Job’s lamentation to God: “How many are my iniquities and sins? Make known to me my rebellion and my sin” (Job 13:23).

In Psalm 17:3 David said, “You have tried my heart.… You have tested me and You find nothing.”

Then, in Psalm 26:2 he cried out, “Examine me, O Lord, and try me.” “Test my mind and my heart.”

David prayed for God to examine him, “Search me, O God, and know my heart; try me and know my anxious thoughts; and see if there be any hurtful way in me, and lead me in the everlasting way” (Psalm 139:23-24).

In Lamentations 3:40-43 Jeremiah urged his fellow Israelites, “Let us examine and probe our ways, and let us return to the Lord,” and the Lord challenged Israel to “Consider your ways!” Haggai 1:5-7.

And Paul wrote about the self-examination to be done before partaking of Communion: “…But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of the bread and drink of the cup (1 Corinthians 11:28).

What better way to start the new year than in prayer and an inward search into our spiritual life in Christ?

May you be blessed richly during this coming year!

“Now when I looked, there was a hand stretched out to me; and behold, a scroll of a book was in it” Ezekiel 2:9.

scroll

Scroll (Hebrew = meghillah, from the root galal = to roll) was a rolled manuscript usually inscribed on only one side (Ezekiel 3:1; Heb. 10:7; Rev 5:1-5; 10:8-11).  Ezekiel must receive from God’s hand what he delivers to the Israelites, i.e., lamentations, mourning, and woe, because of God’s coming judgments.

SUNDAY POST: The Book of Tears

The Book of Tears is referred to by David in his Psalm 56 verse 4:

lachrymatory

“You number my wanderings;
Put my tears into Your bottle;
Are they not in Your book?”

Whether the book referred to is the same book as the Book of Life, or another one, we cannot know. For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known” 1 Cor. 13:12.

SUNDAY POST: Part 3, The Book of Remembrance

We continue our look at the ‘books’ mentioned in Scripture; those that are mentioned in but are not the 66 stand-alone books of the Bible. This Sunday, we look at The Book of Remembrance spoken of by Malachi 3:16 which records the names of those “who fear the Lord and meditate on His Name.” We hope that the interpretations

Since last Yom Kippur, millions of Jews have begun searching for the Messiah, and for atonement for their sins.

Joel Rosenberg: “At sundown, we begin Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement.

Since last Yom Kippur, millions of Jews have begun a quest to find the Messiah. For reasons I cannot fully explain, Jews are suddenly
