Jerusalem.
Now the ark is a symbol of God's presence and as we read this ancient story, we are reminded of just how desperately we require the perfect presence of God in each and every area of our lives today.
God never wants you to under-estimate the power of faithfulness and the book of First Chronicles holds the lesson that faithfulness has rewards, while unfaithfulness will lead us into trouble.
The God we serve is an awesome Father, and thankfully for us when we are unfaithful God always, always, always takes us back because of His unconditional love and mercy .. however we will often still face the consequences of breaking our fellowship with God.
Let First Chronicles send waves of encouragement through every fiber of your being .. You remain steadfast and faithful to God in every situation in your life !!
DON'T YOU EVER FORGET THAT GOD IS FOREVER FAITHFUL TO YOU !!
Your Father is always near you .. He is always watching over you .. and He wants nothing but the absolute best for you .. YOUR FATHER LOVES YOU !!
You read the story of the arks return to Jerusalem, and as you do please consider all the various aspects of your life .. Your family .. Your Work .. Your friendships .. Your home .. Your spiritual life .. Your entertainment .. Your hobbies .. Your finances .. and all of the other things that concern you .. and then pray and ask God to increase His perfect presence more and more into your life.
.. JESUS CHRIST ..
In First Chronicles He remains .. Our Reigning King
