Today’s readings.. (Joshua 5,6), (Isaiah 10), (2 Thessalonians 1,2)

Today we read how Joshua and the emerging nation of Israel crossed the river Jordan – and – under divine guidance destroyed Jericho. Only Rahab (and her household) who knew and feared the true God are saved. Indeed, when we come to read Hebrews 11 we will see that she is listed among the examples of men and women of real faith.

Our Isaiah chapter (10) includes the prophecy that “in that day the remnant of Israel and the survivors of the house of the house of Jacob will no more lean on him who struck them, but will lean on the LORD, the Holy One of Israel, in truth. A remnant will return, the remnant of Jacob, to the mighty God.” [v.20/21] Is that starting to happen? We watch spiritual developments in Israel with great interest. Some in God’s nation are showing signs of accepting Jesus as their Messiah; we have attended at the Messianic Synagogue here and seen about 50 Jews who believe in Jesus.

Some prophecies are like jigsaw pieces in our hands which we tentatively fit together without locking them into place. We noted v.22 says, “Destruction is decreed, overflowing with righteousness” and pondered its application.

The nine verses of the last chapter of Hosea’s prophecy are most interesting in this regard, describing the final time when God “will heal their apostasy, I will love them freely for my anger has turned from them.” [v.4]

In contrast our chapters in 2 Thessalonians which plainly portray the return of Jesus describes those who will suffer God’s anger “when the Lord Jesus is revealed …inflicting vengeance on those who do not know God, and on those who do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus … when he comes on that day to be glorified in his saints, and to be marveled at among those who have believed …” [v.7-10]

Rahab will be there, those who heeded from their hearts Isaiah’s message will be there! What marveling will take place! But those who do not know God will not be there! That is understandable – but the greatest anguish will surely be in those who have known – but have not obeyed.

A small group of young Christadelphian brothers have taken the time to produce this valuable resource for the brotherhood and beyond, they are using the Bible reading planner developed by Brother Robert Roberts called The Bible Companion. The Bible Companion (or Bible Reading Planner) is a guide developed by the Christadelphians to aid reading the Bible. It was first produced by Robert Roberts when he was just 14 years of age, in about 1853, and revised by him over a number of years into its current format. Most Christadelphians use this plan each day and it was designed to help you read the old testament once and the new testament twice each year. These readings which we feature are recorded using the KJV or the NKJV of the Bible and we hope will be helpful to those who may struggle with time or who have poor eyesight.
