Today’s readings.. (2 Chronicles 23), (Daniel 4), ( Acts 2)

We have valuable thoughts in all our readings today..  In Chronicles we read how the priest “Jehoiada took courage and entered into a covenant with the commanders …” [2 Chron 23 v.1] so that the kingship was restored and the evil queen mother – Ahab’s daughter – was destroyed. 

In Daniel we read chapter 4 and saw how parts of it were written by King Nebuchadnezzar himself who is humbled to bring him down from his excessive pride in saying, “Is not this great Babylon which I have built by my mighty power” [v.30].  He is humbled for seven years and then, he himself writes, “my reason returned to me and I blessed the most high and I praised and honoured him who lives forever” [v.34] He now has a true personal perception, born of experience, of the one and only real God.  Can we fully share his perception?  

He writes,” … all the inhabitants of the earth are accounted as nothing and he (God) does according to his will … all his works are right and his ways are just …” [v.35,37]

In Acts ch. 2 we read how the Holy Spirit came upon the 12 apostles on the Day of Pentecost.  As a result Peter is inspired to speak out a message that cuts the hearers to the heart leading to thousands being converted and baptised. 

What is really challenging for us to think about – is Peter’s quotation from a Psalm of David (v.25) applying it first to Jesus, then to all the believers, “I saw the Lord always before me, for he is at my right hand that I may not be shaken; therefore my heart was glad … my flesh always will dwell in hope … you have made known to me the paths of life.”  [v,25,26,28]

The more we read God’s word, may we more clearly see our Lord always before us so that we may not be shaken as our world disintegrates into chaos in these last days – as so many prophecies reveal it will.

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.
