You Owe Me!

The One Year® Chronological Bible , NKJV (Tyndale, 2013), March 16  Not a day goes by that forgiveness isn't required. By me. By others. You owe me money. You owe me honor and affirmation. You owe me an apology. You owe me forgiveness. You owe me a pay increase or a promotion. You owe me gratitude. You owe me quality time. You owe me my inheritance. You owe me for broken promises or broken items. You owe me exoneration from... Read More

A Place for His Name, A Practice Worthy of His Presence

The One Year® Chronological Bible , NKJV (Tyndale, 2013), March 15  God longs to be among His people. He tells Moses of a day when He will choose a place among all the tribes of Israel to place His Name. He also warns Israel against redefining who He is and worshiping Him the way others worship their gods: "Take heed to yourself that you are not ensnared to follow them, after they are destroyed from before you, and that you do not inquire after their gods, saying, 'How...

A People of Memory

The One Year® Chronological Bible , NKJV (Tyndale, 2013), March 14  Moses issues a number of warnings to Israel as they prepare to move into houses that they did not build and harvest vineyards and olive groves that they did not plant (Deuteronomy 6:10-11): Do not forget God. While slavery to the Egyptians had caused Israel to cry out to God, prosperity in the land of Canaan may cause Israel to forget God. Bible literacy will keep gratitude alive as Israel remembers her... Read More

Good Governance

The One Year® Chronological Bible , NKJV (Tyndale, 2013), March 13  Worldly men govern people by their own wisdom rather than by depending on the manifest wisdom of God. Oppression soon rules the day, and depression and despair characterize the people. Not so with God's people. God distinguishes Israel from all the peoples around them by making a covenant with them and by giving them regulations to guide their behavior, Surely I have taught you statutes and judgments,...

Learn from the Past, but Live in the Present

The One Year® Chronological Bible , NKJV (Tyndale, 2013), March 12  Israel's forty years in the wilderness finally come to a conclusion. Moses gives Israel a final "pep" talk (Deut. 1-8). First, he reviews how Israel has responded to God's leadership in the past: Instead of going up against the Amorites, the Israelites request that a spy delegation be sent to determine which route to take and to report back. After assessing the goodness of the land,... Read More

Spiritual Accountability

The One Year® Chronological Bible , NKJV (Tyndale, 2013), March 11  The Levites as a tribe were not assigned a territory like their brethren. They were, however, allotted towns within each tribe's territory. Forty-eight towns in twelve territories were given to them, along with limited pasture land surrounding the town. Since their primary role was to serve in the Tent of Meeting why does the Lord spread them throughout the land? The duties of the Levitical priesthood... Read More

The Benefits of Moving

The One Year® Chronological Bible, NKJV (Tyndale, 2013), March 10 Israel moves 40 times in 40 years (Numbers 33). God utilizes each of these moves as learning experiences for Israel in the wilderness as well as for future generations. Truths Israel learns about God while moving about in the wilderness: God is not like the gods of Egypt. He is personal, holy, and takes exception to complaining, sin, and unbelief. God is holy and will be treated as such by His people. His... Read More

What Instructions Require

The One Year® Chronological Bible , NKJV (Tyndale, 2013), March 9  Moses delivers to Israel the annual calendar of celebrations that they are to follow when they enter Canaan. These celebrations require the sacrifice of hundreds of animals who have no defects. Where will these wilderness wanderers obtain such a vast number? Finally, the Lord gives Moses one final instruction, "Take vengeance on the Midianites for the children of Israel. Afterward you shall be gathered to... Read More

Israel's Calendar, Communal Celebration, and the Impact of Sin

The One Year® Chronological Bible, NKJV (Tyndale, 2013), March 8 Moses prepares the "new" generation to enter the land of promise and gives them an annual calendar containing specific dates and sacrificial requirements for those dates: "And in the seventh month, on the first day of the month, you shall have a holy convocation" (Num. 29:1): Daily: two lambs without defect, a grain offering, a drink offering Weekly (on the Sabbath): two lambs a year old...

Bold-faced Sin

The One Year® Chronological Bible , NKJV (Tyndale, 2013), March 7  Zimri, a leader among the Simeonites, brazenly takes a Midianite cult prostitute into his tent-in broad daylight-in front of Moses. (Num. 25:14) Sexual sin normally begins "under the radar," but Zimri's boldness is an act of public defiance. In essence, he is saying, "I will do what I want to do, when I want to do it, where I want to do it, and with whom I want to do it. And no one is... Read More
