DAILY BIBLE STUDY: 2 Kings 24-25
VERSE OF THE DAY:
“Surely at the commandment of the LORD this came upon Judah, to remove them from His sight because of the sins of Manasseh, according to all that he had done, and also because of the innocent blood that he had shed; for he had filled Jerusalem with innocent blood, which the LORD would not pardon.” (2 Kings 24:3-4)
REFLECTION NOTES AND LESSONS LEARNED:
Our God is the Holy God (Psalm 99:9). Our God is the God of Love (1 John 4:16 and 1 John 4:18). Our God is the Merciful God (Psalm 103:8), and our God is the God of Justice (Isaiah 45:21). God does choose to forgive many of the sins that are committed by people (John 3:16-17), but there are some sins that God does not forgive or pardon (2 Kings 24:4 and Matthew 12:31). God truly values all human beings (Genesis 1:27), and God truly loves all people, and wants to save all people (John 3:16-17). In today’s study of the Bible, we read about how King Jehoiachin was taken captive to Babylon, and how Zedekiah was appointed to reign as the King of Judah, and eventually, how Judah was taken captive to Babylon by Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon and his army. As believers in God, it is always important for us to keep in mind that, Our God is the Holy God (Psalm 99:9), and that we do not want to loose the eternal salvation that God has provided and made available to all of us through the Lord Jesus Christ (John 3:16-17, Romans 3:23-26, and Romans 6:23). Amen. Thank God for His faithfulness. Amen. God loves all people, and God wants to save all the people of the world that will come to Him for eternal salvation (John 3:16-17). If you are not yet saved by God, repent and believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved by God. Amen. May God bless you today, everyday, and forevermore in Jesus’ Name, Amen.
WORDS OF JESUS:
“But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.” (Matthew 6:33)
“‘You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets.” (Matthew 22:37-40)
“Have faith in God.” (Mark 11:22)
“They will come from the east and the west, from the north and the south, and sit down in the kingdom of God. And indeed there are last who will be first, and there are first who will be last.” (Luke 13:29-30)
“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.” (John 3:16-17)
“If you know these things, blessed are you if you do them.” (John 13:17)
