A Promise from God and Impossible Circumstances

The One Year® Chronological Bible , NKJV (Tyndale, 2013), January 8 God's promise to Abraham requires a waiting period of twenty-five years. Barrenness of womb prevents the couple from doing for themselves what God had promised to do for them. The passing of twenty-five years taught them that a promise from God is a fulfillment by God. Isaac learned this truth from his father and mother; therefore he prayed to God and waited twenty years for God to fulfill what He had... Read More

Faith or Presumption, What's the Difference?

The One Year® Chronological Bible, NKJV (Tyndale, 2013), January 7  After nearly forty years of walking with God, Abraham doesn"t blink an eye when God instructs him to take Isaac up on the mount and offer him to the Lord (Gen. 22). Abraham has learned a number of truths about God: God is good, knowable, and trustworthy. God's ways differ from man's. Faith in God pleases Him. Abraham also learns the difference between faith and presumption: Faith: ... Read More

One Choice, Many Consequences

The One Year® Chronological Bible , NKJV (Tyndale, 2013), January 6 God gives man the freedom to make choices, but the consequences are out of man's hands. Had Eve known that eating the piece of fruit from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil would cost her the death of one son, the cursing of another, problems in her marriage, eviction from the garden of Eden, and alienation from God, she would not have eaten the fruit. Consequences are always hidden and come later. One... Read More

Waiting on God

The One Year® Chronological Bible, NKJV (Tyndale, 2013), January 5 "So Sarai said to Abram, 'See now, the LORD has restrained me from bearing children. Please, go in to my maid; perhaps I shall obtain children by her"" (Gen. 16:2). Like a playground bully, the passage of time picks a fight with those who have a promise from God―to win through faith or to surrender through unbelief. Sarai surrenders her faith as ten years of waiting pass. She looks down at her... Read More

Progenitor of a Nation

The One Year® Chronological Bible , NKJV (Tyndale, 2013), January 4 The ten generations following the flood fill the earth with idolatrous people, including Shem's descendants, one of whom is Terah, Abraham's father. Joshua 24:2 fills in the informational gap in Abraham's background, "Thus says the LORD God of Israel: 'Your fathers, including Terah, the father of Abraham and the father of Nahor, dwelt on the other side of the River in old times; and they served...

Noah: Man of Faith, Preacher of Righteousness

One Year® Chronological Bible, NKJV (Tyndale, 2013), January 3 Ten generations and more than 2,000 years have passed when Noah, descendent of Seth, arrives on a scene of earthly violence and near total corruption-people drowning in sin. God appears to him and promises a flood that will destroy every living thing upon the earth. He instructs Noah to build an ark, fill it with two of every unclean beast and seven of every clean animal. Noah believes in the veracity of God's Word... Read More

The Two Paths in Life

The One Year® Chronological Bible, NKJV (Tyndale, 2013), January 2 A predator mars the beauty of the garden when he enters the garden. He speaks to the woman, not because she is weaker, but because her knowledge of God's instructions is secondhand--communicated to her by Adam. Will she trust God's goodness, honor God's designated authoritative order, and defer to God's revealed will, or will she act independently of her husband and her God? Will Adam exercise the...

Let the Story Begin!

One Year Chronological Bible, NKJV (Tyndale, 2013) - January 1 God's story begins with God, revealing crucial insights into His power and person: God speaks; nothingness becomes substantial, and chaos becomes ordered. God assesses what He creates, names it, and affirms its goodness. God enables the reproduction of life by creating both maturity (plants, trees, and animals) and potential (seed). He creates things both old and new. God creates systems and holds them... Read More

Bible Bookends

The One Year® Chronological Bible, NKJV (Tyndale, 2013), December 31 The final two chapters of the Book of the Revelation of Jesus Christ mirror the first two chapters in Genesis. These four chapters are bookends to the entire story of the Bible. In the beginning God walked with man in a beautiful garden, in the cool of the day. In the end God dwells again with His people-"Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people.... Read More

The One Year® Chronological Bible , NKJV (Tyndale, 2013), December 30 Seven is the number of perfection, and the Book of the Revelation contains seven blessings: "'Blessed is he who reads and those who hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written in it; for the time is near" (Rev. 1:3).
