Bible in 90 Days | Zechariah, Malachi: Day 70

Day 70! The final day of reading in the Old Testament for at least 20 more days :)

Zechariah. He continued to urge the Israelites to endure the opposition they were encountering, and spoke of hope that was coming in a messiah. The prophecies and visions in this book are many. You have to think about the fact that God is about to be silent for 400 years and this may be one of the last words that the people hear before John the Baptist comes on the scene. Interesting.

Malachi. He turned up the heat a little in confronting the sinful actions of the people of Israel. He called them to total obedience and worship. I love chapter 3 and 4. Very hope filled and looking forward to Christ.

Bible in 90 Days | Habakkuk, Zephaniah, Haggai: Day 69

Two more days of reading and writing and I will be out of the Old Testament and will welcome the New Testament! I’m splitting up the last 5 books. Reading less today and more tomorrow so that I can start Matthew on Monday. There may be chance yet of finishing the read before my birthday on April 5. We’ll see.

Habakkuk. Though God’s ways are sometimes mysterious… the righteous shall live by his faith.

Zephaniah. Message of revival and hope is told.

Haggai. This message is prior to the rebuilding of the temple and return to Jerusalem.

Bible in 90 Days | Joel, Amos, and Obadiah: Day 67

I’m back at it. Minor Prophets!

Joel. If I quickly glance over the three chapters in this book, I see a few underlined verses. Each the same message. “For the day of the Lord is near.” Something we should all continue to remember.

Amos. Very relevant to us today. Prosperity of a nation brings about a whole new host of issues that should be dealt with if we are to truly lead lives that reflect our creator.

Obadiah. Sovereign God and Savior.

Bible in 90 Days | Daniel and Hosea: Day 65 and Day 66

Daniel has become one of my favorite books in the Bible over recent years. Not really sure why, but reading the stories in it have become a “goto” if I don’t really have anything specific to read at the moment. Surely there are some incredible stories in it of God’s personal presence in the lives of Daniel and his friends.

The visions and interpretations that Daniel has later in the book are like those found in Revelation.

Hosea is an odd tale to read and you have to wonder, “what?” upon reading it. The depth of God’s love is shown in what we would consider a very strange way.

Bible in 90 #Fail.

Well… I failed. No chance of getting back to finishing this thing in 90 days. Stinks too, because I had great momentum. Very aggressive schedule and ambitious goal of writing my way through the 66 books of the Bible.

And I stalled out on day 66.

Hmm…
