#BAM #InYoFaceDevil Bible Study – 2 Chronicles 22-26

#BAM #INYOFACEDEVIL Bible Study w/Dr. June Knight 2 Chronicles 22-26 The Lord showed us in this Bible Study that he has order and boundaries. When we get out of his proper order, we are asking for judgment and his hand of protection is not upon us. When we turn towards God, we turn away from idols and cast them down. Then we get rid of occult and high things against God. We learned through this bible study that pride will take us out. Often before pride sets in we have disobedience. Then pride breeds death. It was an amazing Bible Study. 22 Ahaziah reigns in Judah, and does not follow God. Ahaziah joins with Jehoram king of Israel against Syria. Ahaziah is killed by Jehu when he kills Jehoarm as part of his quest to wipe out the house of...

#BAM #InYoFaceDevil Bible Study – 2 Chronicles 17-21

#BAM #INYOFACEDEVIL Bible Study w/Dr. June Knight 2 Chronicles 17-21 Dr. June examines this awesome section of the bible. Come to find out, it is EXACTLY what we are facing today in our time! Come to find out, the prophets that were speaking "positive swelling words" to the Kings were a judgment from God. God basically put them over to a reprobate mind. It causes us to realize that the craziness we see in the church now is a part of the judgment! You will have to watch this video to understand. 17 Jehoshaphat becomes king of Judah, follows the Lord, removes the high places, and strengthens Judah’s defences. Levites and other prominent figures are sent throughout Judah teaching the law. Judah enjoys peace, and becomes increasingly rich and powerful. 18 Jehoshaphat is allied in marriage with Ahab of Israel....

#BAM #InYoFaceDevil Bible Study – Esther 7-10

#BAM #INYOFACEDEVIL Bible Study w/Dr. June Knight Esther 7-10 7 Esther begs that her life, and the lives of the Jews may be spared. The king is angry. Haman pleads for his life before the queen – when the king enters, Haman trips onto her couch, so the king thinks he is assaulting her. Haman is hung on the very gallows that he made for Mordecai. 8 Esther is given Haman's property, and Mordecai assumes Haman’s place. Esther begs the king to save the Jews. The decree is irrevocable once ratified by the king, but a counter-decree is issued allowing the Jews to protect themselves on the day they were scheduled for annihilation. When the Jews hear the news, they rejoice. Many in the land become Jews, because fear of the Jews fell on them. 9 Jews defend themselves, killing...

#BAM #InYoFaceDevil Bible Study – Esther 1-6

#BAM #INYOFACEDEVIL Bible Study w/Dr. June Knight Esther 1-6 1 Ahasuerus rules Persia. He holds feast – it is lavishly described (rather unusually given the narrative minimalism of most of the rest of the OT). Queen Vashti holds a parallel feast for the women. When merry with drink, Ahasuerus demands that Vashti come and show off her beauty to his guests. Queen Vashti refuses, making Xerxes angry. His counsellors express concern that Vashti’s insubordination will set a bad precedent for wives everywhere. They advise that she is replaced so the right message is sent out across the land. 2 Ahasuerus looks for new queen, with many virgins brought before him. Esther (brought up by Mordecai, her cousin) is prepared, presented, chosen and made queen. Esther conceals her Jewish identity. Mordecai saves Ahasuerus' life by revealing a conspiracy against him by...

#BAM #INYOFACEDEVIL Bible Study w/Dr. June Knight Ezra 7-10 7 Ezra (a skilled scribe, an Aaronic priest and descendant of Zadok) gains Artaxerxes' favour, and returns from Babylon to Jerusalem. Artaxerxes commands Ezra to offer all the gold and silver found in Babylon for the temple. Ezra is also given the power to impose taxes, and enforce the Mosaic law. Ezra gives thanks. 8 Ezra (writing in the first person) provides a list of all those who accompanied him to Jerusalem. Ezra does not ask for a Persian escort, trusting in the Lord to protect them.

#BAM #InYoFaceDevil Bible Study – 2 Chronicles 32-36

#BAM #INYOFACEDEVIL Bible Study w/Dr. June Knight 2 Chronicles 32-36 Today we discovered that God has expectations for his people. When the Kings surrendered to God they:1. Gave up their idols2. Tore down all the high places (got rid of the occult)3. God hates pride and kings taking the glory4. God wants to be included in the matters of the kings5. The Kings of Israel mixed with culture and God did not like that. God calls the remnant to honor his precepts and laws. They are not ALLOWED TO MIX. 32 Sennacherib of Assyria has an arrogant speech delivered on the walls of Jerusalem and attacks Judah, but an angel strikes down every Assyrian man of valour. Hezekiah becomes sick, but is insufficiently grateful when his life is prolonged. Hezekiah acquires great wealth, builds an aquaduct, and shows Babylonian princes...
