ENGAGING GODS WORD
WHY DOES BIBLE STUDY MATTER
THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN BIBLE READING AND STUDYING IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN NIGHT AND DAY.
MANY PEOPLE OFTEN PICK UP THEIR BIBLE,JUST READ IT AND LOOK FOR A VERSE THAT WILL ENCOURAGE THEM, OR JUST ABSORB THEMSELVES IN THE WORD EVERY NOW AND THEN.
BUT THAT,S DIFFERENT THAN SITTING DOWN AND PREPARING TO STUDY THE BIBLE,YOU NEED SOME RESOURCES BIBLE DICTIONARY AND CONCORDANCE COMMENTARY.
ALL THESE THINGS ADD DEPTH TO YOUR TIME IN GODS WORD.
AND REMEMBER BIBLE STUDY MATTERS BECAUSE THE BIBLE IS GODS WORD TO THE WORLD AND TO HIS PEOPLE .
SO BIBLE STUDY IS VERY, VERY IMPORTANT IN GETTING US TO LIVE THIS LIFE WITH HIM.
,
STORING UP GODS WORD.
LETS LOOK AT A PASSAGE,THAT HELPS US GET TO WHAT IT IS THAT'S GOING HELP US.
THIS IS A PASSAGE IN :1-5
MY CHILD,IF YOU RECEIVE MY WORDS, AND STORE UP MY COMMANDS WITHIN YOU, BY MAKING YOUR EAR ATTENTIVE TO WISDOM, AND BY TURNING YOUR HEART TO UNDERSTANDING, INDEED, IF YOU CALL OUT FOR DISCERNMENT RAISE YOUR VOICE FOR UNDERSTANDING IF YOU SEEK IT LIKE SILVER, AND SEARCH FOR IT LIKE HIDDEN TREASURE, THEN YOU WILL UNDERSTAND HOW TO FEAR THE LORD, AND YOU DISCOVER KNOWLEDGE ABOUT GOD.
THIS PASSAGE IS AND EXHORTATION, PURSE WISDOM SEARCH FOR IT LIKE WEALTH,GOLD AND HIDDEN TREASURE.
AND KNOWLEDGE ABOUT GOD THAT WILL SHAPED LIFE,AS WELL AS OUR MINDS.
THERE SEVEN TYPES OF BIBLE STUDY
1. INDIVIDUAL BOOK STUDY
2.CANONICAL STUDY (GENESIS- REVELATION)
3. DOCTRINAL STUDY
4.WORD STUDY
5.THEMATIC STUDY
7. PASSAGE STUDY: THE KIND OF BIBLE STUDY THAT IS BASIC
A.CANONICAL STUDY IS CONFORMING TO A GENERAL RULE. (GEN. TO REV.)
B. DOCTRINAL STUDY: WE LOOK AT HIS ATTRIBUTES THAT ARE UNIQUE TO GOD ,HOW THE BIBLE WORKS ; BOOKS WORK TOGETHER.
C. THEMATIC STUDY: WORKING WITH WORDS IE WORKING WITH THEMES REQUIRES SEARCHING A CONCORDANCE .
D. WORDS STUDY: THE STUDY OF WORDS, WORKING WITH WORDS WILL HELP YOU SORT OUT WHATS GOING ON IN YOUR BIBLE STUDY.
LETS LOOK AT CHARACTER STUDY , THIS STUDY IS COMPLETELY DIFFERENT, A STUDY OF A PERSON AND CHARACTER.
1. I LIKE GIDEON AND HIS WORK OF DELIVERING ISRAEL.
2. WHICH WAS DIFFICULT TO TAKE IT REQUIRING MUCH ENERGY VIGOR , STRENUOUS. THE MISSION OF GIDEON.
3. GIDEON CAME ON THE SCENE DURING THE PERIOD OF THE JUDGES
4.A VERY DARK PERIOD,DARK DOING AND SAD HAPPENING
5. THE LAST VERSE OF THE BOOK OF JUDGES SUMS UP THE DARKNESS OF THOSE DAYS BY SAYING, IN THOSE DAYS THERE WAS NO KING IN ISRAEL; EVERY MAN DID THAT WHICH WAS RIGHT IN HIS OWN .EYES"(JUDGES 21:25).
THE JUDGES WERE RAISED BY THE LORD TO DELIVER THE NATION OF ISRAEL FROM GREAT CRISIS.
WHAT HAPPEN FOR THIS RUIN
( EXPLANATION)
THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL DID EVIL IN THE SIGHT OF THE LORD; AND THE LORD DELIVERED THEM INTO THE INTO THE HAND OF MIDIAN SEVEN YEARS.
THERE WAS A PRIMARY AND SECONDARY CAUSE. THE PRIMARY CAUSE WAS THE INIQUITY OF ISRAEL;THE SECONDARY CAUSE WAS THE INVASION BY MIDIAN.
THE INVASION BY MIDIAN
ISRAEL'S SECONDARY CAUSE OF ISRAEL'S INVASION OF THE MIDIANITES.
ISRAEL , TRIED TO MAKE THE SECONDARY CAUSE THE PRIMARY CAUSE.
THE CHARACTER OF THE INVASION
INVADING A LAND.
MIDIANITES WERE ARMED (135,000 MEN)

