Job 22




1
Then Eliphaz the Temanite answered and said,
5
Is not thy wickedness great? and thine iniquities infinite?
6
For thou hast taken a pledge from thy brother for nought, and stripped the naked of their clothing.
7
Thou hast not given water to the weary to drink, and thou hast withholden bread from the hungry.
8
But as for the mighty man, he had the earth; and the honourable man dwelt in it.
10
Therefore snares are round about thee, and sudden fear troubleth thee;
12
Is not God in the height of heaven? and behold the height of the stars, how high they are!
13
And thou sayest, How doth God know? can he judge through the dark cloud?
14
Thick clouds are a covering to him, that he seeth not; and he walketh in the circuit of heaven.
15
Hast thou marked the old way which wicked men have trodden?
16
Which were cut down out of time, whose foundation was overflown with a flood:
17
Which said unto God, Depart from us: and what can the Almighty do for them?
18
Yet he filled their houses with good things: but the counsel of the wicked is far from me.
19
The righteous see it, and are glad: and the innocent laugh them to scorn.
20
Whereas our substance is not cut down, but the remnant of them the fire consumeth.
21
Acquaint now thyself with him, and be at peace: thereby good shall come unto thee.
23
If thou return to the Almighty, thou shalt be built up, thou shalt put away iniquity far from thy tabernacles.
24
Then shalt thou lay up gold as dust, and the gold of Ophir as the stones of the brooks.
25
Yea, the Almighty shall be thy defence, and thou shalt have plenty of silver.
26
For then shalt thou have thy delight in the Almighty, and shalt lift up thy face unto God.
27
Thou shalt make thy prayer unto him, and he shall hear thee, and thou shalt pay thy vows.
28
Thou shalt also decree a thing, and it shall be established unto thee: and the light shall shine upon thy ways.
29
When men are cast down, then thou shalt say, There is lifting up; and he shall save the humble person.
30
He shall deliver the island of the innocent: and it is delivered by the pureness of thine hands.

Haggai 1




1
In the second year of Darius the king, in the sixth month, in the first day of the month, came the word of the LORD by Haggai the prophet unto Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, governor of Judah, and to Joshua the son of Josedech, the high priest, saying,
2
Thus speaketh the LORD of hosts, saying, This people say, The time is not come, the time that the LORD's house should be built.
3
Then came the word of the LORD by Haggai the prophet, saying,
6
Ye have sown much, and bring in little; ye eat, but ye have not enough; ye drink, but ye are not filled with drink; ye clothe you, but there is none warm; and he that earneth wages earneth wages to put it into a bag with holes.
7
Thus saith the LORD of hosts; Consider your ways.
8
Go up to the mountain, and bring wood, and build the house; and I will take pleasure in it, and I will be glorified, saith the LORD.
9
Ye looked for much, and, lo it came to little; and when ye brought it home, I did blow upon it. Why? saith the LORD of hosts. Because of mine house that is waste, and ye run every man unto his own house.
10
Therefore the heaven over you is stayed from dew, and the earth is stayed from her fruit.
11
And I called for a drought upon the land, and upon the mountains, and upon the corn, and upon the new wine, and upon the oil, and upon that which the ground bringeth forth, and upon men, and upon cattle, and upon all the labour of the hands.
12
Then Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, and Joshua the son of Josedech, the high priest, with all the remnant of the people, obeyed the voice of the LORD their God, and the words of Haggai the prophet, as the LORD their God had sent him, and the people did fear before the LORD.
14
And the LORD stirred up the spirit of Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, governor of Judah, and the spirit of Joshua the son of Josedech, the high priest, and the spirit of all the remnant of the people; and they came and did work in the house of the LORD of hosts, their God,
15
In the four and twentieth day of the sixth month, in the second year of Darius the king.

Daily Readings & Thought for December 18th. “BE STRONG”

 Zerubbabel is the “governor of Judah” at the time Haggai uttered his prophecy, the prophet is contemporary to Ezra and Nehemiah and there are dozens of references to him in their books – and Haggai, whose 2 chapter prophecy we read today, is referred to by Ezra (5 v,1 & 6 v,14) as being “the prophet” who was present. Haggai ...

Thought for December 18th. “EMPTY NOTHINGS?”

1 John 5




1
Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ is born of God: and every one that loveth him that begat loveth him also that is begotten of him.
2
By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, and keep his commandments.
5
Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God?
6
This is he that came by water and blood, even Jesus Christ; not by water only, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit that beareth witness, because the Spirit is truth.
9
If we receive the witness of men, the witness of God is greater: for this is the witness of God which he hath testified of his Son.
10
He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself: he that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son.
12
He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.
13
These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.
15
And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him.
17
All unrighteousness is sin: and there is a sin not unto death.
20
And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life.
