Journey Through the Bible – 5

FIRST SAMUEL (Transition From Judges to Kingship) AUTHOR: Precisely who wrote 1 and 2 Samuel is not certain. The Jewish talmudic tradition says that it was written by Samuel. However, though 1 and 2 Samuel take their name from the prophet Samuel, the key figure of the early chapters, the prophet could not possibly have written more than part of 1 Samuel, since his death is recorded in chapter 25. But 1 Samuel 10:25 does attest to the fact that Samuel did…

Own the Vision – 2

Last week we spoke about why Springhill Church exists and that is people matter to God. They are of utmost importance to Him. People are the main reason that He has done so much including sending Jesus to redeem and save us. Why do we need to talk about the vision of our church? 1 Corinthians 1:10 NKJV (10) Now I plead with you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you all speak the same thing,…

JUDGES (Seven Cycles of Apostasy, Judgment, and Deliverance) AUTHOR: Tradition tells us that Samuel wrote the book, but its authorship is actually uncertain. Samuel may have assembled some of the accounts from the period of the judges and prophets like Nathan and Gad may have had a hand in editing the material (see 1 Chron. 29:29). The Hebrew title is Shophetim, meaning “judges, rulers, deliverers, or saviors.” Shophet not only carries the idea of maintaining justice and settling disputes, but it is also used…

Own the Vision – 1

Acts 10:38 NKJV (38) how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power, who went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him. I believe we all would agree that Jesus was anointed by God to fulfill His assignment. Philippians 2:5-8 TPT (5) And consider the example that Jesus, the Anointed One, has set before us. Let his mindset become your motivation. (6) He existed in the…

JOSHUA (Possession and Conquest) AUTHOR: Joshua DATE: 1400-1370 B.C. TITLE OF THE BOOK: Unlike the first five books of the Old Testament, this book appropriately takes its name from the chief human personality of the book, Joshua, the son of Nun, Moses’ servant. Joshua’s original name was Hoshea (Num. 13:8; Deut. 32:44) which means “salvation.” But during the wilderness wanderings Moses changed his name to Yehoshua, meaning “Yahweh is salvation” or “Save, Yahweh” (Num. 13:16). Joshua is a contracted form of Yehoshua. This amounted to a prophetic…

Mindset – 6

Colossians 3:1-2 NKJV (1) If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God. (2) Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth. Mindset: a mental attitude or inclination, a fixed state of mind What you believe about Jesus determines your eternal outcome but your behavior determines the quality of life you experience now as a believer in the earth. What you think…

Journey Through the Bible – 2

Jesus is the underlying theme of the entire Bible and specifically the Old Testament. Matthew 5:17 NKJV “Do not think that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I did not come to destroy but to fulfill. Matthew 5:17 NLT “Don’t misunderstand why I have come. I did not come to abolish the law of Moses or the writings of the prophets. No, I came to accomplish their purpose. Luke 24:25-27 NKJV Then He said to them, “O…

Colossians 3:1-2 NKJV (1) If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God. (2) Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth. Mindset: a mental attitude or inclination, a fixed state of mind 2 Corinthians 10:3-5 KJV (3) For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: (4) (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty…

2 Timothy 3:16-17 NKJV All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, (17) that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work. It has always been the plan of God for He and His Word to dwell in and among His people. Exodus 29:45-46 NKJV I will dwell among the children of Israel and will be their God. (46) And they shall…