SIN EVER TAKES AWAY DOMIN

GIDEON TASK WAS NOT GOING TO BE EASY
IT WILL TAKE GREAT FAITH AND DEDICATION TO FIGHT THE GOOD FIGHT.
DEDICATION WE SEE VERY LITTLE TODAY.
(WHAT WAS THE EXTENT OF THE RUIN)
THE EXTENT OF THE OF RUIN OF IS TWOFOLD.
ISRAEL WAS IMPRISONED AND WAS WEAKEN,MAKE POOR BRING TO RUIN. (IMPOVERISHED)
ISRAEL WAS IMPRISONED
ISRAEL DID NOT PUT UP MUCH RESISTANCE, EVIL INVADING US SOMETIME.
RESISTED, THE DEVIL AND HE WILL FLEE.
THE HEART THAT DEPARTS FROM GOD IS LOST
SIN DISPIRITS MEN, AND MAKES THEM SNEAK INTO DENS AND CAVES."
ISRAEL WAS IMPOVERISHED
IT WAS AN ECONOMIC DISASTER
ISRAEL, HOWEVER WAS ONLY REAPING WHAT THEY HAD SOWN.
THEY HAD FAIL TO HONOR GOD WITH THEIR SUBSTANCES, ALL YOU COULD SEE WAS IDOLATRY.
SHE [ISRAEL] DID NOT KNOW THAT I [GOD] GAVE HER CORN, AND WINE,AND OIL, AND MULTIPLIED HER SILVER AND GOLD THEY GAVE TO BAAL[INSTEAD OF FOR JEHOVAH].
THE EFFECT OF THE RUIN
ISRAEL CRIED UNTO THE LORD BECAUSE OF THE MIDIANITES
TROUBLES OF ISRAEL RESULTED COMING BACK TO GOD.
(TWOFOLD WAY) IT PRODUCED PRAY AND IT PRODUCED PREACHING.
THE PRAYING IT PRODUCED
PRAYER WAS DELINQUENT,DILIGENT,AND DEFICIENT.
WHEN WE ARE WALKING IN DISOBEDIENCE TO HIM,WE HAVE LITTLE INTEREST IN PRAYING
PRAYER AND DISOBEDIENCE DO NOT GO TOGETHER.
WE MUST FOCUS ON DILIGENT
THE PREACHING IT PRODUCED
I BROUGHT YOU UP FROM EGYPT AND OUT OF THE HOUSE OF BONDAGE;

(RESPONSIBILITY)

(REBELLION)

REVELATION
BEFORE GIDEON COULD BECOME ISRAEL'S DELIVERER HE HAD TO FIRST COME TO KNOW GOD IN A VERY REAL , PERSONAL, AND REVERENT WAY.
GOD CAME TO GIDEON IN FORM OF THE ANGEL OF THE LORD,
