Yesterday we heard the conclusion of Rehoboam’s reign, and the writer classed him as a wicked king. Then his son, King Abijah gave a truly amazing speech before his epic victory over Israel.
Today I chose to highlight two verses:
Pro. 30:5 [NLT Every word of God proves true.
He is a shield to all who come to him for protection.
//GNT “God keeps every promise he makes. He is like a shield for all who seek his protection. ]
6 If you claim that he said something that he never said, he will reprimand you and show that you are a liar.”
How ironic that the religious leaders would make a problem about picking and eating a few heads of wheat, or healing a man with just a word and no actions on the Sabbath, then on the Sabbath they went out and plotted to kill Jesus. That, is the kind of work that God forbids— not just on the Sabbath but any day of the week! Note that this wasn’t casual opposition.
GNT Translation notes:
Mat. 12:29 [NLT For who is powerful enough to enter the house of a strong man like Satan and plunder his goods? Only someone [like Me, who is] even stronger—someone who [can//could] tie him up and then plunder his house.//GNT “No one can break into a strong man's house and take away his belongings unless he first ties up the strong man; then he can plunder his house.]
32 Anyone who says something against [Me,] the Son of Man[,] can be forgiven; but whoever says something against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven—now or ever.
40 In the same way that Jonah spent three days and nights in the big fish, so will [I,] the Son of Man[,] spend three days and nights in the depths of the earth.
