For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.

John 3:16-17

Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.

Martin Luther King, Jr.

God cannot give us a happiness and peace apart from Himself, because it is not there. There is no such thing.

C. S. Lewis

With what shall I come before the Lord
and bow down before the exalted God?
Shall I come before him with burnt offerings,
with calves a year old?
Will the Lord be pleased with thousands of rams,
with ten thousand rivers of olive oil?
Shall I offer my firstborn for my transgression,
the fruit of my body for the sin of my soul?
He has shown you, O mortal, what is good.
And what does the Lord require of you?
To act justly and to love mercy
and to walk humbly with your God.

Micah 6:6-8

I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.

John 10:10b

Do all the good you can. By all the means you can. In all the ways you can. In all the places you can. At all the times you can. To all the people you can. As long as ever you can.

John Wesley

Faith does not eliminate questions. But faith knows where to take them.

Elisabeth Elliot

True faith means holding nothing back. It means putting every hope in God’s fidelity to His Promises.

 12 Prophets, one question: a study of the Minor Prophets

In case you have missed it, we have this habit of grouping like things together and the bible is the same. Like-minded things have been placed together often by subject or idea rather than chronologically. We have grouped the Gospels and the Epistles (the letters written to churches or individuals) in the New Testament, in the Old Testament we find the first 5 books, what we call the Pentateuch or Torah, which is about the formation of God’s people Israel. We have grouped the wisdom literature or poetry, Psalms, Proverbs, Job, Ecclesiastes, and Songs of Songs, the histories that period of time when Israel took ownership of the promised land till the time when Babylonians came, conquered and exiled Israel, (Joshua- Chronicles) and then we have the Prophets.

The prophets are intermixed time wise with the histories, but we gather all seventeen of them together and place them towards the end Old Testament.

 

And again, we find that we further sort them into groups. 5 Major Prophets, and then we have the twelve minor prophets. These names do not imply that the major prophets are more important than the minor prophets but refer
